How to correctly overclock Ryzen 9 3900x

How to correctly overclock Ryzen 9 3900x? I just want to know the basics via using the CUSTOMIZE MODE for Dragon Center 2.0

When I use Extreme Performance it only goes up to 4200-4300mhz, I was wondering how to bump it up a little to 4500mhz as I know 4600mhz is the max for R9. What are the proper settings to use when I do customize mode?

Since Dragon Center Scenario mode doesn't seem to be that accurate anymore, I noticed when I go to balanced mode it doesnt go down to 3800mhz anymore, it stays on 4000+ but Silent mode still works, it drops to 2200mhz when I do silent mode, voltages also goes down.

I just wanted to learn how to bump frequency a little more to 4500ish. Please teach me. I also have CPU Z

Ouch...   That is a terrible board...  Horrible VRM design and I highly doubt you will get an kind of OC.

Watch some videos about it and you may want to cry
