    AMD OC guide thread

    The first of our OC guides is now live. This one is aimed primarily at extreme overclocking, but has some good info for normal usage, too. Expectations for overclocking frequencies and voltage requirements are all defined, as well as handy hints for troubleshooting via motherboard POST codes. A worthy read:

    A normal overclocking guide may follow at a later date - assuming there is something of merit to write about. CPU overclocking is limited by the architecture itself. Unless yields improve, 4GHz is the expected frequency for most samples. Memory overclocking is limited by AMD's firmware.

    Be sensible when purchasing a memory kit for the platform. Stick with kits rated below DDR4-3000, and bear in mind that kits binned on Intel platforms may not achieve their rated timings and frequency on the AMD platform.
