    The thing is, this thread and this issue (as far as I know) relates to strix x99 gaming, and not x99 deluxe.. so why do you insert yourself into it when you obviously have no idea what you're talking...

    Actually, no, I wasn't mixing any utilities like you mentioned. The issue, also according to Asus, was a design flow that may cause a short in the motherboard itself. As somewhat of a proof, the CPU...

    I've had a lot of back and forth myself here in South East Asia with Asus HK office, but overall, once they verified my issue they did a good job. Luckily, my CPU was brand new so it was covered by...

    Asus is a bit strict about RMA, but when it comes to serious issues like the board frying your CPU, i doubt they'll leave you hanging. They will want to check your boards at their lab though. I can...

    Question: Why did you continue with the same motherboard that fried your CPU once already? You know what Einstein said about trying the same thing twice and hoping for different results..?
    Did you...

    I share your pain..
    A few things to consider: X99-a and x99 deluxe/II should be more stable, and using a UPS and latest BIOS should also help in the future (I suspect these boards power regulation...

    Try this guy. But be sure to include all the details and any case number that you have:

    Let me know if it helps.

    Where are you located in the world? I have a contact but its in the Singapore region
  9. It won't cost you a dime to ask them on their...

    It won't cost you a dime to ask them on their facebook page. Preferably in a post so they can't ignore you. Where are you located? Make sure that your post is direct and includes all the details you...

    I've seen stranger things happen. Since they acknowledge their motherboards issues, and seeing that this is far from an isolated incident, I'd try pressuring them. But I'd try both with Intel if it's...

    Sorry to read that mate. I can say that after the last replacement, updated BIOS, and installing a UPS unit - I haven't experienced any more issues. Of course, it shouldn't be that hard.
    Also, even...

    Another Update: updating bios version to 1701 resolved the memtest86 issue, but on first reboot (after setting the bios to AHCI as it should be for my system) - windows 10 froze on boot screen. Then...

    So latest update: pending on testing (latest issue was getting blue screens after the latest windows 10 cumulative update caused any storage device connected to my USB ports to result in BSOD) of my...

    It may share tech with Asus, but the fact is it has a much better track record with x99 boards than Asus. As for the Asus ws line, it exhibits similar issues. Just go to Newegg and read buyers...
  15. Just wanted to mention that your choice of board...

    Just wanted to mention that your choice of board (and actually, every Asus x99 model I looked at) also exhibits stability issues - including the dreaded Qcode 00 phenomenon we're facing here. So.. If...

    A second update: This morning I had a feeling, and I moved the RAM module back from A2 to B1 - and lo and behold: the system booted up and recognized all the RAM properly! However, it still does two...

    By the way, I went on newegg.com to look at a better candidate and it seems that the strix x99 gaming is not the only x99 motherboard with issues - it's actually a prevalent thing with almost if not...

    Another update in this un-ending saga:
    Woke up this morning to the PC not booting up, with the Q-Code "bd" - which pointed to a RAM issue (no change was made to the PC since it's been replaced and...
  19. All support ask about it since it's the immediate...

    All support ask about it since it's the immediate suspect, naturally. Pushing your rig to higher voltage and higher temperature - regardless of the marketing hype - can and probably will shorten the...
  20. Did you get a brand new one in the RMA or a...

    Did you get a brand new one in the RMA or a refurbished one? have you done any overclocking whatsoever? which PSU do you use? have you tried replacing it just for testing?
  21. Just a note on what you said: I did suspect the...

    Just a note on what you said: I did suspect the PSU, but since after my board was replaced on warranty (thanks to a kind lady at Asus Asia - as usually they send a faulty board to taiwan to be...

    After reading the reports of others who experienced the same identical issue as mine, I contacted Asus Singapore again to update them and ask for their input regarding this major issue. I also think...
  23. Meantime conclusion

    Hi!

    So you've asked for an update and here is one:
    a couple of days ago, I've received my replacement CPU and installed it in my replacement motherboard.
    As I updated the motherboard bios using...

    Well, my Power supply is by Thermaltake, and I did some research before buying it. It is a good power supply. from what I read on this forum as well as others, it is more likely that the VRM circuits...

    Leery? What do you mean?
    It's been working for about two months before it stopped.
    I was not overclocking it, aside from letting the bios choose optimal settings automatically.
    Temperatures were...
