Question What BIOS settings for B450-F 3700x?


Oct 11, 2017
Hi there!! Any help will greatly appreciated and passed on to others! I have been having a lot of trouble trying to piece together so many different sources to get my ryzen setup running properly.

GPU: Asus 2070 Super OC 8gb

CPU: 3700x with PBO enabled

Motherboard: Asus B450-F

RAM: 2x8gb 3200 FlareX cl14

PSU: EVGA Supernova 850 G2

Case: Deepcool matrexx 55

Cooler: Deepcool Gammaxx l240

Operating System & Version: Windows 10 V. 1903

GPU Drivers: V. 446.14

Chipset Drivers: V.

Switched from Intel 4690k at 4.4 to the 3700x. Since making the switch I have played with dram calculator but have very little experience with tweaking memory and yielded no success. I just use DOCP and PBO also using ryzen high performance power plan. I've always felt like there was more potential in the system and that I've received very inconsistent results in R15 and R20. R15 sometimes 2166 sometimes 975-1075... R20 sometimes 4964 and sometimes 970ish-2204. Will be doing a fresh install of windows within the next couple days to create a baseline as I have done a lot of common windows 10 tweaks since I last reformatted. I would love to get my system running in tip top shape including the memory.

I've run both r15 and r20 with HWINFO64 and never see temps above 75c. In r15 max boost is 4.3 and in r20 max boost is 4200. No thermal throttling that I can see. I have tried disabling pbo and auto oc but get the best scores with pbo enabled. I really want to fix these inconsistent results any help will be Very much appreciated!!
