Got my X99M Extreme4 today... DAYUM I had no clue the 2011 CPUs were that big!! None of the CPUs I've had in the past have even come close! (s775, 1366, 1156, 1155, 1150) Looking forward to getting my CPU in the next day or two and getting everything put together smile.gif

enjoy! just be fore warned... the bioses on asrock boards have a few quirks and weird tib bits sometimes but in the end, the boards just work GREAT

anyone have any feedback with the new bios for the X99 KillerX USB3.1 bios ver 3.10?? Im still using the year old beta bios ver L1.16 and it is very stable so im scared to flash to another bios when technically I have no complaints!

Works for me, which I can't say for V3.00. Adaptive cache voltage is broken since V1.00, so that isn't new, other than that it works. Remember to write down your OC settings because it deletes your profiles, and you can't flash from older bios if you save it to USB or somewhere else.

Will try it out, thanks

Music to my ears. I just returned an Asus workstation motherboard because of boot issues and stability problems. So many headaches for a 500$+ board. These Asrock boards are almost half that price. I am looking for something rock solid and stable since I leave my system on for long periods of time. Any suggestions?

I enjoy my X99 Killer X 3.1 board. Been reliable for the last year and its very OC'd, and playing nice with a SLi 980Ti setup without a hicup. If i was you, i'd try to find this board or even the new Tiachi X99 board. newegg has it for 229$.. damn nice board

Figured I'd throw this out here in this thread instead of opening a new one. You can see my rig below, the 5960x on an ASRock X99 OC Formula. My problem is both of my 780 Ti's are running in x8 mode of PCIe 3.0. A while back the MSI one that is in the first PCIe slot was running 16x and the Asus one in the 3rd slot was running at 8x. It didn't really bother me because there is little to no loss of performance in 2 way sli 16x to 8x on PCIe 3.0 so I let it slide and blamed my M.2 Nvme SSD that takes 4x PCIe lanes up but now they are both running at 8x which is really puzzling. For one, even with the NVMe drive I should have plenty of lanes left over for both cards to run at 16x. According to the manual the NVMe M.2 Ultra slot turns off the 3rd PCIe slot and uses 4 lanes. I have my cards in PCIe slots 1 and 4 which should both be 16x according to the ASRock stats page for my board that I will paste here below:
Quote:
Expansion / Connectivity
Slots - 5 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 Slots (PCIE1/PCIE2/PCIE3/PCIE4/PCIE5: single at x16 (PCIE1); dual at x16 (PCIE1) / x16 (PCIE4); triple at x8 (PCIE1) / x8 (PCIE2) / x16 (PCIE4); quad at x8 (PCIE1) / x8 (PCIE2) / x8 (PCIE4) / x8 (PCIE5))*
- 1 x Half Mini-PCI Express Slot
- Supports AMD Quad CrossFireX™, 4-Way CrossFireX™, 3-Way CrossFireX™ and CrossFireX™***
- Supports NVIDIA® Quad SLI™, 4-Way SLI™, 3-Way SLI™ and SLI™***

*If you install CPU with 28 lanes, PCIE1/PCIE2/PCIE3/PCIE4/PCIE5 will run at x16/x0/x4/x8/x0 or x8/x8/x4/x8/x0, and PCIE5 will be disabled.

**If Ultra M.2 PCI Express module is installed, PCIE3 slot will be disabled.
I've read up and can't find any reason for the second one running at 8x much less both now running at 8x. I have no other peripherals that take up andy PCIe lanes so with a 5960x I should have more than enough to run 2 cards in slot 1 and 4 at 16x and 1 NVMe M.2 Ultra drive at 4x with the 3rd PCIe slot disabled. The only thing that has changed since both going to 8x instead of just one is video drivers and Windows versions. I'm running the fast ring insider preview of Windows 10 so I'm constantly upgrading Windows but I periodically do a full format and fresh install to remove any lingering bugs from older versions. I really don't think the OS has much to do with it, just giving all the information I can. I do have both of the cards flashed with skyn3t's custom BIOS for 780 Ti's but I don't think that would affect them, it never did on a single card and have all my PCIe slots put on Gen 3 in the UEFI. I've tried disabling the 4th PCIe slot with the little switch on the board and running just the single MSI card in slot 1 and it still will only run at 8x. I'm at a loss as to why either is doing it. I was confused but not concerned when I first bought my 2nd card and it would only run at 8x and the 1st card would still run at 16x but now with them both running at only 8x I'm really lost. I've thought about taking out the NVMe drive and using a thumb drive windows install to see if they will both go to 16x or stay a 8x to rule it out as the problem but if anyone else has any other ideas or knows something I'm completely missing, please assist me. I'd greatly appreciate it.

Edit: Something just came to mind to try. Disable all other PCIe slots not in use in the UEFI and/or the dip switches just in case they are pulling some lanes away for some odd reason. BTW, I have updated to the newest BIOS/UEFI and reset it to factory defaults more times than I can remember so that will not help. I'll reply back after work tonight after I try forcing all empty unoccupied PCIe slots off in the BIOS and with the dip switches.

Ok, I'm going to cross post this in the Nvidia Video Card section since it probably won't get looked at by near as many people in here. If a Mod feels the need, they can delete the one here since it will be cross posting and I know that is frowned upon on almost all forums. I'll leave it to your discretion, mods. Thanks. Though I will be keeping up with this thread as well just in case someone else knows anything about it.

Nevermind. The issue seems to have resolved itself after I did a fresh BIOS re-update and reset everything back to factory defaults. I added my CPU and GPU oc's back and they are both now staying at 8GT/s (x16) under load. The only thing I haven't put back the way it was before are my ram clocks and timings. Though I highly doubt that would have anything to do with this type of problem. I'm just glad that for the first time since I got my 2nd card they are both running at 16x. It's a mystery that I will gladly ignore. Thanks for anyone that read through my more than elaborate first post. smile.gif
