Weird Performance with 5600X

Hey guys,
I‘m currently having some pain with my system, especially my CPU and it‘s performance. I have 5600X on a B550 Gaming Plus from MSI. But the performance is really strange. In CBR20 & 23, my CPU scored low in MT as well as ST. An that by quiet a few %. But on CPU-Z benchmark, my CPU seems to be normal. On the other hand, GeekBench also shows lower than usual values. I‘m really frustrated as I‘ve never encountered such an issue. Can anyone help me there? PBO is enabled and power limits set to motherboard.
Rest of the System:
6800 Reference
32GB 3600MHZ Cl16 RAM
280mm AIO
750W 80+ Gold PSU.

I‘m really looking forward to your answers!

Your mounting on your cooler good? Plastic was taken off? Thermals all good?

Yep! Temps seem fine, ~70 degrees on the MT run. But I seem to have found something else:
When using Cinebench R20, the benchmark doesn‘t seem to use the processor at it‘s highest capacity. Especially in the ST run! I had Ryzen Master opened and saw how the cores were hovering on 2,2-2,5 ghz or something like that, so definetly not the advertised 4,65+ ghz. I increased the priority of CBR20 to Real Time afterwards and it really helped, the CPU reaches it‘s advertised boost clocks. Maybe it‘s a problem with Cinebench and a bad utilization?

check your using the latest BIOS if not then flash it to the latest also think about just setting an all core OC to 4.65GHz see how that goes

Do you want screenshot from the scores? Or do you mean something else?
Yeah some screenshots, Cinebench R20/23 and CPU-Z bench so people can see and compare maybe.

Is the B550 Gaming Plus really that bad? I‘ve only heard good things about it. That would be a bummer.
5 real phase VRM (Doubled to 10) isn't going to it any good

Does it perform good in the stuff you actually use it for?

But Hardware Unboxed showed that it can even power a OC‘d 3950X. An that really without breaking a sweat (it‘s VRM‘s were at 71 degrees).

I‘m kinda unsure about it. It does perform good, but I question myself if I‘m leaving performance on the table and if I actually do, how much

In my system with a 5800x, if I use latest agesa 1.2.0.7 I have lower performance than with 1.2.0.3. Enable pbo and dont touch the limits and tell us if it improve

I've read many of these incidents on Reddit, that's why I rolled-back from 1.2.0.7 to 1.2.0.3 to 1.2.0.0 but there wasn't really any difference..

Not to bad, my thoughts it's because of your bios. First try to run pbo with default limits. Second option it's to try an older bios preferably 1.2.0.3c.

CPU-z scores are very nice. As for the high performance energy profile, it is worst than the balanced one for Zen2 & 3 imho since it doesn't allow the not loaded cores to turn off and allow the loaded ones to boost higher due to less power use.

Would you recommend using the Balanced Profile and crank the all the way to performance or just leave it in the middle?

I've already done that on (I believe?) all 3 of the BIOS versions. PBO disabled, enabled, advanced, normal and custom limits etc. PBO gave me a bit of an improvement but the single core still kinda remained the same

Balanced power profile with the minimum CPU performance setting to 25-35% tends to work best for performance for my 5600.
