  1. "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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. lulz. ^ that Should've checked boost before I got all excited...it's been a long day of non-excitement....and it continues
  9. On top of the IHS it usually says "Intel Confidential <line> #### ES <line> manufacturer origin (Costa Rica for example)".
  10. 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?
  11. http://www.custompc.ie/crucial-4gb-ddr3-1600-241653-p.asp 2 of those saves you 9.47
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
