ASRock X79 Extreme 11 Owners Issues & Hopefully Fixes - Page 53

post #521 of 1199
Received the replacement board.
Had to update the bios (2.20 to 2.80) with basic gfx card installed, otherwise it would hang at post (a2) if I had 3 680s installed, that scenario took about 3 hours to figure out......

Found a flaw, the gfx cards were sitting on the Xfan and it wasn't spinning until I jimmied the gfx cards up slightly, then the fan started spinning. This was when the tower case was lying flat on the table. Still had to reposition the gfx cards of the fan when upright but all is good after that. Maybe that's why the first board died from overheating.

Hmm my X-fan is not spinning either. Is the X-fan suppose to only turn on when the temps get high enough? My SB temps are at 41c, which is about 10c higher than the M/B.

The X-fan need to spinning all the time no matter what temp I think or you need to be really, really low on temp before it wouldn't spin.

My X-fan run at 46% fanspeed that's about 3500RPM. I use Speedfan Program to make the fan run on low speed, so it doesn't make too much noise. The temp when gaming is under 60c on game like Diablo 3 and can go a little over 60c on heavy game like Battlefield 3. But then I'll just let the fan run at 60-70% if the X-fan gets too hot smile.gif

If you blow a fan at or near the vrm heat sink, the Xfan will run quieter, as the small VRAM heat sink is what carries the heat away from the larger x79/LSI/plx heat sink.

The default settings on the AE11 has the X-fan at manual and to enable with southbridge temp of 50c or higher. I put the threshold setting to 43c and now the X-fan turns on with a lower SB temp. But the X-fan is off until it reaches its set threshold temp.

BTW anyone with Titans, or I suppose 780s the newest v2.80 bios is required to run those cards. I was having intermittent instability (with stock clocks) with my Titans with previous v2.70. All alleviated with the bios update.

Was having the "no controller found" message in Win 8 Pro x64 (reboot didn't help). Uninstalled the MGM V12 (5.3), restarted machine. Installed V13.01.04.00 (5.6).

Almost forgot - IMPORTANT - make sure you go "RUN AS Admin" on the Setup

Issue resolved. Looks like V13 is a MUST UPDATE if you use the MGM in Win 8.

Download link (just click Supports & Downloads): http://www.lsi.com/products/storagecomponents/Pages/LSISAS9217-8i.aspx

Also found the new Windows driver V2.00.63 and P16 Firmware + BIOS when I was on the site. Will also give the new driver & firmware a try here.

UPDATE: updated to V2.00.63 windows driver, P16 BIOS & Firmware, all seems working fine. Happy computing!

Peace,
jack

I assume the update of the bios and firmware is the same as you previously posted ?

Btw - if somebody is looking for the changelog it's in this package:

Now this is really a stupid question but can you post a picture and show me where the VRM heat sink is? Thank you.
