new to overclocking, need help plz

I’ve always done it like this. Find the safe voltage for that cpu. My ryzen 7 1800x is 1.4volts. I set the clock speed as high as I can til it’s not crashing, once it’s not crashing then I start to lower the voltage little by little. 

 

This is how I get the highest clockspeed at the lowest voltage that’s stable. I’ve done it this way since the core 2 duo E8400 and never burned out a cpu. Obviously running the cpu with a water cooler will keep temps lower

since id rather not have to burn $105 for a new CPU if I bork it, whats the best increment to boost by so that if it becomes unstable I can just step it down and not worry about breaking it?

also, is there a way to boost/drop fan speed on the case and CPU fans without having to screw around with advanced settings?

if you don't change the voltage too much you can't really brick it. so if you're not sure, just use stock voltages

Whenever I adjust voltage, I do it by really tiny increments, like .01


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B
