    Alright, I replaced the Vardar fans on my radiator with six new ones in push/pull and then added two more NVMe drives for a future RAID 0 boot volume. I log into the computer and discover my temps have gone up on idle, 29 to 36. I look into the Task Manager to see if an app is utilizing more CPU than it should and I see this. Either something is very wrong or I have the fastest TR ever on water!

    I discovered something. Only in Game Mode does this mobo truly use SLI. In Creator Mode, it is gimped. My rough estimate is 40% in Creator Mode and about 80% usage in Game Mode. If I am to use SLI, I must use Game Mode, otherwise Creator Mode makes SLI completely useless.

    My understanding is even idle those NVMe drives run a bit warm. You seem locked down pretty well to 4.03 Ghz so not sure where that other number is coming from.

    Well, maybe that is a wrong reading, but maybe it's a "boost" that goes beyond the current settings. I thought boost was disabled when the cores are manually set though...

    Ditto on the PCIE M.2 temps being the likely culprit, they idle hotter than the SATA M.2 and of course run even hotter.

    Maybe run a line of cooling through them somehow... See if there's a PCIE card that will hold them with better cooling that can be vented before heating up the motherboard / case.

    Nice progress :)

    Well if it somehow boosted to 4.7Ghz on water, I'm going to sell this bad boy for a lot of money. hahahaha. When I switched to a custom water loop, XFR did boost to 4.15 very often instead of 4.05/4.1.

    Windoze cpu monitoring/reading in task manager has never worked as it should. Normally you get lower clocks as 4.76 instead of 4.8GHz or 4.84 instead for 4.9GHz. You are lucky. Windoze show more than normal, LOL Aka OC'd by the Win Trash:D I wonder how the new GPU reading in task manager will work when it comes with Crematory Fall Edition:rolleyes:

    Well there is a direct challenge to AMD as it seems he has caught them in a bit of a fib. Maybe with Ryzen 2 we will see the 32 core but now at 180w we would definitely need the Enermax capability of 500w TDP to handle a 32 core TR. Also a TR at 32 core would that not undermine their own Epyc processor?

    I do think though eve not OC'd it would trash a 7980XE, now that would be cool.

    Edit; thinking about it, I wonder if this is why Epyc requires stepping 2, in order to get the 4 CCX complex's running.
