AMD - please let us turn off 20 degC over-report in 1800X

I've read the reason why the Ryzen X processors over-report CPU die temperature by 20 degrees C.


OK, but at least let users optionally turn this off!


My mobo BIOS fan control is designed for a normal range of CPU temps.  Having the sensor report 20 degC high means all ramp control is impossible - the best I can do is fans idle or full blast, and even moderate changes in system load will jump them between these states.  I've seen others discuss this too.


So this Band-Aid for cooling actually causes a cooling problem and a major irritation.  I now wish I hadn't bought an 'X' CPU - the performance boost isn't really worth the annoyance.
