    No, you are not guaranteed a 4GHz overclock. No chips are the same and some Ryzen CPUs (Most of them actually) hit the brickwall at 3.8 or 3.9GHz.

    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

    Yours is not a 1700 i know, but the 1600 and 1600x are not much different.
