Still no ability to prevent Luxmark running alongside the stress test, but at least we can see CPU Temp now. CPU load seems similar to a max utilisation x.265 encoding task, I've observed CPU package power being higher with x.265 alone, I assume because of the AVX 2.0 instructions and less CPU resources being fought over. Not sure why they haven't made the leap to x.265 encoder, it's a better stress test IMHO.

Why would you want to prevent Luxmark running as part of the stress test?

I understand the need to max load on CPU and GPU at the same time - to test power supply draw and decide if your PSU is up to the job. But CPU and GPU can be tested individually and still be stable. Plus I prefer testing GPU stability with F@H because that's a more noble cause then Luxmark. biggrin.gif

Also worthy to note that full load tests do not test adaptive CPU voltage thoroughly. Changes in voltage when going through the bins (clock speeds) can also bring up stability issues depending on what offset you choose with adaptive (I use -ve offset). I prefer gaming to test variable loads on both CPU and GPU. No point wasting good hardware just for work. wink.gif

But whenever I've tested with Realbench, it's proven to be just as good a stress test as x.265 or F@H, so each to their own I suppose.

The bios update 3505 for Asus X99A/usb 3.1 is good? Any feedback ? If there is anyone with some feedback please share biggrin.gif

I don't have any problems with it, slightly better Aida64 Memory read score than 3402, and about 5-7% higher R/W/C bandwidth scores than any older version.

Nope. Stock speeds in AI Suite, as mentioned in the post. Manually set everything to stock in BIOS and AI suite... it still keeps randomly jacking them up, resulting in startup errors / failed OC warnings. Updated the BIOS at least twice. ASUS X99-A LGA 2011-v3 is the board in question on my dad's rig. (I built it / do all the troubleshooting on it... in the 1,000+ computers I've professionally built over the years, I've never seen anything quite like this oddness. Issue with BIOS is high on the list of likely causes... but it's sure as heck a weird one.)

Soooo, are the newer boards still having lots of toasted CPU issues, or are all those bad reviews on Newegg simply to be ignored?

I think it's time to take the X99 boards under the magnifying glass again ASUS. First Deluxes blowing up with Corsair PSU's and now we get this.

Do I need a hyperkit to run a NVME M.2 as system boot drive on my X99-A? When I read the Asus announcement it sounds like the case. I've seen reports the Samsung 960s don't show in BIOS or boot on X99-a.
