Thanks for everyone's suggestions but, it appears that the CPU may indeed be dead. frown.gif
I have submitted a warranty request to AMD but I won't hold my breath expecting a positive response. The red LED keeps lit for the CPU all the time and there is no activity with USB or drives or just about anything.
Like I said, thanks guys for the help. I will let you know how I get on.

Sometimes the board itself will post the red LED light even if the CPU is still good.. I had a board come DOA with that exact issue. I suggest if you can find another chip to borrow to test it that way...

Agreed. I had that situation with the red light and no activity when I killed my board. I am still using that same cpu.

Well, I contacted AMD and they stood behind the "rules" and said that the date of manufacture was older than the 3 years allowed. Unfortunately, I cannot find the receipt for the CPU and, the company I bought it from have gone out of business???? Tough I guess?
Thanks guys for all you posts. I bought an old AM3 CPU an it is working for the time being until I can afford another 8 core.

You could always keep trying to find the receipt and while trying to get another one from them and keep on trying, sometimes companies will bend the rules for us consumers.

ok i just got this board. first off it really rocks that i can see within the first steps of bios setup, tuning, temps, stability etc.. smile.gif

win10x64home
8350
990 fx sabertooth r20
1866 hyper x savage @ 2133 cl9

now some questions:

I'm now trying to find the best LLC setup, which means for me LLC not lower and not much higher vcore under load<-> no load

it seems "high" or "ultra high" seem to be the closest to what i want, whats your experience?

i noticed v-drop with apm enabled. is there a way in the more detailed (digi power area) section of the board to have apm enabled and not have those drops? i d like to have the least watt usage as possible with the daily usage. i'm not sure about disabling apm, i know it s meant to keep the cpu wattage within the specs, not possible with 4.6 ghz or higher @1.4xV?!

for my everyday use I have cnq enabled (c6 disabled). what is the apm = auto setting for?

vdda is auto and gives 2.52 ? shouldnt it be 2.55?

is there a must-have setting amongst the special controls, i mean those settings you won't find on cheaper/non asus boards? i did not touch those so far as i would have to do some research first.

thanks for the input smile.gif

I used high personally and account for the VDroop I have every power saving thing turned on as it bugs my gf how hot it gets in out bedroom, if you use very high with certain things enabled your system will lock up when switching P states, at least this is my finding.

As for the best settings? not sure, I need to fine tune my OC more tbh I haven't really set up the Digi+ power settings in bios fully. I set VDDA to 2.6v, Make sure you enable HPC mode it gets rid of the thermal throttle at 72c socket temp.

I wont get near 72degrees and for hpc i seem to remember that it does disable some features of power saving which i would not want.

with apm disabled i have constant vcore/cpu clock. but as said i'm not sure about the side effects of apm off ^^
