Im using water cooling with the fans set to use a temperature probe on the temperature in port. This setup ironically worked perfectly with the same cooling hardware on my previous Asus z97-a motherboard with AIsuite,

Is sorting the cooling controller on the roadmap that anyone knows of?

Can you give me exact details for reproducing? Which fan headers? Which AISuite version? Does it happen if you uninstall AISuite?

There is no such fluctuation, it's 100% a readout problem. Reference clock is not directly measured, but calculated using a suitable counter and prone to errors. The only platform which has hardware counters for reference clock is Skylake/Kaby Lake. Do you have any details on accuracy @Mumak?

Other thing dunno if ya seen my post but on 079 memory timings got like stuck. Could not lower or rise any. 3x cmos clear and loaded standard ones still ware stuck. Only option to fix it was glashing other bios. Bizzare.

Besides that iw spend 20 hours playing around with 079 and 081 and sticking with 081. Runs great.

One more question. Does this mb got option to turn off HPET??? Or we just turn it off and on in windows. I assune off is better for bios oc??

Thanks. Looking forward for final version of 081 smile.gif

Readouts are not perfect, and you won't ever get the exact same voltage as what's applied. HPET is selected based on the OS preference.
