LIVE: AMD vs. GN Extreme Overclocking 7950X: Learning How to Overclock

Sponsor: Buy the be quiet! Silent Wings 4 Pro fans on Amazon
This stream features AMD’s XOC team, and although we’re saying it’s a “versus,” it’s actually more of an opportunity to learn about the inner workings of AMD’s Ryzen CPUs — from stock performance to overclocking. Bill and Amit of AMD will be answering common questions, like “safe voltages,” thermal design, which voltages and settings to pay attention to in BIOS, and AMD EXPO. We’ll also learn how extreme overclocking, even with liquid nitrogen, actually informs the design and engineering processes at AMD for its Ryzen CPUs. We will be using an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X for all of this. AMD is not sponsoring this stream nor is it financially engaged with GN in any capacity.


At the end of the stream, Steve will be resetting BIOS and trying to match the AMD XOC team’s score! But he’ll be on a time limit!
