I'm having this really odd issue with my gaming rig. This thing just wont remain powered off. The system auto. boots back up after a shut down via Windows. In addition, If i hold the power button down to do an emergency shut down, it works but then I can't boot it back up...Nothing happens. Does this sound more like motherboard or PSU? I don't have any good working parts to test so I would hate to purchase new stuff and then find out its not it, and return it.
Anyone battled with a such anomaly before? If so, what did you do to fix it?
Yes, seems to do what it's supposed to do. IT's moved to Advanced tab, has several settings, also XFR in other place. My benchmark tests show less than 10% lower results than with full OC to 4.3GHz. There's also improvement with RAM handling.
I still don't know why some benchmark tests do not push frequency as far as others although all produce 100% load on all cores. I suspect that most if not all benchmark programs are still geared toward Intel. In other words, 100% load doesn't guarantee full frequency. One can't ever be sure he's getting all CPU can give.
AMD should do something about it. Maybe make a test that can load all cores to the max ?
I'm sure it will work at stock clocks. Maybe an added fan for the VRMs. May have to read more about it once the new cpus arrive. We gotto go 12. My cell has 8. lol
Being only 7nm, 12 core is likely not to exceed today's 8 core power requirements and as far as I could see, this VRM is holding fine at full load and OC. I already have back case fan turned as intake and angled so it blows at VRM. If b450 MBs already can stand 2700x, this MB should be able to supply 12 cores for sure.
