ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread (North American users only) - Page 1351

post #13501 of 15854
Well, it's official my ASUS Sabertooth X99 died on me last night!

The ordeal started when I went to install new NVIDIA drivers for my 980. Nvidia prompted me to restart after uninstalling the current drivers and then **poof**.

Now, I'm unable to get the system to post. I've exhausted every angle, pulled all the ram, running one stick only, pulled the GPU, tried an alternate GPU, pulled entire mobo to check for grounding issues. But alas, nothing!

The system gets hung up during post on 00D6 "Test NVRAM". I cannot get past this point, I've tried: clearing cmos, using bios flashback to succesfully flash the latest bios, as well as the existing bios.

ASUS support was well...yea..let's not even talk about that tragedy. I bought this board for the 5-year warranty and it hasnt even made it past the 450 day mark. Very sad, looking at other x99 boards at the moment so if anyone has a solid recommendation I'm all ears!

Correct settings?






Does RB have any advantage over OCCT?

When I ran OCCT some weeks ago (I don't run it anymore), it was 12 houurs. 8 hours is "ok".
Advantage of Realbench is that it stresses the GPU also.
For gaming rig, Realbench is a must to ensure stability.

OCCT stability is "Golden" for every computer, not only gaming.
It ensures stability for extreme heavy loads

New beta BIOS 0903 has been issued for Deluxe II.

What are the improvments versus 0801 ?

So I must run OCCT for at least 12 hours to ensure stability?



I have run Realbench for target 8 hours, didn't crash the GPU. But there is no option to run unlimited time.

Now, I'm unable to get the system to post. I've exhausted every angle, pulled all the ram, running one stick only, pulled the GPU, tried an alternate GPU, pulled entire mobo to check for grounding issues. But alas, nothing!

The system gets hung up during post on 00D6 "Test NVRAM". I cannot get past this point, I've tried: clearing cmos, using bios flashback to succesfully flash the latest bios, as well as the existing bios.

ASUS support was well...yea..let's not even talk about that tragedy. I bought this board for the 5-year warranty and it hasnt even made it past the 450 day mark. Very sad, looking at other x99 boards at the moment so if anyone has a solid recommendation I'm all ears!


Hmmmm so Asus isn't replacing under warranty ?

My X99A-3.1 died similarly , Realbench had just finish and suddenly the Nvidia Driver stop responding and then recovered , so I decided to reboot to make sure the NV Driver was refreshed and that was it .....no reboot, no nada. The Store replaced the Board 3 times and then I was given a X99A II but it turned out the original issue had killed the 5820k too , so that went to Intel for RMA too.

Oh nooo. I really hope my 5820 is ok... They refused to advance RMA me and I use this rig for work. They want 7 business days to repair it if I send it in. I've read horror stories of this process.

Sorry didn't mean to ruin your night...I have heard it can take 2-3 weeks but I was more thinking if it's possible to borrow a CPU to try that 1st , just incase.

I could see Solderballs next to the PCIe Slot and one of the rect. black and white chips looked like it had been cooked , it was a different color than the others nearby.

Not saying that is your issue but it's strangely similar , at 1st I thought I had killed the GTX 970 , but like you couldn't get any other card to post either.

My initial experience with BIOS 0903:

Beta is Bettah! thumb.gif

I got better overclocking: 4587 CPU with 1.38 adaptive turbo instead of 1.385 with 3.5 hours RealBench (OK, 209 minutes then RB died), and was able to get my ram to 13-15-12-17-CR1 with 1.43 vdimm with 80 minutes GSAT (no spiking).
