As I posted above:I haven't tried, I read some reviews on it and it seemed like turning it off was a wash, helping in some things and hurting in others so I didn't bother. My temps are relatively high though so I've been meaning to repaste the CPU and see if that helps.
I checked the power plan and I had it on high performance still, but now there's a Ryzen High Performance mode listed so I'll switch to that and retry.
Ryzen power plan was removed for the 5000 series in the chipset drivers. Windows is able to handle the power plan for the 5000 series as intended. Quoted from AMD support forum
"Ryzen 5000 series CPUs do not require a special Ryzen Power Profile, so it is not installed with Chipset driver package. Please use the Windows Balanced Power Profile for these procesors. Previous generation Ryzen processors will continue to use the Ryzen Balanced Power Profile for optimal performance and this is included in the Chipset driver package.
Starting with AMD Chipset Driver 02.10.13.408, the processor power can be adjusted via Performance and Energy slider on systems running Windows 10 2004 and later."
That is pretty strange, are you running the latest chipset driver with the Windows power plan set to balanced? My 5800X on a Noctua NH-U12A with all default BIOS settings on a B550 Taichi scores ~12000 in CPU.
