3950X low ghz bug

This happened since I bought it. Randomly, like 2 out of 10 boots, it starts with a low ghz for some reason. Sometimes as low as 0,5 ghz. In this example, it was stuck around 1.7 ghz. Please see video attached

As you can see, if I switch the power plan profile, it resets to normal. But this is annoying since everytime I boot I have to double check in case im missing ghzs. Sometimes it's very obvious because the computer is lagging, others like on this example, 1.75 was noticeable when I opened a 3d software. Is it possible to fix this permanently? do I need to flash the motherboard or something? Any help much appreciated.

 

Edit: forgot to mention, MOBO is Gigabyte X570 AORUS PRO. This happens with standard plans. I tried High Performance to see if this wouldn't happen as it was recommended by some people, it doesn't matter what plan you have selected, this happens randomly. To fix it you just have to go from whatever plan you are into into another for some reason this resets it.

And your motherboard is what? Somehow you missed that crucial information while also suspecting it.

Did you modify your power plans ?

Why don't you just use balanced, it won't change anything on a 3950X ?

This happens with any of the standard plans, it reset clock if you go from one plan to another.

Then that points towards bad power delivery on the board imo, CPU hasn't enough voltage

Your agesa version is 5 years out of date. Start by updating your bios before coming to conclusions.

I agree, that could be a problem. Either way, I bet the flash will fix it.

But if this was a power delivery problem why would it happen at the start at random times and gets fixed permanently by switching power plans and never happens again? (unless you restart the computer and then it may or not happen)


I will try flashing bios to latest version. Anyone can point me to the right file? I don want to flash it with the wrong bios.

It's either Windows or the board, don't think BIOS is the issue

Did you fully reinstall windows ?

I don't remember but I think I did once. It's Windows 10 Enterprise LTSE

You should always do a BIOS update if you have issues/bugs.

 

There is a reason why newer BIOS versions exist.
