Ryzen 1600 3.7

Messing with my cpu, have the ryzen 5 1600. At 3.7ghz on stock cooler with 1.275 volts.

CPU: R5 1600
Mobo: ASRock AB350m Pro 4
Ram Crucial Ballistix 2400(2x4gb)
PSU: EVGA 600B
GFX: Radeon 7950

Stock cooler. Max temp under Intel CPU burn hit 74. Is this safe? At idle I'm in the 30's, seem to be 40's-50's in games. Thinking I would like a better cooler. When I tried 3.8 at that voltage, the board I'm guessing just powered things down, I could hold the power button down and restart no problem. I think board has a protection that is supposed to help overheating. What is max temp on these things? May get water cooling like an H60 later.

  1. 74 Degrees is perfectly safe on a CPU. If you start going over 85C i would consider clocking it a bit down. But yeah, perfectly safe.

  2. Ok. Because when I stressed with Intel cpu burn it was actually cutting power I think. I may need to look in the bios. I've got a cooler master storm scout. I have 2 120 fans ordered to go on the side, and I have a 140mm ordered for the top as it has a spot there for a blowhole top exhaust or could used for intake.

    I guess I'm also more used to overclocking the old fx CPUs where you didn't go over 60. Had a v6 gt in push pull mode that was nice to work with. Maybe I should just pop for 212 Evo.

    Eh, Maybe you could buy the 212. But since you are buying so many new fans, i really don`t see a reason just yet, unless it is cutting power, and you are actually "getting higher temps".

  4. I think at 3.8 I saw it push toward 83. According to the latest HWMonitor.

    When I say cut power, I mean that the screen went black during the stress test, but that system actually stayed on. In other words, lost display, lights, fans etc kept spinning. If I powered down by pressing holding the power button, it powers completely off, then power up again, it posts, then was able to go into the bios and clock downward a bit.

    I did notice because I'd read that 1.28 was recommended for 3.8, so I attempted to manually set my voltage at that, knowing you can safely go to 1.4. But it seems to not allow you to go any further than about 1.2775 if memory serves. i'm not in front of the system unfortunately.

    Here's the board I'm actually running. Got it from Micrcoenter with a 2 year warranty though.

    This is the case I've got it in now. A few years old, but still decent. Have front intake fan and rear exhaust. Will be adding 2 side panel fans and a 140mm to the top to replace the original.

    Power supply is the EVGA 600B, 49 amps on the 12v rail if I remember correctly. Not the best PSU, but for a 65 watt cpu, and a 7950 would think it's more than enough.

    Hm, okay. That was actually pretty wierd, i agree with you, that PSU should be more than enough. Maybe somethings off with the MOBO or something? It seems very unlikely that the PSU can`t give enough power, so i dunno, that was pretty weird.

  6. Yeah, I'll play with it, I think that the board did have a setting to shut off to prevent overheating, so it may be that it seems the cpu getting in that 75 degree or higher envelope and is just cutting it off. My case fans are all connected via the old school molex connectors, which might explain why they would stay running but the board could shut off.

    Yeah, that`s probably it. Just play around a bit. Hope i could help with something btw! :D

  8. If I have questions I'll create a new thread. I think my fans are on a slow boat from china. Got them from ebay 5 bucks for 2 120mm, and 5 I think for the 140mm. So I can't complain on price lol. But would rather spend my money for a new ssd. I put mine in my wife's laptop, and you can feel the difference when using the standard old hard drive haha.

    xD yeah, there`s a pretty big diffrence between SSDs and Hardrives Lol. Hope you get a SSD soon tho. Also, that price is VERy cheap, almost makes them look bad or something.
