Worrying Power Reporting Deviation


New Member
At idle, my power reporting deviation fluctuates between around 70% to 105%. I ran Prime95 small FFTs (a consistent, 100% load) and the deviation fluctuated between 125% and 130%. After a few minutes, I stopped the test and the deviation spiked to 154% before returning back to typical idle fluctuation. Is this a major problem and is there anything I can do about this?
My CPU is a Ryzen 5 3600 on a MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX II
While I was typing this I noticed the minimum dropped to 46.5% and the idle deviation briefly spiked to 130%

You are looking at active counters and this is a mistake regarding proper energy spikes detection.
Use record a log function and test again, then review the recorded log.
Also use GenericLogViewer as review tool.
