Thank you,

I could be wrong never tried 32GB DIMMs (don't have any) but I thought the latest BETA BIOS for this board, 0801 (stock or the modified one) added support for 128GB but with 16GB modules in all 8 slots. Basically adding 16GB module support.

Whelp, I've moved on to AMD 3900x on Crosshair VI Extreme.

If anyone's interested in a R4BE that doesn't rando-black screen + EK waterblock (original heat sinks in box, unmodified) shoot me a PM with an offer.
I would've been interested about 4 months ago but I am now also upgrading. I am looking at the 3950x on an x570 board with WiFi...lol. It's either that or the 10900k on the Asus Rog Maximus 12 (or comparable board). It all depends on what is available when I get the funds.....lol.

Madmaxneo So what is the latest on the best thermal paste out there now? I have been using the Grizzly Kryonaut for a couple years now and it works pretty well. Is there anything supposedly better now?

tcclaviger I feel ya Madmaxneo, it's very frustrating. I, thankfully, have not ever had a scenario like that I can't track down.

I have had weird scenarios where the board hangs at code 34. Unplug all but 1 monitor, it boots, plug them back in, all is fine....

Very weird stuff lol.

Did some for funsies disk work, how fast is a Primocached NVME drive on overclocked X79?! This fast, thus why I said the SN 550 was "fast enough", with cache acceleration I'm almost never hitting the drive directly. PCIE 4.0 NVME..... whatever.

I am pretty confident the black screens are an issue with the board. The other systems I have put together over the years that also have a nvidia graphics card don't have any issues. Windows does just fine on those machines and the other computers I have within my home. Plus from what I understand when I read into it a few years ago I found out the black screens I've been experiencing was somewhat common in this specific board when it first came out (but not everyone experienced it). The black screen I and a few others experience with this same board is a little different than many of the others reported elsewhere. The black screens on mine happen within seconds after my system completely freezes up. Sometimes the sound from videos or my music will still play in the background where other times it goes into this crazy annoying repeated stutter (or it goes completely mute).
There is one thing I haven't been able to replace yet and that is the power supply for my AOC monitor. I found in the past when I moved my desk out and was rearranging the cables in the back that the black screen effect happened twice when I hit that PSU. I can't duplicate it every time and I have not been able to find a replacement PSU for the monitor. I did order one that I thought was going to work as it had all the same specs as this one but when I got it the connector did not fit in the connection on the monitor. I doubt that would cause my issue though cause my system freezes completely before my screens go black.
