Ryzen 3000 Safe Voltages and Degradation

I guess you know where this is going...


So, I finally moved to a 3800x build! I love it, it is awesome. Tuned 3800mhz RAM at 1:1:1 ratio, beautiful! I also managed to tune all cores to 4.425ghz @1.325V. I’m using a Noctua NH-u14s with two fans. Temps running CB20 loop or AIDA stress are very manageable not hitting over 76C at full load. When gaming it does not reach those temps. Performance is fantastic.


Ok, so according to guidelines, 1.35v is MAX for manual core tuning/OC. But I am seeing people all over the forums saying that even 1.325v is not safe and degrades the chip. Is this true?

I have tried looking for a formal AMD post on the matter but haven’t found any. I am sorry if this has been discussed before, but it’s hard for me to gauge if those people are being genuine or just trolling.. 


Thank you all in advance


EDIT: Added SS of Ryzen Master with current settings.
