I have ryzen 5 5600x and it works on 4.85Ghz when PBO is turned on (we all know its based on limited auto voltages, power etc etc)

I have 12pin for cpu on my ASUS Prime X570-P motherboard but i use only 8 pin for my cpu (works fine). I have semi modular Corsair TX850M and i can plug in additional 4pin for cpu, so my question is: will my cpu go more than 4.85 if i give it extra 4pin connector (because mb will feel additional source of power beside that 8pin connector and will it give higher clock?) Thank you

As an FYI: no AM4 Ryzen CPU requires a 12 pin connector. Your processor in particular could get along just as well with a 4 pin connector.

The only purpose for a 12 pin is 1) if you choose to engage in extreme overclocking experiments, such as those on LN2 or another sub-ambient cooling method or 2) helps impart a sense of reliability while also somehow providing for superior performance potential thereby justifying a higher price.
