Overclocking Ryzen 7 5800X3D is possible, but not recommended

Since the announcement of AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D during the last CES 2022, it has become clear that AMD has put all its meat on the grill to provide the gaming community with an exceptional chip. And not just its speed, which can reach 4.5 GHz in turbo modebut using 3D V-Cache technologywhich allows the memory to overlap vertically, so that capacity increases without having to enlarge the container, and therefore it is possible for the processor to fit into the current AMD AM4 socket.

If you don’t remember, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D stands out especially for its own 100 megabyte cache (4 MB L2 cache and 96 MB L3 cache), to which is added the performance of its eight cores and 16 threads, which, as indicated above, can reach 4.5 gigahertz.

Model Cores / threads maximum frequency Cache (L2 + L3) TDP
Ryzen 7 5800X3D 8/16 up to 4.5 GHz 100 MB 105W

The internal complexity of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D limits, yes, the maximum voltage it can handle, so AMD offers it as an integrated non-overclocking and, in fact, several related functions are deactivated to avoid the risks that this operation could pose. According to AMD, the maximum voltage it allows is 1.35 volts, which is exactly what it works on when it reaches its maximum rated power. Other ZEN 3 chips can scale up to 1.6 volts, but this is because the complexity and density of the components inside these chips is less than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

That makes it clear to us exceeding 1.35 volts on this chip can result in fatal damage on our brand new processor. In other words, we strongly recommend from MuyComputer, if you have a Ryzen 7 5800X3D, strictly follow AMD’s recommendations, unless you are afraid of the possibility that the processor will become quite expensive.

And why am I saying that? Well, because although AMD, as I indicated earlier, has disabled overclocking features, it has not closed this door completely, and although I understand that it was not done with the intention that users would skip this restriction, there is already someone who did itthus increasing the maximum frequency of Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

In addition, the Twitter user SkatterBencher is the author of such audacious audacity illustrate the result with several screenshots CPU-Z, hresponded to several users who had doubts about how to carry out the process run Ryzen 7 5800X3D above its maximum recommended frequency. And what’s even more interesting, without increasing the internal voltage of the processor.

The result of the settings made is the processor reached 4.82 gigahertzabout 300 “extra” megahertz maintaining the voltage at 1,306 volts. Of course, one thing is the peak performance achieved in the test and the other the stability that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D can offer when working with this modification. So it’s a matter of time, specifically waiting for new messages from SkatterBencher to find out if he managed to keep the processor running at this frequency, or if he had to give up due to lack of stability, or even if the chip ended up damaged.

Recall that the release date of Ryzen 7 5800X3D is April 20thand that its price will be $ 449.
