dmann304Well, scoring about a 62 for Aida64 in a latency test. cache is 32 on mesh, 4000 mhz at 16 16 16 36, stable at 4800.
dmann304The Dark X299, The Corsair Dominator Pla, RGB Kapelic 3600 top of the line Samsung b-di at 4000 16 16 16 369 series Skylake X cpu with AIO 150i RGB from Corsair.
dmann304I always hear the Dark was souly used for benching, and testing, and the ftw was used for actualuse, however i got the Dark cuz i knew it would have a beefy power stage. and can run chips athigher clocks with memory like Kinpin who was behind the design of this board.
dmann304Also, one thing i don't understand is: why can the regular I9's 9900k or 10900k sit at 5ghz, with noeffort, but on the X299, the chips need a lot of juice or cooling to get 5ghz, when its the same damnsilicon, being Skylake.
ssj92Anyone here have recommendations on where to start with my 10980XE and X299 Micro motherboard? Last CPU I OC'd was my 9900K in my laptop which was easy, just increase multipliers and adaptive voltage offset LOL.
