If you're using PCIEX8_2 for the PCI-E x4 M.2 card, the VGA in the first slot would run at x8. But if you use the PCIEX4_3 slot which is through the chipset PCI-E lanes and not the CPU, the VGA would still run at x16. The on-board M.2 slot is dedicated from the CPU and not shared with anything else. GPU-Z is usually very reliable for checking how many lanes are used by the graphics card.
Yes the PCIEX8_2 for the m2 card.
The "strange" is that all the Info software show X16 for the Vega64.

Also a Radeon Vega64 VGA card.
Well, all the software I use to check the speed of my prymary PCI-Ex indicate a x16 run (HWInfo. AIDA64, SIV).
Both NVME drives run at x4 speed.
How is possible (for my calculation I've: x16 Vga + x4 NVME + x4 NVME = 24 PCI-Ex lanes)?
Thx in advance.

I'm not back at Asus.

Some feedback:

Fan Xpert in AI Suite works fine with really applied Smoothing times, even if I had to set them to 63s to calm down my fans.

A weird side effect is that HWiNFO is now unable to read the fans speed variations: it always show still values despite I hear the fans speed to change.

As working fans is more important than their monitoring, I keep AI Suite.
Thanks for this advice.

EDIT / my bad: The HWiNFO sensors reading somehow crashes after any change applied by Fan Xpert but restarting it restores its normal behavior.
In other words: finally, everything is fine

AI Suite's interface is a mess, but I've had zero issues with it when just setting and forgetting a fan curve. It only uses a few megabytes of RAM for background processes once set up, which I find worth it for the upside. It'd be nice if there was a stand-alone version of Fan Xpert though.
What's weird is that my Prime X370 Pro, which is a much mid range motherboard than the C6H, always handled the fans perfectly, with a still working Smoothing time, without any need to install anything on Windows.

With the C6H, I started with the bios 6101. I don't remember if the Smoothing time issue was already there but according to your kind answer, it probably was.

I uses Fan Xpert from AI Suite with the bios up to 6401 because my fans didn't work at all.
I don't remember it made the Smoothing time to work though.

I gonna try again AI suite to check this.
However, there's no point to me to install the 7003 as I only have a 1700. I probably gonna keep the 6903 forever.

(I know you don't work there anymore, was just wondering if you knew from your experience, I hope your new endeavours are going well).

Level 2 is not tinkering with any voltage or the precision boost scalar, it only adjusts the maximum allowed power and current. I believe it can be considered "safe".

It should work as intended through the internal regulator, but I'm not aware of any way to verify or measure it.

anyone find out what the deal is with 7003 being blank yet?

To make things even weirder, 7002 is gone from the official BIOS releases list. You can still download it, though.
