Keeping the voltage same, but dropping temps instantly gets you at least 0.1GHZ increace in all cores prime stable.
5 to 10c decreace in core temps can get you 0.1GHZ in FX and Ryzen CPUS
If you want to save money and get top perfomance and save time.
Just buy faster cpus.
OC dosen't do much, its more about the fun.
Below ambient you can only do up to 5c more than that it condensates and dies.
For xtreme epexct to replace motherboards every 1to 12 months. (My exprience with xtemere)
In the way past, I've experience some processors that prefer a warmer temp rather than cold or 0 and sub zero.
Ran into many many 754 chips that where cold bugged. Found a nice little Paris core that hit 3.2ghz though... diamond in the rough I suppose.
FX responds super very well to colder temps. The colder the better. There is no voltage limitation there and any overclock would help an FX Cpu.
Ryzen chips seem to Wall pretty hard in comparison to FX chips.
One thing that is true, lower the temps is always better.
Funny you mention just buy faster cpus..... I find that those get overclocked too. lol.
"Overcloking is about the passion, not about how much you clock
Overclocking is not about the pefromance gains, it is about the passion
Overclocking is about the Fun, Enjoyment and Passion"
Love your sig dude.
