Overclocking when to know it’s stable.

Go to solution Solved by Glennieboyyy007,

i overclocked my cpu by thinking i'd like to hit as high as possible with this voltage or temp limit. i choose that i'd like to keep it under 80 degrees celcius and at a max of 1.3V

luckily i hit 5Ghz with 1.3V. ran a stresstest for 12 hours and still stable, but just to be sure i lowered it to 4.8Ghz and 1.28V.

 

what i want to say is, try to see how much it can handle without to high temps or to much voltage, then just lower everything a tad. like .2Ghz and .02V

Hi guys I just got a 2700x and I’m testing my Overclocking with my processor. My motherboard is a ASUS Crosshair hero 7 with WiFi. I’m wondering once I find the voltage and clock that is unstable with my computer how much lower do I have to go in clock speed and keep that same voltage. For example if I find 4.1gzh at 1.25 volts is no longer stable and I want to keep the 1.25 volts how much lower clock speed do I have to go to know it’s stable. I was thinking dropping the clocks to 4.0gzh or is 150mzh less better at 39.50ghz to  guarantee its stable

I would drop it to 4.0GHz, stress test it again and if it's unstable drop by another 100MHz. Once it's stable up it by 50MHz and see where the limit is.

 

(On another note, I haven't seen how Ryzen+ performs in overclocking but considering Ryzen 1 averages I am unsure you can hit 4GHz with 1.25v).

Oh yeah definitely. I’m Overclocking it and stress testing it right now actually. When I went from 4.1gzh at 1.16250 volts it crashed after stress test. Than tried 40.75ghz at the same voltage and it lasted through almost all the stress tests but failed once I ran two at once prime95 and realbench benchmarks. Now I’m testing it at 40.50 and no crashes after 20min but since I know it crashed with .25 more I’m probobly going with 39.50ghx at 1.16250. Just want to be able to have low temps and a decent clock speed

Just want to be able to have low temps and a decent clock speed and 100mhz to 125mhz less should be enough to keep it stable than right?

Use it for a week without BSODs. I've had overclocks pass stress tests but end up being unstable in regular usage.
