Hi, I'm trying to OC my 7700k and while it can do 5.8 ghz just fine on my phase change for legacy benchmarks anything with avx will cause it to power throttle to 3.8 ghz. I've made sure I have no avx offset and disabled everything that should limit it's power draw in bios however it keep throttling once any avx load is put on it. Doesn't matter if it's XTU, whycruncher, or CS:GO it will throttle down to 3.8 ghz rendering all core OC pointless for those benches. I'm on a maximus ix apex and I just cannot figure out what's going on. Can someone help me find what setting or jumper I'm stupidly missing that's causing it to throttle down? I'm on phase change so it's definitely not temperature.
