So yea, he doesn't have it wrong....
If you run PBO on auto.... that's "Auto overclocking" ALL cores.
Core performance boost increase clocks of individual core/thread and generally only activates a single core/thread during the overclock.
AND my point being even with a manual overclock with a locked clock and voltage would still use very little energy at idle. The Green power savings is really a funny feature. I have no idea why overclockers ever shut it off......??
Remember he's running a B450 not a CHVII like yourself....
If you use PBO and CPB, you are not overclocking anything, the board and cpu are doing it for you.......
This is static overclocking.
I'm trying to figure out why people really think they are overclocking while utilizing the features of SenseMi. lol.
Nobody mentioned SenseMi. And do you know what ASUS' Performance Enhancer Level 3 and 4 actually do? And while his B450 probably doesn't have the VRMs to run as well as my board that truth would also apply to any manual overclock he wished to set.
Performance Enhancer Level 3 and 4 allows for the CPU to behave as if he had set a static overclock for all cores while maintaining the capability of his CPU clocking fewer and single core loads even faster. It's really the best of both worlds. It will give him the performance of a standard overclock on all core loads without losing the higher speeds he could achieve with fewer and single core workloads.
Also, leaving PBO on Auto means auto overclocking? A CPU behaving within spec by definition isn't overclocking.
Learn what you're talking about before laughing at others that have countless hours invested into both the CPU and features they are speaking about.
