A question regarding a certain AM4 motherboard. (OVERLOCKING HELP)

Hey guys, basically I have bought a ryzen 3 1200 chip and an asus b350m-k motherboard with it. I have managed to do a stable 3.7ghz overlock @ 1.2V with the temperatures reaching only 65 degrees max on aida64 while CPU, FPU and cache stress testing using the stock cooler. I am very concerned about the fact that the motherboard I am using does not have heatsinks on the VRMs. Will my motherboard get damaged? I think that it wont because the voltage increase was very low. And also with this kind of a voltage increase there wont be any chances of the cpu getting damaged? Sorry if I sound stupid but I am really new to overclocking :D

Also, has anyone been able to reach 3.7ghz+ at the stock voltage? Please let me know if you did as I will probably attempt it tomorrow.

    Just check VRM temperature under full load but I doubt stock voltage can overheat it. As far as CPU is concerned, AMD recommends max voltage/ temp as 1.425/75c so you are way in safety zone.
    I don't know way you OC-ed but use HW Info https://www.hwinfo.com/download.php fort most accurate readings. If you left voltage at auto, it can jump quite a bit when under full load.

    Thank you for the fast response. Core voltage is set to offset mode and it has been only increased by +0.0125 volts. What is the max safe temperature for the VRM?
  3. Some say 90c, some say more than 100c so 50c would be just fine. That's temperature you can keep your finger on for long time.
