Asus Rampage IV Black edition LGA2011

Level 7
Cpu - Intel 4820k
Ram - G. Skill 2x4gb pc3 1600
Antec 900 (terrible choice with this motherboard and sideways sata inputs)
Samsung 840 Pro 256gb ssd
9 x 4tb WD installed (16 More to put in, probably via NAS)
2x Radeon 290 X
Antec 900w HCG PSU

So tired of this thing already. The onboard sound card made my headphones start smoking earlier.

Everytime I boot the pc It says 1 of 2 things. CPU Fan failure or Overclocking Failed. I'm not overclocking and my fan has not failed, this board has.

My fans RPM goes down automatically when under a certain Temp, right now im at 19C idle. so the fans RPM is around 600.



I've reinstalled windows several times due to blue screens or start up failure. (Legal version of windows I purchased.)

What the **** is wrong with this board.

I have about 29 unidentified drivers in device manager, and I've installed every driver asus has listed.

First I would ensure that your system is actually stable. You say you are not overclocking but does that include your memory? Your memory should be supported as is by default. It may be a good idea to check out your memory and run Memtest86+ as per the guide in my sig. You never know you may have a duff stick of ram.

One other thing could you please test your system with only one VGA fitted. Leave it in but remove the PSU connectors to the second card.

I assume you have all the 12v EPS PSU connectors fitted just check that both are firmly seated often this is a hidden cause for much instability even at stock.

In your bios you need to go and set your lower threshold for your CPU fan. The default is too high for the low RPM fan you are using.

And lastly it may be you have a bit of corrupted code in your bios, your board has two bios chips. Switch over to the second bios and see if the issue is still there.

Please do report back indicating what you tried and the outcome.
To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

First of all (just to be sure) There are 2 CPU Fan headers CPU and CPU_OPT ... Check if your using the CPU Header and not the CPU_OPT Since that might give you the CPU Error
Also Check in the BIOS to see if your CPU Warning speed is set higher than the CPU FAN is running Default its set to 600 RPM and can not be set lower than 200 RPM

The unidentified drivers seem to look weird however if you installed only the drivers that came with the board (or downloaded from asus website)
Than I can tell you that some of ASUS there included software also has drivers that it installs (Like ASUS ROG Connect Plus and AI Suite 3)
Please install these to get the missing drivers

I took a card out and tried that, I also tried a different card (Asus direct cu radeon 7770)

I use both the cpu fan headers I have the noctua nh-d14 cooler.

I lost power last night due to a bad storm and it took me about 45minutes to get the pc to light back up, I had to keep clearing cmos over and over.

Ouch about the storm. Quick question did your system work correctly prior to the storm?

And a suggestion. Do you have a spare PSU or a PSU you could borrow to test with. Often when there is a power surge the PSU gets messed up.

The problems were before the storm and nothing changed after the storm.
