XTU showing undervolt protection with BIOS setting off

Adrianh85

I have a 12900ks with ASUS Pro WS W680-ACE, using the launch BIOS I have the option of UV protect off but in XTU is shows reports as being active. This basically stops me from doing any XTU value editing/tuning. I have contacted ASUS customer support and they referred me to ask intel.

 

Looking for a guide or instructions on how to correct this problem, any help will be appreciated

Thank you for your response.


The board BIOS should support altering the CPU and/or RAM values, this is usually applicable for Z and X chipsets, as some other chipsets can support different levels of overclocking/undervolting. Have you confirmed this with Asus Support?


Also, based on the fact that you have everything up to date, our recommendation is to reinstall the OS and then check if the issue persists.


Please let me know of the outcome.


Best regards,

Hello Adrianh85,


Please be aware that the Undervolt Protection (UVP) setting needs to be enabled in order for XTU to work properly. Feel free to check the article Unable to Start Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU) Because of a System Incompatibility (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000093813/processors/processor-utilities-and-programs.html)


Let me know if you have any concerns.


Best regards,

I am able to open XTU without receiving the pop up error stated in that link, will enable OV protection in BIOS and re open XTU to see if it fixes the problem as stated in link.

Thank you for your response.


Were you able to enable UVP in BIOS and check if the issue persisted?

So far your topical troubleshooting steps have not helped, I just went back to the old school method via bios.

It would be nice if one of your agents contacted me to grab logs of some sort to help actually fix this.
