Ryzen 1600 overclocking questions

Hey,

Perhaps this is all because I haven't overclocked anything since my FX8350 about three years ago, or maybe I just don't understand a modern and actually functional BIOS, but I seem to be unable to figure out how to get my 1600 to do what I want, which is dynamically adjust frequency based on load even while running an overclock. I know I could do this with my FX8350 (because I did it). I currently have my 1600 running at 3.8 Ghz, 1.3V. I used manual voltage control and intend to switch to offset though so it can adjust voltage based on load. But what is the point of that if the frequency is constantly locked in at 3.8? I don't feel that I need 3.8 Ghz to use google chrome, but want it when a 40+ layer photoshop document has to export.

    Don't have a Ryzen CPU but would like to know for future reference.

    I have a 2400 Mhz kit of Team Delta RGB RAM. It is overclocked to 2666 Mhz (not via base clock, just by changing the speed)

    As soon as you set the multiplier in the bios, it automatically turns off the power saving features. I'm not sure if you can manually change it back, or if it'd downclock after you did.

    As long as the voltage is dropping, it's not hurting anything to run at that frequency.

    Correct me if I am wrong-if it is set to offset voltage it WILL decrease, but if it isn't it will be locked at 1.3 regardless of load??

    I misspoke. With manual voltage, it'll stay where you set it.

    I'm not sure about offset voltage...I never use it. I either use manual, or adaptive (when available).
