 Intel X99 Motherboard Goes Up in Smoke For Reasons Unknown  - Intel X99 Motherboard Goes Up in Smoke For Reasons Unknown
Fri, Jan 02 2015 | 9:02AM | Filed under: Editorial| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Nearly two months ago Legit Reviews had an ASUS X99 Deluxe motherboard fail and it fried our Intel Core i7-5960X. We didn't promote the story, but we posted up a one page article about what happened and vowed to cover the story to the very end. After hundreds of e-mails and phone calls we have learned that issues have been discovered and that fixes have been made to prevent others from having failures such as this. Along the way we learned a good deal as we uncovered a power supply firmware update that was never made public, what voltages are safe for DDR4 memory and a number of other things. Read on to see what happened to our board and what you should do if you happen to own this board. Now that there is a solution we'll go ahead and send out the story!
