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.
- quality of image – same
- render speed – same
- cost – not same.
While AMD has been famous for a long time for it’s GPU grunt for mining,,, we users want a video card that can play.
Cost per frame AMD still wins hands down.
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.
Works fine and very fast. Comment below if you have problems
