Just my Galax B-Die. Using my binning settings so nothing flash.
No batch #'s, but enh.
1.41v 8700k MSI Z370 PC Pro
Prime95 / LinX stable. Delidded and liquid metal. 94c on H110i GT. Either horrid chip or horrid board. Stock uncore.
I'd be very curious to know the batch if you're willing to pop the block off..
have you tested the 8700k you got off Headin , would be very interested in seeing how it goes in XTU if your using it in your gaming 7
Have it currently set at 5GHz & 4.5 uncore at 1.32v, first settings I set on first boot and was perfectly stable, but haven't had the time to have more of a play since. Will have a go tonight and see how it performs and whether I can drop volts a little. Also curious to see how high it'll go.
I too am curious to see how it goes between the Apex and the G7 for sure.
Think I've worked out a few instability problems I've been having too, and it's coming to the PSU rails not coping for some reason. When I have another day to spare, I'll be popping one of my 1200W PSU's in and see if it helps with the shutdowns I keep getting. You can see in my screens that the 5v/3.3v and 12v are all reading under their nominated values, generally once I start loading up.
awesome I look fwd to seeing this
8700k @ 5.0GHz, 4.5 cache/uncore, LLC-Extreme (lvl 7 I think?), Batch L729C249. No AVX offset.
32GB Gskill TridentZ 3200C14 B-die at XMP
XTU: 1.28v in BIOS
Cine: 1.24v in BIOS
LLC seems to push volts up a fair bit, on Turbo (lvl 5 I think) XTU will pass with 1.30v and Cine 1.25v.
Not sure if vcore froze on Cine pass, here's another result for 1.25v pass.
Double check those voltages Issak, looks like it's overvolting into the 1.4v range. I suspect you have it set to Adaptive/Offset not manual on the volts.
R15 looks about right, but not XTU.
Definitely manual. If my understanding is correct, VID is the "stock" voltage to chip or what it would want for given frequency at default/stock settings, and VCore/Core Voltage is actual volts to chip as set in BIOS? If yes, proper vcore would be as top entry in HWMonitor and "Core Voltage" in CPU-Z?
Should be yes, but just keep an eye on it while the benchmark is running. Some of these boards like pumping a bit more power through than usual, especially in XTU.
Re-ran with HWInfo64 open instead to make sure, overshoots to a max of 1.368v very briefly at around 3/4 way through, but hovers on 1.285-1.30v for majority of run. (1.285v vcore set in bios)
Sounds pretty in line with where I had tested. Can you check at 5.2g XTU for me, and see what it's like vs the screens I sent you. Think I tested with 1.4v in bios with my binning settings, so will probably do a bit less I think.
looking pretty good so far , the gaming 7 looks to be a pretty good board , nice cpu as well
There's some nice looking numbers in here.
I take it most people are switched on enough to use an LLC setting that allows a little vdroop under heavy load instead of increasing voltage right?
I remember when the suggestions around the net were to use the highest setting, but the overshoot on many modern boards could easily kill or at least significantly shorten lifespans!
Side note, any word on 9700k arrivals? 8c 5GHz, that's all I want
where is 9xxx ?
The motherboards switch off driving 6 cores. z370 is bullshit so you race out & buy z390 offerings later
Measure your power draw from the wall socket in " watts " You're Apex will be big
Picked up a new board and ran xtu 5.0 / 4.5. No AVX offset.

wow big diff , got to be happy with that , hav you tried to clock it higher ?
