As a comparison on latest test BIOS with 1.360V manual mode. 4.7G loaded with Prime95 29.1 SmallFFTs. LLC levels are not fully tuned yet so can't reference which one yet. Probably around 4-5. CPU-Z has been relatively accurate and at most ~15mV off.

CPU-Z 1.264V
Measuring at IO-Tech indicated location 1.345V
Measuring at socket MLCC 1.253V

Does it? All it shows is a chain of errors on both sides. Seems surprising both parties involved in the initial chain didn't know where to measure from. Perhaps IO-Tech hadn't done anything like this before.

I think that you should be more surprised that Asus gave the wrong location initially. Socket MLCC should be the most accurate one.

Both are equally as surprising. If I told you to jump off a cliff, would you do it? lol

After reading this thread I just decided to cancel my z370-f order and I just went with a Aorus 7 even if it was 50€ more expensive. Asus has disappointed me. mad.gif

Probably the best choice. If it only took R&D less than one business day to identify the issue it's clear that they didn't do nearly enough testing. Voltage regulation should be one of the first things they test on any motherboard with overclocking capabilities.

Could've went with a Taichi if it's the same price as the STRIX...tongue.gif

I personally see no issue in purchasing any of the Strix models or a PRIME due to this bug, as it is just a matter of time when it (the shenanigan) will be fixed. It's merely a nuisance and not a design fault.

That looks like a potentially great chip. That said, you can't really overclock it and there are better boards which actually work at every price point. We also have no idea how long it'll take them to fix it. It could be an hour, a day, a week, or a month.

Manual 1.2V in bios, SVID disabled and LLC 6:

On load



On idle



It needs a fix.
