ryzen 3600 4.4 1.3v overclock

so, i was just dabbling something in overclocking. im not someone who does it normally. actually, my most recent attempt at overclocking using ryzen master made me do a windows reset because it corrupted my bios somehow.


anyway, now that is all behind me, i did some ryzen 3600 overclocking.


first i tried it at 4.3ghz like gamers nexus did, but i did it at 1.35v instead of their 1.4v. did a cinebench 2.0 run, and no crashing. then i did 4.4, and still no crashing.
so around this time i also was looking at hwinfo and it showed me that the voltage draw was never higher than 1.3, so i changed the voltage to 1.300 at 4.4ghz, did another run, and it ran nicely.

then i did a 4.5ghz OC, and after 2 or 3 seconds cinebench 2.0 crashed. by watching all the vids from jayztwocents, i thought that when your computer crashed, you had hit a limit, so cinebench crashing was new to me. i asked around, and appearently this said that my OC was unstable. so appearently 4.4 ghz on 1.300V was my max. temp is stable at around 70/71*C.


now i did some googling around, and it appears that 4.3ghz seems to be the max most people are able to achieve. since im doing 4.4, does that mean my cpu is having better...silicon? or whatever it is.


single core performance is 508 btw.

Seems you have a golden sample. Especially for the 3600.

But remember that your oc is only stable if it runs everything you want to run.

Cinebench alone is not a good validation for stability.


My 3700X hits 4.4 all-core too without ridiculous voltages, which is more than most people get.

(Seems the top for most is 4.3 all core)

Everything else runs perfectly but the game i play the most recently (Mordhau) is crashing constantly. So i reverted to stock.


Imo there is not much to be gained from OCing Ryzen apart from production workloads.

In gaming i didnt really get noticeably higher fps.

quitting the application but not the OS is a sign that it's right on the verge of instability. R20 isnt that stressful tho so it doesnt mean very much.
