i'm using 800 without issues

i came to this board from an Asus Formula since 1 week and i'm really happy with it, this can keep my cpu 0.06v lower than asus
for 5.3ghz (9900ks) Asus needed 1.42v, Z390 dark keep it really smooth @ 1.36v

but there is one thing i can't find out, how to change the dram:bclk ratio?
on Asus i remember you could choose 100:100 or 100:133, in this board i don't see any option

TMatzelle60 How is the Onboard audio. Looking at doing a Gaming/Streaming/VR Setup and want to know should I get the EVGA NU or is the onboard good?

BUT, and it is a large one, I cannot get P95 to run past 3 or 4 minutes before temps hit 100C. So stability testing is out of the question at 5.2 with P95.

Not sure what to use to test stability other just playing the games and seeing if it holds up.

Going to 5.3 is a major jump though and needs at least 1.4 target, with peaks to 1.48 and then the temps do hit 90-100.

Price is high, for now (Canadian $ with delivery cost me 800), but I am happy with it.


Oh well thats different. Of course temps never get past 65 gaming. Thats a totally different ball of wax than running OCCT for ten minutes and seeing your temps get out of control!

Personally you should turn down your overclock as your cooler is not up to the task. Your either going to throttle or something is going to burn up and be more specific when you mention your temps such as idle, vs gaming, vs Prime95 load AVX or no AVX.

Nice overclock though!

Tried the Robo OC and got it to 5.2 @1.4v, temps mid 70's on a Corsair H110i that's about 3 years old.

The first 2 CB scores were after the Robo OC. Seems low to me from what I have seen others getting, ~2200+, but that might improve with a manual OC.

Installed the new 106 Bios today and will take a deep dive into OCing this weekend. (Totally new to this as I was on an X79 and the UEFI and other stuff is all new to me so any helpful advice would be appreciated)

Liking what I am seeing thus far though.

TahoeDust I have my OC running real nice on Bios 1.01. Anything in the updates worth the change?

Hydroplane So far I've left my VSA, VCCIO, and PWM frequency on auto. Will be interested to see your results on those

Ya, I am still tinkering here.

That run was done while on Adaptive with Target set to 1.35.

Since then I watched luumi's video and making some adjustments.
Using Override, adjusted VSA and VCCIO, PWM Freq etc as he suggested. This has brought temps down considerably (mid 70's-low 80's) but couldn't get CB to complete at 1.4.

Will keep working it though.
