  1. Ok, so I spent days trying to find the best combination of PBO and Curve optimizer, and the best I've been able to get is a 3% benchmark increase in R23, and even a minor decrease in Time Spy. I also noticed minor degradation in app load times. So, I finally came to the conclusion that this CPU/MB combination runs better on stock settings then with PBO+CO. Running it in prime 95, at stock with only DOCP enabled with a blended workload, i'm getting 4,562 MHz All Core Effective. And Single Core is hitting 4,925 MHz Effective, and Max temp hitting 81.4c, 61c average, after 1 hour P95 blended work
  2. Well, CTR was a very short lived solution. It spent over 3 hours tuning, then I ran the stability test, and it said the system was stable. And as you see above, C23 benchmarks showed very good results. I then went ahead and started Fusion 360, opened a complex project, and the PC restarted. When it came back up CTR reset itself and went to baseline defaults. At this point I can't trust CTR. I uninstalled ryzen master, deleted CTR folder. Went to BIOS, reset optimized settings and turned on DOCP. So my BIOS is back to normal now, C23 results are back to what they origina
  3. Well, I finally found time to install and run CTR v2.1. This tool is amazing. According to C23 I got a 3.3% performance increase in Single Core and 13.3% performance increase in multicore, It was also able to get my multi-core frequency to 4550 on CCX0 and 4450 on CCX1. And my temps are still good. And according to CTR, I got a Golden sample. Single-core - C23 Score 1622 with 50 MHz increase Multi-core - C23 Score 22288 with 300 MHz increase Thanks for the suggestion, it worked out perfectly. Now, how about my RAM? Can I n
  4. Ok folks, now that my machine is finally built I am ready to start doing some tweeking. I have to preface this by saying that I have not overclocked anything in the last 6 years and even then it was a Haswell-E that I overclocked. As a matter of fact, the last AMD PC I had was an athelon, which I did not overclock. So here is the build CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X MB: ASUS X570S Crosshair VIII Dark Hero GPU: EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 ULTRA .

  6. As others have mentioned, it will be mostly cosmetic, no real change in cooling performance.
  7. Karen? So you've never complained about anything in your life? Something that is trivial to one is important to the other, and vise versa. You are the one stretching this thread along by complaining about me complaining.
  8. Interesting, how you came up with a full analysis of my psyche from a single rant. Do you see me typing at my keyboard? Am I frothing at the mouth? Or am I calmly typing a rant, similar to others who have typed rants when they were upset. But you see me as an angry millennial having to wait an extra 5 minutes for my latte. Go back to psychology class. Now let's clear the air, I am most likely much older then you. I was in college when Monica was giving Bill a happy ending. I have spent the last 4 months trying to build a PC and the GPU was my starting point. Once I got my GPU I was
  9. They could have put the ram in the same box as the MB, CPU, 9 case fans, M.2 card, and the Windows DVD. That would add $0 to the shipping cost to that particular package and they could have saved money on shipping it separately.
  10. , Like I said in the beginning, this is just a rant, a rant about neweggs shipping practices. I wasn't looking for possible resolutions or explanations, and I was definitely not looking for newegg shills telling me how great newegg is. I was just looking for others with similar experiences so they can vent also. Newegg screwed up, period. Did they crew up in a devastating way? No they didn't. They didn't cause harm to anyone but they did screw up. Will I buy from them again? In the short term no, in the long term maybe. But i'm not the first nor will I be the last to have
  11. No, I wasn't charged more for shipping, I AM complaing that I have to wait longer. Do you know why? Because what they did makes absolutely no logical sense. Why would they ship $300 ram surepost if they were so worried about getting a signature for a $170 case? I'm not sure what part of my explanation is confusing. I would think that if a company needed a signature for a $170 product then they would also need one for a $300 product. Only logical. And signature requirement is not available with the surepost service. And back to what I said in my original post, the geniou
  12. It came from the same warehouse as the cpu and mb. Which came 3 day signature required 17708 ROWLAND ST CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA, US
  13. I don't mind the signature requirement, I actually think it's a good idea. My issue is why did newegg dish out for premium 3 day service for a 31lb case, but not for a 2lb ram kit at twice the value. And they both traversed the country, from California to NJ.
