    Default Let's Attempt the Final Say in Throttling

    Alright guys, I'm trying to get some answers here and I hope you guys can help. I have an Asus M5A99X Pro R2.0 now. Every time I run a stress test, I notice my CPU throttling once the socket gets to about 72c. On the other hand, my core temp is running around the 60c range as well. Yes, I have disabled any and all power saving features so I know it's not that.

    So here's the deal. When I was running the MSI board and the VRMs got too hot, my chip didn't throttle, the test would just fail. That was at 90c though. Shouldn't throttling be CPU related and not motherboard related? I'm asking because a.) nobody has a clear answer and b.) I think I might have a chip that's going bad or at least lost it's overclocking capabilities. Tell me what you think the correct answer is: Is throttling caused by the CPU or the motherboard?

    (On a side note, I've had issues with an Asrock board throttling but the VRM temp was much higher as well, and I've had issues with this chip throttling before but it was at around a 70c core temp when I was benchmarking an air cooler.)

    Whoops, one more possible culprit. Could it be Windows, possibly from 8 on?

    I have to wonder if it could be throttling due to lack of power, rather than temps. Isn't that a thing with AMD CPUs and the way that their turbo is set up? I have a memory of it, but it's been a while since i have really used AMD so I am a bit foggy.

    Same problem on the same MB reported here - CPU throttling questions [Solved] - AMD - CPUs

    Guys, I'm testing the CRAP out of this. It looks like Asus Digi+ power control could have a thermal thresh hold of about 70c at which point it throttles the CPU. The reason behind this could be a couple things: a.) Some Digi+ components aren't as good as others and throttle worse than other boards, making it a dice roll on how much OC room you have. b.) Something is not disabling properly even when set in the BIOS, so that throttling happens and it needs to be looked into.

    Right now, I can't find any setting that adjusts this temp or disables the throttling. I've disabled every thing that should allow me to just run the temp up if I want to. Some reason, I could disable this on the MSI board I had (and returned), but the VRM temps went so quickly out of control that I couldn't get more than a 4.2 OC without stability issues or a ghetto fan hanging on the heatsink. I'll keep you updated if something comes up from some support I'm trying to get.

    Not yet. Still waiting on a response from Asus. I have figured out that the VRM does throttle the chip at 70c, but the adjustments in Digi+ doesn't change that figure at all which is odd.

    Okay guys, figured out what was going on (I think) and Asus just sucks. So the VRM will throttle at anything above 70c regardless. The thing is, setting the temp in Digi+ doesn't change what temp it throttles the CPU. I complained to Asus and they said I should just return the board. So I said fine. So here's what it looks like. It seems that Asrock boards can go to the mid 80s, maybe even 90 before they'll throttle the CPU. Asus boards may all be at 70, but at least the Crosshair V Forumula Z will have a hard time getting to that temp. MSI will actually let you disable any throttling on the VRM side, but after about 90c, any stress testing will become unstable. It seems that FX chips will throttle around 78c themselves, but I'm not really sure of that. Don't have any info on Gigabyte boards.

    If I get a hold of a Gigabyte GA-990FX-Gaming anytime soon, I'll update on that as well.
