The '0503' BIOS is something floating around the interwebs. Don't use it. A co-worker did on a 299-E and he could not get any memory timing stable beyond 2133. The Flashback USB stick thing saved sanity after trying to troubleshoot with me for an hour on the phone.
It might have been just his board, I don't know.Originally Posted by Praz
Haven't seen that issue here. 0503 on the Strix allows for 3733MHz memory speed pretty much plug n' play with capable modules.
I followed what you did and sure enough it is working now. Doing a Prime95 8k FFT in place at stock settings (manual set RAM timings). That is an annoying thing the 'optimized defaults' aren't so 'default'. Thanks for the help.Originally Posted by kingofblog
If you get incorrect power readings, it means that SVID is disabled. There are no two ways around it. Reset your BIOS, disable any automatic overclock (e.g. MultiCore Enhancement, XMP, etc.), and set SVID to enabled. If it still does not work, you will just have to raise the issue with ASUS support.
For reference, you can see my post about how to run ASUS boards in stock configuration. I tested those steps on the X299-A BIOS 0402.
I'd personally choose the mobo I did, the TUF MARK 1. I had a sabertooth x79 that worked perfectly since release and I sold it for $300. I mean, that thing survived power outages, quad and triple SLI, etc. It also seems Sabertooths and the TUF line hold their value later on because they are so durable.Originally Posted by cgpyos
hi, looking for advices considering motherboard selection.
I'm going to buy 7820x, might go for 7960 in couple of years.
Now I'm choosing between
ASUS PRIME X299-A
ASUS TUF X299 MARK 1
ASUS TUF X299 MARK 2
MSI X299 TOMAHAWK
Main features i expect is: moderate overcloсking ability, reliability, at least 3200mhz ram profile support, good cooling setup.
thanks in advance!
