I feel like having the strix x99 will just make me feel as though I'm waiting for something to go wrong.

It's true what people say, it really does leave a sour taste in your mouth. I know most people probably have great experiences but this has really put me off Asus motherboards.

I know what you mean. I'm hoping it can't be all boards. I've built my own PCs for years and used Asus a lot but this is the first time I've ever had anything like this happen. This is the first time I've built a high end machine though and spending this much money only to have it fry does leave a very sour taste as you say.

The fan headers that worked were the two CPU ones and H_AMP_FAN header. The chassis and water pump ones don't work, but I'm not 100% sure if they did work without it posting anyway, I'd presume this is the case as it's the same on both boards.

If I put the new CPU in tomorrow and it's the same I dunno what I'm gonna do lol.

Hi all,

New CPU is here and I've installed and powered up and code is now 53 (which is expected because I have no RAM in yet). So it was definitely the CPU that fried.

I was going to install new CPU in old board and check if the board was still fine but I don't want it anywhere near the new CPU tongue.gif

Anyway, I'm keeping the new Asus Strix x99 board and installing everything. As I mentioned last time it was fine for around a month or two without any issues but if anything happens again I'll post here. Fingers crossed you won't hear from me!

Hope you all manage to get yours sorted!

BTW how many people with killed CPUs allowed board to overclock CPU for them?

Mine never felt the touch of auto overclock. I ruled that out quickly for me.

What do you mean by 6?

I mean I killed 2 separate CPUs in 2 separate systems on 2 separate boards thinking it was my wall outlet delivering crap power way outside the 120v spec. Killed 2 more on a different circuit after replacing the CPUs and PSUs. Killed 2 more after replacing the 2 CPUs again and getting the motherboard supposedly "repaired" by ASUS and testing all outlets with a multimeter, also testing the PSU (but for safety i tried it at someone elses house, which wouldnt matter i have other computers running in this environment not having the same issue so the condition is not the cause).

My asus board sets 1.55V Vcore for one of the auto overclock under water settings. Auto OC is scary.

Full range PSU would deliver 12 V even when your power is 150V instead of 120V. I remember when I measured 179V on my outlet instead of 238V. PSU didn't give a damn, I discovered about it because lights suddenly dimmed considerably, then street lamps in half of the city went dark along with the rest of the power. They repaired it 6 hours later. But PC worked flawlessly. If power in outlet is in correct range for PSU, some can accept from 100V to 260V, and will not give a damn. As long as power is going from correct hole in outlet, and is moving to correct hole.

6 CPUs is drastic number.
