Hi guys,

My Ryzen 2700x is running at sustained high voltages of ~1.4V-1.5V and ~3.8+ GHZ whilst idle. I am using stock settings (besides XFR preset for my RAM), and Windows Balanced.


  • Mobo: ASRock x370 Taichi (6.20)

  • CPU: Ryzen 7 2700x - latest chipset drivers

  • GPU: GTX 1070

  • RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 3200CMK32GX4M2L3200C16

  • OS: Win 10

I've tried changing different power settings to no avail - Power Saver is the only one that will downclock the CPU, but it doesn't clock it back up properly. I've also tried enabling and disabling Cool'n'Quiet/C-States but it doesn't change a thing.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
