AMD Ryzen 5 5600X & Ryzen 9 5900X Review

Overclocking

We’ve long argued that overclocking a big waste of time on modern CPUs and even GPUs. The automatic gains you get by simply applying a better cooler is often all you need to do. However, if you have a reason to lock in that speed, you’ll be happy to see we hit 4.8 GHz 1.3375v all cores on the 5600X. However, the larger core count of the 5900X kept that to 4.6 GHz 1.2825v all cores, although that’s still impressive.

As a child still in my 30's, I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
