    It's not fucking lottery if they are doing it on purpose...it's called fraud. This isn't specific to AMD by the way. I went through this experience with corsair memory.

              3900X on a Gigabyte Aorus Pro over here in Holland, togeteher with 32GB of Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB RAM, and a AMD 5700 xt, i am not really a gamer.
              End to keep the CPU nice and cool it put a Corsair H150i Pro AIO on top of it.
              End after the last Gigabyte BIOS update of two days ago, it boost up to 4688 MHz.
              So i am a happy Dutchman ;-)

                      I have a 2500k now running at 4.8 to 5 ghz and i want to upgrade it soon. Which ryzen is best? I heard that intel is far behind is that true?
                      Why cant you overclock the new cpus that much?

                        Intel isn't far behind at all but there's actually no point buying them right now, Ryzen 3600 is all you need literally. I can't gauge why Ryzen doesn't overclock well as I'm a noob at overclocking but yeah 3600 is all you need for 1440p and beyond.

                                    Using Ryzen Master only, my Ryzen 5 3600 overclocks to 4200MHz on all cores without an issue. It sometimes self boosts too 4294MHz on it's own from there. I use CPUID HWMonitor to see how things are going. I'm using a Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 240 RGB Liquid CPU Cooler. I see temps max out at around 70c while gaming.

                                              thanks for pointing that CCX overclocking out was running my 3900x all core OC 4.475ghz 1.375v on my custom water cooled rig, my ryzen master stress test results at 1.375v are ccd0: ccx0 = 4.675pass (4.700crash) ccx1 = 4.650pass (4.675crash) ccd1: ccx0 = 4.550pass (4.575crash) ccx1 = 4.550pass (4.575crash) armed with this after trial and error and working out ccd1,ccx1 was the worst managed a CB R15 run at 4.600 4.525 4.475 4.450 for the respective CCX , total score was 3471, and a CPU-Z run of 568.1 single thread 9120.2 multi thread , do note this is riding the kifes edge of stability in a system with 2 280mm rad 30mm and 45mm respectively cooled with 4 ppc industrials that meet up to the edeges of the motherboard any proper stress test would crash forsure at these settings, I wonder if the 16 cores are gonna have a meh chiplet or two top binned

                                                                To be clear, I don't care about your weight. I don't want you to look like James or Riley, and I appreciate what you bring to the channel that they don't. I also know how fickle the YT audience can be.

                                                                Your hair, Anthony... Just be bald. I hate to be so shallow, but that little mustache of hair in front of your bald-spot is revolting. It detracts from how good you are, and if I have to be the guy to bring it up then I will be that guy.

                                                                You have the potential to be LTT's MVP. The contributors and commenters love you. This is tough love, buddy: take care of yourself, and care about how you present yourself.

                                                                              I would say all the hosts each have their qualities. But the reason why Anthony gets all the special attention is that you guys feel he needs it. He doesn't need any more cheering on than any of the other hosts, the guy has been solid from the start.

                                                                                how can we see how much we can overclock a hardward or CPU or memory? while avoid breaking the hardware?
                                                                                how do we know when we will break it and to stop before breaking it? do we know it by the heat readings or something?

                                                                                no idea what is going on......
