CPU overheating, GPU is not. How to use separate folding power?

So, if I put "Folding Power" to "Medium", my CPU, a Ryzen 2700X, quickly approaches 90C, which isn't healthy. Dropping the power to "Light" keeps it at a steady 74C

 

However, "Light" folding power means the GPU won't be folding. Meanwhile, the GPU, a Vega64, at Medium, stays at a nice 64C.

 

It seems I can't provide separate Folding Power? One for GPU and one for CPU?

 

Anyone know how I can make this happen?

remove the manual oc and put precision boost overdrive on, on amd ryzen master. it will down clock when the cpu is getting too hot.

QUOTE ME  FOR ANSWER.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

You can open the advanced control panel from the taskbar, right click on the icon and select advanced control. There you can set if you want to fold on the cpu and or gpu and how many cpu cores you want to assign. 

 

More important than that however is to figure out why your temps are that high. Are you using the stock heatsink? What case do you have and where are the fans located?

Another thing you can do is go into advanced control > configure > slots tab > edit the cpu folding slot > change the number of cpu threads the slot should use. In a nutshell, you can set however many threads you want it to do while folding (lower number means less CPU usage).

No manual OC is in place. Everything is on "Auto".

That themp is the one reported by Speccy. Ryzen Master is consistently putting it 10C lower though. Heatsink is a beQuitev4. Don't remember case name, but I can assure you there are fans back and front and the airflow is working fine.

 

I'm in the advanced control but I'm not finding that stuff about amount of cpu cores anywhere. FaH version 7.5.1, which appears to be the most recent on the website.

Dear god you can doubleclick that? Christ, the edit button is so small.

 

Alright, I think that did it, thanks.

I had the same problem so I disabled XFR on my 2700X and added a voltage offset of -0.05V.  The temps now hover around 47C on full folding.  I'm using CPU for Rosetta, and GPU for F@H.  I set the GPU powerlimit to 60% as well to keep the folding power efficient.  The system now pulls 260-300W from the wall compared to 400-450W when everything was on OC and full blast.

Cool, quiet, and efficient 😀

so there's no way to place the core workload to 2 core and the gpu full power without having to modify bios settings or something else?

Yes, its already been explained twice above.

Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Ubiquiti nanoHD (~700Mbit peak throughput)
ISP: Zen Unlimited Fibre 2 (66Mbit) + Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra. (56Mbit)
