Ryzen 7 1700 OC

Hi,

so I've tried to overclock my new CPU (Ryzen 7 1700) via the asus AI suite auto overclock, since I have never overclocked a CPU in bios, I've read that the Ryzen 7 should go to at least 3.9 GHz without any problems, I've tried it 3x and it only got to 3850 MHz when it crashed, and reverted to 3,8 GHz as final result with max. watts of 130.2 W, max. voltage @ 1.373 V and max. temp @ 29 °C (running with corsair hydro h110i). my question is, do I have a chance to OC the CPU at or above 3.9 GHz through BIOS? or should I stay with this 3.8 setup?

Thanks

  1. Now there's no guarantee that a CPU will hit any frequency above its default frequency. However You may be able to reach 3.9GHz on 1.4v.

  2. This may happen. My first chip was even worse and needed more than 1.42V for just 3.75 GHz stable. So it is fair to say my first chip was like worst case (<1% worst) and yours is better but below average still. Don't trust these misinformation spreading dudes and correct them rather. Every chip is different and some Ryzen just don't hit 3.9, some like my first not even 3.8 so consider that. 3.7 should be achievable for every chip. Only thing you can do is settle with 3.8 (maybe 3.85 at insane Voltages) or exchange the chip through a better sample somehow.

    According to "Silicon Lottery"
    Ryzen 7 1700
    93% reach 3.8GHz @ 1.376V
    70% reach 3.9GHz @ 1.408V
    20% reach 4.0GHz @ 1.440V
    Ryzen 7 1700X
    100% reach 3.8GHz @ 1.360V
    77% reach 3.9GHz @ 1.392V
    33% reach 4.0GHz @ 1.424V
    Ryzen 7 1800X
    100% reach 3.8GHz (assumed)
    97% reach 3.9GHz @ 1.376V
    67% reach 4.0GHz @ 1.408V
    20% reach 4.1GHz @ 1.440V

    So yours is just some of these 30% that don't do 3.9. Not the worst of luck. Mine was the nearly worst of those 7% which didn't do the 3.8 that every higher tear should do.

  3. hmm I'll try to increase the voltage but as I said I've never done an oc through bios

    So i have ny r7 1700 at 1.375volts and 3.9ghz rock stable. Overnight prime95 test no problems.
    Temps stay well below 70c with noctua nh d15.
    How far do you think i can go with the overclock?
