fire up ryzen master and take some screen shots so we can see what's going on
Which is better running 3900X stock with pbo enabled or running fixed multi at either 42 or 43 for an all core at 4200 or 4300mhz at say 1.3V.
I have as per sig below my memory running at 3600Mhz , it wont go higher but thats fine.
Mostly just surf the net & play fps games such as bf1, but would like to see my pc run optimized & hopefully not have high cpu temps.
Thanks for posting that video.
I shudder when I see people pumping 1.4v+ into these.
I would love to see an explanation on why these things idle with such high voltage though. So many people seem to see that number and run with it ignoring the voltages with a full load.
As long as you are fine with a reduced lifespan, there is no problems with any voltage. Ofcause this would make the 2nd hand market a bit of a Russian roulette
Testbench with a screen, inverter and car battery. No post = no sale
The Taichi is now finally avalaible at some places to order. Only thing I don't like about this board is the monolithic PCI-E SSD heatsink. Would make changing an SSD a chore, and a royal if you have a custom loop with a GPU in it. Still its a very flashy board, the usb 3.2 header is in the right place, and its T-Topology, which means I should have no issues populating all the ram slots. Its ordered now along with my 3950X. Now the waiting game begins
Saw your post my idle was jumping between 1.094 & 1.45v so I turned off hardware Info, core temp & GPU-Z opened Ryzen master and watched it and Voltage between 1.13 & 1.16v just had chrome open I think it is boosting because the monitoring programs are pinging it to get a reading, so a couple of cores wake up go to 4.xx mhz voltage goes up to 1.45 for a split second but these programs are constantly taking readings so voltage always looks high. My opinion only, just saying Ryzen is a complicated beast
you mean more of a russian roulette
They're only going to idle at high Vcore if they're idling at max turbo (so likely not really idle - or CnQ and C states areoff in bios , etc)
one thing I'll say about the ryzen, is the power management is crazy, sitting at idle I'm at ~300mhz chewing ~11w
(according to ryzen master)
Oh how the meme tables have turned
Its going to be interesting to see what the 3950X sucks down in juice when its at idle.
Found some Crucial Ballistix Sport LT AES on Amazon so snagged it, last pair for $155 delivered, on the last day of my free prime membership. I didn't get in on the $145 lot as money didn't permit, but the free shipping expedited countered the extra $10
Until a rogue windows service spikes it to 100% for an instant
Still baffles me the old random idle spikes.
I think mAJORD hit the nail on the head.
I need to check my c-states and CnQ.
With nothing open and just windows doing housekeeping I see it spike over 1.4v with clocks ~300MHz.
Not that I'm concerned it's just something I've noticed.
I know I think ryzen has been doing it for3 generations now but with first gen everyone was more worried about getting their Xmp profile to work my 2600X spiked to over 1.5v while idling like you I just dont care anymore I do think that ryzen master is the most accurate and so it should be cheers
New bios coming;
hmmm wonder if it'll make any difference?
It would be nice to have PBO working again
