ok so heres how i think you overclock. 

1 you cange the base clock speed 

2 you change the voltage.

I know im super wrong and theres probably more steps on how to overclock, and thats why i came here. How do i overclock my cpu? heres my setup

Thermals will be an issue too, so how about you just get the best frequency you can at like 1.3 volts? I think that's what you should be able to expect with that setup.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

No graphics chip is the same, so all will be different when it comes to overclocking, kind of like the unique snowflake thing. 

 

I think you have to increase the power limit too, because the card needs the power you're sending to it.

 

Also, get faster RAM. Ryzen needs faster RAM to perform well since it's design is directly correlated to RAM timings and speed

Most people change the multiplier, not the base clock.

This should help clear up the differences:

 

Usually you increase the multiplier until it's unstable, and then increase voltage slowly. As a general rule, stay away from 1.5v if possible, as that will more rapidly degrade your CPU.

ohhh shit is this why I got such an unstable OC on my GPU? I might've accidentally done base, not multiplier..... Now XOC won't open so I guess I won't know.
