    If you are not facing any sort of stability / other issue issue then don't unnecessarily update bios.

    Guys I upgraded my system and naturally have dumb queries. You see I bought RAMs of 3000 MHz, but my board supports up to 2100 MHz only, so I need to OC the RAMs. Now I know I need to use the XMP profile, but while selecting XMP from BIOS this message pops up, and I am not sure which one to choose. I am told to click on the Yes option but won't it somehow OC the CPU too? I only want to OC the RAMs for now, nothing else.

    Basically what will be the differences between choosing Yes and No?

    OCed my Ryzen 1600 to 3.7Ghz all cores at 1.275V and RAM running at 2933Mhz. Can reach 3.8Ghz and above with higher voltages but temps are crossing 65C at those frequencies with stock cooler when running prime95 which I'm not comfortable with.

    ^Thanks for sharing. The guy in 1st video is running 3.85Ghz at 1.38V which is high IMO. Mine reached 3.85Ghz with less voltage IIRC, though I ran the stress tests for not more than 30mins. I try to stay below 1.35V and in our ambient temperatures, staying under low temps is also difficult. I'm happy with 3.7Ghz as of now with max temps of ~65c under load.

    the you got a great chip there for gaming and other works. most of the applications can't heat a cpu like prime95.
