Overclocking and CPU-Z
The three processors are of Zen 2 architecture and manufactured using 7nm processor. Just a recap
The AMD Ryzen 9 3900X has 12 cores, 24 threads and clock at 3.8 GHz with Turbo at 4.6 GHz. It has 6 MB L2 cache and 64 MB of L3 cache. It has a TDP of 105W.
The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X has 8 cores, 16 threads and clocks at 3.6 GHz with Turbo at 4.4 GHz. It has 4 MB L2 cache and 32 MB L3 cache. It has a TDP of 65W.
The AMD Ryzen 5 3600X has 6 cores, 12 threads and clocks at 3.8 GHz with Turbo at 4.4 GHz. It has 3 MB L2 cache and 32 MB L3 cache. It has a TDP of 95W.
In the past, e.g. the Ryzen 7 2700X hit the wall around 4.2 ~ 4.3 GHz. Will the 3rd generation do better ? We give all the processors a push with Vcore at 1.45v, Vdimm at 1.35v. Multiplier can be set within BIOS. DDR modules are set as XMP Profile 1 which is CAS 16,16-16-16,1T at DDR4-3200.
Overclocking the Ryzen 5 3600X
The Ryzen 5 3600X can be overclocked to 4.2 GHz through BIOS multiplier. 4.3 GHz is bootable but unstable. Max temperature hit 75 deg C.
Overclocking the Ryzen 7 3700X
It can overclock to 4.3 GHz and is stable to complete the test. Max temp hit 76 deg C.
Overclocking the Ryzezn 9 3900X
Again, it hit the wall at 4.3 GHz. 4.4 GHz is bootable but benchmark test failed. Max temperature hit was 84 deg C.
