Ryzen 5 2600X overclock (simple)

As new BIOS roll out then…

[UPDATE] now only do CPU Vcore offset – 0.0750 and do not use PBO on this CPU , you can break 3000 in Cinebench.

This is a fairly easy one. The Ryzen 5 2600X does not have any real overclock headroom. However, if you notice your clocks never even reaching the advertised 4.2Ghz clocks then this is for you.

In your BIOS, probably under CPU overclocking, set CPU offset voltage of -0.1000V . That’s right, MINUS 0.1000v

Now you should see the CPU regularly boosting up to 4.3Ghz and your benchmarks should be improved.


AMD Ryzen cpu shows hotter than AMD FX

Yeh, I was fazed by FX showing lower than room temps, Ryzen now seems to show more accurate, They are not hotter, just more honest. 74C on full load, with a liquid cooler, after many hours, is much more realistic. This much grunt, at this price, and cool; is a winner.

AMD Ryzen pretty much rules right now for pure grunt and low temps.
