Ryzen 1600X stuck a 2.2GHZ ?
« on: 26-April-17, 16:03:05 »

Hello,

I have recently upgraded my computer, and now run a Ryzen 1600X on a MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon, along with 3200Mhz Corsair DDR4.
However, the performance I get is far from exceptionnal:
CPU-Z tells me that my CPU is running at 22 x 100Mhz. How can I get the CPU to run at 3.6Ghz (or more) ?
I have tried to tweak things in the BIOS, with no luck. AMD Ryzen master doesn't do much either.
Benchmarking the CPU in CPU-Z indicates performance inferior to a 2500K in SC mode...

How can I unlock its full potential?
Thank you for your help, I don't quite know where to look...

Two things here.  Make sure you have the latest version of CPU-Z.  That can make a difference.

Forget Ryzen Master.  For some people that might work, however, you really want to do BIOS configuration instead.  If the processor is stuck at slow speeds... Clear your CMOS.  Update your BIOS revision to something recent and stable (non BETA) and leave it at stock settings and retest.  THEN, start tweaking.  Just verify you are at the stock speeds you are supposed to be first.  If you don't have the BIOS that supports the 5 Series processors, that might be your entire issue.  It looks like it's running at engineering sample speeds to me.

Hello,

I have uninstalled Ryzen Master, and cleared the CMOS. BIOS is already up to date (1.30 as we speak).
Unfortunately, that didn't make much of a difference.
CPU-Z indicates that the CPU is running at 22 x 100Mhz, and the bench is still equivalent to an i5 2500k.
What am I missing?

Note that clearing cmos doesn't work on Ryzen systems if mainboard is not connected to power (opposite of what needs to be done on other systems). Retry clearing cmos that way. >>Clear CMOS Guide<<

CMOS cleared during the correct described procedure, no change yet.
Windows 10 recognizes that its maximal speed is 3.6Ghz, but never goes above 2.2Ghz...

Try setting high-performance power profile in Windows instead of balanced and retry.

2200 is the low power setting. You need to "load" your CPU to get it out of low power mode.

1. Download teh AMD ryzen power profile in windows

https://community.amd.com/community/gaming/blog/2017/04/06/amd-ryzen-community-update-3

2. Run something that loads all 4 6 cores. You can try something like the cinebench tool.

I have tried the "high performance" profile, and the dedicated "ryzen" profile.
No change...
I tried the Cinebench software to push the CPU and load the cores, but the clock didn't go above 2.2Ghz.
Cinebench R15 result: 653

I am really frustrated with all that... Hope someone can help me find my way around.
Thanks already for those trying to help.

My latest finding is that if I disable AMD Cool n Quiet in the BIOS, the Windows 'performance' tab (with the graphs) indicates 2.6Ghz, and no longer 2.2Ghz...
However, Cinebench results seem identical, and CPU-Z still indicates 2.2 Ghz.

The more I try to get around this, the less results I have and the more I get to think that it is a bug....
Anyone here sucessfully running a 1600X on a X370 Gaming Pro Carbon?

2.2Ghz seems to be the 'idle' speed, now how can I get over this? Any help, MSI ?

You should install AMD Ryzen Chipset drivers, it includes acpi drivers, usb and other stuff needed for Windows to communicate with the uefi or using the CPU features such as XFR or C-States ( or AMD Cool N Quiet )

And what's the cpu temp ? Overheats can force a cpu to shutdown or to run on low speeds.

Hi,
The latest AMD chipsets are installed. CPU is watercooled, so temp really is not an issue (25 degrees as we speak)....

I am actually in a very similar situation that you are

Current build

Ryzen CPU 1600 @ 1.275 volts
MSI Gaming Pro Carbon
Bios version 1.30
Corsair VENG LPX rated at 3200mhz, running at 2666 @ 1.35 volts

Everything seemed to be working correctly until i logged into today and noticed my multiplier was wrong in CPU-Z (x34 as opposed to x37)

The end result is the CPU is stuck at 3.40ghz despite the bios reporting 3.7ghz.

I have installed the AMD power plan and the latest chipset drivers. My first thought was it could be AMD master messing with it so i removed it but still no luck.
AMD Cool & Quiet are turned off as well as the C6 state in bios.
Windows still recognizes the CPU as running at default 3.2ghz.

This is very frustrating.

UPDATE:

Following the advice of another user, i enabled game boost in the bios then restarted. After that i changed the voltage back to what my previous stable settings were and saved the changes. CPU-Z and Windows now recognizes the correct multiplier. I was a bit curious about the warning message after boot to NOT touch any of the the bios setting with game mode enabled since all i did was turn the voltages down. and increase the OC to 3.7

Well it may be a windows issue with the 1600x being fairly new and not recognized, but CPU clocks are handled at the BIOS level.

