Question My 3600x on my Asus Tuf Wifi X570 plus refuses to deep sleep/c6 state residency any cores!

I have a 3600x on an Asus tuf wifi x570. I have the latest 3001 Bios from two weeks ago and the newest amd chipset drivers from October.



Prior to yesterday my cores would enter deep sleep just fine and my c6 residency was always up there. According to HWINFO prior to this my cpu package power wattage would get as low as 13.5 watts. However since even before the Bios and chipset update I get 24.8 watts at the lowest. I tried installing AI Suite III 3.00.69 for the fan control and I think this is what messed it up. I uninstalled and blocked all the asus services from starting up and I'm not sure. Plus the lowest idle temps even with everything closed is about 40 degrees. I used to get down to about 34.



C-6 residency and package residency is constantly at 0%. C0 and C1 work alright but never hits c-6!



So I updated my bios and chipset drivers and no change. However my temperatures have evened out on the tctl/tdie which I am more than happy about. Before it would cool off 1.5 to 2 degrees celsius every second for like five seconds and then ramp up about 10 degrees celsius. Rinse and repeat.



Anyways still no change. Did AI Suite III ruin something? Is there something I need to disable?



I'm using sz balanced Ryzen v4 for power plan, all the settings my bios had (no cool/quiet or global c-states but everything else is set according to the preferred settings of that plan's website download page), all bios settings on Auto except for D.O.C.P. which is set the 3200mhz cl 16-18-18-39 32gb 2x16. Every other option in bios is on "auto".



What can I do? Thank you very much!

Can't you set everything fan related in the BIOS? AI Suite III shouldn't be necessary.

Be sure to check for further background applications. The Xbox app for example is notorious for waking up Ryzen CPUs far too often.

Also in the advanced settings of your power plan there should be additional settings. For example I'd suggest enabling "Link State Power Management" under "PCI Express" which should help X570 boards reach idle power consumption more in line with earlier 4xx and 3xx boards.

I've also noticed that the lowest voltage they'll get to now is 1.106V. They used to go down to 1.075V or something like that prior to this and even down as low as 0.200V sometimes. So now I am even more puzzled.


Also I have not touched anything in the power plan ever except to adjust display turn off and sleep timers. Never messed with anything else in the sz balanced ryzen v4 plan. Link Power Management is set to "moderate power savings". I assume it always has been prior to the bios and chipset driver update and after.


Also yeah this started prior to me updating the bios and chipset drivers so I don't think it's those it's something else.
