Guys, coming from multiple Intel builds over the years and a stringent rule that stable is only if passes all of Intel Burn Test levels. Normally this will increase cpu temps about 20C, but previous i5 and i7s all pass with same or minor voltage bump. On my Ryzen 1700, I can pass every other benchmark (realbench, prime, etc.) at 3900mhz and about 1.3875v LLC3. 3.9 is my wall basically. And can even pass the quick IBT standard, However to pass IBT at Maximum it requires a downclock to 3850mhz and a large increase in volts to about 1.43v. So my question is IBT puts an ungodly demand on a cpu, but Intel chips always pass it at same voltage or close and at same speed. This Ryzen needs to lower clock 50mhz and increase volts about .05! So is this test valid or am I being too hard on what I consider 100% stability? For a daily driver where all important information is stored and used, does Ryzen need to pass IBT at maximum or is there something that is causing this test to not work with Ryzen or be brutal on it, since no real world scenario will ever be like IBT maximum. Thanks
P.S. Do you think upgrading to an 1800x would solve this problem or get me 4ghz stable? I still have time to return this chip, it just seems that putting 1.43v into it to get 3.85Ghz is really a bad idea for 24/7/365.
