Overclocking

We started at the default 3700MHz clock speed and kept increasing 100MHz at a time until our benchmark scores passed default.

We’re testing on ASRock’s Latest X570 PG Velocita so we’ll use its Windows Utility to overclock. We ramped up to 4.5GHz all core before our Cinebench score passed our stock run.

At 4.50GHz we just clear out stock 1900 point run.

4.60GHz comes and goes easily.

At 4.7GHz, our single-core run also passes our stock run of 252 points.

4.8GHz gets a small boost to both scores.

We had to fight a little bit for 4.90GHz, ending up at 1.350V on Vcore.

At 4.9GHz, we end up with a multi-core score of 2108, an 11% increase over stock, and a single-core score of 267, or a 6% increase over stock. You often can’t get a boost to both, so this is a welcome surprise. We could probably get a few more MHz out of increase the factional multiplier, maybe 49.25x or 49.5x, but we wouldn’t want to run much higher voltage as a daily driver even though the temps were quite good on our water-cooled test bench. This does feel like a pretty good piece of silicon though as far as silicon lottery is concerned, so your results may be different.
