That isn’t really OCed because when my 2600 is on default no OCed it runs about 3.75GHz boost clocks.
call it what ya want 🤷‍♀️
i just dont like anything that constantly ramps up and down. to me its like automatic trucks gear-hunting when your driving on hills. id rather have a constant 3.6 than having it boost from 3.0 to 3.8 all the time.

It will definitely need better-than-stock cooling to get the most.

What I'd do is set a voltage of about 1.375V and start increasing clocks from 3.5Ghz. Run a CPUz stress test for 5 or 10 min's and check temps. If under 65C increase 50Mhz and do it again until it gets to 65C under the stress test or it goes unstable. That would be a fairly safe overclock for your CPU, cooler and motherboard.
So far i was able to overclock r5 3600 to 4Ghz with 1.375, anything over 4Ghz crash Aida64 within 2min. Also temp was at 70c with hyper 212
