Damn I am jealous. My launch week 3600 can't even do 4.0 Ghz @1.35ID: gqvwmtmID: gqvwpk1
Yeah I paid 240 for it too, but it does anything I want it to do so fast that I don't feel like blaming shitID: gqw2flb
mine is from launch too and i get 4,3 -4,375ID: gqw3utv
Same man, but still can run VR no problem with my 2080
Is this a newish 3600?
Mine does 4.5@ 1.28v as well. Its from May 2020, so I'm thinking these are just 3600XT that didn't make the binning.ID: gqvumv7
What cooling do you use for it?ID: gqvwif1
Noctua nh-d14 with a single fan in the middle. I've had this cooler since 2010, best PC investment I've made.ID: gqvyxwk
Using the same settings, I just bought a wraith prism for my 3600 for dirt cheap and it never reaches 70C while gaming (only in stress test), but it never runs at max speedID: gqw8n28
Yes, bought it on February 18th (my birthday)ID: gqvyt9v
Where can you check the production date? I have a chip where I can do the same, and I just bought it as new. Actually, I might even be able to go lower in voltage I just never tried lol
thats a good ass overclock. which method did you useID: gqwd885
What's your voltage? My 3600 won't go past 4.1...ID: gqvyakc
That's incredibly unlucky then. When I built my pc last year I followed Techsource's guide. Somewhere around the end he shows how to OC a 3600 to a stable 4.3 overclock. It was very easy and worked without problemsID: gqvzs2o
I have my 3600 at 4.3GHzID: gqxjc0r
Hm, I was using my BIOS instead of the AMD tool to do it, maybe I'll give it a shot thanksID: gqwj1ms
Overclocking is always a case of figuring out what your CPU can achieve within the FIT voltage, so 4.3 won't be achievable for everyone (at least not without degradation).
Hello, Is it safe to use it with 1.3V 24/7 because somewhere I read safe voltages are all below 1.3V?
Edit: What is your motherboard? What values have you set in your BIOS?
Edit 2: I guess my 3600 is one of the worse ones because it runs OC at 1.275V at 4.2GHz. And I can't go up to 4.3GHz below 1.325V which is sad imho because 4.4GHz is a myth for me at this point.ID: gqw3bea
The way people tend to find their ideal 24/7 voltage is with the FIT test. Basically, turn on PB and PBO and max out all the sliders, then run Prime95 for a few minutes to let shit stabilise. Whatever your chip is using under those circumstances should be perfectly safe forever with a manual OC. For me, that was around 1.36v.ID: gqvw1xc
There is no official word from AMD as to what safe voltage is for Zen 2. For most people, you're better off using PBO. If you're going to manually overclock, set a voltage below 1.3V, as anything above will most likely degrade your CPU quickly. My OC on a Ryzen 5 3600 is 4.1GHz@1.25VID: gqvxj6f
I thought the max temps listed here are enough, still, lower is better.
PBO runs my 3600 at 1,42V... Should I be concerned?
EDIT: Under load it is more like 1,33-1,34V
To check what your cpu can take and your best option, Clocktuner For Ryzen works very well. managed to pull off a email@example.comV for my 3600.
yeah. mines also in the same boat but it does its job fine so i cant complain too much
