Ugh, just realized I posted the following in the wrong thread. So here it is in the correct thread:
Picked up a 5960x... All the issues I had with memory are gone. Seems like the IMC of my 5930k is a real lemon. The 32GB 3000MHz Corsair LPX 15-17-17-35 kit I had been running at 2666 13-15-15-32 is now running 3000mhz 14-16-16-35 on my 5960x, training, etc, all enabled and I never see dropping sticks. Haven't had time to do my intended move to 3101 yet.
I'm having a new hot restart issue since updating to 3009 where attempting to restart will get stuck at code 76... PCH DXE initialization. I didn't have this particular issue with older bioses... But no amount of resetting resolves it. While this is happening the fourth PCIE slot light blinks. I don't have a device in this slot, and I normally have the PCIE switch for this set to OFF, but I tried both positions and it behaves the same. I have to power off with the switch on my PSU, wait a minute, and then power back up for a cold start. At which point it tells me my overclock failed, I go into bios, hit f10 without making changes and restart... Then everything works as expected.
I've tried the following:
1. Removing all external devices(usb hub, usb dac, phone chargers, hdd dock).
2. Disabling either of my GPUs. I've tried turning off both independently using the lane switches and unplugging the off gpu from power.
3. Tried running on a single stick of ram(and I tried more than one stick) at stock 2133 settings.
4. Bumping pch voltage up in 0.005v increments from 1.050 to 1.075. I'm not sure what the tolerance of this voltage is so I stopped there.
I don't have any other 'internal' devices other than my GPUs and my SSD/HDD's. I've also tested using "Shut Down" instead of "Restart" from windows and it behaves exactly the same. So there seems to be some stuck state of some kind that persists through a shutdown and only gets cleared when you fully cut power.
Anyone have any suggestions for this? I'm at a loss of how to isolate this.
