Need some help overclocking

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,

 

Currently trying to get some gentle overclocking on my components. So far my best settings are:

 

CPU = 4.2GHz, 1.40V VCore, CPUVcore and VCoreSOC loadline calibration both set to Turbo,

RAM = 3400Mhz at timings of 18-20-20-20-40-2T.

 

The problem is that when I done my benchmarks on Userbenchmark, the results are below expected across the board:

 

UserBenchmark: Results

CPU-Z: Results

 

Any pointers at all here? Really appreciate all the help I get on these forums, and I apologise in advance for being a scrub.

only getting 4.2 with 1.4v wow

by 2700X standards that's pretty normal, though a bit on the disappointing side

I dialled back the loadline calibration, there is another level above it (Extreme). Should I dial it back another level?

just make sure under load the voltage doesnt go past what you set it to.

HWInfo and some benchmark will tell you. just look at core voltage and that should have a max. if that max goes over the voltage you set then LLC is being overly agressive. you also have ~0.025V to the limit if you have the cooling to take it and you want to push more. (though i only know that number from gen 1 Ryzen and im a littlle unsure if it applies for Ryzen+)

It's currently air cooled with the stock cooler so I am being gentle with it I guess, I tickled it up to 4.25GHz at the same voltage and it's running stable in CPU-Z:

yah and i spotted a typo, Ryzen is not ment to be run at 1.65V, that would be pretty bad. i ment that the upper limit would be 1.425V which is the highest voltage a motherboard vendor(MSI) recomended for Ryzen AFAIK

 

If you are on the stock cooler still id be happy with this and be done with it, its a nice performance boost and as long as temps are fine then you are good to go

ok so the FX series of chips are the best ones because they can go 8GHz then?

nope just out of every PC ive ever overclocked. no point in getting an overclockable chip if it can't pass 4.4 IMO

do you know what IPC is?

OK first of all, thank you to all the guys in here helping me out, it has been a great amount of help and I love these forums for it. 

 

In close to this thread I was able to tweak some things and get more performance:

 

CPU = 4.30 Ghz @ 1.39V,

RAM = 3,600MHz @ XMP Profile 1 (auto timings),

GPU = +157Mhz to base clock and +997Mhz on memory clock.

 

Happy with the thermals, happy with the small increases in performance. I did get the RTX to +202MHz on base clock and the thermals were not bad but it was artifacting space invaders all over the screen.
