Driver problem. The click is the audio driver activating the relay in the audio circuit. My board says "AA" as I type this to you.

If you changed a setting in BIOS, and ASUS AI Suite is installed, it is possible the AI suite is causing the issue. Boot into safe mode and see if that works...if it does...check video driver and software-based tools, as that's what typically loads up after the audio driver.

Enable "maximum Performance" in OS power options.

Why would one not use those power saving features these days?

Simply because one desires performance instead.

To have power-saving features work properly, offset voltages and "per core" CPU options need to be enabled. You cannot push these CPUs to the limit under those conditions, so as a user you've got to decide which works best for you.

For me, the difference in idle power consumption is only 10-15 W.

Well the way i do my set up here cadaveca is simple, i have 2 different overclocks saved to the Bios Profiles!!

1, Is my everyday Web Browsing set up, Low Voltage easy OC!

2, Is my Benching OC as and when i feel like kicking some Vcore out of this CPU!!

So with one click of a mouse or Key pad i can easily choose which one, and i can tell you it makes life much easier!

The Moral of this story is use your Bios Profiles that what ASUS put them there for!!

Respectfully,

AJ.

You mean custom ones you make right? As I wouldn't trust the Asus bios profiles ever since it sets HIGH voltage when you could be using much less, the profiles don't seem to be catered to CPU life, that's for sure.


@Cad gonna pull the trigger, just wanted to ask one more thing, do you think if I got the 2400 RipJaws and set them to 2133 I'd be able to match the timings to the 2133 set w/o issues? Or would it be safer to just go w/ 2133 overall. I just want to ensure that I"m not gonna miss out on anything other than benchmarks ( which I've no care for )

The click I was referring too was not an audio click coming from speakers or headphones. I don't have any of that setup. A physical click is what I heard. Do you think thatbis what it is?

Lots and lots of discussion has taken place in this topic about the click(s) at startup. Just go back through these search results and read some of the posts about it ...

Yes, that's what it is. It is a physical relay - the white "NFC" box in the audio circuit is a physical relay that is responsible for that click.

yap, as long as CPU is capable. Although, I have to say, having the XMP profile for the speed you want is going to make the tertiary timings work for you..otherwise you'd be doing it manually or relying on the automatic profiling.

Some of these G.Skill sets have SPD for both 2133/2400, if they are older SB-E X79 stock, FYI.


Also, got word back from G.Skill this morning about the ICs and what we were talking about earlier about the MFR sticks, and as expected, no info was given.

OK. Just real strange why I couldn't even boot up to win 7 disk like I did before and do a fresh install. The moment it got to win 7 install logo it froze and blue screened. Will try what you guys suggested.
