A couple of months ago, Takukou (the TecLab_China team) already excelled in overclocking the processors of the AM4 platform, but then it was an expensive and monstrous 16-core AMD Ryzen 9 3950X. This time, the overclocker set about breaking records on a processor in the lower price segment.
Having got his hands on a very successful copy of the Ryzen 3 3100 chip, the Chinese enthusiast was able to overclock it to a frequency of 5650-5700 MHz (depending on the benchmark) and thus won two gold medals in the model rank of the 4-core, 8-thread AMD chip of the same name.
According to the CPU-z utility, the voltage on the processor was 1.704 volts, and the CPU itself was installed in the top-end MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard and cooled with liquid nitrogen.
Benchmarks and results:
|wPrime – 1024m||1min 43sec 633ms||5700MHz|
|Geekbench3 – Multi Core||29729 points||5650MHz|
The Takukou test setup consisted of the following components:
- Motherboard — MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE (MS-7C34) Bios 1.80O1
- RAM — 2 x 8GB G.SKILL Trident Z Royal F4-4000C15-8GTRS
- OS – Windows 10
