I've had the same "feeling". I've been using P-States @ 3.9 with stock clocks and LLC on Turbo and it works like a charm.

I recommend to update to Windows Fall creators update. It gives me even better CB Scores.

+1.

I dont have a baseline to compare couse i get the K7 when the F7b bios was out but i can say that this bios is more stable than the last one (0902) of the asus prime pro, with the gigabyte board i forget of cold boot when ram is at 3200 mhz (hynix) biggrin.gif

I'm still on F4 bios because that's been rock solid for me, and with my 1700 changing the multiplier and using offset voltage gives me roughly the same result as pstate overclocking anyways.

Currently running it at 3.7ghz with stock non turbo voltage of 1.18v and pulling 80-90w running prime95 blend, with ram on xmp 3200C14. It's about 8.5% slower than it was at 3.975ghz 1.35v 3466C15 but only pulls half the power.

I'll mess with the ram timings a bit later and see if that makes much difference without bumping the power consumption back up again. Might even put the rgb wraith spire cooler back on it, that looks so much nicer on this board than a massive plain silver heatsink.

So far on 3.975 on 1.38-1.4 load. And been fine all day:)

I couldn't even load up a game with out a black screen 5min into it before:) Just maybe i can get the magic 4ghz lol..

So either the bios helped or was my last psu i had in it that something didn't like about it. Psu is fine in my fx rig which takes much more power tho. Its just sense day one with ryzen this board did not agree with that psu.

So far F7b has been a smooth ride, noticed it is easy to OC and get RAM up to speed. Also the VRMs temps seem more lower this time around plus p-states now working with my "x" chip. Plus my hynix m dies can now be ran with lower vsoc and RAMvoltages.

Read on giga boards that sometime early to mid november we're gonna get AGESA 1007 (or as Matt said 1070) .
Hoping for a bright future with our board! biggrin.gif

Hello guys,
I recently switched from a Rog Strix B350-f to a Gigabyte GA AX370 K7.
I´ve read much in this thread about this board, but it seems like the most of you are getting waaay better VRM temps than me. One other thing I´ve noticed is hw montior shows me a max vcore of 2,2 V after an hour of prime 95. How is that even possible with a Ryzen 7 1700 (offset of +0,06250 and LLC on Turbo and 3,9 GHz clock, newest bios)?

Temps after 1 Hour of prime:
-CPU: 62°
- VRM 85°

Temps after just 10 mins of intel burn test:
-CPU 67°
- VRM 92° !!!


I´m just wondering if I should rma the board, because something is wrong with it

Maybe it is from tightening the heatsink to icnrease the mounting pressure then , not just the pad change.

Did you install AMD chipset drivers?

You mentioned offset but what is the actual voltage and power under load in hwinfo64?

Also it may be because you have a buggy BIOs. Some K7 BIOs versions that were later pulled from the website overvolt the CPU.

I'd flash to a known working one.

P.S. It also depends on case airflow.

From my Gigabyte X370 Gaming 5 review:
Quote:
* VRM temp per hwinfo64 is 65 Celsius in open air (no case) with Ryzen 7 1700X running True Spirit 140 Power @ 700RPM after 4 hours of AIDA64 stability test (it levels out after about one hour)
* VRM temp per hwinfo64 is 60 Celsius in open air (no case) with Ryzen 7 1700X running True Spirit 140 Power @ 850RPM after 1 hour of AIDA64 stability test , ambient temp ~23°C
* VRM temp per hwinfo64 is 73 Celsius in open air (no case) with Ryzen 7 1700X @3.925GHz @ ~ 1.344V dynamic voltage cooled by True Spirit 140 Power @ 1100RPM after 30 minutes of AIDA64 stability test (at 1 hour in it is also this VRM temperature), ambient temp ~27°C
I also tried 8 hours of Prime95 at 38.75 multiplier (~170W CPU power not including SOC) and obtained 74°C average VRM MOS with a spike to 85°C which may be sensor issues (CPU fan at ~1250RPM)
