Boosts higher than my 5800x….starting to think my Mobo is the problem..

ID: hfyrip4

Could be your cooling

ID: hfyrokz

Never goes above 65 , NHD15s.

(Had the same setup for my 3700x, just upgraded two days ago)

ID: hfzebce

5800x runs stupid hot even with a good aio; I "downgraded" to the 5600x and now get 4.85Ghz all core in most games, never has trouble hitting 4.75Ghz AC even when pushed full tilt. (PBO enabled); never goes over 65c; 5800x would hit 90c easy at stock, with undervolting I got it to 4.65ghz around 80C max (240 aio)

ID: hfyz5f4

Might be. I’m running 9900 K at 5.2 couldn’t even run it at 4.9 with my shitty gigabyte board. I have had a phenomenal experiences overclocking with as rock

ID: hfyzlrz

I’ve got a cross hair 7. Supposedly super overbuilt. (Back when I bought it) the 3700x I had in it never hit advertised speeds. And now this 5800x won’t, and I don’t understand because apparently I have 25 degrees of easy clearance, no idea why my cpu being lazy.

ID: hfyzxg5

Gigabyte Aorus? Those are actually the best motherboards for overclocking I've heard lol The issue with me and others with those boards is the XMP doesn't like to be stable so you have to manually enter the timings for your RAM. My 9700k is 5.0@1.38V, but temps are around 70c max.

ID: hfz0uyt

Just play with negative curve optimizer and set PBO to disabled or motherboard.

ID: hfz16f6

My PBO options are : Enabled Auto Disabled Manual

I don’t what you guys mean when you say set to motherboard.

ID: hfzz4hf

Likely mobo. Had a customer who had a 5600x that was also killing it in the silicon lottery. But his motherboard wasn’t strong enough. I had to undervolt it to stop crashes.

ID: hg0kkvb

The higher end chips won't overclock higher, the power is given to the extra cores and threads, so there is not much room to put into overclocking. You will still get higher performance.

ID: hfzizme

Play with PBO but also Curve Optimizer

ID: hg02k19

What Motherboard?

ID: hg0pgdz


ID: hg0p9ur

Got 5800x. I am getting 4.85 max with PBO.

ID: hg12njj

Maybe its the bios. I had some incopatibility problems with that. Some mobos are prepared for 5000 series but the bios is not the newest

3 : Anonymous2021/10/09 13:33 ID: hfzadcc

Why are you checking your clock speed on task manager? It's not accurate at all. Use HWiNFO64.

ID: hfzaq7l

Because i didnt know hwinfo64 existed

ID: hg0i8fv

Will it auto boost to its max or is this overclocking?

Which games do you play? Can you record 1080p 60fps with OBS?

ID: hfz0xf6

You can even STREAM 1080p60 with it, it's pretty powerful for a 6 core 12 thread CPU.

Although you should generally leverage encoding duties to your graphics card most of the time unless you either have a weak card, or you're trying to push as many frames on it in-game.

ID: hg0nv53

I can stream most games at 1080p60 FPS and 5K bitrate with just a Ryzen 5 2600, it's not really that hard and the FPS loss depends on the game but so far I have streamed overwatch and RDR2 on this CPU and didn't notice any big performance difference.

ID: hg0v5hm

Alright, Overwatch is a game I like and I wanted to stream it sometime. I was also trying to figure out if I could stream Apex too but not with a Ryzen 5 but a Ryzen 7 3700x and an RX 570. Seems like it might be able to right?

ID: hfz0a0y

Right now playing bf2042 at 100fps med-high @1440p I have a 3060ti

ID: hfz4l1u

3060ti? Nice, I'm actually saving up for that and will get it next month. I already have a R7 3700x on the way

5 : Anonymous2021/10/09 11:12 ID: hfywwz4

Wow congrats. What kind of work are you doing, that you need every last bit of single-thread performance?

