Greetings, I'm hoping some kind folk here may be able to assist me in getting my setup in 'perfect' working order.
I'm old//new to overclocking(been well over a decade out of the tech game) and have spent the past month re-learning and playing around with my system looking to squeeze out a bit more performance ( mainly for gaming ) and I've made gains but there's more to be had.
Ryzen 5 2600 w/ Corsair H60 AIO cooler ( Slight [email protected]
but seems to run around 3.93-92 most of the time on 1.3-1.35V)
ASUS PRIME B450M-A
XFX RX 580 4gb
2x8gb Corsair LPX [email protected]
450watt 80+ bronze cert. EVGA 450 BV P-supply
4x casefans sucking in and 1 out(random mix of fans because thats what I had to work with)
Now it took a few weeks for me to sort out the ram issues and post stable beyond 2666-2933mhz, turns out the even tho the SKU's were same on the ram they had different binned chips and a set refuses to post at spec'd ratings so once those were removed I've pushed to 3400 mhz on stock volt(1.35) and timings (16-17-17-35).
Spent quite a bit of time researching AMD's 'infinity fabric' and I still don't know much more than when I started, all looks like wizardry to me even tho on paper it makes sense.
So my questions are, knowing that all these clocks and frequencies must be in some sort of alignment for perfect performance, how and where should I make changes to bring all of these things together? What voltages are unsafe for 24/7 use on this board and chipset?
Any input is appreciated, also those telling me the horrible limitations of my current setup. Not looking to do any crazy overclocking just get all the performance possible while I save and wait to piece-meal together an upgraded system over the next year.
