Here you go... :) Single Core & Multi-Core. I've scored higher on Multi-Core before, but I lowered my power limit to get better single core boosts and found a perfect balance.

Looks good, thanks, what are your settings for power limits? I'm just using motherboard. You're scoring a good 1k higher than I am

Best I was able to get is 10500

4.65ghz all core
250W
200A
195A
-20 on all cores

in comparison, buddy of mine got ~12000 on CB20 with a manual 4.7ghz oc on his 5950.

here is a rough run, no optimization, 1.35v (high IMO) at 4.6 ALL core manual OC, 1000pts over my PBO run which was at 4.65ghz. I'm guessing with PBO and curve optimization, we end up losing some performance

Mine is the following:
200W
200A
150A
-20 on all cores
200Mhz FMax.

At what cost to single core though? You should do the single core run and note your score. My aim is the perfect balance between above average multicore and single core.

I just played 2 hours of BFV and my all core load was a solid 4.85Ghz~4.90Ghz the entire time, with spikes on single cores at 5.175Ghz at times.

For me, I want the perfect combination for gaming, not CPU benchmarks... its just a helpful indicator of performance and temperature limits.

Right, well technically I would not be losing anything, Dark Hero has the OC switch. However I really don't need all core high core speed, I just need more cores for the most part.

Now, i did some more digging...
Adjusted LLC, using PBO, I'm drawing 250W @ 4.45ghz @ 11240 But CPU temp hit 90, and this is on a custom loop, using a corsair XC7 which is a pretty decent block performance wise.

Yikes... I'll have to run some tests tomorrow, but last time I tried my PBO with higher current and power limits, my multicore score was alot higher, but my single core suffered (because I was going over 80C). I could show for comparison.

I also noticed on my setup, LLC at Auto was the best choice. I found it was picking Level 4 out of 10 (1 being the most aggressive). If I picked more aggressive LLC, my multicore score would go up, but hurt my single core score. If I took LLC to be less aggressive, everything suffered. My mobo pretty much picked it perfectly for me really. Gaming for 2 hours or so, temps never top 60~65C, which allows a constant 4.85Ghz+ all core boost and allows single cores to go past 5.2Ghz as required by quick load spikes. This is on a corsair H150i XT Pro AIO.

TBH, outside Cinebench or 3dmark, I wonder if I would even notice a manual OC vs. PBO Custom curve as I have now. I feel manual OC would leave me with higher temps in the end and obviously cap my speed.

I will try single core tomorrow with llc3 and llc auto

I found more settings to play with :) Along with LLC there is CPU current % (Auto, 100%-140% in 10% increments) this is needed at over 100%(So 110% min) with PBO & Curve optimizer, otherwise CPU Crashes). Doing some more tests.

Not really a thread jack, OP has the same CPU and can benefit from this info!!! :) plus his situation is normal for a 5950x with PBO enabled.
op hasnt been in since yesterday and this whole page and half the last one is you guys. that is thread jacking and im pretty sure its not the first time.
