  1. Well here I am again it seems. My matx mobo wasnt cutting it so I had to get an atx board with better VRMs for my new Ryzen 2700. Which also meant I had to get a bigger case and a cooler to be safe. No more 3.4ghz bottleneck I'm now running at 3.9ghz at 1.33v. I'm very new to overclocking and it's too hot where I live to push the cpu any further on this cooler Ryzen 2700 MSI B450 Tomahawk 16gb Corsair 2666 DDR4 Galax GTX1080 Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic From this: To this: Edit: I forgot to mention that my new cooler doesnt fit in thi

    Some pictures of my current setup.
  3. Been a while since I last posted and I've done some upgrades to my setup so here it is: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700 8 core 16 thread "only running @3.4ghz because of my motherboard vrm I think, looking into an upgrade"GPU: Galax EXOC Sniper White GTX1080 8GBRAM: 16GB DDR4 2666mhz Corsair Vengence white LEDMOBO: MSI B350M Mortar Arctic AM4 White SSD: WD 240GB M.2SSD: 120GB KingstonSSD: 240GB KingstonHDD: Segate Baraccuda 1TB 7200RPMHDD: Hisense 1TB 5400 RPMCASE: InWin 301 MicroATX casePSU: Thermaltake Smart 550w 80+ bronze Oculus rift and a Philips 32inch 1080p monitor.

  4. To run both cards at the same time and to account for overclocking the cards and the cpu "just in case" around 580w. I'd check the psu tier list and find something decent quality. I'd say 650 would be the recommended, maybe a 700 or 750 would be worth considering if you want the extra headroom for something later or just to keep it a bit cooler n quieter.
  5. I tried a lazy overclock with 1.35v and 3.7 because I figured it would have to work and would tell me if the cpu really can't go above 3.4 on this motherboard. It worked fine but the temps were too high for the stock cooler. although without knowing what the VRM temps are I'm a little worried about burning out whatever the EDC is by going above 3.4. I'm going to look into a higher end B450 motherboard and maybe a BeQuiet Darkrock 4 pro when I can afford it. I'm not sure I really need X470.
  6. Okay, I'll give it a shot tomorrow when I get up, thanks.
  7. The last bios update I did was about a month ago. My vcore is on auto and everything else is also set to auto.
  8. I'm messing with the voltage in Ryzen master now and I have it at 3.5 but I can no longer see the EDC which makes me worry it will burn out or something?
  9. I checked and it had set itself to high performance with 100% min. I changed it back to 20% and ran the test again and am still getting all cores sitting at 3.4 during the single core test.
  10. If I run cinabench single core test all the cores stay at 3.4 and vary rarely max out at 3.5. but 99% of the time they are all at 3.4. I thought the other cores would slow down so one of them could use the extra power but that doesn't seem to be happening. Edit: I'm not sure I could overclock it beyound 3.4 anyway because I think the motherboards VRM might be limiting it. but I haven't tried yet.
  11. Hmm, well I guess I'll just hold off on a new board for now as long as the 3.4ghz doesn't effect my games and stuff. Thanks for trying.
  12. I can't because first gen Ryzen boards don't support PBO only second gen ones do. The CPU supports it but the motherboard doesn't.
  13. I've got it set to 20% min power state on the Ryzen balanced power plan at the moment. Precision boost overdrive is available on this processor but that's only on gen 2 boards mine is only a B350 board. So I'm not able to increase the EDC there unfortunately.
  14. So I just upgraded from a Ryzen 1600 to a 2700 and my cpu is capped at 3.4ghz. I have an MSI B350M Mortar Arctic motherboard and Ryzen master says my EDC is 100% of 90A out of 168A. Why am I only able to get 90 out of the 168? Do I need a new motherboard or is there something I'm doing wrong. I don't really care about overclocking but I would the auto boost to have more headroom. If I disable 2 cores my cpu jumps to 3.725ghz. If I do need a new motherboard are there any cheapish recommendations as I don't really have a crazy amount to spend and my case is m-atx so an atx board would require a
