I'm upgrading from an FX 8350, and didn't want to wait for the 3000 chips so I basically built a stop-gap pc with a 1500x, hoping the mobo will be able to power teh 3600 when it comes out. if not...no big deal.
Anyways, I've been overclocking it a little. I usually just bump it by 100mhz and then use the PC normally for a day, then bump it again and so on, just running the occasional stress test on the rare occasion I'm not using the PC.
So far, I'm at 3.9ghz and everything seems fine and I haven't touched the voltage. I've not OC'd a Ryzen before, so i'm getting paranoid that I'm missing something or that hardwaremonitor is reporting something wrongly. I've not even bothered to get a good cooler for a CPU I'm only going to own for a rew months.
I've run Prime 95 for an hour and seen a max CPU temp of 70c. Vcore holds rock steady at 1.24v and I've yet to have a bSOD.
What's up with that? I don't know if I'm even going to bother rounding it off to 4ghz. I just think I must be missing something

Hardware monitor Nuvoton NCT6796/6797
Voltage 7 0.00 Volts [0x0] (VDDP)
Voltage 8 1.24 Volts [0x9B] (CPU VCORE)
Voltage 9 1.36 Volts [0x55] (DRAM)
Voltage 10 12.10 Volts [0x7E] (+12V)
Voltage 11 5.12 Volts [0x80] (+5V)
Voltage 13 1.15 Volts [0x90] (NB/SoC)
Voltage 15 3.31 Volts [0xCF] (+3.3V)
Temperature 6 26 degC (78 degF) [0x1A] (System)
Temperature 7 67 degC (152 degF) [0x43] (CPU)
Temperature 8 32 degC (89 degF) [0x20] (PCH)
Temperature 10 45 degC (113 degF) [0x2D] (MOS)
Fan 1 2626 RPM [0xA42] (CPU)

That's after about 30 minutes small FFT on Prime95

That's not too out of the ordinary. It may or may not do 4.0 as it's always a toss up with first gen ryzen. If your ram isn't running at 2933mhz+ I would focus more on ocing it than going for another 100mhz at this point

I was mostly just curious about the voltage. I'm not too bothered about going any higher. The Ram is at 2933, but I'm going to leave everything alone until I upgrade to a 3000 series cpu
