ASUS North America - ASUS Z170 Motherboards Q&A Thread - Page 322

post #3211 of 5732
I've been with fixed vcore 1.340v llc5 on the Hero (1.344-1.360v in windows). I wanted to try offset mode so that vcore drops during idle.
In bios the offset can be left at "Auto". Does auto mean it determines & uses a fixed offset value each boot, or is it some "dynamic" value?
I can quick pass RealBench at 1.328-1.377v using either auto/-0.08v/-0.06v offset. But once I start Intel XTU, vcore shoots to 1.424-1.440v - score is higher than when my vcore was limited in fixed mode. But why does it go above 1.4v & how can I prevent this?

Thanks.

So a process was ready to start something before another something it was expecting was ready.


The funny thing is this problem with driver installation crashes never occurred with MBR installs, only GPT.
Was vcore at default auto mode? I rem at stock the 1st time I saw my vcore readings in HWINFO, the max was so high I thought I had a dud. So if you had Watchdog errors even at auto mode, yeah that would be strange indeed.

This time around it might have been that LLC hadn't had a chance to auto configure since I updated the bios, it can take a couple of restarts when set to Auto.

Also there should be a couple of new options in the BIOS created since the manual was written that emulate USB mouse and keyboard in Win7 setup.

That did the trick... When I put the Win 7 DVD in my second blu-ray, UEFI recognized it as a bootable drive (name preceeded with UEFI). I still have CSM set to Auto. When I got to the Win 7 install screen on which drive to install to, it forced me to partion the drive. I chose GPT instead of MBR. I think I missed this step on my first attempt. When I check Computer Management, I now see Partition Style = GPT instead of MBR. There must be something wrong with my bootable USB jump disk, or what's on it...

Gotta work in 7 hours, so I think I'll install 231 Win7 updates while hitting the sack...

Thanks so much for the help!

Glad it helped.

I recently put in a new fan in my CHA_3 slot on my Z170-A already having the same fans in CHA_4 and CPU_OPT. Running on the exact same fan curve the fan attached to CHA_3 is only at half the RPM of the other two, cranking the fan up to full speed it only reaches 900RPM where as the other two easily kick in 2000+. SOmetimes at boot the CHA_3 fan can't even start itself and need me to flick it. I tried different fans with the same result, is my MB broken? (4pin PWM fans btw)

Have you at any point done the auto configuration of the fans that detects each fans minimum and maximum speeds? It might be using the settings for the old fan.

I did, same result, though it shouldn't matter because all three fans are the exact same model. I also updated my bios, same deal before and after

So just to clarify, are you saying that the previous fan in CHA3 is the same model as the new fan, but now neither of them power up properly?

there was no fan in CHA_3 prior, I plugged one in and found out it's only kicking out half the power of other headers I am using
