I recently acquired a pre-built Ryzen desktop. I've accessed the BIOS, but there is no option for overclocking there. However, Ryzen Master works just fine and I can get my clock speed on all 8 cores up to 3.7 GHz on my R7 1700.
The problem is that after rebooting, my overclock is gone and I have to run the software over again. Is there any way to get the overclock to persist across reboots?
It is possible to change BIOS settings through software. See HP's Bios Config Utility here: http://whp-aus2.cold.extweb.hp.com/pub/caps-softpaq/cmit/whitepapers/HP_BCU_FAQ.pdf
It is also possible to autostart software after a reboot, and apply profiles/settings automatically. I believe MSI's Afterburner software does this for GPUs. The question is why neither of these methods are implemented in Ryzen Master. Don't get me wrong; I appreciate the fact that I can overclock my Ryzen at all. I'd just like to do it automatically, or in some cases, outside of Windows.
