HI, I just finished an install of a Z490-f and am trying to get a stable OC/temp setup for everyday use at 5100mhz
Some confusing things the board is reporting - Prediction calculations:
SP - 63, Cooler 154. So it appears I have an average CPU. But, for it to reach 5100mhz nonAVX, it's telling me to set 1.48v @L4.
How can that be right? Voltage seems too high.
In experimenting, the board is in default settings with the exception of:
XMP II (gSkill Trident Z DDR4 3200 /32G) - stable
Sync all cores - 51
LLC - Level 4
Min/Max Cache Ring - 45/47
BCLK Aware Adaptive Voltage - Disabled
CPU Voltage - Manual
Override - 1.4
I'm able to maintain 5.1 but the cpu is idling at 50c, 90+c under load and getting some thermal throttling.
I'd like to use Adaptive voltage, but having some issues setting this properly
Assuming the other settings above,
CPU Voltage - Adaptive
Offset Mode +
Additional Turbo Mode Voltage- 1.27
Offset - 0.1
(total voltage - 1.37)
So, when windows boots, I'm looking in HWINFO - CPU Core VID is 1.58 on all cores, VCore is 1.59.
Something isn't set right - any assistance would be appreciated, thanks

Hello, can I ask why you're using a positive offset? (+)?
If setting the desired value in Additional Turbo Voltage is above the minimum VID, there is no need to apply an offset as this is not true adaptive mode. If the desired voltage is below the minimum VID for a given ratio, a negative offset need be applied.
However, please note that the offset mode is subtracted from the entire VID stack, so will also impact idle voltage and is not a true adaptive voltage.

I just want to add that anything IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve put in to adaptive setting it gets overridden by the Ai prediction suggested settings. So no matter if IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve left the offset alone or negative or positive. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve tried everything, the only time adaptive works is if I set my core ratio to a lower ratio such as x49 which only requires 1.3v or below then itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll behave. That still means I still have to adhere to the ai rules. It just wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t let me set my own desired voltage for adaptive. Manual voltage all works fine though.Ã‚*

Let me preface that this cpu isn't a great overclocker and I don't need it to overclock in the traditional sense. I just want it to remain at 4.9 when under load without throttling downward to 4.2 or whatever lower clocks it goes to when thermals are over 70. I also want it to turbo as marketed.
