When I first got my 3700x, I attempted to overclock it manually, but whenever I overclocked it to 4.0 ghz or above, it caused my games to either freeze or crash. I’ve heard that each individual chip has a different boost clock, for example other 3700x chips might be able to reach a higher boost clock on the same motherboard. So I figured that I just got unlucky, but I think I was wrong. Since then, I’ve done research on precision boost overdrive, and decided to turn it on. The results by doing this surprised me a lot. Turning on PBO automatically overclocked my CPU to 4.4 ghz, which seems to be stable so far. I’m not sure why, considering that I can’t even get a stable manual overclock as high, but at the same time I’m really impressed.
