That's the same board I have, but mine is way different. Before you updated your BIOS, did you have a setting for CPU Strap? I don't think you do now.

Just try one thing, just for a test. Leave everything exactly like it is and change your Dram Frequency to 2400 (or as close as the dropdown will let you). Test that out and see if it helps or hurts. You can just change that 1 setting back at any time.

um, the ****, okay I'm 5 hours into a bootup with no crash yet, why would this work? We'll see if it holds. I don't remember if I had the cpu strap setting :/

I made the dram run at 2400

Hopefully that ram setting will make it at least better. I don't know. Just a WAG. Lets give it more time and just see.

How was that a wild ass guess, it has worked. No crashes all day or night since the change... whyyy? It couldn't be the power supply not being able to handle the difference between 2666 and 2400?

I honestly think it is one of the quirks with the X99 system. You can run your ram faster. But, to do so, in many cases you have to spend a lot of time playing with voltages of several things, like Vcore, Dram voltage and System Agent voltage. I have 2800 MHz ram. I have overclocked my system and run my ram at 2800 MHz. It can be done, but is a real Pain, so I just run mine at 2400 and don't have to worry about it. The board standard is 2133 MHz, so anything above that is basically overclocked. Having said all of that, it also depends on the IMC (Integrated Memory Controller) which is in the CPU. Some do it much better than others, just like overclocking the CPU. Some are much better than others. It's called the silicon lottery.

It can also have to do with the quality of the Ram you install. I can only tell you my experience with my board. The long and short of it is, once your ram hits 2666, you start to have stability problems. It used to be shown in the CPU Strap settings. There is no noticeable difference in running the ram at 2400-2666 or 2800. So why bother, is my opinion.

Ahhh the silicon lottery, yeah my cpu doesn't overclock very high without getting hot as f, even with a 240mm radiator I didn't think it would amount to having to underclock the ram though.

Thank you so much for the ongoing support, I've learnt something new about my computer.

Thank you very much Essenbe, I hope the issue doesn't arise again, it had plagued me for months.. lol.

If you start to have problems, drop the ram speed to 2400. Now, if you like playing in BIOS, if you underclock the Ram, you can usually lower some of the timings. I don't, but it can be done. But that can be a real pain. It's on a trial and error basis. You just keep changing them until you find lower timings that are stable. I don't do it because it is very time consuming and as long as mine is stable, I just leave it alone. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. My opinion.

You're more than welcome. I hope I helped a little. I hope it is solved for you. Time will tell that. My advice, if you start having stability problems, go find you a very good old fashioned overclocker. To be good, they have to have a lot of insight into stability issues, bios settings and hardware.

I hope I helped a little. Maybe it is fixed for you. When you think it is fixed, please mark this thread as solved. If you have problems later, you can come back, post here and mark it unsolved.
