[SOLVED] One core on Ryzen 2700 not hitting boost clock - is this normal for 2nd Gen?

I have a 2nd-gen Ryzen 2700 (non-x). 7 of the 8 cores hit their boost speed of 4.1 (4091.3) but one seems to max out at 4066.2. I've tried running userbenchmark, prime95, cinebench 15 and setting core affinity to this core in task manager. I had the system running for 48 hours + and left HWinfo64's monitor open the whole time to track each core's historical highest speed.

I know that with the 3000 series it's 'normal' for each core not to hit the boost, but from what I've seen 2nd gen chips should be able to hit the boost speed on all cores (not necessarily all at once - I'm only talking single core performance here).

Fully understand that there's no noticeable performance hit here though I'm curious if this is normal for the Zen+?

Well, I've left HWinfo64 open & logging max speeds for 48 hours as I've run various benchmarks and used the computer normally during that time.

Got it, no - it's not 'worth' the trouble at all - Just curious as to whether this is expected for Zen+.

How do you like the R6 case by the way? Is the soundproofing pretty good?
