Did you have any progress in eliminating the system freezes?

Here is probably one of the best guides I've seen so far online that explains all the settings and what may be best for OCing. I say "what may be" because not all CPUs are created equal.
https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...r-Overclocking
In that guide there two essential settings that most definitely need to change for OCing, make sure you disable both the PCIe and CPU Spread Spectrum settings.
Read through all the stuff in there and come back with questions and I can help a little (others could probably help more). But it really comes down to trial and error in finding the best settings for your system.

Call it laziness, but it would be more of a pain in the ass to remove it than to just leave it in and deal with the daily reposting. One thing I can tell you is that I'll NEVER get another Rosewill again. Once I start my new build soon, I'll finally swap it out for something more reliable.
The one and only Rosewill PSU I bought blew up on me... less than a year of use. Rosewill is earning a pretty bad reputation...

Spoiler!

I was thinking of swapping the 4 sticks into the other RAM slots just to eliminate the RAM slots as whats causing my random lockups - I think i have them in the recommended slots in the Manual.

Another thing I wanted to try was perhaps taking out the m.2 drive and silverstone PCIE adaptor card and reinstalling windows 10 on a normal SSD just to eliminate this side of things.

If i cant find this bug (which i am starting to think its the motherboard) looking at new board/cpu - was considering the ASUS ROG Maximus XI Extreme with i7 8700k and a ASUS Strix 2070. I have 32GB Corsair DDR4 RAM from another PC already and was going to reuse my SSD and m.2 drive and CPU cooler and case

any thoughts on this combination ? - I manly game and do some video editing. Currently I have the RAMPAGE IV Black edition 32GB Corsair DDR3, i7 4930k CPU and GTX 980 graphics card

skupples Gorgeous

I'm quite looking forward to blowing my first few paychecks @ this new gig on another dream machine. It's about time. This 9700k & 1080ti is one of the most disappointing upgrades I've ever made.

NVLink titans, x299, etc
