Overclocking and Power Consumption

 

Power Consumption

Power consumption is really good on the 3700X, whatever AMD said they would do has been done, and even the 12 core 3900X is looking great.

 

 

Overclocking

Both CPUs were able to do 4.3GHz all cores with 1.43v, and that is where they hit the thermal limit. We used the stock cooler as well. We set memory to XMP, but we are told by many vendors that over 4GHz on memory is possible on air. These are HUGE improvements upon the previous generation.

AMD's Ryzen Master has been slightly revamped and you can overclock the chiplets independently, and this is where most people will find a better solution.
