Ryzen 7 1700 Undervolting Result

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I did a bit of research of undervolting AMD Ryzen 7 1700 CPU for those who interested.
This CPU is already very efficient and from my test, undervolting doesn't make this CPU much more efficient.

What I do is simply lower the Voltage on PState0, PState1, and PState2 by 0.1V. under heavy load, it is still possible to lower the voltage by 0.125V and on idle, the lowest I can get is 0.175V. But I choose to keep it at 0.1V for consistency.

Specs
CPU : AMD Ryzen 7 1700
Motherboard : ASRock AB350 Pro4
RAM : 2x Crucial 8GB DDR4 2666 MHz 16-15-15-36 1T 1.2V
Graphics Card : Galax Geforce GT710
Storage : Samsung SSD 960 EVO 250 GB + Seagate Barracuda 4TB
Cooling : OCZ Vendetta 2
Total Fans : 7 Fans including HSF Fan
PSU : Seasonic P760 (80 Plus Platinum)

Anyway, here are some results of power consumption and temperature test.

IDLE POWER CONSUMPTION
Default : 61 Watts
Undervolted : 56 Watts

IDLE TEMPERATURE
Default : 30 °C
Undervolted : 29.5 °C

LOAD CPU-Z POWER CONSUMPTION
Default : 115 Watts
Undervolted : 110 Watts

LOAD CPU-Z TEMPERATURE
Default : 44.8 °C
Undervolted : 46 °C

LOAD HANDBRAKE POWER CONSUMPTION
Default : 134 Watts
Undervolted : 128 Watts

LOAD HANDBRAKE TEMPERATURE
Default : 47.9 °C
Undervolted : 46.9 °C

Although the power consumption is consistently lower, it is lower by 5 Watts. Temperature also only decrease by 1C.
Performance is virtually similar since I only touch the voltage and not the clock speed.

Nice :)

 

I too found Ryzen to be very well adjusted from the factory - you can lower the voltage, but power consumption doesn't decrease a dramatic amount.

 

In my case however, the real surprise was when overclocking. With just 0.025V over default steady state VID (no turbo) I can clock it at a constant 3.82GHz for an overall power consumption increase of 46W -+11W (tolerance of the measurement gear).

Mine doesn't seem to like overclock that well. To hit 3.7 GHz, I already need to bump up the voltage by 0.1 V.
I don't feel like going higher because power consumption already increase by significant margin at 3.7 GHz.
The good thing is, even at 3.2 GHz, Ryzen 7 1700 already handle everything I do really fast, especially compared to my older rig which use Core i5-3570K.

Why is your Load CPU-Z temperature higher with undervolt? headscratch.gif

Did you switch the two results by any chance?

I know that this thread is over one month old, but I thought that I'd post this here since I got some interesting undervolting results with my 1600. My Asrock Taichi defaults to 1.2375 VCORE @ stock. I overclocked my processor to 3.6 Ghz without touching the VCORE and Prime95'ed it for 12 hours before trying to bump it down a bit. It's been running at 3.6 Ghz stable @1.16875 for 24+ hours of Prime95 blended (as I type this). I was also playing GTA 5 while running Prime95 and had no problems for over 2 hours of intentionally trying to blow up as much stuff while driving as quickly as possible. I think I may try undervolting it even more if it passes Aida64 and MemTest. Is anyone else doing this? Are my results normal or did I just luck out?

I manage to underclock my ryzen 7 1700 3.2 ghz all the way to .981v(-.2v offset). It's fully stable and the lowest my motherboard allows. I don't have anyway of checking my wattage. When I tested prime 95, my max temperature hit 58c. for some reason on my Asus prime b350 motherboard, the bios update 0613 upped the the voltage on max load to 1.003v. 0609 kept it at .981 while stress testing. I will look into it later. I tried to copy the undervolting settings to my friend's rig and it would not boot even with stock clocks. The most I heard people did was -.1v. Maybe I won the undervolting lottery tongue.gif

Well, I dropped the voltage on my 3.6Ghz overclock to 1.00V even with my Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB PC-3000 running at 2933 16-17-17-34 using the latest 2.36 beta BIOS build and it ran 3 cycles of Memtest, and is currently going on an hour of Prime95 blended with HWMonitor open (which caused my system to crash every time with 2.30 bios) as I type this. I'm going to play some GTA 5 for awhile and see what happens... Then run Prime and Aida64 tests before possibly trying to tighten up my RAM timings. I don't care about a huge overclock. I want a stable and fast overclock using as little VCORE as possible.

your lucky you can even overclock your ram. My motherboard won't post if I overclock it at all.sad-smiley-002.gif. the AGESA 1.0 update broke my 2666mhz overclock. Asus motherboards has had the most problems

That sucks... It wasn't stable doing 3.6 @ 1V so I set it at 3.7 @ 1.1875 and it seems to love it. It's gotten further than the 3.6 @ 1V. My RAM was stuck at 2133 until the Taichi 2.36 beta BIOS upgrade. Now I can run it at its advertised speed so I'm very happy right now. I honestly don't see a need to OC it any further (blasphemy, I know). It's plenty fast right now. When I build a new system, I like to put a mild OC on it, then run it that way up until I start itching for an upgrade - then I get all crazy with the Cheese Whiz. That way, I don't have to worry about damaging the processor - I'll just buy a new one. Same with my last build - an FX-6300 @3.8Ghz@stock VCORE that I pumped up to 4.6Ghz before breaking down and buying my Ryzen.
