Hello all and a happy new year 2021

I have been trying to attempt to OC my cpu but I am walking into a place that i have zero clue how it works.
here are my specs:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
RAM: Crucial BLS8G4D32AESBK.M8FE1 2x8GB
MOTHERBOARD: Asrock B450 Pro4
GPU: Radeon 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro +
OS SSD: Pcie SSD 512GB

So far i was able to change the MHz On the bios to 4000Mhz but as soon as I change to 4.1 the computer runs normally but ends up crashing.
4.2 and it ends up never booting to windows the CPU fan just slows down and speeds up again.

I know i need to adjust the voltage but i have zero clue how much i should adjust it to.

Thanks for you're help!
 
The 3600 is 18% faster at gaming anyway, and, the 5600X is another 18-19% faster....

On the positive side, you have more than enough CPU to 98% saturate a 5700XT anyway....

Once you upgrade GPUs, then perhaps the 5600X supply situation will have improved (we hope)

GOod luck!

Max i can is 4.15Ghz
I Changed vCore to 1.4, sometimes 1,45 (Just to check out if it changed anything, example Enable CPU Ration 42/43
Changed OC Voltage Level to level 4 or higher!
Disabled voltage/power savers for the CPU, motherboard of course auto disables core performance boost!
Overclocked ram as well! 3200Mhz or 3600Mhz with cl18.
Everything didn't work!
Also watched 3 youtube video's how to oc my cpu, didn't work!
Maybe someone can help Us

How well you can overclock is primarily determined by your luck in getting a good chip.
Ryzen bins it's chips, and the better ones are used in higher performing models that can be sold for more.
Ryzen comes largely able to run at max speeds already. Overclocking ryzen is not usually very successful.
