SET IT AND FORGET IT! Key Points to Overclock Zen 2 & 3, Ryzen 3000 & 5000 Series CPU's. Settings are from @AMD & @1usmus and recommended CPU Options for High Performance Power Plan by them for Zen 2/Ryzen 3000 CPU's. Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) enabled in BIOS. This in my opinion makes the best set it and forget it overclocks for Zen 2 and Zen 3 CPU's (Ryzen 3000 series and Ryzen 5000 series). It combines all the best OC up and down throttle features of the CPU and Motherboard and no messing around in Windows' AMD Ryzen Master in Windows which can be a pain in the neck. This example is on an AMD 3700X with stock cooler (a litte dirty). ALL of my cores typically go up to 4.397 GHz by themselves using these settings AND THEN CPU will throttle back down when not needed. CPU will do much better with better cooling. See my video below showing how/where to set these BIOS Options. BTW, time to clean my CPU cooler.

BIOS Upgrade on the Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi) https://amzn.to/3tbCCm3 Asus 3801 UEFI BIOS,  Apr. 9, 2021: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards-Components/Motherboards/All-series/TUF-GAMING-X570-PLUS-WI-FI/HelpDesk_BIOS/ RECOVERY METHOD: https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1012219

A. Set the DOCP/XMP Memory Profile or overclock your memory separately. Where Zen 2/Ryzen 3000 comfortably went up to 3600Mhz on DOCP/XMP settings, the Ryzen 5000 may go up to 3800 MHz on DOCP/XMP settings more easily without the Infinity Fabric Divider jumping to 2:1 after 3800 MHz. @Thracks of @AMD says memory can go up to 4000MHz if you have a really good sample without the latency/infinity fabric doubling, but this will be far from the norm. See More . . .

B. You DO NOT need to enable OC Tuner or Auto-Overclock in your motherboard BIOS. This generally sets an all-core OC and DOES NOT control the CPU UPS (boosts) and DOWNS of the CPU (Boost Up and Throttle Back Down). It's just better to let the CPU and PBO handle the boost, along with the BIOS options above. Otherwise if you know the limits of your CPU, you can set CPU speed manually (all core overclock) once you learn what your cores top speeds are, but you will always be consuming max power and will probably need more cooling to get just a little bit higher.

C. Set the Below UEFI BIOS Options. Not all motherboards have them available to change: @AMD & @1usmus Recommended CPU Settings for High Performance Power Plan

   1.  Global C-state Control = Enabled (Advanced\AMD CBS)
   2.  DF CStates (formerly AMD Cool'n'Quiet) = Disabled (Advanced\AMD CBS\NBIO Common Options\SMU Common Options\DF Cstates = Disabled)
       This setting does not allow for Infinity Fabric to go to a low-power state when the processor has entered Cx states.
   3.  PPC Adjustment = PState 0. Two settings below:
       (Advanced\AMD CBS\NBIO Common Options\SMU Common Options\APBDIS = 1
              AND
       (Advanced\AMD CBS\NBIO Common Options\SMU Common Options\Fixed SOC Pstate = P0)
   4.  CPPC = Enabled (Advanced\AMD CBS\NBIO Common Options\SMU Common Options)
   5.  CPPC Preferred Cores = Enabled (Advanced\AMD CBS\NBIO Common Options\SMU Common Options)
   6. Power Supply Idle Control = Low Current Idle (Advanced\AMD CBS\CPU Common Options)

D. Enable Precision Boost Overdrive in UEFI BIOS. Allow it to run from the BIOS/Motherboard control. This is much easier than setting in AMD Ryzen Master manually in Windows; just enable these BIOS Options and don't mess with Ryzen Master in Windows except to experiment.

   1. PBO FMax Enhancer: Ai Tweaker or Extreme Tweaker on Asus mobo's\Precision Boost Overdrive, Accept\PBO Fmax Enhancer = Enabled ***Many people report they get better results with this option set it to DISABLED. Try it both ways to see which gives the better score It appears to not be needed (set to Disable) on Ryzen 5000/Zen 3 CPU's and effects scores negatively..
   2. PBO: Ai Tweaker or Extreme Tweaker on Asus mobo's\Precision Boost Overdrive, Accept\Precision Boost Overdrive = Enabled
   3. PBO: Advanced\AMD Overclocking, Accept\Precision Boost Overdrive = Enabled
   4. PBO: Advanced\AMD CBS\NBIO Common Options, Accept\XFR Enhancement, Accept\ Precision Boost Overdrive = Enabled

E. Enable Windows Power Plan inside Windows 10: AMD High Performance Power Plan (for Ryzen 3000). This allows Windows to NOT downgrade the settings we just changed. According to @AMD,  a power plan isn't even needed for the Ryzen 5000 CPU's and they aren't going to release one for it. They say to just update their chipset drivers and you can still tweak the Windows Power Plan. Robert Hallock (for Ryzen 5000) said, "Followup thought for the day: if there's no AMD Ryzen Balanced Power Plan, what's used? Win10 ships with multiple power plan options. The "Balanced (recommended)" is the Windows default for all CPUs & selected at install. That's what Ryzen 5K will use. Just install & enjoy."
