WolodymyrI tried that, unfortunately did not work. Set to defaults, not optimized and locked at 30 multiplier and no xmp. Even replaced the battery, left it out for 10 mins.
WolodymyrCpu was locked at 30 multiplier 100 blk, everything else was auto. optimized defaults gave errors on second round of memtest, any other settings besides default gave errors within 4-10 minutes. Usually stating in test 6 and up
WolodymyrI can try my 7800x from my sons comp. Did email tech support, don't expect to hear from them until next week. I have not tried the second bios on this board yet. Might be an option
WolodymyrTrying second bios first. cleared cmos and the only changes made were fast boot off and boot options on. running memtest right now.
WolodymyrRan Memtest86 and it still does not display spd info on system page. maybe EVGA smbus does not like to give it out? if you check dimm info, all the spd settings are there.
WolodymyrAll tests completed and passed.
WolodymyrOk results are in. X299 ftwk with either 10980xe of 7800x with both mem kits (3466 and 3200) only default settings pass memtest (memory at 2133 only). Neither proc with xmp settings pass. Both processors and mem kits in Asus x299 prime pass at default, xmp, and minor oc at 4.0 GHz. Asus board shows correct spd data in memtest system view. X299 ftwk shows no spd for slot 1 and garbled data for other slots. Could be that ftwk is pickier about mem but kits are on qvl. Trying to find another quad kit on the qvl has become insane since most kits are EOL and very difficult to find.
Wolodymyrno change with training. tech support opened rma ticket. will find out in a week.
WolodymyrI don't know which is newer. I just want a stable system. An x299 dark would be nice, but I don't really oc so it would be wasted.
Wolodymyrit seems that there are 2 versions of the board. i have the fin stack and fan on the vrm, the other version has a heatpipe from pch to vrm. I don't know which is newer. I just want a stable system. An x299 dark would be nice, but I don't really oc so it would be wasted. Also Eleetx never showed spd data on mem tab, just MHz, ratio, and 1T( forget which timing) and thats it
arestavoWith that said, if that same chip can run a bit faster RAM on other boards, then it should get close on the FTW K.
ZoranCarestavoWith that said, if that same chip can run a bit faster RAM on other boards, then it should get close on the FTW K. I think this is the bottom line here. If one CPU + memory combo runs just fine on one motherboard then that same combo should be able to run just fine on different mb. If it doesn't then difference/failure is due to that second motherboard.
mkimbroI ran across the same issue. I have a EVGA FTW-K and Two X299 Dark's, with a 7940X, 10920x and a 10940x and all three motherboard react... totally different with these CPU's
mkimbroI cannot overclock any of these cpu's past 4600MHZ, even though two of them are from Silicon Lottery...
mkimbroIt's the most flustering thing I've seen.... "BUT I GUESS THIS IS THE NEW TECHNOLOGY WORLD TODAY" We have to take it or leave it :(

I have a EVGA FTW-K and Two X299 Dark's, with a 7940X, 10920x and a 10940x and all three motherboard react... totally different with these CPU's To be honest, I’m not a motherboard guru, far from it, but in my “layman’s common sense” I believe that as long as one is keeping all variables same, and variables are not extremes, then there should be no differences in behavior and final result. mkimbroI cannot overclock any of these cpu's past 4600MHZ, even though two of them are from Silicon Lottery... Personally I have three 10920x on three X299 Dark (more than that went through my hands but they were not for me). I am not an overclocker so I can’t comment how they behave once pushed beyond Intel’s multipliers. What I do know though is that all three of mine seem to be running fine at 4600 MHz just by me using ‘per core multiplier’ setting of x46 and leaving everything else in CPU tab on auto. That doesn’t mean I consider these mbs perfect, I have my share of issues with them, too many for my liking (long story), but they aren’t in CPU area. mkimbroIt's the most flustering thing I've seen.... "BUT I GUESS THIS IS THE NEW TECHNOLOGY WORLD TODAY" We have to take it or leave it :( I don’t believe in “take it or leave it”. I believe I am the customer that is holding the money and if somebody wants my money they have to earn it and keep earning it. Otherwise I take my money somewhere else.
