Overclocking ryzen 7 2700x

I wanted to ask if it is possible to overclock ryzen 7 2700x to 4.2 ghz with the stock cooler without having any temp issues.

Nope, not possible. Stock cooler is good for 4 to 4.1 at the best of times

At least in good and not unsafe temperatures, so if you want to have a unstable CPU that will probably die in 3-4 years, you can totally go for it, but I wouldn't recommend it.

we're talking running past AMD's thermal throttle point so I dont think it can last the full 3 years

If you're lucky, you might ?

So how far you think i can push it with the stock cooler?

I wasn't able to get up to 4.2GHz with the stock cooler.  I was able to get close, but that wasn't pushing anything very taxing.  I wouldn't try for more than 4.1GHz and that might be too high with AVX workloads and summer month ambient temps.

There literally is no reason to mess with the multiplier on a 2700x, the boosting system works so well as is. If you really want to overclock, push the bclk a bit higher without touching the multiplier. (This will also change your ram speed btw)

Well i am not so much on these things so what do you mean my ram speed will change ?

Why do you need 4.2ghz? Ryzen has steep voltage increments at high clocks.

if you really need 4.2ghz on stock cooler , it should still be fine & try not to stress the cpu alot.

You ram clock is bclk (normally 100) times your multiplier times reference clock. So lets say your using 2933mhz with a bclk of 100. Your multiplier would be 22 and your reference clock would be at 1.33. But if you raised the bclk to 105 using the equation on bclk x multiplier x ref clock (105x22x1.33) you would get the speed of 3080mhz instead of 2933. So just think of bclk overclocking as a percentage. Rasing it by 2 would be a 2% overclock on ram, cpu and a few other things.

I see thanks for the info
