Ryzen 7 1700 w/ B350M Gaming 3

I have a Ryzen 1700 seated on a GIGABYTE AB350M-GAMING3 Motherboard paired with GTX 1070. The processor is clocked at 3.2GHz and doesn't go beyond 3.2GHz so how do I make it cross the 3.2GHz limit?

Also, should I use Ryzen Master appplication to overclock my Processor? Any preferred settings?

    Always use Bios to overclock. As for trying to overclock each CPU will be different this is referred to as the Silicon Lottery.

    As to preferred settings id look into overclocking forums that are already on here. there are no starting point if you will just steps to increase the Clock speeds then testing them for stability. There are many overclocking guides on you tube for your CPU.

  2. Same motherboard and processor as you, also with a 1070. Been running happily at 3.6Ghz for around 10 months. Had some issues with clock speed and memory speed dropping when I tried updating to newer BIOS releases, so reverted back to F7 and now sticking there. All clocking done via the BIOS for me.
