Now when I got the pc of course I was excited as ever, installed the gpu I already had and that was all good too.

However I wanted to get rid of ryzen master simply because when I had used it in the past when building my own pc I wasn't a huge fan. But to make sure I sent a email to pc specialist asking if this was fine to uninstall.

Then me being a impatient idiot saw the °bios overclock file° in my order and thought well that answers it. All overclocking is done in the bios. I went ahead and uninstalled ryzen master.

This is when I got the email back that ryzen master is important for the performance boost overdrive. Well bugger...

I emailed back and got a different chap who I think misunderstood as he said as long as no overclocking was done in ryzen master I should be fine.


Now performance wise all seems fine.


Aida64 test I'm doing 65-69 and clocks look the same as before uninstalling ryzen master. However it may be just paranoia but in re2 remake I swear the temps have went up from 63c max to 65-71. Fan loud as hell too compared to when last played. Again may just be in my head.

Please help clear my paranoia guys should I have uninstalled ryzen master? Is there some settings I can import?

Cheers

Really you should have asked questions before ordering as there's a lot in that spec you would have been advised against if its purely with gaming in mind, starting off with an overclocked 5950x

Temp is likely to be higher in a game as you have the combined heat of CPU and GPU under load. AIDA64 just loads the CPU I presume.

As suggested by @Martinr36, there are a few eyebrows to be raised at the selection choices. Unfortunately it's not an easy fix as it's the motherboard selection that's giving me the fear so it would be a return of the system for refund to put it right.

The rest of the spec is pretty decent with only the odd outlier (Storage is very poor, Wifi, replacing the very good corsair paste etc).

As for the OC. If it's for gaming, I would leave it off anyway as it'll reduce performance.
