3 cores of my 6 core processor are always asleep, not just staring at it on my desktop doing nothing. It happens even if i play games or anything else cpu heavy. Could it be related to the precision boost overdrive in ryzen master or some other bios settings? Thank you fro any response.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

What are your current system's specs? List them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Make sure you're on the latest BIOS update.

We will also need to know what games you've taxed the system with to rule out a badly written game or a glitch with the game's engine.

I am not completely sure about the bios updates. If i go to the drivers of my motherboard on msi website, there are drivers for chipsets and such i dont completely understand how to work with, so if you could give me advice i will be more than interested to learn. Thank you very much.

I have played CS:GO, Rainbow Six: Siege, Forza Horizon 4, Escape from Tarkov, League of Legends - everytime i was playing, 3 cores were asleep, ran benchmark in rise of the tomb raider and did the same.
