bob16314I would change the Vdroop so the Vcore doesn't go up so much under load.
bob16314Whichever way you have to change Vdroop, increase or decrease the value (however it works on that board), to get the Vcore down more under load..And make sure you have the latest mobo BIOS installed.
kelkel1I presume these are BIOS voltages? Have you tried using a DMM to check the actual voltages at the test points?
bp7178IIRC, CPUZ will just give VID values not VCORE when used with the Z390 Dark.
kelkel1It sounds like the motherboard (or the BIOS). If you had another processor to swap in, that could help narrow it down. I would probably submit a support ticket request.
thebskiHave you flashed the bios recently? I only ask because I had a Dark board and 9900KS and it was doing similar things on Auto and Adaptive voltage settings. It was is if I had no voltage control. Something happened that killed the CPU and the board so I am currently waiting on replacement parts so can't really test anymore atm. I only tried bios 1.07. I didn't know if yours changing behavior coincided with updating the bios. Maybe there is a bug in 1.07.
kelkel1Have you tried the XOC BIOS?
kelkel1XOC BIOS offers quite a few extras, but not sure it would help with your issue. It does appear to be quite stable, for me at least. https://xdevs.com/doc/_PC...E399_flashtool_093.zip
