I am still running the very old version 4602.
I am watching and waiting for 5800x to drop a bit, but would like to be ready to drop it in when I finally buy it.
I have my machine running just great but wondering what version I can safely move to and not introduce bugs or lesser performance for the old CPU I have running.(maybe even seeing better performance would be a bonus)
Looking for suggestions.
MB: ROG Strix X470-f Gaming
RAM: 32 GB Hyperx Predator DDR4 3200MHz (4 x 😎
GPU: NVidia GeForce RTX 2060 (6gb mem)
PSU: Corsair TX 850M (850W 80 plus Gold)
CPU: Ryzen 7 2700X
Cooler: Noctua NH-U14S (2 fans push/pull) Awesome Cooler
OK so I didn't have to wait. Wife bought me one for my BD beginning of Oct. Now I upgraded the bios to 5809 using my 2700X and then dropped in the 5800X.
I am now trying to find the best OC setting for the new CPU...I have tried just using PBO...but the Voltage seems high 1.43 - 1.54 and not really seeing more than about 4300Mhz and she is basically way to hot jumps into mid to high 80s within the short CB15 run. I have OC'd to 4600 and it runs cool with max 1.3V ( no load average about 36C...CB15 hits 68C) Room abient at about 22C.
I would like to leave it on PBO but don't see a benefit when it runs so hot.
So looking for advice on which BIOS I should go to and any tips on OC using PBO rather than the manual OC.
