Ryzen 5 1600 (240 AIO liquid cooled)
MSI B450M Gamer
GSkill FlareX 3200 16GB
MSI Radeon Vega 56 /w Samsung RAM
SoundBlaster Z
Corsair CX650

Everythings stock right now and I can't find Wattman anywhere in the adrenaline control panel. I also can't get more than 4.6 out of my CPU without freezing. Can someone walk me through what I need to do please. Thanks in advance.

For the GPU you could flash the bios to a 64 if you want the most performance. Or you can just underclock it with higher freqs. Here is mine, I could run it higher but this is the most stable for me. I would guess that flashing gives you 5-10% more performance (OC'd), at the cost of more Watts ofcourse. The samsung Vram also can go to around 910 MHz without flash.

Just make sure you stress test it with Heaven or something.

Thanks for all the replies. I just wanted so badly when I bought it new to get it to 4.8 and I've tried everything. I pulled the trigger on a used R5 3600X no box or cooler just now. Got it for $180. I'll post back when I get it installed. Also I read that flashing a vega to 64 could damage the hdmi port which I'm using. Is this true and how do I get to Wattman from this newer Adrenaline control center? I'm not familiar with it since upgrading from a nvidia card.
