I have heard that you shouldn't overclock the AMD Ryzen 7 2700 and that you should tweak PBO instead. Im wondering what should I go with? Right now I have a 4ghz all core overclock with PBO disabled. Im not to familiar with Ryzen so what do you guys think? Heres my hardware:

  • AMD Ryzen 7 2700
  • ASUS TUF X470-PLUS GAMING
  • NZXT Kraken x52 AIO CPU Cooler
  • 32GB (16gb x 2) HyperX Fury DDR4 2666 (OC'd to 3466)
  • ASUS TUF X3 GTX 1660 Super 6GB
  • 1TB WD Black SN750 NVME M.2 SSD
  • XFX TS-550 PSU

4GHz is good everyday OC if temps and voltages are low enough. In general, Ryzen's highest all core OC is about equal of it's boost speed. Because of how Ryzen boost (PBO) works, most boost is on one core, at 4GHz you may be loosing a small percentage of single core performance you would get at 4.1GHz or under PBO.
Only question is at which voltage and what temperatures you are getting 4GHz and what would they be at 4.1GHz.
