Precision Boost 2
AMD Ryzen processors monitor the system's energy consumption, temperatures, and other factors to automatically raise clock speeds, allowing applications to perform faster.
Precision Boost Overdrive
Precision Boost Overdrive technology takes advantage of your compatible motherboard's design to boost clock speeds higher and for longer periods of time. It also allows you overclock the processor at the touch of a button.
AMD StoreMI Technology
AMD StoreMI technology helps to improve load times and overall system performance by combining solid-state drives and mechanical hard drives into a single hybrid storage drive. Frequently used files and programs are cached onto the fast SSD while other files are stored on the high-capacity HDD.
AMD Ryzen VR Ready Premium
Ryzen VR Ready Premium processors are designed to meet or exceed the recommended specifications from the top HMD manufacturers, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality for smooth performance.
AMD Ryzen Master Utility
Personalized Performance
The AMD Ryzen Master Utility provides you with multiple custom profiles to store CPU, GPU, and DDR4 memory configurations. Use it to configure performance parameters for the active cores and adjust memory times. You can also optimize general performance or fine tune your favorite applications.
System Monitoring
Monitor your system in real-time using the AMD Ryzen Master Utility, which features a histogram of per-core clock rates and temperature, including average and peak readings.

will the cooler master (air cooler) be good enough if i don't intend to OC or should I go water cooling? If water cooling any suggestions on what a good one is?
Asked by: Matt
There's no CPU that "needs" water cooling at stock speeds, period. Also, if you are thinking about AIO liquid cooling, then you should know that higher end air coolers can achieve the same temperatures as a lower end AIO liquid cooler.
