    Mini ITX - no GPU, 120mm AIO compatible

    Thanks mate. I was really looking to avoid buying a new cooler hence the AIO, but I'll have a look at those suggestions.

    Mini ITX - no GPU, 120mm AIO compatible

    Hi guys. After some upgrades and changes to my system I find myself with almost enough spare components for another PC. My question is thus - are there any compact ITX cases out there that will accommodate a 120mm AIO? I won't be adding a GPU, so I want to keep the build as small as possible...

    The Ryzen 5 3600 Discussion Thread

    There seems to be quite a few people who are misunderstanding what the advertised boost clocks mean. I've had to point out to several folk that it shouldn't be surprising that their 3600 isn't boosting to 4.2GHz on all cores at the same time.

    The Ryzen 5 3600 Discussion Thread

    Temps are from HWMonitor. I find the temps stay lower in general because it isn't spiking so high. It's generally more consistent. Fan wise I have my radiator at the front of the case with two 120s set to pull and then two exhaust fans at the back and rear. I ditched the NZXT fans and put the...

    Safe overclock rate?

    I've seen people successfully overclock them to 4.8GHz. There isn't really an unsafe overclock as long as you keep your voltage sensible, it'll just become unstable when you push it to it's limit. I'm no expert on that particular chip but it looks like a lot of people are saying 1.5V is fairly...

    Ryzen 3600 + Cool & Quiet

    Just wondering what other people's experiences of using **** & Quiet have been as I'm seeing some slightly unexpected results. I'm running an all core manual 4.2GHz overclock at 1.37V VCore. With Cool & Quiet disabled, the individual core voltages sit at around 1.1V idle and 1.075 under load...

    4.4 is not stock speed. If Cinebench crashes it, it isn't stable.

    Lovely stuff. Does this see an improvement on your cinebench scores?

    That used to be the case but with Zen 2 they don't have to be locked into a 1:1 ratio

    Have you run a stability test using all of your ram with those timings?

    Ryzen 3600 Cinebench Scores

    Well you certainly seem to have been luckier than me as my sub timings won't budge at all!

    I'm at 3333 currently but haven't done a long stability test yet.

    Ryzen 3600 Cinebench Scores

    Th Thanks for clarifying. I seem to have IF steady at 1900MHz now with SoC at 1.15 and RAM voltage at 1.38. Would you suggest tightening timings at the expense of higher ram speed and or IF?

    Ryzen 3600 Cinebench Scores

    What RAM voltage are you running? I have mine set to 1.37

    Ryzen 3600 Cinebench Scores

    Cool, thanks. Cranked my SoC voltage to 1.175 and fabric clock to 1833MHz which seems to run nicely. Not really seeing any performance gains though. The best I can seem to do on my secondary timings is 16-19-19-19 (can't even boot to Windows with anything less than 19). My latency still doesn't...

    The information is all there in my post. I can't get the fabric clock beyond 1700MHz and have it run stably.