There is a setting in the BIOS somehere that allows for the OS to handle power management and states, switch it to BIOS if not already. I can tell you in Linux, my CPU scales flawlessly from 2.2 to 3.4 under load. However in windows it always displays 3.5 regardless of the load.

Start by disabling cool n quiet. If that doesn't work, boot from a Linux ISO like Ubuntu 17.04 and see if the issue is still present.

Wow! That new BIOS solved everything, thank you for making me aware of 1.40 !
The 1600X works like a charm at 3.6Ghz, and being watercooled I can push it to 4Ghz with no problem at all.
Cinebench results are now very different. :-)

Thanks a lot to all those who tried to help !

I did some more experimenting. If you use the ryzen balance power plan, or high performance, your cpu will never clock down to 2.2. You have to use the windows balanced plan to get power saving.

Honestly, I would run balanced and just switch to ryzen balanced  for games.

The new bios worked for me temporarily but i noticed when overclocking my ram the multiplier is bouncing between 34 instead of 37 and windows is once again viewing the cpu speed as 3.2ghz. On the plus side i was able to reach 2933 @ 1.4 volts and default timings.

Hello my dear Friend,

I had the same problem with my Ryzen 5 1500x at 1.55GHz. After i update my bios to version A3 with M-Flash all problems were all gone. I hope u can find your help from my guide.

3.2 Ghz is the default clockrate of your 1600 so that is normal. The boost clockrates will depend on the load situation.

Honestly, I would run balanced and just switch to ryzen balanced  for games.
I've been doing some power consumption testing with different power profiles and loads in my R7 1700, and found out that the Ryzen optimized power profile has the best balance. It doesn't VISIBLE downclock to the levels of standard balanced, but I guess it's using the shadow P-States to downclock even further, as it gets each core to really low power levels. The only way to get lower power usage is core parking, that affects negatively the performance but consumes about a third of the lowest power usage of each core.

The clock rates are all variable and require a ton of experimentation.  I just guided my buddy through an identical build as mine and it took us over an hour to even get it close to my good fortune.  Regardless, loving the system and minus a couple wrinkles, it's been a good overall experience.

« Reply #21 on: 17-May-17, 12:00:04 »

Hello.
I am using 1800X and X370 XPOWER Gaming Titanium, but I am in trouble with the same problem.

Specifically, if you change the CPU Vcore voltage in the BIOS,
It seems that the clock is fixed at 2.2 GHz.

So, I can only overclock at Ryzen Master ...

※ When the CPU Vcore voltage is Auto, the set CPU clock is applied.

I am very embarrassed.
Can you offer similar updates as soon as possible?

※ Because I am a Japanese, I'm sorry if I did not know well

Have the same problem with a 1600X on the B350 Gaming Pro Carbon - can't go over 22x multi.
- Power Plan is set to High Performance
- Game Boost is activated in BIOS
- BIOS is the newest version (7B00v13)

Attached is a screenshot while running Prime95.

Edit: While resetting the BIOS to default didn't help, I seem to have fixed it by flashing the SAME BIOS version again. O.o
Edit2: Aaand I reproduced the bug: Turning the GAME BOOST on seems to lock the multi to 22x. Turning it back OFF however does NOT solve it and it stays at 22x. Looks like I will flash the BIOS again and then never touch the GAME BOOST until the next BIOS version comes out...

I have the same problem you can press F6 in bios and load the defaults and it will boost again to stock but you cant enable game boost or change the vcore, so you can only overclock in ryzen Master. Its a bug of some sort with the bios but MSI support told me that they couldnt duplicate the problem and pretty much said tough luck.

It's a shame. :( I am quite happy now that I irrationally took the 1600X over the 1600, just because I felt like it. Ryzen Master doesn't really work here too, maybe because I still have that old graphics card (Radeon 6950), waiting for Vega. It's installed due to my system, but I can't start it anywhere and in the Radeon Settings, there ain't any hint of it, probably because this graphics card does only receive an old version of the Radeon software. (Yea, I installed the current chipset software corretly, but it kinda interfers with the older Radeon Settings..)  Never mind. It was just installed incorrectly..

it's most likely a BIOS bug that can get fixed. I'm hoping that it should get fixed when the next BETA bios gets released, so I wouldn't sweat it too much.
At this point MSI knows about the issue, so it should get fixed. :)

Update your version of cpuid there was a fix for ryzen 5 in the latest version it's a more accurate measure of what you're seeing but don't be shocked they recalibrated the bench results so they will come in way lower than previous iterations. I have an R5 1600x on my X370 Pro Carbon but have not overclocked or benchmarked yet Ill give it a go in a day or two and will post if I have any issues, I did have my 1800x on this board with 32 gig of 3200mghz ram up to 2933 and this board performed excellent.

