    This most likely means you are trying to control DC pump by fan header set to PWM.

    Make sure fan header correctly set to DC or PWM (whatever your pump requires) in the BIOS since Argus will not...

    Not sure, if extension card will work - guess it depends how its implemented and if Argus supports it. No harm in trying.
    I also have this spare "aux" fan which not connected to everything - it may...

    CPU_OPT header is electrically connected to CPU_Fan, they are on same Fan channel signal and basically an on-board splitter.
    It's not possible to control them independently.

    I am using Argus monitor on my Prime Z270-A. No problems whatsoever - the only software which allows to properly control some fans by maximum(GPU, CPU) temps and smooth out Kaby Lake temperature...

    Its just an arbitrary restriction by Asus, same as limiting curves to 75 degrees top. Here they've decided AIO header should be only controlled by CPU.

    It's not a hardware restriction - header...

    I am about that having certain microcode version and OS version + registry key may not be enough to actually have *working* side-channel protection, due to complex interplay of different parts...

    It does not check that uC is "patched". It simply relies on Intel-supplied information that uC version X should give protection against Spectre variants.
    It does not check uC more than just checking...

    inSpectre simply checks the microcode version and assumes that this version (e.g. anything above 0x70) will protect you (along with required registry/OS patches).
    It does not actually test that...

    Apparently there is a browser test - http://xlab.tencent.com/special/spectre/spectre_check.html

    But I think most of mainstream browsers already done own protection (which does not need microcode)....

    That's why I wonder are 0x84 actually doing anything ;)

    Do we have any kind of "spectre attack test" to verify that side-channel is actually prevented? Instead of relying on Intel word that it...

    It looks more like a core with max temperature to me, not average.


    I don't want "buffer" of 25 degrees. If some core spikes to 100 degrees, I prefer it to throttle momentarily until fan catches...

    Also, I have to add, even if there would be 10-15 degree offset to CPU temperature on some motherboard, this will place maximum around 85-90 degrees - which for me still will be not enough. I want...

    This is factually wrong at least for two different Z270 motherboards I've personally tested.

    Right at this moment I have Prime Z270-A running burn test with 7700K (BIOS 1009) and PECI reported CPU...

    Registered just to chip in, since I've bought an Asus Prime Z270A motherboard recently and was totally baffled when I saw this.


    This is not entirely accurate for modern mainboards. Intel got rid...
