Ryzen 5 1600 poor overclock?

So I have the Ryzen 5 1600 and thought I would share my experience overclocking with you all.

My build is:
Ryzen 5 1600
MSI B350M Motherboard
8GB Ballistix Ram 2400

So I have been trying to squeeze out a 3.8Ghz oc on the stock cooler that many other R5 users have managed to get success with, however my chip simply will not perform.
Most users manage to get stable overclocks as low as 1.25v, failing that, the majority of users are managing to get stable overclocks at 1.35v.

Then there is my chip, 3.8Ghz at 1.35v will crash within 20 seconds of testing on OCCT.
3.8Ghz at 1.38v again, crashes in under a minute on OCCT.

Finally, I have pushed it to 1.4v (the max that I am comfortable with) and again, system crash within one minute. I have updated my BIOS to the latest yet this has yielded no differences.

I have noticed that temps rise quickly to roughly 75-77c before complete black screen, not sure if this may have something to do with it.

Now, either I'm doing something extremely incorrect with my overclock settings, or my chip is on the worst side of the silicon lottery. What do you guys think?:??:

  1. Well for one. Ryzen can OC but it is not a strong OCer. It's been proven a few times now. Secondly, it kinda of sounds like you just lost the silicon lottery with your chip. Not much you can do about that.

    Everyone's overclocking settings are going to be different. No one scheme can be applied to all systems as they act differently depending on the hardware installed.

    Try tweaking what you feeling safe doing to get to the GHz you want. If it is not leveling out and obtaining stable results through benchmarks. Then you are OCing to high for your exact chip.

  2. Sounds like you need to remount your cooler, or, get a better one before attempting to overclock. Not going to say that's the problem, but.....

  3. when you OC CPU, RAM follows - You rise V on ram, and/or rise(higher) the RAM timings, and get the 212 evo cooler (30$)...my sweetspot 24/7 OC on stock V with Ryzen5 1600=3.725Ghz, 2966hz 14-14-14-30-52, stock cooler=30 idle/80 stressed (212 evo=30/64)

  4. Hey there I have my ryzen 5 1600 on 3.7 whit 1.23v and it never goes above 63℃.
    On sock cooler and I have my curve for cooler I made it run on 100% when I hit 61℃.
    I donno why u guys leave your voltage on auto . I saw a lot of ppl say 3.7 is the most stable speed for stock cooler and you rly don't need more if u ask me.
