Its still beta, and I use the AIO_Pump header with 1001 installed. Nothing is wrong with it on my end.

i suppose my use of the header may be a bit different, as i have a ekwb pump plugged into it that is powered seperately by molex.

Reset cmos and try re-imputting your settings, without using profile? Also load optimized defaults for good measure.

After updating to the 1001 my PC refused to post if my RAM was overclocked and even when I got it to post, I couldn't achieve the same clockspeeds I had before and temps were 10-20 degrees higher so I reverted back to 0803. However the problems carried over to the old bios. Temps were still abnormally high and I couldn't reach my previous CPU overclock even though I checked for stability before updating to 1001 merely an hour ago.

I am assuming that the new microcode in 1.0.0.3 ABBA, which is supposed to have more aggressive boost behaviour, is causing this problem. But I have no idea how it carried over to the old 0803 BIOS which is supposed to have 1.0.0.3 ABB. Does anyone have similar experiences? Is it possible to rollback AMDs microcode to check if it's the culprit?

rv8000 Anyone experiencing display loss and AA post code on some cold boots? PC seems to boot completely but I can't get any display signal until I restart.

Section31 Thanks. I do notice that temps have improved at manual oc. Not sure what they did.

Best Cinebench score I've done yet. At 4400/4400/4200/4200 to boot. Still on Shamino's beta 0017 bios with per CCX overclocking. Does ASUS new bios, or The_Stilt's include the per CCX overclocking ratio section, with VID control? If not, I will probably stay with things as they are for now.

Tips for Cinebench:

- Close all, and I mean all, running programs and background processes. Including AV/firewall, disconnect from Wifi or pull your Ethernet cable out and reboot when finished.
- Optimize Windows for speed. I use a combination of programs and methods to achieve this. Including registry hacks, and since I'm an old man and didn't even want to move from Win7 SP1 to begin with, I used Ccleaner and uninstalled/removed nearly every Modern/Metro app I could since I'll never use them anyway. I also have updates blocked/disabled and a ton of Windows services blacklisted in my firewall. Hopefully you have Win10 Pro, if you don't you're pretty much screwed when it comes to a lot of this. (I use Linux as a daily driver OS and Windows gets used solely for benching and gaming, and I am very confident in my firewall (Comodo CIS Free/Asuswrt-Merlin Router) and network security to protect me. As well as using Linux 95% of the time anyway.)
- Disable unnecessary services. A good guide for this is here: http://www.blackviper.com/service-co...onfigurations/
- Disable unnecessary startup tasks/background tasks through Task Scheduler and Group Policy. You can also try using autoruns from Microsoft themselves to disable a lot of this. Be careful though and I'd suggest making restore points/a backup of your OS drive before trying to strip it down incase you mess something up. (I went to school for Systems Administration and we mostly used Windows 7 at the time and learned a lot about Group Policy, Scheduled Tasks etc). Autoruns from Microsoft: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sys...loads/autoruns
- I do use Ccleaner but I would agree that registry cleaners are worthless. However, another program I've always used for tweaking Windows is Auslogics Boostspeed, which has a Tweak Manager that easily exposes and allows you to disable Cortana, telemetry, and apply around 100 other different tweaks easily without needing to edit the registry, find them in the horribly organized Group Policy manager, etc. This program seems like it might even be able to disable a lot of the Windows 10 resource and bandwidth hog nonsense on Win10 Home (like p2p Windows Updates being sent to people on your connection)
- Disable all extraneous visual effects like Aero Peek, animated menus, etc. from System in the old control panel (where System Restore is), Performance tab.
- Run Cinebench off your boot drive. If it's a NVMe SSD this can improve scores somewhat, and I use the Ramcache program that comes with our motherboard (this is pretty much the same thing as Samsung "Rapid Mode" on SATA SSDs.)
- The biggest one: People have said it before but it's an old benchmarkers' trick for Cinebench and it still works now. Once the program is loaded, open Task Manager, go to the Details tab, find Cinebench_R20.exe, right click it, and change your process priority to "Realtime". When you run the benchmark, you will hear your system go under load (fans at 100% etc) but not see Cinebench update at all, it will appear like a black box until it finishes completely, and the system will be unusable while it's rendering. Don't touch your keyboard or move your mouse at all. This alone can add 200-300 points to your score
- I do this but am unsure how much it helps, I figure it can't hurt. I unplug every device that is unnecessary from USB, audio jacks, etc. so that really nothing is connected except keyboard, mouse, power, and monitor(s).


- It is probably arguable how much of this is necessary, I'm just giving my tips. And again, Linux is my daily driver OS so if you don't want to make such drastic modifications to optimize Windows- that I admit, may not be totally necessary or affect the score much at all nowadays like they did 10 years ago, it would make sense. Then again, my score is a few hundred points higher than any I've seen so far, and my chip doesn't overclock well and is running at much lower clocks for the benchmark in comparison so maybe my tips will work for you too.

Hope this helps.
