Balanced and Ryzen Balanced are fine
If I remember right they are based off AMD balanced plan, the balanced gives higher boost per core clocks with low to mid-level loads. You can check what's changed easily with mbk196 power plan tool, the changes are all in the processor area.
Techpower-up did a review on 1usmus Ryzen Universal power.
Anybody know how to get rid of the CPU temps sawtooth? It does this under Balanced and High Performance, only calming down with the Power Saver plan that makes the system super slow.
what CPU is this and what is the CPU clock frequency doing?
Ryzen works more like a GPU so clocks are very spikey, does this show up in other HW monitors (HWinfo64, OpenHardwareMonitor, HM, etc) you can mask it with slower polling rates.
Ryzen 5 3600X, clocks are between 4250 and 4350 during constant load while playing basically any game. All the monitoring software shows the same behavior now matter what the polling rate (1 sec, 2, 5, 8). Even if I am running nothing but Windows, my motherboard has a debug LED that shows CPU temp once booted, and it does the 10-15 degree jumps as well.
I vaguely remember a reddit thread about something like this, but haven't found it yet. Power Saver plan stills calms it right down and idles at ~30C even with 0.1 sec polling rates in MSIAB and HWinfo64. I'm kind of confused but will keep searching for some settings to try. I've already adjusted my fan curves to account for the spikes because the constant ramping and slowing was driving me bonkers.
I can't help much as don't have Ryzen, but maybe the first review of the power plan and it states what changed may give some idea's.
I finally found the post and followed it, seems to have worked just fine so far. Flat line for CPU temps according to all monitoring software and motherboard indicators, performance is the same or higher in CB15/20 and a few games.
The latest AMD chipset driver together with Ryzen Balanced works fine for the 3000 series.
This is the best way to kill your rig rapidly, i advice you to always leave all by default, and try to buy high end parts
This won't harm the system. Don't be silly. I've done far worse, and have had systems last for years.
