Ok then, why some people on reviews/gaming footage videos even famous got it boosting on 3725 and even more with worse temperatures
Power saving features off? BIOS and Windows.

Quick question;

What is the highest stable memory speed that Zen+, but especially 2600X can do for daily use?
Considering most mobos have 3466 as the top end although I have seen Asrock steel mobo with 3533 support lately.

I have 3733 ram on my system now, but content for the time being with 3466 from it. My MSI board only support up to 3466.

Thanks in advance. :)

3rd gen can work with memory way over 4000MHz.

Yeah, that's what some vendors sites are showing with their B450 platforms & 3000 series.

Around the net, it seems 3600 is the effective limit for 1st & 2nd gen Ryzen, but not sure if that is a hard limit or result of immature bios & chipset drivers.

3600MHz is acclaimed as best buy because after 3777MHz (which probably doesn't even exist) i is highest frequency with 1:1 divider, higher than that divider goes up and you need RAM way higher than 4000MHz to avoid pitfall of high latency. I had my 3600 RAM running at Cl16 even with 2700x so it's not a beg deal anyway.

Afaik they didn't touch anything except XMP
What are you using to monitor clocks and temps? If not HWINFO, then try that and close the other apps. Run HWINFO in the BG while gaming and check after about 30 minutes of game. Make sure it shows max clocks.

Proud owner of an oced Phenom II X4, I am ready to invest on a new system with:
- Ryzen 3600x
- Gigabyte Aorus Elite x570
- Team Dark 3200mhz 16gb Cl14/15 or other equivalent Ram with Samsung bdies

Only question is from where to buy these items online.
I am looking for an EU online shop, except Amazon Uk where there are no available ram dimms at low prices (around 120pounds).

Overclockers.co.uk does have all items, but the total is at 592£, including quite high shipping cost at 39£ to Cyprus.

Any other proposals?

Scan UK seems to have all you are looking for except that brand of RAM and shipping cost is about the same. Any reason you are going for the 3600X and not the 3600?

The difference is around 30pounds.
Everyone is recommending the fan cooler of the X version. Anyway the X cooler is better than the standard 3600 cooler, so since I plan to OC the cpu, I may save some money and keep the X cooler.
Also the X by default is having better clocks than the 3600.

Hmm scan doesn't look like a good option.
The 3600x is 10 pounds more expensive than overclockers, the aorus elite 5 pounds more expensive and the ram team dark is not an option for buying..

Finally ordered the 3600x and rest of items from Amazon UK.
Is there a dedicated thread about that cpu?

None that I know of. If OP allows, we could probably just join here. Just got my 3600 installed and surprised that it runs rather cool contrary to what I've read about it. This is at optimized default in the bios (all stock) with RAM at 2400MHz CL16.

Both Clock and Voltage downclock using Windows Balance Plan with minimum processor state at 25%.

Motherboard: Asus Prime X470 Pro
BIOS: 5007.

You gonna love it.

Good job man!

Next week I am expecting my 3600x+ Gigabyte 570 aorus elite+g.skill trident 16gb Cas15 3200 and can't wait to start experimenting and benchmarking with them.
I noticed that everybody is using Cinebench for benchmarks. I have also bought 3D mark.
I plan to transfer my current windows 10 together with my evo ssd from my current setup to the new one.

Anything else I should keep in mind?

If you will use the stock cooler temporarily, scrape off the stock paste and replace it with something like MX-4. You might find the stock cooler lacking but it will do for stock settings. In the future, invest to something like this.

You can ask here to get a better idea about the board. Like which BIOS to avoid,

I applied the paste as shown in the pic.

Mine R5 3600 runs quite cool too, even overlclocked.

I´m using 1.408v and 1.2SOC to a rock solid 4.2 Ghz. Such easy over!

Comparing my old R5 2600 @ 4.2 too, the results are excelent! Same motherboard, memory, SSD, just a CPU swap.

R5 2600 @ 4.2Ghz: S.C:176 - M.C: 1446
R5 3600 @ 4.2Ghz: S.C:198 - M.C: 1676

The new CPU at the same clock of the old, is faster! About 12.5% in single core and 16% multi core.

Such great value CPU!

For 24/7 use you shouldn't use more than 1.325 volt and you do know theres a newer bios version 5204
