Hello Lentalsoup, I would like to inform you that this hardware combination is not compatible. The Intel DX79SR motherboard does not support the I7-4930K processor. The following link will show that information. http://processormatch.intel.com/compdb/SearchResult.aspx?ProcNbr=I7-4930K&BoardName=DX79SR&Lang=en-US
Here is the list of compatible processors. http://processormatch.intel.com/compdb/SearchResult.aspx?BoardName=DX79SR&Lang=en-US
In addition to that, please remember that all our processors support memory speed up to 1600 GHz. So even though the motherboard supports higher memory speed, I recommend you to use compatible memory and avoid over clocking the CPU.
I have the same trouble. Should I wait for BIOS update or there is no chance for DX79SR + 4930K to work together? I'm curious, why ASUS motherboards on X79 chipset are compatible with 4930K unlike DX79SR.
Found here info about this case:
If you had the misfortune to purchase an Intel DX79SI, DX79SR or DX79TO (boards that retailed for between $219 and $319), you don't get to upgrade.
When Intel announced it would kill off its motherboard division earlier this year, it was understood that this meant the company wouldn't be building new motherboards for its own chipsets. The company neglected to mention that this also meant it would immediately dump all support for its enthusiast products, including refusing to provide a minor microcode BIOS update. Typically, adding support for a new processor is a relatively simple affair, particularly when the new chip doesn't introduce new features, core counts, instruction sets, or operating parameters.
is this true?
