    Okay, so the M11 series no longer has a connection for the OC Panel. Instead, it connects to "ASUS NODE Hardware Control Interface." So what is this? A new hardware item like the OC Panel? ...

    OCCT is a more stringent test than Realbench. The voltage difference you needed agrees fairly well with my experience. Cinebench is not as good as Realbench. My current 24/7 CPU passed a long...

    You don't list a model of motherboard, so I'll try to answer generally.

    ASUS ROG motherboards have LLC selections, most often in a Power Control sub-window. The choices are usually numbered from...

    First, the XMP profile is actually overclocking. The JEDEC settings in the CPU-Z pictures are the "normal" or "guaranteed" speeds. It's real easy to call up XMP and enjoy a good overclocked...

    The combination of RAM, CPU, PCH, motherboard layout and voltage settings has to be right to get RAM to run over about 4000MHz. There can be a sweet spot for Vccio and Vccsa and I suspect 1.4v is...

    ASUS, and the other motherboard makers, set up their automatic profiles to be darn sure your rig works. The voltages are set to work with as many CPUs as possible. As a result, voltages like Vccio...

    The 00 code usually means a totally dead system. Power is getting to the motherboard to light up the 00. Otherwise, it sounds like the CPU is not working at all.

    To be sure, you need to plug in...

    In general, rising motherboard and SSD temperatures in Aida64 indicate rising ambient. The change to exhaust fans helped that quite a bit, so it was worth the effort.

    Try it.

    Disable those services, don't delete them, one at a time so you know which one is at fault if things quit. If you really do need one of them, you can reset it to automatic.

    Controlling radiator fans by water temperature works like a champ - my 24/7 rig does that. No unneeded whoosh every time CPU load steps up.

    Any 10K-ohm temperature sensor will work. There are...

    Did you monitor temperatures and clock rates during the lower score run? All CPUs have temperature throttling and power limits, and the high core count i9s are especially sensitive. Removing extra...

    In competitive benching, 90+C is sometimes necessary for very short peaks of the hottest tests -- XTU, y-Cruncher and some others that use AVX. An 'everyday' load like Realbench tries to present...

    Okay, here's some spam.

    Good luck using a profile that works on another CPU. They're all different. The most likely case is that you will have insufficient core voltage and crash often. It's...

    Hi, Pettytheft and welcome

    The 24-pin and 8-pin CPU power cables provide one important function even when the PC is not running. They keep the motherboard grounded through the PSU to the case. ...

    It's tough to diagnose remotely, but there are some clues. I had the same symptoms on a M6F a while back. I think a shorted VRM that is supplied by the 6-pin CPU connector is tripping the PSU...

    Hi and welcome, kappisto

    That CPU can probably do another step to 5.0GHz, but think about whether you want to. The 'sweetspot' for a continuous duty overclock is the point just before the next...

    Does this BIOS have mitigation for Spectre and Meltdown? If so, and there really is a 12-15% execution slowdown, PCIe lanes may not be the only hit.

    Yes, the LN2 mode jumper has to be enabled for the slow mode switch to do anything.

    When LN2 mode is enabled, turning on that switch throttles the CPU to run at a minimum speed - 800 to 1200 MHz...

    Usually in the Maximus line, Extreme and Formula share a more OC-capable BIOS and are therefore enough better than the Hero/Code to warrant the higher price tag.

    The way to spot the 'limit', actually the point of diminishing returns, is by the increase in Vcore it takes to run the next step higher clock. Over much of the OC range, a step of clock takes a...
