I'm having an issue with Deep Sleep on this monitor, PC specs in sig.
- With Deep Sleep disabled, the monitor works as expected, but the internal fan stays on (audible in a quiet room) and the monitor consumes up to 15-30w even with the PC off.
- With Deep Sleep enabled, the monitor will wake...
Dan_D When I saw the topic "Is Intel's X299 Platform Better than the X99?" posted I was excited to see a [H] comparison of X99 chips (5960X, 6950X, etc) vs X299 chips (7900X, etc). Instead we get an editorial piece that explains details that we could have just read from the spec sheets. With...
I'm using a Gigabyte X99 Gaming-G1 in where I had some similar issues. You can read more about some of my issues (and solutions) HERE. Gigabyte sill hasn't solved the booting into BIOS with a hard drive connected yet; there is a work around posted in my thread.
As for the memory...
Been at this game for a while... This is the list for the main gaming PC throughout the years:
Trident TVGA8900D-R 1MB
Matrox Mystique 220 Business 4MB
Creative Voodoo2 12MB SLI
Creative Voodoo Banshee 16MB
Visiontek Riva TNT 2 Ultra 32MB
Leadtek Geforce 2 GTS 32MB
Leadtek Geforce 3 Ti500 64MB...
Do you have any drives connected that previously had data on them? That was the issue for me any many others on Gigabyte X99 boards. Disconnect your SSD/Hard drive and you'll be able to get into the BIOS just fine. See the X99-Gaming G1 issue tracker here
Added 2 more issues with the onboard sound which is a shame given the highly touted audio capabilities of this board. (I mind as well use retro's BIOS above and go back to the Essence STX I've had since 2009)
Updated issue 2 with some overclocking settings.
Thanks retro. I see you have 2666MHz memory in your sig. Were you able to get your memory running at 2666MHz using a 1.0 BCLK multiplier? If so, are you able to overclock the CPU with the memory at that setting?
Kyle - Were you able to keep the 1.0 BCLK multiplier on the Gigabyte X99-UD4 when running the 2666MHz memory speed? I'm currently using a Gigabyte X99-Gaming G1 on BIOS F8c and using XMP settings or manually raising the memory frequency past 2133MHz will automatically set the BCLK multiplier to...
I'm going to use this space to track the issues and solutions I've encountered with the GA-X99-Gaming G1 WIFI. After doing some searching, a lot of the other Gigabyte X99 boards have similar features / issues; feel free to add your input!
Latest BIOS: F8c (9/18/14)
1) Unable to enter BIOS...
A single GPU system shouldn't be that bound by an 8150. While not the fastest CPU out there, scaling is pretty nominal for mid-range to high end CPU's as games are normally GPU bound.
Example using a GTX 580 here:
I would go ahead and do the upgrade to the 290X using the old 8150 and enjoy...
