CPU: Ryzen 5 1600
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V
Mobo: ASRock B450m Pro4 mATX

I clocked my CPU to 3.8GHz @ 1.4v and my RAM to DDR4-2666 @ 1.4v. Last night when it seemed successful I was running Fortnite at a smooth 250-300 frames per second, but today when I booted up and got on to play some games, I realized in more intense moments during gameplay (big gunfights, Fortnite endgame), my frames were dropping to about 30 FPS. So I set my RAM back down to 2400MHz @ 1.35v, but I am still experiencing these awful frame drops and it is nearly unplayable. Any suggestions or thoughts on what I may have done wrong or on what to do?

I am new to overclocking and would love to learn more. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

cpu/gpu temp and usage during the game?
ram/ssd/hdd usage during the game?
Hi thanks for the reply,
I have a PowerSpec 650w 80 Plus Bronze and 2 sticks of 8GB DDR4-3200 RAM.
While idle in the Fortnite lobby the CPU is at 56 degrees Celsius and GPU at 68 degrees Celsius. CPU usage at 29% and GPU usage fluctuating all over the place from 1%-99%

RAM usage at 7.8GB

Not sure how to check my ssd usage.
