Here is F11e modded with all the latest firmware. GOP, RST, Ethernet, and the fastest microcodes. Updated 5/12/2020.

Make a FreeDOS USB like below, put the BIOS and efiflash.exe on it.



Boot into BIOS. Hit F7 to load BIOS defaults, F10 to save and reboot. As it reboots, hit F12 and boot from the USB NOT UEFI.

When it boots into DOS, type
Code:
efiflash 1.11e /x
Use the modded Master F11e BIOS, efiflash and the Rufus in the .zip file included as an attachment with this message.

Anyone know about this boards support for DAC audio? I'm new to this DAC Audio stuff but shouldn't there be RCA type outputs to run to a separate amp?

You should be able to run your external DAC via USB or Optical, There is no need for RCA as that would mean you are letting the onboard audio do the conversion process, I use a Topping DX3 Pro via optical.

Yeah my understanding is the Master Boards come with a DAC controller.
"125dB SNR AMP-UP Audio with ALC1220 & High-End ESS SABRE 9118 DAC with WIMA audio capacitors"

Coil whine - What causes it? Can't seem to make it go away. This thing sounds like a honda civic while under load lol.

Yeah that is the on-board sound 'card' most if not all modern mother boards have those built in

I did more testing but I can't get Prime95 stable. My PC crashes about 10-30 seconds into the "Small FFTs" stress test. All the other tests run without issues. Below are the results of today. I went back to BIOS F11c after trying F11e (I had some crashes but maybe due to overclock settings). I've been doing test runs with:

  • AIDA64 System Stability Test (about 30 minutes)
  • Intel Extreme Tuning Utility Stress Test with Normal, AVX and AVX2 (15 minutes each)
  • CINEBENCH R15 (5 passes)
  • CINEBENCH R20 (5 passes)

So where to go from here? Try more settings? Should I care about Prime95? I also did some searching on this topic and on Reddit /r/intel and /r/overclocking this question has popped up with comments from people saying this can happen and can be ignored.

Preferred overclock settings so far

Optimized defaults with the following changes:

  • X.M.P. profile applied
  • Enhanced Multi-Core Support: Disabled
  • CPU Clock Ratio: 50
  • CPU Vcore: 1.300
  • CPU Vcore Loadline Calibration: Turbo
  • CPU Vcore Current Protection: Extreme
  • PWM Phase Control: eXm Perf

Notes I made with these settings:

  • VR OUT goes a little bit higher when not doing anything.
  • VR OUT overall is lower. During AIDA64 it's around 1.250V (around 1.290V idle)
  • CPU Package temperature is lower. No throttling occurred.
  • CPU Package Power was around 183W during AIDA64.
  • CB R15 2063 PASS peak CPU Package temperature 83.
  • CB R20 4966 PASS peak CPU Package temperature 88.

Here is a screenshot graphs during AIDA64 testing



Only enabling Enhanced Multi-Core Performance

Optimized defaults with the following changes:

  • X.M.P. profile applied
  • Enhanced Multi-Core Support: Enabled

Notes I made with these settings:

  • VR OUT less difference between idle and during benchmark but there seems to be more fluctuation in the voltage.
  • VR OUT overall is higher. During AIDA64 it's around 1.310V (around 1.350V idle).
  • CPU Package temperature peaked at 97 during AIDA64. Throttling occurred on 3 cores.
  • CPU Package Power was around 193W during AIDA64
  • CB R15 2063 PASS peak CPU Package temperature 85
  • CB R20 4917 PASS peak CPU Package temperature 90

Here is a screenshot graphs during AIDA64 testing
