Need help in reaching 3.8ghz on Ryzen 5 1600

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

I would just need an input to all of the senseis or masters in overclocking. Any input would be appreciated.

 

My current dillema is that I cant push beyond 3.8 ghz on my ryzen 5 1600.

So i tried pumping the voltage at 1.4 to get the 3.8 but im getting temps around 94°C or 96°C on prime 95 / blend. I've read a lot from people that they can even achieve 3.8 ghz with 1.4 volts but their temps are just 65°C to 80°C which really makes me wonder. My cooling solution is a CoolerMaster MasterLite 120 with push pull config.  I don't know my ambient temp but our temperature outside sits at 31°C. Apparently 3.7 is the highest that I can go at 1.356 volts without crashing. Any inputs would really help, not really satisfied with 3.7 as it is just a 100mhz from the boost clock. If you guys do suggest to change my cooler, is there even a signifcant difference by going to a 240 aio?

 

Update: even at 1.356 Volts, temps are sitting at 89°C

Yea you won't get to 3.8 on all cores without unreasonable voltages and a lot of heat 

Plus this 100mhz difference will not affect performance almost whatsoever.

Don't worry about it and run 3.7.

Thats sad but I guess thats reality. Is there any difference in temps when using a 240 from a 120 AIO?

Im Running 3.8ghz on 1.350Volt on an nzxt 140mm AIO temps at max. 60° at 4+ Hours of gaming sessions.

When temps are your limit, consider another cooler than stock. Was running 3.6 at stock cooler around 70° for some time with pretty agressive fan curve.

Now im running AIO fan at 900rpm constand and getting that temps. Pretty quiet and effectiv cooling right now.

BTW newer generations running much lower voltage and way cooler. My brother got the 2600  running none additional voltage at 3.8ghz on stock cooler around 60°C

with fans at 60-70%

That's not even a comparison 

The difference between 3.7 and .8 is way less than double

You won't notice any performance gains from 38.

You do know that not all silicon is the same quality ?

You seem to have a disadvantage of high ambient temperatures too, which isn't helping. Have you considered Antarctica? 100% free sub-zero air supply!

Yeah i know that, but he asked for input. When his CPU needs 1.4 Volts, thats "bad luck" but the temps are pretty toasty even at 1.356, so to get further u need to cool it more.

 

The Question is.... Getting an aftermarket cooler Air=30-50€ or an AIO for 100+..., when an 2600 or 3600 costs 150-180€

Which are running way cooler!?

With the 1600 you got the middle size stock cooler. The 2600 came with the smallest one.

Both none RBG Wraith Spire coolers 

German prices IDK the situation in your country :P
