I want to overclock a bit more my Ryzen 7 1700 which is currently at 3.6Ghz 1.1875V + 3066 Mhz CL14 1.35V RAM. I want to ask you how far I can push voltages to prevent VRM/MOBO damage? (CPU / SOC / RAM). I managed to reach 4.0Ghz with 1.41V but it's quite high I think. I dont want to destroy MOBO's VRM due to thermal damage.
I also want to mention that I have 140mm fan which is pretty close to the upper part of VRM, but the other VRM part cooling is not as good.
Is there any advantage by updating BIOS to current version? I have pretty old one, but I managed to reach 3266 Mhz RAM frequency on it. I consider update but I'm also afraid that it can ruin my RAM stability or something. What do you think?
Rest of my PC config:
R7 1700 3.6Ghz 1.1875V / SOC 1.0V
Corsair LPX 3066 Mhz CL14 1.35V
Corsair H150i PRO
Thank you in advance.
