    Fire Strike Extreme 25192 (Could be better I think if Nvidia fixes the SLI issue at lower resolutions.)

    The fact the the driver works with other Ryzen CPUs only compounds that this is an NV driver issue. The portion of BIOS that ASUS controls doesn't tune performance for specific GPUs. It usually just adds support for the NV SLI key. Capiche? The fact the card works fine until the driver is installed points at it being an antagonist. Come to think of it, reminds me of this issue:

    http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answe...n-x79-platform

    Might just be that Gen 3.0 cannot be guaranteed with these cards, just as it wasn't on the Intel X79 platform. Setting the cards to gen 2.0 would help confirm that. Cards are long in the tooth now, too. Hardly a high concern at this point. Anyone holding onto them needs to assess where it makes sense to spend money.

    Updated to 9980 without issues
    With same settings memory read went up from about 90500MB/s to around 91000-91500MB/s.

    Managed to do some runs at 4150, thou need better cooling and more voltage to get properly stable.
    Fire Strike Physics Score 30691 and some other scores went up too^^
    https://www.3dmark.com/fs/13429431

    Tested AMD Ryzen Balanced power options and it is almost like high performance,
    but CPU speed just drops to 90% instead. So it increases with overclock.


    On Doom both OpenGL and Vulcan is super smooth, seems id Tech engine really likes TR.
    Some of those cores most likely went active cause of the screenshot but still. ^^
    It actually looked smoother than my 6950X, only had one hick up when you wake up at start.

    Updated to 9906 without issues yesterday.
    Very similar memory performance with same settings, maybe slight better latency.
    First time I tested it was 13ns difference between my 6950X and 1950X,
    now it is 10.5ns ^^

    Latest Nvidia driver had some increased performance in Fire Strike and Ice Storm,
    it does not solve issue at lower resolution but it is slightly better.

    Filled out another feedback form to Nvidia, feel free to fill out one too if you have
    similar issues or other GPU related issues.

    My TR@4150 Fire Strike Physics Score 31185 ^^

    Hopefully EK-MLC release later this year, not seen date yet.


    In case someone bump into similar issue with Corsair Link and the H115i or similar.
    When I updated to latest version I bumped into Code 52 cause I have Windows UEFI mode on.
    -Uninstalled latest.
    -Installed a earlier version got same issue again.
    -Installed update to latest still same.
    -Updated manual USBXPDriver in Device Manager to the one found in this post over at Corsair
    by a user named red-ray and it started like normal right away after.
    File name in post --> hydros7289-3.6.zip
    Device name for me changed to --> Corsair Hydro Series 7289 USB Device
    http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=856104

    You can check version with command prompt (admin):
    dism /online /get-driver /format:table

    I can confirm that the Titan (kepler) cards do not work I couldn't even boot up with one installed and i have 4 of them
    Titen X ,980ti and 1080ti work fine hope this helps people

    HardOCP's cards did POST according to the article. With that being the case, I'm wondering if this is a Gen 3.0 issue. These cards had such issues on X79, too. As you have some working GPUs, you can always force Gen 2.0 in the UEFI and see if the Kepler cards then work. If it's not that, given some cards do POST and others only have issue at the driver layer, could also be a VBIOS issue.

    I put together my Zenith + 1950x last night :-)

    I unfortunately have struggled with two frustrating issues:

    1) I have a Inateck USB PCIe Expansion Card (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FPIMICA..._t2_B00FPIMJEW) that I need working despite there being an abundance of USB ports on the back of the board (basically, for PCIe Passthrough to a KVM for native dedicated ports for those technically inclined that are curious). The Zenith Extreme refuses to boot with this card installed, even though it works fine with two other boards I have on hand. The second its put in the Zenith the board hangs on code B4 - Load VGA BIOS.

    Tried the following:
    a) Update to latest BIOS 0503 (didn't help. latest beta BIOS link is broken in the sticky)
    b) Tried moving PCIe slots. Happens in any slot.
    c) Tried removing all other PCIe cards other than the GPU and this one. Doesn't help.
    d) Tried disabling non-essential onboard devices in case of conflict. Doesn't help
    e) Tried toggling preferring UEFI/Drivers/CSM options - doesn't help
    f) Tried toggling legacy USB support, doesn't help

    Any advice on this is appreciated, as this was really frustrating.

    2) The Zenith Extreme seems to be randomly losing my boot drive order. Several times upon rebooting, I end up in the bios from no bootable drives on the list and I have to set the right drive manually again. This may be related to that I'm using an 8-port PCIe SATA Card in conjunction with the onboard ports (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

    The only things I've noticed is that when this happens and I change the order back to how it should be, the BIOS doesn't recognize me as having made any changes when I hit save and exit. Despite this, it does save.... for awhile. I haven't noticed any commonalities in what causes it to lose it - sometimes it just a normal reboot.
