Strix Z370E OC woes: Vdroop and vanishing SSD? - Page 12

So is this board worth getting now?

I still kinda wonder if my cooler is under performing. It definitely seems like a good idea to at least give Kryonaut a shot when I replace that dying fan. I'm super tempted to delid at this point though TBH. I feel like I'm harshly limiting this chip's potential if I don't.

Yeah, it's fully functional and totally safe to use.

This might be too much to ask on OCN but i also heard that these boards also have overvoltage behavior even at stock setting which causes high temp so can you guys please test stock setting and tell me if that's true. I'm looking to get the E version and only use the cpu at stock speed so such a behavior would be a pain. Also can you guys confirm that these boards are now working 100% fine without any issues with the newest bios ?

It's mostly because testing things and figuring out what's wrong is fun. It's just that they first issue was frustrating due to the time it took to fix and the fact that I don't have the equipment to test something like Vdroop properly. In all honesty, I still wish that I had bought the Hero when I had the chance, especially since I still have fewer USB ports than I'd like and putting in the NVMe drive is a little harder. Oh well.

Fair enough smile.gif Personally I have always viewed the Strix line as being watered down ROG but Im glad you got it sorted thumb.gif I never doubted that it was a UEFI issue

I agree 100%. That said, I'm also thinking about keeping it and then selling it after the Code comes out. I have a friend stick on an FX8350, so I'm thinking about selling him my board for like $150 so he can get a good board at a good price once he can afford the CPU.

Hey I recently heard about the LLC (or vdroop issue) and am now asking myself am I good to go to buy an Asus Strix Z370F now after the BIOS Update?
Is everything fixed and the board 100% working as intended and lets me OC the 8700K?

It's okay to overclock with the new BIOS. There's a small issue with power limits, but you can work around that for now and it'll be fixed with the next release.
