Asus ROG x99 Strix

Level 7
I have this motherboard for some years, happy with it so far but as time goes by i have upgraded to new system. My plan is to use this motherboard as a storage unit now and since i have Core i7-6900K in it i think thats a ovekill for that purpose 😄

So the cheapest 2011v3 processor i could find, used offcourse, is E5-1603 v3 with 4 cores ( 20 euros in Europe ) but that processor is not listed as suitable for this motherboard. On other hand E5-1603 v4 is, so my question is has anyone tryed E5-1603 v3 in this motherboard, can confirm that is working with it, or do you have any knowledge that even it might work?

Thanks for any info.

...short answer, IT WORKS! 🙂

...long answer, decided to buy E5 1603 V3 after Google-ing and found couple of threads on Internet and since this CPU is very cheap, for example

but i have found other sites stating that it works or should work.


And my test went without any issues, or should i say the only issue I had is that board didnt POST with Samsung memory M471A1G43DB0-CPB but its working just fine with Apacer AU04GGB13CDTBGH ( tried with these two because i had them lying around )

hope this will help someone :cool:

ps dont judge my setup i just wanted to see if the processor will work on this motherboard 🙂
