Problem with much RAM ?

Hello, hope you can give me some advice.


I have this PC:


- Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus X399 Gaming 7
- BIOS Version: F12

- CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X
- RAM: G.Skill 128GB - F4-2400C15Q2-128GFX ( Using de XMP-2400 Profile )
- OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro


I just assemble this PC and after installing all the new BIOS, OS, Drivers, Apps and Utilities all week I have beeing receiving the following errors after a medium to hard Memory intense workload:


PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL


All RAM memory related errors on BSOD.




So, my question are



- Does this Motherboard really supports and work just fine with 128 GB of RAM installed ?
- Is there a BIOS version that works better on systems with this amount of RAM better than the last F12 version ?


Hope some user with a similar configuration could comment on your experience.
Thanks a lot in advance.
Roberto.

n00bftw If you have not got any raid arrays or you have raid arrays on seperate controller card you shoukd be ok to update.

This threads as dead as the motherboard.

n00bftw If only they could up their driver game to that of Intel . I finally managed to get RaidExpert2 working again, had to reinstall chipset and raid drivers, which still didn't work, however, I rebooted a few times and it let me log in to the Raid control panel, so so so buggy it's just sad really. A wasted day trying to update the bios haha. Thank Christ I have a fully working x299 system, had no problems upgrading the bios at all on that.

On another note, is F3j susceptible to the spectre vulnerability?

Attempted to update the bios from F3j to F12e. First, I unplugged the raid array (4x WD RED - non-boot drives) I have just to be on the safe side, updated the bios, changed the settings in the bios back to the original F3j settings and then plugged the raid array back in (FYI, the boot drive is a separate NVME drive). Low and behold the system will no longer boot, however, if I unplug the RAID array the system boots :/, I can then plug the raid array back in while logged into windows and it shows and runs perfectly but won't boot with it attached, ***? Anyhow, I reverted back to F3j and everything works as it should apart from RAIDExpert Web UI not connecting ahhhhhhhhhhhh
I was also tempted to update the CPU to a 2950x and BIOS to F12e, but considering the effort to leave the system 120% flawless, I retreated and I will keep it as it is for now, too many bugs and mysterious errors for this platform when you try to change things around.

x7007 Can anyone test their Timer Resolution every restart with the F12e ....

There is something weird with this thing ... it randomly stuck on 0.4988 sometimes no matter what you are doing . or it goes to 2.988 and 0.9880 and never 0.4988 . I mean it suppose to be like 15.625 ms when idle or no drivers/software request lower. and when Video/Sound then it should try the 0.4988 or 0.9880 when needed.

but it never does that when directly after reboot I run the program and it stuck forever on 0.4988 ms no matter what I do .

I'm using Intelligent Staby list cleaner software . it shows the current timer there . I tried other softwares that shows the timer and they all show the same thing..

Anyone has that issue ?? I am 100% sure no one even checked that

x7007 Hello , anyone here ??

Did anyone to F11 because of the security issues ?
04-07-2019 02:54 PM
x7007 Do we need the F11 Firmware for Spectre protection ? because with F3G we don't have it.

anything else than F3G is weird, making many bios settings espically the Memory thing to disappear .. I don't understand why, and the performance is cut by 20%-30%

Maybe this bios has issue with this protection causing this issues in windows ? anyone thought about that ?

Using windows 10 x64 1809 newest update

www.grc.com/inspectre.htm

can anyone with 1950x with F11 check with inspectre program . My AMD shows Spectre Disabled which is not good.

x7007 Hey , can someone check their USBXHCI.sys DPC/ISR ?


It seems high on my computer, I want to know if it's gigabyte thing or just Threadripper thing, or just OS thing. I need to put everything on the table to fix this issue.
On my Asus G751JT laptop I have 5-10ms max . so it must be something



To check it you need to download this

https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=526740

Only install the Performance Toolkit, cancel all other checks.

Search in START > Windows Performance Recorder > Select CPU usage, Pool Heap , VirtualAlloc usage , Desktop composition activity ,WDF Driver Activity Then Start

Move your mouse fast and non stop and give it 10 sec .

After it finish you will have option to Save it and then open it with WPA , Open it.

Then go to Computation > Click on the arrow to show the other options, then double click on DPC/ISR Duration by Module . Then you see USBXHCI.sys , right click on it and Filter to Selection . post the screenshot or tell us if it's above 100-200 ms like in the screenshot.

Please anyone ?
