I have it since 2012 and was always interested in Overclcocking it, but i never go it stable.
In the years trying to OC i solved many Problems like:
- Read the correct Core temperature from the DIE and not from the CPU package ^^
- The mounting of the cooler was wrong so i haven't had enough pressure
- Deliding the CPU and applying liquid metal
I was now finally able to get 4.4GHz stable mit no HW errors, no app or Game crashes, no Bluescreens and Prime95 running fine for hours with temps below 90 degree on max and i think it was like 86C average. One core feels badass and is almost always 10C degrees cooler than the others?
BUT it only works when the MOBO is using automatic offsetvoltage and he is bootsing the Volts to 1.46 sometimes.
I tried manually to get it stable with lower volts but i quit trying when i manually reached 1.295V with LLC at maximum i think it was.
I then just thought i don't care it is stable when he is doing it alone ...
I dont really care if it will break in the longrun because then i will switch to a new AM4 and Probably the r5 3600
So here is my question.
Am i just super unlucky with my silicone?
Even at stock settings its boosting its volts to like 1.17 where i read others had 4.5GHz OC with 1.21V and i am at 1.4 to get 4.4 ...
Should i try 4.5 with automatic Volts or would the board kill the CPU when trying to keep it stable and go above 1.5V ?
Maybe retry where 4.4 is stable wit manual fixed volts to see if 4.5 is possible manually?
Could OCing my RAM help? I have 1600.
Or do you have any other ideas?
