Ever since I built this Ryzen system, the power consumption has been really high. With the newest bios 2423, the load consumption even jumped up and will ignore all limits set in bios. I'm using a Ryzen 5900X with 32GB of RAM, currently set to 3800MHz.
For comparison, the CPU package power never goes below ~37W according to HWInfo. Under load, the CPU can hit 200W easily. I normally used the regular values for this CPU in bios (142W), but even Eco mode won't tame it.
I've used Win10 at first, then upgraded to 11 a while ago but the issue persists.
I'm using a CO curve set to maximum undervolting with most cores at -30 and the frequency set to +50, so the CPU will usually hit 5GHz under load.
I can, of course, understand that this is a powerful CPU and it requires some juice to run. But why would it consume 80W while I'm surfing the web with nothing but a game client (doesn't matter which one) in the background?
Is there any status, any tech I can check to see why the CPU is doing this?
Any help on how to setup (and/or limit) the bios are greatly appreciated.
