bcavnaughFrom http://forums.evga.com/FindPost/2221972Asus X99 Deluxe user here with a Xonar Essence STX. Unfortunatly, Asus boards have the exact same problem, both the Deluxe and Rampage from what I've heard so far.
chips chandler For Boxlid, Viking 365, & bcavanaugh:Bet you guys wondered what happened to me. Now I'm back for an update. Received my board after RMA turnaround SC to CA to SC. (defective socket). Bench checked it, flashed BIOS 1.14. Everything was perfect. Tore down the bench test. Installed it in my Silverstone Temjin TJ10 and voila, everything was just even more perfect. Did a P2p from Paragon on my SSD, got all the drivers installed and boys she's hummin' like a tin penny finishing nail hit with a greasy ball-peen hammer. BIOS 1.14 works for me very nicely. Gave me 2 XMP profiles A.) 2667MHz B.) 2800. Both rock solid. BTW I have 4X4GB Corsair Dominator Platinum CAS Latency 15 sticks.Natively sets up my i7 5930k to 3.8Ghz @ 2133 and bumps that a little in either A or B above. Ran Memtest86 on the memory for a couple of hours several passes. No issues. Probably will buy another kit of these. Currently keeping them set to A.) above. Stressed the CPU with the CPU burner in OC Scanner. It never got over 70C. Have the Corsair H80i with only a "pull out the back" NoiseBlocker fan. Front fan won't fit. Will be installing two NoiseBlockers in the top cage. Have one of the Corsairs in the front intake. However, @ 2700 rpm, it is LOUD. I have to dial that one back to 2 grand or less. Wife complains. Mobo ambient is at 40-50C. Idles at 40C but can get to 50C, especially when burning up the two GTX 970's I have in SLI. Tried UEFI exclusively and Windows would not boot. With UEFI/Legacy it's all good! Don't plan to do a RAID Array. However, I am strongly considering an M.2 SSD for a booter. In short, 1.14's a winner so far.
chips chandlerHaven't really oc'ed it yet. Just a hard burn at 3.82Ghz. In the XMP 2 Profile that's what it was set at. Memory at 2800Mhz. Could you recommend settings for a 4+ OC and I'll give them a try? Remember my CPU is 5930k (the little brother of yours).
chips chandlerFor bcavanaugh:OK Did some tinkering around. The suggestion above gifted me with a BSOD. That was from screwing around with CPU Offset voltage. If, however, I left that alone and set the XMP to 2800 and then went back and set the clock to 35. Voila she banged out at 4.5GHZ and at 2800MHZ on the memory and it was all good. In fact its running as I type at these speeds. Has been for the last hour or so. Rock Steady. Validated at CPU-Z. Temps never got over 38C. Ambient MOBO 42C. The fan profile is at Performance. Loud but not obnoxiously so.BTW: None of this delivers a faster boot speed. So what is the point?
chips chandlerdavestune,Thanks for your interest. And I will try this just as soon as my new SSD comes in from Samsung. Don't know if you heard, but Saturday Samsung came out with a firmware update. I have an 850Pro 512GB that was running really well. This firm ware update bricked my computer so bad that it won't even boot up if the drive is still connected. I managed to mount my whole system from a Paragon backup and now I'm limping along at native speeds on an old platter Seagate drive.When I get the new SSD all set up and running again, I'll be back to my old tricks. Until then, I'm just bootleing along. I really don't want to rock the boat. I'll let you all know soonest.
chips chandlerWell, I'm back at full speed. Got my new SSD this morning. Cloned it from Seagate I was using and tuned everything up. Now I'm back to the Profile in the above from a week ago. Tomorrow I'll try to squeak it up some more. CPU temps are staying between 35-40C. Motherboard at the socket a little over 40C. But it has yet to fall out of Windows. After all of this, I'm sort of burnt out on my computer. I need to give it rest for a while. But all in all...
chips chandlerI do Not think so. This was with the Samsung Firmware update. They acknowledged that many people had this problem. It manifested itself in many different ways with many other people and many other platforms. Check with Samsung Tech about this if you have concerns with BIOS 1.14 EVGA. Their phone number is: 800 726-7864. They are located in Carlstadt NJ . I think they are Samsung contractors Total Tech Solutions, Inc. 49 Commerce Rd. Carlstadt, NJ 07072-2504
