I went to that article and found the site to get the standalone driver! Thanks for the information thumb.gif

I have had a hunch about that, tried to opt out of mobos with those NICs. I prefer Intel, second option Realtek.

Just wanted to share what happened with my RMA experience. The MSI service center in California had a replacement motherboard sent out really fast, and the new MB arrived via UPS in two days (I got an -S model back, not the new -A. oh well). The replacement board was obviously refurbished, in fact, it had chunks of old thermal paste all around the CPU socket blinksmiley.gif and there were greasy fingerprints all over the board, but ok whatever. weirdsmiley.gifweirdsmiley.gifweirdsmiley.gif

I plugged everything back in, including the full slots of memory for 64 GB total, and on the first boot everything worked perfectly! Then I selected the RAM's XMP to 2666, cranked my OC up to where it was before, and all 64 GB continued to work great with no problems. I didn't have to set voltages, change SA, or anything else. Everything just works. My Krait is back to being awesome again!

I have to say the RMA process with MSI was really good, and I'm happy to be running again. applaud.gif

Side note: while my board was away, I added a custom watercooling loop to my case. Idle temps dropped from +16º above ambient to +4º. Gonna try for higher OC soon. Vanity shot of CPU block + all 64 GB of RAM in the new MB:

Had a strange issue with my x99a Gaming 7, I uninstalled MSI's Live Update Service, after it finished I got a hard lock.
Machines been fine all day now, even after a 10 hour torture test with AIDA64, XTU, Realbench and OCCT.

I've also noticed the MSI Command centre never updates the settings, you still need to go into the BIOS to change anything like fan curves etc, even though it shows on the software it just doesn't stick.
Could be a Windows 10/UEFI Bios thing though.

Very happy to hear you 're up and running again. I still haven't tested mine with all the ram slots occupied and I don't know if I ever will. Btw I have the same waterblock and I worry a a bit for its mounting mechanism. It seems the X99 mechanism in contrast to other sockets allows you to apply as much force as you choose (ie it doesn't have a 'stop' mechanism). Was it hard to determine how much you should push it?

funny you should say that, literally an hour ago I was looking at the same question, because I just got this:

XSPC RayStorm Aluminum Mounting Bracket

since I didn't like the standard plastic one. The included springs on the mounting kit are really stiff too, making the over-tightening even worse. My current thinking is just to get it snug, then maybe 1/4 to 1/2 turn more, and just assume the designers would have added hard stops if there were real risks, I guess -? worriedsmiley.gif

You might be guessing wrong. I'd advice to be conservative with it. Irreversible damage may be improbable however a very tight fit can compromise the pcb connections between the cpu and ram.
The aluminum bracket is a good idea.

You know, looking at it some more, it's entirely possible that the standard plastic mounting bracket is meant to have some flex by design, to prevent over-tightening. I may have to add something customized to make sure the solid aluminum bracket doesn't transfer too much force (looser springs, or something).

let me know if you find anything else about this.

as long as you don't bottom-out (fully compress) the springs, there should be no chance of over tightening.
