Software in question; * Windows task manager * AI suite 3 * AMD Ryzen Master * ROG CPU-Z Hello folks. I hope that the above is enough for you to get an idea of the system we are dealing with here. After tripple checking everything; firmware, software and drivers are completely up-to-date. The following links are screenshots shared on ImgBB.com. Ryzen Master : https://ibb.co/SQN5jTP Task Manager : https://ibb.co/ZBCLcfp AI Suite 3 : https://ibb.co/mTxW5y4 Right now my computer is idle, I have a web browser open to write this content and have the three programs mentioned open. I'd call that pretty idle. Ryzen Master reports ; * Temperature 64.5 celsius * Core 1 : 4201Mhz : others (3-5) are asleep or at 300mhz or so. Task Manager reports ; * CPU 1 : 100% utilised 4170Mhz (as above others are asleep or 300Mhz or so) AI Suite 3 reports ; * Temperature 52 celsius * All cores 4375Mhz So the moment I put the machine under a synthetic load, Cinebench R20, Prime95 small, All software reports CPU frequency pinned to 3750 Mhz (100x37.5) The temperatures don't seem to change much, the fan speeds up slowly even with my near vertical fan curve and 0sec spin up time. Does anybody have a clue what on earth is going on here please. Many Thanks.
