Since a ton of people have complained about voltages, heat, etc. I've decided to publish the Windows power plan I use on my 3900X. This plan causes the CPU to downclock to 2.2 GHz and 0.95V or even lower (on my system it can sometimes hit a low of 0.2V). Doing light tasks like browsing the internet, etc. won't cause the spike in clocks and resulting increase in power/temperatures. The fans on my machine actually stay at very low speeds the majority of the time. There also does not appear to be any performance decrease.

I am creating this topic for discussion. The download link on the page will be added shortly after I create this thread, I need to create this topic first so I can include the link to it in the readme. If you decide to share this link, please share the link to the page rather than the download so that users can download the latest updates if the plan is updated. Also I may move the files around at some point which would result in an http 404.

If the link below does not work for you, please try CTRL + F5 in your browser. DNS is still refreshing since this domain was originally managed elsewhere, so it may take up to 48 hours. If accessibility continues to be an issue please post here.

Please read the readme for installation instructions, I attempted to post them here, but the post was blocked by some type of anti-spam software.

EDIT: The download link is live.

To give you an idea of how well this works, HWINFO has been open for 27 minutes. The average CPU Temp is 37C. Average SVI2 TFN voltage is 0.96V (CPU VID was 0.2V for minimum). Average clock speeds are 2.3-2.4 GHz (average effective clock is 40.8 MHz), Average fan speed is 692 RPM.

Activities have included:

1) Browsing the internet in multiple tabs.
2) Watching a Youtube video.
3) Zipping up files
4) Uploading those files via FileZilla

The MAX clockspeed while performing these activities was 2,400 MHz. I also started steam, it jumped to 3.2 GHz for about 2 seconds after Steam started up, then dropped back to 2.2 GHz. Gaming I averaged 4.25-4.45 GHz with peaks of around 4.6 GHz.

May I ask an obvious question? (Perhaps I missed it) ------ As you know, downloading "files" from strangers on the internet is really not a good idea. Especially when it comes to some magic formula.

HOWEVER** - my gut is telling me you are sincere in your efforts to help / not to hurt. With that said, the question: Why not share your settings and let us match them and see what's up?

Given that it's just a generic power config file, there isn't much danger in installing it. It's not executable, however I will try and dump the settings tomorrow. I've been tweaking things locally (especially the boost thresholds), so I'll have to export my current one and import the one I have posted, then I will share it.

so if i compare what i use vs this, mostly the same thing with more power restriction on wireless and pcie and a minimum power state of 0, i will stick with what i currently use

Nah....... don't do that. I see the file now. It's a readme.txt file and a .pow file. (essentially a config file) - and you're right, totally non nefarious.

It's basically just the settings you use , exported to a config file > .pow file. Harmless. I understand now. No biggie.

Question? Would you suggest any changes for a 3700x?

The questions are:
- is the same setup working for other Ryzen too? Like 3600x?
- what are the differences with other popular power plans like the Usmus, etc
