Hi,
Memory wise needed a bios update 3600C16 wasn't working as it was on prior bios using 7900x 1503 with simply entering default timings... I had to tune quite a bit to get stable at default speed.

Kind of a weird coincidence my psu evga 1200w P2 went bad took out 9940x with it
RMA'ed both and coasting back on 99..x series compatible bios 1704 about the only thing I did before the psu.. went out.
Died at 4.2 all core on startup
Board still good got my old 7900x back and it fired right up with a back up 850 P2 psu I had.

Anyway there it is got a new 9940x and 1200 P2 still haven't oc'ed it yet.

Been having more fun with nvidia drivers more than anything
Newest is pretty bad

430.64 seems okay.

tistou77 If I understand correctly, the future Cascade Lake-X will always be on X299 (LGA 2066) ?
And the Xeon on LGA 3647 ?

And a new Rampage VI Extreme Encore motherboard, but I have not seen any difference with the Omega (except aesthetics)

Thanks

KCDC Planning to update today, I don't expect much, just hoping the CPU temps stay the same.

ThrashZone Hi,
If you ever use a U.2 port it will affect sata port availability.

Awesome, thank you so much!

I have 3 hard drives plugged into my SATA ports, and in the BIOS there is an option to run bottom two PCIex slots at x4 and that in turns disables Ports 5-8. That option is on Auto, and all the drives work.

My question is, does the M2 drive have any "lane sharing" considerations with the SATA drives? Should they be plugged into certain SATA ports and not others for maximum speed? Or are the SATA ports all 100% independent from the M2 slot.

Thanks!
