  1. @Myze Are you running MSI Dragon Center or any similar control software? There has been a problem recently with some software like this reducing the turbo power limits during some games to absurdly low values like 0 watts. This causes constant power limit throttling so your CPU runs like a slug. Start by running CPU-Z and make sure that it reports 8 cores and 16 threads. https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html With any sort of load, a 9900K at default specs should be running at a minimum of 4700 MHz. What are your turbo power limits set to in the BIOS?
  2. Try running ThrottleStop. https://www.techpowerup.com/download/techpowerup-throttlestop/ Check the Log File option on the main screen before running 3D Mark. When finished testing, exit 3D Mark and then exit ThrottleStop so it can finalize your log file. Post some pictures of how ThrottleStop is setup and attach a log file and I will tell you why your CPU is throttling. The log file will be in your ThrottleStop / Logs folder. This program was originally designed for laptops with throttling issues but it also works great on intel's desktop CPUs. Turn on Nvidia GPU m
  3. @HazeAU On my Asus board, HWMonitor does not show any VIN voltages like your board shows. When you told me your Cinebench voltage, I thought for sure that you were running at 5000 MHz. Here is how much voltage my 10850K needs to run Cinebench at 4800 MHz. This is why I said that some Gigabyte boards are being generous with the voltage. I think you still have lots more room to undervolt if you ever decide to go further. You might chop another 5°C or 10°C off your temps. When using ThrottleStop, I am using Adaptive voltage set
  4. @HazeAU How did you get ThrottleStop working to control your voltage? I think in the Gigabyte BIOS you have to enable DVID but I was not 100% sure. I find it very easy to chop at least 10°C off your temps. Are you running Cinebench at 5000 MHz? Does ThrottleStop show any throttling or does it maintain this speed during the benchmark? Watch Limit Reasons for anything lighting up red. At 5000 MHz, my 10850K VCore is at 1.305 V so you might still be able to undervolt reliably another 40 or 50 mV. Bump it another -25 mV and do some testing. HWMonitor does not report the offset voltage
  5. On an Asus board, set it to Offset and set the offset to about -75 mV (-0.075 V). Boot up and compare your VCore reading in HWiNFO to what you are running now. Use more or less offset until you get about the same amount of VCore that you are running now.
  6. No. I suggested turning on the Log File feature while running ThrottleStop. It logs the most common reasons for CPU throttling and provides options to correct these problems. A screenshot or two of ThrottleStop while your CPU is throttling at 1600 MHz would also be helpful. The most common cause of severe throttling like this can be solved by clearing the BD PROCHOT box in ThrottleStop. Your CPU is under the 100°C thermal throttling temperature set by Intel so there is no reason for it to be throttling to 1600 MHz.
  7. Does CPU-Z show 1.38V when running Cinebench R20? Some Gigabyte boards are generous with extra voltage which the CPU really does not need. I am not familiar with Gigabyte motherboards and their BIOS options. I had a look at the manual for a Z490 Aorus Elite. It listed 13 different voltages and voltage modes that you can adjust. That is not very helpful. No further explanation, no nothing. You will have to head to the forums or to Google to find out how other users set the voltage on their Gigabyte boards.
  8. The 10850K model was created because Intel needed to sell all of the CPUs that were not good enough to be 10900K. To increase yield, they find new markets for their second rate cores. They would rather sell a CPU for less money than throw it in the garbage. They lowered the rated speed 100 MHz and increased the voltage so these lottery losers would run stable. The 10850K is definitely a 10900K reject. Why is it throttling in Time Spy? Is it getting up to 100°C and thermal throttling? HWiNFO64 lists all of the reasons why an Intel CPU is throttling. When setup properly, a 10900K
  9. @HazeAU Try running Cinebench R20. https://www.techpowerup.com/download/maxon-cinebench/ Run R20 at default voltage and see what you get for power consumption. Run this test again at -100 mV and see if there is an improvement. Usually ThrottleStop voltage control only works if SVID support is enabled in the BIOS. When you open the C States window (press the C1 button), what does ThrottleStop show for C state activity when idle? Post some more screenshots if you want some more suggestions. Your CPU multipliers are going over 48 when lightly l
  10. @TravisP Run HWiNFO64. It will show power consumption and reasons for throttling. At 61C, it sounds like your CPU is not running at full speed when stress testing.
  11. The 10850K are 10900K rejects. Intel cranked up the voltage so they run reliably. That increases power consumption so it is not unusual for the 10850K to run hot. If you reduce the default voltage, you can significantly reduce the amount of heat they put out. Here is an example. If the turbo ratios are set to default settings, the 10850K can use the 52 multiplier when lightly loaded and run at 5200 MHz. This is reduced to 48 as more cores become active. Your BIOS might not be setting the turbo ratios to their default settings correctly. Many users like to disable the C stat
  12. This is an Intel 16 GB Optane memory module. Here is some more info about this technology. https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/intel-optane-memory-faq Typically a computer would have one of these and a separate 1 TB hard drive. Try turning off Secure Boot in the BIOS, reboot and go back into the BIOS and see if it can find and recognize your 1 TB hard drive.
  13. Do you have Thermal Velocity Boost enabled? The CPU will slow down 100 MHz when it reaches 70°C if TVB is enabled. You might also be hitting a turbo power limit. Do you know what those limits are set to? Run HWiNFO64. It will show you what throttling flags are being triggered. Are you using an AVX offset? This will slow the CPU down when it encounters AVX instructions which Cinebench uses.
  14. @Mahbub Go in the BIOS and undervolt your CPU if you want to reduce heat and power consumption. Intel typically sets the default voltage 50 mV to 100 mV higher than it needs to be set. Intel does this so they can guarantee long term stability but this extra voltage is not necessary. Read this thread to get a better understanding of what is possible.
  15. You said this was working correctly so what have you changed since then? Post a screenshot of ThrottleStop 9.3 while running a TS Bench - 1 Thread test. https://www.techpowerup.com/download/techpowerup-throttlestop/ Does the 1 Thread test run at 0.48 GHz? Did you try increasing the turbo power limits?
