ROG Strix X570-i motherboard now has 3 dead USB-A ports on the back. Super dope because now I'm actually out of USB ports.

Going to see if I can parlay this into a X670e-i + 7x00X3D upgrade with the wife :rofl:

This is probably going to be a "yeah duh u dummy" comment, but in case anyone doesn't know:

When setting up a home network, split out your wifi bands if you can (e.g. ssidname, ssidname-24) so that the 5GHz and 2.4GHz networks are separate.
Setup all of your non-high speed/high bandwidth devices on the 2.4GHz -- for things like HomePods you have to be connected to the 2.4GHz network on the device setting it up to do this.
Put everything else high speed on the 5GHz network.

I dramatically underestimated the effect of noise on speed/latency. I have 3 HomePod Minis, 1 HomePod, 2 wifi smart lightbulbs, 2 Dyson air purifiers, and 2 smartplugs in a large house with 2 Asus GT-6 wifi mesh routers. Devices were fairly evenly split between them and those IoT devices basically never do much data transfer, but just their connection alone degraded 5GHz band performance significantly.

With all of those low-speed devices on 5GHz, I was getting 400-450Mbps down and 60ms+ latency in speed tests while sitting in front of the router.
With all of those low-speed devices on 2.4Gz, I was getting 650-700Mbps down and 20ms- latency.
I got like 30+ devices and get 10-20ms latency, you have OFMDA and MUMIMO turned on?

Have you tried changing BIOS versions or updating drivers to see if they come back?

Yup. Nothing software-wise seems to help.

I saw one ASUS thread where the guy discovered that his AIO which plugged to an internal USB header was causing the issue. I'm wondering if that's causing mine too.

Hmm, that's interesting, definitely worth testing.

you did it right. Yeah I want 64GB. At 32GB my memory usage was sitting at 50% just running chrome & discord. Shoulda went 2x32GB but too late to turn back now.

I noticed some unity inefficiencies with texture caching for 3d stuff was gobbling my 32gb and was kinda bummed I couldn't just add 2 more of the same 6400 :hsd:

Wonder if it's all boards or just those at my level (msi pro-a)?

Ran memtest86+ over lunch ... didn't come close to 1 pass... guess I'll run it over night

Also nice that all four chips are indeed the same die :cool:

all boards. it's a z790 issue, not a board-specific issue. To save money you can probably buy something that's the same brand/timings but lower clock speed.
In my case, all my memory is rated for 6600Mhz but I'm running at 4800Mhz. I'll take the extra memory over the extra Mhz. But knowing what I know now, I obviously would rather have saved money & bought slower memory, or just went 32GB x 2.

MemTest86 is useless IMO. You'd need to do a hundred passes TBH.


Use this


Extreme by anta777 (recommended). Make sure to load the config. It should say 'Customize: Extreme1 @anta777' if loaded.

I had bad ram and memtest86 found errors pretty quick.

Hope this helps

Have you tried manually setting up the speed and timings?
