So the issues I had with the Deluxe II started with hangs on boot. At first I wrote it off as needing to update the BIOS. I then updated the BIOS and installed all of the necessary drivers, which did not help.

The boot issues were very odd. Sometimes it wouldn't boot at all and hang on a blank screen (error light on the board pointed to my video card being the problem). Sometimes it would boot, but it would take over a minute to do so. Sometimes it would boot loop, and finally, sometimes it would boot all the way to the Windows login screen and then reboot before I could enter my password. I did try reseating the video card as well as moving the RAM around and neither helped. I also tried updating the BIOS again which did not help.

I then started messing with the RGB lighting, and the PCH would not change color no matter what I did. It was stuck at the default color which meant it was kind of pointless to have RGB at all since the default color was red. Sometimes the PCIe slots would also not respond to the changes I made inside the Aura software. Also, I didn't realize this before I bought the board, but the lighting stays on even when the computer is off. The only way to turn the lighting off was to flip the switch on my power supply. The issue with that is the motherboard would not save your color selections after turning off the power supply. Incredibly frustrating when this board cost over $400.

I contacted Asus support and explained my issues and what I had already tried to do to remedy the problems I was having. They sent back a message asking me to try what I just told them I had. They weren't asking me to try it AGAIN- their response read as though they had not even read what I told them about my troubleshooting. Upon explaining to them I had already done what they suggested multiple times, they replied with a link to a BIOS to download and asked that I try that. Upon opening the link, it wasn't even the correct BIOS for my board!

At that point, I just gave up and sent the board back for a refund. It's a shame because it was a very feature rich board with tons of accessories. I wish I could have gotten the issues fixed, but after they suggested I update the BIOS with a BIOS from a different board, I lost it. I thought to myself that even if I RMA this board and get a functional one, do I want to have a $400+ motherboard that comes with some of the worst support I had ever encountered.

I ordered the Gaming Pro Carbon, and it has run flawlessly from day one.

When I shut down the computer, My Deluxe II has still lightning working .
To have lightning off , I have also to Turn off the switch of the powerful supply...

This is not an issue .....

Cute little pup, he looks like a larrican.
We're getting ours used to a crate too, she went well the first night, she's now learnt to whinge if she needs to go to the toilet, though Pugs are hard to toilet train, they are the type of dog if they don't wanna do it they won't...lol

Finally done the stress testing, quiet happy with 4.2Ghz@1.276v core and 3.4Ghz cache, I tried lower voltages but no go.

6950X has arrived, let's hope it's a good one.

4.4 isn't happening at 30C water I don't think, Realbench next biggrin.gif

4.3 at 1.28v on the 10 core, I would be happy with this. I'll be working at similar temperatures also

I am more than happy with it. For comparison, this Broadwell fares better than my first 5960X, I dug out a screenshot: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Did you pop in your 6950X yet? biggrin.gif

AI-suite is not safe at all.

I have my Vcore at 1,38v. Everything stable and fine. I decided I wanted to try to lower my System Agent offset a tad with AI-suite, which was all I touched in it. BAM: Vcore flew up to 1.57, by lowering the System Agent Offset from 0.300 to 0.280... What the heck...


I killed the power. Went into BIOS, set System Agent Offset to 0.280 manually. Everything is OK now.

I never said it was an issue. I stated that I did not realize the lighting worked in that way before I purchased it. Also, I pointed it out because it is a $400 motherboard that should be able to retain it's color selection after a loss of power. It is just a bad implementation of RGB.rolleyes.gif

I would say that I am probably just the unlucky one. mad.gif I have not seen anyone else have issues with that board.

EDIT: Sorry for not combining my two posts guys!! It's too early. sleepysmiley03.gif

Not till this evening, have ordered some Thermal Grizzly also, but may go without and use EK's offering. Never had any issues with their stuff.
