  1. Hey guys, so first of I am a complete noob when it comes to overclocking. But I have already seen a bunch of videos on how to do it. So thats why I decided to do it myself. But is it actually usefull to overclock my Ryzen 5 1600? Because the base clock is 3.2 ghz but it boosts up to 3.6 when I play games. I have already tried some overclocking without touching the voltage and I got to 3.8 ghz and ran Prime95 for 10 minutes. Then I went up to 3.9 but it would crash. So basically I would only gain like 0.2 ghz right? So how much of a perfomance boost would that actually be when I play games? And right now when I am browsing the CPU is only at 3.2 ghz and when I overclock it then it would run at 3.8 everytime. Wouldnt that be unnecessary? I mean the CPU would get higher temps because of the higher clock speed and I would gain no performance boost since I am just browsing right? So yeah as you can see I have a ton of questions. I hope some of you can answer them for me to get everything clear when it comes to overclocking. My system: Asus Prime B350 Plus MB Ryzen 5 1600 with the stock cooler GTX 950 (I know its a huge bottleneck but I will buy the GTX 1060 6GB next month) 8GB DDR4 2400 Corsair80 Plus Bronze 450W PSU.
