Hello everyone,

I am using a B550 Tomahwak in combination with a AMD Ryzen 5800X. I have the problem, that any changes i make in the Setting / Advanced / AMD Overclocking Menu are not saved. If i change something and leave the BIOS I get the message that nothing was modified.

Even a CMOS Clear did not help. I even tried leaving all setting to factory values and just changing stuff in the AMD Overclocking Menu. Still the changes wont be saved.

Pretty sad about this, since I really would like to use the curve optimizer.

I also noticed that the whole AMD Overclocking Menu is missing sometimes, see screenshot. Didn't find out what causes the Menu to disappear so far.

BIOS Version is: 7C91vA4. Ram: Crucial Ballistix BL2K16G32C16U4WL RGB, 3200 MHz, 32GB



Anybody experienced similar issues? I could not find anything helpful with google.

Is the clock (time) staying set? Typically when settings aren't being saved, the battery is dead and needs replacing. However, you wouldn't be getting the error message that nothing was saved. I'd try a different BIOS.

Hi . There is a newer (beta) bios available, maybe try that then report back with findings?

I am a little hesitant to install a beta BIOS. I am worried that I could really mess something up with a beta BIOS which I cannot reset anymore :(
And yes, clock time is stay. Everything is staying. Just the inputs in the AMD Overclocking Menu will not get saved. And sometimes the menu itself is not even there. Its crazy.

Then why not install a different stable BIOS to test? Sounds like a BIOS issue more than anything. Flash to a different stable BIOS and test your settings.

I noticed this with the last BIOS was not saving OC setting correctly in the bios to get around this just use Ryzen Master as it seems it can do the changes and save them. The Beta version I am using is saving settings now but there seems to be some minor bugs with the Advanced Power options of Advanced 1 and 2 just not working so may need to set your PPT TDC and EDC manually

Why not use the OC tab (under Advanced) been fine-tuned by MSI? There's no guarantee how your setting will work in AMD Overclocking, plus there's curve optimizer in the OC tab as well.

Because it not working correctly If I select OC advanced CPU setting Power and select the Ah bugger I will just grab a screenshot and explain it better.

Yep OK PBO Advanced mode not working I have selected Option Enhanced Mode 3 AND the power limits are just not what they use to be in previous BIOS Last time it was PPT 1000 watts and TDC 500 amp EDC500amp The Power limit s shown are just the Stock no boost ones. Not what it use to be.

Seems like Ryzen Master does not support curve optimizer for Ryzen 5000 yet. But might have overseen it, I will check again.

I think there is only one stable BIOS for B550 Tomahawk yet, which supports Ryzen 5000.

Just tried this, Mode 8, 5 and 1. No effect to Vcore at all. Measured with HWInfo64. Always 1.313V under load.
Anyway I plan to undervolt the cpu to reduce temperature. That doesn't seem possible by Load Line Calibration.
Only affects the CPU under load voltage not idle voltage. And ya kind of seems to be a bit out of whack. And 1.3 volts is OK not sure why people getting all up in arms over the CPU voltage is not a Intel chip so will not work the same or have the same voltage profiles.
