Ryzen 5 5600x always at max clock?


I'm still pretty new to everything but I have tried manually overclocking my cpu to 4.6ghz ratio at 1.275v the temps are very good for me so I stayed with these settings, now my problem is the clock speed is always 4.6ghz even when idle, I also have power plan at balanced with min processor state at 5% but it doesn't do anything.

My question is, how do I fix it?

And is it safe to be always at max clock?

Re: Ryzen 5 5600x always at max clock?

If you changed the multiplier in bios to x46, then that will be it ?

Maybe you should list (or post pics) of all the changes you made, for someone to offer suggestions.

And what cpu cooler are you using.

Ryzen 5 5600x, B550 aorus pro ac, Hyper 212 black, 2 x 16gb F4-3200c16d kit, Aorus nvme gen4 1tb, Nitro+RX6900XT,

Re: Ryzen 5 5600x always at max clock?

The only changes ive made was changing the ratio and voltage to fix my temps.

And my cpu cooler is an nh d15.

Other specs are: b550 aorus elite v2, x2 8gb 3600 cl18 and a kingston a2000 1tb m.2 nvme


The only thing I wanna know is, is it safe to be always at 4.6ghz even at idle?
