    Confusion between CPU temp readings

    Explaining the AMD Ryzen "Power Reporting Deviation" -metric in HWiNFO

    What is your CPU? Even 3900X/3950X have a max rated EDC of 140Amps. I believe what you did made CPU power draw even higher and now the board's report understates it. Hence the 110% PRD. With that setting of 170A what HWiNFO reports for PPT/EDC/TDC, during R20 multi bench?

    Explaining the AMD Ryzen "Power Reporting Deviation" -metric in HWiNFO

    Pretty much at this point we are relaying on vendor's BIOS releases. We cant do anything to make PRD match or come close to 100%, as end-users I mean. Make sure to install also the latest chipset drivers (June 3rd 2020) from AMD directly and not Gigabyte...

    Explaining the AMD Ryzen "Power Reporting Deviation" -metric in HWiNFO

    Your board understates (by about 15~16%) the power consumption of the CPU. This means that the 142W (PPT) is actually 142 + 16% = ~165W. As many said in this thread, even if any board does that, it cannot bypass the protection of the chip if everything (CPU related) is on auto. Thats the...

    Explaining the AMD Ryzen "Power Reporting Deviation" -metric in HWiNFO

    ZEN2 works as it should if mainboard vendors let it work as it should. Dont just quote a section of my post. It cancels the value and the meaning of it, one that you have miss. What you call "as they should" in reality is the way you want and not as should, or AMD intended. And you keep...

    Explaining the AMD Ryzen "Power Reporting Deviation" -metric in HWiNFO

    This is a thread, one of those that you tired reading again and again the same questions, as if the answers are not on the OP (by The Stilt) and/or Martin's posts, the author of HWiNFO. Read carefully please... this thread is overinflated by unessesary questions and more... 1. Power Reporting...

    Memory clock not matching CPU-Z's RAM frequency

    Be sure to run latest UEFI/BIOS from Gigabyte for the board, and latest Chipset drivers straight from AMD driver site (not Gigabyte) for Win.

    Which CPU temp should i watch?

    Ryzen3000 has more than 50 temp sensors around the core Die (CCD). CPU (Tctl/Tdie) is the hotspot of the CPU and its switching (a few hundred times within a sec) between all sensors and report constantly the highest one. No other CPU do that. Only ZEN2. Die (average) is the average value of all...

    Is the tctl/tdie being 10 to 15 degrees celsius warmer than cpu die and ccd1 normal? (Ryzen 3600x)

    Get the latest beta version of HWiNFO64. If I remember correctly the 4060 was giving me also false PROCHOT CPU and HTC "Yes". I have 3600(nonX)

    I have a question for hwinfomonitor

    It’s not easy to find what each letter means. But the “VDDCR SOC voltage“ is the CPU SoC voltage and “VDDCR core voltage” is the CPU core voltage. Both of them are report board sensors for those voltages. The “SVI2 TFN” (Core or SoC) I think is reported directly from CPU and must be the most...

    X570 Aqua SOC Voltage Wrong

    Didnt @Whiskeyomega said (post #11) that he change it to manual 1.05V and then he saw it correctly? Well, boards BIOSs all have flaws and bugs and all shorts of stuff, but what I read from users... AsRock's are the worst ones

    I have a question for hwinfomonitor

    The actual or the closest to real CPU Vcore is the "CPU Core Voltage (SVI2 TFN)" value. Dont mind Ryzen's (3000series) idle or low load/current(A) voltage. When the entire package's current(A) is going up, the voltage is going down. This is how these chips work. Idle and lowest load (and current...

    X570 Aqua SOC Voltage Wrong

    Most likely in BIOS is set to AUTO so the board it self sets it to 1.2V. If you want to lower it you should set it manual in BIOS to 1.05~1.08V (VDDCR_SOC voltage)

    Sumsung 970 Pro Correct temperature

    Keep Temp #1 around 50°C or lower at load and it will be just fine. The controller of the drive will reduce write/read speed if temp exceeds 80~85°C so ~50 is OK. Here is my 970Pro 512GB after first 7 months as OS/boot drive filled to 62%. The drive sits above GPU under CPU socket with a board...

    Sumsung 970 Pro Correct temperature

    Yes the first and lower temp is the NAND chips. The one that has critical temp about 80~85°C. The second must be the controller of the drive, or maybe the power controller. Dont mind that. You can confirm that, with SamsungMagician (v6) software as only reports first(lower) temp. What is the...