I had the same problem with the latest 1.5 BIOS on 1600X/Pro carbon x370. Flashing the latest BIOS again using M-Flash did the trick. I had tried CMOS clear, different power plans etc.

In the same boat as OP. If I clear CMOS and use defaults, everything works fine. As soon as I change CPU VCORE in BIOS, my 1600x gets locked at 2.2GHz.

Please fix this MSI.

Getting the same multiplier stuck issue here.  As soon as I change my vCore to anything other than auto, the multiplier gets stuck at 15 which means my CPU is stuck at 1.5ghz.  

Really annoying issue.  One of the key reasons I purchased this board was for overclocking performance.

Hi,
Ryzen 1600x on B350 Tomahawk.
Bios Version v.15 (newest)
-----------------------------------
The CPU works great with Base Clock "100 x 37 - 3,7Ghz"
and goes nicely with Turbo boost on 1 Core to 4,1 Ghz.

(Yes i know the Ratio is 36 but my Baby works on 3.699Mhz and 4.099 standart^^)

But now
__________

If i want to Overclock. Even if i set the new clock by Hand -
the CPU only goes to 100 x 22 - 2,2 Ghz  

I hope it's only a BIOS Problem(or not?) because i want to overclock a lil bit   :/

quick update on my :
same issue
ryzen 5 1600 msi mortar
please fix
thanks


after a bit of trial and error i found out if i set my cpu voltage  higher than 1.325  the multipler gets stuck on 15.5
on ryzen master im able to use 1.375 and 3.8 ghz
on the bios the max i can get is 1.325 and 3.75 ghz
i cant push more in the bios because the voltage can´t be higher than 1.325
i´m on the latest beta bios
also if i push the ram higher than 2666 it also locks the multiplier, its like it detects a failed overclock and loads this locked multiplier settings
at 2933 i dont even post or get monitor signal
at 3200 i post and go to windows but i have multiplier stuck ...
honestly this bios is a mess

I have the same issue. I can't seem to increase the voltage past 1.325 or else the multiplier defaults to 15.5. Thus im stuck at 1.5ghz. Which is terrible. My temperatures are low. I got it stable at 3.7ghz at 1.325 but i can't increase voltage to try out other overclocks. I can put it at 3.8 on auto but that crashes when i run cinebench. Ive cleared the CMOS more than once, defaulted the bios in bios, reseated the cpu, and have updated the beta bios multiple times and consecutively. The computer just gets stuck at 1.5ghz. I'm probably going to return it unless they fix it within the week via bios. Reason being is i have a friend with the same motherboard where he can overclock it to 3.9 with 1.375volts and he can tweak it as high or as low without getting locked to 1.5ghz in the end.

I am using MSI X370 Krait Gaming Motherboard with AMD Ryzen 5 1600X (overclocked to 3.9GHz), Memory G.Skill Ripjwas V F4-3000C15D-16GVRB ( overclocked to 2933MHz ) and MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G Graphic card, Cooler Master 120 Lite cpu cooler and 550 watt power supply , Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit.

Issue's

Processor Clock speed limited to 2200 MHz i.e 2.2 GHz with the latest bios 7A33v13.
Processor Clock speed limited to 2200 MHz i.e 2.2 GHz eliminates when older bios is flashed i.e 7A33v10.
When older version of bios is flashed the memory clock speed which is represented in the windows task manager is 1067 i.e 2133 Double Data Rate.
When latest version of bios is flashed the memory clock speed which is represented in the windows task manager becomes 2933.
MSI Gaming App OSD Shows the right overclock for memory 2933 with both old and latest bios version.
No matter what windows task manager shows the right overclock for processor in latest bios and with older version of it.

update on msi mortar b350 and r5 1600
using latest beta bios 1.54 (idk if theres a better place to leave feedback to beta bios ...)
can finally do overclock in bios and settings stick in windows but after a prolonged period of time idle or after a pc suspension the multiplier is stuck on low with 1550 mhz
doesnt matter the power plan, if c6 state is enabled/disabled/auto if amd cool n quiet is enabled or disabled
memory is now running easily at 3200 gskill ripjaws v black (good job)
another bug i found is that the fan profile for some reason goes way agressive, after entering bios i have to restore fan profile to default
also the cpu seems to be running hotter than previous bios with same settings

The fan profile gets changed automatically whenever you set the memory to a speed higher than 2750 MHz. 
It's an 'undocumented' feature from MSI. They are working to document it properly though.
This happens because MSI feels that the heat generated by running the memory at a higher frequency causes much more heat.

