    Just picked up this motherboard last week, it is a lot easier setup wise compared to the Gigabyte Aorus AX370 Gaming K7 I was using before. too many issues unresolved with Gigabyte's board, some hardware related. When they released their X470 board the specifications changed too much (downgraded IMO). Time to find a new board, this was the best choice I could afford not needing all the stuff on the Crosshair VII.

    Currently running BIOS 4011 and there are a few things I like and some that are still problems.

    I like the integrated heatsink for the M.2 drive. My NVMe boot drive is now running about 10° C cooler than in the K7. It also now boots everytime even on a reboot (the K7 had issues with the dirve on warm boots). I am using some older G.Skill Samsung B-die 3200 CAS14 DDR4, it is dual rank 16GB double-sided sticks for a total of 32 GB of RAM. The K7 will run it at 3000 Mhz on some BIOS's the Strix will run it at 3200 Mhz with no issues.

    A couple of things are still issues. The CPU voltage is insanely high (Ryzen 7 2700X), I have seen it as high as 1.6V on AUTO settings. I am using water-cooling with a custom loop using a 240 x 45 mm and 240 x 60 mm radiators with the CPU water block and GPU waterblock in behind each reservoir. So I am not really having any heat issues, but the voltage is just out of control. I am having a few issues with Aura and the LightingService conflicting with a few EAC protected games. My past experience with AI Suite have not been good, so this software has never been installed on this PC. I am hoping that Asus addresses these issues as generally I am happier with this board than the K7 it replaced.

    As bad as this sounds but, Kind of a relief to hear there is actually another board (x470) board out there worse than this one for issues.

    As for the voltage, by what I read you probably well beyond knowing this simple setting and have already done it, but just in case you can set a negative voltage offset.

    Yes I am experimenting with just how much negative offset I can use and still boot.

    By default, the krazen is set to silent mode for both fan speed and pump speed, and they are set to monitor the temperature of the liquid. Most users wld set them to monitor cpu temp. Try giving a tick to that auto startup when window launches, do you have window crashes for the subsequent boot ups?

    Lovely hardware. The BIOS is a pain in the neck however.
    I moved my Ryzen 5 1600 and Hynix AFR memory to this board after my old MSI B350 board kept trying to cook itself running at 3.9 Ghz on the CPU and 2933 memory. I then find I can't manage to equal those settings on far superior hardware. DOCP just plain won't boot, and even throwing maximum safe voltages around like candy, it won't get my chip and memory stable at the same speeds.
    The Strix won't even run my 3000 rated memory at 2933!
    Come on Asus, fix this please? We know you're better than this!

    Oh... wait, I own a Crosshair 3 formula...

    Guys why every one is complaining about high voltage? This is how the XFR2 and PBO is designed to do. Max clock with max possible voltage. Since it is designed by the manufacturer I believe it is not a problem even for longer run. But if you are not used to see 1.6v for a cpu becs of long time intel ocer (1.2~1.3v max) then frame a good overclock for the CPU and disable CPB & PBO = No high v spikes.
    And finally there is no tangible loss if you loose 300Mhz ocing. I mean if your cpu pushes 4.4 rarely with cpb and pbo and you have set a oc of 4.1 all core with a much lesser voltage then THERE WILL BE NO NOTE WORTHY LOSS IN PERFORMANCE. TEST IT

    Managed to reduce a bit more voltage now I am at 1.375 - 0.050 = 1.325 for 39x. IBT stable. Running cooler

    can you give me guide how to deal with it i am planing to get 2700x for this motherboard to upgrade from 2400g , currently there is no need for OC i will run on stock settings what is the best setting to use to reduce the temps voltage

    Except that high voltages also result in higher heat. Besides, almost all overclockers are looking for Max overclock at Min voltage, not Max at Max.

    Exactly. And even without any OC it is hovering very close to throttling temp, which cannot possibly be right. Especially when a different bios version has it sitting 20C lower with exactly the same performance.
    And I am not going to spend 150 EUR on a watercooler just to fix the symptoms of a buggy bios
