Do you mean when set AI Overclocking to AI optimized in bios, it shows x54/x43 multipliers on the P/E cores but it never exceeds x52/x38?
How do you check the actual multipliers?
If you restore bios to all default settings and only set AI Overclocking to AI optimized in bios, is it the same?
For NVMEs, which M.2 slots do you install the SSDs in?
If you change the disappeared SSD to other M.2 slot, does it show in windows?
May I have the bios version?
It is bios version 0803, the newest. I can assure you the bios has been reset to defaults many, many times and yes, it remains the same. I'm checking the multipliers inside windows with CPUID HWMONITOR, so I know it is correct. It's also plain as day even if you were to only look at the task manager that never exceeds 5.2GHz even under torture tests, however that only provides one core reading, not including the E-cores.
As for the NVMEs. There are 4 NVMEs and 4 slots, so all of them. It does not matter which ones go in which slots, it will only recognise 3. If I change the PCI-E distro mode to the only other choice, then 2 drives disappear. Changing the recognition mode from Auto->SATA->PCIE makes no difference. From what I can see right now, If I want to get my 4th drive back, I need to put my GPU in the top slot, which I can't do since ASUS made the motherboard cooler so big that it blocks anything with a larger backplate from fitting in the slot and ASUS didn't give us any other PCI-E slots to work with other than the very bottom one, so here we are.
