  1. The tCWL/tWRRD_sg/tWRRD_dg issue was affecting all ICs, not only Hynix. However, it only happened from 3733x101.81 (3800) and above, under this it was perfectly fine so you couldn't encounter this on MFR.
  2. New HOT XOC BIOS v2 available here: http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=146382 It fix bug with tCWL cannot go below 19 and tWRRD_sg/tWRRD_dg cannot go below 30 above 3799.
  3. People having issues with FPT are going to hate me, but I just updated HOT XOC BIOS v2 in first page! It fix bug with tCWL cannot go below 19 and tWRRD_sg/tWRRD_dg cannot go below 30 above 3799. EDIT: Also add some loose profiles for max frequency on HyperX AFR (I didn't try them yet).
  4. Some OC skills. 1) Ring voltages in the table I provided are measured with a DMM hooked on V-Check points 2) Ring OC2 voltages in the table I provided are measured with a DMM hooked on socket pins 3) There is always differences between DMM and BIOS reading (even between DMM brand A vs DMM brand B) 4) Because of 3) 1.12v BIOS = 1.15v DMM 5) Motherboard can't read or display any of the Turbo Socket extra voltages
  5. It's not relevant, I never had issues to run 3000CL10 ~ 3200 CL12 or even 3333 XMP on any 5960X I tested. However some of those same chips did had poor ring frequency. Try the settings I provided to you and if you can't boot you'll have your answer.
  6. Thanks for your feedback @ocvn & @GunnzAkimbo. However as I repeated many times already, this thread is for OC Support ONLY. For anything not related to OC, please contact technical support directly (http://register.msi.com), as it does not belong here. There is only one revision of the X99A GODLIKE GAMING. Core and Ring are two very different things, your CPU can have a very good core and very bad IMC, which seems to be your case. As you can see, most users don't have issues to reach more than 4Ghz no matter BIOS, so this is definitely CPU related. Try to set Ring OC2 to 1.5v and Ring voltage to 1.35v for 4GHz, if it don't boot then your CPU has the worst IMC I have ever seen. If it does boot, then try to lower these voltage separately until you find the limit for each.
  7. Test BIOS for XOC have ALWAYS been this way and it will not change. There is nothing complicated to flash with FPT. If you don't like it, you don't use it and stick to MP/BETA BIOS.
  8. After flashing HOT BIOS, check that your ME version is correctly displayed in system status. If you see, reflash using M-Flash it will recognize HOT BIOS after it has been flashed once with FPT.
  9. I'll be glad to tell you everything I know but I probably have much more to learn from you.
  10. As I have been asked in PM, command for FPT is: fpt -f biosname I use DOS bootable dongle that I create with free tool "Rufus", but latest FPT versions should also work with Windows, though I never tried personally.
  11. For AFR non HOT edition I narrowed "Memory Layout Finetune" settings. Up to 3766, best should be from AUTO (1.2KHz) to 1.8KHz. I will try higher on LN2 tomorrow to find out best value.
  12. New BIOS for HOT and tools updated in OC Support thread: http://forum.hwbot.org/showpost.php?p=420379&postcount=152 Have fun guys and see you in CA!
  13. First page updated with Command Center Lite Memory - Fix several reading bugs, I have quickly checked it, seems OK but please report here if you find any issues. Long awaited XOC BIOS E7968IMS.HOT along with its specific Command Center Lite! - HOT BIOS is based on MP BIOS 143, both BIOS will work the same with other ICs than AFR. - You need FPT 1194 to flash this BIOS (see first page). - ALL voltages fully unlocked for XOC. - BIOS include new AIR EXTREME and LOW LN2 OC Profiles which preset CPU settings/voltages from Ln2 OC Guide along with other settings for XOC. - BIOS has been fine tuned for Hynix AFR with new PCB (HOT Edition, will be provided by HyperX to contestants). - Tested with XTU and AFR new PCB up to 1986MHz 11-16-16-28-300-1T with "loose tertiary timings" on Ln2 (1754pts @5Ghz Core/Ring and 3866 so far, I'll try more later). - Tested with XTU and AFR new PCB up to 1900MHz 13-17-17-28-310-1T with "tight secondary timings" on air. - If you use AFR with current PCB, maybe it needs some manual fine tune of the option "Memory layout finetune" in "Advanced DRAM settings". Start from 1KHz and test up to 2.3KHz with +3733 and tight timings to see which one works the best (I had no time to do it yet, sorry).
