you are giving me hopes here because I would be more than OK with such an OC.

can you confirm what was your CPU production batch or at least when you bought it? also your sig is suggesting a B350 MB but the YT tube video description shows X370 being used, can you confirm that as well and if you are on latest BIOS?

without being a pain, maybe also your BIOS settings?

Thanks so much

AMD Specifies up to 4.2 ghz boost stock for the 3600. I'm not sure if I would consider +125 Mhz as "great" for an overclock. But that's just me.

That's a decent autoOC, when I enabled that I think only 2-3 of my cores reached 4.3ghz, have you tuned pbo to get that clockspeed?

My thoughts really. But i live in Japan and ordered from Amazon US in the past without similar issue

here they would charge for return on this CPU of course and i had to pay import duties so i would lose somehow $40 in the Operation so not an option.

I am starting to look for more detailed info about these early day batches like mine

Not completely sure now if that perception was because of tech reviewers not properly overclocking or the MB BIOS not being mature enough.

I read also that windows 10 scheduler update would have helped unleashing 3000series potential if thats really a thing?


What i would like to hear from people here are experiences with such early chips that would have gotten better over time.

At the end of the day its a good cpu base and a significant upgrade from my 1500x so i shouldnt be too much disappointed but i had prepated myself to significant OC with a 500series MB on the way and i dont want to give up just now

Extreme case i would sell the cpu here in Japan which i dont want to do yet, i take some more days thinking with you guys support

samgu Anyone with experience on the following error:

A fatal hardware error has occurred.
Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error
Processor APIC ID: 8

I am not OC’ing, PBO is off and XMP is on with profile 1 selected. The GPU is also stock.

The error occurred three times, all times I was playing Destiny 2. The highest temperature I got playing is 72 degrees on the CPU.

Any ideas? Thank you!

nolive721 Where i see this bit shaddy is that in the 2nd quarter availability was poor and price high but still the chip was selling so i would have expected 2019 production was consumed

Obviously i was wrong.

looks to me like the nice deal from last month was just to get rid of these old chips that maybe people were returning knowing they would be bad performer

I would not say shaddy commercal behavior from Amazon but..

What you guys think?
I don't know if you even have a return case there. They did send you a new 3600 sealed in the box. Unless the listing specifically said a certain revision number in the listing? There's no guarantee what you'll get when you buy new chips like this. They probably have had this on a shelf or in a box since the 3600 first launched. It's still a new chip just like you paid for. You can try and return it though.
