Hi all, I new to this Asus Bios.. I have a Rampage IV Formula, what are the benefits by setting the power to optimized mode? Is normal mode better? Im running 3 gtx 570s...32 gb Dominator Plat, Intel 3930k, AX 1200i psu...

if I understood it correctly this is the power control to the CPU over the VRM....Normal mode the board fires up however many of the blocks that make up the VRM as it needs.....for example low power might pass through 2 blocks the rest off ....high power maybe through all blocks but 2 or three at full whack the rest half whack etc. Optimized keeps all the blocks passing power with the levels adjusting up and down all at same level across all blocks. Extreme I think was all blocks used at all times across the VRM.... most heat!


Hmm..almost but not quite, entirely unlike what I said 😉

You'll noticeable that CPU require lower VCore than normal setting. 😛
