100 Strap
turn X.M.P OFF
set all cores manual to 42
leave CPU cache settings at the moment you can play with them later (40-42 depending on other factors)
set Ram to 3200 in tweaker
in RAM Timings put what it says on side of you ram in settings, scroll down to "eventual voltage" and put what it says on your RAM

set you CPU voltage to "adaptive" 1.225 +0.050offset
CPU input voltage to 1.93
CPU system agent 0.350 up to 0.411(somewhere in that range for disappearing memory)
VCCIO CPU 1.05v Voltage 1.0750
VTTDDR voltage(cha,chb,chc,chd) 0.67500

two points: do not fear PCH temps, they going to be high till you bed in the board, and try get that ssd off the M.2 port instead get them onto PCI-E slots with an adapter

i.e https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboard-Accessories/HYPER_M2_X4_MINI_CARD/

if you using AiSuite disable auto start up, instead load it manual make sure all the settings that you put into bios are reflected in Aisuite, if not change them and save to Aisute(always handy because Aisute loves High voltages)

3rd

this is what i did to the side of my corsair 750D(yes that's my what my boot did, after a few weeks of having my X99e-ws v1.01, but when i sat down and thought about a few things read most of the pages in this long thread and it all became clear and now i have to buy a new panel frown.gif





your 4th problem is an odd one your board doesn't do IDE(old skool) you would need a converter to sata smile.gif

Thanks for your pointers, got any more?

Update on how far I got

===============================================================================================================================================

RAMWISE :
-step 1 :
when I select the speed of the RAM manually it boots perfect at 2400Mhz.. any higher and the system refuses to boot.
-step 2 :
when I select 2800Mhz, and 1.35V (the default settings as on the box for my 128GB of ram) the system flat out refuses to boot.
-step 3 :
tuning it down I got it to run no higher than 2400Mhz at frap 100 not even at 1.5V (more than factory settings)
-step 4
I increased strap to 125, later 166 and even 250
I got it to run semi-stable at 2500Mhz, 1.30V, fram 125. (semi-stable because will it will boot 100% of the time, 1 in 15 boots the system will not boot all 8 ram modules but only 2, 4 or 6.
Higher fraps seems to make the ram more instable.. and will not boot over 2200Mhz, higher voltage does nothing,
2600Mhz, 2666Mhz, 2700Mhz, 2750Mhz, 2800mhz all tried at different strap settings, and different voltages (1.20, 1.25, 1.30 1.35, 1.40, 1.45, 1.50 and where possible at all frap settings
(100, 125, 166, 250)
none would boot.
-
what am I forgetting that it will not work at factory settings??
any other settings that can play a role here?
or should I try 3000 and 3200 (would be strange that an OC would work but not stock speed, or perhaps the reason it did not work is because i cannot put it to high Mhz wise, without also modding the cas values? (what are they at stockwise anyway, perhaps there is the problem.... well will try that next.. will keep you informed.
-
still need to fiddle with the cas settlings.

=======================================================================================================================================================

CPU-WISE :
-step 1
*set OC om manual
*set strap on 125
*set cores 1 on 36x (and have all cores sync that number)

This has my CPU run at 3750Mhz, for all 8 cores, with a boost to 4500Mhz.
I have not tried pushing it further and have done some tests on the game Kerbal Space Program, that generally is CPU heavy.
-CPU as far as I could see never hit over 40 degrees celcius (it did hit 39 degreesm, and stayed around that number)
*I would like to be able to turn boost off to better montir what happens here.

is this higher strap doing any damage? if I put strap at 100 and cores on 45x, cpu will stay at stock 3000Mhz, but only increases it's boost from 3500Mhz to 4500Mhz.
It will boot fine when I do that... but the ram will not run at 2500Mhz with a strap of 100, at strap 100 the ram will only boot at 2400Mhz.

is this higher frap bad? I noticed that the XMP profile uses frap 125 (but than puts the actual clock at 102??)

I never fiddled myself with cpu voltages... everything is still on auto I have accidently tried to boot it once at 6000Mhz, it would not ofcourse, 5000mhz as top boost it will boot.
but as long as i cannot get around this "boost" problem.. and incrrease the base clock, I am not tempting faith.. 25% oc + 25% oc as boost is already a somewhat decent result.
But I prefered a flat +40-50% oc and no more boost.

concerning stability, the game KSP DID crash once (as in closed down completely without warning) not sure if that was hardware or software related.
(the game may have some bugs as well)
Game did not flinch nor showed a warning or report of a sudden shutdown, game just -aaand it's gone- and the pc kept running everything else, inclusing background musing fine.