ID: hfyxglt

Just gaming (:

6 : Anonymous2021/10/09 11:22 ID: hfyxpbr

My 5600x oc has boosts to 4,8 and is oced to 4,6. Works good and cool.

7 : Anonymous2021/10/09 15:02 ID: hfzl6y4

I'd like to see if your OC can handle a Prime95 stress test.

Have you run one?

ID: hfzlvhs

No i havent yet

8 : Anonymous2021/10/09 10:21 ID: hfysypr

Is this with stock settings or PBO?

ID: hfyt1y0

Manual overclocking

ID: hfz7vqn

What voltage do u use to get 4,7.

I have a 5600X too and I get 4,8 @ 1,3V (Load Line Calibration is a horizontal line, so no voltage drop under load) Not prime95 stable but never had a crash anywhere else.

How to know if you got a good CPU?

10 : Anonymous2021/10/09 12:51 ID: hfz5x0s

My old 3600X was a waste of sand/silicone.

My 5800X is much better.

ID: hfz7vt4

I had a 3600X default clockspeeds were in the 4.0ghz-4.2ghz i tried overcloking but couldnt get more than 4.3ghz

ID: hfzbckp

Mine didn't even go That high LOL.

It was just Awful. It very rarely ever boosted as well as it was Meant to. Even with several cooling options (water and air) it was just trash silicone :

11 : Anonymous2021/10/09 17:27 ID: hg04ihk

My 5600x is also boosting to a good freq. I am happy with it.

How are you benchmarking it?

ID: hfyzzya

I used cpu-z benchmarking

13 : Anonymous2021/10/09 13:41 ID: hfzbchs

Mine is at 4.8 with 1.34v

14 : Anonymous2021/10/09 14:18 ID: hfzfpfc

Same. My 5800X is awesome and my 3900X was quite the dud; couldn't even get the max rated boost speeds.

15 : Anonymous2021/10/09 14:56 ID: hfzkey0

Enjoy man, I know how you're feeling. I currently have the most dud of a sample for a Ryzen 5 3600. If I put it under some heavy multithreading load, gaming or otherwise, it drops to 3.9. I can't even wish to see 4.0-4.2 or overlock it to some 4.6 Ghz like some mad lads here.

The Custom Ryzen OC utility (forgetting its official name) recommends 3.8 Ghz with undervolt, lmao.

16 : Anonymous2021/10/09 17:45 ID: hg070wz

From what I've seen, most 5600x CPU's can hit 4.7 Ghz or higher, I've got mine up at 4.8, haven't had any issues. Been considering fiddling with it more to see if I can get it closer to that 5 Ghz threshold.

17 : Anonymous2021/10/09 17:50 ID: hg07ot2

I got my Ryzen 5 3600x to boost up to 4.3ghz

18 : Anonymous2021/10/09 18:28 ID: hg0ctgc

I hit the silicon lottery with my 2600, pretty sure I hit the anti-lottery with my new 5600x. It runs insanely hot no matter what, under a 360mm AIO, and performance wise is getting mopped up by almost every other 5600x.

ID: hg0cw8w

What kinda temps are you getting?

19 : Anonymous2021/10/09 19:42 ID: hg0mtol

I tried running my 5600X at 4.7Ghz with PBO once and I got 5139 on CPUZ, why is your score lower?
Btw my normal score at 4.65Ghz is 5060 somewhere in that range, PBO enabled, -16 curve optimizer and nothing more.

20 : Anonymous2021/10/09 19:50 ID: hg0nsq5

I got a Ryzen 5 5600x, coming from a Ryzen 7 1800x and in CPU intensive games my FPS went from 45 fps to 110 fps in Hell Let Loose for example. Great CPU, can't even imagine the performance you're getting with that OC.

21 : Anonymous2021/10/09 21:47 ID: hg13t77

Also got very lucky with my 5600g, fresh install, standard bios settings 🙂

5.1 GHz Boost

23 : Anonymous2021/10/09 22:35 ID: hg19ulq

4.7 is average. What voltage?
