Ok, my last Adaptative profile was stable.
But while I was trying to fix my incorrect readings in XTU, I stumbled upon LoadLineCalibration.
At first I thought it was variations of voltage curves. I thought this is what I need 🙂 !
So I ditched my adaptative setting and tried LLC 4 down to 1, each seemingly decreasing max temperature while remaining stable.
Right now I'm using LLC Level 1, I tried XTU bench and PC Mark 10 with success. Temperatures similar to my last adaptative setting, means 80°.
(I know now that LLC isn't what I thought it is)
I'm wondering if LLC was my problem with extreme temperatures all along. Some manufacturer gimmick with a wrong setting ?
By the way,
XTU showed my Vcore settings always correctly until it didn't.
Now I'm stuck with Core Voltage Mode "Adaptative", Core Voltage "Default", Core Voltage Offset "0.000V"...
Tried everything I could think of, as clean reinstall XTU as possible, reset Bios, reflash Bios, clear CMOS, tried to reinstall Intel ME.
Or did I burn something up ?
