You are going to want to upgrade your cooling, the H60 is a nice base unit, but it's just a 120x120x25, and out of its class when you're talking about an 8 core 16 thread chip. Ryzen has a higher thermal maximum than Bulldozer based chips, but a lower temperature aids overclocking. Other than that overclocking is the same as any other, up the multiplier until it's unstable, add voltage until it is stable, and repeat until you get to the point of diminishing returns.

Oh 1600, thought it said 1800, been a long day at work.. Still the same applies, you're going to want at least the H80i with double fans, the extra thickness improves cooling ability quite a bit. Ideally, if your case can fit it, the H105 or H110, they're 240mm, much larger surface area for excellent cooling capacity even at low fan speeds.

Those voltage options are for extreme overclockers, the people who want to squeeze out every last megahertz. The only one you really need to adjust is CPU VCore, and you're not going to want to go much over 1.4v. Most people are able to get around 3900mhz at 1.375v, and 4ghz at 1.4v. 4-4.1ghz is as high as Ryzen based architecture chips will go with all cores, even the new Threadripper chips top out there. Most suspect it is the chip's internal architecture instead of the cores themselves. Also, your RAM is quite slow, and Ryzen chips perform better with faster memory speeds.

im guessing its mainly optimization with ryzen on some games that are bugging me like 70 to 80 fps on ultra bf1 and star wars battlefront 105/110 guess need to wait for patches?

Re: Ryzen 1600 / Gigabyte AX370 Gaming K3 Overclock help please?

3.6ghz@1.332v on all cores might not be doing you any favors in games. The R5 1600 has a base clock of 3.2ghz and boosts to 3.6ghz, with proper cooling and core boost enabled you should run 3.4ghz base and 3.7ghz boost at all times without any overclocking.  Are you using offset or manual voltage to OC? Are you using LLC? If you are getting 70-80 FPS in BF1 with a gtx 1080 g1 windforce oc something is not right even with the 2133 RAM. Try CPU-Z and confirm you are running at 3.6ghz  in Windows 10 on all cores when you overclock. What FPS do you get at stock settings on CPU?

TY, I was curious about CPU-Z to make sure you are running at your set clock after overclocking. Overclock.net has a Gigabyte AX370 Gaming K3 discussion thread with over 100 pages of AX370 content. You might have to search the thread a little for the information you are looking for about overclocking or optimizing your setup.
