1600X gets stuck at 2.2GHz when changing CPU core ratio

I have been having issues trying to overclock my Ryzen 1600X. CPU-Z shows that my core speeds are working just fine with default BIOS settings. But as soon as I change the core ratio by even 0.25 or 0.50, the processor becomes locked at 2.2GHz according to CPU-Z. However, Windows and Cinebench both show that the core frequency is set to 3625 or 3650. My memory is running at its rated speed of 3000MHz (I lowered it to 2133 to see if it would make a difference, but it did not). I have my power settings set to high performance on Windows and I have tried the last 3 versions of BIOS with no positive results. I was unable to find p-state settings in my mobo's BIOS because I read in some other forums that that might be the issue.

 

My build:

Motherboard: Asus X370 Prime Pro

Processor: Ryzen 1600X

Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB 16GB x 3000MHz

Graphics: Radeon RX 580

PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower 1000W

Cooling: CoolerMaster MasterLiquid240
