Hey guys. Im new here, can you guys help me?
I have a new ryzen 2600x paired with corsair vengeance led 3200mhz (2x8gb) and a x370 gaming k5 board from aorus.
I don't understand much about overclocking. I've bought this processor and paired with a artic freezer 33 esports one, for lower temps because this chip doesn't need to be overclocked and performs better in low temps.
The thing is I've noticed that the core voltage is a bit high (1.4v+) and fluctuates alot together with temps. While I write this, according to cpu z its having speed up to 4.25ghz and voltage between 0.804v and 1.5v. Is this normal? I can trie to set the cpu voltage to -0.20 or -0.40 does this affect the performance? I saw something about ryzen power plan and the minimum cpu usage should I leave it to 90% or lower?
Also, about the ram. My board doesn't support 3200mhz unless is OC so I trie that. All I did was to put the speed to 3200, change the voltage to 1.35v and I saw this timings in a forum and give it a trie: 16-16-18-18-36. It's working fine.
I can't enable xmp because my pc keeps crashing but If i do it manually it works. Is this fine? If I want to up the speed I just do it and If it crashes I up the voltage (max 1.5v lets say) correct?
I just want to be sure if it's all fine. Thank you very much!
