In any case when you solve that i would like to see your temperatures.
OK, I got the board and CPU used, and the board was overclocking the CPU to 4.6GHz. with a lot of extra voltage. The system was stuck on 4.6GHz. and was being cooled fine until it was stressed.
Then it got up to 100C right away on two cores. At this time, I was holding my hand right next to the rear exhaust fan and the air blowing through the cooler was pretty cool. The only thing that was getting hot was the PSU.
My resetting the BIOS didn't return anything to stock settings, even though it ~said~ that it was. (3.3GHz.)
I finally went to MSI's site and got the latest BIOS for it. That didn't help it.
It wasn't until I got and flashed the 1.21 BIOS to the board that I was able to configure settings on it.
I set everything on stock and it runs fine. Temps are managed properly now. The Coolermaster Master Air Maker-8 handles the 140W TDP of this i9-7900X perfectly.
It's still very quick for a guy who only had an i7-6850K in this case before. (that was pretty quick too) I like it.
