Overclocking Results

CPU Overclocking

AMD's Ryzen platform is quite new; AMD and its partners are working very hard on fixing issues and getting things to work across the board. The CPU also doesn't validate that much higher than its maximum stable frequency. Memory overclocking is topped at 3200MHz on most motherboards, and bus adjustment is also very tricky.

Don't get me wrong, the CPU can overclock, mine does 4.0GHz, and the best I can get a kit is to 3000MHz. I will go through and tell you exactly what I did to achieve my maximum stable overclock, and as AMD's ecosystem of compatible memory kits becomes larger, I will add in a memory compatibility section.

The X370 Gaming-ITX/ac was able to take our 1800X to 3.9GHz, which isn't too shabby considering the size of the VRM on the motherboard. I set 1.35v and the CPU ratio and had no problem booting up. I wasn't able to get memory to 2933Mhz, but 2800MHz was doable.
