What do you mean "cpu is set to auto"?
Intel i9 10850K@ 5.3GHz
ASUS ROG Strix Z490-E
Corsair H115i Pro XT
G.Skill TridentZ@ 3600MHz CL14 2x16GB
EVGA RTX 3090 Ti FWT3 Ultra
OS: WD Black SN850 1TB NVMe M.2
Storage: WD Blue SN550 2TB NVMe M.2
EVGA SuperNova 1200 P2
ASUS ROG Strix Helios GX601

it's a typo my bad ..

Change your cpu llc to level 5.

I believe Prime95 still uses AVX instructions, which will significantly boost CPU voltage automatically.
Most people here in the ROG forum use RealBench stress test for up to 1 hour.

Like mentioned above, set LLC to level 5 and run RealBench, you should see a big improvement.

k , ill do this in a few minutes , I did change my setup to XMP so so much more stable , for me the ram was being a pain in the ass , with XMP was able to have everything stable , but voltage constantly running at 1.44 voltage ...

yes that setting fixed it , running manual at 1.390 now , thanks

What you do is overclock and tweak with Manual voltage. Once you have found the voltage you need to achieve stability for your overclock, you can then change to Adaptive voltage.
