Ryzen 5600X lacking boost speed at 100% load

 Share

Hi all

 

I have a Ryzen 5600X, and I have noticed, when I encode video using handbrake or use it for other tasks that pin it to 100% (Cinebench has the same effect), the CPU downclocks to everything from 4,2 GHz to 4,0 GHz. (temps are at 62c)

When I play games it stays at 4,6 GHz all core no problem.

I did however while playing a game yesterday, have a Steam download going in the background, and I did have the CPU close to 100% (like 90%, 95%), where it did stay at 4,6 GHz, temps at 70'ish C

 

Can I get it to 4,6 GHz when encoding video?

I have never done an overclock in my life, and I don't know if that is what I need for this. Or just a tweaked setting somewhere.

 

My setup is as follows:

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AX

Corsair Hydro H100i RGB PRO XT (AIO cooler)

2x16 GB 3600 MHz, CL18

 

edit. Attached a few screenshot from HWinfo, while video encoding. Just in case it helps you 😊

Could you show us what voltages it uses when running at 4.6ghz?

 

Tbh im not really sure anymore on what id reccomend as being an absolute max safe voltage cause most xoc results ive found stick around 1.75v but then theres some odd balls that go to 1.8v, even nearing 1.9v

 

Just assume somewhere around 1.5v is an absolute max safe volt and the reccomended safe volt is 1.45v

These are the numbers during a game of Siege.

The average is collected over 30 min.

Yeah, sure, but not at 100% usage,  do you see how that's different?

I see the difference, question, does it need to be?

I should have the cooling to get the frequency higher.

 

My old Ryzen 3600 did stay at 4,1 GHz during full load. (just 0,1 GHz off the boost speed)

 

I know the 5000 series is not the 3000 series.

 

But that still leaves my question, can I get the frequency up in situations of full load?

My cooling should be plenty capable of handling it.
