The latest version of HWInfo (6.2) shows the PPT, TDC and EDC. You'll quickly run into the stock EDC limitation with this CPU.
I think I need to look into the mounting of my AM4 EK Velocity. I did some prime95 128k/128k stabillity testing today and hit thermal limit (95c) trying to get 4.4 stable at 1.325 volts.
I have two 360 rads and the coolant temp never went above 27.5C during my tests.
My All Core P95 testing produced these results:
4.3 - 1.225 vcore
4.35 - 1.2625 vcore
4.375 - 1.2875 vcore
4.4 - 1.325 vcore (thermal limit)
where in the bios are PPT, TDC, and EDC located at to adjust them? Appreciate your feedback and thank you for your post!
