R5 3600X Overclocking

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just bought the R5 3600X and installed it on a ROG STRIX B450-F gaming mobo and i want to start overclocking. I have the R5 paired with a RTX 2070 windforce 8GB and airflox is not a problem in my PC. Im totally new to overclocking and also ryzen CPU's so i need a little help setting up. I do a lot of gaming and want to run 144+ FPS in most AAA title games which im  getting 130 - 180 FPS already so i want a stable 144+ FPS. Im using the stock cooler as of right now but can upgrade to a Arctic Freezer 33 eSports One. I do have the RYZEN master app. and also one question, In the RYZEN master app, i get the options to install drivers. Should i use the app or should i search them up and install them like that?

First things first, be sure to update chipset drivers then your bios.

I heard that if im updating the BIOS, sometimes if the power cuts it can ruin everything, is that true? And also already have the chip installed and using it right now. And how do i update the bios specifically?

You want to do this for stability and compatibility support for your system and memory.

You usually cant overclock that by over 100MHz so I wont bother. What about your memory settings? That will matter more for Zen 2.

Yeah you can definitely push more on memory, maybe try 3466MHz CL18-22-22-42 1.4V.

memory frequency, tCL, tRCD, tRP and tRAS. you'll find the latter 4 numbers in advanced memory settings. Last is memory voltage, if you havent figured.

First thing: Update everything.  Here's the link to Asus' web site, the Driver/BIOS page for that motherboard.  

https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-B450-F-GAMING/HelpDesk_Download/

 

Updating a BIOS can be scary, but it isn't.  Just don't do it during a thunderstorm or any time when you may lose power to your system.  Save the file from the web site onto a Thumb Drive.  Insert the thumb drive and shut your system off.  Turn your system back on, go into the BIOS (by spamming the "del" key) and go through the Update BIOS function.  Only takes a few minutes. 

 

Now that you're drivers and BIOS are up to date, you're ready to start. 

 

Overclocking Zen 2 isn't really the same process as an Intel chip, or even older Zen 1 chips, it's actually pretty easy to get a simple boost in performance.  I don't know your motherboard too well, or what it can handle, so the easiest thing to do is open Ryzen Master and select "Auto Overclocking" or "Precision Boost Overdrive" then hit Apply + Test.  Then you're done.  

 

Go back into your BIOS and you will want to enable your Memory's XMP Profile, usually a simple selection in the BIOS that should set your Memory's speed to its advertised speed, if your mobo can handle it.  Save and Exit the BIOS, and you're good to go.
