Re: 5950x WHEA erros GGGRRRRRRHHHHHH had enough now.

What is different about your post of this error and the others already posted? Are you expecting different answers? You can post  as much as you want here to your limited audience or you can do what is required to bring the issue to a department that can do something about it. Not only that, you can furnish the support link to the people you say are experiencing this very issue.

Sending a report is not a invitation to a two way conversation with AMD.

One report from one person does not cause any excitement ...don't assume everyone else sent one in.

Re: 5950x WHEA erros GGGRRRRRRHHHHHH had enough now.

Same issue on my end. Im fed up.

 

I am able to disable CPB and all core overclock in order to run at least, but this is not what I paid for

Re: 5950x WHEA erros GGGRRRRRRHHHHHH had enough now.

True the more that Users open an AMD Support ticket concerning the same issue on similar processors AMD would try to duplicate the problem to see what is going on.

But if they don't get enough Users to open tickets it might make it harder for them to try and duplicate the issue on different computer setups.

It could just be a simple BIOS update to fix the issue but AMD first needs to duplicate the problem.

Besides, in my opinion, when AMD Warranty gets an unusually high RMA for a specific processor or family they will check it out and investigate to see what is common in all the returned processors and hopefully issue an fix either through BIOS or CHIP SET.

Also if the Moderators sees a pattern or unusual high amount of threads concerning the same or similar issue they will probably notify the appropriate AMD dept and see if they are aware of the problem.

Re: 5950x WHEA erros GGGRRRRRRHHHHHH had enough now.

I would like to add to my original statement that i have installed windows 5 times in a day trying to see if its the way i installed windows. the latest version of win 10 pro 20H2 was used.

 

Chipset drivers from M/B web site, Chipset drivers direct from AMD, with different GFX drivers, also used 3 different makes of M2 drives. also tried direct to SSD drive. No combination of install stopped the WHEA errors. even tried 2 different 5950x CPU's with fresh install's of win 10. The 2 x 5950x CPU's could not even run identically at default. with one CPU crashing with WHEA twice as often and could not get various memory kits to run the same on both CPU's.

This fact that 2 x 5950x CPU's could not run the same at default was the reason i gave up even trying any more. How is a motherboard manufacture going to produce a bios that will suit all CPU's if they cant run at default level. We expect that CPU's might OC differently because of the silicone lottery, but they should all be able to run at default. 

From what i have read over this frustrating period has highlighted one thing, M/B makers have produced many beta bios looking for the answer's on all boards, some people report one bios better for there CPU and for another its the opposite its worse. At first i thought user error how can 1 bios work better for one and worse for another using the same CPU.

Well after my experience using 2 x 5950x cpu's  i can say i know why, they don't all behave the same. 

 

But on a brighter note i built my new 10900k system yesterday, which was painless and is now running with out error's and apart from the slower workload ability's its been solid. as for any gamers its not slower either. For most user's they dont want problems and do not want to be diving into a bios looking to problem solve. All CPU's should be plug and play and i can see AMD system builders having many machines back to sort out if they can. 

 

its a shame as it seems some have no problems or loyal AMD fans wont admit any problems to protect the brand. I really wanted the 5950x to shine in my work environment, but i am also so very pleased i didn't invest totally and tested first.

I hope AMD can sort it out either way as when working as they should be i have no doubt they are fast and productive. like all big company's it will take a hit on there bottom line or increasing frustration and complaints by many people that will make them look into the issue's people are having. 

And to finish off my friends AMD 5950x is on its way for RMA as that chip was worse than mine. My 5950x sits waiting for a miracle bios or update from AMD to function as advertised. i have until the end of jan to return for a full refund. until then user's on many boards will await updates to cure the 5950X experience. the clock is ticking!

 

Good luck to all, with a merry Xmas  and happy new year!

C
ount me out of that thanks.
I will let others speak for themselves. 

Did you open an email support case?

Thanks.

I am not posting anything different it seems from many others around the internet on many forums, I am posting my experience after switching from intel to AMD for the great Ryzen experience, which so far has been the worst experience in many years of building PC's.  

I am also not AMD's personal link provider to all the problems people are experiencing with there products. What i wanted was a product which offered what was shown in AMD's launch. A CPU which performed out of the box on AMD X570 supported motherboard hardware.

You can surf the internet providing links for AMD if you wish but I am done with this product, My experience of this product should never have happened if the back up to M/B makers from AMD was ready for the new Ryzen 5000 series of CPU's if in fact its not a production issue that the variance between 2 5950x cpu's can be so great. and having had 2 5950x cpu's i can tell you they are no where near equal. As stated before how can a board maker cover a bios to suit such variance in quality. 

I have invested in a product which not only fails in its basic operation at default, but even if you know your way around a bios which many don't make it still unstable at stock. 

Its in AMD's interest to search for any issue's online and believe me if they looked they would find plenty to read. Like all big corporations the bottom line is what counts and they wont care to look until that is hurt.

The general consensus from many hardware boards and forums is Ryzen 5000 hard work to stabilize 100% and in business or home desktop environments this is not what the experience should be like for many user's who have switched from a stable system.

As stated before its a shame as the potential is there, but not when 2 X 5950x CPU's cant behave in the same board in the same way using the same DDR4 X 3 sets with many beta bios release's. You would think they were totally different variants of CPU. Just not good enough for any kind of consistency of performance be it silicone based or chipset support based.

As already stated the AMD setup sits in its case ready for the miracle bios or update which will allow it to run at stock speeds with out self rebooting and WHEA errors and instability.

I put together a bunch of related links to this issue in Reddit. I hope someone up there pays attention.

This sounds like lack of voltage through the board, system agent voltage or similar.

I had WHEA BSOD but fixed it with SSA and CPU base voltages, disable all power saving modes in BIOS.

Put all values back to stock, and overvolt these parameters, benchmark and monitor the voltage.

Re: 5950x WHEA erros GGGRRRRRRHHHHHH had enough now.

Hi,

I wait for my build from PCSpecialist with 5900X and Crosshair VIII Hero.

if I’d read all these posts before, I would  have sticked to Intel and wait for 11900K.

here is a link from OCN :

https://www.overclock.net/threads/replaced-3950x-with-5950x-whea-and-reboots.1774627/page-26#post-28...

AMD, when do you plan to communicate on all these issues that your customers can experiment ?

if not, believe me, you will see some poor turnover figures for your next Ryzen range.

I know a lot of people who stopped their project to build a Ryzen 5000 and wait for 11900k from Intel.

 

AMD, please, communicate to what happens exactly on your chip qualities.
