dejanh Careful with the new 1901 UEFI on the Zenith Alpha board (perhaps the same applies to original Zenith). One user reported exacerbated memory issues with this release. Not sure if flashback is possible. I do not dare test ATM because I need my machine to work.

gupsterg When enabled or if [Auto] is defaulting to enabled, it will skew tCTL based on Sense MI Offset.

Core Performance Boost: [Enabled] when CPU stock, [Disabled] when OC'd as have 1950X. If I had a 2xxx series and was doing PBO/PE OC then I'd use [Enabled], if I was doing manual OC then [Disabled]. Regardless of CPU used if manual OC is done, ie +25MHz over base clock, as CPU would enter OC mode it gets disabled even if you try to force it on.

What does the above setting do?


Did you have Core Performance Boost set to Enabled/Auto at the same time?

Extreme Tweaker > Overclocking Enhancement [Disabled]
Extreme Tweaker > Tweakers Paradise > Sense MI Skew [Disabled]

I set above on all ZE UEFIs (last used was 1701, had setup since launch) and never encountered issue on CPU temperature, may that have been stock 1950X + OC RAM or OC 1950X+RAM.

1901 BIOS (ZE)

Hi,


Has anyone tried out the new 1901 BIOS for the ZE (not Alpha) board?



I cant find a change log anywhere either, does anyone have any info on what the new BIOS has to offer?

goldenleaf If anyone is trying to upgrade to Windows build 1903 and is unable to do it meaning of keeps failing and rebooting and undoing the update try disabling the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and your bios

I ended up doing a clean install and it failed to boot into Windows for an unknown error after that I disable the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and the install went fine.

I suspect that I didn't need to do a clean install but only needed to disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth because the 1903 update is almost like a fresh install of Windows

This is advice for those that have a zenith extreme alpha motherboard

MacMus 32 cores is a sweet spot... 64 cores are f.. insane.

I'd like a little bit better single core speed on the next Threadripper. Not sure if I want 64-cores. My 32 is total overkill.

It may be something for one-off builds or custom workstations, but they will never be able to get any part of the market at a big company with professional datacenters.
RGB and bling-bling is not something for a DC, where performance, reliability, power consumption and cost are the major selling points.
