    yes, i am running a 2700x on x470 TUF (4+2) without any problems what so ever, cool and reliable (undervolated but not manually overclocked), and it has about the same power delivery as your motherboard
    But as i wrote, many users is pushing and pushing OC in stress test programs for hours, and the truth is that the VRM get very hot under these conditions with a weaker VRM setup and powerful CPU
    But play around, gaming and demanding video editing wont overheat your motherboard as long as you use common sense and reasonable voltage settings
    I would still recommend running your CPU with undervolting @stock clocks, Ryzen perform very good with "under voltage", in fact stock voltage is too high
    And to be honest, Ryzen stock already perform very good out of the box, and i cant really see the benefit to OC it for daily use other than for bragging rights in synthetic benchmarks
    Good luck

    Doesn't overclocking help increase performance, especially with programs that are cpu intensive like streaming and editing?

    Anyway to sum up what I was on about...

    That board is not meant to overclock 8 cores. If you must you can see if BIOS lets you disable some cores and then you can try to OC your faster cores. What I would do if I was you is consider a new CPU cooler if you are using the stock one and make sure XMP (DOCP) is enabled so your RAM runs at rated speed. If you want to experiment on getting better performance still I would look into overclicking the DIMMs/tighten timings and look into overclocking the Infinity Fabric.
    Of course an AIO would be better and we will go down that route soon, as for XMP(DOCP) I'm pretty sure it is enabled but again will have to check. Thanks for the input.

    i rest my case now

    With a AIO you CPU temp will be even lower with larger headroom for overclocking?

    The limiting factor is the power phase design on your motherboard not the CPU temperature

    Do as you wish its your hardware, some has to learn the hard way i guess

    Yes, you will also get faster to the supermarket driving the car at 230kmh instead of 200 kmh

    Happy new year BTW

    OC on B350-F

    OC on this board is fine, i'm running a 3600 on a B350-f and have it running stable 4.2 under water cooling just up your target frequencies then add a little voltage for stability and all will be fine.

    plenty of OC tutorials on youtube. check out Actual Hardcore Overclocking, Jayztwocents or Gamers Nexus for details

    i have to admit that i have to bite the dust here
    i ran my X470 TUF (4+2)/2700x overclocked today @ 8x4250mhz without any issues (with wraith prism)
    but i still think its a stupid idea to run Prime95 and other stress tests for hours with these low tier motherboards in combination with a overclocked 8 core processors (onboard components will get very toasty)
    everyday tasks and normal computer use = no problem
    however i rolled back to my old OC profile now again (i am old and like the sea calm)
    ps: i had to test because this made my curious, also nice cinebench R15 score 1960 with the OC
    summary: Its working, just don't overdo it

    Hmm jaystwocents and gamer nexus? aren't those two total morons?
