    Because they are pushed to OEMs first?

    It's not hard to understand, it isn't just intel that doesn't post the latest on their website.

    Realtek audio drivers are from like early 2015, yet you can get generic ones from dells website dated yesterday.

    Your weariness of that website is not necessary, it's safe.

    that makes no sense OEM's get mutiple versions drivers long before websites official post them on there site. to me that is like say "we dont trust those drivers" enough to post them to the own site.

    Offical site list driver from year ago when there newer ones is just stupid and lazy at that imo

    I have used it before that site it were i got RST driver I used to fix the random raid0 has reset for my x58 system, i just stickler for getting from the official manufacture OCD and all. Z170 is doing it randomly too on my z170 system so i probably gona try the new ones at somepoint.

    Station drivers is safe, is a known hw driver site for a very long time.

    I've just updated IMEI driver and inf.ini files recently, actually I got almost all my drivers there and never had a issue. Ok just one time with some 20.0 LAN driver, was too beta'ish..

    Station-Drivers is my go-to site for drivers.

    Yeah, SD and win-raid are very safe and reputable sites. I've been visiting the former since I was a boy lol.

    Use the newer version of RST available there. On Asus' site, version 14.5 is available but that ancient version won't let my hard drives go into power saving mode after whatever time is set in power options. I recommend v15 because I had corruption issues in 1607 with an older version under the 14.8.xx branch.

    Hey guys, new user here. I finished my build a couple of days ago and I've since been trying to figure out temps and stuff.

    I7 6700K, Asus Z170-a, Hyper Evo 212, Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB 2133MHz, Corsair Carbide 400C, Super Flower Leadex 80+ 650 Silver, SSD 750 EVO, HDD Seagate Desktop.

    First of all, the motherboard came by default with auto settings for voltages, reaching 1.4 for stock frequency and 70-80 temps.
    I am currently still running at stock frequencies and I have tried manual voltage at 1.2 and adaptive. I reach somewhere around 65 max temp in benchmarks and tests which I feel is a bit high, considering what other users reported ?

    I am wondering what BIOS settings should I try while keeping stock frequency, as I think the VCore is a bit higher than 1.2 even in manual mode (at least reported by some software like HWMOnitor, HWINFo etc).

    Should I modify anything else like LLC or C-states or what settings should I go to for stock frequency in order to get good voltage and temps.

    I already reseated and reapplied thermal paste, and I am considering switching the cooler to a noctua NH-D14 but for now I want to figure out the BIOS setup until I return my current cooler.

    keeping my 6600k at stock speed.
    for now, it is fast enough for my needs.
    will overclock when need arise.

    He have,but those 6600k or 6700k are running too hot when are OC and usually they need bit more vCore than on other platform plus without the delid I wouldn't OC to high GHz

    Thanks,Jura

    My skylake runs a higher OC and cooler temps than my ivybridge ever did (like a good 15*C+ difference). Stability stress testing, my 4.7Ghz skylake hits 68*C over the long term vs 90*C on my previous 4.4Ghz ivybridge

    Hello ansin and welcome!

    Looks like a nice build and if you wish you can post pictures of it at the Guru3D dedicated thread.

    *-=The Guru of 3D rig gallery =-*

    So on your topic. I would set the multiplier at 43-44(4300-400MHz) using adaptive or manual@1.25v and take from there until you reach 70-75'C imo.

    As for the Hyper Evo 212 and without knowing you ambient temps, I would say for 1.4v, those are good temps. Lastly I wouldn't like running my cpu over 75'C for its 24/7 daily OC.

    Also usually on Asus boards LLC 4 or 5 works best for most scenarios. Check LLC 4 and its voltage under load and then LLC 5's voltage under load and decide.

    If non its satisfying check the other LLC settings, etc etc. You could also try upping the ram to 2400MHz. Just the frequency, nothing else.

    Keep us posted. :thumbup:

    I read on Asus' ROG forum in the BIOS version 2001 thread that recent versions have trouble when you use RAM speeds between 2400-2800. It may not post or update may fail or you may face stability issues and I can confirm that's the source of my recent troubles with my PC. So if you have an Asus motherboard and your RAM speed is below 3000Mhz, try going back to stock 2133 until Asus fixes it ... hopefully fixes it. I can't stay on older versions now because the AU is prone to BSOD's on them and I don't want to go back to 1511 :-/

    Asus has a new BIOS out, v2202. It has some microcode update.

    I only recently went from 1701 to 2001. And we have a new one already?

    2 bios in 1 month? It must those issues mentioned in your previous post about the RAM speeds etc.

    Anyhow thank you for the info. :thumbup:

    Yeah, the issues look like they're fixed! It's been driving me crazy for almost 2 months now.

    Was similar with early Z87 Asus mobos, my deluxe had some ram glitches too at first (2-3releases). But when its fixed its perfect:pc1:

    Is it the new normal for Asus? I read accounts of similar faulty firmware for their routers on Amazon. My previous mobo, the P6T deluxe (X58), had no issues at all from the BIOS' side. Anyway, it seems to be working so I won't complain but it was a terrible experience when it happened. I wasted so much time trying to fix it and mess with windows.

    Every time I read about issues with Asus firmware, it makes me happy that I don't generally buy Asus motherboards....
