I recently built my new rig. Out of the box my 5950x it scored 9408 in Cinebench R20. Then I enabled PBO 4 in bios and also tightened my ram timings which netted me 11,404. I've seen several online breaking 12k using the bios curve optimizer so I tried it last night by setting the best 4 cores to -5 and the rest to -15. The system crashed and I had to clear bios. I tried again by leaving the best 4 at 0 and the rest at -5. The system booted but R20 dropped 1000 points from where I was. I suspect the curve optimizer isn't working right on my X570 Tomahawk and I need to wait for a better bios update. Any experience or thoughts with this problem? I may go ahead and try an all core OC this weekend just to see if that gains me anything. Thanks

550 + shipping Euros at Amazon.de. Pulled the trigger. Only one was available. Delivery with Cov19 will take 1 month. 5600x, 5800x, 5950x under cold. Crosshair vii is good, but power section not built for such torture. Dark has a 14 phase 90 Amps power section.
Bios is a bit basic compared to an Asus but it's a very good board. If you get decent sticks of RAM , should have no probs setting them to whatever you want. My Intel Optane drive works a treat on it as well which is a bonus.
