Hey guys - for those of you who take the "Don't taze me bro" approach to stability testing your CPU, this x264 version when run with 1.5x the CPU's thread count (so, 54 threads for a 7980XE) for 20 loops gives a pretty good assessment of stability, especially when combined with HCi memtest/GSAT to test the ram and cache (HCi). With a stock TIMed (pigeon pooped) CPU, at 4.4 (AVX -2) with 1.175V vcore, 1.165V cache (30X) and 1.79V VCCIN , LLC 5 on the APEX, (ambient water cooled) Max core T was 81C, package was 85C with a peak of 450W system power (SIV64 - idle is 40W). So far, after this with continuous gaming (by a nephew invasion) today (~5 hours - how they do that, IDK) no problems at all. This version uses AVX and AVX2, no AVX512.

So - x264V2 run at 1.5x actual thread count seems to be a reasonable way to establish stability without tazing the CPU. smile.gif

When I built my 4770K I used memtest86 on a boot cd to test each ram stick individually and each ram slot. It was recommended to do this since back then since Windows based applications testing all the ram and slots at the same time would not be able to pick up errors on individual sticks or slots. Is this still a good idea to do on a new build.

Thanks for the above suggestion regarding x264v2.

Regarding HCi Memtest, I have never used this before, does this just do a test and then stop or do you need to let it run for XX time and then manually stop it.

What is GSAT? I did a google search and only came up with stock price information on a company that had nothing to do with stress testing a overclocked PC.

Hi,
Well my x299 tuf mark 2 died
Got a bent pin on it frown.gif
Luckily had the two year in store warranty and they were kind enough to give a full credit on the board thumb.gif

Used it to upgrade it to a x299 prime deluxe
No apex 6 in stock anywhere for micro center so prime deluxe was it
Otherwise all they had was a dust collector mark 1.

This is all dependent on who you are asking and what you are asking them. ASUS says no VROC period without a key. All Intel white papers are not aimed at X299. Those same white papers also say VROC supports select third party SSDs yet intel and ASUS has stated that on X299 only intel drives are supported. The table that people keep referring to is for c600 enterprise boards and Xeon processors. If you have something that is to the contrary that specifically addresses X299 boards published by intel or ASUS please be so kind as to share.

^This...

...a marketing faux pas? And even if it is, does it mean consumers might stop buying ASUS and/or Intel (or even other oems') products? Probably not, but who knows how much of an impact the situation will end up having. X299 has obviously been enough of a cluster[favorite expletive here] as it is.

Maybe down the road after the introduction of the next generation CPUs, PCIe 4.0, DDR5 dimms, etc., things will get better. Or maybe not. Seems like the faster new technology is introduced, the less oems, aibs, and supporting hardware and software manufacturers/producers are able to keep pace with it.

Me, I'm having trouble just keeping up with exploding lithium batteries (I've got one here that is probably on its way to doing that, in a now splitting, three-year-old iPhone 6; just noted it today, and need to drive 120 miles to an "Apple Bar" to get it replaced).

Gotta love marketers... but please don't mind me, I'm just venting.

I bought two of this GSkill ram kit
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820232306
because I wanted the C15 @ 3600 and four sticks of DDR4 so I could run quad channel on my R6E. I have read in the ROG forums today that mixing kits can cause stability problems even if the kits are the same part number. Is this really a concern because if it is I can get a refund on the two kits and I will just have to settle for a kit that is C16 @ 3600.

If I need a quad kit then I have a choice between these two. Is there any reason to choose the GSkill over the Corsair kit?

because I wanted the C15 @ 3600 and four sticks of DDR4 so I could run quad channel on my R6E. I have read in the ROG forums today that mixing kits can cause stability problems even if the kits are the same part number. Is this really a concern because if it is I can get a refund on the two kits and I will just have to settle for a kit that is C16 @ 3600.

If I need a quad kit then I have a choice between these two. Is there any reason to choose the GSkill over the Corsair kit?

Hello

No guarantees but they work fine here although manual tuning may be needed.

Super Praz! I guess I will keep them and give them a try. Hopefully they work out because I really wanted that C15 ram. The four serial numbers are sequential so hopefully that is in my favor.

Can you give me a link to the post that your picture is in so I can get a better look?
