    After spending hours (like, 8 hours) tweaking settings and running endless CTR runs, comparing manual to CTR profiles, the highest manual OC CB20 score I got was 3757 (4.2ghz @ 1.3v, LLC3) vs 3711 (CTR 4.125ghz @ 1.275v, LLC6).

    If anything, CTR showed me that I was leaving some performance on the table (previous manual OC was 3705) and could lower my voltage a bit.

    Also, I now know that my 3600 is kinda meh compared to other people's.

    If you aren't manually OC and comfortable with tweaking settings, my CB score with simply telling Ryzen Master to automatically OC was 3586, and CTR got to 3711(LLC6, 3699 at LLC3). That's a nearly 3.5% increase with no technical knowledge required beyond googling where your LLC setting is.

    I'll definitely be running it on friends' systems that don't OC, and I look forward to updates.

    Phew, nearly bricked my computer in the most stupid way. So I look at the requirements and turns out I need to update the BIOS. I get the new BIOS, prepare a USB stick and just as I restart the computer to flash, power runs out. Now I'm panicked to flash, what if it runs out again in the middle of it? Encourage me please :))

    Wait until power appears to be stable.
    If its a regular problem get an UPS.

    Depends what kind of mobo you have. Many have a port on them that say something like BIOS flashback. MSI, for example, just has you stick the BIOS file you want to use (even the one you're updating to) on a FAT32 usb stick, rename it to MSI.ROM, insert the usb into that particular port, then hit the flashback button. Other manufacturers have similar processes.

    Most slightly-above-bottom-tier-but-still-cheap AM4 mobos will have some sort of BIOS flashback.

    My-cheapest-component-was-my-mobo-but-I-have-an-RGB-case type cheap mobos with absolutely no way to flashback BIOS are a different matter. GL with those.

    I do not know...
    But if 4175 crashes, maybe it is better to stay bellow 4175.
    Maybe have to tweak the LLC, Phase Control and Switching Frequency if the motherboard have these features.

    Worth going through all this hassle if I already know I can do an all-core OC of 4450/4425MHz on my own?

    I prefer going into bios and doing it on my own. This software overclocking is not my thing.

    I own a MSI B550 Gaming Pro Carbon with a 3800XT on it. For me MSI - LLC3 seems not really correct. Nearly every check a testing say LLC should be reduced. Did i have to reduce it or does this message appear only for information about the steps of testing?

    And BTW - is the 1usmus AMD Ryzen Power Plan really still "needed" with this?

    Hi, I believe I've followed the instructions and system requirements / preparation closely and I am stuck at the first diagnostic stage. I pressed the DIAGNOSTIC button and after 11 minutes now, it has not passed "Step# 1" with no indication of any progress. Am I missing something?

    Worked like a charm for me on my 3900x. I ran the test default and it gave me 4475 4500 4425 4400 @ 1250v.(it took like 45 minutes) I then ran it reference freq 4375 and reference voltage 1325 and testing right now.

    Dude this is all it took for mine to stop crashing my PC, I just had ryzen master open as well and it seemed to go through and finish. Weirdly enough it applied to highest speeds to the cores with the lowest numbers, is that right? Because before I had ryzen master open it was applying the highest clocks to the highest numbered cores and it was crashing instantly...

    Could be; my 3800x at 4400/4400@1.35V can't even boot into Windows.
    And the temperature is lower than an all-core OC at same voltage 4350/4250.

    Can anyone help explain how I would use CTR to perform an undervolt? I am not interested in higher performance, but would love to see the same performance with lower power consumption. What settings would I adjust to achieve this?

    hello all, is my ryzen 5 3600 not good? the program after starting the diagnostic tells me that it is a bronze sample ... have I been unlucky with the lottery?

    This classification is from the Diagnostics which is not really reliable at the moment.
    If you try again or change some BIOS settings could easily become a Golden or Platinum sample :p

    If Diagnostics can run properly and you can finish the testing successfully is going to suggest you some settings for undervolting too.

    Recomended values for Overclocking:
    Reference frequency: 4150 MHz
    Reference voltage: 1275 mV
    Recomended values for Undervoolt:
