    ASUS Zenith Extreme low cpu clock

    Hello all,

    This board has been a freaking nightmare; plagued by BIOS issues. After leaving my computer idle my CPU is stuck to ~0.66 Ghrz never going above this. Temperatures are fine and when I restart the computer my speed returns to normal. What the hell is going on? This is supposed to be a workstation board and basic functionality is non-existent. I selected all of my parts based on the QVL and BIOS seems to be a piece of crap. Other have NVMe raid issues but I have not even attempted to do enable this. I cannot even get my BASIC cpu functionality going.

    Here is a screenshot showing the issue at idle:
