Back in the days with Ryzen first release it was used to skew the temperatures because of the ~10c difference. Later AMD corrected much things how they approached the temps we see. Tdie/Tctl etc.
And they are still playing around with temp readings. If you ask me. They made it toooo difficult with their dozens of sensors. Hope they are happy with the approach.

Spoiler!
uhmm it was NOT placebo before. I have done many testings with first gen Ryzen and Sense Mi Skew. i even reported i could fake the temps with that to boost higher in PBO!
Few weeks ago, i tried again but the skew didn't work for me. Probably its now a placebo for the 3x series. Or AMD killed the whole option. Cant say for sure! Will test with first gen again later!

nick name @mtrai I meant to post this a while ago. Here are my daily timings for 3600Mhz. I have to use 1.48V on DRAM Voltage. Hopefully, you can use less.

These days you at most want to undervolt, and find the best spot between voltages and clock speed. Like, whats the point to go for 4.4ghz on the cpu @ 1.4v if you can get 4.3ghz @ 1.3v. Same with ram. Especially micron e-die. You should just leave all the voltages and settings in the bios at stock, and tweak speed and timings from there.

I did some serious testing my self with all the extra settings in the bios (trying some at the time, or all, or only like 1 or 2 settings). And never did any of these help for errors not to pop up. At most they took a couple of minutes longer to appear.
Samsung b-die (IMC permitting) seems to scale well with voltage.

LOL! This is the Daily struggle my friend! I am my own boss, so this kind of thing comes into play constantly when scheduling jobs, and more so when its personal outings. Is it bad I just prefer to stay in my room, in the air conditioning and tweak my PC, instead of go outside into the cruel world, and be bored for 3 hours????
Ha! I'm like that too as only work i've done recently is for me! Very hard to not just do my OCing! It wasn't bad any way - nice lunch and home early enough to so more testing!

On the subject of VCore, there must still be a min and max? How does it know when setting an offset what voltage to set? What is the starting point? You spoke about FIT, but I thought that worked from your current VCore when OCing? How can I see what my default voltage is?

Synoxia Then my 3700x runs very hot at idle... everytime above 50c

LethalSpoon Boosting behavior with the new BIOS is a mess. With all stock my 3700X boost over 4300MHz in CB15/20 and light threaded games, no problems at all. If I put the memory to 3600MHz (DOCP or manual) boost goes to 4275Mhz max no matter what. The funny thing is that if I set the RAM at AMD menu in the BIOS suddenly I see again bursts of 4300MHz in Shadow of the Tomb Raider or The Division 2. Asus plz!

Welcome to my daily struggle as well keep in mind I live just a few steps of the Panama City Beach, Florida white sand beaches. Been once this year for about 30 mins. Though I do get daily outings with one of my dogs. Other one prefers to stay near the house. I would rather stay inside in AC mainly at my PC. Incidentally, we just turned our 2nd bedroom into my Geeky PC man cave. So now I can shut the door if I am in the middle of something and do now want the dogs to bother me but mostly they sleep now that I have this set up in my pc cave near me.

/edit I am still at a lose on the bios menu difference between Ryzen 1000/2000 series vs the 3000 series. I can't find one logical reason it is not showing. I spent the morning yesterday extracting every module in 2601 and looking at each one of them...several hundred and no unique set up menu I could find other then I did find an additional set up module but they are both identical other then offsets. But I had to get to testing the 2 5700 XT I had just got to decide which I was keeping as I cracked the die on my original one with a cooling mod I was trying.

thegr8anand Are you sure 1.35v as daily driver/gaming is fine as long as temps stay below 85-90?
