    Exclamation ROG Strix X370 F Gaming Overclocking Bugs

    I'd like to share some bugs I've found with this motherboard and hopefully they can be fixed.

    M.2 Slot stops detecting any drive when overclocking Base Clock (APU Frequency)
    If the APU Frequency is overclocked to a value over 101Mhz, you will not be able to utilize a M.2 drive.

    CPU ratio locking at 15.5
    When using the default APU Frequency of 100 (never tried with other values) and use a ratio higher than 38 (haven't tried lower values), when loading into your system the CPU ratio will show as 15.5 in any asus monitoring software (1.55Ghz), Windows Task Manager will show the correct speed expected from the ratio set in the BIOS, but benchmarking proves the CPU ratio has gone down to the value of 15.5

    Motherboard supplying more or less CPU voltage when using an offset depending on the CPU ratio
    I had to compensate for this. In my system I'm using a APU Frequency of 125Mhz, Performance Core Boost disabled, C States enabled, a CPU Load Line Calibration of Level 3, Optimized CPU Power Phase Control & 100% CPU Current Capability.
    Depending on the CPU ratio I set I will get voltage readings that are way over or way less than the max CPU voltage set. For example with a CPU ratio of over 30 and a CPU Voltage of 1.3875V, I get a voltage reading of 1.426V on idle and a voltage of 1.442V on full load. With a CPU ratio of 28 and a CPU Voltage of 1.3875, I get a voltage reading of 1.345V and a voltage of 1.365 on full load.
