What is EDC and why is it at 100%?

Go to solution Solved by ShrimpBrime,

EDC is electrical design current - of the board. 

It's just saying you're 99% of 90A with a 180A max. 

More of an indicator than a warning.

I' noticed edc is 100%. What is it and should I be worried about that when I start overclocking.

Specs

Ryzen 2700 (hyper 212)

Power Supply: OCZ zt 650w bronze(Old and going to replace before I start overclocking)

Motherboard: Msi x470 Gaming Plus with latest bios

Power setting: Ryzen Balanced

change your power plan. its probably on the ryzen setting, try windows balanced, or windows high performance. stands for electrical design current. its pretty much how many amps your pc is allowing the cpu.

So its fine if its 100% all the time? Shouldnt it be fluctuating if its how much the vrm can handle?

you should be able to up the limit under "control mode" in ryzen master. if its adjusting accordingly with the load, i wouldn't worry about it.
