ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread (North American users only) - Page 1167

The issues are knowledge related. I don't cover ASUS EU support, so you will need to contact them to help you.

Hey guys, let me start by saying that if any of you feel that I should not post this question here, I apologize for that already. I have searched for an answer, and can't seem to find a real answer. So here is my question:

I can get a new X99 Deluxe for an exceptionally good price at our local Micro Center, but when I look at all the reviews, and read about the stories of the X99 Deluxe killing CPUs, that kind of has me scared to get the board. From what I understand that happened while overclocking, or running an XMP test, etc....

Anyways long story short, are issues like that still an issue, or have they been resolved by now with BIOS updates. I would be getting a 5820K as that is plenty for my needs, and I'm not a crazy overclocker either (I run my chips stock unless bench-marking).

And yes I will make sure that I update the BIOS before putting the CPU in to make sure that board is running the latest and the greatest.

Thanks in advance for any help and responses.

Jesse

It's not an issue, the one confirmed case by legit reviews was incredibly difficult to replicate and turned out to be a combination of the power up phase with certain older PSU, and a manufacturing defect on the that board sample.

Not to mention the firmware was also rectified along time ago to prevent something this unlikely from happening regardless. In short, you've got more chance of winning the lottery than running into any kind of board failure.

That helps put my mind to ease. As with any website (Amazon or Newegg), half of the reviews are just cases of the ID10T error.

Thanks for your response.

In my opinion, nobody should base their own opinion or take anything said in the review sections of such sites seriously. Much nearer launch we had one guy claiming a board failure - when probed it turned out he had tried to fit a 1150 backplate or similar. Best to learn by doing and not live vicariously through people like that.

Can anyone confirm if Noctua NH-D15 or Dark Rock Pro 3 will block PCIE 1 on a ASUS Sabertooth X99?

Well at-least he didn't try fitting a 1150 CPU on a X99 board. I wanted to ask the question here as I know I can get a decent answer from actual owners hopefully.

So thanks again, I will go pick up the board and the CPU tonight.

How do I determine the offset value when using adaptive mode?

Say for eg it's stable @ 4.3GHz and 1.2v on manual, then what is the offset value when using adaptive?

Thanks

do you know what you stock VID is?

if so VID+offset=vcore (+/- a bit)

No idea sorry.
I have a 5930k & an X99-A if that helps.

It seems okay at 1.195v and I left adaptive offset on auto, CPU-Z says 1.207v at full load.

Before on manual @ 1.195v, cpuz read 1.198v at full load.
Does this mean that I can put adaptive offset to -0.009?
