yes, 2012. As a drawback, you may encounter some compatibility issues with RAM modules. However, ASUS incorrectly configures RAM when you activate XMP. I contacted G.Skill to get their opinion, and even they criticized ASUS's values. My RAM was running at 1.35V (IA OC Asus...), and G.Skill advised me not to exceed 1.2V, which I followed, and it works perfectly well and runs cooler.
In short, all of this is to say that aside from the RAM, which I recommend manually configuring, I haven't experienced any other drawback
Can you clarify what you mean here?
GSKILL advised that you run your memory at 1.2v - Which rails is this comment referring to and how does it pertain to ASUS AI OC?
Also can you explain why if ASUS is offering a setting to switch CPU ucode which helps with reducing temperatures why this is a bad thing?
Was doing some additional testing yesterday and today and noticed that even with the old microcode I am getting no differences in the temps, in fact they were almost exactly the same (maybe 1 degree difference, would have to do additional tests to confirm).
I have been able to undervolt by 0.14 maintaining a stable system, but this also seems to be yet another thing that unfortunately has not had any noticeable impact on the temp results. In Cinebench I am getting a variation of 2-3k points depending on used microcode, MCE setting, and amount of undervolt, but temps stay the same.
Expecting to get another AIO early next week, and will report back with results.
