Overclocking newbie overwhelmed by lots of sparse information

Since I couldn't really find a guide I felt comfortable with (explaining stuff througly), I decided starting a new thread.

My setup:
CPU: Ryzen 3800X
Cooler: Scythe Fuma 2
Mobo: Asus Prime X570-PRO
RAM: 2x Klevv Bolt-X 16GB 3200MHz
PSU: EVGA G2 750

Last time I've done any sort of OC'ing was back in 2009, when I had a Q9400. I was pretty overwhelmed when I saw a whole lot of new stuff while I was browsing the BIOS settings.

What I'm looking for is a way to have a non-fixed maximum clock of 4.3GHz all-core (so the CPU can idle at lower clocks while doing office/browsing/etc). How should I do it?

I've just lowered voltages since the CPU was getting pretty hot (my room is 36°C right now).

Here are my BIOS settings:

Spoiler!


Thanks!

route 1:
1) enable PBO and leave everything else alone
2) finished

route 2:
1) OC like basically every other platform that existed in the past decade
2) use offset or auto voltage and not fixed
3) finished

Right, lemme just find the FSB and NB VCC setting on the BIOS... oh wait.

CPU speed = base clock x multiplier.

call it base clock or FSB or HTT or BCLK or Fred, call it whatever you want, it does the same thing.

do you see a north bridge on your motherboard?

what guide did you read that you couldn't follow along to?

Set "Performance enhancer" to level 3. (This will get you more performance on stock)
You already got DOCP set for ram, leave everything else at stock.

That's my recommendation, ryzen doesn't overclock well all the hassle is not worth it default boost algorithm does excellent job, memory OC with the use of Ryzen Memory Calculator "Google it" might be fun if you're bored and have good RAM .

39x multiplier (light load):


42x multiplier (one Cinebench R15 pass):


Can I go for a lower Core VID for this?
