Did you guys read the comments section on Tech Powerup before posting this article?

From 1usmus (Ryzen DRAM Calculator guy)
Delete this application and forget about existence, you will kill your processors!
This is hacking FIT limits, the last line of protection for the processor


On 4200mhz in the offset mode, the VRM controller goes crazy, supplying 1.4 volts to the AVX load, which is very much for this process technology. The FIT contains the maximum voltage for all cores of 1.325 volts, but this does not mean that we will see this voltage in AVX tasks. I strongly do not recommend using this horror.

Yeah this tool seems to come with some risks (that may or may not get sorted in the future) and should probably be only used for extreme overclocking feats with the expectation that your CPU could get damaged (like one might expect anyway with LN2 runs)

I'm not sure I would trust this tool for a 24/7 OC going by some of the comments by people who seem to know a lot more about how Zen2 works than I.
