My overclocked Ryzen 1600 @3.6ghz is barely outpreforming the stock benchmark. It is stable and has never crashed on me so i dont think it's an issue with undervolting. It is also watercooled and never reaches more than 65c in stress tests. RAM is DOCP @ 2933mhz and is in dual channel.

Single thread (from cpu z): 386.3 vs 364 stock benchmark (provided by cpu z, not my own chip stock)
Multi thread: 3221.8 vs 3108 stock (provided by cpu z)

My build is:
B350 ROG Strix
ROG Strix GTX 1070
Ryzen 5 1600 @3.6ghz
16gb of vengeance ddr4 ram (DOCP 2933), dual channel configured
256gb samsung 850 evo SSD

With the cpu at stock, it enables XFR and precision boost, which might already boost the cpu to 3.6 or very close to it, or even to 3.7 under light single thread loads, as thermals and power allows.
Hmm, i didn't think about this. This could very well be the case. My overclock is very light so maybe i should try and push it further.

wouldn't getting faster ram give you more gains than overclocking the cpu?
