    :( where is the X99 support where is the loyalty to all them people who purchased your X99 motherboards?




    I have a suggestion for you. I think you should post a new thread in the X99 section, so Tech Support, and forum members can see what your referring to. What problems you are having, and how to fix them. More info is needed to help you.

    NOTE: I will be offline from 11/21/16 to 12/15/16. If you have a problem please PM another Mod, as I won't be available to answer you back. Thanks.

    I am terribly sorry I made a positive comment on behalf of myself and many others did not mean to have disturbed your forum and this is the first time I have been addressed in a nature of this sort. My apology to the forum I had thought it was a EVGA open forum. Peace live long and prosper

    It is an open forum. All I suggested is you post the problem in the X99 section. Not sure what I said that got under your skin. Anyway, take care.

    I thought I fixed that already, guess I didn't.  It is fixed now, thanks for pointing it out.

    Hello!
     
    Does this new bios bring some major changes or fixes over 1.05 version, except those listed in 1st post?
    I have 1.05 now and it seems to work fine for my setup. However if the newer one contains latest bug fixes for Skylake processors I would give it a try.
    P.S.
    Where did I miss 1.06 version?

    i7 6700K @4,0GHz; EVGA Z170 FTW :::: G.SKILL 16GB 3200  ::::  EVGA GeForce GTX 980 CLASSFIED ACX 2.0 ::::  AIM SC808  ::::  Corsair HX1000W, 
    Samsung 850 PRO 256GB + 2x Samsung 840 EVO 500GB  ::::  Plextor PX-LB950SA :::: DELL U2713HM  ::::  Win 10 x64 Pro

    Question- I want to flash the new Bios, but I can't seem to get to set-up, pressing DEL does no good, goes right into Windows in a matter of seconds, my drive is a Samsung 950 Pro,( and yes it is fast).
    My concern is that if I flash the new Bios from Windows the instructions indicate going first to settings in Bios and setting defaults.
    What if I can't get there? Is flashing from Windows workable leaving my current Bios settings as is, or will this cause problems?
     
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Hey bud. Just update it inside windows. Go to the download, and run the .exe file. It will do all the work for your :-)

    I would suggest resetting the bios prior to the update.

    Thanks- update in windows works and it is fast. One important reminder, if using M.2, remember that when resetting BIOS it is very sensitive to having exact settings, otherwise it can get really 'lost". Happened that I missed one setting and after saving and exit, went to black screen with blinking cursor. Took 5 tries to get reset and back into set-up screen.
    Now all good.

     What board? If you are on the classy then I would use the voltage readpoints dongle and a multimeter. 
     
    How is D-Die compatibility now? In terms of running really tight since when I last tested it was definitely finnicky running very high or very tight. I will be testing the non-K OC with some B-Die and hopefully get some good results with dice and ln2 :)

    I'm on an Stinger! 
    I need a better motherboard to push it even more!
     
    For now, It's my best résult with this setup:
     
    CPU: i5 6600k 3500Mhz @ 5100Mhz(51x100) 1,5v(drop 1,496v)
    MEM: G.Skill f4-DDR4 2400 cl15 1,2v @ 2800Mhz cl14 1,3v
    MB: EVGA Z170 stinger

    and max screen:

     
    Pretty good I think! :P

    Holy crap!!!  What do you use for cpu cooling?  I'm guessing a custom watercooling loop?  And what are your temps like during Prime95?
     
    I have found that the EVGA Eleet X utility gives a pretty accurate reading of the CPU Vcore on the Monitoring tab.  I'm currently running the same processor as you, with a Corsair H110i GT on it, and getting 4.8GHz @ 1.35v.  Had to bump the voltage up over 1.4v to stabilize @ 4.9GHz, and that pushed my temperatures too high.

    I see Vcore still isn't reading right with CPU-Z.

    I tried E-leet and it gave me readings 0,13v below bios Vcore (after reboot)....
     
    E-Leet, Aida64, hw monitor, cpu-z, core temp, XTU, OCCT, etc.
     
    All gave me bad reading!
