MSI MEG X570 ACE (AMD X570) Motherboard Review 66 |

The new CPUs don't overclock like crazy on-air, in fact, PBOC might be just as effective for mixed-use cases. However, memory and FCLK clocks can be changed, and so we are using a 3600MHz kit and seeing how high we can take all cores. We aimed for 4.2GHz, and we were able to get there with 1.415v set, and we did this because the auto LLC levels were quite good but a bit strong for us to use our typical 4.2Ghz OC.

We didn't need to alter many other settings, but we did see in the change list that the UEFI would change some OC settings to enable in the background. We like these type of auto-rules, as they make overclocking less of a hassle. We also just set XMP and we were able to easily hit 3.6GHz.
