    I have a similar issue to the OP. For whatever reason, my chassis fan 2 header starts spiraling out of control towards max speed as soon as its top temp threshold is reached. This, regardless of...

    I've been using Aura for over 6 months now, and these issues all still persist. No amount of clean installs of older versions will fix this:

    New version still uses enough of the CPU (around 3%) when the DRAM is connected to Aura that it prevents the CPU from stepping down to idle frequencies. Still have to leave DRAM disconnected on its...

    CPU usage with DRAM RGB enabled is still an issue on the most recent version. CPU usage jumps just high enough so that my CPU will never throttle down. From well under 1% with no DRAM, to 3% or so...

    I can confirm the same. If I uncheck the RAM in Aura Sync and let it continue to manage the rest of my RGB the CPU usage drops from 5-6% down to 1% or less, which is enough to let my CPU fully...

    I have never had icue installed. I only use Aura Sync, and only to control RGB on my RAM, MB, and addressable headers.

    LLC7 is fine. You only really need to be cautious about LLC8, and not at your voltages regardless. Even if you overshoot for a split second it won't be enough voltage to hurt anything. If your...

    Same as others, high CPU usage in dynamic lighting modes like rainbow. Around 6% at all times, which is a lot given how fast my CPU is. I have to turn it off in order to run benchmarks, or to just...

    Yeah all the dynamic lighting modes use a significant amount of CPU. On my overclocked 9900K @ 5.1GHz it uses around 6% CPU constantly. It's just enough to prevent my CPU from downclocking and...

    Yep, same on my Hero XI which has the same VRM. I mean it works fine, but the amount of droop at LLC7 is a little frustrating. I'm stable at 5.1GHz at 1.305v adaptive with AC & DC LL set to .01. ...

    Nice.

    I'm just finishing up my case wiring after getting my Hero today. Now I get to wait a few weeks for my CPU.

    Yeah, someone from Asus should really chime in here. These boards are being trashed as junk on reddit/youtube and it's probably costing them sales.

    Yeah no problem. Hopefully I'll have my board in a few hours and I can try to do some sort of PCB analysis on it. I'm not buildzoid, but I think I can google part numbers and figure out what goes...

    Wrong column, not that you'd know due to the language. The "8+4" is referring to the power connectors. The earlier column that says "4x2" is referring to the vcore config, and then there's another...

    I'm 99% sure based on multiple hands-on sources I've seen that it's effectively an 8+2 phase board. I believe the 8 core phases are a 4x2 config with doublers. This is similar to what Asus has used...

    Those boards are in a totally different class. The Gene is effectively a smaller Extreme. It has the same power delivery, which is superior to every other Asus board.
