Ryzen 2600 does boost when already overclocked?
 
Hi mates!
I have a Ryzen 2600 (my signature rig) and when on stock settings was always boosting to it's max, 3.9GHz on stock voltage 1.35v.
I saw that already on stock voltage, it does 4.1GHz, setting it on BIOS multiplier 41 and FSB 100 fixed.

The thing is that I have two monitor softwares, HWMonitor and HWInfo, and the first one reports a maximum core clock of 4.7GHz and the second one reports maximum core clock of 4.1GHz, so I don't know which one is lying.... I understand that if HWMonitor is right, 2600 can boost from oced speed as it does from stock speed, is this right? Or HWMonitor is wrong and there is no boost speed when manually ocing from UEFI?

THanks!

4.7ghz is wrong, HWinfo is the only software you can really trust as it gets constant updates. Also using lots of software polling your sensors together can cause issues.
Manually overclocking past your boost speed obviously negates the lower stock boost speed.


If you have something manually set to 4100mhz and something reports 4700mhz it's probably safe to say that it's an incorrect reading.

HWMonitor is plain garbage, always was. How can you even consider 4.7GHz a legit score?

I had to carefully word my post to make it nicer but yeah pretty much.

Thought that maybe, for some miliseconds and only for one core (only one reported 4.7GHz) XFR and PBO where doing it's thing!
So, with Ryzen 2600 on stock, max speed is 3.9GHz, yes? Because on stock I was reading 4.2GHz on HWMonitor.... but now I understand that maybe it's the same thing.

It's boosting to 4.1GHz due to XFR2.

Never mind the other part, just reread that you used HWGarbage.

Just use the recommended app - HWINFO64. Uninstall others. Our non-X Ryzens do not have PBO. When OC'ed it boosts to the highest value set in BIOS. In your case, 4.1GHz. Better than stock. Set Windows Power plan to Balance and Minimum Processor State in Advance setting to around 25%, so that both Clocks and Vcore downclock. My 2700 downclocks to 1.5GHz/0.8V or about 13W at idle. I keep mine at stock cos it boosts to 4.1GHz.


You got a nice motherboard. It can easily take a 7nm cpu.

Yes, that was my idea from the first day! :)