=============================================================================================================================================

I do not have a M.2 SSD, it's a regulair SATA SSD.
You might be confused, it;s the 850 PRO 1TB SATA SSD thats not an M.2
I prefered size over the extra speed.
the intel 1.2GB was at nearly 1200 euro's to expensive (already tossed in well over 6000 euro's in this build, it has to stop somewhere) but the only alternative
the intel 400GB was to small
the samsung 950pro 512MB was to small, I would have bought it if they had a 1TB version, but they do not.

Still it should boot a lot faster than a traditional harddisk... and load my games faster.. it seem to do.. but not by the factor I expected... (it's about 3 times as fast... I gues my old regulair harddisks already were of fast types as regulair disks go around 120MB/s-150MB/s tops versus this ssd's 540MB/s

all the bios checks take about 15-20 seconds. (and the end of it 3 white blibs on a black screen)
after that it either is instantly in the UEFI screen, or instantly in win7
so its more the bios that boots slow, than the win7:P
the game I played always took a long time to load about 20-30 seconds, thats now down to 4-5 seconds.. so proper improvement.. still not like POOF go!

Well an M.2 I will look for when an 1TB one costs about the same 500 euro's I paid for this sata SSD
===========================

Concerning the regulair harddrives, my bad, ofcourse they are SATA harddrives, old age getting up to me;)
I still refer to classic hardrives to "ide drives" even though the last PC I owned that even had such a connection was like a decade ago:P

But the problem is clear : they apear in the early boot sequence (pressing F2 I was able to set them in Raid 1
they do NOT apear in the UEFI (and I cannot select them in boot sequence)
Windows 7 does NOT see it (as such I cannot store data on it, there simply IS no D drive.. why I have no clue.
When I installed Windows 7, it also did not see the drive.

When I look from the intel speed boost program (no clue what installed that, an update or the cd?) from within win7
it does see the drives..

so why does win7 not see them?

===========================
Got any hints for that not registering fanhub?

the connection goes like :
Mobo 4 pin connection -> fanhub -> upto 11x 3 pin connection (6 actually connected)
Mobo 4 pin connection -> fanhub -> upto 11x 3 pin connection (5 actually connected)

the first one does register in the UEFI (as fan 4/8)
the second one does not apear in the UEFI (even though all fans connected to it are turning

how to make it show up?
====================================================================

oh and a new problem arose :

Windows 7 eats like 160-200GB of harddisk space.
(I have only windows 7 and all essential updates (not of the recomended yet) installed.
-on op of that I installed all things on the mobo CD (cept the audi drivers) and the drivers from the networkcard-cd (just ran all asus.exe file on it)
-I downloaded the latest driver from nvidea, and the latest audio driver from asus, and installed both too.

*I somehow was not (yet) able to install Never10, as it keeps saying my version of windows update is not compatable with it.

Any hints how to get windows 7 down to realistic proportions... (I already used commandprompt to turn hybernate off, that seemed to free 123GB, and cut space use back to 70GB (still a lot) but shorty after it spiked again to 120GB.

I know it is windows 7 ultimate, but on some other pc, windows 7 home premium, MS office, corel office, kapersky, powerdvd, and la ****load more of "utility programs" to together not consume over 40-50 GB. so why this installment eats away so mutch is strange to me.

i forgot the actual speed of your ram?
please remember that it's a new everything you have, it will take a while for everything to bed in and start pulling proper frequency's thumb.gif

ramwise:

step 1: 100 strap
step 2: you might want to increase system agent voltage(that's SYSTEM AGENT) in bios anything 0.350 to 0.450, this could be higher as you running 128gb ram,
step 3: sure you have filled in manually "eventual voltage" in ram setting, and on the tweaker page put the ram voltage to auto
step 4: try to boot with the settings that work and then use Aisuite to get your other voltages into bios
step 5:you need to put ALL the info on the side of your ram including the Volts into ram setting do not pick the voltage out of your head atm, use what it says on ram, you can increase the voltage when everything is stable i.e my corsair dom plats 3000 are 1.35volts i have them running at 3200 1.38volts only a tiny ammount, if you have RAM heatsinks USE them
step 6: bf, bd,bd,bd,bd,b7,00, and all the rest of those crash numbers follow step 7 smile.gif
STEP 7: (yes in caps) System agent, system agent, system agent voltage!
8: as far as i know from previous posts in this forum that 3000 won't work, my experience my ram booted to 3000 only once(and never again, weird), so 3200 was aimed for, try adjusting System Agent smile.gif

