Alright, I got a GPU undervolt profile running that seems stable and is saving about 20W vs listed stock peak during stress test.
This feels like a pretty good outcome imo, as long as it stays stable in day to day use.
If anyone has thoughts/feedback on this profile pls let me know - I don't have a ton of experience with afterburner.
I'll try to run some CPU undervolting and see what I can save there, i know the 5600x has some decent potential, but i've not done any AMD undervolting before so I'll have to do some research & poke around in my bios tomorrow.
I noticed the PSU fans were definitely on during the stress test, but I'm not sure the HDPlex fan profile curve is aggressive enough to dissapate the heat its generating - or if the single fan can keep up with sustained load (as some people have been mentioning)
I think the potential 20W savings here are gonna help, and if I can shave a few off from CPU undervolting as well that should improve things too - but this really feels like its going to be a battle won on the cooling side of things - rather than on this end.
I think you'll find this post helpful.
Note that for the 5600X the default values are:
- PPT: 76W
- TDC: 60A
- EDC: 90A
So you'll want to start tweaking down from there, these settings are in the AMD Overclocking section of the BIOS (PBO settings area).
