First Attempt/Impressions with OC on R9 3900x
Decided to spend a few minutes tinkering with my 3900x tonight.
Just wanted to get 4.2Ghz all core. Kept chipping away at the voltage and figured I'd hold off here at 1.225v in bios. Haven't seen a BSOD or freeze yet so there may be more left in it.
Here are my results so far.
This is under a Noctua NH-D15 and running in a MSI MPG X570 Ggaming Pro Carbon WIFI. I also ran Realbench 2.54 (probably needs updated) for about 5 minutes, that's what got me to the 73C.
The chip came out of the box running 1.45-1.48v with the stock boost profile, which I know is dynamic and per core. Seems strange that I'm solid at 4.2Ghz all core with only 1.225v.
I'm new to Ryzen OCing, I came form an i7 5960x. Interestingly it ran a stable 4.2Ghz all core at around the same voltage lol.
Thoughts / Suggestions?
