Asus ROG Maximus X Hero CPU Current


Recommended Posts

CPU current in Sensor Panel is fine and stable when machine is under load, like running Prime 95 or some of the Aida64 stress tests. but when near idle it is all over the map.

Package Power is not similarly affected nor is VID.

Is it that CPU current sensor is only using a few bits so when running say 86 amps there is a good solid reading; but down around 3 amps it is a random number anywhere between 0 and about 16 amps.

Or is there actually a bug.

CPU Current is measured directly on certain Asus motherboards.  In other words, the Ampers value is directly read from the Embedded Controller, and no conversion is applied.  So in case the values are all over the place, it's the fault of the motherboard sensor, since AIDA64 doesn't do anything else but read the value and show it.
