How did you spot the issue with the NIC? Can the NIC be run only with the Killer drivers? I see it using like 100 megs of ram, but not gigs. See photo I attached as an example.
Also how did you test for a dead fan header? I am trying to figure out if I have a bad RGB header, but unsure how to test it.
Where is MCE in the bios? And what type of OC's have you gotten?
The NIC issue I spotted when i was in task manager after a fresh win install and all new OS drivers installed and noticed my @ idle on desktop ram usage was over 5Gb!! so i back tracked and found that it was 100% the KILLER NIC BS software, so i just disabled it in the uefi and proceed to use the rather excellent Intel WIFI instead. apparently this is a known issue and still no fix on the horizon.
The way i stumbled across the dead fan header was I was attaching a case fan to 1 of the 2 fan headers near the dual 8pins CPU power plugs and noticed I had no rgb and the fan wasnt spinning, so I thought it may be controlled via uefi, so I went into the uefi and gave everything a solid look over again, to no avail. While pc was still on, I removed my side panel and just removed the fan plug into the next adjacent header and all was fine. So confirmed, DEAD FAN HEADER. Also have a completely dead usb 3.0 header, which is also confirmed..... weirdly enough tho, the board OC's pretty easily, and tho ports dont bother me enough to be worried about it, plus going thru an RMA is a PITA, so im content with what i have currently.
Would you recommend me trying out this BIOS since I am in fact using 4x8gb sticks of "B" die ram? currently operating @ 3635Mhz CL16
What do you mean by MCE? if you mean multi core enhancement..... I just use all core OC settings. Am i missing something?
and my current OC is rather simple @ the following
101Bclk x50 multi 9900k @ 5.05ghz 1.285v
LLC set to an even plain (Which seems to hold vcore steady, will test with DMM today)
4x8gb B die gskill @ 3635Mhz 16/16/16/35 38tFAW 2T Command 1.38vdimm
Everything under very highend water
Also, looking at your uploaded picture, 25% of your memory is currently in use. Unless im missing something that you are using in the background, that killer software is just a huge memory leak! Disable that **** and use the wifi if you can... Hell, even my "to desktop cold boots" are faster with that disabled. Its a POS NIC, and i wish MSI built this board with the tried and true Intel NIC
And yes, I have SPENT DAYSSSSSSSS trying to get the audio software to work so I can adjust the sound settings, but I can get ANY OF THE SOFTWARE to load, either the realtek sound app or the nahimic software. The base sound driver loads no issue, just none of the controlable software...... Known issue! Ive spent litterly days trying different audio drivers so those 2 apps will work, and nothing. and MSI uploaded a new audio driver a few days ago for this board, but even tho the driver on the download page says a new version, once you open up the download, its the same old FU*King driver that is from september.