Tomahawk B350
Ryzen 1600x
16gb Ripjaws 4 @2933mhz

Exact same issue as many here, after flashing to the newest bios (April release).

Ryzen Master, CPU-ID etc show CPU locked at 2.2ghz. Bios and Win10 Performance tab show 4/4.1Ghz. Not sure what to believe, but when running passmark performance test, I am getting significantly lower scores that before I flashed the BIOS. Gonna try resetting everything to default until a new bios is release.

First and last time I ever buy an MSI product. Never had a single issue with Asus or Gigabyte.

Read the thread. Read around.
MSI, Asus, Gigabyte, ASRock, everyone has been having this down-clock issue. It's related to AMD and their AGESA code and not so much the manufacturer's BIOS's. 

You're welcome to switch, but as others have found out, they'll have the same issue. 

The best I can suggest right now is setting the CPU Voltage to AUTO, and overclocking as much as you can using that. That should allow 3.7 to 4.0 GHz without issue in most cases.

Nothing changed with agesa 1.0.0.6 (MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon, bios version 7A32v17, Ryzen 5 1600X)

Tomahawk B350 board.

So what I have figured out is Game Boost DOES NOT WORK in any context that I have tested. Have had zero issues in achieving 2933 frequency with my ripjaws ram (both manually and using XMP), but turning gameboost on in any context causes the CPU to lock at 2.2 ghz (according to Ryzen Master)

With that being said, I was able to achieve a manual CPU overclock to 4ghz @1.375 volts, with ram @ 2933mhz.  System was stable and temps were fine with my CM Hyper led cooler.

So my deduction is Gameboost is a piece of rubbish, at least with this board/combo.

Also, my complaints with this MSI board have been more than just this issue, as I have read that some of these been across many brands. I lost keyboard when trying to install Windows 7 (had to go and specifically buy win10), and I had heaps of issues getting the machine to POST before the bios update. Most of the included utilities didnt work from the disk. etc etc

Anyway, hope this helps others. Got a great CPU mark score @ 4ghz, and stable too

Hi.
b350 tomahawk ryzen 5 1600x report in

Same problem. The processor's power is auto, it jumps up to 1.5V. I wanted to lower the processor power to 1.35. As a result, the processor more than 2.1 does not accelerate, put on the auto - the problem disappeared. How to be?
I worry. Voltage surges of up to 1.5 can damage the processor.

Just posting an update to my situation.
Finally I can set the CPU voltage without downclocking.
The latest beta bios batch solved this issue for me.

Cleared CMOS before flashing.

x370 gaming pro carbon, 1600x.

So I've been at this for over 12 hours. results:
reverting to ANY of the older bios versions does not solve any of the overclocking issues. it held stuck at 2.2ghz from verion 1.4 through to 1.7
touching ANY of the overclock settings period will result in locking the multiplier 22x and clear cmos followed by reflashing bios v1.7 twice is required to reset back to default.
after having everything bone stock I booted into windows and ran cinebench at stock 3.6ghz and got a 1207 for a score

I've confirmed all my clocks with aida64, cpu-z and windows task manager. I used cinebench as the benchmark tool.

conclusion: MSI LOOK HERE WHERE THE CAPS LOCK IS! -FIX THIS IMMEDIATELY! As an extreme user, based on other companies (such as asus) and their adoption time to new platforms, yours is astonishingly awful.
I honestly could not be more disappointed in the dumbed down bios version where the multiplier is not accessible along with many other cpu settings that should be up to the user to change. Aside from that, this motherboard
(along with many others with the same issues) shouldn't have been released with NO OVERCLOCKING ABILITY! I would have returned my motherboard already but at this point I've put way too much money and time into
building and adjusting software issues that it's just not worth it. You have a chance to make things right with your disappointed customers and I expect that an established company such as yourselves will hopefully care enough to back up your current and future products.

Quit complaining and look here : https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=283344.0
It's been resolved, and has been for well over a week now. In the BETA BIOS's. Go flash the latest one for your board and it will work just fine then.
Otherwise, See : >>Please read and comply with the Forum Rules.<<

Does using a Beta bios maintain warranty? Because I am tempted to flash to the Beta bios to solve that problem so long as warranty stays.
