Have you done any long-term stability tests? Passing Cinebench is nowhere near real stability. I've had my rig encoding for 4 days straight (100% load) a few times on stock settings (PBO+AOC) without any issues whatsoever.
Yes, Ryzen Master, Agree that you can not trust many other programs. Was disappointed in Task Manager, it says 4.2Ghz and RM says 14 cores are asleep and the other two are running 300-600 Mhz (not Ghz)! CPUZ and I think HWInfo are no better.
I got the quick and easy benchmarks stable. At first low volt settings the pc would crash then just the benchmarks and now still getting a feel for what is normal before I get into other bios changes.
"Load Line Calibration" was a surprise...none of the lower settings seemed to have any effect at all on voltages,temps etc. Once things settle I'll set it on the lowest "normal?" and leave it there if all goes well.
"Long term stable" will have to wait till I get into a project and have a day or two of encoding to do.
W7 to W10, a 2011 intel 3930 6 core to a 2020 Ryzen 16 core. So many changes at one time...Ick. At least my temps are down now, that was the big one for me.
I am not interested in pushing for the bleeding edge anymore. "Just want things to work".
Oh, while I'm here, anyone know a desktop fan speed monitor program that will work with X370 chipset?
The one that came with the Gigabyte X370 Gaming 5 motherboard no longer works with this cpu and latest bios.
There is pretty much no chance Gigabyte will bother to update anything but the bios for this old a product.
I tried two others... SpeedFan and something else. No luck. I want to be able to change the fan settings as I test.
I can only monitor my fan speeds in the bios so can't test my cooling under working conditions.
