Ok I'm running the bios mod on my strix X470-F so i got some hydronaut and was doing some baseline tests at stock and my current OC after switching paste and now back to the stock prism air cooler on my 2700x. I noticed my max SoC voltage at frightening 3.00v!!!!
Dreading the worst I wiped my CMOS and unplugged. Going back into bios when flare X 3200cl4 set at 2400 all timings on auto I noticed SoC set around .8v and then was about 1.0v iirc after only enabling xfr and rebooting into bios. Disabled it again and dropped to .8v but then I tried to turn xfr on again and SoC stayed at .8v. I've never manually set SoC beyond 1.1 or auto voltage it was either raised from mem frequency, XFR or or other board features(don't know exactly how to find what changes different voltages all the time). I have on the other hand used the SoC switching frequency at 400 or 500 since my tests seem they help me not need as much voltage and the other VRM settings kept my system stable at times but I can only guess when it happened and the only way I was able to replicate it shown in the second picture is running single core cinebench runs (every time after multi core runs and cpuz benching)
I am used to seeing things like 0.000v VID usage on the cores from time to time in hwinfo and other software glitches but as shown in the second picture, the math of SoC power being nearly half the full TDP of the CPU maxing at nearly 50w SoC power. I just don't know the average/safe SoC current to see if that math adds up with voltage. If that means what I think it means than somehow my motherboard has been spiking the voltage up without being detected . I wonder if VRM temps differing confused the boards current control and has been slipping voltage spikes or something every time the IO shield VRM becomes heat soaked.
So should I be flashing back to stock and prepping to RMA the board before it does something like fry my dumb expensive ram. My CPU and Mobo can be RMAd but ram can't be.
I get it that I did all this over clocking at my own risk but I really really need to get to the bottom of this as idk if this could explain why I've had such a hard time getting my ram and cpu stabilized progressively getting worse it seems.
Been trying to replicate issue with another PSU and my old micron 2400 MHz cl16 kit but have yet to see much as I haven't been able to test more than a couple settings changes.
Any advice , info, insight would be greately appreciated.
