Test Setup and Overclocking

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Review

Test Setup

AMD Ryzen 5 3600
ASUS Prime X570-Pro (BIOS 1201)
G.Skill Trident Z 3600 MHz
Corsair Vengeance RGB 4600 MHz
Corsair MP500 M.2 - OS Drive
Aorus PCIE4 NVME - Storage Speed Tests
Nvidia RTX 2080Ti (ForceWare 430.86)
Corsair HX1000i
Corsair H150i
Corsair ML Fans


The Ryzen 5 3600 comes out of the box with a boost clock close to its ultimate performance, but you can squeeze a little more out if you have the cooling and time to fettle it to its maximum. You can either commit to DDR4 performance which gave us 4600 MHz with a 4.14 GHz CPU overclock, or you can put all your eggs in the CPU basket which led to us obtaining a 4.3 GHz CPU overclock with 3600 MHz DDR4.
