Ryzen 5 3600x : AMD Ryzen Master tells it is overclocked

Hello everyone.


I have recently build a setup with a Ryzen 5 3600X CPU. After downloading and launching Ryzen Master, the software tells me the CPU clock speed has a maximum value of 4400Mhz (compared to its based clock speed 3800Mhz).

I did not configure anything in the BIOS to overclock it and I did not modified anything in Ryzen Master (I just launched it and it's on the "Standard Mode").

On the BIOS, it is set to run at 3.8 Ghz.

When I let Ryzen Master open and monitor the value, I can sometimes see it running above the 3.8Ghz base clock value. So it does run like it is overcloked.


I have a few questions :

- is it normal for it to run at its maximum overclocking value ?

- on the long run, can it have negative effects on the processor ? (I run on stock cooler - a AMD Wraith Spire)

- is there anything I can do configure so its maximum clock speed is the base clock value 3.8 Ghz ?


Full setup :

- CPU : Ryzen 5 3600X

- MOBO : MSI x570 Gaming Edge Wifi

GPU : MSI Gaming X Trio (RTX 2070 Super)



Thanks a lot in advance if you answer to the question.
