Would like to know this as well.

Can someone tell me if this board supports P-State overclocking?

Can you share your BIOS settings? You are OCed right? It works for me at stock...just wondering if it works for anyone when OCed.

OK so I did some new tests with OFFSET mode, and it seems like the downvolting is working!

In manual mode with voltage set to 1.325 I would read roughly 80-83W at idle, as opposed to 76-79W in Auto. Now I tried offset mode with an offset of +0.1375, which gets added to the base amount of 1.1875 for a total of 1.325V.
HWiNFO still doesn't report any downvolting...just the usual fluctuations down to ~1.312 rather than the 1.0xx that I see with Auto mode. HOWEVER, my watt reader shows idle wattages in the same 76-79W range as Auto mode.

So it seems as though Cool n' Quiet DOES work as long as you use OFFSET mode...NOT manual! Even though it doesn't appear to be working according to HWiNFO.

EDIT: Be careful when using offset mode though! When I first tried it I switched from manual 1.35 to offset +0.1625 because I thought it would add that number to 1.1875...but when I saved and rebooted I was seeing over 1.5V! I had also read on other threads that offset mode is what disables Cool n' Quiet and they had to use manual for it to work (they may have had different motherboards though) so that's why I didn't try it again until now.

Make sure you set your VCore to Auto, and then reboot FIRST. After you reboot and you are seeing 1.1875, THEN apply your offset.

Absolutely. Have to set Auto first before any changes with Offset. Bit me on the transition from 0515 >> 0604 BIOS.

Hey guys! Just got this motherboard today and I'm really liking it so far. Went straight ahead and updated to latest bios version and then installed windows no problems. Also my Corsair mk16gx4m2b3000c15 ran @2933 first try enabling DOCP.


The only problem I'm having is the RGB is still active when I turn my pc off. Do i need to disabled it completely or is there a fix for it?


Thanks

No. You can turn it off in the BIOS under Advanced Menu >> On Board Devices section >> RGB Lighting ON/OFF >> Sleep, Hibernate, Soft Off ON/OFF

Anyone able to run 4.1Ghz stable on a 1800x (or 1700x) with BIOS 0604?

BTW: At 4Ghz, just with the noctua cooler my temps are 25 on idle.....I can't remember the last time I saw such a low temp with an OC'd CPU biggrin.gif yay!!!!

Yes here in Salzburg is very chilly. but my old 3770k at 4.6Ghz was always at 35 on idle on water. Damn! i'm extremely happy with my new Ryzen system.

Yeah they actually used solder on the heatspreader! biggrin.gif

My chip idles at my room temperature.

Interested to see any answers to your question. I have not attempted to do so on my 1700X simply because I assume the amount of voltage necessary would be extreme and the increase in power consumption along with the extra heat output for little gain makes it not very appealing. I have had enough troubles just to get my 1700X stable at 3.9 Ghz in my crunching computer.
The temps are reasonable now mainly because of mild springtime weather and I just keep the window open to let in cool air. It is going to be a bigger issue in a couple of months when the house is closed up and I have to depend just on the house A/C set at 25° C.

For some reason my 1800x is sometimes about 5 degrees below room temp when i turn it on, then it goes a bit up. Is this normal?

Well it's not possible for it to be cooler than room temp unless you are piping chilled air from an AC unit or the air is significantly colder close to the floor where your tower is or something funky like that. It's probably a sensor a little off. Tdie in HWiNFO seems to be pretty accurate for me but I know the "X" CPUs had an offset so maybe they haven't corrected the offset properly yet.

I know there has been tons of discussion about the temp sensors in the X models. I have not seen any of the issues commonly discussed. The temp sensors, Tctl or Tdie seem to track exactly 20° C apart. Doesn't matter whether the system is idle of fully loaded. The system temperature matches the room temperature. The AIO water temperature is mostly 3-5° C above room temperature when fully loaded. I have seen system power usage from a low of about 95W fully loaded to about 165W fully loaded when stressing with AVX tests. The highest I've seen the AIO water temp so far is about 35.1° C.

About the only anomaly has been a 2-3° C. difference in the SIO reported CPU temp and the EC reported Tdie temp with the Tdie always being the highest. I think that has been explained by the LSB error in D to A conversion.
