3. I have my pc connected to UPS and at stress test I was expecting a consistent wattage pull but it seems to fluctuate between 260 to 360, so it jumps 100 watts every half a tick(.5 second) or so, I'm monitoring cpu usage and its always at max during stress test and with xtu monitoring various throttle values nothing comes up throttling
4. I can just ignore my VID since I'm on offset, is that correct?

Thank you so much your help ahead of time. I just wanted some peace of mind regarding my set up and seeing the wattage jump all over the place made me feel a bit uneasy

UEFI Version: 4.20
CPU:i9 9900k
Memory kit part number (s) and amount in GB: G.SKill F4-3600C15-8GTZ Quantity 4 of total 32 gb
GPU: 1080ti
PSU: Seasonic PRIME TX-850
CPU Cooler:Corsair h100i pro

Any third Party temp/voltage software installed:hwmonitor, icue, hwinfo64, intel xtu,
System Overclocked (provide details)? 5.0ghz offset -130, LLC Level 3
yeah, that vcore is way too high for that frequency on that CPU. Most 9900Ks do 5.0 at under 1.3V. You should look for an AsRock or 9900K therad.

You're asking this on an Asus thread and you have an Asrock motherboard, which counts the vdroop/llc "backwards" (LLC1 being the highest on Asrock). I'd suggest you to address that on the AsRock thread or a separate thread on OCing. Otherwise, as a previous owner of a z370 Taichi, I would suggest you to use LLC2 or LL1, and I think your vcore is high (weed probably?)

Ok, before you open your own thread or go to Asrock, go on youtube and search for Kapteeni Kuolio "i7 8700K 5Ghz & Memory Overclocking with Asrock Z370 Taichi Motherboard" - he OCs an 8700k on Asrock, as that is not a fundamentally different CPU, while the MB is practically identical, except vcore voltage on the 9900k should be lower.

DarthFK Update of some sorts - I purchased locally an i3-9100f, reflashed the BIOS, cleared CMOS and my Asus Maximus X Hero board booted fine with it.

Then I cleared CMOS and tried the two 9700k and one still threw the CC and then 55 error, while the other threw 00 error (no CPU).

At this point it is more than clear that there is no way that any of the 9700k would work on the Asus (or any board at all), even after my 9700k initially booted & froze in the BIOS, giving me some remote hope.

Thanks for the suggestion about the Intel Protection Plan @Falkentyne . Gigabyte replied that the CPUs are not their problem. I looked at the intel PTPP plan and for $20 it covers CPU death due to OCing. Well... unfortunately, Intel's website is having problems for the 2nd consecutive day (lol!), but I think I will be able to purchase it next days. This was a very good advise! Thanks!

No, no replacement plan, regular Microcenter purchases. I was thinking that it should be withing warranty with Intel, without any additional replacement plans. Scratching my head, I was thinking to contact Gigabyte, under the impression that the MB manufacturer is responsible for the damage, so maybe they should replace the CPUs too (well...)

Anyway, one of my Asus related questions stemmed from the fact that after that GB board, I placed the CPU back into my Asus and got into BIOS, but it froze there, then the board threw CC (incomplete BIOS) and 55 (no RAM) errors. I thought that if the CPU would be broken it wouldn't be able to go into BIOS at all. Hence my attempts to troubleshoot on the Maximus board and trying BIOS flashback, etc, asking for any ideas.

If you have any additional thoughts about being able to enter into BIOS originally, but not now, let me know.

Thank you all for weighing in in the meantime!!!

Bad mobo.

It's the first time when I see a mobo killing two CPUs.

It's a side question, but if any of you ever had this happen, who should I contact and should I claim damage for both CPUs? Did anyone had such an experience?

I am still wondering how did it post to BIOS the 1st time after getting the CPU back to the motherboard - but it did freeze in the BIOS. And then it threw those errors, but still... it was able to go up to the BIOS initially.
