its oc for 4GHz
my Ryzen 5 2600X with Stock does 3130ish
it is decent. i got 3202 @4.1GHz. However, I think you can try to lower your voltage. 4.0 i can run at 1.15V, 4.1 @1.25V, 4.2 @1.325.
this is my score running 4x8GB
I cant bench @ 4ghz below 1.32.. gets 3/4 and resets.
unless im doing something wrong. i only changed the cpu volt. any other tweaks i should try ?
RAM is 3466CL16 with tight sub-timings - CL14 only runs when setting it after a warm-boot
RAM tweaking is an effective but also challenging method, you should back up your system first, because faulty memory can quickly kill Windows. Try DRAM Calculator for Ryzen. 3200 or 3400MHz is enough for zen+, i think timings has more effect on performance. to stabilize your RAM, try using Termination Block (Ohm) values: procODT and RTT, turn Gear Down Mode and Power Down Mode off. make sure you memtest86 your RAM for at least 4 runs (6 hours I think), so that you will not encounter BSOD.
Try disable C states and Cool n Quiet when benchmark.
In order to get higher benchmark score, if you are using MSI motherboard, you can tinker the settings in Advanced CPU Configuration-> Precision Boost Overdride and SoC current Optimization, set the value to 999 and 254. This will allow much higher current through your CPU, which is dangerous because Current kills your parts, not Voltage.
Finally, it may be your cooler. Personally, I do not want to see above 75C CPU during benchmark and 80C during stress test.
thanks for your reply, I am currently using gskill 2666 OC to 3k , im using an aftermarket cooler (hyperH411R) that vents out next to psu, with positive pressure in my case, my case is a corsair c70 with 2 intake fans and 1 exhaust fan on the top with fresh arctic silver 5, @ 4ghz idle is around 35-37*c - I dont like my CPU above 72c, with 100% fan during bench it peaks at around 69c... so further more, when dialing in a specific overclock its best to disable turbo? I mean whats it going to turbo to.. nothing? lol. thanks for your info on the ADVANCED CPU CONFIG i may fiddle with this a bit, i just updated my bios to v50a . i have a ax370 k7 gigabyte... dual bios is annoying sometimes when oc's fail and it switches bios on you =(
next upgrade will be to switch out this ram and go with highest freq avail.
currently what is the max ram freq for 5th gen ryzen after bios updates etc.?
