    Should we never go above 3600 MHz on ram with any ryzen could then?

      Thanks J, I have the same board and felt like the setting were off but wasn't sure how to fine tune it or even what to look at!! No wonder my 3600x on idle was running so hot.

        I over locked my ram to 3500 from 3200 with 1.4v is it okay?

          Benchmark Test a 3700x/3800x on an x370 board vs x470 vs x570... (maybe an Asrock or Asus of the same version, like Taichi x370/x470 or the Crosshair Hero x370/470)

                I was really hoping Ryzen would hit 5ghz this time. People will still buy intel because it can't. Even if AMD at lower frequency is still faster.

                      so maybe my Seasonic 650W I just got isn't enough for the 3900X?!

                          Hmm okay I was afraid I was the only one with ~40°c cpu on idle, this calms me a bit.

                          Will the voltage be changed with patches or something that has to be done manually?

                              I wonder if leaving things on auto OC and trying to decrease voltage a little would net in an actual higher boost

                              secondly, what the difference between 3600 CL16 and 3600 CL14 with as tight timings as possible are

                              And lastly, if Water chillers have an actual use now, with Ryzen 3000 doing higher clocks with every few degrees less :-)

                              Btw, no individual core OC (or rather individual CCX), like you could do, in theory, with Intel?

                                  I wonder if the reading from Ryzen Master and HWiNFO show the same odd voltages or if it is a false reading at all and changing the voltages did anything OR nothing.

                                      I can run 4.4ghz on my 3900x but i need to use 1.425v and even then its not stable when i run cinebench. So i got my 3900x to 4.3 at 1.35v

                                            Amd dosent need to refine this 7nm process as the next cpus will be using euv and that in itself means 15% better power efficiency or 10% more performance as well as 20% increase to transistor density.

                                                  Yeah but that's because it's horribly optimised. My RX470 can barely run it at [email protected] settings and [email protected] which looks worse than San Andreas, Mafia and other almost 20 yo games.

                                                  So let me get this straith. If I dont want to play with memory/cpu manual overclocking for now, and want to use the pc in stock, all i need to do is set my memory to infinite fabric 1:1 ratio?
                                                  so lets say I have 3200Mhz memory and the infnite fabric is set to Auto or value such as 1200, 1500
                                                  all I need to do is set XMP and infinite fabric 1:1 with my memory so 3200Mhz=>means 1600

                                                    It's actually better to get the fabric clock as high as possible. But it usually caps out around 1800 unless you're really lucky. Robert from AMD confirmed on Reddit

I also don't know when your saying "your not going to see 4.6.." if you mean on average or max. Would be nice to see more of what your doing, your core clocks, temperatures and less face-time blabbering on - no offense.

Are we in a similar situation like before when it was "i7 is useless for gaming, i5 gets you very similar frame rates in almost every game". Also interesting to me is how 3800X does in comparison with it's same 105W TDP, smaller core count, higher base clock, but lower boost clock, especially considering multi threaded tasks like complex modern games (where gaming performance matters too) never seem to give you that max boost anyway.

Great video (btw if I hadn't watched one of your original Ryzen overclocking guides I'd of never known I needed to set my BIOS to actually get my memory to run at it's rated speed when I built my 2700x system!). Do you have any plans to compare over clocked counter parts to the previous generation for Ryzen to see how close they actually come to one another? I'd be curious to see if the performance gap remains the same or closes with both generations running at their fastest stable overclock.

I want to buy the 3900x for video encoding, I have decided on the Crosshair Hero VIII. Asus offers an overpriced formula version and the wifi version. Will the VRMs go so hot that my radiator fan won't be able to cool them? I'm building my fist liquid cooled PC using corsair hydro x, then upgrading to the 3900x. Please let me know how hot the VRMs get, thanks.
