New build with some instabilities. looking for suggestions.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I recently built a new computer for myself that I plan to use for work as well as play. It's actually been a very long time since I've built a complete system from scratch, so I got to learn a lot about the latest hardware! Tonight, I finally got everything put together (details below), but after installing the OS (Fedora 21 Linux) I'm encountering some instabilities where the system would freeze completely and the motherboard (I think) starts beeping really fast. The only remedy was the reset or power switch; which seems like I'm having hardware issues?

The build consists of:

Cooler Master Cosmos II case
ASRock X99 Extreme11 motherboard
Intel i7 5960x w/ Noctua NH-D15
32GB (8x 4GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 2800MHz (PC4 2800) C16
256GB Samsung XP941 SSD (Ultra M.2, installed in 1st slot right under graphics card)
EVGA Nvidia GTX 980 Superclocked (2983)
Seasonic Platinum 1200W PSU
Installed OS: Fedora 21 Linux 64bit, using Nvidia 343.36 driver (nouveau driver blacklisted)

I initially had some issues with the GTX 980 and Linux drivers until I installed Nvidia's driver. So, there was a lot of freezes / lockups whenever an incompatible driver was being loaded. At first, I blamed all the instability to this driver issue. For example, I was still getting lockups even after Nvidia driver was installed, but *before* I blacklisted the nouveau driver which was also loading (seen in output of 'lsmod'); then i blacklisted it and it no longer loads. So, I thought maybe my problems would go away, but then just a little while ago, I got another lockup/ freeze and motherboard beeping, etc.

I don't think I have any temperature issues. GPU is 32C, here's the output of 'sensors' command:

Everything is stock/default except the memory speed setting. I changed it from "auto" to XMP profile 1.0, which is 2800MHz; I didn't think this would be a problem since that's the rating of memory I bought. There's an XMP profile 2.0, which is for 3000MHz. I tried the 3000MHz setting once, but then I started getting the freezes (which I think now is due to the wrong video driver issue mentioned above) so I switched it to 2800MHz, thinking that would be safe since that's the rating of the DIMMs i bought.

I did try to look at the "Dr Debug" thing on the ASRock motherboard, but it just spewed a bunch of codes really quickly and then booted up again. I couldn't catch all of them, but the codes I did catch, when i tried to match them with the list in the user's manual, they were not listed. A bit confused on this one?

Anyway, any thoughts on how I might be able to narrow down this problem? I want to sort this out before I start using this system for work related matters as random lockups/ freezes would cause a lot of headaches. Really want to get a sense that the system is stable first...

TIA

Hmmm... definitely seems like hardware errors? I'm seeing these messages in 'dmesg':

you tried installing another OS to see if the problem still persist. Try installing Ubunto or WIndows.

Having an X79 Extreme11 i know that the board is fussy and tricky.


Having 8 dimms means you will HAVE to downclock a level.
Try 2400 or then 2133

Thanks for the suggestion, but at this point, I don't really think it is a software issue (see above).

Looking over the dmesg output closer, I'm getting a lot of problems from 0000:00:01.1 (1969 messages from this error) and 0000:00:02.0 (28 messages from this error). Comparing this to 'lspci -v -t', I see these PCIE ports refer to:

\-[0000:00]-+-00.0 Intel Corporation Xeon E5 v3/Core i7 DMI2
+-01.0-[01]--
+-01.1-[02]----00.0 Samsung Electronics Co Ltd XP941 PCIe SSD
+-02.0-[03-06]----00.0-[04-06]--+-08.0-[05]--
| \-10.0-[06]--

I'm going to guess that the root cause has something to do with the samsung XP941 SSD? ... hmmm... well, i might try to re-seat the Ultra M.2 card tomorrow. When I installed it, it wasn't confidence inspiring since it looked like the card could wiggle side to side, but this is my first time using a Ultra M.2 slot so I had no clue...

Hey thanks for the reply! So, with your X79 Extreme11 board, did you have some issues with memory? Just wondering if I can infer that from what you're saying? I can certainly try down clocking the memory to see if that helps... just wish I had a consistent way to reproduce the issue; so far it's been rather random. If I have to down clock below 2800MHz, do you think Amazon or Newegg would take the memory back? (I'd want to get something that could actually work at their rated speed) BTW, the memory I got is on the "approved" list from ASRock, and they have it listed to work at 3000MHz - was the reason I bought it.

Although, as seen above, I'm sensing the problem might be related to the Ultra M.2 SSD barfing on the PCIe bus...

Same scenario with x79 EX11
The more memory modules you add, the slower you have to run them.

It depends if the memory is supported as an 8 dimm kit, otherwise, it is an overclock category.

I'll have a look at the chart now.
post #8 of 16
DDR4 2800 4GB Corsair CMK16GX4M4A2800C16R SS 4pcs v

Quite sure thats the kit you have.

As it's listed on that page Memory Support List you will see that it is supported at 4 sticks at 2800 only.

the V indicates OC Mode and is not guaranteed.

And as you can see from the list, there are no 8pcs kits supported.

But, they have a video of the board using 8 dimms...
post #9 of 16
In this vid the RAM is running at 2133 with 8 sticks.
post #10 of 16
Just keep the ram. it should have an XMP profile for 2133 at low timings.
