There's a limit for a negative offset, and depends on the LLC was well. Any negative offset with LLC5 will crash. LLC5 is the weakest one in the AsRock bios. LLC4 onwards is fine with any negative offset. Don't disable llc, leave on auto, or enabled, or normal, try them out. I have no konwledge about any other mobo besides the taichi x370, I can't help with that.I did use a negative offset lost single core performance as a result and in the end i reverted back to auto, I would of liked to disable llc but on this board its strangly worded such as normal, standard, low, meduim llc and so on. As for the motherboard its the Gigabyte x570 gaming x X570 GAMING X (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE Australia I wish i had paid an extra $100 for the better version thats the one most people seem to have and there are more guides for it. But its becoming more easy to cross reference overclocking information across different motherboards as I learn more. After trying to limit all background programs and setting cinebench on high in task manager I hit 7190 willing to bet the missing score is because of my security software running. As for voltages i left everything on auto expect my ram voltage. Also wanted to ask, the adia64 memory benchmark will it show better readings as a result of better ram timings or is it something that fluctuates?
Forgot to mention my temps, I dont know what to really say expect ryzen masters readings for my temps are a alot lower then hwinfo64 and speccy. I messed around with the amount of pressure I applied by hand on the water cooler screws till i saw lower temps. Basically made it hand tight without over applying pressure. At first I suspected I applied to much pressure and saw crazy spikes and that stopped after loosening the pressure i applied. I then reapplied thermal paste in a square fashion, I also keep both water cooler radiator fans at about 2100rpm. Which is surprisingly quite and I see a max of 71c underload heavy load in prime 95 compared to 89c when i applied to much pressure on the watercooler.
As you speak about security software running in the background, so then you might have even more. You are making too much fuzz and you know the cause of it. Fix it or accept it.
Aida64 bench are okay but SisSandra is better for benchs, comparisons, etc. Yes Aida will show any performance increase, or decrease you might face while messing with timings. And the results also fluctuate. I can do 5 runs and 3 of them will give me 63.9 ns and 2 will be unrealistic, 60+- ns.
Well, all I can say about your temps then is they are great. Few seconds on prime95 smal fft and the 3900x goes to 75C.
Download the ZenTimings and post a print of it. It will show the voltages/timings/etc it's a useful software, or even RM does the job. But I avoid having RM installed so I ZenTimings and HWiNFO64 to monitor sensors.
You could work your way to lower the latency. 69.7 is high.
