[TPU] ASUS X99M-WS Micro-ATX Motherboard Pictured - Page 43  

post #421 of 431
I'm really torn between this board and the Asrock Fatal1ty X99M. I've been using Asus boards for a long time and like their bios design more (though Asrock boards have also been mighty fine) but having only x2 M.2 slot is a real bummer.

Then again, I could run 3-way CF on Asus board with Fury cards as the third slot is also PCI-E gen 3 slot. Asrock only has gen2 slot thinking.gif

Maybe i'll just grab this board for my next build... still waiting for a M-ATX board which has 4 PCI-E gen3 slots for ultimate M-ATX Quad-Fire rig.

I just picked this board up open box today from newegg will call, it's so purty.

Hello!

Just Got this board and a 5820k...

So far its looking great, but can anyone help me with the settings for a good OC?

I had an x99 MSI and ASROCK, but this Asus have new parameters that where not on that boards...

Thanks in advance...

Every 5820k has a different overclock, some chips will be closer to the center of the silicon wafer resulting in a nicer overclock, some will be closer to the edge resulting in a worse overclock. You kinda have to tune it in on your own.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply!

So far i have been able to OC the CPU to:

3.5ghz the Cache
4.3ghz the CPU

1.150v on the CPU

Tested at Cinebench and RealBench and it was pretty Stable, but temperatures where on the high side... 60c+ on a custom AIO cooling...

What can i expect?

Best Regards...

LPC

Wait, so the X99M Killer can't do tri-fire? I have one, and a tri-fire set-up was something that I had considered would be amusing to try and cram into my TJ-08, is it because the 3rd x4 slot is gen 2? I was under the impression it was gen 3....

4.5 on 1.15? Wow you got a nice chip, 60° on a 4.5 is real nice. Yeah man i like to keep my voltages low, the closer to the stock voltage the better off my chip will fare in the long run. You could probably hit 5.0ghz without pushing 72° on load

Hi!

Nop 4.3ghz

I will try to slow go up, to where is a safe voltage on the cpu?

If I am correct once you hit 1.4v, you can start to damage your cpu and vrms. That's why I like to keep my voltage as close to stock as possible.

I See...

At auto my voltage was 1.00v is the normal stock voltage?
