Firstly sorry as I am sure this is mentioned somewhere but I think it’s buried amongst the comments somewhere.
Just wanted to make sure I am testing the boost on my 3900x right. I followed dlDebaurer survey so I am using hardware monitor and cinibench to test it and I am only seeing boosts of 4.1 on my Aorus x570 Master.
This seems way low so I am sure I am doing something wrong. The bios is set to optimzed defaults, is there anything I should turn on/off?
Temps seem normal. The cpu sits at mid 30’s with the stock cooler at idle and if I recall correctly high 60’s under load (maybe it was in the 70’s). Actually surprised that it’s so cool as when I built my brother’s 2700x the stock cooler could barley keep it cool and had to run the fans hard; so much so we ran out and got him a aio). My stock cooler seems pretty quiet.
The only other thing is I am using some low end ram untill my order of Trident Z bdie’s shows up but I doubt this could affect the boost.
At any rate is there anything else I need to set?
