We already know what the Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor is like in games as well as in normal applications. As it turned out, this CPU can still be overclocked.
To begin with, it is worth noting that AMD itself has blocked overclocking of this processor at BIOS level. This is the first conditionally unclockable CPU of the company for many years. The reason is just in the additional cache memory chip. The fact is that modern Ryzen CPUs can run in overclocked mode at 1.5-1.6V, while the 3D V-Cache chip is designed only for 1.35V. However, enthusiasts have already found a workaround.
The overclocker armed himself with an Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme motherboard that supports Asus’ proprietary Voltage Suspension technology. He managed to boost the BCLK to 105.99Hz while keeping the multiplier at 45.5 and the voltage at 1.306V. As a result, the processor clocked in at 4.82GHz with a maximum of 4.5GHz.
Of course, given the conditions, overclocking the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is unlikely to interest ordinary users, but for overclockers, on the contrary, it is an additional challenge.
