Ive just bought the asus rog 470-f new bios, also the ryzen 3600x and corsair vengeance lpx 16gb 3200mhz.

could someone help me with what timings and voltage and cpu settings for a moderate but stable overclock? ive been out of the loop for about 6 years.

Honestly there's very little point overclocking the Ryzen 3000 cpu's.... go into the bios and enable PBO and provided you have decent cooling and a good PSU the cpu will run itself up to it's max potential...

Edit: you can get some good gains in games by tuning up your ram timings, do a quick search for the 'Ryzen Dram Calculator'- that is a tool the community has put together with all the advanced ram timings to get the most out of your memory kit.

You can get good performance overclocking the Ryzen cpu's. The 3600x overclock results from time spy cpu, Results time spy 3600x

You will find it hard to reach much over 8000 cpu marks but it seems possible 4.3GHz and 3733RAM. This will put you above the 9700k in this graph. On time spy the average score is 8071 for the 9700k. Time spy cpu 9700k

source

To get a good score you will need to overclock your RAM as close to 3800 as you can and your IF to as close to 1900 as you can get. Overclocking the cores you should aim for 4,300 MHz (hopefully you get lucky).

The main issue that will stop you getting good performance is the corsair vengeance lpx 16gb 3200mhz RAM.

At 3200 RAM you should expect the following with a 4.3GHz overclock.


Manual overclocking delivered 4.3GHz stable all-core frequency with 1.35V.
The resulting 3dmark cpu score at the above overclock. Note there will be a difference because of RAM timings.

source

So with better RAM and a faster IF this 3600x could with b-die and faster manually tightened RAM timings reach the stock 9700k. IF1866 RAM 3733.

The main issue with the corsair vengeance lpx 16gb 3200mhz is the reported possibility of limited overclocking at 1.35Volts. source Also not found on B-die finder, b-die from Samsung having good timings and good overclocking potential.

This is my fastest bench run with the 3800x time spy cpu 3800x 11900
More real would overclock for the 3800x CPU Score 11765 all core 4.4GHz My maximum 24/7 OC
Stock Cores but with the RAM/IF overclock (no PBO etc, normal boost) 3800x 3.9Ghz-4.5GHz CPU Score 11413 IF 1900 RAM 3800 manually tightened timings. I am gpu bound at this overclock, so leave the cores at stock.

If you increase the DRAM voltage to 2 or so voltage with b-die and get the timings to CL12 @ 3800 you can hit over 12k in time spy cpu. 4174MHz CL12

There is decent overclocking performance but you have to really work for it. Tightening RAM timings takes time and a lot of memtest testing. The IF at 1900 is a pain to get stable and many can't reach 1900 with 1866 more likely. Then there is the silicon lottery with the cpu cores.
