Ryzen 7 1700 OC tips

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey,

I'm new to oc in general.

I have Ryzen 7 1700 with stock cooling / MSI B350 PC mate / 2x8gb HyperX Fury 2400 MHz powered by Chieftec Nitro II 85+ 750 (with GTX 1070ti).

There are lots of different vids with different results on overclocking, I just wanted to ask.

It seems that with stock cooling and my mb and mem I can't go further then @ 3400? I've seen vids of people going up to 3.9 but it never works for me even if I copy the settings directly on the same (up to date) bios.

Id work on memory first, 2400MHz is pretty slow for Ryzen.


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

What settings are you changing? Every little adjustment can have a negative or positive effect on your system. 2400mhz on memory is also too slow for Ryzen, try to overclock your memory first and leave your CPU alone until you get you RAM as high as you can. I would reset BIOS to default and work on the RAM first, adjust the voltage and the frequency until you find something stable, I'm not sure how far your RAM will overclock but that's where I would start. After that use Ryzen Calculator to adjust the timings manually which will get some extra performance out of the memory.

I changed cpu multiplier and voltages, also tried to get my memory to 2933 or something like that like they did in a video tutorial, but afte 5 failed boots it reverted back.

You can't overclock like that. Start lower and work your way up. It's time consuming but should be worth it. 

 

Each time you adjust the overclock you need to test it with Aida64 or Prime95 to ensure it's stable. Only make one change at a time so you know where your problem is when it fails. When it fails, you bump the last thing you changed back one notch and run the test again. 

 

Set your voltage on the memory to like 1.4 and work on the frequency and once you get as high as you can then start dialing the voltage down to where it's stable. The same way you raised the frequency, test it each time. My voltage is at 1.37 for RAM right now. 

 

After you do the ram do the same thing for the CPU overclock. Raise to voltage and adjust the frequency while stress testing. 

 

I'm not the best overclocker, maybe someone else can add more. This is kind of how I do it and I have no issues with my overclock atm. 

 

 

P.S. Use the quote feature or type '@' and the username you're replying to.

Oh and make sure you reset the entire BIOS to default settings before doing anything I mentioned.

1.) Your ram speed will slightly improve your compute times.  Mostly in synthetic loads only will you see a noteworthy increase.  In gaming, it 2133mhz RAM compared to 3000mhz RAM is (a lot more math but easiest explained) 2-5 FPS if there isn't a bottleneck in place somewhere else.  I have a R7 1700 with 2133mhz, my brother has an R7 1700 with 3000mhz - weve done our own benchmarks for me not to worry about upgrading speed of my own ram personally as that isn't the issue with my rig but we wanted to see REAL LIFE results of increasing the ram speed (I don't care about synthetic benchmark Epeen numbers myself).

 

2.) Start with a multiplier bump of .5, test it, then another .5, test it (as described above by others) until it becomes unstable.  Then mess with your power delivery (slight increases) till its stable etc.  LOTS of good guides on Youtube that are coupled with exacts (I.E. How to OC this chip with this MOBO etc) - go there, really good place to start.

Faster RAM makes the CPU faster as Ryzen uses infinity fabric which runs at the speed of your RAM. 

 

If you're playing at 4k 60hz with a 1070 then no, the speed won't matter AS much. If you have a 1080 ti and are playing at 1080p 144+hz then I would say the speed of RAM matters more. You can gain as little as 1 fps and maybe as much as 10fps maybe more. Depends how important that is to you. 

 

If you don't care about about getting the best performance, then use whatever RAM speed you want.

 

Most overclocking results are only marginal anyway. Overclocking everything and getting the most from your system will allow you to see the best results.

ryzen 7? seeing as you have a 1070ti you probably can achieve decent fps on 1080p - 4K gaming. The Ryzen 7 was designed for workstation because it has a good core and thread count. Overclocking it if you can is a good idea, but if you are not happy with the performace you are getting from it gaming wise, then recent Intel CPU's have a very high gaming bench, but not as good as AMD for workstations, OR you can just buy a $50 air cooler (noctua makes good ones) and then overclock it very high. My friend has a i7 8700k and a 360mm AIO and he can overclock his to 5.3 ghz with no problems. my other friend who has the ryzen 5 1600 OC'd it to 4ghz with a 240mm AIO

 

dunno if this helps, just my experience with OC

 

hey have u thought about GPU overclocking?
