Overclock in adaptice mode BIOS version 1904

Hello guys.

I just updated to the latest BIOS-version (1904)for my ASUS Z170 PRO GAMING motherboard. I have overclocked my cpu 6700k to 4.6 GHz with 1.29 volts. It works fine and is stable,
But after i updated to 1904, the volt is constant on 1.29 volt.. Like it was set to manual mode. The motherboard shipped with bios-version 1805, and then the volt went down to 0.8 ish when idle. But now it is just constant on 1.29 volts.

Anybody know why this is? Is this a wierd bug or should i be that way?

Thanks guys! ❤️

Best regards,
Johan

Hi tjocktjock

Welcome to the ROG forum.

Your cpu should be throttling to 800ish v in adaptive mode.

In the bios:

1) Make sue svid support is enabled on the extreme tweaker tab.
2) In the cpu configuration make sure speedstep and the c states are enabled.

In windows:

1) Make sure the windows power plan is set to balanced.

Does this get your cpu throttling to .800ish v?

If not, clearing the cmos or resetting to defaults should get it back to throttling.

Hello Nate.. thank you very much for the quick reply. I had high performance on in windows and balanced did the job.. thank you.. Now i feel a little stupid also 🙂

But isnt it recomended using high performance to get optimal performance? For gaming and such. Will i lose some performance for doing so? Probably not right.

Thanks again. 🙂

And another thing i was wondering. I had some problems with XMP. Sometimes the computer didnt start when XMP was enabled. I found this thread http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=149795 and alot of people where having the same issues with Corsair memory on this ASUS board.
The way of fixing it for me and alot of people was bumping up the DRAM VOLTAGE from 1.35 to 1.37. And using 1.2volt on VCCIO and SA Agent.. I was wondering if that is safe for the board? The increase from 1.35volt to 1.37 on DRAM. and from 1.1 to 1.2 on SA and VCCIO.

Other than that, i am very happy like always from buying ASUS products 🙂

You're welcome

In answer to your first question, as along as your cpu is ramping up to the boost clock you're not losing any performance.

You're voltages are fine and safe, if it's stable with good temps go with it. 🙂

Awesome.. Thank you very much! ❤️
