Hey fellas - I hope that this is the right place to post for these questions. I recently came across a 9990XE and I paired it up with the Rampage Extreme Omega as I figured it was one of the only few X299 boards with sufficient VRM.
So far, I've got everything basically stock, except XMP enabled on the G.Skill 3600CL16 kit. I've also gone around the BIOS and tried to increase CPU/VRM power limits anywhere I can find them. Current BIOS settings are attached. Version is 702.
I'm able to boost to 5.0Ghz all-core (stock) under most regular workloads, like 3dmark, gaming, etc.
The chip is stable under regular use, but I've run across a few issues:
- Prime95 Small FFTs (AVX and non-AVX), I get maxed out at 3.8Ghz all cores - temps are more than fine at 60-70C here
- IntelBurnTest same thing
- Cinebench R15 and R20 gets to 5Ghz all-core, and then near the end of the test I get BSOD with DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION. Temps are nearing TJMax here.
Is there anything else in the BIOS I may be missing? I can't tell exactly what kind of throttling I am experiencing here.
