Thinking I'll probably look at changing boards this week, had an issue over the weekend where it crashed, got stuck in a loop of rebooting then gave me the good old 'overclocking failed' message, after entering the BIOS and just quitting without saving it did then boot into windows but I really don't trust it one bit.

Lets turn this into a "i hate ROG STRIX X99" thread
Got home from 2 wks away for work no one has started my machine, go to turn it on and get a b6 error code cannot clear cmos until i remove the battery, machine boots and i find my D1 dimm slot has died
Now the RMA fun begin

EDIT: OK to be fair i fixed the problem, with some research i found a small post that talked about x99 dead dimm slots and the fix was to increase the CPU voltage and system agent voltage.
So i just enabled xmp and i had all slots working again than i disabled xmp and still had all slots working, i will just have to play with the voltages to get it stable
Hope this helps some one in the future

That's a strange issue, glad you got it resolved.

These boards really do seem to a variety of strange issues that I've never encountered before, it's been solid this week though, no problems to speak of, just hope it stays that way!

My Strix x99 is three months old now and still going strong..The Third 6950x I got is still going strong too. So the X99 Deluxe is the culprit that killed the two 6950X...

Not sure how, or why, hadn't even started overclocking so I guess it's just bad luck!

PC shutdown while playing BF1 and upon trying to fire it up again it wouldn't post with code 00 and the CPU LED lit up on the motherboard, both are now on their way back for RMA so I'm back on the trusty old X58 platform with my 980X.

Was fun while it lasted though!
Check your PSU, probably not enough power.

You've got 2 Titan X cards and a hungry CPU.

Hi guys, I just registered to tell you that my 6950X also died yesterday and on a similar board - on X99 Deluxe U3.1

It ran either 4.2GHz <1.3V on custom LC but mostly just on stock/XMP and yet it died. Both the board and the CPU were bought new in may/june 2016.
It started months ago with random shutdowns, freezes, BSODs en got worse and worse with the time. Since yesterday only Q-code 00 / CPU_LED.

I wish it was an April Fools joke but it isn't, lapped CPU so no warranty for that one
Surely not buying anything on X99 anymore now, I always had ASUS boards and Intel CPU's as these were (in my opinion) the most reliable combo but I think I will turn to Ryzen soon now.
I now have to RMA a board that I'm sure I won't be using anymore.

Man i freak out every time i read this kind of stories about expensive hardware dying just like that even if it has nothing to do with me...

Better luck next time to all the unlucky Gurus.

When I saw that CPU_LED glowing i started sweating. I've never ever had a CPU die before and I had many of them, from Athlon XP's to i7's.
Can't be anything other than the board. Honestly this time ASUS should accept an RMA including the CPU this time, investigate the case and replace both as it's not Intel's fault ASUS can't design their X99 VRMs properly.

So those mobos have some design flaw or you telling me that bios is responsible for voltage peaks ie bugs in bios?

Well, could be both. Anyway in 2014 you could read about x99 deluxes VRM blowing up combined with Corsair PSU's already and then things got quiet. The thing is - I don't have a Corsair PSU and my board is from 2016, not 2014.

I don't know who is in charge of QC at ASUS but they need to step up their game, the latest X99 Deluxe BIOS made my VRM's idle at bloody 50*C on stock voltages and I'm not the only one with this issue

Not only the Deluxe seems to be randomly killing CPU's, also the X99A and R5E.
It looks like there is either a design flaw or faulty VRM management and seeing 50*C idle temps on the VRM's after the latest BIOS update (the VRMs ran much cooler on the older bios) tells me enough that they know what the problem is and are trying to solve it through firmware, otherwise they wouldn't touch it.

It's time they admit what's wrong with their X99's boards and stop covering up the issue.
I've already tried the BIOS Flashback feature to the previous version, it seemed to have finished succesfully but it's still stuck on 00.

I just tried the board without the CPU and it does the same - code 00 / cpu led right after start. The CPU stays stone cold, I wonder if both the CPU and MB are dead.

Power supply is fine, after the CPU replacement I've had zero issues.

Sorry to hear, was sweating a bit when I saw the CPU led and code 00 also, never want to see that again!

As for the boards being the problem i'm not 100% convinced anymore as after the CPU replacement I've had no issues with mine.

Still plenty of time for it to die I guess, I haven't updated to the latest BIOS as while it's working i'd rather not give it any reason to break

I don't think it's the CPU's fault, otherwise you'd read much more on dead BW-E /HW-E CPU's on other manufacturers boards

Sounds like 6950x CPUs aren't checked at Intel. Guess you got a bad batch?

My dad's PC has one too, and we can't get it working with XMP at anything other than 2133. Even 2400 causes issues. My 5960x runs the same memory at 3200 XMP with no issues.

My Thoughts exactly..

Having three 6950x and the first two died because of the Motherboard, My third 6950x still alive after 4 months..

Still nervous that one day I will be greeted by the dreaded Red CPU Led of Death with Code 00..

I am kinda amazed that you didn't sell that board right away after it came from RMA for the first time

I'm going to RMA mine anyway but when it comes back it goes for sale immideately.

I didn't think it was the Motherboard's fault..I was using Asus X99 Deluxe non 3.1..

Tested with a 6850K and 5820k and both was fine and alive while I was waiting for the replacement 6950x..

I am now using X99 Strix and still going strong for more than 4 months now..

They are the same, the only difference being the U3.1 has an additional USB3.1 card included in the box
