Z790-e gaming wifi ii pl1 pl2 power settings

Hi, 

Where in the bios are PL1 & PL2 settings please?

I went crazy & went for an i9-14900K and for now at least wish to keep the power draw at lintels stock settings, but understand that most MB settings are set to Performance or Extreme?

So where in the BIOS are the settings for that, and what do they need to be set to?

Thanks

Hi @lawrencewilliam 

If not wanting to exceed Intel's defined TDP you can set MCE to off.

Package draw power limitations can also be manually defined in Extreme Tweaker > Internal Power Management menu, as well as the Short Duration time window.

@Silent_Scone  Those were the two options that I read, thank you!

Which of the two would you say was the better options please?

For now all I want is to keep the best temp (as possible) easily, until I get to know the board and the CPU better?
I feel that I 'could' start with it set to on and see what the tempuraters are like, but we all know that the 14900K runs very hot, if I want to keep things safe at the start is it even worth starting with it on?

If looking to run as close to stock, simply disable MCE. This will limit the TPD cap as per Intel specification. Note that if running XMP, the total package draw will still be higher as the associated voltages need to be elevated - and you're not running at stock in this situation.

@Silent_Scone  thanks.
So disabling MCE and then enabling XMP would keep things as stock as possible?
(XMP extra power required is expected)

It has also been suggested to be to set SVID Behaviour (ASUS' preset undervolting): Advanced Mode > Ai/Extreme Tweaker > Intel's Fail Safe 
Configuration options: [Auto] [Best-Case Scenario] [Typical Scenario] [Worst-Case Scenario]
[Intel’s Fail Safe] [Trained] 

But I am reading that [Trained] may well be the best option for this?
Should I try that as well?
