    Fair point. I was comparing relatively to the only other option. Which is 2 x GV100s at 19k.

    Tis is true. And If I were rich, 19K would be a steal. :)

    To modify the RAM. I built my own XMP 2 profile and it works fine, but I can't change anything now since TB doesn't seem to run on this platform. So, there was a subscription renewal flushed down the toilet, LOL.

    Have you found a version of AI Suite that will actually run on this board? The version on the CD doesn't work, and neither does the version for download from ASUS. Those I had already downloaded for the Maximus X are also non-functional. It seems to be broken on W7 and W10. It's handy for in-OS fan control changes. I crashes on launch, or refuses to launch, depending on the version.

    Here is an example. Pretty awesome. Sure beats the crap out of that awesome 8700K sample I have thoroughly enjoyed. If I didn't want the money from the motherboard and CPU to put toward the cost of a water chiller, I'd build another desktop and hang onto it.

    It's weird having one computer. I think the last time I owned only one computer was like around 2003. I might buy a refurbished ZBook with a socketed Haswell 4800MQ CPU for a backup system to avoid BGA filth. I despise HP products, but it's hard to find cheap laptops that are not BGA, and that seems like a good option for about $300 in spite of it being made by HP.

    Yeah, so 306 base system watts at idle, increased to 954W when testing wprime32 - so that's 650W going to the CPU package at load (not counting idle CPU power consumption and PSU efficiencies). Well, that's a lotta Watts!

    Even with a wimpy baby-girl 47x16 and 3200 RAM overclock, the performance is truly excellent. And, the temps are really low at 47x16.

    Hummmm, on the Apex it looks a bit slow? And voltage seems a bit high 1.48V?

    As to TB. I Never really gave it any thought to running it on a desktop board, since most of the high end boards give you access to the timings. Not to mention already tried and true profiles loaded on most of these boards.

    You need DIP5 V1.05.14
    And more than likely you will also need the ITBM driver as well. V1.1.0.1005.(NVM It is still crashing with this version)


    Edit:
    1401 nor 1301 are really not that good. They tend to crash a lot when messing with memory and then love to sit in the 00 or BD error codes

    I cannot find an AI Suite that runs for some reason. Isn't DIP5 V1.05.14 part of AI Suite? I have the ITBM driver installed. I will try lowering the voltage. I had to increase it for the Maximus X Hero board for 4200 and I just coded it to the XMP profiles. I may have to temporarily boot it up on the desk with the iGPU and reprogram the default SPD for this board to use it correctly. I started tinkering with it after the new ME goofed everything up and got all but the 4 stick problem above 3800 by using my own values instead of Cosair's.
