Out of curiosity, is there a reason you have disabled SMT? Generally speaking, F@H can make use of SMT and speed-up processing of the WU which means that you can fold more WUs in the same time-frame and get even more points.

This is how I would personally configure those systems:
(Dedicated) Ryzen 9 3950X - Enable SMT
CPU: 21
GPU: 1

(Mixed) Ryzen 9 3950X - Enable SMT
CPU: 18
GPU: 1
Spare: 5 CPUs for other tasks

(Dedicated) 2P EPYC 7601 - Enable SMT
CPU: 64

(Mixed) 2P EPYC 7H12 - Enable SMT
CPU: 126
Spare 2 CPUs for other tasks

The CPU values chosen are based off this neat chart that _r2w_ben created a while ago: viewtopic.php?f=72&t=34350&start=45

BTW, please note that due to the Forum policy, we would not be able to help out those donors who use client-type=beta and aren't part of the Beta Team. If you're interested in being part of the Beta team, please read this: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=8
