My insane overclock is in my sig.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 @4.5ghz with an insane +300mv offset. I saw the voltage creeping over 1.7v in hwmonitor. So i definitely didn't run this long.

Its not stable, but boots at it.
damn, cb scores? also what kind of cooler are u using to cool it?

N00b here , made my first custom loop from information on this board. I"ve taken a moment out from gaming to see if I can do this. Well here goes

CPU: 3950x
Name: drz400
Stepping: 0
Frequency: 4300
Ref Multiplier: x43.0
CPU voltage: 1.288v
NB Frequency: 1499.7 MHz
NB Volts: Auto
RAM: 16GB 3000MHz DDR4 16-18-18-36 @ 1.35v
MOBO: Crosshair Hero VIII wifi
Cooling: Custom Loop 3 rads CPU/GPU
O.S.: WIN 10 PRO 64x

Yea that's not happening. Cinebench would never open without BSOD and the cooler is an Arctic Freezer 34.

The temps are only fine since I never could stress the CPU.

I did get 3286CB in R20 at 4.3ghz with my old ram. Ill run it at 4.3ghz again with my new 3466mhz ram.

I like it! More RGB than I like but specs that would make me drool nonetheless.

Your ram, although 3600mhz C16 already, could be tuned to benefit your performance a lil.

Well then that oc doesnt matter if you can't even run a cb20 :p my r5-1600 at 4.1 managed to run one instance of cinebench20 before it crashed :D 3020 points with 2933mhz ram

Heloo, im currently new to AMD. I have read and watch videos abt ryzen 5 overclock o 4.2 ghz, there's a couple thing i want to ask:

  1. Is it save to OC ryzen 5 2600 past 4.2 ghz? (+ need guide to overclock, im on MSi B450M Gaming Plus)
  2. if i raised my highest all core frequency, will it only push the higher freq on load/full load and it will lower the frequency to 3.4 base (or even lower than 3ghz), or it will stay at the highest setting i push even not under load/idling?
Im looking for guidance in oc ing, Thank you in advance, i will look towards for the replies :)

Hi.

  1. It is safe always that your temps stay safe, personally I would not go with anything above 40-45°C
  2. This dependes. You can disable all power saving settings that means that your CPU will run always to OC frequency or you can keep the power saving options enable and the CPU will only run at OC Speed on full load. That's is your choice and based on stability.

Thanks alot :D, is it the power mode on windows or what? the balanced or amd balanced? Also, im goimg to use Deepcool gammaxx 300 with arctic mx4 thermal paste.

you mean 40-45c under load? that's going to be though unless you have really good cooling solution, which again will cost extra money.

Honestly anything under 90c during stress test is safe, as long as you are not exceeding thermal limits of your cpu it's safe to push for it.

my 1600 (non af) will sit at close to 80c during stress test but i've never seen it go higher than 55(gaming on not cpu intensive games) - 70c(gaming on heavily cpu intensive games) during day to day use.

im also using rainmeter so i can constantly monitor the temps without it being obnoxious like with afterburner.

No, I mean the power options in your BIOS settings.

The cooler and thermal paste are good for the porpouse.

My bad, 40-45C on non load or low load, that will give around 80-85C under load.

Usually, you won't get much past 4.2ghz out of a zen 2 part. Maybe 4.3ghz if you're lucky.

Heres the clocks and frequencies my CPU can run at:
Ryzen 5 2600 4.2ghz1.3625v
Ryzen 5 2600 4.25ghz1.4v
Ryzen 5 2600 4.3ghz1.45v or higher

As you can see, anything over 4.2ghz really starts to require sizable jumps in voltage in my case. My CPU tops out at 4.3ghz as any higher frequency requires a HUGE amount of voltage to be stable.

4.25ghz at 1.4v would be the highest I would run my chip 24/7, but in my opinion, 4.25ghz is not worth the added voltage over 4.2ghz.

damn that's quite high voltage to sqeeze more than 4.2 what temps? im curious what kind of voltage will 3300x need to get to 4.5ghz (reportedly it can go this high!)

3300x should be a fair bit different since it is 7nm Zen2 rather than 12nm Zen+. It hits 4.2-4.3 on all cores out of the box, while running at lower voltages and drawing far less power.

1.36v for 4.4ghz
https://ibb.co/vv0mf05
Different YouTuber got 4.575ghz at 1.45v, which is ofc too high for 24/7 usage.
https://ibb.co/kSrG8Z8
Id imagines you could get 4.5ghz at around 1.4v, but silicon quality and luck play a big part.

i wont mind having my cpu at 1.4v to get 4.5ghz, there are power states for some reason and not using them and pushing the cpu to the max all the time while it's not needed is... dumb.

my 1600 at 4.0 ghz will clock as low as 15% of it's set cpu frequency at idle, not using such features and pushing cpu nedlessly to 100% of it's performance "just because" is dumb.

ive pushed my 1600 to 4.1 ghz at 1.431v core, it was stable for two runs of cinebench20 and then it just kept crashing, i dialed it back to 4.0 for daily use and i havent seen anything wrong with it, yes it's all core 4.0 ghz 1.351vcore

I got my 1600 up to around 4.1 at 1.4v iirc, however i didn't have that CPU long enough to really verify long term stability
ive got my 1600 since september last year and hasnt noticed any issues, the performance is good, temps are good, frequency holds up. so far everything is good.

Hey guys, I built my new rig a few days ago, and I'd like to do some overclocking. I do have a little bit of OC experience with my old system, but I haven't messed with it in years since I OC'd it.

I now have:

Ryzen 7 3800X
Asus Prime X570p
GSkill Trident Z Neo (32 gigs, 3600) CAS 16
Gigabyte RTX 2070 windforce
Deepcool Castle 360ex aio

Can someone point me to an OC guide? Like a step by step tutorial? I've searched Youtube, but I haven't really found anything that gets into detail.

I'm currently idling at 36c, and it gets up to 67 on cbr15, with a score of 2197

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

try using cb20, no point using an obsolete benchmark, yes it's free too.

about overclocking i cant really help you, all i did on my 1600 was to up the voltage and multiplier hit enter and i left other stuff on auto :) you can really fine tune the ryzen chip but same like you i did not have the know how to do it so i just went the easiest way possible
