Overclocking an ryzen 5 2400g

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello!

So when I build my pc, I would want to overclock the cpu side of the apu.

But I don't know if is it worth coverclocking and will I be even able to overclock.

Specs : Rx580 4gb, b450m hdv, r5 2400g, 8gb 3200mhz ram, 1tb hdd, evga 500w 80+ bronze...

As for cooling, I will have 2 case fans ( maybe in the future I'll get another one ) and the standard cooler for the cpu.

First of all I don't even know if I even can overclock the cpu because of the mobo but I'm gonna assume I can. 

I don't know how much I would be able to overclock the cpu because of power consumption.

And can I and is there any benefit to underclocking the igpu?

umm. the igpu its not drawing any power if it uses RX. and RX wouldn't be used if ur not gaming for example.

The GPU was designed for hardcore performance and shut down the iGPU

and the iGPU was designed to handle the simple task and shut down the RX. igpu always draw very small power

Does it actually work

Does it actually work like that though?

I know with nVidia my RTX 2080 draws around 60W just sat in the PC idle (its not even hooked into the OS as I use IOMMU passthrough), even when using only the iGPU.

yes they switched place. the gpu both are used to transcript data from processor to display. they cant work together tbh. but the point is nothing to worry

I'm still doubtful, I've seen posts about people trying to do just that by having their monitor plugged into the motherboard and using the dedicated GPU only when gaming.  They had a hellova time trying to get it to work as its designed only for laptops.
