Just some questions for anyone that may have any idea or has the same motherboard as me:
Motherboard is the Asus ROG Strix B550-F (WiFi) with the latest BIOS (Version 0805 as of writing).
I can't for the life of me find the following settings mentioned in the first post. Specifically, the EDC, TDC, and PPT settings, I'm not sure what "PBO handoff" is, but the other PBO options you mentioned are on (scaler 1x, autoOC of +200)
I was able to find everything else in the main post, VCore offset of -0.05 and other settings were applied yesterday due to the BIOS and power plan recommendations here (Wasn't able to find "PPC Adjustment = PState 0" in the following post either): https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comment...e_like_1usmus/
The above Reddit post is what eventually lead me to the post here to get temps even lower, without dropping performance all that much (if at all), and by default the board doesn't have PPO enabled. Temps are noticeably better combining the two, haven't done benchmarks with both combined yet (tomorrow sometime), so we'll see how that goes.
Intention is to test with both sets of BIOS settings enabled, no idea if the BIOS settings in the Reddit post counteract the benefits/intentions of what's in the main post here at all, and test with both the power profile linked in that post and with the Windows 10 Ultimate Performance Power Plan (What I was using prior to a forced upgrade from my 6700k).
Edit: Another thought occurs, I've set the SOC LLC to "Normal," which I assume is Level 1 (there are 7 levels), it's mentioned in the main post that this should be set to high, I have my RAM's XMP profile enabled, so does it could as "Overclocking" in this context, and thus I should set it to "high" (If yes, not sure which of the 7 levels would be considered high).
