Check my sig, I do have a Crosshair. It looks like there is a newer BIOS than the one I am running, but I'm already running AGESA patch C so it should be more or less up to date.
Very nice... He has tomahawk x570. How are temps? how do you like zen3 so far?Hmm... I wonder what board gerald has? Looks like its coming to no boards.
That aside, you don't need it really. Geralds numbers are only a few points from my basic crap strix-e. And on the strix-e I'm stuck at 130w-140w draw, can't go any higher lmao.

Good to hear I think it is early BIOS adaptation issues. Maybe it is blessing in the sky I didn't get my 5900x yet LOL.Die temps in r20 maxed at 68c and r23 was 74c. It is good so far, but asus' bios sucks ass as there's some bug in it capping performance. I can boot at 4000:2000 and w/o any added voltage, it looks stable passes prime but gives a bazillion whea errors. Thus I'm running 3800:1900 stock soc voltage and hampered by tdp limit.

This thread lists few current BIOS issues. It includes Whea errors (most likely caused by RAM settings).
Windows Event Viewer Error (Even System Restart)
Note. This should relate to individual AMD CPU but not motherboard
Symptom: When FCLK is higher, system is more likely to receive WHEA Logger error and sometimes can end up with BSOD and reboot.
Workaround: Lower FCLK for now and wait for future BIOS update
Gigabyte users are having problems too. Fecking 2020.... You would be surpised how many users are pissed off at manufacturers and are switching brands. I've seen at least few peeps switching from MSI to Asus or Gigabyte... LOL. Another interesting bug that impacts everyone is this one. I wonder if anyone is affected by it and what are the side effects..... Maybe I'm not readinging this correclty, but this tells me PBO + any manual CPU voltage adjustment will screw CPU's Turbo Frequencies. Isn't this will feck up all testing you'd do? (assuming you are touching voltage manually). I've see so many posts with people saying they are seeing weird results.... Hopefully next BIOS releases with future AGESA patch D will fix most of this major issues. I wonder if gerardfraser has seen any problems related to it.I know about the broad whea errors so it's not surprising however it is damn annoying since for Asus this was supposed to be an area they excelled at. But apparently MSI has got them beat this round. MSI's effectively tackled the whea error and gotten their bios advanced much further along than Asus. Asus' recent bios' are craptastic. Just check the amd motherboard subforum and you'll see what I mean. We have to wait until they get off their asses...
So I’m completely unfamiliar with AMD overclocking. Is PBO better than all core OC for most cases? The few reviews I’ve seen suggest that overclocking does little to nothing for Ryzen CPUs, especially these new ones.
I’ve got a 5950x on the way that I’m building in a lian li 011 xl + dual 360s and a distribution plate so I should have sufficient cooling capacity but I’m unsure whether an OC would net me anything in games. I game at 1080/240 hz with a 3080 for reference.
It sounds like the Curve Optimizer is coming with PBO2 in a later update for most BIOS: https://www.anandtech.com/show/1626...ptive-undervolting-for-ryzen-5000-coming-soon
For sure, but with my 5600X, it's just frustration trying to stabilize boost overrride. Curve has increased my stable all core clocks, which is amazing, but getting better single-core performance is proving elusive. Not even +25MHz will work when tested with single thread in Prime and I've tried everything.The whole point it is fun messing around.
I cant use DOCP on any of the Asus BIOS updates so far. I can only use 2606 on my Asus X570-i and that has DOCP completely disabled with my 5800XRobert Hallock said there are some new AGESAs coming. I dont have an issue with FCLK over 1600. Running 1800 now without a beta BIOS. I wish I had time to mess with the curve optimizer. I think i could probably get slightly higher boosts.
