  • New MOBO needed to replace a faulty Asus p9X79Pro

    I've got a number of systems in the office that have been built using components from aria, the asus has been a total *** of a motherboard, and seems to have major issues with USB 3. So I need to replace the board with something that is better, we have a number of machines with the Gigabyte X99 Gaming 5 boards, could I buy this, or something similar that would be of use.

    The machine currently has a i7-3820 - 32GB ram (4 sticks), so want the upgrade options should it need more ram later.

    Thoughts?

    X79 and X99 are not interchangeable. You'll need to sort out another X79 board or upgrade the CPU and RAM.

      Thanks, didn't know that... any ideas on what's available as I've had a look on aria's website but can't see any x79 boards.

        You'll need to look on eBay as X79 is now in the end of life cycle. They are no longer produced.

          I think I may leave this forum, it seems to be full of the village people.​

            it has been updated with the most recent updates. It works, but whenever we plug in a USB 3 caddy it disconnects the caddys and all connected drives, USB two works fine. Known issues with Asus Mobo's, and I don't have the time to fix it or try fixing it, spent too much time on trying already.It was bought in 2012 I think so out of warranty now as welll
