    Thanks Gupsterg and Arne! I appreciate this difficult to find information. What a great forum.

    I looked up "Super I/O chip" on Wikipedia and learned some new things. It apparently interfaces with...

    Thanks Arne,

    Do you happen to know which sensor ASUS BIOS uses, Tctl or Tdie, and if the BIOS also might apply the offset?

    On my R5E, I noticed that OC Panel worked fine to report CPU temps...
  3. Does OC Panel report Ryzen 1700X/1800X temps accurately, or with a +20 C offset?

    I read that Ryzen 7 1700X and 1800X CPUs appear to add about a +20 C offset to the actual temps at the Tctl sensor (die-to-heat spreader junction). AMD purposely does this so the fan control curves...

    Hi Xeromist,

    You can also splice a small junction box into the extension and disconnect the black hot wire. Worth the trouble if you do a lot of building.

    Cheers Arne! Yes, slumming it is my way of life. And I'm with you on air-cooling for the paranoid :eek:

    Years ago I purchased from Cyberguys.com a green power supply connector that passes only ...

    I get audiophile quality with an ASUS Essence STX II PCIe sound card, and it does sample at 192 kHz. The cost of the STX II is comparable to the cost of a good DAC ($200 - $300). That being said, a...

    Arne, Thank you for taking the time! Your guide...

    Arne,
    Thank you for taking the time! Your guide is enlightening and your sense of humor reminds me to have fun when building computers, especially when the chips are down :rolleyes:

    Interesting that one corrupted BIOS chip can copy bad code to a good chip and thereby implicate both of them. Kudos to you for figuring it out! With all the different clues you were following up,...
  9. Sorry, it seems the POST codes were not helpful...

    Sorry, it seems the POST codes were not helpful and were even a distraction. If both BIOS chips are repeatedly being corrupted then it does sound to me like a defective motherboard. Better luck to...

    I too enjoy the community here and I've learned much. It is a really nice resource. One further thought occurred to me and that is to reset the power connectors to the video card, because you had an...
  11. Some clues and shots in the dark

    I would check the power supply as suggested. But if that is not the cause, here are definitions of your codes that may offer some clues to the cause of the trouble:

    Code 78 is for ACPI module...

    Absolutely. That flashing header compensates a lot for the inconvenience of having a surface mounted chip go bad. I plan to assemble this flashing cable and use it just to read a copy of the BIOS...
  13. I haven't thought about the SOIC chip connecting...

    I haven't thought about the SOIC chip connecting only to surface PCB traces but you must be right about that. A surface trace pattern from chip to header (1 2 across, then down, then 3 4 across, then...

    Hi Korth,
    See the original post, there is a photo of the mobo with the 9-pin header. Right next to the 9 pin header is the SOIC8 BIOS chip soldered to the board.

  15. Dual M.2 and PCIE sockets: Useful Answers from ASUS Tech Support

    The USB card is probably X1 and can go into any of the black PCIE_X1 slots under the control of the X370 chipset. Unless you are talking about USB 3.1 maybe with USB C form factor? That would be an...
  18. Don't know your full configuration, but that...

    Don't know your full configuration, but that lower M.2 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIE_X8_2 slot, in fact I suspect that both M.2 slots might share that bandwidth. That PCIEX8_2 slot in turn...

    My Crosshair VI Extreme has arrived and I noticed that instead of the Winbond W25Q128FVIG SPI BIOS chip, it uses a 25LB128CSIG (SOIC8 package). I cannot find the datasheet for this part, but a...

    Are you using the latest BIOS version? If not, it might help to reflash to newer version. I never have had fans go to 100% unless they are set in BIOS to DC Mode instead PWM Mode.
  21. I experience the same symptoms on an R5E. Using...

    I experience the same symptoms on an R5E. Using FanXpert in AI Suite III (v1.01.01), my three top fans are controlled by VRM temps and they will occasionally blast full rpm for about 2 secs then ramp...
  22. C6E which M.2 slot is best for booting from NVMe drive

    Greetings. The Crosshair VI Extreme contains two M.2 slots and if you are installing only one M.2 as an NVMe boot drive, it leads to the question of which slot is most efficient for booting the OS? ...

    Was that 30% performance hit for cpus below Broadwell or below Haswell? I thought Haswell was affected badly.
