Hi, i was trying to find a light for my Ryzen 5 1600 + B350M Mortar but i'm stuck with a problem.
If i choose a different v-core from auto "let's say 1.19V", as soon as i reach Windows, from cpu-z or hwinfo i can read that despite the cpu freq. is switching from 3600mhz"or any value i choose" to 1500 while idling, the v-core is stuck ad 1.190 either browsing web, watching the desktop or full load while gaming/rendering/stress-test.
If i leave the v-core on default at stock freq it will fluctuate from 0.6V idle to 1.2V max, i would like to have the same behavior with a custom v-core.
It happened with every bios i tried, if i manually set a v-core, it will stay at the value i set regardless of the use "idle, gaming, load" despite having the amd cool'n quiet option enabled.
If i instead leave the v-core on Auto in bios and once in windows use Ryzen Master to set it at a custom value "same as the case before" it will normally go up and down according to the load but i have to launch the app and make the change every time i boot the pc !
Tried to clear cmos, reset settings, but nothing.
I tried to write many times at the msi support but they are answering my ticket just with generic phrases :C
I have exactly the same problem. When you manually give a value for the cpu Voltage in Bios it always run at the same value like it's stuck or something. Core Clocks go up and down fine. It is suppose to undervolt it self by the time you have Amd cool'n quiet option enabled. It works fine if you leave v-core in Bios on Auto and you tweak v-core/Core speeds with AMD Ryzen Master Utility in Windows.
I had no luck getting a clear answer from MSI either. To me it looks like Amd cool'n quiet option bugs for CPU Voltage ONLY(clocks drop fine as i said above) when you set a custom v-core value.
It has been more than a week from my first message to MSI and 3 from AMD and we still didn't recive even a little answer.
We would like AT LEAST to know if our problem is considered a problem, if we have to refer only to MSI or what.
What settings did you use in BIOS for CPU speed and CPU Voltage?
Also yeah...does your Mobo have any offset v-core, p-state or any option similar? Provide those details please.
With Auto v-core everything work on our board "more or less", problem start once you set a custom voltage "we don't have offeset option" since it kinda "break" the amd cool'n quiet feature and while the cpu freq can lower itself from 1.5ghz to *.** any custom speed you want, the voltage will stay stucked at the voltage you set on the bios.
If you can test this on your board for us will be great !
