your Cpu also isn't pre-production unless it says Intel Confidential on it, and in CPU-Z it says (ES) next to the CPU.

You mean like this:

yea or like this: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2185003 which is one of mine. I use a lot of bet hardware, you don't have beta hardware. The platform is new, just like all new platforms there are a lot of bugs.

It looks like you didn't have any problem getting a valid CPU-Z, I thought part of the reason that I couldn't get validation was due to having a ES part.

Any theories as to why my ram is showing the speed that it is? Not sure if it matters, but my Intel board is also a ES part.

i just tried out that website. For my cpu it shows ??? for stepping. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2250909

Did you buy that system? and it was ES?

First of all intel X79 boards have issue with CPU-Z showing correct memory speed. you aren't alone.

Second of all, the X is prob because of the ram speed. BUT if you have C1E, EIST, C3/C6 states one of those turned on, it will X it too.

The X means nothing really, if you wanted to submit to HWBot and get a record, the X is acceptable.

Your CPu isn't ES, its not pre-production. IDk why CPU-Z isn't showing your stepping. Your board prob isn't ES either.

No I didn't buy the board or CPU, Intel sent them both to me last October for eval prior to launch. When I first built the system and had some of the weird problems I was having, Intel thought it might be due to the fact that the CPU & board were pre-production samples - turned out it was ram compatibility.

ahh i see, that is pretty cool, what do you do?

Yea from what i hear intel still has some OC problems, but their board manufacturer is very high quality, so their boards are built very well. Just i don't think intel cares too much about OCing on their own boards, as you don't see many OCers buy Intel boards anyways. Their stuff should work fine at stock however. That memory reading thing has been off since day 1, and you are using the latest CPU-z however there is CPU-Z 1.593 which isn't released yet and might have a fix for it as it does fix memory timings reading on some other platform that it currently doesn't' even detect at all on.

not even if it says "PROTO" on the back? tongue.gif well I'm thinking I'll RMA it because of my issues and just hope that was the problem.
post #20 of 22
can you take a picture of it saying proto on the back? lol i have never seen that. usually prototypes are given special revision numbers and special names. They also don'thave the same heatsinks as the final, unless they are the last prototype which is basically the final product hardware wise.

You can RMA, the thing is that some boards do have defects, so maybe your is defective.
