    Have you tried testing your Samsung 960 PRO at stock defaults without XMP?

    Yes both, ON & OFF.

    The highest speed I got is 3100 but most of them dont pas the mid 2800 hundreds. Write speeds are fine.

    Don't know..it's weird. I am sure it's a question of bios updates or chipset driver.

    I explained my issue in a pm to a mod or maybe an Asus rep.

    Did not get any answers.

    Their products are usually awesome as I have multiple pieces of hardware from them but customer service sucks big time weather online or on the phone.

    They don't even sound like they understand what I'm talking about!! lolll ...Like if I spoke Chinese or something ( No offense my eastern friends )

    Anyways, hopefully it gets resolved soon ...

    Try disabling Speedstep and using a High Performance power plan for testing.

    Good morning,

    Just to share the effects of the recent BIOS upgrade...

    With 0702 BIOS, the 7820X @4.5GHz all cores sync'd and 1.125V would not exceed 88C and it would pass Prime95 28.1 (no AVX). After applying the BIOS update to 0802, the CPU reaches 100C and fails the same test with the same BIOS configuration and test parameters.

    It's worth mention that this temperature increase is noticed only under CPU heavy load and is still about 65C for moderate usage and 40C idle.

    I'll see if I can get my hands on a NVMe drive for testing.

    If your system was stable on the 0702 BIOS and there isn't a specific feature you need from the 0802 BIOS, feel free to stick with 0702.

    At the end I managed to reduce voltages applied to the CPU under BIOS 0802, hence the thermals are a little closer to the ones observed using 0702 BIOS. A 9% preformance increase was also noticed on the Samsung 960 Pro SSD, so I'll stick with 0802 for the time being.

    I shall try to bring voltages further down later on...

    Currently:
    Same 7820X on a X299 TUF MARK1 Motherboard;
    1.12V to all cores sync'd at 4.5GHz and 93C max during Prime95 28.1 (no AVX) pass test;
    1.06V to mesh at 3.2GHz and 97C max during Prime95 28.1 (no AVX) pass test;

    Another point... would be nice if Asus could consider making the RAM-Cache II application available to the TUF Mark 1 owners. It is sold at the same price as the ROG series and is also a premium product. It'd be very much appreciated.

    Cheers!!
