Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


so i built a new AMD system and for some reason im not getting a good turbo boost. i did add a aio because i thought that maybe i was running too hot but I'm still not getting full performance. is there anything i might be able to do?


build out list is as follows




cpu - AMD ryzen 5 3600  

Cpu cooler - Corsair h100i rgb platinum 240 mm aio                                               
mobo - ASUS ROG B450-f gaming                      
memory -  CORSAIR Vengeance 32 gig (4x8gig)  DDR4 @3000mHz
psu - CORSAIR CX-M series CX600M                   
hdd - 256 gig 2.5 in SATA SSD,  6tb 3.5inch HDD, 2,000GB 3.5 in sshd                                           
case - Corsair Carbide Series 300R                       
fans - Corsair  x5              

Graphics- -Gtx 1070 founders edition


RGB strips have been added and are plugged into the RGB headers on mobo


its my first true build out and used ryzen master to see if i could tinker with the overclocking settings a bit but I'm not familiar with it so i didnt want to take it too far and just reverted back to stock just to make sure i didn't goof anything up. any pointers would be real nice right now.

just note, you're very unlikely to see the max boost AMD marketed

I would just enable PBO and call it a day personally. Ryzen has pretty limited room to overclock on most of their CPUs.
