SolidAir79I just purchased the Dark x299 if im using two sticks of ram with the new i9 10980xe will it be the Skylake x Dimm slots ?
SolidAir79The dark mobo pcb has dimm 1 and 2 marked Skylake x only and dimm3 and 4 both cpu's. I have purchased a set of 4 x 4133mhz ram sticks as I know that quad is faster what interested me was what would be the reason for only running Dual?Cool Gtx i like to overclock, tinker and leave my PC crunching numbers when im not busy but the board does look cool 🙂
SolidAir79Thanks for the info read through the above then seen your post Lee M .I'm used to the i7 dual channel where less populated dimm slots can help squeeze that extra 100mhz lol
HimsahimsaI don't see any information regarding the allocation of the additional 4 PCIe lanes on X229 Dark from the new i9-10 series.What is the allocation of the additional 4 PCIe lanes on X229 Dark from the new i9-10 series.Will X299 Dark be able to use the additional 4 PCIe lanes on X229 Dark from the new i9-10 series at all or is there a hardware limitation?
Avenger411Hey people! I've always been an Asus rampage guy since 5-10years. This time around i went with the x299 dark because you know the build quality is outstanding (bulldozoid). One question here. I'm about to get this board and 10900x installed and from what i've read, i won't be able to get into windows with this cpu because of the native bios which would be 1.00? (the one evga ships their mobos with). I already got the 1.19 bios update needed. From past experience, i would only put the ".cap" file (asus mobos) on the fat32 usb key and that would be it. Now for evga can i just put the "1E299119.bin" file ? Or i have to also put the two folders called "fptdos", "fptwin" and the "update.bat" file ?. Note that i'll be updating straight from bios since i won't be able to get to windows. Thanks for the input!
