Can I enable PBO with my 5700x with an Asrock 550m Pro?

Yeah I dont really know the dofferenxes between mother boards that support the same sockets so I dont know if my motherboard supports pbo.

 

If yes, can anyone give some steps on how to enable PBO for my 5700x?

Is that a B550M Pro4 or a B550M Pro SE?

On the B550M Pro4 you need to enter the Bios (spam F2 or Del (both work) on the post screen), then go to advanced, AMD Overclocking, Accept the warnings, then set PBO to "enabled".

B550M Pro SE is likely similar if it supports it (however I can't find a bios manual for that board)

I might be experienced, but I'm human and I do make mistakes. Expand for common PC building advice, a short bio and a list of my components and other tech. I edit my messages after sending them alot, please refresh before posting your reply. Please try to be clear and specific, you'll get a better answer. Please remember to mark solutions once you have the information you need.

 

Common build advice: 1) Buy the cheapest (well reviewed) motherboard that has the features you need. Paying more typically only gets you features you won’t use. 2) only get as much RAM as you need, getting more won’t (typically) make your PC faster. 3) While I recommend getting an NVMe drive, you don’t need to splurge for an expensive drive with DRam cache, DRamless drives are fine for gamers. 4) paying for looks is fine, just don’t break the bank. 5) Tower coolers are usually good enough, unless you go top tier Intel or plan on OCing. 6) OCing is a dead meme, you probably shouldn’t bother. 7) "Bottlenecks" rarely matter and "Future-proofing" is a myth. 8) AIOs don't noticably improve performance past 240mm.

I'm a PhD student working in the fields of reinforcement learning and traffic control. PCs are one of my hobbies and I've built many PCs and performed upgrades on a few laptops (for myself, friends and family). My personal computers include 3 windows (10/11) machines and a TrueNAS server (and I'm looking to move to dual booting Linux Mint on my main machine in future). While I believe I have an decent amount of experience in spec’ing, building and troubleshooting computers, keep in mind I'm not an expert or a professional and I make mistakes.

think all AM4 boards/BIOSes support PBO, except maybe some gimped OEM ones

I've never found a B-series / X-series board that didn't (most of my AM4 experience is B450 onwards) - but an Asrock B550 is a fairly modern board, so it should be fine, but as per the previous reply, it might need to be enabled in BIOS first.

 

How much it'll boost depends on a LOT of other things (VRM/cooling), but Ryzen Master is pretty good at giving you a good idea where that sweet spot is.

My workstation/gamer: Ryzen9 5900X@5Ghz, AC Freezer2 280mm AIO, ASUS TUF X570PRO, RTX3080Ti FE, 32Gb TridentZ DDR4-3600C14, M.2 1Tb WDSN850, M.2 1Tb WDSN550, 2x 8Tb WD80EFAX, Corsair HX850, LianLi O11 Air Mini + 3x NF-A14's, Gigabyte M27Q (27"/1440P/170Hz), Asus PA248 (24"/1200P/60Hz), Dell WFP2408 (24"/1200P/60Hz), G815 kbd, G502 mouse, Sony WH-H910N, ModMic Wireless.
