AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Processor Review

Overclocking
Overclocking on Ryzen systems is very easy to do, sometimes even easier than doing on Intel systems. On our ASUS Prime X470 Pro motherboard we go into the BIOS and simply change the CPU Core Ratio. So we start at 36 and continue to go up until our system is unstable or temperatures get to high.

We ended up with a stable overclock of 4.1 GHz across all six cores. We tried to get up to 4.2 GHz, but the system just got too hot. I would say that you’ll want to get a high performance air cooler or an AiO if you want to overclock this chip 24/7.

Here are some of our benchmarks with the processor overclocked.
