" rel="nofollow - I have a motherboard z370 gaming k6, I had Z370 Extreme 4 at the same time.

The first note of G6 K6 sets the CPU Voltage Core voltage higher than the Extreme 4 at the same settings:


Gaming K6 cpu ratio Auto, Cpu Vcore auto - 1,232

cpu 4600, vcore auto - 1,264

cpu 4800, vcore auto - 1,296

cpu 4900, vcore auto - 1,392 ??? why so high

cpu 4900, vcore auto - 1,334 - second attempt after resetting everything


Extreme 4 cpu ratio Auto, Cpu Vcore auto - 1,216

cpu 4600, vcore auto - 1,248

cpu 4800, vcore auto - 1,296

cpu 4900, vcore auto - 1,328


for comparison, the MSI z370 gaming pro carbon sets it this way

cpu ratio Auto, Cpu Vcore auto - 1,208

cpu 4600, vcore auto - 1,200

cpu 4800, vcore auto - 1,240

cpu 4900, vcore auto - 1,312


Why am I writing this, I am concerned about the strange voltage jump in the auto mode, even to very dangerous 1,392, the temperature of the processor reached almost 100 degrees Celsius according to the sensors. Bios of course 1.30.

All other options in OC tweaker on auto.

I would like to note one more thing about adjusting the CPU power section. There is auto mode, fixed mode and offset. But what is the point of setting the offset mode if you can not set the core voltage core permanently? The offset mode should work in such a way that after setting a constant value it can add additional voltage to it during the load. If I choose the offset mode, I can not influence the basic Vcore value. And with one restart the processor will set the voltage very high and the offset will add to what has been set. Why there is a Fixed + Offset option to choose from other manufacturers. Why is not this in Asrock.


Another note - CPU Load-Line Calibration - there are 5 levels but again my question is what is the sense of entering Line 1 fixed v, the remaining decrease at load? For example, I am overclocking the processor, it is powered with 1.320v voltage when in standby mode and during voltage the voltage drops to 1.248v, for example. Where is the logic here, in order to ensure stability, the voltage should be regulated upwards. Why the MSI and ASUSA are able to choose the Load Line CPU both up and down. And here in Asrock, only Line 1 is the most reliable

I have the same issue.
This is because Asrock uses 2 kind of VRMs for the Z370 Gaming K6.

I have test 2 Asrock Gaming 370 k6 with different behavior. Mine gives more voltage. The other was ok.

I think this is efficiency issue. :/

I would like to refresh this topic for the same MB.
I bought few day ago a set of i9 9900K and exactly the same MB of Asrock.
When I tried to do some OC and set CLL (CPU Load Line) - I don't see Level 1 and 2.
On the dropdown list there is only Level 3,4,5. What is wrong? This MB doen't support Level 1,2 or there is something broken with MB settings?

I would really appr any help.
