also... Dont use the ryzen overclock tools, or any other software based overclocking.. Set your multiplier in the bios.. I have yet to see any software based overclocking tool that works consistently..
Do you have your power profile set to high performance in windows settings?
I'm not sure of the 1600, but my 1700 is at 1.35v at 3.9ghz and its very stable. I dont know the standard voltages for the 1600, I would guess its likely the same as the 1700..
I still would like to see your cpu temps in game if your overclocking with that little stock cooler.. I know your 1600 is just 6 cores so it should run cooler, but you also have a small cpu cooler, the stock cooler that came with my 1700 (which is the bigger Wraith cooler) was pretty much junk and wouldnt even handle the 1700 at 3.7ghz..
if you can see this link this is the one he brought G.Skill Trident Z 16GB Kit DDR4 4000MHz RAM - Ebuyer i don't use stock coolers i use corsair h60i liquid cooler for the cpu which stays around 55 degrees can you screenshot your bios so i could try similar settings to you please yes power profile set to high performance
I run a Ryzen 1700, msi b350 gaming pro carbon, my bios settings are simple.
I changed multiplier to 39
vcore voltage 1.35
turned amd cool&quiet off
turned axmp on
chose memory profile one..
made sure high performance power profile in windows was chosen..
Have you updated your bios?
yes my bios is F3 latest for gigabyte ax370 gaming K3 would you run me throiugh what to change on these pictures to 3.9ghz please sorry to be a pain my bios is a little different to the one you said
to start I would reset your bios to factory default settings..
cpu clock ratio---39
cpu v-core voltage 1.35
core performance boost-- i dont remember-- likely disabled with a manually set cpu clock ratio
heres a video doing pretty much exactly what you want to do.. Ryzen 1800x Overclocking Guide - Gigabyte X370 Gaming 5 Aorus Motherboard - YouTube
I wouldnt take the vcore voltage over 1.35 for the sake of longevity.. I actually would stop at 1.3 vcore with a clock ratio of 38 to start, then do your benchmarking and stresstesting, if that works go to 1.35v and 39clock ration and retest.. but i wouldnt go any higher than 1.35 vcore..
tried it its better i dont loose as many frames when i stream but i shouldn't be loosing any really i didn't with my 4790k
I use OBS also..
I'm streaming in 1080p- 6k bit rate in OBS and my ryzen 1700 streams great using nothing but cpu.. I'm also using a 1080 and 16gb of ddr4-3200@3200mhz..
Is your cpu running at 3.6 or 3.7ghz consistently or is it jumping around?
Are you using any kind of on screen display, like msi afterburner? If so, you might try turning that off and see if it gets any better.. I've seen complaints of the afterburner osd causing people problems..
