I'll do some more testing shortly but I've never observed this behavior before on 1002-0082 BIOS versions.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Edit: Set PLL to 1.8 and still observed throttling (along with some instability likely due to my 130mhz BCLK @1.8).
Edit 2: Increased vcore one tic (1.394 under load from 1.387) and set SOC LLC to level 3 and the throttling is gone even though temps have increased by a few degrees. I've still never observed throttling with either situation but it seems to be gone for now.
Edit 3: something else it has never done before is freeze up momentarily during benchmarks which is happening now even at BCLK 120 with the RAM at 3200.
Before I started BCLK overclocking yesterday, I re-watched the YouTube by Chew using this board. More than the specific BCLK, CPU frequency, volts and memory frequency, I wanted to get more familiar with his basic setups.
Here is what he did:
Disable CPB and Global C-states under advanced (he was not going P-states)
Set all PCIe to Gen1
Disable Super I/O Clock Skew
Set AI Overclock Tuner to Manual
Set BCLK value
Set CPB to to Disable
Set CPU LLC to Level 5
Set Spread Spectrum to Disable
Set CPU Power Phase Control to Optimized
Set VDDSOC LLC to Level 3
Set VDDSOC Phase Control to Optimized
Set DRAM VBoot to same volts as you use for DRAM
Set VTTDDR to 0.68640
Set VDDP Volts to 1.005
Set CPU Core Volts
Set CPU SOC Volts
Set DRAM Voltage
Set PLL Voltage to 1.8
Set SB Voltage to 1.05
Save / Reboot
This was a good starting point for me. I'm on UEFI 1107 as well, and like you have SenseMI disabled and see temps under stress in the same ballpark as you are. The only freeze ups I see are in Realbench Stress runs, and that is something I noticed before using 1107 or BCLK overclocks.Edited by CeltPC - 5/4/17 at 2:49pm
