dagan So I originally posted this ona wrong group
So haven't been in overclocking game in a long while, last I was did was frist gen i7,
my questions are
1. Are my voltage and temp normal under current overclock looking at hwinfo screenshot I provided
2. First time offset option, Its been stable under blender tests with offset -130-LLC Level 3(heard vdroop is a good thing so I relaxed the LLC to 3), is offset better than fixed?
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 up and down 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

8051 z390 Taichi states:

Supports Intel® OptaneTM Technology

But that's literally all that's said about it in the entire motherboard manual. Nothing about it in BIOS settings either.

I'm guessing I can't plug optane DCPMM into my DIMM slots and have them usable? So what exactly is Asrock claiming?

if you're throttling and it's not an airflow issue then RMA, and if that's not an option buy a multipack of thermal pads, they're not costly.

something like this comes with 2 of each of 0.5/1.0/1.5/2.0 mm for $5.69, buy 2-3 and you'll have more than enough.

that's not going to help unless your thermal pads are the issue so you'd still need to take it apart and take a peek.

I read the VR Loop 1 Temp in HW info... it is the VRM temp sensor as far as I know.

Maestro1337 yo why is the VR VOUT bugged out on the extreme 4 z370?

That's alarming, especially considering I have a z390 Taichi. Hopefully pook will have some input on this issue.

Would this be a case where it might be good to have a fan blowing on the back of the motherboard right above the CPU/VRM MOSFET's? Maybe even add some ceramic heatsinks?

eminded1 im having VRM Overheating Issues on my z390 Taichi, I ordered some Thermal Grizzly Minus 8 Pads 2mm and im thinking about replacing the stock ones on VRM.. sometimes during stress I feel the vrm heatsink and its cool to touch and I feel board from back and its blazing hot..

so heres my current setup
i9 9900kf @ 5.1GHZ 1.28V with a 0 AVX Offset Stable in prime95 latest version, small FFT with avx, and im on Level 3 LLC with an offset voltage of -0.010, and its stable.. Temps never get above 87c and average around 83 during max stress....

But ….. the VRM heats up soo fast up to 110c plus in less than 3 minutes. so I put a 120mm high speed fan infront of the vrm until I put the pads in.. but yea I was also thinking about modding in a water cooling vrm I wonder what one would fit the taichi???

With the 120mm Fan Blowing over the Taichi,s VRM it cools it to a crisp 87C im gona replace pads which involves taking the whole computer apart somtime soon and ill report back if It fixed the VRM temps.

anyone else have the z390 taichi, and experiencing high VRM temps? at high speeds 5Ghz+ AVX Load, while running prime95 smallfft +??? let me know thanks.

Thanks for the reply

I was asking if its normal to have to reset the BIOS on this board if memory training fails. The past few boards would just boot into "safe mode" and say overclocking failed.
