For GIMPS I seriously recommend undervolting your CPU. I dunno how it works on Ryzen 3000 series but I think setting a manual power limit to say 90W instead of the stock 140W wouldn't drop clockspeed by a lot, and neither will it drop a lot of performance since it seems like that the 3950x performs almost identically to 3900x, indicating a memory bottleneck. It greatly improves the efficiency of the processors for any other tasks other than GIMPS as well.
