    1USMUS, who you know from DRAM Calculator for Ryzen and our articles here on Guru3D, has been working hard on a new and awesome project. CTR is short for ClockTuner for Ryzen, a tool that can increase the performance of ZEN2 processors without increasing power consumption.

    Damn this looks very promising!
    I am more and more tempted to jump AMD bandwagon, but...need to wait for new Zen iteration, this, plus this software may, may be a tick that finally push me to switch.

    As if consumption wasn't good enough already, impressive there's still a margin to improve upon!

    I wonder is he doing this all this alone or is he somehow cooperating with AMD? If not they definitely should.
    However i dont have any good experience with DRAM Calculator. Tested it with 3 PCs (1700X, 2600X, 3900X) and 0.5-2 years old RAM and got not one of them stable even with the "safe" settings.

    wwwooo! this sounds very promising. I like the idea of getting every last drop out of the cpu while keeping power and heat at bay.

    I will take this with a pinch of Salt, am all for the development of extra options but am uncomfortable with its low level access, I must confess I also installed the power profile and found it locked my CPU to a low clock speed for some odd reason when I removed it I got normal behaviour back

    He does soo much for us that have AMD, and its always top software.
    Thanks, @1usmus

    That sounds awesome, thanks 1usmus. Can't wait to use this. So begins the hype. :)

    This sounds great but sadly it seems that it won't work for those of us who use virtualization features in Windows as that prevents Ryzen Master from working, which is a dependecy for CTR if I'm not mistaken. That's hardly 1usmus's fault though.

    Day 1 Download, I have 2 Chiplets so I can take advantage of this software

    I want this but I still want my single core boost.

    I really wish AMD would work with him to make both happen.

    just to make sure since this will not consume more power so no degrading to the silicon life time ?

    Increasing performance by 7% wile reducing power consumption by 9.5% is allot!
    How much can you actually push it keeping voltage, tdp and consumption stock?

    @Hilbert Hagedoorn will we see an article with new benchmarks?
    I suspect the difference between AMD and Intel will be negligible.

    I don't know if anybody else has seen it on this thread, but I just came from the LTT video about the program, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it myself... I am running a 3900X and would love to lower my temperatures even just a couple of degrees on the stock cooler, until I can upgrade to a better cooler... Now I don't know if a guy can only do that, or if they have to overclock it too, but it is something I would like to do... Eventually, when I get a better cooler to put on it, I hope to be able to overclock it a bit too and still get stable maybe 70° Celsius temps if that's even possible, because right now I'm running on the high end probably 80° Celsius1 under heavy load... I just built the computer within the last month or so so it's still a work in progress because I have stuff still arriving by mail for help in installing extra fans and stuff... Extra rubber fan grommets and whatnot so hopefully that will help the temperatures some, although the room without air conditioning becomes a sauna...

    Go to your BIOS and set a negative CPU voltage offset. Start with -0.05 and test Cinebench. You may lose a few points but temperatures should decrease. If you want to explore more, try -0.1.
    I have my Ryzen 2600 with -0.1 and rocks. Hope this software is updated for Zen later, or maybe sometime in the future when I update from my 2600 I can use it.
    Awesome software.
