    what are the easiest / simplest setting? I went to 1.71 BIOS (MSI tomakaw x570) from 1.51 on one of my kids PCs today. I also installed latest AMD drivers, nvidia drivers, network drivers. I've used the previous settings and my RC15 scores (both single / mc) are lower now. What is the...

    Is curve optimizer better using BIOS v153 over v151? I didn't have much luck with v151 and curve optimizer.

    Ryzen 5900X overclocking help

    what about RAM latency? thanks in advance :) What I found suprising with the limited time, testing and knowledge, I thought the RAM latency will improve when going from 3600CL18 to 3800CL16. Both read/write speeds did improve, however if I'm not mistaken it only improved 1ns (63ns vs 62ns).

    Ryzen 5900X overclocking help

    Happy New Year All!!!... This is it... for gaming at 1440p and up, GPU will be taxed the most. However if you are doing a lot of CPU intensive tasks, maybe there is a benefit of it. Regardless I recommend undervolt your 3080 TUF. My kids have been gaming 1440@144 for the last 2 days with...

    Thanks, much appriciated. Please let us know how AIO move goes and if you have any success trying MaxT settings. I'm affraid you have to wait for new AGESA 1.1.9.0 BIOS. BTW: try undervolting your 3080 TUF gpu... it is totally worth it and easy!!!

    Ryzen 5900X overclocking help

    I've seen this behaviour... I think we have to wait until AGESA 1.1.9.0 (at least it works on Asus mobo with 1.1.9.0) . According to this: CPU Frequency Cannot Go Turbo Frequency Note. This issue should be common issue on all motherboard vendor This issue happens when using Ryzen 5000 CPU +...

    Ok after 2 days I'm done with two 5900x builds with 3080 tuf GPU builds for my kids. The specs are in my sig. I'm using the latest bios for tomahawk x570 based on AGESA 1.1.0.0. Fresh install of 20H2 windows 10, x570 drivers directly from AMD, latest network driver. So.... I totally...

    Ryzen 5900X overclocking help

    KickAssCop and I we are using BIOS based on 1.1.0.0 AGESA. Perhaps 1.1.9.0 improves on curve optimizer and vcore offset. I don't think vcore offset works with the current BIOS I have. I'm just finishing my second 5900x build. I will post R23 results tonight.

    can you please share your settings / screenshots for noobs like me :-( Can you please post your CR15 and CR20 scores for SC/MC config. I've played with curve optimizer and I don't see any benefit over using PBO. I will post my scores later on.

    First 5900x CPU had 3 pins broken, thank God I was able to fix it with xacto knife. BTW... The AMD packaging is total shite. I don't blame B&H. The 2nd 5900x CPU looked ok, I will examine it closely tomorrow.

    So... I've only put together first rig... First 5900x CPU had 3 pins bent, I fixed with xacto knife. I wish AMD would make the package more 'travel' friendly. :) Everything seems to be working fine. My case fans are out of whack and need to be adjusted/tweaked in the BIOS. They are on the...

    The twins arrived today, the pins look undamaged :) MSI just released BIOS updates for some mobos with "Update to ComboAM4PIV2 1.1.9.0". My x570 tomahawk is not one of them, I guess I will go with its latest v151. Wish me luck.

    Try clearing CMOS by shorting pins (refer to mobo's manaul), after reboot clear/reset BIOS settings to defaults and start from scratch. We are flushing/using beta BIOSes, who knows how stable these things are. Is your AIO top or side mounted? gerardfraser reported huge positive...
