Hi,
MSI was caught scalping their own gpu's to miners or anyone silly enough to buy them at inflated prices so buying from msi ever is unlikely for myself but feel free to.

ASUS has way better bios something you should dig into instead of bailing out for another board.
Post your predictions sp # score it's on the right column on nearly every overclocking bios page it will show you cooling rating too

Anything below 5.0 all core is 2018 level performance.
Do you really think there is any noticeable difference between 4.9 and 5.1GHz?

You bought a 10850k. It's a 10 core that wasn't good enough to be a 10900k. Not really sure why you expect it to run as well as a 10900k, or are surprised when it doesn't OC very well...

My 10850K runs better than a stock 10900K. My 10850K might only do 5.0GHz all core, and 5.2GHz single core, and a 10900K might do 5.2GHz all core, but I think I can live with the 4% performance difference.

Hi,
Yeah 10850k was/ is a good value chip but really boards are not all that different sure isn't worth changing seeking lower temperature/ voltage.

ASUS TUF are good boards, can you post your OC and bios settings? Can you post your temps during p95 HWiNFO?

Hi,
No
Tuf is a okay board likely better than anything msi has.
10850k is a low bin 10900k bottom line
Most available 10900k's are pretty bad because they are way too voltage hungry which it seems you already have with meager cooling.

I'd personally wait for prices to drop on a 10700k or pop for one now micro center shows 350.us now think they are still too high though.
On paper TUF boards look fantastic for the price. However, I've had to return 2 of them since December. Both a z590 and a B550. One had a bad M.2 slot and the other wouldn't clock memory to XMP no matter what sticks I tried. In that time, My 2 MSI Carbons, a Tomahawk and a Unify have been perfect and all of them clock well. That being said, I have been happy with my B550 Strix board. It's all kind of funny because 10+ years ago it was MSI I stayed away from because I had a couple of DOA boards from them. Most board manufacturers put out good boards and a couple of crap boards at every tier. It's always been that way and probably always will be.

I've also had very good luck with MSI boards in recent years.

Looks like the same thing here! I remember that their AM3/+ motherboards, looked more like a motherboard casino, at best!
But during the Tomahawk era, (current) I'm loving it! My experience with the B450 Tomahawk in 2020 and 2021, led to me getting the MSI MAG Z490 Tomahawk for my Comet Lake build!

Golden chip 5.3ghz on the 10850. I can only get 5.1 out of mine at that voltage. 5.2 takes 1.42 V and by that point my cooling cant deal so good. Also that ring clock is nuts.

Back in the day Asus mid range boards were the shit, now a days though not so sure. I had a mid range Asus Z77 board that I watched die slowly, and I recently bought a midrange Asus AM4 board that was doa. The back side of the board looked like shit. The new guy totally made that one.. I hope. Their ROG stuff is pretty good though.. I thrashed my old R3F for a decade before I sold it. My Strix B550 has been awesome, exactly what I am used to.

I shouldn't have sold my R3F. I try not to think about it.

The back side of the motherboard looking like poo?! That sounds like you got scammed by a seller that damaged it! Watch out for third party sellers on Amazon!

This is only for bench. 24/7 daily settings 50/47, enough for me. 1.20V Vcore, 4133 MHz memory speed. Super CPU for gaming at allcore 5 GHz. Fine temperatures, low voltages.

17k points with 180 W, not bad. :) My 11700 (non-K) does 14k points with the same 180 W.

GPU at 15 °C, how do you do that? :wtf:

I continued to do the overclock. I fixed 5355 MHz and there is no WHEA error.
1.42 V Vcore (VRVOUT), stable and 18216 points.
Yes, it's over 300 watts already, and 80-85 Celsius.

Other Settings:

CPU Z 5425 MHz

CineBench R20 and R23 5355 MHz:
