    Asus Crosshair VIII Hero Crashing

    Oh wow... I swear those specifications didn't exist when I bought the chip (or I'm blind and totally overlooked them). Interesting it was running stable for over a year before starting to give issues, guess silicon does degrade over time I might see how it behaves at 2933mhz.

    Asus Crosshair VIII Hero Crashing

    Yeah, I could always "borrow" the two sticks of G.Skill 3600Mhz RAM out of my girlfriend's gaming rig for diagnostics. If it is the memory controller though I think the CPU has a 3-year AMD warranty on it...

    Asus Crosshair VIII Hero Crashing

    Yeah, I should have said that I already checked the event log and there were zero errors when the crashes happened. Windows didn't even notice... After discussing this on another forum I got rid of the DOCP (XMP) memory profile and I'm just running the memory under the automatic settings. That...

    Asus Crosshair VIII Hero Crashing

    Also, when crashing... The screen will sometimes retain the last image, and sometimes go black, it's pretty random. The power button locks up, holding it for longer than 10s won't turn the power off to the PC. The reset button stops working (yes they are wired up correctly).

    Asus Crosshair VIII Hero Crashing

    So my PC has started behaving pretty badly, and just wanted to make sure I'm not being an idiot in thinking it's the mobo at fault... CPU is a 3950x (Cooled by a 360 AIO) Mem is 32GB (4x 8GB Corsair Vengence RGB 3600) Mobo BIOS is up to date, and running default settings - I've tried with and...

    *** NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3090 SERIES STOCK SITUATION - NO COMPETITOR DISCUSSION ***

    Yeah, I only got my 3950X in April... Not a fan of the chip tbh, they're a bit of a con... They have one fantastically binned CCD that has at least one core that will do the promised boost speed, and the second CCD is a steaming pile that can barely boost... Yet you're paying more than 2x the...

    *** NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3090 SERIES STOCK SITUATION - NO COMPETITOR DISCUSSION ***

    I just cancelled (Asus 3090 Strix non-oc)... Don't blame OCUK at all, this decision lies totally with Nvidia's poor planning and poor launch, and Asus being slow and unclear with their OC/Non-OC skews of the same card. Going to buy some Big Navi from OCUK on the launch, and move from a 3950X...

    *** NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3090 SERIES STOCK SITUATION - NO COMPETITOR DISCUSSION ***

    Well, the rumour was that Asus held every single Strix card to unsolder the SP Caps, and solder on MLCC arrays after Cap Gate. It's why the 3080 Strix was late to the party, and they probably didn't start on the 3090s till a good number of 3080s were done. It's also probably why they haven't...

    Or people cancelling, ordering Radeon 6xxx cards, and getting equally annoyed they're in a queue :D

    Finally managed to talk to someone about my queue position messup and I've been assured I've been added to a "corrections list"... But yeah, I learned the hard way how cagey Asus can be during delays when the X470-I Gaming motherboard got held up after the X470 / Ryzen 3xxx launch. They can be...

    My favourite spreadsheet is this: Unofficial spreadsheet is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nqzTL2tEIl5FLQqZLdTeJ2iLAOBR-yVURCgbsTn5LSU Add new data here: https://forms.gle/4WKHGJqWht6MYMnz8 Needs more data though tbh.
