    ryzen 2600 right overclock setting

    discordstar

      I want to overclock my Ryzen 2600 to at least 4.0Ghz.

      But the thing is, i don't know if that's safe to do, as my knowlegde on about it is limited?

      What i do know is not to go overboard and what for the heat.

       

      So i wanted to ask you all, who might have more experience in the matter.

      How high can i overclock with just the stock cooler (i heard its pretty decent).

       

      Some info you might need:

      - Asus Prime B350-Plus

      - Radeon RX 580

          discordstar, please see here.  Please DL, install, run Ryzen Master and post a screenshot.  It will give you the correct temperature to compare to the maximum.  Specifications:

          EDIT: I replied 24 hours ago but because I included a link to an external website it was reviewed by a moderator which delays the actual posting for minutes to hours and in this case days.  Sorry, I try to avoid links for that purpose.  Please use ONLY Ryzen Master to measure temperatures.

              why only use it to check the temp?

              currently i have around 3.7 - 3.8Ghz.

               

              i tried out gamer mode, but then reset back.

              i'm not sure, but i remember it being under 3.4Ghz but its stays between 3.4-3.9.

              is this normal? i'm still new to the world of pc. what is the standard Ghz speed in this case?

              How high you can go on the stock cooler is dependent on the ambient temperature, airflow, and voltage you have to use. As long as you don't exceed 85*C for an extended period of time (Tmax is 95*C but you don't want to run around it too close for too long), and don't use voltage too high (I wouldn't exceed 1.4v) then you can't do any damage.
