Yeah, for the past week or so having Ryzen, I've been too focused on core clock instead of getting my RAM past 3200 CL14. The tl;dr with PBO overclocking is to keep it cool and reduce the voltage. Going from a -.1 to a -.11 voltage offset nets me a small gain in performance since it keeps the heat lower. Any LLC even adds a little heat that harms performance. PBO is too aggressive with boost voltages. I want to pull it down more, but the idle voltage drops too much; so in an odd twist, getting stability at idle is harder than under load... Although I could just run a constant voltage 24/7.
Maybe using Ryzen Master to configure PBO is better than using the "on/off" settings in the newest AGESA BIOS options???
