Temperatures I should expect when overclocking my cpu?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone,

I just decided I want to overclock my cpu. I know how to go about it and I've even ordered a better cooler for my cpu because I know temperatures will spike as well. I was just wondering what temperatures I should expect at idle and under load (running a ryzen 5 1600 non x, 16 gb ddr4 3000 mhz, msi b450 pro m2, gtx 1060 6gb, 550 watt psu.) as I saw someone having a meltdown once in a discord server about their cpu being at 70 degrees celsius.


Thanks in advance for everyone's help!

Under 85c would be ideal.

The 1600 doesn't OC well, so i would expect 60-70c while under load.

If you are Lucky 3.9 or even 4 ghz is possible on 1.36v.

Don't go over 1.4V.

I agree with this quote.

My old Ryzen 1700 was only able to clock at 3,75GHz on all cores, so I would consider 3,9GHz decent OC for first generation Ryzen.

Under 80°C at all times is perfectly fine. 85°C under stress testing is also ok, since you never actually push your CPU as hard as stress test does.

Hey thanks for your replies guys. I’m currently stress testing my overclock at 3.8 ghz running at 1.3 volts. Paul’s hardware was really helpful as well as you guys. I’m about five minutes into the stress test (using Aida64) and it’s holding 69 degrees Celsius pretty steady.
