  1. Sorry, not sure if this belongs in General Discussion or another section, but I just have a question about RMA: Do all companies make you (the consumer) pay for any return costs for an RMA? I only ask because I've only had to RMA two things in my life, a Corsair PSU and recently a G.Skill RAM kit, and both companies didn't cover the return costs. In contrast, I've made returns to retailers, and they've always covered the return costs (shipping, restocking, recycling fees, etc). It's odd to me that the consumer has to pay more money on top of the original cost when they received a defective product.
  2. Yeah, I figured it wasn't reporting it correctly at all. And yeah, I did look at HWinfo at first, but there's no label for VDDP, so I wasn't sure which one I was supposed to look at.
  3. I've tried to Google what exactly VDDP voltage is, and I don't really understand it from the descriptions. Can someone help me understand what this voltage is? And more importantly, why is mine 0.0V?
  4. I currently have my system on "Auto" vcore as suggested by a few people early in the thread. I went thru a full day of work with no performance issues, thermal issues, or BSODs (I mean...not that graphic design on Adobe apps would ever be super heavy workloads or anything). It's reaching 1.33-1.36V during load. Should I still be concerned?
  5. I could've sworn I quoted you in my screenshot earlier today. But yeah, I misquoted the video—it said 1.35V, not 1.36V. Regardless, I think there should be an updated Zen 2 architecture overview video for people like me.
  6. Ah, good. A 3600X owner. Thanks for the relevant comment. So that's weird that you can get a higher core frequency while using a lower vcore. This boggles my mind.
  7. For sure. I never apply constant voltage to anything 24/7, but I wanted to apply a constant voltage because I erroneously thought that the voltage fluctuation was causing consistent performance.
  8. OH, BTW, I'm not running PBO, which is why the 1.36V on all-core load is concerning me.
  9. Ok, that's sorta good to hear. I find the GUI of Ryzen Master too cluttered and confusing. I'll stick to adjustments in UEFI/BIOS.
  10. I don't even know what's the proper method for voltage control at this point. People recommend Ryzen Master, but others say it's too complicated / unnecessary. Albeit, Cinebench is an extremely stressful program, and I don't think I ever hit my CPU that hard during gaming / Adobe app usage.
  11. God damn it. Now I'm worried that the auto setting is pumping too high of a vcore during all-core load!
  12. Thanks for your input (as another 3600 owner). Yeah, I'm seeing the same ~1.36V under all-core load. And like you, I'm also reading/hearing a lot of conflicting info regarding Ryzen voltages...that's why I tried to undervolt in the first place.
  13. Right. I tried to lower it from 1.36V because I saw from LTT's Ryzen overclocking video that it's the upper limit for vcore. Prior to tonight, I didn't know that it's normal for burst voltages to reach 1.4V!
  14. Haha, I actually remembered this and rewatched it when @Jurrunio mentioned clock stretching. As shown in GN's video, performance dropped significantly from the 1.0V vcore while the GHz were the reported as normal. That's why my situation confused me because my results were the inverse; i.e, slightly lowered vcore actually increased my all core frequency and raised my cinebench scores by 250 pts. And yeah, I'm trying settings on auto right now. I was just initially afraid that those vcore spikes were a little too high. Given Zen 2 being so new, I'm hearing so many conflicting information regarding all its settings.
