So decided to go ahead and put this here or I will end up posting crap in other discussions about my results. Ive begun the process of testing a R5 2600 which was recently purchased. Over all this is a very fun chip to play with and I am quite happy with the performance so far.
The system specs.
CPU : AMD Ryzen 5 2600
MB : Asus TUF x470
GPU: Asus RTX2060 6GB
MEM: G-Skill Trident Z RGB 3200
PSU: Enermax Revolution 85+ 1020w
CASE: Be Quiet! 600
FANS: Be Quiet! Silent Wings 3 x 6
RADS : EK 360PE (Push Only)
WBK : EK EVO/MX Hybrid
PUMP/RES : DDC/AquaComputer Aqualis 150
MON : Dell S2417DG (G-Sync)
(Rest of stuff should go here but im lazy)
I spent a little time reading peoples results like usual when purchasing a new CPU and the vast majority seemed to believe that 1.375vCore was about the threshold to get close to 4.0Ghz on this chip. So playing the silicon lotto, I decided to bet on black and plugged in 1.35v and 4.1Ghz. Sure enough it boot right up and didn't even fuss about it under prime 95 with a max temp of 59C after a few hours. So I decided to begin pushing it further and tweaking settings. Currently this is what i'm playing with coming up with a 24/7 stable profile limit to save as a fall back. I left the LLC on for this screen shot so the voltages and temps were a little higher. This is once again me being lazy and not rebooting to turn it off.
As of this point I know it will stabalize at 4.3Ghz but it requires a lot more voltage. I am exploring the other settings trying to find options that effect stability before pushing past this marker.
Also, note the absolutely ridiculous core speed it has registered for max.
EDIT: I also wanted to note the fans are PWM controlled. At the peak temp you seen there they are only at about 75% speed. They are set to max at around 70C.
