  • Has anyone had any experience with using "Intel Adaptive Boost Technology" Z590Dark/11900k

 Hey y'all, I was trying some stuff the other night goofing around with the Intel Adaptive Boost Technology, and found out some interesting stuff.
 
First, when I set ALL my CPU stuff (voltages and all) to auto, and use XMP1 with my ram, I get a SUPER fast pc just using the Intel Adaptive Boost Technology.  The system benchmarks better than any overclocking I have tried, and then settles back down in both voltage and speed and cools right off.  To me, this feels like a GREAT 24/7 way to get the best out of my system.  It's like having an overclock boost only when you need it.
 
 BUT there is a snag (isn't there always), the CPU "Under Full Load Benchmarking" gets HOT FAST and I mean hot, some cores (my hotter running ones) shoot right up to 97C, and the powers/package shoots up to 311W, (I have no idea if this is safe or not), but the voltage stays reasonable, under 1.5 like around 1.47, which one of the Techs over at the intel forums says is intended and is fine as long as it doesn't run there 24/7. NOW, I know people will mostly say that it is always best to do a manual overclock and use a set voltage and stuff like that, and I'm sure that it is, but I have to say, that the system seems to run SO much better using this automatic method, it feels really stable. 
 
 I did try to set a voltage to try to control the heat and such, but then my system won't post at all, and I have to reset the BIOS and either turn all my CPU stuff back to full auto or turn off Intel Adaptive Boost Technology. It seems to me that Intel Adaptive Boost Technology needs to control all that stuff for it to be stable?
 
 SO, bottom line, I was wondering if anyone is using Intel Adaptive Boost Technology for everyday use and if so, how are you controlling heat?  (like setting a VDroop preset? or a specific voltage? stuff like that)
 
thanks
 
PS: Keep in mind I am VERY new to a lot of this stuff, tweaking voltages and stuff, so you gotta be specific and use terms that I can actually find in the BIOS when suggesting I try something.

Yes, it works for benching and quick runs, but the tech is right its not good for 24/7 stable running cool machines. Most wont use it cause it will overvolt the crap out of everything, way higher and unnecessarily high. So just be careful especially if your using high dollar rarer spec components.

 Oh man, it's a shame they can't perfect this, the system seems to run so much smoother like it's perfectly tuned.
 
 BUT yeah, the voltage spikes wayy too high.
 
Anyways, I'm glad I asked.  Thanks man

I have used the active boost with my Z590 FTW and 11900k quite often with no issues on cooling. It takes all cores to 5.1GHz and stays there. My cpu temps while gaming never go beyond 60-62c and my fans are pretty quiet. I do however have a massive case that I love for its cooling ability’s which is the EVGA DG-86 case and a Corsair 420mm LCD water cooler. Running 5.1GHz does not make a difference in most games but does seem to run smoother on COD Cold War and Far Cry 6. With Active Boost turned off, all cores go to 4.8GHz and temps are much lower however around 48-50c.

 Interesting, do you have all your voltages (CPU settings) set to auto? 
 
 With Adaptive Boost on and all my voltages and settings set to "auto" I get crazy hot temps and voltage when the system turbos up.  Mine also goes up to 5.1 on all cores and the benchmarks are awesome, but the heat is just scary.  I have the EVGA AIO 280mm and a Phantek full tower case.
