It seems to happen at the coldest time of the night/early morning, around 6-8am, with the system idle, though not sure if that's coincidence.

Most settings are on Auto, with just the following voltages changed manually:

I'm thinking of reverting to Auto one by one (except for DRAM voltage of course) until the instability ceases, though it's difficult to test since it happens very infrequently. The CPU undervolting is the most meaningful change to me, with the purpose of having as quiet a computer as possible by keeping heat down.
This sounds like the lightest loads at the highest frequency isn't getting enough voltage. That happens to me and the temp does contribute to that as it tries to boost higher when cooler.

What you can do instead of only undervolting as much is coupling it with a reduced EDC.

Of Course. Give me a bit, and I will send it over

tcclaviger 1904 - top

2004 - bottom

exactly the same configuration/services/priorities/cooling/ambient/windows power plan etc. Literally an Apples to Apples comparison of the same computer a few days apart...

xeizo I believe that Windows own Balanced powerplan in Windows 2004 is now the best, best performance anyway compared to 1usmus, Ryzen Balanced and the computerbase community plan 1004B. Windows powerplan gives 100p more in Cinebench R20 than the others and also feels more responsive.

I have also activated Hardware accelerated Scheduling, for now only supported on Intel IGP and Nvidia, with Nvidia using the Developer driver 450.99. It doesn't affect CPU benchmarks, but the desktop feels more smooth, in particular browsers.

crakej Holy Moley!

There's a NEW file on our Product Page!

Version - 2020/05/20 479.09 KBytes

Armoury Crate Installer
Note: Left double-click to run the ArmouryCrateInstallTool .exe file after download and unzip the “ArmouryCrateInstallTool.zip” file. The .exe file will install Armoury Crate app automatically.


They removed the bugged out useless installer from the 'Utils' section quietly replacing it with it's very own section at the bottom. I have to say AISuite is a DREAM compared to the last version of this they posted, which was bugged more than you can imagine, installed LOADS of crap services, and didn't even really work with our boards at all.

I'll not be the rushing to try this release out. Once burned and all that....

crakej I haven't used sleep on this board for some time because when the displays sleep, they come back with all the windows re-sized and not where they were before.

I use hybrid sleep/hibernate which seems to work fine....

Was there anything in it specifically for AMD or CPU scheduling?

Also remember that this tool will allow you to disable safety's in your board, so be careful as to what you do with it. If you set your BIOS To Manual Voltage, and set your VCore Manually, there is little Risk. But if you want to be able to change your voltage on the fly, then you have to set your VCore to either auto or offset in the BIOS, and in that case you can do some serious damage by setting the VID too high with this tool. So just be careful.
