    Default AsRock Extreme4 Z370 - Vcore BUG !!

    Hello.


    I change MSI SLI PLUS Z370 to Extrem4, and i see many problems down here.


    I have BIOS 1.8 Last One on webside.




    1. DDR IS/SA - BUG - allredy know this topis
    2. Corsair LPX 2x8GB 3600MHz CL18 B-Die - one chip dont start, ok i can buy new one.. But im not happy from that.
    3. No Adaptive Vcore CPU- ok i can fight with offset.


    4. And at last VCORE! And Watage Consumption! 8700K for start, using Prime95 V29.4 Small FTT




    Extreme4 - STOCK! 8700K 1,184V 4300MHz = 180-190WAT! IT IS INSANE!! This CPU have only 95W TDP!


    MSI SLI PLUS - 8700K 1,32V 4700MHz = 180Wat!
    Asrock Extreme4 - 8700K 1.20V 4700MHz = 220-230Wat!


    Watage was readed from HwInfo and CoreTemp.


    Also i check Watage on in wall.
    Wattmeter show 100Wat in IDLE -> and grow up to 280Wat Prime95. (8700K 1.20V 4700MHz)


    So its is growing up by 180Wats. In programs i have 15-20wats on CPU and 220-230wats in Prime95
    So programs dont show ideal Wats, but it is quiet OK


    And again lets back to my CPU. My 8700K wasnt stable even with 1,32V @4700Mhz. On Extreme4 its OK witch 1,20V. I still didnt check how low i can go with Vcore, but for now it is minimum -0,12V.






    PLS TELL ME, what is going on here ??
    This is my last AsRock Motherboard? Im statring this Topic on most popular Forum in Poland - PcLab.pl.
    So U can trust my, im not only one, who will know all that BUGs.

    Looks like no-one gives a crap friend.
    Same in the actual AsRock forums - they don't reply to anything.

    They do make decent boards but their customer service is atrocious.

    As for your power concerns, you are probably running Multi-Core-Enhancement (MCE) which would be responsible for 40%+ more power draw as you are exceeding Intel specifications by running all cores at the same frequency.
    Personally, I purposely do this because I want the maximum performance and the few cents a day on electricity are the least of my concerns - this is a gaming PC, I don't care about power usage.

    If it works and performs well without stability issues then it's all good.
    If power usage is of concern to you, you should not be overclocking any components, and perhaps find a good laptop with low power CPU/GPU?

    But looks like you built a power PC, but you don't want it to use so much power? You can't have things both ways.

    I have this topic i ass now. Like AsRock Company. Last Motherboard from they.

    Overclocking CPU have sens only with Fixed Voltage Vcore and maximum LLC 5 on Asrock.
    Offset Voltage makes much more problems. When we use lower LLC Vcore 2 or 3, then Power Consumtion is not maching with vcore showing in programs under load.


    I dont use Multi-Core-Enhancement CPU :)

    Laptops are not for me.

    Thex for try, bo i know now, AsRock is a s.......t
    Next Time MSI or Asus with Adaptive Vcore :)
