That's exactly why we have this software.

Which OS are you on?

Could this be used for on-the fly turbo?

No restart needed. Works the same as P-state overclocking though BIOS.

I just tested this. First I made sure all my AMD advanced core options were auto, and my core voltage settings were back in auto.

Restarted, set my settings using asuszenstates.exe, including the necessary VID. System entered OC mode and started to behave extremely odd. Was getting whole system freezes, blank screens, gray screens, random logouts, etc.. Unfortunately I applied at start up, so I got those same symptoms repeatedly. I ended up loading system recovery from a USB drive and recovered to a restore point I just created before running it.

I'm back to my normal settings. I'll just wait for a new BIOS that makes sure P States are not lost when power is lost.

It's probably because the ratio is changed while in the OS, you need HPET enabled to use this if not on AGESA 1004a or newer (BIOS 0079/0081/0082/0083). That's the same criteria as Ryzen Master. An alternative is to set same ratios in AMD CBS, and only use this software for voltage.

I'm on 0079.

Ok I was able to install, had to install the service first before installing program. After install same session Win 10 Creators Edition it worked. Voltages and P0 as well as P2, didn't try P1.

I accepted to automatically start at startup and to be placed in system tray.

Upon restart I was stuck on the bios screen to use Del or F1, hitting Del or F1 did not do anything. I then turned off the computer (not power down) and upon restart it cycled 5 times before I saw the bios screen, this time it had F2 to configure. I went into the bios and loaded optimize defaults.

Upon restart I was able to sign into Windows except the screen (both, have two monitors) kept on flashing util they went black. Restarted several times trying to get to the task manager to kill the program before it started but was unsuccessful.

Did a safeboot, disabled program as well as uninstalled the program in safemode (which worked) - Restarted without issue.

So it did work on controlling the PStates just some rather funky stuff happen upon restart. This is with bios 81.

Hmm ok, then enabling HPET should solve it. Or set ratios from AMD CBS and voltages in OS.

Same as above, you probably need to enable HPET.

Will try that later, plus I think I will let someone else have some fun this time smile.gif. Thanks

Would you have access to the "BIOS and Kernel Developer’s Guide'? Or know who might?

Well up until 1 hour ago the only place to do any pstate oc was the BIOS, so that's not implied? My bad, I'll be more descriptive when talking to people that aren't aware of long standing open issues with this motherboard...

also good to know that

Is "whining"
Before an hour doesn't matter because you were commenting on the app's value.

Im very well aware of the issues. In fact I've helped bring attention so many of them. Many of us have been pstate overclocking on the C6H before you knew it was even possible.

You're toxic to communities like this. Elmor and others work their butts off to make this one of the best boards, if not the best, and people like you are dismissive of that work.

I think the point is that this program is a stop-gap measure until this stuff is added to the BIOS. With AGESA 1.0.0.5 being a huge priority, the BIOS team is probably focused on getting the super-critical stuff working in BIOS. P-states will be added soon enough. Once the stuff that is important to 99 percent of those buying the board is taken care of, the stuff that 50 percent and 30 percent of the customers want will be put in.

It's funny how you keep changing your story. First it was an issue because I didn't say it was explicitly pstates "in BIOS" were not functioning.
Now I'm toxic to the community because... I don't kiss ass enough?

The app is 100% useless to me and anyone else not using windows as I commented in my reply directly to Elmor. Him and the team behind the scenes are the reason that most people buy Asus, that doesn't mean everything that he puts out is gold, nor that one can't point out shortcomings (which he acknowledged many times).

Don't cry, it will be okay.

Yep that does seem to be the case, I agree.

This is mostly AMD area of the bios and work, so the answer would be, I do believe AMD. ASUS is doing some extraordinary stuff here and very Cool! The program does work getting pass AMD's issues on exposing PStates.
