Ryzen 5 1600 (using stock cooler) crashes after some time in cinebench/running slow

Hi all,

So I build this system yesterday and I am trying to push the CPU as far as possible using around 1.3500 Volts (I want it to be a long term overclock, with a long CPU lifespan).
I set the clock to 3.875GHz without problem... I only noticed something: When putting the voltage on 'manual' mode (on 1.3500 Volts), I only get 1.545 (1.6GHz). What I did to solve this is put it on 'offset' mode and then it would just did an offset of +0.1185 so it would reach around 1.3500 Volts.

Now that I had fixed that, I ran Cinebench. With 3.9 GHz, Cinebench would crash on the first try.
But putting my clocking frequency on anything below that, (even 3.825 or 3.850 Volts), it would crash the THIRD time and I do not know why. Is it because of a bug or is it just not stable? I ran AIDA64 for half an hour without experiencing problems so am I just running it not too long enough?

Should I give my CPU more Voltage/lower clock frequency, or is it just some bug which I can ignore in Cinebench? Because the first two runs in Cinebench work perfectly fine with my CPU on 3.875 GHz and I got 1276cb score out of it VS. the standard (before overclocking) 1125cb score.

So, is my system just stable and is it just a bug that Cinebench R15.0 crashes on the third run? Or is it not stable?

Kind regards,

Vincent Stoter

Edit: suddenly AIDA64 indicates a "Hardware failure detected" and stops the stresstest. I have no idea why my system is not completely stable

  1. Check to see if your temperature is under 60C

    It goes upto 67C and then just stops

    Sounds like you just need to do some stability testing. If your system is crashing, you either need to lower the clock, or raise the voltage. I suggest Realbench stability test for a minimum of one hour, two would be better. AIDA64 or OCCT are good as well, but I only use those for machines that will be chewing on a lot of data. (my work machines).

    Some screenshots of your bios settings would be helpful to help diagnose the problem, and maybe give some suggestions.

    Thanks, I was just playing around, lowering clock speed while keeping the voltage. Works okay-isch, sometimes randomly stops with AIDA64 (but no crash) and sometimes it is just stable. I will test this upcoming weekend my pc again (I have school throughout the week)

  5. I personally like Intel burn test. If it survives 10 passes of that it should be reasonably stable, and that's relatively quick. You could test with that first, then when you find something that appears stake, test further when you've got time.

    I think right now I'm right at 1.3 volts with 3.7ghz which seems decent. Maybe I'll try to push a little further, but it's not bad where it is.

  6. Thanks everybody! I have done some testing with different settings and setting voltage on my Asus Prime X-370 PRO to 'manual' and 1.3500V does not work for me. It will only limit itself to 1.6GHz and limit its own voltage and is surely not working well
    Putting it on 'offset mode' and +0.1185V (adding this to the stock voltage will get me up to 1.35 Volts) and it will not limit its clockspeed and voltage.
    I have solved the problems now permanently by myself by just experimenting and trying some settings and have settled my AMD Ryzen 5 1600 with stock cooler to 1.35 V and 3.825 GHz (3825MHz) for a long-term overclock.

    Thanks for the help anyway! :D
