EDIT: This is indeed a problem and Asus has been able to replicate it. Read the following thread out to the reply on another forum from today (27July) https://forums.overclockers.co.uk/threads/samsung-960-pro-running-slow-on-x299.18787451/ This looks to affect more than just the 960 Evo

I'll drop a general question here.

Asus X299 Prime Deluxe, 7820x at 4.7 , 32gigs of DDR4-3200 stock speeds, single 1080 ti FE, 960 Evo nvme, 1tb Intel SSD on Sata 6_1.

Clean Win10 install w/ only Nvidia and Realtek drivers update, rest what Win10 picked up its self.

My problem is a perceived low read/write speed on the 960 Evo. No matter how I overclock, stock clock, voltage check, whatever CrystalMark always shows around the following whether doing the test to C: or the D: partition. I've seen other postings from other people reporting the same problem in the X299 boards but its sporadic.

I have ran stock Windows or Samsung Nvme driver, checked for newest Nvme firmware, checked with Samsung Magician and per it the stick is running at Gen3 4.0x.

I can understand new platform, immature drivers, not a 7700k ipc but this makes no sense. Has anyone run into this discrepancy?

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.

OK got something else I've noticed. HWiNFO, others only show my CPU Package Power in 1.xxx watts. Am I missing some setting somewhere or is this something the sensors are misreporting the match on? Below example was during a mild y-cruncher test.

I've got XMP disabled and manual timings in. Setting SVID to Auto, Enabled or Disabled does nothing to change what is showing. Still showing like above.

Hello

Haven't seen that issue here. 0503 on the Strix allows for 3733MHz memory speed pretty much plug n' play with capable modules.

It might have been just his board, I don't know.

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 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.

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!

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.

And I'm running 3200mhz C14 ram on it perfectly. It auto chose the XMP profile on first boot I was surprised

I have a question I posed in the skylake X thread also. Is it a limitation, feature, or something in the mobo that software reports my cores smashing around from 1.2ghz up to 4.5ghz during benchmark and stresstests?

This is 7820x with Asus X299 TUF Mark 1. Cooled with h115i and stay around 55-65 for the duration of the benchmarks. GPU is Titan X Pascal and PSU is ax1200i (so no power issues I believe).

For instance, I can't pass the 3dmark stresstest, I always get 86% and my core speeds are jumping around rather than holding constant at Turbo 2 or 3.

Firestrike Ultra gives me the correct score in line with Titan Xs, but again the core speeds fluctuate wildly.

My i7 3820, once started, would hold its turbo speeds during the demos.
