New workload that makes my overclock fall over: XTU benchmark pulls >>230A Icc at 50x
Part of the problem is the linear load line being inefficient for different levels of "load", so an optimal operating point for CB20 isn't going to survive a LinX v9 or XTU benchmark run.
A piece-wise function here would be a lot better. Hope Comet Lake's new platform comes with a new VR with new features, or the problem will be even worse with 10 cores.
Other part is ICCmax being more of a suggestion than a hard limit, so using that parameter to prevent Vcore from going to the ground isn't reliable.
I think the GB Z370 Gaming 7 wasn't really meant for 8 Skylake cores running AVX2 at 50x.
Even on Extreme LLC with fixed voltage the board droops 1.38V to 1.3V.
