    Why is Battery wear level constantly changing?

    sadly I can only use Lenovo Vantage software. One Key optimizer isn't available for my specific laptop and Lenovo Energy Managment is installed but not usable like they show on the site I've just installed it and it shows the same wear level as HwInfo, but says 0/30 discharge cycles and no...

    Why is Battery wear level constantly changing?

    i'll try to see if draining almost to 0 and then going with a full charge will solve this... In the past wear level was about 1.2% and doing this solved the issue

    Why is Battery wear level constantly changing?

    Hi all, my laptop is a Lenovo ideapad 3, with a 35wh battery. I have it since september 2020 and the only thing I don't understand is how battery wear level works. Within the first 2 months battery wear reading from Hwinfo was always 0%. After a bit of time went to like 5% and since then...

    i don't know an all in one for your case (stay away from glary utilities or iobit things) but for disk you can try crystaldiskinfo to see if there are any problems for ram you can use memtest for gpu the best thing is to fire up something like furmark to see if it crashes, what temps reaches...

    How to fine tune PBO

    At first I didn't thought of that but then when I used 7A I could get better results than his and I think the only major factor is how mobo manages pbo He doesn't use it but as I remember using ryzen master in his system pbo settings were cranked up like crazy, leaving all default into bios

    How to fine tune PBO

    That's what I also thought. Setting edc to 7A was surely helping, almost capping it at 4200-4150 mhz in almost every situation in f1 2020 I also thought that it's a bit too much to boost like that with auto voltage so I got back to 70A

    Ryzen 3000 degradation with static voltage and static frequency

    At the time I got my 3600 I tried static voltage to get 4.2Ghz all cores an it was really toasty with 1.3v and also there were chances of cpu degradation. The best thing to do for me is play with pbo, and let it so its things. These chip are really pushed from fabric so I wouldn't do much with...

    Ryzen 3000 degradation with static voltage and static frequency

    As far as I'm aware +1.3v can damage the cpu, but 1.25 should be fine

    How to fine tune PBO

    Hi all, I’m opening this thread to gain Knowledge on how PBO works. Long story short, recently I built a rig for my friend and he as me has a r5 3600, the only different thing is the Mobo: mine is a b450 tomahawk max, he has a b450-f i noticed that in the same game his CPU is constantly...

    Now it seems to boost more often to 4.2Ghz, not like newer 3600 but also not as rarely as before

    how important is to update the bios?

    So I flashed today the latest stable version and it went all good, It even reduced the bios time of about 6 seconds.... the only downside is that I had to redo all my custom settings but not a big of a deal Now let's see if there's a preformance imprevement finger crossed

    how important is to update the bios?

    At this point i think as soon I'm on holiday I'll try to update to an intermediate version to see what changes and if I gain any benefit in performance (I doubt) and we'll see... After all if anything goes wrong I can flashback to the one I'm using rn that I know it's fully working

    how important is to update the bios?

    That's what I also thought, I would be happy to see some boot time improvement but I don't wanna risk (I know I can flashback but it's annoying) any suggestion on how to reduce them? I tried switching from CSM to UEFI mode only but it f***** up a bit of things and it was a pain to get back to...

The changelog says " Updated AMD AGESA ComboAm4v2PI 1.1.0.0 ". Is it necessary to update or I can skip? I know that you shouldn't update your bios...