CPU:
intel turbo boost: i'd uninstall it(get rid of it), get a hold(not a necessity but good to have) of https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24075/Intel-Extreme-Tuning-Utility-Intel-XTU-
step 1, only 100 strap to start with, you can 125 strap when you more comfortable, when turning off XMP , make sure the clk settings are back at 100 strap with init clk @100
step 2, set cores 0-7 on 36x do not use "all cores sync" instead put 36 in all the spaces i.e set cores manual
step 3: stay away from x45 atm you want to try get the thing stable @ 35
step 4: DO NOT USE XMP, DO NOT USE XMP, DO NOT USE XMP
step 6: again bf, bd,bd,bd,bd,b7,00, and all the rest of those crash numbers follow step 7 smile.gif one thing if you get "00" some would have you believe your CPU and your board is naff and needs RMA'd DO NOT LISTEN, just clear cmos or wait till the reboots and takes it out of the cycle and it pulls it's head out of it ass then back to bios for settings change
STEP 7: (yes in caps) System agent, system agent, system agent voltage!

raid:

you should see a setting in your bios on the EZbios screen that say "intel raid(on off slider)" enable on, i think it's a ctrl F11 just after you press save and reboot, setup raid through that way and it will appear in your bios in one of the sections, BE AWARE the x99e-ws firmware updates destroys RAID something to be aware of if using it

someone else might have other options on RAID issue

still a nice big HDD smile.gif
i have a 950 pro 256, 3xcorsair force 3 RAID0, 2x1tb mech drives, most of my stuff is offloaded to either RAID0 or mech drives via junctions and/or symlinks, also if you need to trim up RAID drives you need IRST version 14.8.0.1042 i don't think asus recommend it with this board, but i have never had any problem thumb.gif


regarding your FANS, look in your bios in EZbios there should be a section for fan at bottom of screen, go in there and make sure all the 4 pins fans are set to PWM mode, other than that you ccould buy a PWM spliter and control the fans as one fan off one header but you will need to set the 4 pin fans to PWM if you don't they will roar at you smile.gif, you can set fans in bios and in Aisuite to alter any speed to quiet it down,



Windows 10
make a full backup of you C: drive, download the "download tool" from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10
run it
do what it says, then what you need is windows 10 pro x64 version, not 32 bit version you'll need a 4gb pen drive(recommended), or blank DVD(do they still exist?)
wouldn't worry about windows to much both windows 10 and win7 you can use Hardlinks and windows let you offload "docs, picture, video" to mech drives i use "hardlinkshell"(recommended) to set up junctions/syslinks, also if you want get a copy(from asus) of "RAMDISK" this is useful for junctions but not recommended by me,


will have a look further into my settings see if i can find some more jucie bits for you

i found it's all about system agent voltage for the thing to work, also "sleep mode is your friend" until you get fully stable

have fun smile.gif one more thing, the board and CPU you have are for the enthusiasts(don't be disheartened if you have a/many problems or kick the thing, just start from beginning, (clear CMOS), if you wanted something easy and straight forward to setup i would recommend a consumer board with a consumer CPU smile.gif silly wink.gif

if i'm waffling please feel free to put me right smile.gif

Have to work today (meh), will go to fiddle with your hints tonight.
My ram is Corsair Dominator Platinum 128GB (8x16) 2800Mhz CL14
Productcode : CMD128GX4M8B2800C14
and the fans on top ofthem : CMDAF Dominator Airflow Platinum LED Fan
Productcode : CMDAF

Will not install windows 10, (I don't want malware on my rig tyvm, and I consider win10 malware)
I am actually trying to get Never10 to run because MS tries to sneaky force you to upgreade on so many sneaky ways.. even while I clearly not want too.
I even paid premium on ebay to obtain a Full Retail disk of Windows 7 Ultimate UK (32 and 64 bit included, though ofc I only installed the 64 bit one)
*note that it does not include SP1, so installing it took a little longer.

