    Yeah, I pretty much ruled that out in the beginning---i stripped down the connections (only the 3 power connectors and cpu fan header connected and of course the vid card) and took the board out of...

    Tried that, didn't work---i also went out and bought a cheap 3200G to test and it wouldn't power up with that either. Think the mobo is a dud, probably first time thats happened to me since like the...
  3. Crosshair VIII Hero won't even power on with new 3900x, cpu or mobo?

    I'm trying to figure out whether the motherboard or the cpu is the culprit here---using a 3900x, properly seated, and we get the multicolored LEDs and "Start" button illuminates, but neither the...

    I'm sticking with the older microcode simply because the new one negatively affects Turbo boost, but for the short time I ran the Spectre fix microcode, I didnt have any stability issues.

    Wow, I didnt get any errors, it was just that the single thread turbo wasnt working as well as previously. Other than the overclock to 4.4 (which I just did to test single thread performance with the...

    I'm pretty sure its the microcode, I have the exact same problem with the modded 1004 drivers on this page---turbo core no longer seems to be working as well as it used to, and its not the Spectre...

    X299-E gaming 1102 turbo core?

    One thing I've noticed after upgrading to the latest 1102 bios for this board is that my 7980XE no longer seems to reach the single thread performance as the previous BIOS, which I would just accept...

    Well, one thing I've noticed on the 1102 bios is that my single core score dropped quite a bit, leading me to believe that turbo core isnt working properly, because when I overclock all cores to...

    Happy to help---your temps pretty much mirror my own with those settings.

    If you want to overclock to 5ghz all cores, I'm pretty much certain you'll have to go to the H110 dual 140mm cooler like I...

    Since IMWeasel has you disabling turbo core, you *should* be able to lower some settings on the DIGI+ page which will put less stress on the VRMs.

    For 23.5 multiplier and no turbo,

    Yeah, your results pretty mucn mirror what I got when I tried to go with the 14 model of that Noctua on my 9590---the temps were too high for comfort for me.

    Although, you are running 5ghz, and I...

    I dont think its the mobo, its more like the on-die memory controller having issues with all 4 banks populated with densely packed ram. In another words, you'd probably have similar problems with...

    Yeah, but a difference of 60W (150W vs ~90) under AVX2/FMA3 load (for a 90-100W TDP CPU) seems like a rather odd difference, no?

    I'm starting to wonder if maybe the AVX/FMA instructions arent...

    Try doing a search for "2133" or "2400" on this forum...my bet is that somebody somewhere will list the settings they used. I'm sure I've seen a couple of posts about it. Sorry I couldnt be any help.

    Got a really odd situation here....my Z-97E, even under full load with the AVX heavy Prime95, will never get into the 90s with a CM Hyper-T4 cooler, and wattage indicated in CoreTemp never goes into...

    If all else fails, it wouldnt hurt to try and see if both plugs to the cpu would solve your problem. It did for me (was not stable even at stock speeds without both the 8 + 4 pins connected).

    I'd agree with that---especially if you leave turbo off. I've gotten the 9590 rock stable with LLC Regular, which is a HUGE voltage droop under full core load. Thats at 4.7.

    Dont feel bad---even at stock speeds this cpu is a handful to get stable unless you have a beefy, quality PSU and great airflow all around the board from the very start.

    He's using Win 7, so it was probably for the native SB/SATA/etc chipset drivers. Windows 10 doesnt need those IIRC.
