Yeah well, TSAIK has put the Ryzen 3 3100 under LN2 cooling and pushed it to a huge 5.9GHz.

AMD's new Ryzen 3 3100 is a 4-core 8-thread processor on the new 7nm node and packs the Zen 2 architecture, with our sample of the Ryzen 3 3100 reaching 4.4GHz when overclocked. TSAIK used LN2 cooling to push his Ryzen 3 3100, reaching an overclock of 5923.62MHz (to be exact).

He used an MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk Wi-Fi motherboard, and juiced the Ryzen 3 3100 with 1.45V -- all using a single 8GB stick of DDR4 memory at 1600MHz.
