2920X downclocking very low

I'm running a 2920X on a ROG STRIX X399-E GAMING.

Whenever I hit around 180w TDP my CPU downclocks to 0.5 - 0.6 Ghz.

It only downclocks for a few seconds at a time but overall performance is lower with an overclock than without one because of the downclocks.


I have tried setting a higher than 180w TDP in RM but that didn't help.

I have also tried 4 different BIOS versions and have the same result on all 4.

I am running a custom water cooling loop and load temps are under 60 C on tDie.


Has anyone else come across this problem before?

Is there a BIOS setting that will allow me to run higher clocks?
