    ClockTuner for Ryzen (CTR) - and introduction guide and download

    Who doesn't like free extra performance from that ZEN2 based proc of yours? We have an exciting day here at Guru3D.com, 1USMUS is ready with his new applications, CTR aka ClockTuner for Ryzen. You can grab the software and try it out, however, we strongly advise you to read our guide first, to comprehend what is needed to get that extra free performance out of your ZEN2 based processor.

    Read the article here.
    You can download the application here.

    I have a question I am using an MSI 570 Gaming Plus board and set the LLC to mode 3 but I am still reciving a warning during the diagnostic that "There is a need to reduce the LLC"

    Thanks

    same here it wont run a second time but it didnt crash,
    i applied it and restarted.
    i ran benchmark after and didnt see any gains maybe i did something wrong
    not overclocking manually i left the 2 options do their thing in bios.

    It's telling my my 3700x is a platinum sample and to set it to 6500 odd! :D

    Nope - each "CO" is a core - CCX is a group of cores.

    I wouldn't dare to use BETA software of this kind. I'll let it mature and after I see some numbers and safety confirmations from reliable testers I will give it a try.
    But that's just me.
    For me -0.0875V offset on vcore for 3900X works like a charm on a B450 Tomahawk. Boost up to 4.6Ghz. The only thing I would like to be able to do is to set the all-core frenquency independently from the single core boost. In other words, something similar to Intel HPDC CPUs had, set the frequency for different usage scenarios, with additional ability to set the max vcore for each of them. I'd run it at 4.2Ghz all core and 4.6 single core. Best of both worlds.

    On my system I have gone from benchmark of 3259 to 3703- 13.6% increase.
    Just using default settings for my Ryzen 3600

    Well, nice software, completely useless.

    Why so harsh?

    Well, it puts the CPU in "Manual Overclocking" mode, meaning single threaded gets cut down to whatever is the "maximum" for all-threads.

    My somewhat bad 3700X which in single threaded reaches 4350 with occasional blips to 4400 gets forcibly limited to 4125 by the manual settings.
    Yes, it can run 4100+4125 when using all 8 cores, but that use case for me is once in a blue moon.

    Cinebench ^UP
    Other softwre vDOWN

    ----
    So, NO THANK YOU.
    Back to PBO.
    Same here, seems it's working poorly with 3700X.

    I fixed my LLC issue by moving to [MODE 4]

    Try PBO combined with (-)offset vcore and give it a try with 0.05V, then lower even more, step by step. I would't go lower than -0.100V as it sacrifices max boost because the voltage is too low. In my case it worked best with -0.0875V, as -0.1V was giving 4.55GHz boost. I suppose -0.05V to -0.0625V will work best for you.
    if you have already tried this - just ignore my post.

    I did, my CPU doesn't like -offset, it just crashes.
    It's a dud, basically, but a dud that works at default settings (or with PBO, but not making much difference or at all)

    But in any case, Default/PBO that allows 1-2 threads to work at (almost) the box frequency (4.4) is better than 0.05 more than default at all cores, while losing 0.3 at single threaded.
    The stuff I do is mostly single/low threaded.

    ----
    The CPU was a major upgrade compared to the old 4-core/4-thread (i5) which I had, so no complaints, even if I know I got a dud from the perspective of overclocking.
    Even better, it was 100% free, as a gift from my employer ^.^, so free dud better than no CPU at all :p

    Will upgrade to Zen3 anyway in a few months.

    My system always reboots in #step2 after the first Cinebench run. :s
