  1. Good news! Your voltages are perfectly fine, this is how XFR works on Zen 2. High voltages and clocks during quick/light tasks and lower voltages and clocks during extended/heavy tasks. As long as your per core voltages drop below 1.325v under a sustained heavy load like cinebenche your're golden.
  2. Take a hairy dryer too it and warm it up a bit, then try twisting again.
  3. Is there an option for Normal when you click the drop-down for voltages for CPU and SOC? If so try that, if not try CPU on Auto and SOC at 1.05 and gradually increase to 1.15 to see if it helps improve the situation. Mine used to be a bit finicky too back on release but Gigabyte solved it. Probably just Asus being a bit lazy with the QVL testing for memory on the 3xxx series.
  4. I would go for the Aorus Elite or the Pro if you can find a deal on it. The Pro has a few QoL features such as more fan headers, more expansion slots, dual bios, better VRM cooling (especially if you're looking to upgrade in the future). The Elite/Pro also has Intel Lan whereas the Asus has Realtek.
  5. My ram was struggling to run at X.M.P settings on the earlier bios'. Kept having audio hangs and screen freezes which disappeared when X.M.P was turned off. The latest bios fixed this for me.
  6. I have the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro and each bios update so far has brought better stability (especially ram stability), more reasonable voltages, higher turbo speeds and slightly improved performance (from 4900 points to 5020 points in Cinebench R20) also 1% and 0.1% lows appear to be improved too.
  7. Probably just some left over solder flux from manufacturing.
  8. Might be worth trying a -0.1v offset on Vcore, dropped my temps my 10c. Don't forget Zen2 temps are the hottest temp on the die, even my 3800x under a 280/360 rad hits 77c at stock voltages.
  9. My 3800x gets similar temps with everything on Auto under a 360/280 rad. Applying a -0.075 offset on the vcor reduced my load temps under CBR20 to 70c and game temps to 57c.
  10. I had exactly the same issue with my 3800x/X570 Aorus Pro. For me the issue was the 1903 feature pack for Windows 10. Switching to 1809 solved the problem for me. Oddly enough updating to 1903 after a full setup and driver install on an 1809 iso also worked.
  11. I was thinking this as well, upping the Ram voltage seems to make the occurrences less common but they still happen randomly, looks like I'll have to have a chat with Corsair.
  12. Both the Ram and the SSDs where bought new with the PC last month I have the bios updated to the latest version and a fresh install of windows. I've reset the bios and I'm now trying everything on Auto with just X.M.P enabled and the issue is still happening sporadically.
  13. Hi all, Was wondering if anyone else had the same problem and a possible fix. I have a 3800X on a Gigabyte x570 Aorus Pro and 16GB Vengence Pro. Everyone once in a while the system will hang for half a second with a loud audio buzz and screen freeze and then go back to working perfectly normal. I've tried messing around with every bios setting under the sun but sometimes I think I've fixed it and a few hours later it will happen again. Anyone any ideas?
  14. That's the thing though, even the balanced power plan wouldn't settle my idle temps/voltages. I understand the difference between the plans but even chrome causes the voltages to peg themselves at 1.45v (just using CPU-Z to see voltages). Even then, I have a full custom loop with 360/280mm rad and I'm hitting over 75c under load, these are definitely some toasty chips.
  15. The only thing I've found for me that works is switching to the Windows High Performance Power plan and changing the mim/max states to 1%/100%. This lowers my idle and game temps/voltages quite significantly
