Z790 ROG STRIX E intel i7-13700kf ai overclock heat issue

I upgraded mono and cases from the hyte 40 and mid pro z790- p WiFi to the nxzt H9 Flow looks are stunning. Soon as I turn on the AI overclock feature I get a cooler score of 160 and tunes my ratios 2 cores 59 rest 57. It get hot tjmax soon as cinbench 23 starts I got the aio kraken 360 elite rgb 9 Asia horse cosmiq fans 3 kraken rgb 120 on my push side of pump. Any idea what can do bring temps down and keep my ratios? New to all so any help is much needed

TRY THESE SIMPLE SETTINGS
* Make sure you're using the latest BIO's.
* Set BIO's to Default and restart your PC
* If using high speed RAM above stock speeds, use XMP II (follows intel's specs)
* Under Extreme Tweaker - ASUS MultiCore Enhancements, switch it from "Optimized" and to "Disabled - Enforce All Limits" (follows Intel's specs)
* Under Extreme Tweaker - SVID Behavior, switch if from "AUTO" to "Trained" (follows Intel's specs)

Then you can play with the Limits on each Core. 

After I've come across this, my CPU runs WAY COOLER, WAY LOWER VOLTAGES and same or better PERFORMANCE since it not being blasted by high voltages and overheating my CPU which now runs cooler never hitting the thermal limits. 

Many MB Manufacturers are overvolting the CPU's causing them not to be stable, overheating, and hitting limits.  Remember AMD's cpu exploding or bubbling up. They were overvolting them over the CPU specs to try to make them faster but it was damaging the CPU's. Same goes for intel's cpu.

Try to stay away from posting conjecture, nothing the board is doing is causing CPUs to fail.

There's nothing you can do anymore, because the AI overclocking means the CPU draws more power (PL1 and PL2 are probably at 4095 W, etc.) and then it gets really warm as soon as Cinebench is running.
It was the same for me and only a custom water cooling system can help, as an AiO 360 is already unable to cool it.
But it's also normal, because in Cinebench ALL cores are loaded to max., which rarely happens in "normal" everyday PC life.

In any case, first install the latest BIOS and then follow the points from @nick97229.

Otherwise, leave out the AI overclocking, the few more GHz won't do you much good.
I disabled it again and only turned on XMP. This keeps the CPU a little cooler.

Oh yes, the room where the PC is located shouldn't be warmer than 22 degrees, then the CPU stays a little cooler and doesn't reach Tjmax as quickly.

My advice, leave out the AI overclocking, set "Asus Multicore Enhancement" to "disabled - Forced all Limits" in the UEFI (this forces the Intel specifications, including PL1 and PL2). Make sure there is enough fresh air in the housing. The fan is installed at the front and sucks in, the fan at the back blows out of the case, the AiO is installed at the top and the fan also blows out of the case.
If the AiO is installed in the front, then also mount the fans into the housing so that they suck.
There's nothing more you can do with an AiO.

Hi @WOWurDead

1. Cooling seems to be an issue. Set Long and Short power durations between 250 - 300w.

2. You can also investigate the P-Core delta (use HWInfo), you might benefit from a contact frame if the IHS is concave.

3. Under AI Features, take note of the recommended Adaptive Voltage setting.

thanks for all the input you guys left I’m going to check into these see what can best keep my system stable and chilled… I’ve been having do lots of homework on all the bios settings what does what… so I’m basically unsure if can’t cause corrupt file or harm my pc so I’ve left things on auto in bios I see that if it’s up to the manufactures they let the bios tell what to deliver in it’s way too much. Can anyone help in explaining undervolting? Right now my 13700kf run all core 5.5 e core 4.3 boost turbo to 5.7 but hot end of where I would like it got the kraken elite aio. Great static 3000 rpm fans on the push side of aio and intake in bottom rgb 2000 rpm on inside display.
