    5900x boost question

    So CPUz and core temp both show boosting at 4.7-4.9 right now but hwinfo shows effective speed at 4.2 and judging by my cinebench score compared to 4.7 manual oc I think it’s running at 4.2. what are you guys using to monitor your speeds and voltages? Doesn’t seem like a lot of the tools I used...

    I also did not see any curve optimizer on this board to set undervolt.

    5900x boost question

    I enabled pbo and set everything else to defaults and I still have weird behavior. CPUz says it’s running at 4.6 now but hwinfo says the effective speed is still 4.2. My r20 scores are also wayyy down compared to my manual 4.7. Is hwinfo showing wrong info on these new cpus? I need to test to...

    5900x boost question

    And 1.35v is plenty safe for these chips and it runs reliably benchmarked at that voltage. let’s not overthink that part.

    5900x boost question

    I enabled pbo in the bios but even with everything else at stock except for enabling pbo 4.2 is still the max it will go and in games it still doesn’t even boost to that reliably. You can definitely tell that it’s using multiple cores in game but not at max speed. I don’t get this amd stuff...

    5900x boost question

    So I'm new to AMD and just built a 5900x system with a 3090. I can't seem to figure out boost though. I have hard set the bios multiplier to 47 and 1.35v and am stable at that setting with an all core boost at 47. When I do benchmarks in windows I see that all cores boost to 4.7ghz and it shows...

    **The state of GPU's and their purchasability** This is a rant post, anyone else agree with me AFTER you read this?

    Nvidia has been paper launching since the 10 series. This paper launch however is wayyyy worse than the others. My local microcenter in Fairfax has not had a SINGLE card since release day. I check every day multiple times and no cards have shown in stock plus I know a guy that works there and he...
