    Angry Maximum Hero X core voltages are insane?!!?

    Hey,

    So I finally got a hold of an 8700K and really wanted to wait for the Formula to release, but I can't even find a date for the relase of it in Norway so I decided to go for a Hero X, I had the Hero VII in my previous build and was happy with it so why not..

    But straight out of the box I started getting really really high temps while just playing games (80-90 celcius) and even high 60's-70's just in windows watchin youtube and at first I thought it was my new Noctua cooler that was faulty so I even RMA'd it and got a Corsair H100i v2, not even thinking about core voltages (I know it was dumb).. but then I got the same friggin bad temps with the H100i..... then I almost RMA'd my 8700K, but THEN I found out my Hero was pumping 1.412 V into my CPU by DEFAULT....... this is with the 0505 Bios (newest)... like what the hell Asus. I could probably run like way over 5GHz with that kind of voltage, something I'm not even interested in doing with my current setup.
    Prime95 goes to 100 degrees in less than 10 minutes.. Assassins Creed Origins crashes after 10-30 minutes.. And my ambient temp is only 22 degrees at the moment (Winter in Norway).. Setting my voltage to 1.200 seems to have fixed everything, but still I am spending hours on this.. I usually don't really bother changing too much in the BIOS, because I trust the ROG team with this stuff and I don't want to break anything myself.. Why would they even do this?!?!? I usually love your stuff and have used Maximus motherboards for my last 4 builds now...

    Sorry about the rant, but yeah......

    ok, so the 0802 update that I found in this very forum seems to have fixed it... You should get that uploaded on the main ASUS site ASAP so people don't have to experience what I did.

    Base frequency of these CPUs is 3.7GHz. We've relaxed the rules to lower the voltages. If your cooling is up to the task, you are free to overclock the CPU as desired.

    Also had to remove an expletive from your opening post. Please keep those out of your posts, even if it is a rant.

    yeah same thing happened to me lol my cpu hitted 100 c° Lol
    setting the LLC 5 or 6 and AC/DC load line to 0.01 it fixed the high voltages for me , but still if i use adaptive mode my voltages are a little higher than normal so i'm using manual voltage

    For Adaptive, you can try setting SVID Behaviour to best case, also.

    Is or will there be a comprehensive changelog for the 0802 BIOS for the Hero? I have downloaded and installed it, and I think there are a handful of new options, mostly in the Training Algorithms page. The only 0802 changelog I can find is for the Apex (Improved system stability) I think is the only entry?, That's about as informative as the write-up for a Nintendo system firmware update.

    Main changes I know of were the SVID/LLC rules being changed. The training stuff is for advanced tweaking only, and not something the average Joe needs to concern themselves with.

    Am I the only one really strugeling with the 0802 ??? I can't play anything now, everything crashes in 10 minutes, PUBG, Assassins creed origins, cs go.... and its not because of temps now because they are great.. never even goes above 50c because my cpu never goes above 4.3 turbo with this bios...... I even bluescreened while playing PUBG

    or can it actually be the new Windows 10 creator update??

    I installed that aswell recently while having all these problems

    Edit: I can run any diagnostic / benchmark just fine.. Aida64, Prime95, furmark, windows memory diagnostics etc etc, but as soon as I start an actual game from steam the game runs perfectly in the start then just crashes after 5-15 minutes.. it just crashes to desktop and asks me to send a report every single time
