Ryzen R7 1700 power options and boost clock observation

Though it is suggested  over the forums to set Power Options to High Performance to prevent lag or shorten the dynamic clock response on the Ryzen CPU, I've notice that hardware monitoring will not be able to display the the boost value. You will only see it on Max column sometimes compared to a Balance settings. I tweaked the High Performance settings's Minimum power state from 100 to 80 percent and saved it as my High performance work plan.


The Ryzen 7 1700 now down clocks to 2555 and scales to  2695, 3194, 3742 mhz. With the High performance, it always at 3196 mhz.
