AMD nooob, help with zen 2 overclock stuff

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Man these things were so much easier with Intel but whatever.

 

So I have a lowly R5 3600 and I'm not expecting miracles I just want it to get to the advertised 4.2ghz and possibly see how the PBO stuff works to maybe get a longer and higher all core boost.

 

I've been googling guides and whatnot and I keep getting dumb reddit threads where people don't explain what to set and what it does.

To make it worse I have a Asrock motherboard and there is no proper documentation on the web for the settings! It has QR codes in the bios that lead to blank pages that load forever :(

*edit*

Exact mb model: Asrock x570m pro4

*edit*

Basic questions:

  • For PBO, what is the default settings for a 3600?
  • What should my vcore be(I found something that said 1.3-1.35 max) my motherboard "auto" had 1.4?!
  • How/where do I change single core boost and all core boost?
  • Why is there 9 billion settings?! for cryin out loud!

gotta say your motherboard, each board partner has their own bios if you want to do it there.

Sorry, also I'm a moron, its an Asrock x570m pro4 . Not even msi, not sure what I was thinking.

PBO should be off by default. Standard turbo is called "precision boost", while O for overdrive means making it more aggressive.

 

high idle voltage is normal, you'll see it drop as load increases

 

PBO offset lets you raise the cap for both, while higher PBO levels decreases the difference of all core boost to single core boost (since single core boost is always higher)

trust me it's better than only having 3-4 settings like ancient mobos had

 

Each CPU is different so there's no guide that's 100% effective for all of the chips, some overclock high and some will fail even with +100MHz, that's lottery.

Never leave the voltages as auto, you'll need to configure each one, not only vcore.

I have used the asrock software to set the chip to 4.4ghz with no issues but I dislike the software, its really buggy.

 

All I'm looking for is where in the bios the setting is for the max frequency the auto speed thing should ramp up to but I cannot see anything like that anywhere :(
