Man you just don't like new stuff dont ya?biggrin.gif

I wonder how long it took you to finally let go of your last system. While you are the lucky one who didn't had problem with AISuite 1.0.0.96, my system was crashing left and right with that version. Not just me though, check ROG forum and there are lots of other users who had problem with the 1.0.0.96.

People have been having mixed results on 2101. Some see improvement, while others lost their XMP settings stability. I would not recommend you updating at this moment. Your system is running perfectly and there ARE bad results, so no.

Ya no serious issues at least. I've run AI Suites on other boards and it's never been a straightforward product. I remember situations where you couldn't even install it. Just wouldn't run at all. With this board the AISuite which shipped wouldn't run on Win10 so I downloaded a new one, then ran into other issues (some security properties had to be changed). Had to google that. A general pain. In the end, thanks to some helpful posts from others it's working.

As for the previous system (the Rampage IV Black), I had that for 2 years. That's a record for me. Usually I do a new build each year but I just wasn't up for it the Christmas before.. had stuff to deal with and building a machine was really nowhere close to the top of my list of priorities.

Funny enough, I was able to sell my old X79 system recently and get a decent amount of money for it so that helped offset the cost of this X99 build.

Appreciate that, thanks. Unless I got 100% positive feedback I was leaning toward staying on 2001. Like I said, with the exception of that soft boot problem I'm content.

I do wonder, though, why many people seem to be topping out at around that 4.3 GHz mark. I mean, my 4930K was also a 6-core chip and I had it OC'd at 4.7. Ya, I know different platform, ram, architecture... still, I like to keep improving... going backward is a bit of a downer.

If you have deep pockets, I mean really deep pockets, I suggest you try this:

8 core 16 threads at 4.6GHz, that is pretty insane.


Good thing is we have Broadwell-E to look forward to. 14nm and improved IPC, hmm so sweet.

Love new stuff, I upgrade my system 2-3 years, most recently Rampage Extreme (qx9770) to Z87, to x99 & Mini-ITX Z170. I upgrade graphics cards when a new directx platform arrives because I typically have 2-3 card builds and don't suffer performance issues. I don't upgrade software unless it does something to fix a problem or delivers a new feature. I certainly don't install updates that remove functionality or provides capabilities that don't work, and this is what the Z170 Sabertooth's version does to the x99. Name one documented feature or fix that this new AISuite3 delivers and I'll be more interested. I can name a feature lost... USB Charger +.

AISuite3 involves sensors, fan control, and electrical adjustments. It's not a simple product, so I am not surprised if people find themselves needing to format their drive and start over. I bet the majority of problems come from enthusiasts running too many apps that can conflict, and in this case I blame the system builder not the manufacturer. I get that it's possible people who are experiencing issues may find solace with the update, but they are specific cases, and undocumented in general because you can't account for their system stability or software deployment state.

I do like the Tuf CPU-Z! thumb.gif

Ya I'm crazy but not that crazy. I never go for the top CPU. The real-life benefits are small given what I do with the computer. 6 cores is already more than I need. The rest of it I can justify. The video cards, the NVMe drive, etc, but 2 extra cores and 300 mhz, not so much.

I like that web page though. Now there's someone who knows a good business opportunity.

I'm curious where Broadwell-E goes. I'm more interested to see AMD's Zen. If they finally come out with something to compete with the I7 there may be a hope for lower Intel prices.

For the hell of it, a whilr ago I tried AISuite for the Rampage V Extreme on my Sabertooth, just to see what would happen. I really wanted to see what DIP did in terms of their automated overclocking. It kinda started working, rebooted a few times and then at some point just failed to run the stress test so it just kept bumping up the multiplier forever. Too bad because until that point it actually looked promising. The fact that it installed and opened was impressive enough.

i cannot agree with you on this. My system was brand new with no other apps instead beside intel drivers and the AISuite it self. Yet it managed to crash my windows 10 constantly. Removing it solved all of the crashing.
