I think, what many people don't know and I just learned (from the Wikipedia) is that at both M.2 and Sata Express slots/ports/connectors you can connect either Sata or PCIe (storage) devices. I find this totally understandable, these new options are not intuitive in any way. Although the manual is pretty clear on what the consequences of the discussed settings are, one illustrative sentence in this regard wouldn't have hurt. On the other hand, this might be said about many bios settings. wink.gif

Tbh i do not recall the Asus Multicore Enhancement setting (I'm looking at the manual now).
I was also using HWINFO64, but mainly looked at cpu temps & vcore readings towards the bottom of the window, so the clockspeed at the top were obscured...

So far other Realbench tests improved, & XTU and Maxmemm2 preview too. Of course just short runs for now, until I've found the settings I want.

If you set an XMP profile, the bios will ask you if you want to also enable the multi core enhancement, you can also set it manually from within the overclocking section. What it does (in case someone reading this isn't aware) is applies the maximum core speed to all of your cores when turbo is used (as well as some extra voltage to support this). So instead of the maximum 4.2GHz of a 6700K only being applied when one core is in use, and lower clock speeds being applied when multiple cores are used, it allows for all cores to reach 4.2GHz. This is handy because of the way Windows will spread a single thread across multiple cores, meaning that unless a thread is specifically told to only use a single core, the maximum 4.2GHz will rarely be reached.

If you open the Summary window in HWInfo, there is a handy graph that makes the clockspeed behaviour easier to see. Unfortunately it can't be run separately from the main window.

You can also re-arrange the order of the sensors in the sensors window.

Thanks Deders! Will recheck when I get home, hopefully it was just a simple setting I missed. smile.gif

For anyone looking at purchasing the Impact, Fractal Design have brought out a case that accommodates the SFF and watercooling support. Better still as it uses steel it's very aggressively priced.

I'm pushing for nerd recognition in UEFI. Will sync up with most webcams and mics to measure cranial landmarks, the number of zits, body fat to skeletal mass ratio, plus vocal range and depth. This test will be performed at the point of sale. Anyone not meeting desirable nerd criteria will be prevented from making a purchase until they display requisite aptitude in an entrance exam.

Should someone manage to pass the exam, but later show sluggishness in learning UEFI features, "super safe mode" will automatically be engaged. The board will continue to function, however, UEFI will no longer be available for tomfoolery and misadventure.

That's why it's a winning suggestion... even you can't come up with something more ridiculous. smile.gif

edit... ah, Raja wins. cheers.gif

Hello

If nothing else this discussion has brought to light why so many have issues with even basic assembly of the system.
