So on the x470-f strix has any one else had the issue where the IO-shield VRM heatsink is very hot to the touch after long stress even when sensors go back to normal? The top VRM heatsink is cool to touch. Obviously this is a issue a fans will fix but i need to keep my gpu AIO in my exhaust to slow fan pressure or my IO VRM heatsink cant cool down but could something like this simulate ram or cpu OC issues for example throw false errors in memtest or throtling with unexplained power draw increases things like that. Im at the point i want to take the IO shield off but thats as sub optimal as keeping my AIO in my exhaust.
I'm using MSI X370 SLI Plus with Ryzen 2700 and the last bios E7A33AMS.3H0. Now i have offset voltage option, but does not work.
I'm so tired about this. Cool and Quit, works well, the clocks vary ok, but no way to voltage drop and its sucks.
With the usmus biosmod and ryzen 1700 everything works well, buts with 2700 the voltages dont drop.
I'm using 40x multiplier.
The motherboard is good, but the software is very poor.
Been running the latest mod bios on my MSI B350 Bazooka [was $30 cheaper here in straya than the mortar back in 2017] with a 1700. E7A38AMS.1H0 has been a godsend!
the stock recent bios would never downvolt [as per usual as of late], but also the clocks would get stuck at max. Really didn't want to roll back as those old enough to not have the issues were still surly with Hynix-M die.
Flashed it with the mod bios, used unlocked P-state overclocking as I would on my taichi [just tweaking P0], perfect! Downclocks consistently and most importantly; idles at 0.835v
Thank you so much most of all 1usmus, and everyone else here keeping this thread going. I have a rarity after almost 2 years in the Ryzen world; a bios perfect for my needs.
