luxor is still being judged by the masses


I had some issues with my 5950x. Initially, I had it on a cheap AsRock b450 hdv 4.0 but that motherboard could not give it enough power so the computer locked up often.
I then played around with enabling PBO, but temperatures were hitting 90C. Finally, I found a sweet spot with PBO enabled, +200 MHz boost and curve optimizer set at negative 15 for all cores. Everything is stable, performance is good and CPU temperature remains in the 70s without drawing more than 140W (vs 220W before when PBO was enabled with everything else set to auto).
I don't know if these are the optimal settings since I don't quite understand all these PBO setting but it's stable and I'm happy with the performance.
