Not sure if v4 is so superior vs v3's. For instance a E5 2630 v3 is just 6-7% higher rated in single benchmarks, but costs almost 4x used on eBay and other platforms.

What is the "best bang for the buck" Broadwell-EP that runs on these boards? I.e. E5-26xxV4
If you want bang for the buck, v3 CPUs is where it's at. The prices are just so much better. With all-core turbo OC, they can even be made faster than v4.

So what the best v3 to get for high clock speed with OC? And I assume the Asus bios is moddable as needed? (I think I remember from adding pcie bifurcation on an Asus of mine)

I got my board and i am waiting for the ram to test everything.
I went to the dual 2630L V3 CPU. 55W and 8/16 cores/threads. those CPU cost less than 30usd a piece. impossible to beat :)

Nice I took the 2650L V3... 10core minimum was needed. :)

In EU there's nothing similar. Cheapest I saw is 59EUR w/cooler.

The socket is 2011-3 square ILM. There are a ton of coolers that fit. Depends on your budget, CPUs and how quiet you want them to be.

yes I know but socket are very closed, and I want something quiet ( but CPu will be 75W only) so no need something huge :)
