Hi everyone,

I own a R5 2600x, running on an Asus B450i and ram @3466mhz tight timings and - 0.06v cpu offset. (fully 24/7 stable)

Just by switching to PE level 2 just gained me +100 score on cinebench. Woa, zero difference in temps really (running a dark rock 4 on it).

Would it be worth going for PE level 3? Would probably have to reduce the -0.06v offset I'm running right now though right? As it probably requires more voltage?

Regarding XFR Enhancement / PBO:

[XFR Enhancement](

It's on Auto, which would mean it's ON? Is it worth to turn it on?

And regarding CPU Power Phase Control. Is it worth going for ASUS Optimised (or anything else in this section that I could tweak) instead of Auto? Would it help if I turn on PBO?

[Digi+ Power Control](

Basically, I know what PBO is supposed to do but is it worth it? It's just annoying that Asus don't include these in their manual so no idea what Auto really means here.
