Question Do you need to over lock AMD Ryzen 5 3600 when there is already a booster for it?

How much better is Overclocking over the stock booster which boosts automaticallly?

Is it worth it to manually go through the process for this AMD cpu?
Does the stock cooler for AMD support the extra heat?
 
A Ryzen 3600 achieves most of its available performance without overclocking, so it's probably not worth any significant investment in an aftermarket cooler for that. Even with overclocking on a better cooler, you would only be looking at around 5% higher clock rates over the stock boost clocks. And in games, chances are your performance is going to be limited more by the performance of your graphics card than your CPU in demanding titles.

What are the complete specs of this system and what resolution are you gaming at?

Thanks that’s all I really wanted to know.

If you want steady multi core performance, Overclocking to lets say 4.2GHz with reasonable voltage and temperature would be only reason to OC. If less, you'd loose on some single core/thread performance. Drawback is no voltage and frequency drop due to lower usage like in case of auto boost (PBO). Power usage would vary and with it some temperature change but that's it.
