Something doesn't seem right. If I were you, I would try clearing the CMOS. Then loading optimized defaults. Then checking things out. And then slowly try your settings again. CPU overclock first. Then RAM overclock.My effective clock shows up as 1900 MHz even when CPU is boosting to 4.7 Gs all core.
Also are 5900X owners considering Intel 11900K upgrade?
I have a note in there about L3 cache speeds. We are supposed to be seeing around 1200MB on 5900x, since they have 2 CCDs. However, even at stock everyone with PB sees between 600 to 700. Once you start using PBO, in my case specifically, the higher I went on TDC limit and the lower I went on EDC the worse my L3 cache scores got in AIDA64. If you read about this on overclock.net forums, most people say AIDA64 doesn't calculate this correctly and they say to ignore it, since it doesn't affect ANY of the other benchmark scores. If you enable PBO Fmax enhancer (maybe an Asus exclusive feature), you will get scores over 1100, but that kills the all core boost quite a bit, so everything else suffers. Also, they say people doing manual all core overclock are not affected by this.
Very nice. I am purposefully not pushing it that hard. Also I have crappy G Skill ram so my benches will always be behind unless I push it a bit harder. I did try curve optimizer a bit with higher numbers but it led to WHEA errors.
Right. Any other RAM it's too much. For b-die, people run that 24/7. Some go up to 1.6v. I have active cooling on my RAM, and it doesn't go above 40c under load and above 45c under load while gaming.Wow, 1.49v! I would not be comfortable with that.
It's the norm for b-die. Check out the community spreadsheets for Zen2 and Zen3. 9 out of 10 people run that. It's a $200 kit in a $3k PC. If it dies, it dies. Probably won't happen for years.Agree that is a pretty crazy ram overclock. But given the temps it should be fine.

Yes, sort of.Is there a way to figure out which core is causing the WHEA error. I can run my computer at -30 CO but after 1-2 days it gives a WHEA error.
I even ran -15 CO for 3-4 days and then suddenly a WHEA error.
Right now I have it on -15 on best and better cores but -10 on all others. I think this setup lasted me days without any errors. Going to keep it here unless someone tells me how to locate the problematic core so I can just put that on -10 and everything else on -20 or something.
Correct. If you keep getting this error during idle, then you need to keep lowering the CO undervolt for that core. So if -15 wasn't stable, -10 is the next thing to try and so on. Some people can only do -5 on their preferred cores, some couldn't move off of 0, and some people claimed to have defective CPUs where they had to do add positive voltage to get it stable.Hmm, that works. I am getting APC ID 0 as the error. APC ID 0 = Core 0 and that btw is my preferred core as well (not the best core).
I have given it -15 CO. Do you think I need to increase it or decrease it? Seems like an increase will fix it (as in putting it back to -10)?
This is the error 18 I get:
A fatal hardware error has occurred.
Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error
Processor APIC ID: 0

True. Now if only I didn't have to go through 16 freaking cores to optimize it one by one Also trying to suss out stability long term seems impossible/fool's errand if you're going per core optimization. I sort of just do a few CB runs then play some games to make sure I'm somewhat stable (nothing mission critical here).Not just scores, it also reduces power usage and heat generation so is generally worth turning on, if not necessarily going out of your way to optimize.
It doesn't do any of that. it just allows all core boost to go higher before hitting limits. Only thing that limits power usage and temps are PPT and to some extent TDC.Not just scores, it also reduces power usage and heat generation so is generally worth turning on, if not necessarily going out of your way to optimize.
EDC runs at 100% no matter what (from my observations). I'm yet to see someone who isn't hitting 100% EDC. It might lower the temps very slightly because at stock settings you will hit PPT or TDC limits quickly.Assuming you don't have PBO fully unlocked (set to motherboard) curve optimizer will absolutely lower temps, because you'll hit the EDC limit on multi-core workloads. For some reason I always hit EDC rather than TDC or PPT.
Next CTR version is supposed to work with CO, that should automate optimizing it per-core. That will be extremely useful.
