AMD Ryzen 7 2700X with Corsair H60 Overclocking & Undervolting

Final Overclock and Boost

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Overclocking/Undervolting

Final Overclock and Boost

By bumping the VCore back up to 1.225v, still 0.175v lower than stock, we end up with this setup, where the Ryzen 7 2700X is now running 4 GHz on all cores, at all times, with perfect stability. It shows how much more efficient this 2nd Generation of AMD CPUs are when compared to the first - by no means bad - iteration of the Zen architecture.

If you still want your system to boost then this setup of 1.225v allows the 2700X to run at 4 GHz the majority of the time, but as you can see it will also happily say its boosting up to 5 GHz when the need arises. This is just a glitch..... It made us wonder and get massively excited but it is just misreporting in the software.

"nobody wants to put 1.4V 24/7..."

But damn i wanted 3.9 so badly. I guess... well. Maybe. Mhh. You made me think. Maybe I'll tinker with it a bit more and see how far 1.3 will get me xDQuote

1.4v is safe for Ryzen. AMD recommends no more than 1.45v for extended periods. So personally 1.4v is the max I would go.

As for the article it's crazy to see how that bump from the optimized 4ghz to the 4.2ghz max clock changes temps and power draw. Definitely not worth 200mhz..Quote

I've been looking at the x470 Prime for a 2700X build, and the heatsinks don't fill me with confidence. How were VRM temps during testing?Quote

You should be fine honestly. Unless you are maxing out the CPU on a OC you'll be alright.Quote

Ok I'm a bit confused by this review, because while a stable all-core frequency is good for multithreaded workloads, for games it's been shown that it's best to let XFR2 do its job, which is what I thought was the purpose of this Corsair H60 watercooler.

But it seems that performance was completely irrelevant, just voltage/consumption and temperature. This is all great and all, but unless I'm not getting something, this review is NOT something a gamer should be doing to its CPU.

Unless the monitor is limited to 60 Hz I suppose, then I guess it's worth it because no games will benefit from the higher frequency while capped by the monitor's refresh rate.Quote
