Should I be overclocking on an A320 board?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an ASUS Prime A320M-K motherboard and I am able to overclock the CPU via this utility called AI Suite 3. When I give a minor overclock, my temps for everything are in the 60s (with load, of course). So should I remove the overclock or keep it?

I don't know what software you used 

But from my understanding you can't over clock at all with that board

Somehow, I am able to even though I shouldn't be able to. It's a software provided by ASUS. So you reckon I should keep the overclock or not?

A320 boards are not made for overclocking (they don't even support it normally). In fact, they're not intended for even stock speeds on anything over a 4-core APU.

I wouldn't try it personally.

Temps are fine though. Isn't it mainly about the temp of the VRMs on the mobo or something?

I recommend removing the oc because most a320 boards have  a 4 or even a 2 phase power delivery 

And that is BAD , so the board probably can't handle it

im pretty sure you could do a VERY minor overclock  with some sort of program, (not through BIOS since it isnt 100% supported). I got a asrock a320m-hdv r3.0 myself and in its BIOS i can change the cpu voltage AND speed. I dont know yet if it fully works or not since i havent thought of it before.

Still wouldn't recommend it since most a320 boards simply aren't made for such thing

i got a a320m-hdv r3.0 mobo with a ryzen 5 1600AF and it seems to be working fine so far. But im guessing a new B350/450 mobo should do me better. Probably gon wait for the b550 and hopefully a price drop in the "lower" tier mobos.

Yes, the VRMs is what I was referring to when I said that A320 isn't intended for overclocking. And overheating VRMs are not "fine". Dead VRMs can take your CPU with them in some cases.

I'd wait for B550 and get one when you've got the money for it, for support for Ryzen 4000. You might see higher boost clocks on the CPU with a better board.
