How to stop Ryzen 3900X from downclocking when idle (manual oc)?

Hey,

 

I've been trying to stop my 3900x from downcloking for a while now and whatever I do it keeps backing down when idle. It's on a all-core oc at 4.3Ghz/ 1.3v but I want all the cores to always stay at 4.3 no matter what. What setting disables that? I tried global c- state to Disabled but no change. (mobo is MSI X570 TOMAHAWK)

What are you using to check your speeds?  If it's Ryzen Master then I don't think that shows the multiplier the cores are running at but instead their effective speeds.  

 

And disabling c-states should do it and you can probably use Windows power plan too by setting Minimum Processor State to 100%.

I was using RyzenMaster ye, I switched to HWinfo64 and it's showing 43x all core as seen here so I'm guessing either C-states did the trick or I was confused in the very first place when monitoring with ryzenmaster and simply changing windows power plan to high performance was already at 43x I just couldn't see it. hmmm. Ok I'll go back the steps of re-enabling it and see what's what :D Thanks to both of you guys anyway! @svmlegacy

Why do you need your CPU to run at 4.3GHz, even when idle?

Well I didn't find a way to run the cores at exactly 4.3/4 ONLY when playing and the downclock after. cuz if left auto even on high performance power plan clocks go all over the place while gaming and in a manual overclock at least I am sure it's always staying exactly that.

Should let your CPU downclock when idle, no need to run it at 4.3GHz all the time. Use CPU-Z and Cinebench to see if your CPU is reaching the OC you want when it's at full load. Yes, then your all set.

It is reaching the overclock while at full 24threads load but while in CS:GO some of the cores vary constantly and I don't want any variations in frequency while gaming. If I find a way to keep all cores completely locked while gaming and then downclock when idle sure. I prefer fully constant clocks over never downclocking. I was doing it on my 7900X before by simply changing from high performance to balanced power mode when finished playing but it doesn't seem to be affecting the 3900X for some reason.
