If you are looking for an overclocking guideline by using AMD Ryzen Master then this article can be of help. In today’s article, we have shared a proper guideline about how to use AMD Ryzen Master software. Be with us till the end, and learn how to use this amazing software today.
Guidelines for Overclocking CPU with AMD Ryzen Master Software
Generally, overclocking is a kind of critical task to do as if you don’t do it properly, your CPU and other components can be damaged. But, with technological advancement, overclocking has become much easier than before.
Basically, the AMD Ryzen Master is used for temporary overclocking. After overclocking your CPU, if you restart your PC, the CPU will not be in the overclocking state anymore. But that’s not a big concern as you can again overclock it by a few clicks.
After navigating into AMD Ryzen Master, you will get four options at the left pane of your display.
- Creator Mode,
- Game Mode,
- Profile 1, and
- Profile 2.
Now, let’s find out how to use them to overclock your CPU.
Way 1: Use Creator or Game Mode
If you are willing to overclock your PC for editing-based work or gaming, then using Creator and Game mode will be the ideal choice for you. Before starting overclocking the CPU, you will need to download the Ryzen optimization pack that includes AMD CPU optimization files.
Here are the steps that you will need to do –
Step 1: Create a Restore Point
Before overclocking, it’s important to create a backup of your current system. It will help you to recover if you face any issues during overclocking. To do so, press the Windows key > type Create a restore point > navigate to System properties > System protection > select boot drive > OK. The restore point will be created.
Step 2: Start Overclocking
Now, navigate to AMD Ryzen Master. Now, click on Game Mode or Creator Mode. There you will get four options, Eco, PBO, Auto OC, and Manual. Click on PBO, and there you will need to change the PPT (Package Power Tracking), TDC (Thermal Design Current), and EDC (Electrical Current Limit) values. Change the value according to your need, and click on Apply and test.
On the next window, a small stress will be performed and then you can check the performance of your CPU there. If the changes pushed the CPU too far then you can change the value to keep it in control.
Way 2: Use Profile 1 or 2
After navigating to Profile 1 or 2, you will get four options there, Eco mode, PBO, Auto OC, and manual. Generally, PBO or Precision Boost Overdrive and Auto overclocking are used as they are the simplest way to overclock your CPU. By using them, you won’t need to do anything extra, but if you want to do manual overclocking, then –
- Hover on the Manual option.
- Now, take a look at the Croes Section.
- There, you will need to increase each core by 50, once you are done, click on Apply & Test button.
- Then the software will do a small stress test, and if the limit goes beyond your CPU capability, the software may crash or revert the changes you have done.
- If everything goes fine, then the software will be OK and you can see the changes in your CPU performance there.
- Do the same thing until you reach your desired clock speed, and get the maximum output from your CPU.
