What cooler you used on your OCed Ryzen 3 CPU?

    No I don't. Just experimenting. :p

    Oh well, it was fun.

    To support the 2200g it should meet the power requirements set by AMD. Your board supports the Ryzen 7 2700X which is 105w cpu, plus a little added headroom, versus your 2200g which is only 65w, so you have quite a lot of headroom power wise for overclocking. You might find that the cpu voltages jumps up pretty high under load, do the cpu-z stress test and tell me what the cpu clocks to and what voltage it is running during the test.

    Funny, it doesn't show them while stress testing.

    You need to open cpu-z twice, one on the stress test and the other on the cpu tab ;)

    I read something interesting. It says that the program AMD Ryzen Master will set the Vcore voltage to 1.3v before you do anything with OCing.

    Using it to see results is moot. CPUz speaks the truth.

    I never trusted Ryzen Master. Granted I used it basically on launch day and it was giving me weird quirks so I just use BIOS.

    I'm new to this so I'm learning. :p

    I always take what programs report with a pinch of salt, I trust the bios over all.

    HWInfo is generally regarded as the best temp/hardware monitor. I used to use HWMonitor but it's gotten unreliable and HWInfo has so many more features and overall control.

    I like to use coretemp for temperature monitoring, but HWinfo is pretty sweet.

    I have HWinfo and I'm leaning more to it.

    I'm back to 3.7 clocked and locked. Vcore is 1.4v but the temps' been great. Alarm set at 60c and never rang so I'm good.

    Performance is increased pretty good and I can live with it.

    You could probably click the multi one or two more at that voltage, most of the Ryzen don't have an issue getting to 3.8 at least.

    I'd just be familiar with how to clear CMOS for when it hard locks when overclocking too high.

    Also, you would get a noticeable amount of additional graphics performance by adding another stick of RAM.

    You're right. Bumped it to 3.8 Ghz and the Vcore is pretty much the same. Temps at 35c at idle. No alarm sounded yet.

    I think I ran 3.8GHz at stock voltage on my 1700 and I'm pushing way more cores/threads. Ryzen is super easy to get to 3.8GHz but it's when you get near or past 4.0GHz that you really gotta crank the voltage. Kinda happens all at once. Most Ryzen chips from what I've seen on boards across the internet seem to indicate you can usually undervolt at stock clocks or use stock voltage at a higher frequency easily.

    1.4v still sounds way too high to me. I would think you could do 1.35 pretty easily at 3.8GHz ish, pretty sure I was a lower voltage than that at those speeds.

    I like this^^

    The IGPU also loves ram speed, there are huge gains to be had by overclocking your ram, even at the cost of higher latencies, but just overclock clock one thing at a time, then if you have problems you will know what the cause is. I see you have Ballistic Sport ram, which model number?

    I'm sure you can overclock this, I'd guess it would easily passed the 3000mhz mark and further if you messed with the timings. I have many ddr4 sticks in the low 2000mhz range and all so far have made it past the 3000mhz mark, even my cheapo crucial ddr4 2x 16gb 2133mhz ram is running at 3000mhz.

    If you bought a second stick and overclocked the ram past 3000mhz, you would likely see a large bump in gaming performance. I build a 2200g system for a friend recently, I can't remember exactly what ram he had, it was slower ram, but I was able to increase his gaming benchmark results by about 50% by overclocking it. You could run some graphics benchmarks, if you don't have any there are many free ones, overclock the ram and re-benchmark to see the performance increases.

    I'm fine with just the CPU OC.
