What's situation exactly? Do You have reset bios to default parameters ? 45° celcius in idle? If yes, it's not normal, it's too hot for idle. Which processor are You have?

It's seems You have i9 10920X 12 cores. Your NXZT is a 240mm?

@Thekeko what NZXT is it? If its one of the later USB controlled models in MacOS you won't have control of the pump speed, it'll be on minimum duty/rpm.

Unless you've either A) installed some other utility like liquidctl and built a startup script to enable it or B) from cold you'd need to boot into windows, let CAM set the pump speed and any RGB settings, then reboot without powering off into MacOS and it should hold the settings but if you power it down some software must use the USB to assign the settings again.

You could be border-line with the fan and pump speed in Windows where its keeping the temps just in check but in MacOS with the much lower pump speed it could be throttling?

I use liquidctl and its works great, with my X63 that 67% pump speed it makes quite a big difference to full load temps and still remains completely inaudible.

Nice! Just curious, can you post a ioreg screenshot of the thunderbolt bus? I think bios 3405 disabled the xhc controller?

Let me know if this is helpful.

That's weird that a BIOS update would get rid of that lol

I just plugged in a USB-C device in the TB3 port and it didn't show up.

Yup… lol I think it only affects flashed controllers so there might just need to be a revised firmware or a new bios lol

Maybe @CaseySJ could help answer this?

I used the Z390 AORUS Extreme firmware on Titan Ridge v1.0 card

I believe he noted that this was an issue with the Resizable bar bios. It also affects z390/490, etc gigabyte boards

We should hit up ASUS, they usually do fix if someone complaints.

Maybe we can both email them separately so they see its affecting users, but I dont know how to explain the issue to them?
