Ryzen 7 2700 - vcore normal?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi.

Have a Ryzen 7 2700 (non-x) on a Gigabyte B450 Elite motherboard. Not presently overclocked, running on a balanced powerplan in Windows.

I'm just wondering about the core voltage which doesn't seem to drop the much when it is sitting in idle. It goes as low as 0,780 but only shortly and mostly stays in the 1,2-1,3ish range and I think that's a lot. To be honest, I'm mostly concerned about the powerbill.

Could we not agree that it should stay below 1v when idle?

There are no background processes runnning or anything else that could warrant the, in my opinion, high voltage. The way to describe it is, very nervous in fact. Core clock flucturates wildly between 1,5-4 GHz literally every second. It's like it doesn't want to slow down to catch a breath. I know it is supposed to move up and down quickly, but i would not expect it to do so violently.

Setting the power plan to save power will get the results i'd expect, but then it clocks itself solidly at 1,5 GHz and won't really boost when loaded, so it's not really a solution for me either.

Should probably attempt to reset BIOS in the near future. Oh, and I'm measuring vCore in CPU-z. I've heard monitoring software artificially probes the cores, making them think there's an actual load on the chip.

If you guys have a similar setup could you give me your readings?

Same deal in Ryzen Master, did not go below 1,025 after a minute of idling.

I'm on a 2700 as well. 1.3V is fine 1.4 is the max AMD recommends for an overclock. 

the power usage is minimal

So you don't see cores park/sleep?

Well it looks like this - some go down to 1,7 while others ramp up a little more, getting a little more green. They never get inactive and they flucturate every second, ramping up to 3,8-4 ish Ghz.

Just reverted to default BIOS settings as well for good measure.

I'm merely trying to determine if it's normal for the chip to be so 'busy' when doing nothing. Could you tell me what your chip is doing when not doing anything?

Also good to know 1,4 is the max as I might have pushed it a little over that trying to break 4,1. Hehe.

I am indeed. As well as the latest version on Windows. GPU drivers as well. I take high pride in that.

Next step will probably be a Windows install. I also lack the "Ryzen Balanced Power Plan" in the Windows options.

1.4V run 24/7 will be harmful for the cheap and will degrade faster. Recommend to try and stay around 1.35V (this all only counts if you are manually OC’ing). 
 

if the chip is not OC’d and just running stock (recommend you do activate xmp profile for ram) I wouldn’t worry much. Chips will do their things; make sure temps are in check

Yeah. I’m just running Stock at the moment. There’s not really anything that I am currently playing that tends to brother the CPU that much. 
 

Only thing I really OC for is BeamNG, which even with an all core of 4 GHz still don’t run properly if you load multiple cars

Could my issue have something to do with HPET being disabled?

Issue seems to be rooted with iCue. I've now uninstalled it and CPU rolls down to .780 v right away.

RAM can be controlled with Gigabyte software but keyboard is now stuck in the awful RGB wave. I want a solid white...

I had this issue when i upgraded from a 1600x to a 3600x, meant the chipset drivers didn't install properly even though it would appear so.

 

The only fix i could muster after multiple uninstalls/cleans was a fresh windows install. Worked perfect afterwards.

Beam NGDrive should be normal when spawn too many vehicles and some vehicles just dont work properly either.

My kid loves this game.

Runs good on Ryzen 1400 with a GTX 980. 

Im pretty certain your hardware is fine, its just the way the game is.
