It hasn't gone 'red text' yet on me, and the interrupt hasn't going to frighteningly high numbers.

I'll keep monitoring and keep you guys updated, but an early conclusion looks to be, while the nvidia kernel driver has always been a resource hog, it seems complete ******** on Windows 10.

Wasn't on this rig as I posted above. IDK what was borked in your W10 install.

Through multiple installs I'm doubting it was something borked in W10. Perhaps latent issues in the GPU itself were more present in Win10.

Perhaps I should just replace the GPU as a very last resort, and if it still happens then I'm going to consoles. tongue.gif

What GPU were you using? Also, yours is the only test where I haven't seen an insanely high pagefault count, ever. Did you configure something? I'd say yours is the unusual result for that.

Hey guys,
I can appreciate that this forum topic is aimed at North Americans only, but I hope you guys don't mind having a token Euro around, especially as I can't see a European Asus X99 topic...

Anyway, I am from Europe, or the UK more specifically. About 3 weeks ago I purchased the Asus X99-A/USB 3.1 motherboard to go in my brand new PC build (16GB DDR4 HyperX RAM, 980 Ti, 5820K CPU). I loved the look of the X99-A and performance seemed good, I was so excited... But things went downhill pretty quick

Basically, if the computer was left to go idle it would put the CPU into it's 8x multiplier (0.4Ghz) and then it wouldn't ever change, no matter what I did with the PC, even if I ran an intense program like Prime or did some video editing. It made for an incredibly stuttering experience, completely unusable. The only way to get the CPU off the 8x multiplier was to reboot the PC, which as you can imagine isn't something you can do longterm (especially when you've just spend £2,000/$3,000 on a new build).

So my questions really are if anyone has heard or had experience with this themselves? Can I put this down to a motherboard fault? As I am sure you can imagine, RMA'ing components is really stressful, so I just wanted to get some other perspectives on the situation at hand. It could be the CPU I guess but I don't know how a consumer would be able to test that? It's not like I have a spare £500 CPU+Motherboard just lying around as a testing rig haha

So yeah, thanks for taking the time to read and sorry for invading the topic (briefly)

P.s. I should note, I was using the lates X99-A 3.1 BIOS 1901 and the problem persisted
post #9644 of 15886
@demonhotrod - I have the same MB (also 1901) & CPU and have not experienced this, either out-of-the-box all auto or manually overclocked. Can you give us some info on your settings? Also, how did you get 1901 on the MB?

Hi there, thanks for the reply

In regards to the settings, I'm not too sure what I can tell you. I didn't change anything from how it arrived stock, I didn't try and overclock or do anything. Everything was as "out of the box" as it could be. I did update the BIOS, when it arrived it had 1401 (I think), so I downloaded the new BIOS onto a memory stick (fat32), booted into the BIOS and used EZ Flash
post #9646 of 15886
I've had weird behavior happen using EZ Flash on occasion. The most reliable method is BIOS Flashback.

Rename the BIOS "X99AU31.CAP", put the USB flash drive in the special Flashback USB port in the back (has green border around it), turn system off and push the Flashback button at the top of the shield for a few seconds. That will get it rolling and when it's done everything will be off. It's the most reliable way to flash.

With the machine at optimised defaults after backing up if required, format and reinstall the operating system and see if the problem persists.

Hi,
is there a reason to control CPU Fan and Optional CPU Fan separately?

I have my H80i GT AIO pump connected to the CPU Fan header and I want it always at max and I have a 140mm fan connected to the CPU Optional Fan header and I want to modulate its speed.

Is it possible to do it with Asus X99 Deluxe?
I see only one regulation for both CPU Fan and Optional CPU Fan header, why?

You can controll any fan header separately on newer asus boards. Be it a system fan header or cpu/cpu opt. Asus is really couple steps ahead in that area.

Ah! Thanks very much for this, i'll try out what you suggested but I can tell you that the problem I was having, happened both using the original motherboard BIOS (0401) and after updating to 1901, so I don't hold out much hope of an update fixing anything... I'll definitely try though! If nothing else you've told me what to rename the BIOS CAP file, you wouldn't believe how long I was searching around for the name I had to use but couldn't find it anywhere! Even on the Asus website

Hi there,
Thanks for the reply
I have actually already tried formatting and reinstalling the OS. It was actually one of the first things I tried as it was a new build and I hadn't put any personal data onto the machine yet (only drivers etc), I thought maybe the update from Windows 7 to 10 had caused a problem but a clean install of 10 had the same issue and so did rolling back to Windows 7. So I get the feeling this is a hardware issue, I just don't know which bit of hardware! rolleyes.gifbiggrin.gif

Thanks for all the help so far everyone. I do really appreciate it!
