[SOLVED] B350 overclocking 12 cores

how well will a 12 core Ryzen such as the Ryzen 7 3700 with 12 cores and 4.8 GHz and 95 Watts run on my Strix B350-F gaming motherboard? I've heard it is not really good for overclocking or large CPUs.

Also, would a Ripjaw V 2400MHz RAM be good enough?

I will be doing 3D modelling, video editing and gaming on my computer.

Let me consult my magic ball...

In all serious though, its impossible to answer that question. Currently all we have is rumors, there might not even be a 12 core processor.
Even if there is, speculating on clock speeds and temps is impossible.

I would say, generally, to not expect too much out of that setup, especially considering Ryzens history of OCing.

Given the cheaper boards (some lower end B350 and all A320) aren't really ideal for the higher core counts, like 8core/16thread, I'd assume as core counts increase, the feasibility of some lower end boards will fade.

Stock operation, I'd assume will be "ok" on a B350-F, probably not ideal though.

Ryzen thus far hasn't been a great overclocker. XFR2 & PBO is about all you can really do - and I wouldn't expect to see that change a whole bunch with 3000 series chips, regardless of the board used.

I would suggest waiting until the vaporware becomes real (as in available to the public for benchmarking) before deciding anything.

New hardware won't overcome the limitations of old hardware when used with it (like the aforementioned motherboard).

They say the new Ryzen CPU's can get close to 5ghz range, but I have a hard time believing that myself, Generally when you add more cores, the power draw is increased, but the TDP stays around the same, TDP only represents the cooling performance opr what wooler you'd need, and not total power draw, So if you do find some data on these new AMD chip, don't rely on on TDP numbers.

Now for the board, I can't seem to find a good data sheet on the VRM, But it's either 6+2 or i'm 90% sure its divided in 4+4+2 which is not good for high overclocks or high power Draw like a highly overclocked CPU but should be plenty for a 8 core with an ok overclock, So we will have to wait and see what happens, and get better numbers as the chips release to get an idea of what its going to take to run these things.
