    Yeah ill also back him on this setting that value in the bios has no affect on core temps, it mite read the TJMax as 105 but the temps are still being worked out using 110.

    yeah, the temperature is not actually higher... the software just thinks it is.

    If the TJMax is increased, the distance of the TJmax is also increased, and therefore the temperature of the cores is increased too
    Sorry for my english

    OK, if the temps "never changed", does this mean my temps are inaccurate and reading 5C ( or more?) high? If so, how can I trust any reading?

    With the latest Asus bios and the 4D microcode for Skylake-X "integrated" in the bios, the TJmax has gone from 105 to 110°
    And so your temperatures have increased by about 5° compared to old bios (and old microcode)

    That's why I integrate the microcode 49 (TJMax 105°) to the new bios
    Sorry for my english

    From the above, it looks like you're using a different CPU between configurations, so tuning can be needed. Try Maximus Tweak Modes as well as tuning VCCIO and VCCSA.

    For 3600, try in the region of 0.900 and 1.1v VCCSA and 1.05-1.15 VCCIO.
    To be fair I tried both ways.

    My next step was to start adjusting the settings. However, after the mess with the thermal paste I was not 100% sure that the CPUs themselves was not messed up. I have arranged for a fresh Rampage VI and they just released the updated Rampage VI BIOS yesterday. So with that as a baseline everything else should be tweaking and i can settle in.

    Thanks for a starting point though. Usually when I have set it for XMP the ROG boards have autotuned it stabily with little effort.


    Side Note: I made the mistake of trying Coolermaster's new gel paste that came with the cooler. I am sure it does a reasonable job thermally. But even after letting the system cool it was still too goopy and got places i really didn't want. 1 damaged socket later....

    OK, sounds right. Now how do I incorporate the old microcode into the new bios? Do I need a special program, or can it be done within Windows?

    I was really ready to build with the Omega, but now I'm having second thoughts...

There are changes on the PCB as well and the Start/Reset button is moved down (bad and awkward) and who knows what else lies beneath.

    And the VRMs should come with a Waterblock like the Maximus Formula XI that btw has mediocre VRMs with "golden handles"....

    You may like it of course but its nothing like the original and no other board is for that matter...maybe we got a unicorn and that's it....
    I'm happy I built with the Rampage VI Extreme. Beautiful board.

If you don't like the looks, OK I get it. You already own an Extreme, so there is no need for you to upgrade....great. If the board doesn't offer the features you want/need, buy something else. I, for one, will be buying this board and I'll probably not be alone. Just like the Intel refresh of X299, some like it and some don't. I know I will not be trading my delidded chip for a soldered chip. Same goes for this refresh. Some will make the switch, some won't.

    I have a feeling the direction of this thread will change once the boards start rolling out to consumers and reviewers. Until that moment comes around, I'll just wait impatiently for these to hit the shelves.
    I'm ready for a new build and the Omega looks awesome to me. My R6E is my favorite PC of all time and I'm hoping I'll be just as pleased with the Omega.
