was told no , they should all work ,, and in the end thats all it was , one change in the bios to , smart auto, and now they are fine

i was only interested because it shows LAN improvement etc,

how did you flash it and flash it back ? did you use Qflash in the bios or @bios software in windows ?

thanks
Smart Auto should be the default setting for xhci for recent BIOS versions, I think, although in the early BIOS's it was not.

Use Qflash for BIOS changes, although @BIOS should work fine it's generally recommended not to do BIOS updates from within the OS.
Hit End while booting to go directly to Qflash, or just go into the BIOS and you will see the option. Make sure you already have the BIOS you want to change to on a USB stick when you boot. After the system reboots go into the bios and load optimized defaults, and set up anything else you need, hit F10 to save and reboot.

Turned off c states to stability test, now with them back on it still won't downclock?... this board is awkward.

Enable EIST and set Windows power management to balanced. It will downlock.

Do I need to flash the UD3H bios before overclocking? I have a brand new board coming soon.

i never though of windows power saving features , i have not been able to keep 4.7 stable with the power features on etc, in the bios ,

now i realize i have my windows on High performance settings , i dont want my monitor ,hard drive etc, go to sleep


do you think that is whats giving me the problem and not being to downclock ?

i am trying it with 4.6 now seems ok but didnt use it enough to be sure , problem is not on load , its during idle , low usage

Yea, you need to be on balanced; otherwise, it won't downclock. You can modify the profile so that your hdd, monitor and etc don't go to sleep.

i tried that and it didnt work for me , my system still shuts down , not stable so the windows option is not the reason ,

i just went back to fixed OC which works fine , i tried at least a dozen different settings , options in the bios etc, to get some of the power saving features working and none of them worked for me

i was just looking to keep the temps lower during normal use etc,

i am back to my 4.7 OC fixed Vcore , no down clocking or power saving features , even at full power , this uses so much less than previous systems either way , i am not concerned too much about the wattage usage as opposed to the temps ,

with this settings i get about 37 C to 40 C and a liquid temp of about 36 C from the antec cooler

plenty of room left if TJ max is 105C , in the bios it will shut down at 130C ,

i would like it cooler but unless i want to lower my OC , this the best i can do now , maybe i change out the paste sometime in the future just to see , and its on a custom setting so fans are running at about 800 rpm

I am not sure. My system does fine with EIST enabled and fixed voltage.
