    I have strange sleep issues or habbits. So I cover all hours it seems.
    Hum, Not sure exactly how to find the USB drive as it looks like it wants "fs0:" Type drive paths. I have so many drives it become confusing.

      Hum,
      Got a BIOS file saved out to a USB drive. But it is a txt file... ? Is that correct? I was also able to save it as a "CMO" file too. I think that is a BIOS load file?

      Got it! :-) All looks good on the save out and restore of BIOS...

      Thanks,
      LB

        The .CMO file has all the settings and can be reimported directly. Since those files are version specific, I tend to put them in folders with the number of the BIOS version they are taken from. Like

        ASUS ROG Maximus XI Gene > 0806 > S8B_DR_4000C16.CMO
        ASUS ROG Maximus XI Gene > 0903 > S8B_DR_4000C16.CMO
        ASUS ROG Maximus XI Gene > 0905 > S8B_DR_4133C17.CMO

        etc, you get the idea.

          Good plan! All set on that front.

          About to head out for a couple days of vacation... So it will be later Thursday my time till I get back to this. But while up on the island I will check out some of the bench mark tools you suggested.

          Sounds to me like you are in High Tech? I was, but have been retired for a few years now. Tech sure moves fast!

          Thanks so much!

            Hi,
            Would you happen to have a known good and safe link to TestMem5? Most of what I found had issues with my AV app. Did you see any problems in that area with TestMem5? I did find the most recent Anta777 config, I believe. Though I have to look and determine the version in relation to what is out there.

            Thanks,
            LB

              Get TestMem5 straight from the source: https://testmem.tz.ru/testmem5.htm

              When in doubt, always scan a download with virustotal:

              The configuration files are just plain text that you can safely C+P from anywhere. The most recent Anta777 is this one:

                Excellent!
                Thanks again... I will be back at it tomorrow and give this stuff a shot.

                I did try that link to Testmem5 prior and just now. Malware Bytes is flagging the site as malicious...

                Nice and quiet up here on the island. But no Internet, so I have to cell tether.

                Take care and thanks,
                LB

                  Back at it... Not a lot of good to report.

                  I did not have to run TestMem5 to find out the system is not stable. I did run an AIDA64 for a few minutes. But the temps were a bit much. They ranged up to 92C at peak. This is with a 280mm water cooler on the CPU. I would hope it does better than that, but no. At any rate using the same BIOS settings as the good Memtest86. When Windows is up for 6 hours or less, it gets a BSOD with a hardware looking related stop code.

                  I am going to work with 3600 and stock XMP II settings while lowering the CPU voltages to what you recommended and see what happens. Maybe if this thing will stabilize, then I can slowly step up to 3800 or 37xx.

                  Thanks,
                  LB

                    Update:
                    I loaded the XMP 3600 settings and ran Windows. It only went about 4 hours till a BSOD. Did some checking and found some issues on the BIOS, thinking I might go back to something earlier. There was some chatter via Google on one guy going with BIOS ver 606. That is really early, but he was sayin later versions had memory issues. However, though I was certain I had the latest BIOS, I did not. So I loaded it and have been up with stock 3600 XMP II settings with both SA & IO voltages set close to what you suggested, for about 36 hours. That is much better than I was doing. I will probably mem test this as is and go from there.

                    Any ideas on the CPU temps even though I have a 280mm water cooler? I would think I am shooting for the low 80C's at heavy loads on the CPU?

                    Thanks,
