New drivers listed for chipset, turbo 3.0, lan, and sata

Can someone help me. I'm having a hard time getting my 3200mhz memory kit to run on XMP settings. I've tried manually giving the memory 1.35v and it refuses to even post. My 2400mhz kit works fine with XMP. If anyone is using 3000+ mhz memory, could you post some screen shots of your AI tweaker setting.

Thanks so much!

I'm no expert, but having followed this thread for some time, I understand the received wisdom to be that XMP does not work at all well on these WS boards and that one should do it manually instead. I'm sure someone with more direct experience will chip in with some detail.

After all the memory advice (thanks to all who contributed), I plumped for this stuff: Novatech.co.uk: G.Skill TridentZ F4-3000C14Q-64GTZ Only red ones seem to be available over here in the UK, but that turned out to not matter when I found out that the red bit can be detached and painted. So I'm not locked into a colour scheme. (I still haven't decided on my colour scheme yet. But everything I've bought so far is black, grey or silver, so I can choose whatever accent colour I like).

Remaining to get, a CPU, a 1080, a load of WC fittings and a 1TB m.2 2280 NVMe stick.. I'm expecting my Liquid Extasy fullcover waterblock sometime in the next week or two.

I figured out my problem. The vccio on auto wasn't going to cut it for 3200mhz. I bumped it up to 1.1v and it's working fine now.

Hello all, After much anticipation I finally THOUGHT that I had finished my epic water cooling build that I had originally begun last September. This one started with a Silverstone TJ11 and concluded with a Caselabs STH10. After finishing leak testing, I attempted to boot with no success. Troubleshooting yielded no results so I RMA'd my board. Because of the slow RMA process, I chose to purchase a new board. The new board arrived two days ago, and after I put every thing back together again, discovered that the new replacement board was also faulty. I kind of expected their to be issues with my original board because during the last several months I had swapped it in and out several times between different chassis, and I knocked it over at one point. As far as my second board is concerned, this was the first time I've ever had any issues. I started with the X99E WS non USB version and switched out with the USB 3.1 version which I had been running for six months before I began my build.

Ok now for the problem I ran into with the second board. When I first received the board, it shipped with an older BIOS. During the updating process it locked up and after several failed attempts at using the flashback utility I contacted Asus support. Of course they recommended sending it back to Amazon.com where I purchased it, but I told them that I would rather work through the issue, and NOT give up. They were useless so I hung up on them. After a little bit of Internet research, I discovered my mistake with my flashback issue, and after a quick correction was able to update the BIOS. My mistake was that I did not rename the updated BIOS on the flash drive the way I was supposed to.

Ok, after I had updated the BIOS and everything ran smoothly I ran into my next issue which is where I am asking for thoughts from you people. The Motherboard refused to recognize memory slots B1 and B2. I attempted all the usual troubleshooting techniques. I swapped the memory in different slots, cleared the CMOS, and then rolled back the BIOS to a earlier version. In that order, but nothing worked. I seem to remember other people on this thread having similar issues, so any feedback would be appreciated. My second replacement motherboard will be arriving tomorrow and then I can repeat the process and hopefully this issue will be resolved.

Ok now for my second issue. Because I have a completely water cooled system using a Aquaero 6XT to control my cooling, I am not using the fan headers on the board. The board does not like that and gives me an error during boot up. That error wants me to change the fan settings. I tried a couple different things but was not successful. So for anyone who IS NOT using their CPU fan headers, what settings did you use to get rid of the error.

Again, thank you for helping.

go in to the bios under monitoring and switch the monitoring from n/a to ignore for all fan headers you are not using then go down where you can adjust from DC to PWM and set to disable for any of the fan headers you are not using, so if you are water cooling like I am all fan header monitoring set to ignore and I disabled all the power control for the headers hope this helps.

Disappearing DIMMs / "empty" slots is very common. It's how the X99-E WS responds to a memory OC that it doesn't like. You can fix it by lowering the RAM frequency and/or increasing the latencies. If you don't want to do that, you can try increasing certain voltages: System Agent by +0.100 to +0.200 offset; VCCIO to a max of around 1.100; (VTTDDR should be half your *eventual* DRAM voltage); and DRAM eventual voltage on the DRAM timing control page to 1.350.

Hope this helps.
