can you overclock a ryzen 5 2600 on a ASRock B450M-HDV R4.0

Okay so I have a ryzen 2600 and an ASRock B450M-HDV R4.0 And before I destroy my cpu or motherboard I was wondering if I can over lock my cpu safety (if you have a video that can help me please fell free to link)

The board seems...meh. I can't say too much about it but with a board like that I reccomend a light OC at worst, and no OC at best. As for a vid, if you're determined to do it then most OC'ing videos, by basically anybody on the front page of youtube results for: 'Overclocking with Ryzen 2000' Should be fine but make sure that the video isn't fked up or something.

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

Yes, you can. However, I would advise against it unless you have two things:

  1. Decent airflow around the VRM (the metal heatsinks on the motherboard).
  2. A good CPU cooler.

The first is usually as simple as adding a case fan (the ones that come pre-installed usually aren't enough), and the second by getting a new CPU heatsink, as the stock one is really only made for stock speeds.

 

Also keep in mind that there isn't a lot of headroom on the 2600, or with Ryzen in general. You can probably increase it 200MHz though.

Make sure to quote or tag me (@JoostinOnline) or I won't see your response!

I’ve got 5 fans all at 1200rpm and a decent airflow case I have the Thermaltake Versa N27 Mid Tower Case

Cool I might lightly over lock it then or maybe swap out my motherboard

If I change out my motherboard do u think I can get away with overclocking on a MSI B450M PRO-M2 MAX

The motherboard is decent but I still don't reccomend oc'ing too much.

Yeah I don’t plan on heavy oc’ing just moderate nothing too much

You can get the 2600 to somewhere around 4.0 to 4.2 Ghz depending on your Chip and Board. 
Do it slowly, test for stability, increase voltage slowly , stay below 1.4V maybe even below 1.38V to ensure longer life of the CPU.
