The Intel Core i7 5960X Continues Running Great On Linux

For those able to spend $1000+ (USD) on a processor, the Intel Core i7 5960X is a fantastic offering that is still leaving me pleased with the performance after extensive Linux testing. After the initial X99 motherboard failure, everything has been working fine with a different motherboard. Aside from Legit Reviews' motherboard also failing, I haven't heard of any other X99 issues from others so it looks like it could be an isolated incident. However, the root cause still appears to have been undetermined. I'm still waiting for MSI on a direct update to the matter but over in Taiwan, MSI reportedly told one of my SilverStone contacts that the Raven RV05 fan is faulty and caused the problem (though the case/fan works fine with a different motherboard and SilverStone has received no reports of other Raven RV05 issues in the few months that the chassis has been on the market). I also heard that Kingston ended up lowering their DDR4 voltages on the memory kit that was supplied to Legit Reviews; their DDR4 kit is now rated for 1.35V instead of 1.5V. In regards to the ASUS X99 motherboard failure, I haven't heard anything new but just a rumor of a bad soldering job. Anyhow, it fortunately looks like no widespread problems but just some isolated incidents. Read more
