    As per first reply, I bet all stock here in Aus has old bios, I don't think these move quickly at $539+ retail price.

    I know my rig will be fine when I get it sorted, I just cant believe I have a new cpu here that I can not use and not one store in Aus has any "Ivy-E ready" motherboards to buy .... why wouldn't the manufacturers have planned ahead for a new cpu release?

    Aussie man, it's more the responsability of the shops too flash the bios on the old stock, then these are all Ivy-E ready... this indeed should not be the end users problem...

    We've seen it too with the FM2 boards and the AMD Richland. Heck even some shops are selling combos and are not flashing a Richland compatible bios... yes they will do it at a fee or aren't even aware the boards will not post with the new CPU and the older biosses. I see this as pure daylight robbery...

    Hope you can find a SB-E soon to enjoy Ivy-e man

    Wait, didn't you get your board from an end-user? In such case, that would have been up to the end-user. The UEFI update in question was 21** series (a long time ago). Most users tend to upgrade builds after a while so your situation of buying a second hand board from someone is very much in the minority. Its the same old internet debacle. Someone sees 4-5 posts on forums and assumes it's an epidemic issue. The only cases I have come across are like yours - users sitting on old builds, and there are not more than a handful I have encountered.

    How do you know the shop stock UEFI situation in Aus? If the run-rates are not high, then likely they don't stock many boards either. Business kinda works that way. In the rare event it does happen, the user is covered by warranty, so can either RMA the board or get a BIOS chip. Now seeing as your issue is not even related to a board you purchased from a retail outlet I think this is a much ado "i bet" situation more than anything else.

    You can contact ASUS AU for clarification on that - it's better than posting "I bet" supposition here.

    Aussie can you not buy a SB-E cpu, flash to the correct bios and then return the cpu and enjoy your Ivy E goodness?

    They do not take opened returns here, not for cpus.

    One option might be to find someone who can flash chips for you. Or someone that has an SNB-E CPU they can lend you

    I had the same problem a few days ago (as you already read).
    Frustrating ... yes.

    At the end , i had to pay a local tech shop (that had an SB-E) to do both bios flash.

    Yup, I can confirm that. My RIVE bought via Newegg came with a 4xxx series BIOS, just did a USB Flash Back and booted her straight up with a 4930K. Now... instead of mucking with client builds, time to get a RIVBE for myself with some Asus VGA cards =)

    So are these retail versions of the Rampage Black Editions or early pre-release versions. It's just that I'm interested in getting one.

    I have some PSC Pi's to try on mine too.

    What rams would you guys buy for 3D benching on these? Or can these pretty much handle any ram I can get my hands on?

    Dumo .... got some leftovers to hand my way ??

    That is perfect, thank you Dumo. I like testing at 4500 as a solid but safe gaming stable clock, and like to maximise physics at that clock, so those results are just what I needed. I was hoping to get around the 17k mark at 4500 so that is spot on.

    Is the Black Edition really worth much over the regular old R4E? Are there refinements in the BE that help?

    Hynix-CFR-2833-C10-13-12-21-108-1T
    From that thread, are these just the common TridentX 2666c11? We have no fancy rams available at all here ....
