in the dark photo the memory has been adjusted to lower voltages from the memory controller (CPU VDDIO/MC) and the VSOC. Notice in the clear photo that these same voltage options were very high, as it is the BIOS standard. So, these very high values were causing instability and screen freezing on my computer, but by reducing these voltages, stability improved and it was possible to reduce memory timing. ASUS urgently needs to pay attention to these and other unnecessarily high voltages, because it can cause damage to the processors and it's ASUS's fault.
DEFAULT HIGH VOLTAGE:
MANUAL LOW VOLTAGE:
Auto rules are always designed to account for poor-quality CPU silicon. Some CPUs will need more than this. Moreover, AMD sets the voltage limit in AGESA, with the recent amendments being from 1.4v to 1.3v, so this is still below the adjusted recommended limited (1.265v)
It's also important to understand that these signal rails are lateral in terms of where stability is found. Certain CPUs and memory kits will prefer less voltage than others. The window for stability can also become narrower the closer we are to platform limits.
Please note that the software readings for the Super IO on the Strix reads higher than what the CPU receives as the board uses socket sense measurement. The only software sensor in HWINFO you should pay attention to [for VSOC] is CPU VDDCR_SoC which is listed under SVI3 telemetry - anything else can be ignored. The SVI3 is AMD's own internal telemetry and can also be monitored from Ryzen Master.
