Using Ryzen Master, 'C 04' has a golden star, but while running single core loads, this core is hardly ever used and is almost constantly in sleep mode.


I am using the latest chipset drivers, the latest ryzen master and the latest (sill beta bios from 01/07) BIOS for my motherboard.


I would have at least thought, as per AMD statements, that the OS would at least use the 'fastest' core in the system.


So would be interested to hear from other peeps, does your OS use the 'fastest' cores in your CCXs ???
