    Well, after serving me well since a release day purchase she died :(

    Where do you find a replacement?

    On Ebay there are China ones but, I am not confident those are legitimate ASUS boards unless someone here has personal experience with them.

    One from a private seller is up for $699 plus shipping. I just do not see that being logical move for myself.

    Have not seen any in the marketplace threads here and other sites.

    x79 platform (oc'ed of course), does everything I need currently. Plus, I really liked that board.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you,
    Monnie

    Unfortunately those were not big sellers, I'd probably either go for an original RIVE or Formula. I liked my old Asrock and my MSI is good but they are both even rarer and expensive too.

    I found a replacement rive on eBay for $400. The rive and the black are Very close and should be a bootable replacement

    Mega6, asking to break up the combo was the first thing I did when finding only combos


    Guy/Gal #1 No, I do not want to break up the combo
    Guy/Gal #2 Sent message if they are willing to just sell the board (quick response) Send me an offer. I offered $300 just for the board. No reply in 24hrs.

    As far as selling the remaining components, even though I have been here since 2005, my post count is too low to use the "For sale / trade". More a reader than poster.

    I detest selling on ebay.

    Happy Thanksgiving,
    Monnie

    eBay works but I can understand you don’t want to deal with it. Good luck in finding a replacement.

    Last time I checked they weren’t much cheaper because there wasn’t more than a couple of Matx boards for x79 and that one was the best.

    You also don’t see the Big Bang x2s anymore.
