Not that I'm against tuning RAM manually, but I am using XMP profile currently.... Guess I wait on that update then.

I would like some LED strips, but I cannot afford the shipping cost from Cablemods. What kind of led strips can I buy? Would any 5050 RGB strips work?

Also, one of Linus's videos mentioned the need for Cablemods's adapter because the Asus Aura doesn't output the correct color without it. Is this true?

I bought these, they come with one adapter that works with Aura (both strips can connect to it). If you want one strip in each of the motherboard's headers, you'd have to buy a 2nd adapter: http://a.co/fygrBzH

Very happy with them so far.

These ones work perfectly with the Asus motherboard? This is great! Thank you!

Edit: The reviews mentioned an RGB strip with actual white LEDs by Phanteks, but I can't find them.

This is the strips I linked in my machine. (crappy cell phone video)

I cut the rubber and some of the metal bracket away, too. It was going to hit those ICs it looked like to me.

Noctual NH-D14 fits and works good. I'm sure it won't fit in all mITX cases, it fits in the Fractal Nano S - said to be largish for mITX, but once you install a dual radiator loop in there, it's anything but roomy.

I've recently purchase a Maximus IX "Hero" board and I've been seeing some oddities with it. Before I return the board for a replacement, I thought I might post here to see if they are common issues with the board or not.

The board has the most recent BIOS/UEFI as of April 23rd 2017 (0906). I've reset the CMOS a few times in trying to clear up some of these issues. An intel i7-7700k is installed alongside 4 sticks of Corsair LPX 3200 8GB DDR4 (for a total of 32GB.) The only mass storage device is a samsung 960 EVO m.2. I also have a few assorted fans, USB keyboard, USB mouse, GTX 1070 video card, power supply (EVGA 650 G2), and ethernet cable attached to the board.

1. With a cleared CMOS, I'll go into the BIOS and change it to use XMP. At the prompt for the asus multi-core enhancement, I select "No" (so that the board uses intel's stock settings for turbo speeds.) With only these changes, after I boot the machine, I've noticed that the VID reported by both HWInfo and HWMonitor will be locked to a specific voltage for a specific frequency. For example, if my processor has 4 cores at 4400, the VID is 1.17. This is the same REGARDLESS OF LOAD. I could be running 8 threads of linpack, or just have 4 threads churning no-ops. Those utilities do show a (often massive) difference in "package power" for those different loads, but vcore and vid are constant.

(#1 goes away if I start overclocking... I haven't narrowed it down, but one of the several changes in BIOS when overclocking allows the VID to change based on load even at the same frequencies.)

2. On the board itself, there's that little square LED segment thing that shows a 2 digit numeric representation of the boot process. ("Q-Code LED") Within BIOS, there's a setting ("Q-Code LED Function") to allow this to display ONLY the POST codes ("POST Code Only") or to display the CPU temp after the POST is completed ("Auto".) When I have this set to "Auto", the LED does show the processor temp (or within 1-2 degrees of the processor temp) but eventually the LED gets "stuck" showing 30, and nothing but "30." I can run 8 threads of linpack and drive the cores to 70C, and this still shows "30."

I considered that "30" might be some kind of BIOS code, but referring to the table in the manual shows that "30" is a ACPI code for "System is waking up from the S3 sleep state." Obviously, if I'm running linpack, it's not in a sleep state anymore... So, either the temp is getting stuck at 30, or the LED is getting stuck with the "wake from S3" code and never going back to showing the processor temp.


3. The BIOS has the ability to store and load multiple BIOS setting "profiles." If I save anything to profile #1, when I try to load those settings, the entire motherboard locks up immediately upon confirming the action. If I save to a different profile number, the profile loads properly. (In order to repeat this after a CMOS reset, I obviously have to first make some BIOS changes and save those settings to the first profile.)


Are others having the same issues?

Thanks
Gary

Going to need some help and clarification here. But to preface everything:

I currently have a 7700K and a Maximus IX Hero which I'm testing the waters in overclocking it @ 4.8GHz.

Currently, I have my Vcore set in the BIOS to 1.25V (adaptive voltage). With LLC = 3 setting, I am getting a Vcore of 1.248V @ full load when running stress testing programs like RealBench and the custom x264 stability test.

I'd like to note that I passed the x264 stability test overnight with these settings, which seemed pretty good. I tried RealBench for a little bit and it was able to pass an hour (didn't have time to do more).

But during gaming, what I'm finding is that when I'm playing games like BF1 and Overwatch, my Vcore is actually hovering at around 1.216V. I highly doubt this is enough @ 4.8GHz, and BF1 crashed on me.

After this crash, I immediately set my LLC = 4. I'm now getting 1.264V at full load when running RealBench and the custom x264 stability test. BF1 and Overwatch are now running my Vcore at 1.232V. I haven't had time to test to see if I crash yet again, but does anyone know why this is happening?

I'm afraid that I've tested stability @ 1.25V and that seemed OK. But when I actually use my PC for it's primary purpose (gaming), it's running at 1.232V, which is under what I stress tested the overclock for. I heard that because Realbench and x264 uses AVX, that there is a little bit of voltage boost that happens for AVX workloads. Is this true?

If so, what can I do here. I want to have atleast 1.25Vcore anytime my clock is at 4.8GHz, AVX or no AVX workload. I also still want to use an adaptive voltage instead of setting it to manual. Let me know if you guys can help.

I'm running a IX Hero and have a AVX offset of 2 in the BIOS, which brings it back to 4.5Ghz.
So give that a try with the LLC of 3, then try running Realbench/x264/x265 again.

I'm pretty much running exactly the same settings as you for 24/7 (till I delid).
