    Coil whine from Motherboard?

    It's loud, but I even tried furmark and I didn't hear any coil whine.

    Coil whine from Motherboard?

    I saw that thread before asking and it seemed like it had to do with a different problem. They were talking about loads in games and how high framerates would give them coil whine. However, I tried doing exactly what the OP in that thread was doing and I did not hear the same coil whine. In games with high framerates, this just would not happen, but in benchmarks like Cinebench R15 or when I'm rendering in Blender, the coil whine happens. But since it seems unfixable unless I take a chance and maybe an RMA will fix it, I guess I can't do anything. Thanks.
  3. While running intense loads on my system (specifically CPU intensive ones), I hear a loud coil whine-like noise coming from my motherboard. I made sure that it wasn't my GPU because during GPU stress tests it doesn't happen, and I made sure that my power supply doesn't make that noise by isolating the power supply from the case. Is there anything that I can do to fix it or is there something wrong and I need to RMA?

  4. It seems like it, and I'm not gonna try and do individual core overclocks. But It seems like the VCORE voltage is basically EDC because ever since I increased it in the bios, the EDC % in Ryzen Master goes over 100%. So I think that's the best I'm gonna get. I think that's as far as I'm gonna go with my CPU though. Thank you for all the help!
  5. I've been trying overclocking for the past hour actually and I found a couple interesting things. I haven't found any of the settings you mentioned (PPT, TDC, and EDC), but when I only increased the voltage, performance increased without needing to increase my frequency. 1.35V on VCORE is what got me the best advantage. However, when I changed the multiplier to reach 4.2Ghz on the same voltage, my computer would crash with no BSOD. I even tried bumping the voltage further and I got the same results. Any idea what is happening?
  6. I checked every menu in my bios and nothing else mentioned XFR or PBO. This is all there was to the PBO screen.
  7. Yes, I just go into XFR Enhancement and it's there. Here's the rest of AMD CBS if it helps.
  8. Yeah I'm on the latest for both. So I just have a power bottleneck from my motherboard?
  9. My PPT TDC and EDC only go up to 128, 80, and 125 in Ryzen Master respectively
  10. It's very basic, I only have options for Auto, Enabled, or Disabled. By default Auto is on but I tried disabled just now to make sure that it didn't have PBO on and I didn't notice. However, even that didn't lower my scores.
  11. Thank you for the advice on the power plan, but I tried looking into why cooling could be a problem. I turned all of my fans to 100% and tried to check if there would at least be a tiny difference. However, even then, my scores did not change and my processor only got up to 70C. Is that not low enough?
  12. I've tried enabling PBO in my motherboard BIOS and in Ryzen Master and no matter what I do, performance numbers barely change. Even with the AMD Ryzen power plan enabled, very little difference is made. Is there something I'm doing wrong or?

  13. I use a leaf blower, but remember to remove the fans to clean them manually with a cloth or something. If you run it with the fans in it, you run the risk of wearing out the bearings on the fans.

    Mint or Ubuntu?

    Mint seems the easiest to use for me because it requires the least to set up imo

    Cable Management

    I didn't know you were looking to improve the look because of your case and I can't offer help since I have only worked with fully closed cases where cable management doesn't really matter. I also was just commenting on how the cables won't effect the airflow that much.
