I've noticed the following behaviour with my Aurora RG configuration (i7-7700K).
If I overclock in the BIOS using OC LV2 everything works as expected, if I use CPU-Z I can see the clock speed rise to around ~4.8GHZ. If I hibernate and then wake the machine and run the same stress test with CPU-Z the clock speed drops back to ~4.2GHZ.
If I restart the machine (not hibernate) then everything back to ~4.8GHZ. It like the hibernation/waking process is ignoring the BIOS settings.
Send me a private message with the service tag so I can escalate this with engineering.
