    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    I pored over Reddit trying to find a solution and found nothing conclusive. Not only that, but I can't find anything as to AMD confirming or admitting the problem. If you have post that says all of that, then link to it here, otherwise it did not happen. I have spoken to someone at AMD tech...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    Update: I had to go to call my CC bank and initiate a dispute so that I can get my money back for the defective CPU. A few days after that, AMD's store (apparently run by Digital River) caved and sent me a return label. I would suggest not buying CPUs and GPUs from AMD's online store. I...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    To be 100% sure about the CPU, I swapped the 3900X into my other B550 Mortar that has been running perfectly for months. I also used a Hyper 212 cooler instead of the eSports Duo. Of course it didn't help. The resets began around 34 minutes after putting a 100% load on the CPU. So either I...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    No one is talking about WiFi interference here. Why are you even bringing that up? It makes no sense. This is not something new with AGESA. It's not a software bug. Some Ryzens have defective USB. I have a defective 3900X. I swap a good 3600X and the on CPU USB works perfectly. None of...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    What I've gathered is that only the USB ports that come from my 3900X are the ones that are seriously affected. Yet the CPU USB ports on my 3600X on the same motherboard work fine. This is why I am fairly confident the 3900X is defective (yours probably is too.) I have my USB OS/boot thumb...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    More details? Exactly what makes you suspicious that I might be lying or intentionally omitting details? Maybe there are more details because I have wasted more time and money trying to solve this. And now I'm wasting more time replying to your posts. Setup: Case, PSU, motherboard, 3900X...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    It's the CPUs. I tried: MSI B550M Mortar (two of them), MSI B550M PRO VDH, and an ASUS X570-Plus TUF. All have the exact same problem. It's also not software, drivers, or OS. Linux and Windows both have the same problem. You're just lucky you didn't get a defective CPU.

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    Absolutely nothing you do will fix this problem. The best I've gotten was get the USB 2.0 (chipset ports) working okay by setting the chipset PCIe to Gen 2. People who say they've fixed the problem by disabling C-states, setting idle power, disabling USB sleep, etc, etc haven't loaded their...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    Dan, I suspected that it might have the USB built it, but I wasn't sure. Make sense. But aren't these CPUs guaranteed to work at 1800Mhz Infinity Fabric? Schizo, I'm running everything at default now (2666Mhz RAM and 1333Mhz IF) and I thought everything was working. But it took a little over...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    Hi. Thanks for the suggestion. I'm using an MSI B550M Mortar and it doesn't have that option anywhere in the BIOS.

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    It's definitely a problem when the CPU is loaded. I will try disabling some core to see if that helps. I don't know if there is a motherboard problem or I got a defective CPU. Sensor data at 100% load. Voltages look okay to me. k10temp-pci-00c3 Adapter: PCI adapter Tctl: +63.5°C...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    That's the thing, it's a headless server with no GPU installed. I'll put a GPU in, enter the BIOS, and force PCIe to Gen3 where ever possible. I think the problem occurs when the CPU is loaded. I just ran it for a while unloaded and there were no USB resets. As soon as I put a 100% load on...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    I updated to the latest BIOS, set the CPU and RAM frequencies and voltages. Plugged in a single USB stick and keyboard and still getting resets. This time I tried the Gen 2 ports. So it looks like this problem affects all of the ports. [Sat Jan 16 11:52:45 2021] usb 4-4: reset SuperSpeed...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    I've been running Linux on a couple of 3600Xs @4.3ghz 24/7 since October of last year and they've been working perfectly. I was so impressed by them that I decided to upgrade one to 3900X since the 5000 series is hard to get and not worth the cost. I upgraded one of the machines and everything...

    Amazon Prime Day is Oct 13-14

    There are a few nice deals. But you have to watch out for scams too. Example: Prime day "deal" for the 3-pack $8 a piece. Prime day "deal" for the 2-pack $8.50 a piece. Regular price single pack is $7.50.

    Spectra's New LGA1151 Motherboard Takes Us Back to 1992 With PCI Slots

    Supermicro X10SRA users: can you help?

    Two processors is a bit of overkill for me, and it won't fit in my case either. I would turn off the IPMI unless it's a server. It just adds to the boot time. There is probably an update for your IPMI (it's the same ASpeed that Supermicro uses) that allows it to work over HTML5. That Java...

    Supermicro X10SRA users: can you help?

    Two motherboards, two processors, two ram kits, three PSUs later and the same problem. The second motherboard was "new" yet looked like a refurb. Fingerprints all over shiny metal parts, dust, chipped paint on the chipset heatsink. And best part was that there were bent pins on the back of...

    Supermicro X10SRA users: can you help?

