    Hey, thanks for the info. I found the switch you are talking about. It is a tiny little thing on the face of the motherboard in the bottom right corner, next to another switch. Unfortunately, in my case, it is really tough to get at because I have two GPUs, and the second one covers over the spot where it is. Hence, I might have been able to get at it somehow, but it just seemed not worth the trouble. And, on seeing that, I started wondering if it wasn't better to just reinstall 0802, the previous BIOS. The first time flashing it was fine. Hence I did that, and the flash worked like a charm, like it should. It was a different story with 3006. I had to do it from the previous BIOS menu because it would not work manually--which is already a flag this thing is flawed.

    Anyhow, curious as to whether the clock speeds and temperatures would return to normal with the old (previous) BIOS, 0802, reinstalled, that was the indeed the result. Hence, there is absolutely no reason to believe anything other than the fact that 3006, in at least my case, was definitely the source of the problem.

    Anyhow, thanks. Also, in case anyone is curious--I sent one email to Asus about this, and they told me to check the cooler, reapply paste to my CPU, and check it for bent pins and then to even replace the CPU, if needed. Sure, yeah, right. I then emailed them back explaining in more detail about the high clock speeds and high core temperatures, but now, more than two days later, have heard nothing back. I honestly expect to not hear back. This is the kind of support you can expect from Asus.

    My clock speed was stuck at 4.4 ghz after installing 3006.
    had to rollback to bios 2002.
    I can't believe these people release this sort of junk.
    Not to mention the non-existing support.

    In your BIOS setup, under Advanced menu\CPU Configuration\CPU Power Management.

    My windows minimum core clock went and set it self to 100% on me for some reason. I turned it back down to 0% and it dropped my idle clocks back down to normal just fyi. This BIOS does run hotter though can confirm for certain about 6 - 8C hotter.

    Compared to which bios ?
    It should be the same as with the official 2002 bios

    This BIOS 3006 is just a disaster.

    Oh, not only that. The support staff are either smoking drugs, have quit and the janitorial staff have taken over or they are all mentally debilitated.

    None of them can read a simple email message or report they ask for. For the second time they are copying and pasting replies showing this.

    This is the latest reply after their supposed but nonexistent chats with their "engineers." Yeah, right. The only people they could have chatted with are their five year old children who told them about Honey Nut Cherrios and the boy who fell down the stairs while trying to blow his nose:

    Check CPU fan is connected to the CPU Fan header properly.
    Check is heatsink/fan and CPU has proper contact by checking thermal paste.
    Possible that the thermal paste have dried up and not overheating.
    Suggest installing a pea size thermal paste to the processor die and make sure to put good contact with the heatsink/fan. it should cool it down a bit
    Suggest using Artic MX-2/MX-4 for high cooling to get lower temperatures.
    If 1-4 steps do not work, Turn off the system, check bent pins on the socket; if not bent pins, replace processor.

    These guys have no business being employed as janitors even. They are clueless.

    Asus support evidently does not read my replies and/or understand plain English. They want me to revert back to an older BIOS, which I had told them I had already done

    They also want me to send my motherboard in for repairs.

    Not only do they not know how to program their systems so they cool down CPU core temperatures while the CPU socket temperature is fine so that you might unknowingly brick your CPU, they also don't know how to test a new BIOS for problems. Asus support also lacks grade five reading and comprehension skills, and furthermore lack common sense.

    How is sending in a motherboard for repairs going to fix a problematic BIOS, and system software that lets CPU core temperatures go unchecked into the nineties with not so much as a single fan going a single RPM up?

    My CPU cost more than two grand, and my current motherboard is the last time I go with Asus. Asus can keep it's fancy overpriced hardware. The software is forever faulty and the support is laughable.

    As for the design flaw that lets your CPU cores run super hot without you knowing if you are not manually monitoring your clock speeds and core temperatures yourself with HWMonitor or something comparable? Others have pointed out how that with Asus motherboards and Asus Ryujin the system reports healthy temperatures to users when they are not at all healthy. The cooling also reacts to temperatures on the motherboard versus the CPU. Hence, you can brick your CPU with 3006 without knowing it. Go to about the ten minute point in this video:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wS0Ev3SX2I

    In summary the software is forever faulty, the support is horrendous, and the design will let you brick your CPU unknowingly when trusting the software, even though you spent a lot of dough and expected you got the best.

    Again, let me emphasize this key point: You can brick your CPU with 3006 without knowing it. Or more correctly, you can cook your CPU to the point that you have bricked it without knowing it until there is no turning back.

    As for the design flaw, the core CPU data is available to the system because HWMonitor shows it. If Asus engineers and software designers choose to ignore that data with a few lines of code in the software on the grounds that they have opted to put noise levels your fans make ahead of the health of your components, so that you have to replace them sooner rather than later, and they add to that software that does not work correctly then I will be voting with my wallet next time round and will not be going with Asus, fancy cosmetic looks or not. The quality you expect you get when you pay a premium is simply not there.
