Lowest stable undervolt/wattage on 1600/ 1600x stock?

I've thrown together a CPU-GPU-heatsink sandwich for a SFF build and noticed the total wattage during synthetic tests would be around 2400 - a bit on the high end.

I was wondering, what's the lowest voltage (and wattage) that any of y'all have gotten on a 1600 / 1600x?

I think I remember seeing somebody getting down to ~1.05 on the 1600x, but I can't remember where.

I may be wrong.

Because of small manufacturing defects in the silicon chips of CPUs, each one will be stable at slightly different voltages. Download Throttlestop, and play around for a bit, or just fiddle with you BIOS. 

Main PC:

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X • Noctua NH-D15 • MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk • 2x8GB G.skill Trident Z Neo 3600MHz CL16 • MSI VENTUS 3X GeForce RTX 3070 OC • Samsung 970 Evo 1TB • Samsung 860 Evo 1TB • Cosair iCUE 465X RGB • Corsair RMx 750W (White)

 

Peripherals/Other:

ASUS VG27AQ • G PRO K/DA • G502 Hero K/DA • G733 K/DA • G840 K/DA • Oculus Quest 2 • Nintendo Switch (Rev. 2)

 

Laptop (Dell XPS 13):

Intel Core i7-1195G7 • Intel Iris Xe Graphics • 16GB LPDDR4x 4267MHz • 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD • 13.4" OLED 3.5K InfinityEdge Display (3456x2160, 400nit, touch). 

 

Got any questions about my system or peripherals? Feel free to tag me (@bellabichon) and I'll be happy to give you my two cents. 

 

PSA: Posting a PCPartPicker list with no explanation isn't helpful for first-time builders :)

I'm just trying to figure out the lowest that somebody has achieved. I'm not currently underclocking my chip anymore.
