I am looking to overclocking my ryzen 5 3600x pass what I have overclocked it to and looking to see what other people have overclocked theirs too.
My overclock setting are: Cpu core voltage is at 1.4375 and my cpu frequency is at 4250 MHZ. My ram is at a xmp profile of 3600MHz 17-19-19-39
and that is all I have really changed in my settings

These guys - https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/ccc8ou View: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/ccc8ou/experiences_overclocking_3600x/

are getting about 1.327V for 4.2 all core. I don't think you should overclock past 1.40V otherwise you could damanger your CPU.
I run my 3900X at 4.4GHz at 1.40V. But only briefly now and again for benchmarking. I use either PBO or a 4.2 or 4.3 OC for daily work.

You've go pretty slow (high CAS) RAM.
Are you testing it by running Cinebench 20? These are the sort of scores you shyould be able to get - https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/ce3lcf View: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/ce3lcf/is_this_a_good_cinebench_r20_score_for_a_3600x/
 
Hi
On my 3600x on a Asus rog strix x470 f gaming I have played with Pbo, Ctr and all core Oc.

I am pretty close to what I saw in Ctr.
My bios settings are
Ppt 395
Tdc 290
Edc 290
LLC level 3 on Ctr in the guide I think Msi mobo's is LLC 4

Currently reworking Oc to get
My voltage closer to Ctr
Getting 4.30ghz @1.28125v
Soc 1.10v

Temps running Cb r20 high 50'sc low 60'sc
Cbr20 mc score 3924
You can see my specs in my signature.
Yours will vary depending on your cooling.

But do everything you can to get the Voltage down,
And if you can't then use the Ppt Tdc Edc settings and llc with Pbo and let the processor Protect itself.

My son's 3600 on a Msi b450 pro carbon ac is using Pbo with the Ppt 400 Tdc 200
Edc 200 and Llc L3 and is regularly boosting to at least 4.250-4.275g and up to 4.30 on 1 core.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!

so your saying I should back off my core voltage overclock a bit and my cinebench 20 score is 3742

The thread shows scores:
eg I'm at 4.2 at 1.37v manual overclock. My score is 3813

So I am saying that you should try with lower voltage for sure and that you shouldn't really go over 1.40V because your CPU will get too hot and throttle.
So try 1.37 at 4.2 and see what CB20 score you get.

Using CTR, it overclocks my CCX1 cores to 4350Mhz and CCX2 cores at 4325Mhz at 1.25v and running Cinebench R20 with a score of 3900 at 59-60 degrees. CTR is pretty good for the likes of me who dont like to mess around too much with BIOS settings, the lazy man's overclocking friend ;)

To be honest,I found that too. Originally it overclocked my CCX1 cores to 4375 and CCX2 to 4350 and I found it too much for the cores so down-clocked them to the above speeds and havnt had any issues since.
 
From trying the Ctr on my system it went through the procedures ok but when I tried to run programs it would lock up or crash so from watching the settings it was using in Ryzen Master and Hwinfo64 I just entered close to those settings in bios and no crashes.

There is a point of trying to go too high on the ghz for not enough gain in performance.

My previous Oc was
4.350ghz @1.31625v
With a cbr20 mc score of 3944-3955 sc 502-505

Current Oc at
4.300ghz @1.28125v
Cbr20 mc 3928 Sc 500
So the extra .50ghz and the voltage difference just isn't worth it.

It should go through downclocking that 1
And maybe raise the other 1 and go through the procedure by itself, till it gives you a final suggestion with a cb20 score.

You can use it by setting or creating the profile

Or
You can change the frequency and the Mv's to go higher.
In his guide it Said when changing the Mv by 25 = 50 mhz.
So
Freq 1250 to 1300
Mv. 1275 to 1300.
That is just a simple example. ( so don't use those numbers unless it is very close to what it is saying ).
You will have to play with it.
Also try running Asus RealBench as well as Cinnabench out side the program to test the system.
Mine crashed on those even at it's recommend settings so I went back to my Oc.

Also worth remembering it is still in beta stage, 1usmus,the developer is taking a break from it for awhile. One thing I have found with version 1.1 beta 7 though, it is loading frequencies higher than what the cores can take which is causing more BSOD's which never happened to me in the previous versions. Like I said, ive just been using it as a lazy mans overclocker and havnt played around with it too much yet.
