    Thanks. Updated Z390-F from 0805 to 0903, no issues, same stability as before. Just to let everyone know.

    Yeah, for cha-fan all is ok. It's Pump and AIO which aren't working with the GUI application. Setting manually via entering the numbers does work though. Still, why? No such issues on the Strix...

    Small follow-up because I can't stop it, sorry. Maybe someone from Asus is reading along... ;)

    How about a Gene-like board, but without focus on benchtable/LN2 operation. What I mean by this, take...

    Well, thanks for posting this detailed comparison, interesting.
    One point though because you keep mentioning APEX's "extreme" VRM: You know that is kind of overkill is actually worse or at least not...

    I don't know which kind of adapter you mean, but if you've got one, then yes. Why not? Maybe just try it?
    Anyhow, you know that populating DIMM.2 slot puts the 16x PCI-E to 8x anyway? In the way the...
  6. Short review: Strix Z390-F vs. Maximus XI Gene

    Just a quick pro/con comparison on my part, having tested both boards extensively, maybe someone's interested. I certainly would have been, lol.

    Sorry? With solution you mean Asus Windows software?
    That's just a workaround really and as said, why not also make it available directly in UEFI? I don't understand what the problem is...

    Hmm, not much interest in this thread it seems, yet this is a very essential topic for CPU overclocking imo, esp. the AVX-offset thing.
    Some more testing on my part shows that XI Gene performs...

    Well, if the memory kit doesn't do the timings it's advertised, then why not?
    Or would you suggest it's a problem with the Apex? I actually doubt it...

    Edit: Ok, disregard. It's about the CPU not...

    Might be one of your memory modules is faulty. If possible, try to double-check on some other board, or test a 2x8GB config. The XMP default of 1.35V really should be fine for the rated frequency.

    It's just about the UEFI fan control "application", not some Asus Windows software. Possible that it can be set there, but many don't bother with installing this kind of software, at least I don't....

    Some quick info because I have extensively tested the Z390-F, esp. regarding memory overclocking.
    Just set everything manually and disable all that AI-stuff. The board works far better than I had...

    Joining the club. Asus please change the adjustable limit to at least 90C.

    I was irritated by this low limit from Z170 onwards and now on XI Gene and Z390 Strix-F it's still the same. Really...

    Ahh ok sorry, I might have misunderstood you then. My goal was to exploit power-limiting for stabilizing AVX offset transitions - or really any kind of clock transitions - in some way, and in that...

    Ok, short follow-up, I've tested power limiting AVX/FMA3 load a bit. I see 2 problems with it:

    1. The transition from the high multiplier towards the lower, power-throttled one is still occuring...

    Well, I guess just use Intel's own version then.


    Ahh ok, thanks, forgot about that.

    What exact settings are you running on the Hero to achieve the balance of AVX/non-AVX?

    The tool is called Intel XTU, "Intel Extreme Tuning Utility" and can be downloaded from Intel's website.
