    hey guys just wanted to update you on my usage of CTR 2.1 RC5
    amd 5950x
    asus x570 crosshair VIII dark hero
    corsair dominator ddr4-3600 18-19-19-39 CR1

    BIOS uses DEFAULT settings except I activated the XMP memory thing (changing settings only made things worse for me)

    my usual problems with CRT 2.1 RC5
    1) monitor/videocard loses video signal (rtx 3090)
    2) computer instantly reboots
    3) cinebench suddenly slows down and seems to go to a weird mono/multi core hybrid mode with 1.4V leading to very high temps

    1) and 2) happened very often until I pushed cpu voltage up by an incredible.....25mV o_O
    stability or rebooting 10x per day is that sensible
    from my aida64 logging I see that the voltages I set up in CTR aren't really followed (probably because of my bios default settings but LLC only gave me reboots) so bumping them a notch seems to help not crashing
    3) might be related or not at all

    here are my current GAMING settings, definitely not recommended for video encoding, rendering etc...(you want lower clocks and voltages for more stability and lower temps at high cpu usage)
    voltages and frequencies have been changed from whatever diagnostics or auto-calculate gave me to whatever looked more "logical" to me (going way up in some places)
    PX
    4975 4900 4825
    1400 1375 1350
    P2
    1325 25 (4->11 cores usage so most games will trigger this)
    4750
    4650
    P1
    1225 75 (12->16 cores rarely active outside of benchmarking/workloads)
    4500
    4400
    MIX

    I just played too many hours of last epoch early access with these like 3-4hrs straight when before the 25mV bump, even with lower clocks and a wider delta between CCX I could not play 30min without the PC rebooting

    if like me you never could run a complete "tuner" run without crashing you can do this
    1) quit all the un-necessary background apps you have running, open the windows, max cooling fans anything to have your computer run colder try a "diagnostics" if you can't even run that, your computer isn't stable in the 1st place probably because of bios and/or memory settings, forget running memoy at more than 3600/1800 at least at this stage and if you have any doubt let it run at stock bios 2133Mhz or whatever, memory is the no1 reason for instability on both Intel and AMD if you mess up cpu clocks or voltages it will seem to work for a while before crashing but if you're too confident with memory settings you will reboot non-stop or run into visual/program bugs (without memory control and correction there will be too many errors
    2) or if you cannot run diagnostics, but you should really be able to
    forget tuner and diagnostics and just go to the profiles pages and calculate them one by one, I don't think the order matters but I would do P1->P2->PX

    update after working for one day of benchmarking, the next morning one of my game started to crash (last epoch early access which is hardcore heavy on cpu and gpu for some reason)...and then windows...and then everything
    after trying different settings it comes down to the PX profile, disabling it made the crashes disappear, I reduced each PX frequency by 50Mhz we'll see

    if you hoped for a plug and play 100% working gg easy app this ain't it..yet
    but it does what AMD should have done with ryzen master or PBO, so still great work for me :)
    and it fixes that damn idiotic 1.4v 5ghz idle that's problematic since at least 3000 series

    If I click "load" on the P2, it loads the P1 diagnose results in the P2 field, and also the PX values are empty, what should you insert?
    Also I can't find any word about what to insert in CX1 and CX2, there isn't any mention of differences in the diagnose...

    i mostly use my system for gaming, and these day i mostly play warzone, so far i have a p1 profile set at 1275 4750 for first ccx and 4600 for ccx2, p2 profile set 4825 at 1350 for ccx 1 and 4675 for ccx2. i never use the px profile, either p1 or p2 is stable i dont hit 60 degrees with p1 in warzone and about 65 for p2 in warzone, when i stop gaming i just use amd regular profile, im running a 5900x not a 5950x

    ps you really need to work on those ram timings, ill get you better gaming performance for sure

    Good morning guys,
    I apologize in advance if my question is trivial, but I have a language problem and cannot translate well.
    I can't understand from the guide if having a Zen3 (5800X) with the CTR 2.1 R5 version, I just need to do diagnostics and apply the profiles or if I also have to do Tune for P1 and P2 as in the old version.
    Thank you

    Since some days ago, when windows updated itself, ryzen ctr is not workin anymore. It reverts to different values, and disables profile autoload and CTR hybrid OC. Then, at windows startup, it opens the reverted app, instead of applying the previously configured settings.

    Hi guys, a noob here

    I've tried to use ClockTuner a few times, and eventhough I learned about what could go wrong, I'm still having reboots when I tune with ClockTuner to do Undervolt. The problem I think is that my motherboard is a b450 by gigabyte, and the thing is I don't have any LLC option (I searched and I found my motherboard it's limited and doesn't have it). Anyone can help me? Or at least, anyone with the same issue with b450? Thank you
