Guys I am running Z97x gaming 5 F7 bios and 4690K.
I realized uncore has to idle while casually browsing forum, mine was always running at 35x.
Ran one of my CPUs that way for 2 and other one for 1 years now.
Then I have read it is a Gigabyte thing. When I change CPU Multiplier Uncore got stuck at 35X again,
The fix was setting multipliers for core individually from Turbo, All set to 46 it was just same but this time with uncore that idles at 8X.
Then Uncore got stuck again when I set my Memory Multiplier to 16X, and this time I couldn't find any workaround in bios.
I found a workaround for this, so sharing with you.
I set Ring Voltage to "Normal", Ring Offset to "+0.0V"
I set Ring Bus / Cache / Uncore whatever you understand what I mean to 8X in bios.
I installed Intel XTU, set cache mutiplier to 39X.
Now it works, idles at 8X and boosts up to 39X and shows +0.9V offset in HWMon. (Tried it and it shows +0.3V offset when Ring Voltage left auto).
I have couple questions tho,
1- Does ring voltage drop when it is idling at 800mhz anyway? for other boards or for our gigabyte ones?
2- Do you guys have same behaviour when you change your memory multiplier or CPU multiplier?
