My 3600 (non x) is at 4.117 - 4.175 all core, no single core boost?

Question asked by jerpster on Jul 22, 2020

Heres the issue, if you want to call it that. I can't get a core to boost, except to 4.194 every once in a blue moon.


Asus x570 Tuf Gaming MoBo

Ryzen 5 3600 (non x)

G. Skill Trident Z Neo 3600 C16

Gigabyte 2060s

Enermax 240mm AIO H2O cooler


I have PBO enabled, Auto OC set to 200mhz boost (limit of 4.400Ghz shown in RM), I moved my PPT up as it was throttling there, it got a bit of breathing room. And D.O.C.P (XMP) is set and running. 


I really shouldn't complain as a steady 3.975Ghz-4.150Ghz all core during benchmarks and stress. Under very rare times, sometimes at idle, ive seen 1 core get up to 4.194Ghz. My Voltage usually caps around 1.45v even at idle. My temps with custom fan curve have NEVER gone above 65C.  


Ive done countless hours of research youtube, gamers nexus, jays two cents, pauls hardward, forums, reddit, and the list goes on. Here ive seen some people getting a single core to 4.2 and above. Im just at a loss as to why or how im seeing all cores above 4.1 instead of a single.


So should i continue my hunt for single core 4.2 and above, or count my blessings and quit? Can anyone help?
