Ryzen 1600x crash at 70°

Hey all, so I'm having some OC difficulty with my Ryzen 1600x. I have gotten it stable below 70° at 4.0 with voltage set to auto (it crashes @ 1.375 in bios , so voltage is about 1.38) and LLC is still at auto. I have my xmp profile engaged at 2933 mhz for my Corsair vengence lpx ram whigh has been tested stable for me at stock speeds.

I really can't figure out why the computer shuts off at 70°. The only thing I can. Think of is that the OC is unstable at that temps (I know ryzen can be finiky).

System specs:
Ryzen 1600x 4.0 OC @1.38v
Aorus x370 gaming 5
Corsair vengence lpx ram at 2933mhz
EVGA supernova 750w gold
2 Rx 480 CF

Any help or advice would be great. I'm starting to get a bit frustrated lol.

  1. Set the RAM back to 2133 and see if it stops crashing. Then set the RAM back up and set the CPU to stock to see if crashes. Figure out which for sure is causing the issue.

    I've already setthe CPU back to stock and stress tested it at 2933. I manipulated my environment to raise ambient temps and the CPU settled at 72.8° after 2 hrs of prime. So i believe I've isolated it to the CPU being the issue

  3. You may have to limit your overclock to 3.975 but here is a video of them getting 4.075 so see if they changed anything you may need.

  4. I'll go through the steps again shown in the video. I'm certainly Hoping that my issue is memory compatibility. If I can't get this up a d running I'm just gonna sell of my 1600x and gaming 5 board and just go for a 1700 and a board that has better OC capabilities

  5. Some get 4.075Ghz so its just luck. Some get it working by changing RAM voltage to 1.4v. Sometimes ive seen lower voltage like 1.35v getting a overclock to work. Could be VRM's have a bit harder time.

    I'll give it all a shot. What's the worst that can happen right?
    The most confusing thing is I can't take the CPU core voltage off auto or it crashes, but it seems to lock at 1.38v

  7. That sounds like an issue you may need a bios update for. Do you motherboard vios version F6?

    Yeah I have the f6 update installed

  9. Try resetting bios then first try to change voltage.

    I'll give it a shot once I'm off work.

    on my Ryzen 1600x / asrock board if find the bios multiplier to be very buggy,
    36 multiplier seems to flicker between 36 and 41 so that doesn't post,
    40 or 41 multiplier also doesn't post don't know why,
    I had to settle with 38.75 multiplier to post and use the Ryzen tool to mess around,
    Mine just crashed a few minutes ago , reaching about 74c on die temp under Prime.

    so.. yeah one crappy cpu from AMD :-( the strange thing is that the more vcore you give and the higher the frequency it actually runs cooler makes no sense,

    I get very high temps on die at 3875@1.375v but cooler temps(20c less) at 4.1@1.42v
