Ryzen 7 1700 Overclock - Bad Chip? Lost The Lottery?

Ryzen 7 1700
MSI Carbon Gaming Pro x370
Corsair DDR4 3200Mhz
Hyper Evo 212 Cooler

Trying to overclock my Ryzen 1700 & RAM but struggling to get anything stable with low temps

The best I've done so far is 3.7Ghz at 1.28v (VOC +1.000), spikes to 1.30v on stress test, Idle temps around 35c - max temps 71C ish.

If i try push 3.8ghz, I have to increase voltage to 1.37v (VOC +1.000), which spikes to 1.4v on stress test, max temps hitting around 89c at times... too high

3.9+ is out of the question

RAM will not go past 3066mhz either on 1.38v, or if I change Command Line to 2T I can get it running at 1.35v


Have I got a poor Ryzen chip here? was hoping to push 3.9ghz, or even 3.8 ghz, on lower volts with max temps around 70c max

    You've got an 8 core / 16 thread CPU on an air cooler. You can try a remount, with a higher quality thermal paste, but....I doubt your temps drop all that much.

    Have you updated to the most current bios for your board?

    I've tried overclocking the same cpu, at 3.8 the max temp was 55 degrees c on a corsair h100i v2.
