HELP abou Overclocking Ryzen 5 2600

Hello guys.

 

I have two questions about overclocking Ryzen 5 2600.

 

1. How can I lower the voltage when the CPU is sitting  IDLE?

2. If the voltage is high but the temperature is low, will this still hurt the CPU?

 

Right now the CPU is at 4.1Ghz and 1.3125 Volts. Using the windows Power Plan, I was able to downclock the CPU when it's doing nothing, but the voltage stays the same. I am using MSI B450 Tomahawk and the overclock menu looks like this:

 

This isn't a screenshot from my end. Simply from the menu

Any suggestions are welcome.

 

Thank you in advance and I wish you happy Black Friday deals.

1: a voltage offset  + LLC or an adaptive voltage should do it

2: if the voltage is way too high the chip will just die. if you slam 2V into any modern CPU that chip will almost always die in seconds if not instantly. you seem to be well clear of the voltage roof though so you should be fine. the cooler you are the more voltage can be put through, thats why stuff on LN2 dosnt die instantly at voltages that would be iffy at best on any sort of sensible cooling

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

1. Usually done with a combination of P-states and offset voltage mode, but as far as I remember MSI AM4 boards do not have offset voltage. I guess that means you only get to adjust P-states and hope it works.

 

2. it will. That's why LN2 stuff needs to stay way below 0C rather than the same 70C as air cooled or liquid cooled (but of course lower clocked) silicon.

With Ryzen I believe you'll need to manually set p states

It can, but if it's only 1.3 v it won't be dangerous.

Thank you all. You all say that 1.3 is pretty good. To be perfectly clear in Aida 64 the CPU runs at 62-64 degrees and I am happy what that too. 

 

As for setting P-States... I have no idea what that is. How can I do it on my board.. if it's done through the board. @Jurrunio, @DocSwag

It really is fine though. 1.3 v is fine and at idle the difference in power is negligible
