DOCP seldom works so far, setting timings/voltages manual works very well, so yes AMD is not for total beginners as of yet(unless someone helps them setting things up)
I remember a work mate who bough a Strix B450-F and a 3600X for his son and had problems, I tried to explain the basics for him but it was just over his head. I asked him a couple of months later and he hadn't even tried to fix the problems. That's the average Joe.

You need to set XMP Settings on Intel Systems too, the difference is, they usually work out of the box. Can you show you the relevant BIOS Settings? Mine still doesn't work even though they are on Asus Memory QVL List...
I only have random reboots when I enable fmax enhancer. Fmax does some undervolting? (like the curve optimizer for 5000 series?) So I think this is an voltage issue. (too low voltage at some p states)
Increasing load line calibration to lvl2/3 seems to fix this issue. Performance is better at full boost clock. But in lower clocks/p-states the performance seems worse. (again too low voltage at some clocks/p-states, so it is either crashing or clock stretching) Maybe it is better to use +voltage offset with fmax enhancer, idk....
D.C.O.P. works fine for me, except for a cold boot issue, but otherwise it is stable.
