Hi. I have a Ryzen 5 3600 processor with a Scythe Fuma 2 mounted on top. 


The issue I am experiencing, is that all six cores of the processor are clocking at 4080 MHz at idle


Things I have tried:

  • Setting Power Plan to Balanced, to High Performance, to Ultimate Performance, to AMD Ryzen Balanced and to AMD Ryzen High Performance.
  • Resetting BIOS settings.
  • Clean Windows 10 Education install.


The constant clock speeds of 4050, 4075, 4080 and 4100 are confirmed by Ryzen Master, CPU-Z and HWInfo.



CPU: Ryzen 5 3600

GPU: Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 XT

Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX
