" sup guys look how 4.2 GHz beats the 11500" People on reddit : damn your 3600 sucks.

What's wrong with people, did he ever say look how good my 3600 is?

That dude is defending you.

ID: habakq4

That makes no sense.

ID: habuj6q

Honestly, just a bunch of meatheads who are quick to pounce on someone's results without sharing their own.

I guarantee I could outperform some of their 4.30GHz / 4.40GHz overclocks with mine set below theirs. A lot of them aren't applying enough voltage for their cores to be completely effective.

I actually daily my 3600 at 4.4ghz 1.2375v, I use a chesp vetroo v5 with it. I can get stable 4.45, unstable 4.5 if I take the voltage much higher

ID: hac9hrn

What do you bench at with CPU-Z?

ID: hac9pak

I actually haven't tested recently, I'm quarantined at my mom's with covid and my pc is at my dad's where I usually stay

ID: hacghx5

What are your temps? Is safe to run 24/7 around 70ºC?

ID: hacgqj0

I usually sit under 60C during gaming fron the bottleneck produced by my rx 570, I believe under cinebench r23 the max I got was 83C stressing all the cores?

Quality posts, reason why I come here

ID: hac25nh

It's also why I post here alongside my original post at

. The level of knowledge is vastly different to say the least.

I mean, on the other hand, here's an i7-4790K that beats your single-core score. CPU-Z results are somewhat strange, in general.

ID: habkrsj

Intel CPU's have wicked strong performance when it comes to single cores. I wouldn't be shocked if an overclocked 3770K could score higher than the 3600 at default.

Do you need good cooling for this?

ID: hab8oew

I use a 120mm AIO, but an aftermarket air cooler would work just as good.

ID: hac5i7w

i also have an r5 3600 running at 4.2 and im just using an ryzen wraith prism cooler lol

How often do you run CPU-Z benchmark to complete any of your daily tasks?

I'm just saying among all other benchmarks CPU-Z's is probably the least useful. Also, no one knows what they are computing/measuring.

ID: habw4rt

It's more of a hobby for me than anything right now, gives me something to do, and I find it interesting.

Not bad. Not bad at all. 1.28 is maximum, right?

ID: habcbk4

1.288v is the CPU core SFI2 TFN voltage used while under load. Idle voltage is 1.304v.

What’s the point of this? That you need to overclock to beat a locked cpu?

ID: habta9f

Yes, the two almost three year old Ryzen 3600 needs an overclock to beat one of the better performing and newer locked CPU's found in Intel's latest generation.

ID: habzsqq

the two almost three year old Ryzen 3600 Release date July 7, 2019

10 : Anonymous2021/08/25 16:00 ID: hab1vg8

Did you test stability with prime95?

Even if stable, that's a bad sample.

ID: habale8

You must not be aware of the some of the early batch chips like mine, I've even seen people with worse chips and unable to get 4.20GHz with 1.32v.

ID: habgcz9

I am aware of those, but that's still a pretty bad sample

11 : Anonymous2021/08/25 20:08 ID: hac3308

lol not even close in single thread

12 : Anonymous2021/08/25 20:54 ID: haca2x3

How many watts is it drawing btw? Cool results, keep at it :P.

ID: hacb7b7

~20W at idle

~25W while browsing the web

~45W while gaming

~70W while benchmarking with CPU-Z

ID: hacbprx

I mean not too bad considering my GTX 1070 was drawing 30W alone at idle because I'm running three displays. Was able to use Nvidia Inspector to get this down to 10W eventually though.

13 : Anonymous2021/08/25 16:22 ID: hab54df

4.2ghz at 1.28 vcore? That's dogshit for a late batch 3600

ID: hab95k0

It's an early batch chip, just getting 4.20GHz running with less than 1.3v was a task on its own.

Such as this guy who can't hit 4.20GHz even with 1.4v.

ID: habhtay

Still awful for early batch. And for the guy who can't do 4.2 at 1.4v that's literally a broken chip if it's not hitting 4.2 at all.

Have you tried pbo? Might get better benches than your manual OC.

14 : Anonymous2021/08/25 21:50 ID: haci5kk

Got through my 1st official year 0 issues on my 5700xt and 3600 but I think I wanna OC my 3600. Where do I begin? I’d like to see better performance on pcs3 and warhammer 2 I have an ssd

ID: hacjnxt

Outside of benchmarking, you're not really going to notice any increase in performance from overclocking the R5 3600. You should focus your time on overclocking your RAM, and tightening the sub timings as the Ryzen series benefits the most from RAM overclocks.

15 : Anonymous2021/08/25 21:54 ID: hacisxo

Question. What do you have to do to get such a high single thread score? I'm using Ryzen Master and CPU-Z and I cannot get single thread over 100. Is that normal?

ID: hacjg2j

The single thread score should at least be 488 at default speeds, the single thread score should slightly increase along side your multi thread score when increasing the core multiplier.

I recommend using the BIOS to manually overclock your CPU, Ryzen Master isn't as accurate as the BIOS is.

ID: hacjk6j

Huh. My CPU, according to CPU - Z is slower in single threaded performance than literally everything else ever. I'll look at the BIOS for overclocking and get rid of Ryzen Master.
