I'm just trying to attack this at all sides before it comes down to JUST a 4.5 chip. This is a great board and I just want to give it the best parts. Also in your experience with these high clocks do you feel an 860W PSU ( corsair platinum ) is enough? I have the GPU's on a separate power source ( plat 1200AXi)
Adjust power limits, maybe. The 0504 BIOS has some issues with power limits, even at stock. I trip PSU power detection all the time, OC, pull more power, it works fine
Or a couple of LN2 sessions hurt my board. My LAN also now doesn't work unless I reboot, or go into BIOS from cold boot, and restart, so the LAN problem is the board for sure...LAN won't start unless warm-booted, or I remove driver in OS and warm-boot that way.

Mine pulls 250W easy @ 4.5 GHz. All three. 4960X at stock, dual 780 Ti @ stock... 853 W by my wall-wart meter. That 250W figure, however, was measured at the 8-pin.
Raja, I am sure that Intel is having some silicon issues. Don't underestimate how bad some retail chips can be.
That said, LunaP is running dual mismatched PSUs, and I want to blame that.Edited by cadaveca - 3/5/14 at 11:21am
