thegr8anand Since yesterday my cpu is shutting down with cpu over temperature error as soon as it hits about 85deg. The only thing changed was the chipset driver but i don't think it should have this effect. Anybody know what could be causing this. I run cbr20 with hwinfo to see the temps and its happening around 85deg since yesterday. Fans didn't stop and were working full speed.

crakej So I meant to post this sooner, but been busy over last few days...

I found a problem with 2501, 2602 and 2606 - when OC fails

Although safe mode will kick in, it's NOT clearing the bios setting properly. Two examples below: One shows where I had been trying for a BCLK OC of 101.8, to achieve 3800:1900. When I hit CMos CLR button it started going through the motions of resetting back to default settings. Instead of showing me the 'your machine has started in safe mode', I had to press del to get into bios - it had started booting, but I stopped it by pressing reset. On entering the bios it was showing my ram as being at 3800MTs @ 1.2v(!) - everything else had been reset so UCLCK= 1/2 FCLK which enabled it to run. It nearly booted to desktop, but obviously at that voltage I got a blue screen just before the login screen.

Second example shows that my ram voltage at 1.51v while everything else had been reset properly after trying out some settings on a 4600MTs profile.

Why isn't it re-setting everything properly? I wonder what other settings have not been reset on Safe Boot or using CMos CLR button? This could make loads of my tests invalid if it's been happening at other times without me noticing

Not just HWiNFO but any other monitoring tool.
FYI, the report has now been escalated to the right persons.

harderthanfire Sadly the AsusWMI=0 didn't fix the issue for me, so lets hope they sort it in a bios update.

If you have a tab in your "AMD CBS" menu called "SMU Options" then go to it and see if there are a couple of options named "CPPC" and "CPPC Preferred Cores" they will be set to AUTO but go ahead and set "CPPC" to Enabled and make sure all of those PPT and EDC options are set mack to their max so your cpu wont have an excuse to be dialed back. Save and Exit into the OS and download Power Settings Utility.

Next open the utility as admin and scroll down and "processor performance autonomous mode" and try the enabled vs disabled setting and see if it makes a difference just make sure to hit apply to enable the setting. You can also play with many of the processor power management settings and tweak when and how fast your processor boosts and idles as well as how fast it reacts to loads and many other things that are hidden by microsoft. Its pretty safe to do so, just hit the "Export" button and save your current configuration file and play around with the options and if you like it you can export more setups and run them whenever or if you dont like it and want to revert back to normal then just hit the "Import" button and load your initial config you saved and Apply.
Ok, onto the next thing that may help you a bit more that I found useful. Download QuickCPU Install and then run the program as Administrator and look toward the bottom of the GUI at the 3 sliders and push all 3 to the right and hit apply and check your clocks in HwInfo64.

I went from gettting a 4.35ghz all core and 4.4ghz single core to getting 4.465ghz all core for short bursts and 4.5ghz single core on my 3700x after the process stated above. Hopefully this helps.
looks interesting i will be trying it out tomorrow/later today xD, thanks so much, will post feedback!

andyliu Thanks to both @oreonutz , @Mumak , now I know I am not crazy about the fan stop working

only using hwinfo that's why I only ask about hwinfo. I dont recall using multiple monitoring software other than maybe windows task manager.
I will pay more attention to it next time so I can provide more clear detail.
And I will uncheck the EC support to see if it happens again, thanks again for the replies

Pietro Regarding RAM OC on 2nd gen(Zen+) Ryzens which bios version was the best? The newer ones for 3rd gens that I tried with my 2700X are just poor and I had downclock ram from 3560CL14 to 3466CL14 to have it stable.
