Ryzen 5 2600x overclocking to 4.7 ghz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so i have a Ryzen 5 2600x that i was overclocking and i got the idea to hang my 240 rad out the window because it was -20 outside. I had the r5 at 4.7 ghz at 1.475v witch is a little much i know. what do you guys think of this and how fast have you guys push your CPUs.

No Ryzen 5 2600X will ever reach 4.7ghz on a 240mm AiO mate, something's clearly wrong here.

What were you using to verify your speeds?  Or did you manually set the multiplier to 4.7GHz?

He did say it was super cold.

Awesome.  I used the winter to get my best benchmark scores too, but I live in a much warmer climate and I saw no where close to your temps.

@The Blackhat has pushed his i5 to 5.1GHz or something on a smaller Noctua IIRC, again by sticking it outside when it was cold out or something. 


 If you wanna discuss the X58 platform and get tips and advice: General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion. If you want to discuss old Star Wars games like Battlefront II and KOTOR, check out my thread: Anyone still playing old Star Wars games? 

 

Long live his RGBness, @Damascus! And Fractal Design/SeaSonic dude, @Ordinarily_Greater is awesome as well! Also the man who introduced me to the glorious XCMR, @WhisperingKnickers.

i was amazed by how i got it to go that far i wish i had more time to try it on my r5 1600. do you guys think i won the silicon lottery or what.

also if my mom let me i would try ln2 but see said it was too dangerous

A 2700X and a 1070 ti.  I have the highest Firestrike score for my configuration.  So that's nice.

With only an small air cooler, and regular room temperatures, I got my 2600 to 4540. No stability whatsoever, but it lasted long enough to get a hwbot submission.

https://hwbot.org/submission/3955918_mackerel_cpu_frequency_ryzen_5_2600_4540.46_mhz

 

The X are binned better so that alone could buy you maybe another hundred MHz, and the substantial cooling could allow for the rest.

Actually I see that as quite an achievement. Cinebench takes long enough to run that you can't throw all caution to the wind. I am curious, did you take any precautions in case the AIO liquid froze? Also, was the -20 C or F? Either way, that's pretty cold!

 

I had debated buying a walk-in commercial grade freezer just for overclocking before... That's -18C although I'd have to rely on thermal mass for runs as I doubt it could cool a continuous OC load. Never got one in the end, nowhere to put it!

Dosent really matter how cold it is outside AIOs have really low water flow compared to a custom loop
