    LLC on auto gives really high vcore for some reason. Try setting it manually to 5 or 6. For me LLC at 6 worked ok at 1.350v, which ends up giving me between 1.344-1.360v. The same vcore on auto LLC...

    I've now opened tickets with both ASUS and Intel technical support. I guess I'll find out if either of them are able to give an actual direct answer. :)

    Well, ASUS should know some at least, based on components they use. And Intel should know about the CPU. I suppose I could write them directly instead.
  4. How far can I safely push VCCIO and VCCSA on the Maximus X Hero WIFI AC?

    And by safely I mean no real degrading over the next 5 years.

    System specs as listed in the postbit to the left.

    I currently have a stable 5.1GHz OC with RAM at 3466MHz. VCCSA manually set to ...

    Make sure you don't forget to set the load line calibration, like I did at one point :) But you are definitely temperature limited compared to my delidded chip.

    I currently have the RAM running...

    Yes, thank you, I saw that article a couple of days ago. Very nice. :)

    It's a shame they didn't also include the minimum FPS in games, since that's where the frequency has the biggest effect.

    Well dammit... Apparently I messed up the OC profiles or something, and the load line calibration I thought I had set manually was at Auto. That was a lot of testing at the wrong settings... Anyway,...
  8. 8700K OC on Maximus X Hero (Wifi) results, and a couple of questions

    The 8700K (batch number L729C232) has been delidded and Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut has been used both over and under the IHS. I have so far only focused on the CPU overclock, so the memory is still...

    Will we be getting a coffee lake guide any time soon? Or can the kaby lake guide be used with minor tweaks for coffee lake?

    I'll be getting my 8700K and Maximus X Hero WIFI AC tomorrow or the day...
  10. ASUS multicore enhancement is the turbo boost...

    ASUS multicore enhancement is the turbo boost feature we see on the ASUS boards I think?

    "Normal" overclocking is when you use "Sync all cores" and use the same multiplier (50 for example) for all...
  11. Has Per Core overclocking changed the last 5-6 years?

    The reason I'm asking is that I read something that made it sound like you could actually run, say, 6 cores all at 100% load at different clockspeeds.

    Back in my 2500k day it meant something quite...

    I ordered the parts at least. :D Well, the RAM I am still slightly undecided on. The NH-D15 is coming brand new, so I hope it fits..?

    The Z390 could very well be a year away though.

    Personally I'm on a 2500K @4.5GHz. It's still decent, but it's definitely starting to show its age, so I am not going to wait any longer :)

    Indeed. I ordered my CPU + Mobo 20 minutes past midnight on the 5th (CPU is still on backorder), and I am starting to wonder about the ASUS motherboard stock as well. The Maximus X Hero WI-FI AC I...

    Oh, yeah, I found the product page and the QVL, but I had to use google to find it. Asus' own internal search doesn't show the Maximus X Hero on the site for me, nor is it listed in the dropdown...

    Thank you both :)

    As usual it comes down to money vs speed I guess. 4x8 GB at 4000MHz is more expensive than 2x16, but has a better chance at higher speed. Or I could just go for one of the...
