    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    I bought an MSI Suprim X 4090 but I can't use it. I'm experiencing a boot loop issue on my Asus Z690 Extreme board. There are a lot of other users with my same problem on other forums... so disappointed.

    Leaving Asus for MSI after 22 years.

    they have released a firmware without a single test, this new firmware is creating big problems to everyone. there are wrong voltages given to the CPU with CPUs with crazy high temps. they gave this firmware to Microsoft to use it with the Microsoft Windows update. this firmware is...

    Who is still using a Sandy Bridge era chip

    the problem of older CPUs is that they create stuttering even at 4K where GPU is the limiting factor, it's difficult to understand when it's time to swap the CPU for a new one because the benchmarks doesn't shows bad results. the problem is as said, the stuttering that is inevitable with an old...

    Luciferin. DIY bias lighting for your monitor.

    The GitHub's page of the project is linked in the first post along with a complete wiki. I agree that most hardware enthusiast are not into soldering, this project was meant for Arduino users and DIY users mostly. I added a Discord invite link on the first post. In any case I don't think that...

    Build your own Luciferin then, the result is even better than the Philips one. :)

    Luciferin. DIY bias lighting for your monitor.

    Hi, thanks for the interest in it. Most people prefers to do the DIY way so no, I never started thinking on taking orders. It could change in the future if I'll receive more requests or "group buy".

    you don't need to buy it, you can build it DIY, it's not difficult, there is a complete wiki on the github page and even a discord server if you need help.

    [SPD WRITE PROTECTION = FALSE] and Asus Z690 Extreme hangs on boot.

    after seven months I started asking for a solution to the problem I can say that the Asus support is ridiculous, they delete forum posts on their ROG site, they ban users that complaints on discord bout design flaws that aren't solved. shame on asus.

    If I close iCue, the PC doesn't hang since no one write the SPD. but as I said I have too much corsair peripherals that doesn't work well without iCue.

    [SPD WRITE PROTECTION = FALSE] and Asus Z690 Extreme hangs on boot.

    my OP is correct. If I disable the SPD Write protection (this means enable SPD Write), iCue can write to SPD and control the RGB, and I have the problem. If I enable the SPD Write protection (this means disable SPD Write), iCue can't write to SPD to control the RGB, and the problem disappear...

    As I said, I'm using 6.2GHz sticks @ 5.2GHz for stability reasons. I have tried downclocking even more down to 3.6GHz but the problem remains. The problem isn't related to instability since I can pass all the benchamarks and stress tests for days without problems if I enable the SPD Write...

    corsair does not even answers to issues on forums or via tickets. https://forum.corsair.com/forums/topic/177357-asus-z690-extreme-hangs-on-boot-due-to-icue they say that the problem is in the asus mobo and stopped responding to that issue.

    I confirm that it was just lazyness and it's really easyer to talk about Asus boards on forums since Asus have a wider community. but I had too much problems with asus and I want to try something else.

    Hi all, I buy Asus boards since the Asus CUSL2 in the 2000 (Pentium III mobo). Every time I buy an Asus board there are some issues that are never solved and that are clearly related to design issues. Asus simply ignore these issues and pretends nothing has happened. I'm not talking about OC...

    12900K Tamed On Cinebench With NH U12A chromax Black Air Cooler with small overclock 80°C Max

    Do you want 64GB of DDR5? Be prepared to spend two times more than DDR4 to go slower!

    Correct, from 2 sticks at 6GHz, I need to lower to 4.4GHz to get 4 sticks stable. I have tried all the suggested voltages for big OC and 4.8GHz became a little bit more stable but it isn't 100% stable so I reverted back to 4.4GHz.

    at the end I was able to run 6000MHz no problem on my 2x16GB Samsung Corsair Dominator 5600MHz C36 using XMP and no other settings changed apart the ram frequency. if I add two sticks more I goes down from 6GHz to 4.4GHz since I can't get 4.8GHz stable with 4 sticks. How this can be possible...

    DDR5 is full of false advertisement, bad marketing and a lot of missunderstandings. This is the reality of the current situation. There is no single rank 32GB DDR5 modules currently. This means that if you want 64GB of DDR5 memory you have two options. Get a 2x32GB dual rank modules. Get a...

    Asus Maximus Z690 can't boot with XMP Enabled

    but is it safe to run "CPU System Agent Voltage" to 1.25V? My Asus mobo shows values greater than 1.2V with a warning. same for the Memory Controller voltage, everything over 1.2 in in yellow (means warning)
