    Hi,
    Thanks Steve
    I believe most people go by other monitoring methods not in bios like hwinfo64 .... which does indeed show vccsa but yeah just gets a little confusing with terms :)
    On another note seems which is supposed to be higher also gets a little wonkey too
    In bios it always shows vccio is higher than cpusa
    Example
    vccio is always 1.....
    cpusa is always 0.8...
    But people say cpusa is supposed to be higher by 0.05.... than vccio :/
    Linus the drama boy on one of his youtube videos on x299 oc'ing he show setting the vccio as 1.1... and vccsa as 1.05...
    So which is right

    Had to toss aida64 extreme. I used it for my Aquaero fan pump controller. Aquaero can pull any temp from it to display. But it turned out that as long as Aida64 was running it kept one core of cpu running full blast all the time. Not cool.

    Switched to HWinfo as it also can provide sensor readings to Aquaero but without the cpu overhead.

    Yep.

    It you can cool your CPU all you want, but if the VRMs(on graphics cards too) don't get cooled enough, you will start to throttle.

    I have tested this by benchmarking with my case closed, open, and open with an old hair dryer blowing cool air on the VRM's, and the last one gave best results.

    My VRM (6+4) is staying cool no matter what, may change with new processor that supposed to be 104W and this one is 95W.
