ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread (North American users only) - Page 978

So guys, fun story time.

Bought a H110 GT and attempted to fit it into my R5. Turns out the rad for that damn cooler uses 20mm spacing, and not 15mm like with the GTX.

So it turns out I couldn't fit it, oh well. Put case back together and turn it on - Ram slot B1 isn't being recognised. Had happened before, so I reseat and switch sticks around a few times - still nothing. Give up for now and boot to windows.

And somehow my NIC is ****ed. smile.gif It can only send data now and not receive, tried swapping cable, different port on the router, tried a laptop through the same cable and port and it did fine, also tried reinstalling drivers.

So somehow the NIC just got killed. Losing my patience with X99 fast. Skylake sounding like a much better idea by the minute.

Before saying it's 100% dead, unplug the PSU, and drain everything (hold the mobo/chassis power button for 30 seconds). Then pull the CMOS out and leave the mobo to rest for 10 minutes. Hook everything back up and try again. Sometimes the RAM slots fail to POST if you screw down the CPU heatsink too hard. Not sure about the NIC, but you'd better hope it's not ESD damage.

Given it was fine before attempting to fit the cooler I don't think changing platform is the way to solve your problems.

It wasn't. I had forgotten to mention that the RAM thing had happened before, but reseating it a few times fixed it, so I didn't bother investigating any further.

I'm aware x99 mobos are known for their dead ram slots, and I've had issues with USB before on other mobos. I've never seen a platform with so many people going though multiple mobos, have you?

I don't think dead ram slots are actually a common occurrence, but I guess I could be mistaken - if it was, potentially more of a DOA problem. From what you're saying the slot issue sounded intermittent, so possibly over-torquing of the CPU mount or motherboard screws. If reseating was resolving it before that also would suggest similar.

Who knows, the fact still remains changing for an even newer platform in it's infancy and in actual fact downgrading depending on the machines application is an odd solution

I've had a dead dram problem before with a rampage III formula. I rma'd one and was ready to rma the second one when I came across the over-tightened MB screw near the DRAM scenario. I checked it out, loosened the screw near the dead DRAM and bingo! DRAM now registered.

Exactly. Any mobo tends not to like it when the memory section is pushed against a chassis more than it needs to.

Hi alla, what are the x99 Asus mobos that supporta 4 way SLI?
Does x99 deluxe support 4 way SLI? If not, what Asus mobo supports it?

Is there an hardware reason why x99 deluxe does bot support 4 way SLI?

Thanks.

X99-E WS is probably the best one to go for.

As to why they don't all support 4-way SLI, is because it's expensive to place PCIe lanes and PLX switches on a mobo. Also because for most users the benefit of 4-way vs. 3-way SLI is tiny for gaming. Maybe for a dedicated workstation grade rig (which i.e. the X99-E WS is marketed towards). Scaling deteriorates quickly after 2-way, AMD has superior scaling.

Interesting thoughts guys, it might be a potential overtightening issue, but the dead NIC will still be a problem.

As for downgrading to Skylake, it was mostly through frustration of the X99 platform. I guess I'll go for a replacement 99S board and try again, and be mindful of the screws as well (I just tighten until it stops moving easily with my fingers, then just a notch with a screwdriver. Perhaps I'll just hand tighten next time).

I definitely didn't overtighten the Mobo screws at least, I screw those until simple finger twisting on the screw driver doesn't cut it anymore. No need to use the wrist torque for those little things.
