Not downclocking at idle is that bad? Reduce life? Ryzen cpu

Hey everyone,


i have one more question about my pc
i noticed that my cpu is not downclocking when idle it just stays at the same clock speed and voltage i gave it..
i did this because if i set c states enabled my vcore goes up pretty high for my liking 1.3-1.4v but when i disabled it i have it running at 1.2v
but does running my cpu at 100% speed and voltage will this degrage my cpu over time or not rly?
i believe if you use ''high performance power plan'' itll do the same thing as if you have c states enabled so im pretty sure its fine?
since a lot of people use the high performance plan...


my cpu is a ryzen 5 1500x 3.5ghz btw
i rly want to avoid c states cause of the voltage it gives so i hope its ok

Not enough info, but I'll give this a shot. Please consider filling out your rig sig, it'll save a bunch of ???

Use OffSet Voltage Mode to set Vcore, not manual.
On my C6H/2700x PE3 OC I run Global C States set to auto without issue for down clocking/voltage.
With my 1800x I always ran a C State OC @ 3950MHz as C State required less voltage. Always down clocked as well.

With my OC I run High Performance power plan with Advanced Power Settings > Min Processor State set to 20%.
The snip below shows Freq/volt drop on idle.

The high idle voltage you're seeing is probably a very low load (not harmful). This can be verified using HWInfo64 and look at CPU Power. Maybe one or more back ground services causing usage issue?
