So I just received my Ryzen 7 3700X on Tuesday and it has been a struggle to get base clock to work, but I have been testing a workaround that seems to be stable so far. 


Disable Precision Boost Overclock (PBO) [2 Locations in AMI BIOS {MSI MPG x570 Gaming Plus}]

Enable AMD Ryzen (Balanced) in Power & Sleep Settings

---Change Plan Settings

      ----Change Advanced Power Settings

            ----Set Maximum Processor Power Management to 99%


Idle = Base Clock 3.6GHz

Game/Adobe AE or Premiere = 4.2GHz


Temps while idle on stock cooler around 35C (Though I did adjust the Smart Fan control to ramp up sooner at 40C)

Temps while gaming around 65-75C


That's all I have right now. Still testing.
