I could cut myself with that board. Nothing wrong with ROG at all as they're supposed to be edgy. But jeeeeez. Still a good board just at a glance and I can't wait to see all the world records (and dream PC builds) with it.

Red and Black, yes ROG's color, but the looks of that board looks kind of cheap, especially the ram slots.
I think that heatsink with the ROG logo doesn't even do anything, it's just lights up. I like the Deluxe better, looks more elegant and that heatsink at least does something, since it's connected to the larger heatsink at the bottom where the X99 chipset is via heatpipe.

Here is their leaked Asus X99E WS!

hate the "transformers" style graphics, love the board...now to save up for the Corsair platinum ddr4 - pretty sure that the board, ram, and cpu are all within +/- $100. aw well at least i can reuse my loop.

That looks like 8 SATA ports plus two SATAe ports that could be used as 4 SATA ports. 10 USB 3.0 ports on the back panel plus two headers on the board. This thing is a monster of a board. It would probably be worth the $500. If only I could afford it.

Twelve SATA-IIIs as possible? Oh boy. Now, if one of you will send me a baker's dozen of those new First-Gen Seagate 8Tb drives, I'll start testing ASAP. Better send me 15 or 16, instead, just in case of DOAs or some of them are flung out of windows, suffer accidentally repeated sledge hammer blows or chainsaw tests. I mean - those things happen, right?

CPU air-cooling designs really need to start showing some creativity. They need to create a funnel-air cooler with air-tubes spiraling upward with copper-fins funneling downward, with a fan blowing down, thru them. Cooling all those 8 memory sticks, too, offering great clearance and all that peripheral area cooling. (I just hate having CPU air-coolers dictate my RAM usage.)

I wonder what Pratt & Whitney is designing these days? Didn't they have some excellent fans at one time? OK OK, those were called 'propellors' technically... but still... "prop wash" might be exactly what these boards could use.

Each X99 Asus board I see outdoes the last in aesthetics. That is one of the most beautiful boards I've ever seen. And it's a WS board so you know it's going to be rock solid with greater attention to validation and compatibility. If I were building a new system right now that's definitely the board I would go for.

Having seen the X99 Deluxe board, not knowing that I "feel" this board now. Absolutely adored the looks of the Rampage IV Black Edition. Kinda wish Asus would release this board in this state and also in a blacked out state. Darn near anything looks wise can be made to work with black, but not quite so with red. Some restraint on the amount of red (similar to the MSI X99 Gaming board) would have worked better I think but at least they didn't go the WAY overboard on red like ASRock did. Oh well, to each their own. Will still wait to see how it all pans out with the new chipset and memory issues (you know there will be planty) before jumping on this bandwagon

Not a fan of the boards Layout. Once again Asus isn't putting any thought into their Expansion slot layout. What if someone bought a ROG SSD? Or a ROG Soundcard? Yanno, people who'd drop $500 on a mobo probably bought that other stuff too.

I'm not sure what you mean by this. The layout looks fantastic to me and actually takes advantage of the full 7 slot ATX form factor. There are lots of options for expandability here, including the 2 you mentioned, and all but one slot is 16x physical... so what's the problem?

I guessing not but would it be possible to combine the 2 Sata-express lanes to connect one SFF-8639 SDD with access to 4 PCI-E lanes instead of the 2 PCI-E lanes sata-express uses.

Also are the 2 black PCI-E slots v2 or v3?
