I currently have some items set in my BIOS (non OC things). I have seen 2 video's and see that it is very simple to turn OC on.
They suggest to then do a stresstest. What if you are not happy with that result and want to go back to what you have before?
Is that also a button for that? Or do you need to save a profile and load that if you are not happy?
Either F5, load optimised defaults, which will completely reset the BIOS config; or use the BIOS profiles to save and load configs while experimenting. There is no undo type of operation after you save settings, just the profiles. You can also save the profiles to USB, to preserve them when flashing the BIOS or if you want to save your best/important config, etc.
Ok thanks. I had hoped UEFI (just like Intel Extreme Tuning Utility) allowed you to go back with the same button as you set the OC.
I have created 2 profiles (with XMP and without XMP) on the MOBO. As mentioned by Silicon_Scone, I got my PC preconfigured and there are more settings done in my BIOS. Since I don't know what exactly, I am hesitant do use CMOS (since my PC is running very stable now which an awesome base to start from).
I find that when I use Intel to overclock and stress test, my system is stable but thermal throttling becomes active. I understand that undervolting can help with that process.
It hasn't become any easier..... 🙂
On these boards AI OC rules are fairly tight, often it leaves little room for improvement doing things manually.
Of course, AI OC doesn't aid with memory overclocking. Are you experiencing instability when simply enabling XMP?
Of course this is not fo memory overclocking
A couple of tips for you which may help. Some settings where you can enter a value (or one is set by another function), you can type the value "Auto" to return it to the BIOS default. Second, you can find out what's changed vs. defaults by loading optimised defaults, but not hitting OK on the save and exit prompt. I.e. load defaults, select save, and you get a list of changes with an option to save or cancel; that list is all of your non-default settings. If there are a lot of changes, you can scroll through the list with the up and down arrow keys. Save your settings to a profile beforehand for safety, but just cancel saving the changes and use the other option to discard changes and exit.
Given your preoccupation earlier with not wanting to reset the UEFI for fear of losing something, your best bet is to use the OC Profile menu. However, when changing between configs it's best to first clear the UEFI. Use the Clear CMOS on the motherboard rear I/O to do so.
I noticed that my 12900K has a higher temperature when idle, when I test overclock via the Intel extreme tuning utility, it thermal throttles very frequently.
So I have another hurdle to take first and try to get that temperature down first.
If a repaste and remount doesn't solve it, consider using one of the contact frames available on the market to help with consistent mounting pressure.
I was looking into that 😀, the Thermal Grizzly seems to be popular. Does it work well with the Ryujin? Any suggestions?
