    That's good to hear. After some further use, I discovered I can still make it throttle. Just need to have multicore enhancement on anything but disabled.

    Though the heat coming off the case and time it takes tells me there definitely was a bad mount, so it's still progress. Now we just need ASUS to put out some properly tuned bios...

    Anyway, good luck.

    After I installed the frame I went ahead and applied the undervolting procedure ended up with mce: enforce all limits; *LLC#4; DC_LL=1.02; AC_LL=0.3. Noticed the cpu reached the 253w power limit, when as before the frame install it almost never reached 200w.

    Can you elaborate on why you're unable to fit the frame? The contact frame is designed to fit the stock mounting holes for the retention bracket, I've not had any issues on the Z790 Apex.

    The contact frame does not fit on the Z790 Hero because the socket hight is higher than the Asus Z690 sockets. I noticed this coming from Z690 Hero to a Z790 Hero. The screws are longer compared to the previous gen. It has caused me issues mounting my CPU block because of the hight difference anyway because of the hight of the CPU socket you won't be able to get the frame to sit flush against the motherboard the frame is 100% useless on the z790 Asus boards.
