Overclocking RAM speed AMD Ryzen 1600

Im building a new PC and in my build ill have the AMD Ryzen 5 1600 paired with MSI x370 Gaming Plus MOBO and the stock cooler. So I have some questions:
How much can I overclock the speed of CPU,
How much can I overclock the RAM speed( I will go with the 3000MHz or the 2133 MHz RAM speed depending on the answers u give me or recommend )
Please help

  1. 1) It depends on your cooler. If you are only using the stock cooler that comes with the CPU, then not much. Further, it depends on how good you did on the silicon lottery. No two same chips ever overclock at exactly the same level.

    2) I would not recommend overclocking RAM on a new chipset like Ryzen. Motherboard makers are still working out bugs, especially around memory. Further, in typical use (gaming, light video editing) there won't be much difference in performance between say 2400MHz and 3000MHz.

  5. If they're running at less than 3200 14cas, they're very likely not Sammy b-die.

  6. 3.8 Ghz is good, but 3.7 is better, bcs you can lower CPU volt under Stock, and both ram timings and Hz will oc higher=less watt/noise/temp vs the extra 2.5%cpu speed/ 2-4 extra fps in games and dont forget the very high ramtimings..no way, in the end you will gain nothing. I always do OC where Ram Timing and Watt is my main concern. I have TridenzZ 3200, but ryzen/trident sweetspot on stock Volt is 2966hz.(even 3066 on these 3200=very high Ram timings).... My 24/ OC=3.7ghz-1.244V....2966Hz, 1.35V,14-14-14-30-52..CineB=1250, (14-13-13-30-52 was slower-wierd?)
