Bugs with probes reading (Asus Rampage VI Extreme)

Recommended Posts

Hello

With Rampage VI Extreme and System Stability Test, I have bugs with probes reading during the tests
As on the Screen, the temperature 1 indicated 201°C, but it is 24°C in reality
For VRM, I had the same thing, minimum temperature 1°C (
not visible on this screen)

And also, when I run the tests, Aida seems to be "blocked" after a few seconds and after 20 seconds to 1mn, it's good, the temperatures and voltages "vary" and the "Elapsed Time" goes

Thanks

The invalid temperature readings are usually caused by another monitoring tool colliding with AIDA64 about EC (Embedded Controller) register readout.  In your case the most likely candidate for such software is Asus' own monitoring application AI Suite.  Currently there's no 100% reliable way to fix it up.  So if you'd like to avoid such collisions, make sure to uninstall AI Suite, including its background services.

As for the half a minute freezing after you start a stress test session: it's caused by Windows kernel which can get quite slow and bumpy when an application tries to allocate a huge chunk of system memory.  And that's exactly what the memory subtest of AIDA64 System Stability Test initiates right after you press the Start button.  As soon as all the system memory is allocated by the AIDA64 stress test, Windows should return back to normal responsivity.  The duration of the "bumpy" phase depends on the amount of system RAM you have installed.

Ok for the "bumpy" phase after the start of tests
I never had this "problem" with the X99 (same amount of ram)

For the probes problem, I have never used and therefore installed AI Suite or other Asus software
During the test, only System Stability Test is open (no software in the background)

Thanks

The difference (between your X99 and X299 systems) might be the Windows 10 build.  In Windows 10 the higher the build number is, the slower some of the kernel calls get.  So allocating the same amount of RAM in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update could well be slower than what it used to be with Windows 10 Creators Update or Anniversary Update.

As for the EC register readout issues: do you have EC bank switching enabled in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Stability?

Ok for the version of Windows 10, I did not know
Yes I enable
EC bank switching

I guess then either the BIOS itself interferes sometimes with the EC register readout activity of AIDA64, or the EC sometimes becomes slightly unstable in providing the right register values.  Old older motherboards we've seen EC communication issues when the system is under heavy load -- but no glitches when the computer is idle.

But with other monitoring software I do not have this problem
This is related to Aida64's stress test and its monitoring ?

I'd try to run another monitoring software and AIDA64 stress test in the same time, and see if the heavy stress makes the other software experience EC register readout glitches.  If yes, then it's a hardware issue, and not an AIDA64 related issue.

I had tested with SIV launched at the same time as the stress test of Aida64 (more information on consumptions, etc ...) and no weird temperature/voltage with SIV ;)
