Is this a Ryzen Silicon Lottery or just average for an overclock?

Recommended Posts

I got my Ryzen 7 1700X system all up and running. Brief Specs:

 

Asrock Fatal1ty B350

16GB FuryX Memory DDR4 2666

Corsair 650W PSU

1700X with Noctua NH-U12S SE-AM4 With 2 Fans on it

 

Currently running 4.0Ghz @ 1.356V Set in board. On CPU-Z on full load it shows 1.312V,  While running AIDA64. Temps never go above 50C in a room that is climate controlled at 72 degrees. 

 

I keep reading forums that say 4.0 is basically usually run at 1.4+ Volts. Not sure. It posts to bios at 4.1 at the 1.356V but wont boot windows. I didn't push it any higher on voltage or anything just yet. I want it to be 24/7 use, and dont want to pump 1.4+V through it. I am new to Ryzen, and only know as much as I can read on them. I also read there are conflicting voltage limits to running 24/7 use. Some sites suggest 1.35V  and others 1.375V.

 

Any input would be awesome as always! Maybe its just an above average chip? Not any crazy lottery win? I have no idea. Thanks guys/gals!

 

I am currently running a second 8 hour stability test as I type this since I didn't get my screenshot taken as I intended. Will update when complete.

 

Also, Is there a better stress test to take? I alternate between AIDA64 and Prime95

I would stress test it a bit. All of mine are between 4.0 and 4,09 using 1.325 to 1.46v to be stable. I can run 4.0 at 1.25 but if you put a good load on it you get a black screen failure.

Yeah, I could be at 4.2 if I didn't bsod every time I streamed lmao.

 

You might be able to push it higher.

I got it to 4.2Ghz at 1.43V but I dont like the temps at all and I dont see much of a performance improvement if at all. So, its going back to 4.0 at 1.356V lol.

4.0 is about average but it looks like you are doing better on the voltage required to get there!
