Not by today's standards. 10 watts is a room light. A night light is 0.5 watts. Incandescents are obsolete. Even if electricity is cheap, I'd still prefer to see power-saving measures take place. I don't need 95 watts to look at internet porn. I mean, watch YouTube videos. Yeah...

Actually streaming and downloading causes them watts to go up smile.gif.

That's not the only thing that goes up!

So does the thermals. Yeah. It gets pretty hot. My CPU, that is.

It doesn't happen during gaming or any other normal usage.

Mine has been happening since day one, with all BIOS revisions and both Anniversary and Creator versions of Windows 10. I have tried many BIOS settings to see if I could get it to stop, but no luck. I'm thinking of trying a new CPU and mainboard to see if that does it too.
I get this when running realbench on Creator Update only. The display froze for a little while (sometimes a few second, sometime like a minute?) but no error, stability test passed.

Will the voltage set in the Extreme Tweaker options override the VID under custom pstates? Trying to change the default voltage under the custom pstates options (pstate0) disables the pstate altogether, a missing BIOS feature for now I guess...

edit: And what's the base voltage for offset mode voltage setting?

Thank you ASUS and thank you Elmor!! biggrin.gif

Good to see! I have tried playing around with different levels. Best I could do was boot into windows and then got a black screen soon after frown.gif

Going to try changing the ProcODT later when my stability test run finishes.

How did you go with this? I've tried messing with DDR boot voltage, DDR voltage and ProcODT and was unsuccessful :/

Only noticed it during stress testing and using creators update, might just be a driver that needs to be update for the newer windows version.

I checked out the windows feedback hub and it seems its not an isolated issue.

At stock settings my system can idle at less than 50 W (at the wall), overclocked it depends on power plans and other stuff, but usually over 60 W. So anything that drops idle wattage is welcome, especially since I sometimes leave the PC running for remote access.

can also confirm that the new agesa test bioses need more vcore to be stable.

For 4GHz on 1002 I needed 1.4V vcore with auto llc, now on 0083 I need 1.4V vcore with llc 2 to pass 30min Realbench.

Feels like Asus just copy pastad the new microcode without all the optimization work that went into the older revisions. I guess the purpose was to test new features like pstate oc with refclock and new memory subtimings above 3200 first with the new agesa, before putting work into all the optmization again.

Should be fine to run these alpha bioses for now, but looking forward to the next major release, like 1101 or sth.

Right after I ordered my TridentZ RGB F4-3600C16D-16GTZR, the price went up 24 bucks. I had thought about getting another for a total of 32 GB, but the price change made me decide no. So tonight I noticed it was on sale for $15.00 less than what I had paid, a $39.00 swing!

Dang, before I knew it I had been compelled to order it. So now getting 32 GB to run at decent timings will add to the list of challenges rolleyes.gif
