Question Ryzen 5 2400G overclock w/ stock cooler?


Jan 13, 2008
Hi all,

Please note: I'm terrible at overclocking and I'm always worried about temps and noise.

My specs:

Ryzen 5 2400G at stock speed
Wraith Stealth cooler
Gigabyte AB-350-Gaming with F30 BIOS
16Gb kit of Patriot Viper 4 memory @ 3200 MT/s CL16
Adata SX7000NP NVME M.2 128Gb boot drive
Thermaltake Hamburg 530W PSU
A 1080p monitor.

I'm attaching CPU-Z screenshots for reference.

Would you suggest how I could raise my CPU / GPU perfomance without having to a) buy a new cooler or b) buy a graphics card?

My main concern is basically Shadow of the Tomb Raider: I'm running it at 900p with medium/low settings but I could definitely use a bit more horsepower. It's playable, yes, but clearly struggling.
I'm basically happy about general performance of my 2400G but SOTTR is maybe too much to handle for the stock speed.

Would I even see some improvement if I did overclock the CPU and GPU?

For example, I tried setting the multiplier to 38 and the CPU stays stable at 3.8Ghz all the time... and this is another concern! I mean, it seems to have lost the ability to adjust the speed according to the workload, it just floats between 3.75 and 3.8 Ghz.
Did I do something wrong?

Please keep in mind I'd rather use BIOS settings rather than Ryzen Master.

Thank you kindly.