  14. You guys gonna have fun with AFR! Not my best score, but surely the highest frequency I have reached on aircooling so far (no E-Die here): I'm finishing to fine tune this new BIOS for HOT, then I will post it in my OC Support thread, should be ready by end of this week. P.S: Please read my Ln2 OC guide before asking questions!
  15. You can stick to MP BIOS unless you have issues. If you modified CPU ratio it will change to "fixed mode" and disable EIST/Turbo Boost at same time, nothing odd. As mentioned on first page, BIOS are ranked "from older (top) to newer (bottom)", I think it is clear enough. Did you ever boot 4GHz ring AUTO on any BIOS yet? If not then it probably mean you need to manually fine tune voltages.
  16. First page clarified and updated with following BIOS updates: X99A GODLIKE GAMING - MP BIOS 120 X99A GODLIKE GAMING - BETA BIOS 131 X99A XPOWER AC - MP BIOS A20 X99A MPOWER - BETA BIOS M73 X99A GAMING 9 ACK - BETA BIOS 313
  17. So much emotion in that post! ^^ 1) I never said 120 and 121 were the same, I said BETA 121 is newer than MP 120. 2) After checking change log this was however a mistake, I got messed up by the numbers as 121 and 123 are indeed older than 120. To clarify, BIOS releases start with MP 100, followed by BETA 111, 112, 113, 114, etc. then MP 110, followed by BETA 121, 122, 123, etc. then MP 120. 2) If you look at previous posts I don't indicate BIOS changes for each update, unless I'm asked about it, so you couldn't know about Broadwell-E, however BETA 123 support it as well. 3) Test BIOS are unofficial releases only posted at HWBOT or directly send to ocers, usually early versions that include test features for extreme overclockers that might be implemented in MP/BETA BIOS later (Like Turbo Socket extra voltages, now implemented in MP BIOS). BETA BIOS are official releases directly sent to medias, Retailers/E-tailers/SI or end-users in case they encounter issues, all fix will be implemented in next MP BIOS. MP BIOS are official releases posted on MSI website/Live Update. Sorry if I lead to any misunderstanding, I hope it is all clear for you and others now. Please don't be so alarmist and wait for someone to reproduce and confirm they have same problem before claiming BIOS or else has issues. You said before X99A GODLIKE GAMING had compatibility issues with Win10 and so on, but after checking with technical support they didn't receive much complaints about it so far. Anyway, what you describe above is not normal as MB should enter failsafe mode after failed OC, but neither it is a major issue that should avoid using this BIOS version. Sometimes you only need to go through few past posts to find the answer I replied the safe 24/7 Ring voltage question here: http://forum.hwbot.org/showpost.php?p=419168&postcount=109 I posted AUTO voltages table here: http://forum.hwbot.org/showpost.php?p=419178&postcount=112 About performance it is very relative and depends of your usage type, for benchmarks it sure helps.
  18. Use large data set in OCCT. LoL, 1.2 MP BIOS (120) has been out for a while already. It is older than 121-123 BETA BIOS I posted here and all of them are Official releases (only Test BIOS are not). So far we released around one BIOS per month for that board which is not that bad I think! 0.02v difference in BIOS or OS might mean nothing as voltage is probably the same between BIOS versions when measured with voltmeter. It could also be different Loadline calibration setting under load as well.
  19. Updated first page with BIOS 143 for Z170A XPOWER GAMING TE. It improve memory compatibility and Loadline calibration.
  20. @vdelvec Your CPU seems to be not bad if you can XTU with these settings. However, don't forget to validate your final OC with a stress test such as OCCT or Prime95 (I personally prefer the first one). @ocvn As heavy as XTU can be, it is still "only" a benchmark and of course you will need to lower frequency or use higher vCore to pass OCCT which is a real stress test. Anyway, there is absolutely no doubt XTU is much heavier than Cinebench R15. I binned around 100pcs of 5960X on X99 platform under aircooling and about ~20pcs under Ln2; on all of them, Cinebench R15 can usually pass 100~150MHz higher than XTU.
