ROG Zenith Extreme (X399, socket TR4) - info, experience, updates

AMD showed new highend chipset named AMD X399, this is specially for HEDT segment of CPUs. Many, many years AMD was not active in this segment. But the RED team is back!! The socket is named TR4, its version of the same size socket for servers, for AMD Epyc processors. This socket/LGA is huge, inside we can count crazy 4096 pins!! But not all these pins are electricaly active (its my idea, why Epyc cant work inside TR4)

CPUs Ryzen Threadrippers will be relase in configurations up to 16C/32T this summer.
Great bonus of this platform are numbers of PCIe 3.0 lines inside the CPU, which it offers 64! CPU and this board has support of quadchannel RAM DDR4 up to capacity 128 GB (I heard, in theory, this CPU can working with more)

MOTHERBOARD

Rights near RAM DIMM slots we can see special slot named DIMM M.2 slot. This special feature you can know from Maximus IX Apex. Its great value for NVMe M.2. Besided Threadripper has direct lines to CPU for NVMe, so lower latency 🙂 Two 8-pins for CPU is needed for serious OC and specially for LN2, switchs to PCIe slots, voltage measuring points, buttons start+reset and more. Example front USB3.1


SATAs and also U.2 port


In same wawe as Rampage X299, there is dash board for information about frequency, temperatures, speed of fan etc...Nice bonus is special LAN card ROG Aerion 10GB/s



Integrated IO shield, buttons for CLR CMOS, BIOS Flashback, backlighting of audio outputs, USB3, USB3.1 and looking at the Wi-Fi! This Wi-Fi support last standard 802.11ad!

At the board are features for driving your fans, cooling, include wattercooling and of course, dont forget at RGB AURA/AURA Sync or 3D print supopor.
Im looking forward sooooo muuuuch and promise, LN2 OC results coming 🙂

There are problems with the New Cpu sensor, the temperature incrased and are not stabile, do you know something?

Updated to 0601 without issues.
-Noticed UEFI bios, OLED changed to CPU package temps I think, AIDA64 also show this on CPU.
-9910 and 0601 not seen any odd sensor spikes on these, at least not so far.
-Extreme Memory phase control now have similar performance as Optimized.

UEFI 9960 based on 0601:
Automatically applies a 2T Command Rate for 2DPC configs when above DDR4-2820.

Updated to 9960 without issues. 🙂
-I still get 1T Command rate even thou memory running at 3200, tested both manual and D.O.C.P with Command Rate set to Auto.
-Same behavior and performance as 9910 and 0601 like I posted earlier.

I know Asus have lots to do at the moment, thank you for frequent updates. ^^

That should have read 2DPC when above 2820. My bad.

No worries:)

X399 gets NVMe Raid Support September 25th^^

Hello All!

I just built a brand new Ryzen Threadripper 1950X / ROG Zenith Extreme system and I seem to be having trouble booting with my memory.

I have a 32GB Quad Channel G.Skill TridentZ DDR4 3200Mhz (RGB) memory kit with 4 identical DIMMs.

Per the motherboard manual, I populated slots A1, B1, C1, D1

The system will only post when memory is in B1 and/or B2.

Memory in just B1: Posts
Memory in Just B2: Will not post
Memory in B1+B2: Posts

When the system doesn't post, it just loops: power on, shut down, power on, shut down, etc.

I'm running the latest BIOS available (0601). I would appreciate any thoughts on how to get this resolved.

A friend of mine is running this exact same setup (Zenith / 1950x / G.Skill 3200) and he has no issues posting.

Would appreciate any insight/thoughts!

So one in A1 won´t post, but one in B1 works fine?
Order from left to right is D1, C1, A1, B1.
Either way I would start test each one in the working slot by themselves.
To make sure the kit is ok, if it is I would consider contacting support.

Maybe your friend could test the kit for you too, if he live close enough.
Could help speed things up.

I have a 32GB Trident Z RGB 3200MHz CL14 kit too "F4-3200-C14Q-32GTZR"
and it also posted without issues.

@Mikan02

I've tried each stick individually, boots fine. I'll reach out to support because at this point I am out of ideas.

New Board, same issue, I'm completely dumbfounded here.
