    Yes, only because I got a low end Ryzen 3600, I run it at 4.2 all core and lower vcore than normal. I also overclock my memory to 3600 cl14

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    I do not currently overlock my Ryzen 3900X, but that's largely because I haven't done enough background reading yet. I found both the BIOS and AMD's Ryzen Master software quite confusing. I'd like to see if I can puch it above 4.0-4.05GHz all-core with Handbrake.

    A number of my other PCs are overclocked at stock voltages:
    3.5GHz i7-3770k overclocked to 4.2GHz
    3.5GHz i7-2700k overclocked to 4.3GHz
    2.4GHz Core2 Q6600 overclocked to 2.7GHz
    2.4GHz Core2 E6600 overclocked to 3.2GHz

    I dont think its worth it as there are a number of cores on each CPU, what game actually uses all 100% of cores at 100%?

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    I tinkered a few times over the 30 years I've been building PCs, but never really found much point to it. Gains are often marginal and stability tends to go down. I haven't overclocked a CPU for probably a decade at least.

    Nope, no need nowadays in my opinion.

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    Cant on the CPUs as the Xeon's dont support OC.

    Have OC and undervolt on the GPU but tbh if I hadnt it would be running faster under self boost but louder and hotter.

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    No, not really. Well, not anymore. I used to - when overclocking brought useful gains.

    These days, there's hardly any headroom left in modern CPUs to justify the effort and/or cost.

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    Not unless you count PBO as overclocking. Currently have my 3600 PBO'd to 4100 Ghz, and memory at factory XMP 3600 on a cheap Arctic cooler. Never goes above 70 deg.
    Very quiet too.

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    I run my 5800x in ECO Mode, so rather than being an overclock, it's an underclock!! Did it as I got annoyed with overly noisy fans just doing simple things while browsing the web, since the CPU would occasionally boost up, and the temps would get silly ultra quick, even with a fairly decent air cooler. Now it's more 'refined' and i've lost zero performance in games, but gained a quieter system all round. I feel like CPU's these days are pretty much overclocked out of the box anyway, so overclocking is less important these days.

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    Never overclocked anything until my current 1070 - which is more of an undervolt than anything else.

    Though technically my MB overclocks my i5 10500 via BFB.

    Not any more. The tiny boost I might get isn't worth it these days and even modest CPUs usually have underutilized cores.

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    No overclocking here.
    Not even the standard i7 option (50% )
    I go for quiet running fans.

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    Not anymore.

    BUT ! i started doing that on my 700 MHZ athlon, and the last CPU i OCed was my northwood

    Okay my current threadripper also go +500 MHZ on all cores, but just click . click - click i cant bother being hunched over the computer to extract every MHZ i can.
    On the other hand GFX cards i never bothered doing OC on.

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    Nope, I run a 5800X which eats everything I throw at it. I only have a 2070Super but that's because of the current situation. Hope to get a better graphics card soon.

    Re: QOTW: Do you overclock?

    There is no proper solution for actual over clocking today, all the coolers is more abour RGB than actual cooling effect... and on that I directly target all these 'water coooling' solutions and similar.
