Jet_Bl4ck87I do not have a m2 ssd so I can skip this step. However, in terms of the i7 5820k OC, I cannot get to 4.0. No matter what I do, windows does not load beyond 3.8. Any recommendation?
gtxjackbauerThat doesn't look good. How does the socket and its pins look? What cooler did you use for the CPU? I think you should create your own thread before this OCing guilde gets thrown in the deep end. If a moderator can help us here and move this to a complete new thread, would be great.
baconinabunV84x4Edit I've sent you a PM, you want to read my PM and change this thread EDIT: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!
GTXJackBauerBacon, off your meds again? Don't trash this post as it was intended to help others. Nothing wrong here, carry on.
baconinabunwhat i believe to be wrong in this is STEP #3: Get your RAM stable first,timing should be entered manually as memory volts, don't use XMP.to get your memory stable and showing fully you need to increase the system agent voltage start at 0.350 and work up till stable, i have 64gb of corsair 3000mhz my system agent is set to 0.450 IN MY GUIDE MY RAM IS STABLE FIRST STEP #4:"CPU VIN" should be set to 1.95v give the CPU enough oomf to get it going If you using offset/adaptive you only want to set that @0.050 then CPU voltage Target to 1.25 never go above 1.40v it's not good for the chip, if you do intend to go above that value intel offer a chip replacement service, attacking a chip with 2.270V is so wrong the silicon lottery is a urban myth, once your X99 starts responding to the sweet voltages the sweet frequencys start flooding in and voltages can either be reduced or increased, softly softly catchy monkey my 5960x will happily bench @4.8 when i got the thing to start with it i couldn't get it to go above 4.2 Never Push the x99 to hard to start with or you'll get a black bummed CPU i have no interest in dissecting or rubbishing the @ops post, as i say great part about enabling the M.2, but off your trolly regarding voltages your trying to feed it!
bcavnaughThis Thread Would be a Great Sticky for the X99 Area if it could be cleaned up.
rjohnson11I should also note that if anyone believes they have a better "guide" to setting up the X99 Micro 2 make your own guide with pictures. The moderators will look over all similar posts and can select the best written one for a sticky.
