I've noticed that AMD Cool'n'Quiet has stopped working for my Ryzen 5 3600 and the CPU frequency stays constant at 3600MHz even on idle. I've disabled Core Performance Boost and PBO in the BIOS because it shoots up my temperature into the high 80s. I also went into the windows power options and cycled between Ryzen Balanced, regular balanced and regular powersave but it doesn't seem to make any difference. I've double checked if the minimum processor state is set to 5% and it is.

What am I missing here? Any help would be appreciated!

System specs:
AMD Ryzen 5 3600
MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX (BIOS v3.50)
GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
2x8GB DDR4 RAM @3200MHz
