ASRock X79 Extreme 11 Owners Issues & Hopefully Fixes - Page 95

post #941 of 1199
I did manage to crack the 2400 Barrier with my G-Skill RipjawZ F3-19200CL10Q2-64GBZHD dual quad set. I put the ram in my RIVE MB and took screenshots of the settings. I took those settings and entered them on the ASRock board. It posted and started but now and again would blue screen. I had to overvolt the ram to 1.7V for stability. I took out those ram sticks and put in the TridentX QVL set on ASRock's list. 4x8GB and it works well but 8x8GB it's a no go. I will try the ram settings option mentioned a few posts back and see if I can get all 8 sticks going @ 2400.

I have found that many of the Auto settings really don't work period and it just defaults to the lowest settings throughout the system. I have manually set most of the voltages to what is depicted and the board suddenly runs much better. When you use the Auto CPU Overclock options you will notice that the CPU VCC goes to 1.5V. It sets your VCCSA to 1.2V and PLL goes to 2.000, VTT goes to 1.38 which all adds up to way too much power. The cpu voltage goes to level 1. When the CPU voltage is at level 1 then all the other settings get free reign even higher than what is posted when running. The first thing I did was change the voltage to Level 2 which at the very least locked in the other settings and won't let them run any higher on their own. I slowly backed everything off as much as possible. My computer would start just fine both ways but if I ran Aida 64 the system would crash immeadiately with throttling. I did get 5.0GHz on 1.42V but it was cooking at mid 80's on all cores. Of course my H100i wasn't really the right tool for such an overclock but it was enough to get some benchmark results.

Anyone here have 4 cards in sli or crossfire running with a water cooling solution? I have finally jumped aboard and gone with full water. I have a 480 rad coming with a D5 Vario mounted on an XSPC Photon 170 tube resevoir that glows. My 680 Classy's have no possibility of waterblocks but I am thinking of generic EK VGA Supremacy bridge edition blocks for the GPU's on each card. I can bridge mount them together. Instead of removing the entire cover I will take out the air rad inside to mount the Supremacy's and cut openings in the top of the covers for the bridge connections to extend out above. That way I can still use the built in fan to cool the VRM's. I can set a minimum static fan speed with the fan curve software. I will need 2 more 240 rads for that. The price just to cool the vid cards alone is over $500. My question to you is, is it worth doing?

I read an article on sli'ing and according to them ( a reputable O/C site) the most you can actually sli together depends on how much ram the video cards have. If you have 2GB of GDDR5 the most you can do is 3-way sli. You need more than that for 4-way. The standard TDP of my 680 classy's is 195W. I can flash the bios of all the cards that will allow the TDP to go to 250W. Should I do it if I watercool them? I already hold the record for 3D Mark11 on air cooling. There are only 2 people who managed better scores than I did. One of them is full water for sure because it's mentioned in his profile. Of course they also have multiple entries that show the progression of their score. I disable the auto posting on Furmark and only post my best settings. I save the rest to files on my system where I label all the settings and resultant scores as the save names.

I have been tempted to upgrade my MB with the RIVBE. The main thing stopping me is that I know that in late Q3 and Q4 of 2014 Intel is releasing the X99 chipset. It will use Haswell processors+ specifically (+ = anything that comes along after Haswell) and the socket will change from 2011-0 to 2011-3 or it might be called 2013. Previous CPU's will not be compatible because the pinouts change (same amount of pins but in a different configuration), and the ram will use the new DDR4 series (native 2133 support - 284pin Dimms). That means that when they launch you must buy the board, cpu and ram to support the new chipset. You need a trifecta of parts right from the get go. That makes me hesitate on an upgrade right now. I might be better off just saving my money right now and putting it towards the new stuff coming down the pipe. WELCOME RAMPAGE V EXTREME!!!

PCI-E bandwidth suddenly degrades with zero errors or warning with 3-Way and 4-Way setups. The only indication is the framerate instantly dropping. The game/app that's running still continues to run.

The only fix for the performance reduction is a reboot of the system.

I've been experimenting with PCH 1.1V and 1.5V settings. I tried 1.6V on the 1.5V setting.... no change. 1.2V on the 1.1V setting... no change.

I'm a picky person and take pride in my systems. I enjoy having a PC that is perfect. 100% stable in EVERYTHING. While I don't get any lockups or crashes with this issue (an issue that happens only during system stress) it still annoys me. I know that I'm part of the 1% of the 1% of the 1% with such a setup, but I think something needs to be done to resolve this issue. I've pretty much exhausted all settings I can try.

The only people in the know would be at asrock, as everyone whos got an EX11 has a bald patch on their head.

Your just gonna have to use the same resources we do for troubleshooting.

You can check a power bug with nvidia inspector, 1 of the cards might be forced into power saving mode while in use which lowers the pcie slot to x16 1.1.

You can watch it realtime with nvidia inspectors multi display power saver app and GPU-Z

I don't know if you truly understand what the problem is. PCI-E bandwidth is suddenly tanking. It's not the cards. Every setting I've tried with the cards ultimately exhibits the same problem. If you follow the posts from the post I linked to, you'll see that there is someone with an Asus P9X79 WS with the same exact problem. Even when the problem occurs the cards can still boost up. GPU-Z PCI-E mode test app still shows PCI-E 3.0 on all four cards. Most people with the same configuration will probably not even know the problem has happened. The only way to tell is running a benchmark after it happens or run the PCI-E bandwidth test.

I'm currently testing PCI-E 2.0 upstream with PCI-E 3.0 downstream set in the BIOS to see if that changes anything. I can already see bandwidth reduction in the bandwidth test app, but that's to be expected.

With PCi-E 3.0 on everything in the BIOS is could usually trigger the problem within a half and hour to an hour. Right now it has been going for 2 and 1/2 hours and sucking electricity like crazy. Haven't triggered the problem yet. I'll do more testing to see if this holds.

What apps are you running to look for the drop and i'll do exactly the same thing.

3DMark Firestrike Extreme looping or Unigine Heaven looping. Vsync off, everything maxed.
