    Thanks for the update. Will be testing with it more today but the temperatures of the CPU already seem a bit higher than with BIOS 1.08.
     
    Now if EVGA could recompile E-LEET X with a later CPU-Z SDK so it correctly identifies the i9-9900k as being "Coffee Lake S" rather than "Kaby Lake".

    Can you give me a screenshot of that so I can send to our SW team?  Thanks.

    z370 FTW. 8700k.
     
    No improvements to vdroop. OC required 50mV more for stability. About 3-5C hotter with same settings.
     
    No apparent improvements on "8th" gen.
     
    Edit: Vdroop is actually a lot worse. I put set 1.283V with vdroop disable, and see voltages up to 1.424V. What the...?! This is getting ridiculous.

    We are actively working on creating a BIOS to address the Vdroop performance, but it is not contained in this BIOS.

    Thank you for posting this. I was starting to think it was consciously being overlooked so z390 could be perceived as overclocking better.

    I am going to buy the z370 classified k can you put the ram with oc at 4000 mhz or more with this board or are there problems?
     

    someone has this badge with i9 9900k? I would like to know how it works with oc?

    I have a 9900k in a Classified K but it looks like I may have lucked out on the "silicon lottery" as far as voltages I need to achieve very good results. I need 1.415V to get a stable all-cores 5.1GHz using BIOS V1.09 which will see peak package temperatures around 88°C during UL's TimeSpy Extreme CPU tests (full custom EKWB loop). I'm far from an expert overclocker and I still need to experiment with VDroop as I have currently have it set to "auto".
     
    PS. I'm future, please ask your question in one place only, don't spam multiple threads with the same request. (I have links to a few 3DMARK benchmarks in my "MODS RIG").

    Still broken, can't boot Windows when CSM Support is disabled using the iGPU on Z370 FTW (last working version is 1.06, the version my board came with and kept the first BIOS flashed as), and only after installing Intel's graphic driver is installed in Windows 10 (1809) in BIOS versions after 1.06.
    Intel's current driver is "25.20.100.6444" (DCH), and it's still broken when disabling CSM support in the BIOS in the latest versions, and only occurs directly after installing Intel's graphic driver.

    Should I be pursuing Intel for this issue? 

    Based on disk activity, the newer BIOS versions put Windows 10 into recovery/boot repair mode but I can't even see what is happening then. I know the system has not successfully booted, and not simply an issue that my TV doesn't support a given mode, because network shares, Remote Desktop, the works, do not work.

    As someone who built systems and if anyone looks inside my current ones, you only see "EVGA". I'd like an answer. EVGA PSUs, motherboards, graphics, etc, and I can't seem to be afforded a simple answer on this issue. Solicit me an actual phone call to figure out what is going on.

    I went with EVGA because they were solid. EVGA motherboards aren't feature rich, but they're solid. I'm looking towards other vendors that might appreciate my money more in the future, if a simple issue as this cannot be resolved.

    Boot the system and go into the bios, it will tell you in the bottom right what version it is

    I recently purchased a Z370 Classified K for a new pc build.  I planned to use the new i5-9600k, and understand this new bios will support the 9600 chip.  However, it was mentioned elsewhere it's very likely my board has an earlier version of bios, and therefore will not boot with this cpu.  Is there a way to update the bios to 1.09 without a cpu?  Or does EVGA offer something similar to what Asus offers to it's customers (loaner cpu for the purpose of updating) or other update service?  If not, it makes this board obsolete for new buyers wanting to install the latest cpu's.

    If that board has an replaceable BIOS chip you can request an updated chip from EVGA

    Would it be fair to say that even though the Z370 supports the 9th Gen., it really isn't conducive for overclocking the particular chip? I ran an 8600k on it for almost a year with relative ease at 4.8 ghz. I tested a 9700k on Z370 FTW, and I could never get it stable and had terrible voltage regulation when trying to stabilize it. I tried a z390 board, and the same chip achieved 4.8, Prime95 AVX 0, with 1.25 volts. Max temps were in the low 70's on prime. I reach 50 on CPU when gaming in Battlefield V.  IMHO, the Z370 will run the chip, but don't except any real overclocking out of it.

    I have a z370 FTW also and I noticed that it does some really whacky things above 48 multiplier. I'm not sure why but it either undervolts and crashes or adds like .2 volts over what you specify and risks damaging your chip + heat.
     
    From what I can tell, the bios fix between z370 and z390 addressed that issue and overclocking is much better. I have a sneaking suspicion that they want to hold onto that advantage until initial sales burn out on the z390 because there are people who will pay the 500 to side-grade to z390 dark just for those bios fixes.
     
    A rep did state that they're "working" on a fix for z370, but that has yet to been seen, and it over a month and a half ago.. so who knows if its still coming.

    I for one that would be a fair comment to make. Reading all the issues with z370 anf 9th Gen procs seems to suggest the bios updates are lacking somerhing.

    hi,
    i have a cold-boot problem with my intel 750 pci-e ssd card. board is a z370 classified k 1.09 bios. sometimes the board needs at least 2-3 starts before recognizing the card. fast-boot off will not work. any workaround ? there are z370 owner saying the card needs more boot-time that the mobo doesn´t provide.
    i know that the z370 chipset is not supported by intel but the 750 drive is old, maybe you can have a look at this.
    thanks

    Re: Latest 1.09/1.10 BIOS Updates for Z370 2019/02/11 19:04:21 (permalink)
    I just updated my bios from 1.05 to 1.09.. One thing I DO NOT LIKe is that I noticed in my fans that turns.. Bios 1.05 was running smooth not showing fan shapes spinning.. When it has updated I now can see the fans while it spins.. That make sense? All fans.. Man what did it do? mind you I"m Deaf so I can't tell if it's spinning funny is one of the reasons I got RGB and tempered glass to see if fans spin or stops spinning then I'd know it's not working.. Now it looks like it's spinning slower? I'm running 5 Earmax using the control board to control all fans.. 
     
    I updated the BIOS cuz I'm getting the EVGA 2080 FTW Ultra as replacement for my EVGA 1080 Ti KINGPIN that went bad.. So any suggestion or tips please share.. 
     
    Ahh One more thing.. I'm using CAM software to monitor my cpu speed and all.. I noticed that it's acting erratic.. as for Clock speed.. jumping from 700 to 4K Mhz.. it's not consistent.. I do noticed that my CPU temp has dropped big time.. Does this mean the FAN is running really fast? is why I'm seeing the fan shapes spinning?

    It sounds like the bios update reset your fan speeds first of all. They're probably running in pwm now and able to get lower rpm, which is why you're seeing it. You can change fan curves in the bios.

    As far as the 700mhz thing, that's a power saving feature that probably wasn't enabled before you updated. Basically the multiplier is able to dynamically respond to windows requested loads. If you would prefer it stay at max multiplier you can either a) disable the power saving options in the bios or b) select high performance power option in windows.

    Unless you're overclocking and have stability issues, it's generally best to let windows do its thing and save power when it wants. You'll get the same performance under load and less heat/noise when idle.

    Also, since the cpu is underclocking itself, that may also be why the fans are spinning slower. Lower temps .
