  1. This thing looks sweet AF.
  2. "feature" is a generous word. I'd say pull the plug, but I've had to repair a corrupted BIOS ROM before, and it was less fun than waiting an inordinate amount of time.
  3. How did you update it? USB BIOS Flashback is the easiest way. Download the .cap, put in root of FAT32 formatted USB, plug into the designated port on the I/O and hold down the flashback button until it starts flashing, when it's done flashing it's done.
  4. AI Suite 3 is cancer. Ruined all my fan profiles on my X99-Deluxe, painfully slow, wrote over BIOS settings when launched, etc. etc. You sited the only example I can think of for software hosing your BIOS settings unless you really try in Intel XTU. Uninstall AIS3, flash the BIOS if things aren't better, don't install it again.

    Calling all Enthoo Pro people!

    https://www.amazon.com/Phanteks-Bracket-Enthoo-Primo-PH-SDBKT_02/dp/B00M2UKO7U I've never found the Amazon dimension descriptions useful until now. Says 1" height. Measure the gap you have from the mounting face to the panel. I don't vividly remember the Pro's I've built in, but I would guess you're going to be getting within a few mm of the side panel.

    Warranty support ratings.

    Makes sense, I just went with my best educated guess. I was surprised that no one else had a G.Skill experience, although with the quality of their products and the service I got, I don't think there's too many people out there motivated (in a bad way) to tell about their experience.

Slot in your old card if you have one, or buy a cheap used 280X or 290 until the 1070 gets better availability, or the RX 480 benchmarks come out. 950 pro drive for the OS with a separate ~50GB partition for a scratch disk. Dual WD 1TB's for RAID backup of your finished products.

    Dip in firestrike physics test (OC)

    Kind of hard to tell without the graph extending for temp and freq. I'd guess LLC needs to get notched up, but without a voltage graph to go along with that hard to tell if it's from a dip/spike set on load.

    i5-4590 Overclockable?!?!

    lulz. ^ that Should've checked boost before I got all excited...it's been a long day of non-excitement....and it continues

    i5-4590 Overclockable?!?!

    On top of the IHS it usually says "Intel Confidential <line> #### ES <line> manufacturer origin (Costa Rica for example)".

    i5-4590 Overclockable?!?!

    wert der fuq..... If you wouldn't mind, try doing a Cinebench R15 run when it displays 3.3 and then again when it displays 3.7. Do you have an ES chip? or is it complete retail package you picked up at a store?

    Quick question on RAM

    Quick question on RAM

    well one of the ones you linked is SODIMM (for laptops) so no, in that case it wouldn't work. If you wanted value DDR3 RAM something like this would work> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231422 Assuming you're not intending to get RAM for a laptop. Although, on that website you linked, it's already their cheapest DDR3 offering. Any other local vendors you can look at?

    X99 Sabertooth Problem

    which NIC do you have it plugged into? Top port is the Realtek, bottom is Intel (assuming you have the mobo oriented upright w/CPU on the left). The drivers may not be installed for one or the other, double check that.
  15. It's not a correlation beween FSB and RAM voltage, it's the strap necessary to run RAM over 2666MHz. The weak IMC on X99 CPU's contributes to the difficulty in running higher speeds of DDR4, increasing BCLK stabilizes the set-up to a certain degree (along with voltage increases). If you don't want your CPU to run at an OC'd freq. (I don't know why you wouldn't) just lower the multiplier.

    Overclocking a 4690K

    You could likely hit 4.2 on whatever your stock voltage is. I would guess 1.1-1.15v range. Set your core voltage to manual/static in the BIOS, change mult to x42, and see if it is stable.
  18. The laptops you listed are from the old rPGA (Pin Grid Array) sockets, I believe the m4500 and m6500 are rPGA989. It's not an LGA 1366 socket board, not sure where you got that info. The best CPU you could socket into those boards would probably be an i7-640M, but it wouldn't be worth the trouble.

    Extreme Temperature

    Use HWMonitor or HWinfo to confirm that the Corsair Link software isn't just bugging out. If it is, uninstall and reinstall.
  20. Yeah, send that shit back. They're probably trying to get away with binning them and reselling. People that lazy and stupid don't deserve your money.
  21. If they were selling it as an OEM chip they're just careless and didn't clean off the thermal paste. OEM would mean they had a batch of Dell/HP/OEM supplier machines, stripped them for parts, and took the CPU's to resell. The CPU's were once mounted in the machines, which is why there would be thermal paste. If you pulled that out of a genuine Intel box that came with a factory fan, manual, etc. it should definitely not have any marks or leftover TIM.
  22. Life is much easier with keeping the original boxes, as you have already figured out, don't get rid of the Xeon packaging. If I was buying a used CPU w/out the original packaging I would want to receive it in a foam set crush resistant case. Shouldn't be too difficult (or expensive) to spend a few bucks on something like floral foam and use an old cellphone box. Anti-static bag is a plus, but CPU's aren't as vulnerable as bare PCB GPU's or MOBO's.
  23. Why would you take the time to RMA most of your components when you have no idea why it's happening? How did the RMA's even get approved if you have no evidence of a product failure (physical or otherwise)? Also, what are the actual symptoms? "stuttering like crazy" is an abstract way of stating a potential problem with any component. You need to be way more specific. Does the OS hang when doing certain tasks? Can you reproduce the problem consistently? How do you reproduce it? If I had to place a bet on what is wrong with the system my first guess would be HDD/SSD misconfiguration, failure, or OS corruption based on "stuttering like crazy" symptoms. Of course that assumes your CPU isn't downclocking due to thermal throttling, improper C-states, voltage droop, etc. etc. Do some due-diligence in trying to reproduce the problem and get some metrics on the system status when it is happening (clock speed, temps, active software, etc.). No one is going to take the time to try and help if you can't take the time to provide details of the problem.
