Need help overclocking

Go to solution Solved by Shimejii,

Most ryzen chips you pretty much cant OC very much, besides PBO and voltage tuning, there is not much you can do to the CPU itself. 2600x was pretty much limited to 4.0 ghz, rarely able to do a all core to 4.1 to 4.2.

Hi I have a ryzen 5 2600x paired with a asus b450m plus gaming motherboard yet I cant seem to figure out how to oc with it any help would be much appreciated

In the BIOS, you'd go to the AI tuner or AI overclock menu (whatever it is named on this particular board) and you'd change the clock speed settings and voltage in there.


As @Shimejii mentioned, if PBO is enabled the CPU is probably near its fullest potential. Although, I've noticed the setting is often rather buried in some esoteric menus. 

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
