CPU:Ryzen 5 3600@4.2ghz

MOBO:B450 tomahawk max

should you overclock? i mean if you want to do it go ahead, it does take time and effort and is a trial and error process.

the difference between 3000 and 3200 in terms of performance isn't huge, though it's not hard to achieve.

just don't go over 1.45 for dram and 1.2 for soc. but again it's not guaranteed that you'll get to it, but it shouldn't be hard to achieve.

You can get up to 10% to 15% of extra CPU performance if you can get it to 3600/3800MHz.

 

Obviously not in every game /workload but it's still worth it in my opinion. 

 

Chances are your DRAM can easily do 3800MHz if it's Micron E-die, the question is if you can push the FCLK to 1900MHz.

3000 to 3200 should be easy, but it doesn't make a huge difference.

for day to day operation, 3000 is good enough.

I spend a whole day dealing in my OC in my tower and it crashed more than 10 times until I had the RAM where I wanted it to be

just reset the BIOS

there is a battery on the motherboard, if you take it out and wait some time whithout the powercord in the psu your bios goes to the default settings

Just clear the cmos then.

We don't know. 

It's not guaranteed as I said for the 3 time now lol. 

Also just don't go over 1.45 for dram and 1.2 for soc.