    I just replaced the processor with another and still the same problem. I also disabled the onboard LAN and audio and removed all but one stick of RAM. That didn't help. I have no idea if this is a benign error or something seriously wrong with the motherboard.

    Supermicro X10SRA users: can you help?

    I bought a X10SRA and I noticed that WHEA is reporting a fatal hardware fault with the PCIe root port. I'm not sure if it is the processor or the motherboard that's at fault. I need to figure out which one needs to go back. I've already contacted Supermicro and it was pretty much no help...

    Need UPS for Active PFC PSU

    Two days ago I upgraded a server and found out that it does not deal with the APC Backups 1000 XS UPS at all. I hoped that it would work because the old server had a PSU with active PFC and it worked fine. New PSU: SuperMicro PWS-704P-1R 700 watt 80+ gold active pfc Old PSU: PC P&C SIlencer...

    New retro rig upgrade (PCI to ISA enclosure)

    The problem with pci to isa bridges is that they only work with programmed i/o. The last intel chipset that had isa dma lines was the 865 for Pentium 4 s478. I doubt any card that requires dma will be fully functional. The synth on your awe64 might work, but the sb16 digital audio won't.

    Getting a Wii U, should I get a SD Card or Flash Drive first?

    I disagree. Save game data can only be placed in the internal storage or USB storage; you can't use the SD card slot for save games. The SD card slot is only used for the Wii side, SSB screenshots, and maybe a few other minor things. When you are backing up your save data, you have to copy...

    Late 2013 15" rMBP locks up every few days

    I had this annoying problem on my 2011 MBP when I upgraded to Mavericks. I could still use a bluetooth mouse. All I had to do is log out and back in for the trackpad and keyboard to work again. I'm on 10.9.5 right now and luckily it hasn't happened in 6 months.

    Reflash BIOS

    I should have asked, but did you try to recover the BIOS using a USB thumb drive method? The rename the BIOS file from Asus's web site to K55A.bin and place it on a FAT32 formatted thumb drive. Turn it on and press CTRL + Home immediately. If you see read activity on the thumb drive's light...

    Reflash BIOS

    LM3, I just replied to your PM. That link I sent you to is probably the same chip that's on your laptop. The programmer should be compatible with most SPI chips. I have never had any trouble programming MX chips or others on various motherboards.

    Reflash BIOS

    Don't try to unsolder the chip. You'll screw it up unless you have the right tools and are skilled with a soldering iron. Get an SPI programmer and an SOIC/SOP clip to connect it to the BIOS chip. It should cost less than $30 shipped all the way from China/Hong Kong. Something like this...

    VPN Unlimited 100 years for $39

    The reason they can sell it so cheaply is because people buy the service rarely use it. I bought it six months ago, tried it, and never used it again because of some shady stuff I noticed about their client. You can't connect to them using a stock OpenVPN client. They use a modified version...

    Mini/Micro ITX Needed For BSD PfSense Firewall / Router (More Than 2xGigabit?)

    I'm using a Supermicro A1SRi-2558F. It's a 4-core Atom ITX motherboard with 4 Intel ethernet ports. The CPU is powerful enough and supports AES and VT. There are micro ATX and 8-core versions also. The A1SRi-2558F requires ECC RAM, but the micro ATX version can use standard RAM. Mini ITX...

    Multiple Static IPs Question

    It sounds like you have a bridged network with Comcast (no routing or PPPoE,) but I could be wrong. There are a few things you can do: 1. Plug in your PCs and devices and manually give them static IPs in from your IP block. 2. Or run a DHCP server to hand out the static IP addresses to...

    Wii U error code 118-0516 trying to play Mario Kart 8

    Here is another suggestion. Set up a proxy server on your router and have the Wii U connect through that. I don't know it will work, but it's worth a try.

    Wii U error code 118-0516 trying to play Mario Kart 8

    Why do you think you have to double NAT? Turn off the DHCP server on your wifi "router" and connect your ISP's DSL/cable modem to your wifi router to one of its switch ports. Do not connect it to the WAN port. Your wifi router will now simply act as an access point. Or: Leave your wiring in...

    Best Buy 128GB usb 3.0 flash drive: $39.99

    Damn that was a good deal. I bought one of these a month ago from Amazon for $15 more. The read and write speeds are incredibly good for the price. The only bad thing is that the shell is a little cheesy. I would pick up another if the retail store had them at that price.

    Mario Kart 8 - Amazon Sell Out

    Free Pokemon X or Y - Details

    Let us know if you have any luck. I bought a 3DS XL after Christmas and would like to see if I can get the deal. That's good to find out. I always thought the movies, cartoon, cards were childish too. But Nintendo makes really good games, so I was curious about X/Y on the 3DS.
