can some of you experts look at this AIDA64 screenshot and tell me if it looks ok couldnt get my ryzen 7 2700 cpu to post at 4.0Ghz without the volts shown in the pic i must have a bum chip 4.2 was a no go without unsafe volts and 4.1ghz took me to 1.45 volts on vcore which i didnt feel comfy doing so this is where im at so im just wanting ot know if the vcore im using is ok or not loadline in my msi bios is set to auto

Most top out at 4.1ghz without going beyond ~1.4v.  The "common knowledge" about the 1000 series hitting 4ghz was also not true.  Statistically 3.9 was the average according to ~100 samples counting only Prime95 stability.  Most people ran them a 4ghz with minor instability present and the people deep into overclocking were going through several chips to get 4ghz+ 24/7 capable chips.

Up to 1.4V is safe. 1.37V definitely is

 

Time to crank up the memory then

It sounds like a blow off answer, but that is litterally all you have to do.

 

Generally motherboards will tell you what timings are being used, so you start by manually setting all of the timings to those.  You then bump memory voltage up to 1.45v-1.5v, and up the memory clock by one step.

 

Do some very memory intensive tests, and if all is good, bump it up another step.

 

If you have issues increasing memory speed, try adding one step to a few timings.  Make sure to keep track of which ones you change.

 

Lather, rinse, and repeat.
