As for ASUS's service.. I wouldn't expect a response.. they and other manufacturers are known for that. However, if they get several hundred tickets about the same thing, that information WILL get to the right department even if they don't answer you directly.


Well not sequencing, the Next-Gen sequencers do that hardcore job. However those raw data piles requires some serious computing power to become usable for research.

When first building my rig I thought about going X99E-WS along with a Xeon. After all that is designed for workstation. However due to the cost factor of Xeon CPUs as well as registered DDR4 RAM I have to go down a tier. The TUF line up's 5 yr warranty is what finally got me into this mobo.

I like to keep data on my own PC, I only share the amount that is required by my grant. In this way when other researchers are interested in the paper published they got to contact me to get the processed data. Then I will get co-authorship. Win-Win for every one.biggrin.gif

Ok, I decided to try and push my 4.375 OC a little today. There doesn't seem to be a good reason why it shouldn't go past 35 x 125. It's not a temp issue.. I can Prime95 all I want and I max out at 80 degrees, 1.28 vcore (as shown by AISuite) and the majority of the time the temp is actually at about 75. There should be loads of overclocking headroom here. However, the moment I switch the multiplier from 35 to 36, I can't run Prime95 past about 10 seconds. So, from there you'd think more vcore would do it or perhaps increasing the load line calibration (I'm going from the X79 experience here - hope it applies to X99).

In any case, no matter what I do, once I start adjusting values, invariably I end up with a situation where the board posts but shows 0 USB devices, announces there's no keyboard plugged in and proceeds to boot, boots about 2 seconds and blue-screens with ACPI_BIOS_ERROR, reboots and just keeps repeating between that and trying to repair the Win10 installation.

One other thing.. the moment I switch from a 35 multiplier to 36, it turns on turbo mode. No switching that off without it automatically setting the multiplier back to 35.

My voltage settings are at Auto so I'm assuming my vcore or system agent aren't getting enough juice but it doesn't seem to matter if I adjust those values, I then end up with that ACPI_BIOS_ERROR.

Any thoughts as to what to try next? I'm on BIOS 2001.

Silicon Lottery is a good place for sampling the overall OC capability of a specific processor. According to this page:

http://siliconlottery.com/collections/frontpage/products/5820k45g
Quote:
As of 11/06/15, the top 74% of tested 5820Ks were able to hit 4.5GHz or greater.

Passed the ROG RealBench stress test for one hour with these settings:

45x CPU Multiplier
1.312V CPU VCORE (Or less)
1.95V CPU INPUT VOLTAGE (Or less)

So you will probably need >1.3V vcore for any serious overclocking around 4.5G and above,

As for turbo, mine turns on at 34 multiplier and turns off at 33. Weird huh?



So according to the R5E overclocking guide, try the following:

1. 1.3V vcore; 1.95V CPU Input; lv6 load line calibration; Power phase extreme
2. Aiming for 45*100, 4.5GHz first.
3. ASUS Realbench Stress test. This is by far the gold standard for testing OC stability for us ASUS users.

These 3 steps will give you a general idea whether your CPU is capable of 4.5GHz or not.
If it is stable, work on XMP profile to get desired RAM speed first. Use RealBench to get a rock solid OC first. Last step is to adjust Cache speed.


Seriously, the R5E OC guide is a great tool. Make use of it guys!

Interestingly enough my 5930K isn't even listed on that page, however I'm sure the same steps apply. I'll try your suggestions and see what happens.

Thanks for that OC guide link. Funny enough I already had it saved in favorites (among many other X99-related items) but never looked at it. I'll spend some time with it as well.

Do you happen to have a working link to RealBench 2.4 or 2.4.1? All of the ASUS links I've tried report a 'File or directory not found' error. Same with the MajorGeeks links.

BIOS 2101 - 4 x 8gb DDR4-2800mhz - XMP Profile1 (CPU/BLCK 100) I haven't OC'd past XMP but happy it's stable on this BIOS.

I did just over 89000 on the ROG Realbench and stress test 15 minutes passed: http://rog.asus.com/realbench/show_comment.php?id=10914
(One of my GPU's has been shipped back to ASUS for RMA).

It seems silicon lottery only carries 5820K and 5960X. If anything I believe the 5930K should have better OC quality as it should have better IC quality.

Link for the latest 2.42 Realbench:

Upload your score here man, I am curious to see fellow Sabertooth owners' scores.biggrin.gif

Good score!

Come on moose, just overclock a little bit. See how far it can get.

My favorite wallpaper as of now, too bad there are no 1440p or 4k version available:

I'd really like to post my results but there's some serious weirdness happening with RealBench 2.4.2. It runs fine and appears to complete. Not sure how long.. maybe 5-10 mins run time? It leaves a window in the middle of the screen.. didn't look too closely at it. The bottom right window indicates the CPU is idling. As soon as I move the mouse all 3 screens go black with the right 2 flashing.. sort of going between black and dark grey. That's it. At that point I need to power down. There doesn't appear to be a log created with the final benchmark score either so I have nothing to post.

Maybe ASUS wasn't counting on this kind of screen config.. (1080p + 4K + 1080p) and it's messing up their video routines? Who knows...
