Christmas Eve rib roast question #2. Hot sear? Steady 350 degrees? Somewhere in between?

I've read numerous recipes for standing rib roast, AKA prime rib. The most extreme recipe calls for 5 minutes per pound at 500 F, then turn off the oven and let it sit for 2 hours. Others recommend a steady 350 the whole time. In between are countless combinations of searing and roasting temperatures. What's really the best way? Anyone tried both ways?
