High vcore and edc

Jump to solution

I bought ryzen 2700x and paired with msi x470 gaming pro carbon and gskill cl16 3200mhz 16gb ram, I have not changed any settings in bios but EDC is always 90 to 100% and voltage stays between 1.35 to 1.46 v when idle and 1.35 while load , temperature is around 30 to 40c when idle and 45 to 60c while playing games.. is it normal for ryzen cpus

avinath321, I have no experience with changing  power plan settings.  Please try the Windows Balanced plan and see if you like it better.  The Ryzen plan is for performance.  Many users have posted about wildly varying voltages, currents, clocks, temperatures etc.  It all seems to go with Ryzen.  I hope you are using Ryzen Master only to report observed parameters.  Enjoy, John.

avinath321, please post a screenshot of Ryzen Master (RM).  I suspect it is normal for your system.  What power plan are you running?  Do you wish to OC?  Do these numbers bother you?  Enjoy, John.

I have not changed anything only xmp profile

i don't want to overclock just want xfr do its job

only the voltage and temp bother me, but they change frequently.....

Thanks, avinath321, looks OK to me but if you want to be less close to the limits, then you can change the power plan to the Windows Balanced.  This is an area to experiment.  Here are your specifications:

As long as you stay below 85C, you should be OK.  Enjoy, John.

I am using Amd Balanced plan but when I set the processor power state minimum to 5% core voltage spikes up o.8 v to 1.5v , it changes frequently , they never stay for long.

now i am using Windows Balanced plan and vcore is now .80625v but sometimes it spikes up to 1.51v but for short time (<=1sec) is it normal?...... is it going to damage cpu?

avinath321, as you know, I am a user and cannot speak for AMD.  I do not think what you are seeing will in any way damage your processor.  Many users post about these variations.  Enjoy, John.

The voltage spikes are normal for Ryzen CPU/APUs. It often caused by XFR and possibly PBO in BIOS when running. Those spikes were designed to function like that in Ryzens.

Here is AMD's explanation concerning the spikes you are seeing. From AMD Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/8ojte9/amd_responds_to_2700x_spikes_above_15v_vcore/

>> AMD responds to 2700x spikes above 1.5v+ Vcore <<

Just to be clear those changes in voltage are perfectly safe, the processor will use as much voltage as is needed to maintain the clock speeds.
