Hello,
Specs: Nvidia 1070 ti overclocked
Ram: 2 x 8gb 3200 mhz, overclocked to 3266 mhz, 18-18-18-38 timings
Motherboard: B350 Tomahawk
I own a 2600x stock cooler, with a decent airflow case(5 vents),decent ambient temperature and i was messing around with OC

At the moment i have overclocked to 4.1 Ghz ,1.4V.
I know this OC is not stable, but so far in games that i play its preety stable, didnt get a single freeze or BSOD even in long sessions.
Cs go temp: 68C, with occasional 5sec spikes to 75C
Pubg: 73C, spikes for 5sec to 80C
COD Modern warfare: 77-85*C
Should i keep this OC if i only game around 2-6h daily and multimedia usage ? no video editing,no encoding,nothing else,just gaming and multimedia.
Also,could i get away with lower than 1.4v voltage to hit 4.1 ghz? or higher ghz, lets say 4150 at 1.4V?
I`m open to suggestions,
Thanks !

Running a CPU at the bleeding edge of stability could possibly damage your CPU (or at least shorten it's lifespan). I would say surviving a 15min RealBench stress test is the absolute minimum for stability, but that's me. You'll have to make the decision on what you are comfortable with.

Going higher on your OC (or lowering the voltage) is something you'll have to test out as well.

I have my 2600x @ 4.1 @ 1.35625v

Now running same oc but

1.4v could short it life span over time.

Should hopefully be able to reach 4.1GHz with less vcore. You really want to reduce the vcore if you can on a stock cooler.

1.4v would only be ok if you could keep temps under 60-70c and your board had some vdroop. I think your cpu will degrade at the current overclock.
You're also on the stock cooler so even a cheap aftermarket cooler like the snowman cooler would improve your temps quiet a bit, I can get 4.1ghz@1.35v<70c on my 2600 with the snowman cooler.

I'm running my 2600X at 4.240Ghz on PBO auto with slight under-volt, it would only reach 4.1Ghz max (4.05Ghz often) if i leave it at default volt

the only similar game we have is COD MW, maxed out at 74C on turbo mode after 2 hours of playtime, on Apex Legends it is mostly at 60ish C

Ryzen 2600X
Asus TUF B450M-PLUS GAMING (Bios ver. 2006)
CM Air MA620P TUF Edition
Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000mhzC15 (DOCP either at 3000 on either 3000C14 or 3266C16 havent really compare the performance in game, but userbenchmark shown similar performance)

and details about under-volt:
VDDCR CPU Voltage Offset: -0.08125
VDDCR SOC Voltage Offset: -0.06250
