    Is it worth while running with out smt for the sake of 100mhz and slightly cooler temps?

    If the physical cores alone are enough for your workload don't see what the downside would be

    yeah, just seeing it was worth it. only avg 2-4 points gain over 3.8 single core on cb15.

    couldn't see any eco mode, but all power saving and temp throttle was disabled.

    Ended up rolling back to 3.8 with smt on, seems to do the job

    Just catching up on the following channel, and they used a window mounted air conditioner to cool an overclocked ryzen 3800x and easily achieved 4.6GHz all core at under 60°C. I'm gonna have to look into this, because I need to cool my PC room, and it's a bit inefficient turning on the split-a/c in the main room and blowing it across the house.

    Here's the results;

    And here's the video;



    Now interestingly, they were only pulling ~100W on the CPU package at the bottom of the screen shot when at default speeds, but are now pulling 140W with this basic overclock. Like I said a couple of pages back with my PC, I usually only see 120W, but did once see over 150W! Maybe window a/c is the key.
