Is there a way to limit max frequency/max voltage while still allowing PBO to run in ryzen 5900x?
I am looking to reduce the max temps (also looking at idle temps when AGESA 18.104.22.168, PBO2 and Offset Voltage come to my motherboard later) which sometimes spike to 85C+ under load. I know it is not a problem, but I would prefer to keep it under 80C. Is there a way to thermal throttle at 80C, cap the max frequency or the max voltage while still allowing PBO to run in ryzen 5900x? I have tried to reduce Max CPU State in Windows Power Plan to 99%, and it plain out disables boosts and stays at base frequency.

85° while below the tjmax of the chip is a bit warm. What are you using for a cooling solution and are you sure that your cooler is making good contact? There is no need to intentionally gimp the processor when lower temps can be achieved with a slight under volt.
Yes there is exacly setting in BIOS what you want, name is Platform Thermal Throttle Limit and you set it to 80C.
I have exactly set it because of the same reason, I have also better than stock performance, becuase I also set curve optimizer. Important thing is to make sure you do not increase PBO limits (must be set to Auto).