That this board and such had lots of options I knew.
I red the enthousiast thing more as a "pay through your nose, to get a little speedbump over them mainstream platform suckers;)
I did in fact expect everything standard to work plug and play standard, (or at least boot properly, and the ram booting at advertised speed properly)
So I expected to START at 2800Mhz ram, and start tweaking to get it higher.. not having to fight to get it there and have halve a dosin things nog registrating:P
Perhaps I am a little silly indeed, but well I mcguiver my way to 100+FPS at 1440p, especially when that store deliveres my second Galax 980ti (at 500 euro's not getting a second one was not an option)

nah nah with this board, both intel, asus, corsair all want you to work hard to get this een up and running if they made it that easy it wouldn't be fun or keep your attention, but you see when you get it stable a big glorious smile and that warm feeling of happiness that can only be achieved by the master that configured it (yourself) smile.gif

AIDA64 is recommend for benching and stability, so is XTU with some interesting options smile.gif

totally wrong with windows 10, once you get rid of the small amount of bloat that microsoft puts in it runs really well, if you worried about malware run "malwarebytes" or "windows defender", win10 is better than win7 + you've got access to DX12,

if you do take the plunge into win10 avoid the "get-insider preview builds" as they are betas, a couple of builds ago my keyboard mouse and paddle stopped working fault with Xinput buggers, so i'm back on just the latest normal build which is good enough smile.gif

one option for trying and having a play with win10 is get the enterprise version https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-10-enterprise , stick it onto spare/another HDD and have a play with it see what you think and at least you got upto 90days for free, or use slmgr to reactivate wink.gif

Cities:Skylines a cracking piece of gaming from paradox software, gives your CPU and RAM a dam good workout smile.gif

i'm getting 100+ FPS @4k everything ultra and resolution scale to 150 in battlefield 4 on my 1x R9 290 PCS+, so looking forward to hearing what your 2x 980ti do, but lets get you stable first thumb.gif

How a company can advertise a product as having "advanced rma" and not keep stock to replace customers boards as needed is a little infuriating.

Hey man. I RMA'd my board after complaining to them like crazy. They sent me a completely different board (non 3.1) within 2 weeks. Do you have a 3.1?

Hey, yeah my board was a 3.1. I haven't had time to spend with them on the phone, but through email all I get is apologies and escalations of my case. Every time is we will definitely respond to you within 24-48 hours to update you on your case and a week goes by before I have to send another email.

I feel your pain. Reassembling my rig again now. No hardline, no bends. Just soft tubing, fast and easy. Done with waiting and working on this. Asus won.

Hope you get your board back soon!

please remember that it's a new everything you have, it will take a while for everything to bed in and start pulling proper frequency's thumb.gif

ramwise:

step 1: 100 strap
step 2: you might want to increase system agent voltage(that's SYSTEM AGENT) in bios anything 0.350 to 0.450, this could be higher as you running 128gb ram,
step 3: sure you have filled in manually "eventual voltage" in ram setting, and on the tweaker page put the ram voltage to auto
step 4: try to boot with the settings that work and then use Aisuite to get your other voltages into bios
step 5:you need to put ALL the info on the side of your ram including the Volts into ram setting do not pick the voltage out of your head atm, use what it says on ram, you can increase the voltage when everything is stable i.e my corsair dom plats 3000 are 1.35volts i have them running at 3200 1.38volts only a tiny ammount, if you have RAM heatsinks USE them
step 6: bf, bd,bd,bd,bd,b7,00, and all the rest of those crash numbers follow step 7 smile.gif
STEP 7: (yes in caps) System agent, system agent, system agent voltage!
8: as far as i know from previous posts in this forum that 3000 won't work, my experience my ram booted to 3000 only once(and never again, weird), so 3200 was aimed for, try adjusting System Agent smile.gif

CPU:
intel turbo boost: i'd uninstall it(get rid of it), get a hold(not a necessity but good to have) of https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24075/Intel-Extreme-Tuning-Utility-Intel-XTU-
step 1, only 100 strap to start with, you can 125 strap when you more comfortable, when turning off XMP , make sure the clk settings are back at 100 strap with init clk @100
step 2, set cores 0-7 on 36x do not use "all cores sync" instead put 36 in all the spaces i.e set cores manual
step 3: stay away from x45 atm you want to try get the thing stable @ 35
step 4: DO NOT USE XMP, DO NOT USE XMP, DO NOT USE XMP
step 6: again bf, bd,bd,bd,bd,b7,00, and all the rest of those crash numbers follow step 7 smile.gif one thing if you get "00" some would have you believe your CPU and your board is naff and needs RMA'd DO NOT LISTEN, just clear cmos or wait till the reboots and takes it out of the cycle and it pulls it's head out of it ass then back to bios for settings change
STEP 7: (yes in caps) System agent, system agent, system agent voltage!

