Using the Ryzen Master OC to try a little overclocking. I set the cpu voltage to 1.3v and worked my way up to 3.9 using Cinebench. Everything seemed ok and happy with the results so far. I did a stress test on Prime95 and at 3.9 after about 20ish minutes my computer froze. It looked normal but everything was unresponsive. Is the voltage setting off. I am really just wanting to get this chip to 3.9 stable. Any suggestions...first time at overclocking.
 
You can go up to 1.4 volts safely on most ryzen cpus. Make sure you are running cool, preferably Under 80c in prime 95, and bump the voltage to 1.35 or 1.325. If its still not stable at 3.9 with 1.35 volts, you could go to 1.4 volts, but i would just bump the clocks down instead.
