  1. you have so much more DP than me https://bdoplanner.com/CessoryDaruValentine but yeah, I think it is much better with self publishing
  2. So I have had to back off on a couple of cores as I started pushing further. Right now I have best core at 0, 2nd best at -20, core that wouldn't go to -30 at -25, and the rest at -30. This is passing through the core cycling at the moment, but I'm still running it through for absolute stability. I think that I'm getting close to maximum undervolt now, I'm only reducing the offset by 1 at a time when cores fail
  3. Here is a comparison showing my improvement since -5 all cores https://www.3dmark.com/compare/cpu/86120/cpu/45702
  4. So I've discovered CoreCycler, which has allowed me to properly start dialing in the curves. I had been running -5 all core, as I did get the odd fatal WHEA error, which didn't give any info on which core was the issue. I've been at -5 all core for a month with no errors. CoreCycler https://github.com/sp00n/corecycler/releases The nice thing about WFH is that it's pretty easy to have this running all day while you play with offsets. So I discovered that my best core isn't stable on -5, and after adding 1 to it it will pass at -2. I've read reports that some people need 0 on there "best" core. I looked at the 4 preferred cores in Ryzen Master, made a note of them, then remembered that Ryzen Master numbers cores 1 to 16, everything else 0 to 15. For me my best and 2nd best are 0 and 3 on CCD0 and 10 and 12 on CCD1 (1, 4, 11 and 13 in Ryzen Master). While I had to reduce the offset for core 0, I added increased the offset by 5 to all the other cores, so -4 with -10, then -3 with -15. Here I decided to stop with the other "best" cores, as I've read a lot of people needed to, so went -2 on c0, stuck with -15 in c3, c10, and c11, then -20 on the rest. Then -20 became -25, then -30. From c0 became stable at -2, but 1 core (c13) didn't like -30 so I knocked it straight back to -27 which it does like. Now I'm reducing c3, c10, and c11 by 5 at a time to see how far those can be pushed, only testing those cores with CoreCycler for now. All this is with motherboard limits for PPT, TDC and EDC and 0MHz boost. Once my offsets are dialed in I'll look at increasing the boost by 25MHz a time, but the consensus is that offset is better, and if you can't get stable with the boost without dropping offset, don't do it. Each time you get stable with the boost, you need to check benchmarks to see if it is an actual increase or if clock is stretching and it's a fake benefit. The youtube video on PBO2 in the 3rd post above is VERY useful for the theory on all this. I've had CoreCycler running in the background across all cores (in turn) with no perceivable impact to gaming. If I leave my HWINFO64 running all day, then 6 or 7 cores are hitting 5000 or 5025MHz and the rest above 4900MHz. This has given me better scores in multithread and single core in cinebench, cpuid bench, and 3dmark cputest For example, in 3dmark: Total 18,074 GPU 18,521 CPU 15,901 before starting on c3, c10, and c11 Total 17,907 GPU 18,426, CPU 15,443 before GPU undervolt and with CPU at -5 all
  5. Slight under volt on my GPU, and I broke 18000 timespy score https://www.3dmark.com/spy/21414645 Same power, less temps/volts, and a increase in performance so small I won't notice
  6. So, PBO limits to Motherboard, CO to -5 on the 4 cores that Ryzen Master identifies as the 2 fastest and 2nd fastest, -15 on all other cores, and I beat the scores that I was getting with CO. I still have the 3800MHz RAM settings though, so got a nice boost from pushing my RAM a bit more. I already knew that these CO settings are stable
  7. Screw CTR, going to stick with PBO and curve offset. As a side note, I just got my 2 radiators setup nicely in push/pull and have replaced all Phantek's and Corsair fans in my case. It's pretty damn quiet!
  8. Very interesting, got my 5950X and RTX3080 at stock right now... but tweaked my RAM from 3600 to 3800 with pretty much same timings as before https://www.3dmark.com/compare/spy/20738628/spy/20737980 That's a big uptick (on left) vs baseline!
  9. I was having luck with mostly default settings, but PBO motherboard, 0 extra boost and CO negative -5 on my 4 best cores, then -15 on all other cores, was about to start going further (leaving the best cores), then I saw this: https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/clocktuner-2-1-for-ryzen-(ctr)-guide,1.html Now I am reseting stuff back to default in my bios, setting the LLC as advised in the video, then trying the RAM timings on my Samsung B die RAM. If all is stable, then I'm gonna hit that button in CTR and let it handle all the gubbins for me
  10. This closes on 31st May, and the previous issues are fixed apparently
  11. At the moment I've slowly backed off to negative 10 offset across all cores as I've had a couple of WHEA errors and lock ups. If this is stable, then I'll swap to tweaking individual cores and actually stress testing. Also, 1 of my Corsail ML120s started making a noise, so I just bought 6x Noctua AF12x25 and 8x Arctic P14 PWM PST to completely replace my 7 year old fans. Going push/pull on both radiators now so I can lower fan speeds.
  12. he hasn't beaten BDO, his accessories could be better, I have similar AP with no PEN https://bdoplanner.com/CessoryDaruValentine Still, that's a shit load of DP
  13. I have LLC and most other stuff on auto, just PBO limits set to motherboard with the 200MHz boost and the curve offset across all cores. Did you watch either of the videos? One mentions that the better cores could be tuned already, so dropping too much kills them. Eventually I'll go for it properly and tweak cores individually with no boost, then introduce the boost slowly after, but at the moment I'm experimenting to see what I can get away with as a starting point.
  14. I have neg 20 all cores and 200 boost, and I haven't bothered to test for stability at all. It seems fine in games so far and no WHEA warnings or errors. When I can be bothered to then I'll do it properly, but at least I'm happy right now anyway.
