I also thought that only the SATA ports that are part of the SATA Express hookups were supposed to affect, or trigger, the switch. I just dont know. Now I have a previous issue that has returned and I really need to know from anyone running multi-gpu set up on any of the X99 SLI (and variants) about this issue

This isnt a huge deal, but my Master GPU is reading as GPU2 and my slave card is registering as GPU1. This is with the cards both on x16 in slots 1 and 3. I dont think this will cause performance issues but...I just ran Killing Floor 2 and I noticed that my master GPU is hovering around 1% usage (sometimes its at 0) and at times my slave card (GPU1) is spiking to 100% and it also seems to be handling more of the workload than my master card. Im just wondering if anyone that owns one of these boards or a variant, that also has crossfire, has seen this before.

A bug(?) with the mobos result in wrong numbering of the GPUs. I have it also on the x99a Krait, made post on MSI forum, no reply to speak of.

I suggest reading this article: http://www.anandtech.com/show/8959/ddr4-haswell-e-scaling-review-2133-to-3200-with-gskill-corsair-adata-and-crucial

From my research, the X99 Haswell-E platform is buggy at high RAM speeds, it's not like the Skylake architecture where RAM and CPU overclocks are separate.

So the Haswell E CPU IMC will be pushed hard to reach 3000+ stealing CPU OC overhead. From that article I went with a 2666mhz with a CL 13 and so far so good with a 5820K CPU OC to 4.0

My old X99A Sli Plus did the same thing. For me is was a big deal and extremely annoying....so glad my new gigabyte board does not have this issue.

My old Asus Z77 board also had no problem with this, sadly it may look to be a MSI problem...

My godlike reverses the numbering order of the GPUs, AND for some dumb reason, reduces the lanes to PCIe 1 to 8x and leaves PCIe 4 at 16x when more than 1 gpu is installed.

 

you'd think...

Any one here has the Godlike board? Is it better than the Asus RAmpage 5?

Question on BIOS Windows WHQL Support setting

As Ive stated earlier, my system is reading my master card as GPU2 and slave card as GPU1. I didnt think it would affect performance but its still hard to tell. My question(s):

Has anyone just used the card in slot 3 as their master card and if so, has it run smoothly? Also, does your system automatically flip the card order around so that no matter what card your display is plugged into, that master card is always reading as "GPU2"? (Im referring to Afterburner reading it as GPU2)


I spoke to someone who has worked with MSI about this.

They speculated to me that the reason why the lower end boards are wired like this was they expected that the lower end boards would be paired with a 5820K. The 5820K of course can only support x16/x8/x4, so that works perfectly. Apparently they expect that people who buy top end CPUs will always get the higher end boards.


There is potentially a way around this. Get an x16 riser (used for mining) and plug in it. This is provided that you have a large enough case though.


On the BIOS bug, this seems to be widespread across MSI boards. There is another one - the USB one that seems to make it stuck at A2 or a similar code. This has been around since the Z77 and X79 days. It's not a big deal unless you have a USB boot device interfering with Windows though.

Haswell too cannot sustain beyond 2800 MHz with DDR3.

If you must overclock to those kinds of memory speeds, you will want to use the Bclk overclocking and raise the strap.

I would not recommend exceeding 1A of power draw.

If it is only 2.16W each, then that is just 0.18A, so a total of 0.36A, which is well under that.

Server grade boards generally have 3A and are designed for high speed industrial fans in mind, but consumer grade stuff just isn't as good.
