The test configuration:
Here is the configuration that will be used for the test of this MSI MPG X670E Carbon Wifi. For the publication of these tests, I used the latest BIOS received although new versions will certainly be available in the coming days due to the reactivity of Asus. We will also propose in the coming weeks several overclocking guides for your processor but also for your memory kit.
- Motherboard: MSI MPG X670E Carbon Wifi
- Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 7950X
- Memory : 32 GB GSKill Trident Z5 NEO 6000 MT/s CL30
- Graphics Card: MSI GT710
- Cooling system : Optimus waterblock + 480 mm EK radiator
- SSD : WD SN850 500GB PCIe 4.0
- Power supply : Super Flower Platinum 1600 watts
- Operating system : Windows 11 64 bits
A note that is important! We are going to talk about it because we had this problem on several X670E motherboards. Impossible for the first boot of the motherboard to arrive in the BIOS with 2 memory sticks. We had to boot the first time with only one stick otherwise impossible to access the BIOS. After this first boot, no more problem in dual channel.
A small tour by CPU-Z to make sure that everything is in order before starting our tests. The frequency and voltage are not fixed but evolve continuously. We will see in the following tests if they are well respected.
Let’s go for the overclocking of this Ryzen 9 7950X and our GSKill Trident Z5 NEO 6000 MT/s CL30 memory kit (EXPO) on this MSI MPG X670E Carbon Wifi.
Frequencies respected ?
An important point to check is that the frequencies are well respected with the processor we use. If this is not the case, it could mean a problematic BIOS, because the frequencies of your processor must be reached. It could also be due to your cooling system if it is not efficient enough. The processor reaching too high temperatures will be limited and therefore reduce its frequencies.
Let’s see what happens with our Ryzen 9 7950X under Cinebench R23 in single core and multi core. According to AMD, our 7950X should reach a frequency of 5.7 GHz on a single core.
Good news because during the Cinebench R23 benchmark on a single core, we can see our frequency reach 5825 MHz on core#1. Once all the cores are requested, the first 8 cores of CCD0 reach 5325 MHz and the other 8 cores of CCD1 reach 5100 MHz. Our processor is thus perfectly operational to attack our tests with a CCD0 more powerful than the CCD1.
