Here's hoping..I tried and tried..anything I touch, and it goes dead and back to stock BIOS.
Since last post, I've messed around with the PBO settings..:
b.)Disable (letting it run stock - WITH LLC Level 1's)
c)Manual - enabling over clock, 10X Scalar and Motherboard for the limit
Seems like C gets me the best...LLC 2 though.
DDR Voltage doesn't help the mem - gotten it to boot into Windows with 1.395 - Crash on Cinebench. Going to mess with timings (not CL - leaving that 16 - touching that has been dreadful).
And to keep all you manual guys happy.. going to try for 4.3 all core (not 4.35 - I was being a tough guy and it failed miserably). I'll re-run benches to see if there's any improvement. Will report CPU temp and VRM temps.
Speaking of VRM temps...yeah they're getting into the 70's easily when I'm jamming it full tilt (mining due to constant load of 89%). So bought two 140mm fans...one will be soley focused on the VRM's.
Plan for manual:
LLC 2 for CPU and SOC
1.35 to start...but will go up a bit if need be.
Regardless of if I can get it stable. If the performance (ie Cinebench, Geekbench and hash rates) don't justify the additional voltage and temps (I'm scared of VRM temps) and wattage...I'll go back...but I'll report back to you guys either way.
