Overclocking Results

 

CPU Overclocking

 

AMD's Threadripper platform is quite interesting, as AMD stated the top 5% of Zen dies become Threadripper CPUs. That is a big deal, as that would also mean the CPU should overclock quite high, or at least consistently high.

 

My best overclock on the X370 platform was 4GHz with 3200Mhz memory speeds after months of BIOS updates, so I will aim for the same here. Most people get limited around 4.1GHz, and I know my 1950X can't do 4.1Ghz stable on all cores without tons of voltage or better cooling.

It was very easy to overclock the CPU using MSI's UEFI. I went and set OC Explore mode to expert, set the CPU ratio, then enabled A-XMP, set VCore to 1.325v, and went into the DigitALL Power menu and maximized all CPU VRM temperature and current limitations.
