    Crosshair Hero VIII WiFi motherboard is missing Cool 'n' Quiet option...

    Hi, I can't seem to find a Cool 'n' Quiet setting on my Crosshair Hero VIII WiFi motherboard. If the option isn't exposed to the consumer than my feedback is to expose the option.

    I would like to keep the CPU from lowering its clock speeds when idle. Disabling Global C-States stops the CPU Cores from entering a Sleep/Park condition, but they still have their clock speeds ramp down to 300MHz when idle or hover well below the 3700X's base clock speed of 3.6GHz when under a work load. For example: When running RPCS3, several CPU cores operate at around 1.5 to 2.2GHz instead of 3.6GHz at minimum, significantly hindering the performance of the program.

    My old Intel i7 920 CPU from 2009 could be configured to operate all 4 cores at a minimum 2.66GHz when I disable EIST/Speed Step functionality and the CPU was still able to dynamically boost to 2.70GHz, I'd like to be able to do that with my Ryzen chip. Thanks.

    I paid for a 3.6GHz base clock speed, let me run the CPU at at least that speed regardless of what the computer is doing please (preferably with Boost functionality intact).

    I use Ryzen Master software to monitor CPU cores.

    There are programs that I run which depend on tight synchronization and because some of the threads are lite work loads the CPU cores they get assigned to run significantly below 3.6GHz and negatively affect the performance and performance consistency of the entire program.

    Cores with high intensity threads also very often run below 3.6GHz which negatively impacts application performance.
