Is anyone experiencing the same issues as OT did in his T1 & M1?

Namely talking about the CPU issues he's experienced with the Asus X570-I and B550-I boards paired with Zen 3 5900X and 5950X CPUs - on two separate videos now he's experienced boost clock issues and given up on using those boards with those CPUs, without further elaboration.


So I am almost certain that I have this exact issue. I have a 5600X and B550I ROG Strix in a Dan A4 with a NH-L9A w/ fan duct.

On completely stock settings, I get single core speeds up to 4.65GHz and my benches for single core are in line with reviews, albeit up to 68-72C.

However, when I do multithreaded benchmarks, my boost clocks only go up to about 4.15 GHz and my temperatures max out at about 75-80C.

I consistently end up with scores that are about 10% lower than what most people are getting with stock settings on the same CPU

Moreover, while using Ryzen Master, it shows my PPT limits are set to 76W, not 88W, as you would expect for an AMD 65W CPU. It seems like there are all sorts of issues with it hitting power draw limits with plenty of thermal headroom and not boosting clocks any further up where they are supposed to be

Also, with these CPUs supposed to go up to 90 or 95C, ASUS Really needs to fix their fan control which requires fans to go up to 100% the second you cross 75C.

I would not be surprised if their bios is all sorts of jacked up for Zen 3

Might be a different issue from mine as I'm getting low single core scores.
But did you try the workaround I posted above? In AI Suite switch to Power Saving then back to Performance.

Hey guys I just wanted to ask if anyone fit a RTX 3080 EVGA FTW3 UlTRA Gaming in the T1 ?
Also I would like to know if anyone fit a EK 240 AIO?

Yep a couple people have for the ftw3. This is the one that topped my google search.


Ek aio is well documented. Heaps of builds with them. I built one for my brother last weekend.

Thanks for your quick reply! Problem is that this post shows only the GPU with NO Power Cables attached to it. I know that the Gpu fits according to its dimensions but I dont know if there is enough space for the PCIE power cables. Do you know anyone who has a complete build with this gpu?

I am not running AI Suite. I'll have as to check it out.

I am convinced I have what Ali at OT had. 10% lower all core clocks despite high-power draw

There has been a build where someone has fit this GPU in the case with power connectors and everything. You just need to build the case around the GPU, and you might also need to cut away some of the plastic on the power connectors on the GPU end to make them fit better, but this isn't necessary. But if you can, I'd go with a TUF model from ASUS. They are quieter and cooler, and will fit a lot better.

My 3080 Ti plans are cancelled, will be water-cooling this baby instead.

I figured since in about a year I'm going to upgrade to Hopper/RDNA 3 if they bring huge perf-per-watt improvements as rumored, I'd rather enjoy a good card I got lucky to buy for MSRP a few months longer.

Started my T1 build log here:

Still waiting for the case itself though, but got almost all other components in.
Going for single rad full custom loop with a 3080 - did some first tests on an open test-bench and I'm pretty confident it will work out just fine🤞, got lucky as my 3080 undervolts well enough.

Isn't the TI rumored to release in just a month or so though?

Not denying you'll still have a plenty fast system, but I guess we'll see.