raid:

you should see a setting in your bios on the EZbios screen that say "intel raid(on off slider)" enable on, i think it's a ctrl F11 just after you press save and reboot, setup raid through that way and it will appear in your bios in one of the sections, BE AWARE the x99e-ws firmware updates destroys RAID something to be aware of if using it

someone else might have other options on RAID issue

still a nice big HDD smile.gif
i have a 950 pro 256, 3xcorsair force 3 RAID0, 2x1tb mech drives, most of my stuff is offloaded to either RAID0 or mech drives via junctions and/or symlinks, also if you need to trim up RAID drives you need IRST version 14.8.0.1042 i don't think asus recommend it with this board, but i have never had any problem thumb.gif


regarding your FANS, look in your bios in EZbios there should be a section for fan at bottom of screen, go in there and make sure all the 4 pins fans are set to PWM mode, other than that you ccould buy a PWM spliter and control the fans as one fan off one header but you will need to set the 4 pin fans to PWM if you don't they will roar at you smile.gif, you can set fans in bios and in Aisuite to alter any speed to quiet it down,



Windows 10
make a full backup of you C: drive, download the "download tool" from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10
run it
do what it says, then what you need is windows 10 pro x64 version, not 32 bit version you'll need a 4gb pen drive(recommended), or blank DVD(do they still exist?)
wouldn't worry about windows to much both windows 10 and win7 you can use Hardlinks and windows let you offload "docs, picture, video" to mech drives i use "hardlinkshell"(recommended) to set up junctions/syslinks, also if you want get a copy(from asus) of "RAMDISK" this is useful for junctions but not recommended by me,


will have a look further into my settings see if i can find some more jucie bits for you

i found it's all about system agent voltage for the thing to work, also "sleep mode is your friend" until you get fully stable

have fun smile.gif one more thing, the board and CPU you have are for the enthusiasts(don't be disheartened if you have a/many problems or kick the thing, just start from beginning, (clear CMOS), if you wanted something easy and straight forward to setup i would recommend a consumer board with a consumer CPU smile.gif silly wink.gif

if i'm waffling please feel free to put me right smile.gif

Edited like my mood smile.gifthumb.gif

Great post sir!

Inspired me to mess around with my RAM and in process of tweaking. Kit it like yours a 3000 Dom plat's. Got them running thus far @ 3200 Mhz no issue with 1.36 volts 15-15-15-35, still tweaking. I just got a quick question however. I use Intel extreme Utility as it plots the graph for the temps while I do whatever. I notice the Default speed in there has not updated to reflect 3200 Mhz. It does for example if I use 2800 mhz so not sure whats going on there. CPU-Z seems to indicate the Ram is at 3200, just curious basically being a total newbie to OC'ing RAM.

the Default speed for memory on 5960X is 2133mhz, but mine shows different i.e 3200, so something has gone ary there with some of your settings frown.gif System Agent Voltage?( i know i go on about it) but i will say with XTU you can submit your scores to HWBOT and see what others have their settings for this board are at, and you should be able to load that setting into XTU

my machine shows: http://www.overclock.net/image/id/12154614 (better size to see)




i don't think this is a quick reply, loads of waffle thow but some of it will be rather handy as you are using same-ish memory

put them bulky corsair HEATSINKS on your RAM, they do need it under a water based cooling system


i know it's not much help but even your NB clocks are well down, try some different timings i.e use the timings in the picture 16/18/18/35 may do the trick but remember that you need to put them timings into the RAM timing settings and don't forget to scroll down in RAM timing settings to "eventual voltage"(very important) and set that to 1.35/1.36...... then on the tweaker page set the memory speed to 3200 and leave the memory voltage on auto thumb.gif

one more thing i am using BIOS version 3004 on a version 1.01 of the x99e-ws


STAY AWAY FROM XMP and MAKE SURE YOU STRAP TO 100CLKs and inital clk to 100 smile.gif
