    Default AMD Ryzen 2700X Overclocking, a Giant Question Mark

    A story came out claiming a Ryzen 2700X was overclocked to 4.35 GHz. On further investigation, the real number was 4.19 GHz. Could AMD have a let down on their hands when it comes to overclocking? Don't make that call just yet since the motherboard in question is a huge factor.

    Read the story in full here...

    I think it is now official that these are not good overclockers at all. Honestly though for me despite overclocking at times after buying overclockable cpus I didn't find I need the extra horse power and just put them at stock. I honestly think at this point it would be the same if I bought one of these cpus. No need though as still an i5 2500k still does the job for me.
    I wish I could build pcs each and every single day for the rest of my life. PC FTW !

    Do you run it with an AIO water cooler? If so what do you use?

    I had it on water custom loop one 240 and one 360 rad rez and pump at that time I also had my GPU on that system as well
    but if your cooling just your CPU alone one 240 AIO would be just fine its a cool running cpu to begin with.
    I gave the system to my Son who is still running it, and I went with the 4770K which runs a quite bit hotter then the 2500K

    I like this cooler but check out others as well, this one is not to flashy and it cools well and cheaper then most.
