My ryzen 9 5950x it's stuck at 4.0Ghz and I can't figure out why!

This is happening both in Single Core Clocks and Multi Core Clocks. I'm using Cinebench R23 to test it, but I tried other benchmarks and the it kept giving me the same max clocks.

I don't really know where to look at when I dive deep into the Bios or Ryzen Master.

BIOS, drivers, everything is up to date.

I have DOCP Profile selected on 'EazyMode'and also selected on AI Overclock Tuner.

I tried 'EZ System Tuning' Normal and Optimal. Optimal gives me a bit higher clocks but it's still stuck at 4.0Ghz.

Tried to edit 'CPU Core Ratio' on AI Tuning Menu to 'Auto' and to '49'. But it doesn't change anything and when I get back to the BIOS the value is back to '40'.

Lastly I activated Precision Boost Overdrive on AMD Ryzen Master which allowed my Single Core Clocks to reach the 4.9Ghz but also overclocked my Multi Core Clocks to 4.3Ghz which makes the CPU temperature go a bit wild. It reachs 85º degree with 10 minutes on Cinebench R23. And I shouldn't need to activate PBO to achieve the expected clocks, specially because its considered overclocking and warns about warranty issues.

Doesn't work. It keeps showing me the same 4Ghz on BIOS, Cinebench, etc but even worse results when benchmarking. Single Core on not even reaching 4.0Ghz.

Rule Nr1: if you assume something is wrong, Reset BIOS to default state!!
Rule Nr2: don't "tweak" (or whatever), if you're not sure what that actually does.

5000 series CPU's perform almost optimal at default settings. Saying that, even experienced overclockers don't get more than about 6-8% more performance (if using "normal" cooling and keeping PC reasonably silent).
