Figured it out. Had to set "Memory Context Restore" to Enabled rather than Auto.
Didn't think it was memory training related since the extra delay was only ~8-10s (vs the 30s+ that everyone seems to talk about), but I guess ASUS' really screwed the pooch with their AM5 offerings
(lots of reports...
B650M Aorus Elite AX represent!
Whatever, still on BIOS F3c from last Nov with VSOC behaving itself.
Will wait a couple of months / releases before updating (and revalidating the PBO undervolt + underwatt)
Never fear, I is here...
Forgot to add that we were a Lenovo shop for laptops, but Dell for desktops (very limited number).
It is indeed quite something to see up-to-date Spectre/Meltdown fixes for old (790, 7010, 7020, etc.) OptiPlexes!
Getting flashbacks to the latest Pentium chips, and Angelina Jolie's b00bies
Employer was acquired about a year ago. We used to be a Lenovo shop.
New company (rightly or wrongly) refuses to use them due to potential security risks; only Dells are allowed
On the todo list. That setup was created in a hurry (long story - replaced the core 5900X components chasing a random reboot issue, turned out to be a defective Seasonic Focus GM PSU of all things)
Wasn't going to rip the 7900X out, and reinstall the 5900X, so what the heck, let's call it an...
Haven't had the time to mess around with both setups, but figured I could get away with 1.25VSOC since I'm only running 6000-CL30
Am familiar with the initial RAM training on AM5, but this delay is on every cold boot for the ASUS.
Seems to be a common complaint on ASUS AM5 mobos (that and the...
Extra datapoints :
1) Been running the 7900X setup in my sig since last Nov, still on the early Gigabyte F3c BIOS that I flashed then.
No issues with EXPO on, VSOC behaves itself (<= 1.3V, usually ~1.29V max under various loads)
2) Recently built another 7900X setup (the MC combo, so ASUS...
No problems. As far as I can tell, typical Lian Li build quality (good)
Cable management was not too troublesome, though it does help that the eVGA 3060 Ti only needs a single 8-pin.
A PSU with less depth than mine (eVGA G3) would definitely have been nice, and definitely recommend something...
Think this is still a current product, as it keeps getting restocked regularly (qty on the site fluctuates, always a few present in store (Dallas), etc.)
Was not happy with the...
I like the Lian Li Lancool 170M, but it seems to be a MicroCenter exclusive model (doesn't appear anywhere on Lian Li's site)
Here's a PDF of the manual that I scanned
Fairly compact, and very cheap (~$40 IIRC)
Actual / measured, or just via software?
Guess I must be lucky. Have been running 2x 7900X + Gigabyte B650M Aorus Elite AX setups (see sig) since last Nov with no issues.
Still on the (now defunct) F3c BIOS, and VSOC has always behaved itself with EXPO on (< 1.3V, usually 1.29V whether idle, or...
No one is making the claim that a 4770K is the equivalent of RocketLake or Zen4
However, it is also not exactly like trying to run Crysis on a Z80 (maybe a 68060?)
Definitely agree that something like a 5600X would be more appropriate, but beyond the money, it is also the time/trouble of...
A 3060 is a nothingburger, and would be around a 1080 performance-wise, which is perfectly appropriate to pair with a 4770K
My trusty old 4770K @ 4.6GHz w/ 1080Ti is still working perfectly fine as a secondary rig (upgraded to a 7900X / 3060 Ti last Nov)
Still have a dozen pairs of the old / original design Klipsch 2.1s in service (for over 15+ years)
Only repairs have been :
- (1x) replace speaker terminal block (clips fell apart spontaneously)
- (1x) replace control pod (went bad)
- (?x) deoxit treatment on the volume / sub pots
That's an interesting point (regarding USB PD), hadn't thought about it (still stuck in the non-PD mindset, heck barely have any USB-C systems and devices)
While I can understand why no one is investing in mechanical 2.5" development, I would still like something, anything larger than 4TB that...
Easiest to break USB down like this :
[Connector] A goes at one end, B the other. C goes anywhere.
[Protocol] Right hand numbers for the major version (1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc.), and speed variants within that
[Power Protocol] PD - only one name
Maybe I'm getting old and cynical, but all this security stuff seems to be meant for securing our computers against us rather than for us
DRM, walled gardens, telemetry, corporate profits, and all that 1984 jazz
Let us peek and poke in peace
Excellent! I could have targeted higher than stock ST/MT performance (higher PPT limit), but was absolutely happy with +1-2% at 138W / 74C
Especially considering that I'm using a small-ish (~21L) case and inexpensive (~$35) HSF
