  1. Yes, that is what it does, from what I've read. But I thought it never goes beyond AMD official boost speeds, it's kinda common sense to me. A 3800 MHz CPU with a maximum boost of 4700 MHz - this is on AMD page. And PBO seems to go over that speed with 150 MHz. It might be an ASUS motherboard feature? To go over if the temps are good and there is power?
  2. Given my current jump to AMD I will ask a few questions from time to time so bear with me. I have two questions related to cores speed. First one: compared to my previous CPU, i7 7700K, this Ryzen 7 5800x seems to stay as high as 3200 MHz, never lower. i7 downclocked its cores to 800 MHz when in idle. I'm using the same Balanced Power Plan I used before. It's a normal behaviour? Second one: I didn't touch overclocking at all. Just the PBO and everything it's on Auto, I didn't tinker with settings because first of all, I don't think OC will do much for this powerful enough processor
  3. I have read it. But I've searched a little and it seems that AMD power plans are no better than default, but even worse that default is some cases. I'm not claiming that I know this, I said I just jumped into AMD boat after almost 14 years of Intel. I've seen a few videos on Youtube and there was no gain or even a negative result when using AMD. Like this one here (I hope it's ok to post Yt links) Is it correct or not?
  4. Thank you for your answers, I uninstalled AI Suit and installed Ryzen Master but no AMD plans. Just old plain Balanced, High Performance and Power Saving. And yes, I installed all AMD drivers directly from AMD, ASUS version being older. And beside sound drivers I consider always the AMD or Intel ones, not the motherboard's manufacturer drivers.
  5. I just managed to finish my AMD build - Ryzen 7 5800x on ASUS ROG Strix X570-F. I activated all "automated" enhancements in BIOS and I don't want to go further with overclocking. Is this app necessary? It claims to "optimize" a lot of settings including TPU, EPU, Digi+ VRM and Fans. To me it seems like overclocking over the PBO settings and I don't want to do that, at least for the moment. Also, I can't see the AMD Power Plans even if the drivers are successfully installed. How can I solve this?
  6. I don't want to overclock it, I believe it's enough with the normal AMD boost. I already have these Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 32GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16 (CMK32GX4M2B3200C16) bought from PCGarage last year. I don't know exactly what type of memory has - I guess Micron - but they weren't the cheapest nor the most expensive. They're not very aggressive either, at CL16. The QVL lists only CMK32GX4M2Z3200C16 variant as 16GB x 2 kit. What's odd, searching for QVL memory (eMag, PCGarage, Vexio) I realized that 32 GB kits at 3600 are kinda hard to find. Even if they are the most expensive G.Ski
  7. Thank you. I received a lot of advices regarding AMD and its issue with memories. Honestly, I used only Intel for my builds since Core 2 Duo so Ryzen is new to me entirely. Someone said it can be very unstable if I'm using untested memories, someone else taht it can void the ASUS warranty (!) and such other things.
  8. Hi I just bought a Ryzen 7 5800x and an ASUS ROG Strix X570-F. The thing is I'd wish to use, at least for a while - maximum 2-3 months - my current memory sticks but they aren't in the QVL list. I have Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16) CL16 at 3200 MHz. Can I use them until I'll buy a proper QVL memory? Thanks
