Under 100% load it only goes to 3.67ghz is that where its supposed to be or no? Its on a 240mm rad so I dont think cooling is an issue
Yes, the speeds should be as follow:
4,000 MHz (1 core) [2 threads]
4,000 MHz (2 cores) [4 threads]
3,700 MHz (3 cores) [6 threads]
3,700 MHz (4 cores) [8 threads]
3,700 MHz (5 cores) [10 threads]
3,700 MHz (6 cores) [12 threads]
If you add the XFR feature that works on a single core it goes up to 4.1GHz and that's it.
3.7GHz on all cores isn't bad really, considering it's the first gen. Ryzen processor. :)
Even if you get it to 4GHz through overclocking the gain wouldn't be much, unless you run applications that use all the 12 logical cores (threads)!
Speeds should be near to that graph below.

You're welcome :)
Depends on how many threads are in use.
Thanks for reply! I think its all of them I was using geekbench
Sounds like it all the first generation Ryzen use a fixed turbo stepping depending on how many threads are in use.
The hyped self overclocking wasn't enabled until the second generation refresh.
