Ryzen 1600 clock speeds not reading properly

Hello,

So I overclocked my Ryzen 1600 to 3.6Ghz with stock voltages for a few weeks and it's been running just fine. I decided to check my temps using HWMonitor and noticed the clock speed was staying at 3.4Ghz, but had a maximum speed of 3.7Ghz. I opened CPU-Z and it was reading 3.4 and fluctuating to 3.7 on occasion. I restarted and checked the BIOS and it was set to 3.6. I am using a GA-AB350-Gaming 3 mobo with latest version. I am not entirely sure when these speeds got changed and messed up though. Could AMD Graphics drivers have anything to do with it? Could it be the Ryzen Master program that I don't even start up or maybe the Ryzen Balanced Power Plan? Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks

is their any motherboard software running that may change the clock speed? like some energy saving software? i know im running an AM3+ board that has an "economy" mode that drops the clock speed down to 1.4 and then boost it up to 3.7 when it requires the performance.

As soon as you overclock, all power saving features are disabled. I recommend using the Ryzen Master Tool for monitoring clock speed as accuracy of third party apps cannot be guaranteed.

I've disabled most energy features. I used the Master Tool, but it also wasn't registering the CPU overclock that was set in the BIOS. Not sure why it was OCed fine and now the issue.
