AMD Threadripper 1950X @ 3.80Ghz Help.

Hi guys, I have a question about overclocking the 1950X @ 3.80Ghz and what if its safe or not.

Motherboard: Asrock taichi X399 BIOS ver 3.90

AMD 1950X @ 3.80Ghz on Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3 dual-fan config using Noctua NT-H2 Thermal paste.

Core Voltage 1.2V

ideal temps 25c~30c

100% MAX Load temps 58c~60c

Rendering daily for hours with 3ds MAX V-Ray & Corona.

So far running fast & stably with zero issues but the question is when it comes to the CPU life cycle it should be fine & safe?

Thank you.

As long as the temps are fine, and yours are because it's rated for 68C, then you're good. Lifecycle wise, with the way AMD is going, you'll replace it due to improved performance long before it does from heat.

Thank you so much man, I don't think so that I'm going to replace it anytime soon as long as it's doing the job super fast!
