Hello,

I want to undervolt Ryzen 5 3600X without involving overclocking in it by using negative voltage offset.

But I was wondering if it can cause Windows boot issues and/or data loss when reaching the point of CPU instability when stress testing it.

Undervolting is fine. As with anything running outside specs, it's a matter of trial and error. Stress test it with a game or two, Cinebench R20, AIDA64, and Prime95. If those pass you should be okay.
