asus x99 deluxe scare

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i returned my rig, which is still my sig, because i had some issues with it. I have a new rig now with the asus x99 deluxe, and i keep hearing mixed reviews about it burning up along with burning components. Other people say it runs great, and others have had bad luck. I have corsair 2666mhz 16gb, ax1200i, 970, h100i. Then theres the legit reviews site saying it may have been the psu that fried it, so i am confused.

Im nervous about using the xmp to hit 2666mhz. Should i return this board? I just got it yesterday. Everything is running fine, and i am still downloading games so i can see how everything runs.

Keep the board, it's fine.

And get your ram to advertised speeds of 2666MHz if your IMC persists.

okay, so I have hit the XMP profile #1. I went to desktop and opened up CPU-Z to see my RAM frequency. it's at 1333mhz, but I assume 1333mhz is good because 1333+1333=2666. So, I am running the rated speed, right? I have 4x4 sticks

That's correct!

okay, cool. Glad everything is working fine right now in my comp. thanks guys.

Actually, before this post closes, when I first hit XMP for the first time, for some reason it displayed all 6 of my cores (5820k) along with the RAM frequency, and it said hit "ok" or "cancel." I hit ok assuming it was some new feature because I saw the CPu involved, but then I got a bluescreen when I entered desktop. the "irql_not_less_or_equal" BSOD. So, i thought the ram was screwing up. I went back and disabled XMP, and everytying was fine. I went back into BIOS once more to OC my ram to 2666mhz, and this time I did not see my 6cores displayed, but only the verification of the xmp profile selected. So, now everything works fine, and I played the evil within for about 10 minutes and no bsod and no bsod at desktop.

I don't know why my cpu cores displayed when selecting the profile, unless I hit the second profile on accident and that's what the second profile involves (cpu stuff along with ram). Or maybe I hit some other option on accident. Idk, but my ram is at its rated speed now according to CPU-Z.

Do you guys know what might have happened?

id ask asus directly. as far as setting the ram you could ask corsair for tips in setting it up.
