Key Points to Overclock Zen 2 & 3, Ryzen 3000 & 5000 Series CPU's. Settings are from @AMD & @1usmus and recommended CPU Options for High Performance Power Plan by them for Zen 2/Ryzen 3000 CPU's. Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) and PBO Stilt in in BIOS (option D). This in my opinion makes the best set it and forget it overclocks for Zen 2 and Zen 3 CPU's (Ryzen 3000 series and Ryzen 5000 series). It combines all the best OC up and down throttle features of the CPU and Motherboard and no messing around in Windows' AMD Ryzen Master. On an AMD 3700X with stock cooler (dirty) ALL of my cores typically go up to 4.397 GHz by themselves using these settings AND THEN CPU will throttle back down when not needed. CPU will do much better with better cooling. See my video below showing how/where to set these BIOS Options. BTW, time to clean my CPU cooler.
A. Set the DOCP/XMP Memory Profile or overclock your memory separately. Where Zen 2/Ryzen 3000 comfortably went up to 3600Mhz on DOCP/XMP settings, the Ryzen 5000 may go up to 3800 MHz on DOCP/XMP settings more easily without the Infinity Fabric Divider jumping to 2:1 after 3800 MHz. @Thracks of @AMD says memory can go up to 4000MHz if you have a really good sample without the latency/infinity fabric doubling, but this will be far from the norm.

BIOS UPGRADE ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WIFI) https://amzn.to/3jVB3nL OR MSI MAG B550 TOMAHAWK https://amzn.to/2Nw60j6 This is a much shortened version of the LIVE002 session. I fast-forwarded through 5 or 10 minutes of the Status Bar during the BIOS 2407 UPGRADE - JULY 2020/07/03, Improved system performance and DRAM compatibility, Update AM4 combo V2 PI 126.96.36.199" (So Don't Get Impatient or be scared). After BIOS is updated and you have your D.O.C.P. Memory Profile set and have restarted back into the BIOS, go to the AI Tweaker > AMD CBS menu. It doesn't matter which memory or Ryzen CPU you have, change these settings This will let the CPU OC on it's own. https://intensewebs.com/index.php/amd/amd-cpu/key-points-ryzen-oc

This is a FYI only update on my status. I just got out of the hospital in Humble, TX, in for most of the week and was ill the three weeks before that. I entered with Respiratory Distress, heartbeat at 160 (BPM) beats per minute (AFIB), and blood pressure sky high on admittance. I was diagnosed and left hospital with Atrial Fibrillation (AFIB) and Congestive Heart Failure. My blood pressure is getting back to normal as well as the beats per minute, taking all the prescriptions prescribed. Where I live, Harris County, has the highest positivity rate for COVID-19 in Texas.
A short film by me celebrating life. ALL video credits to the Artists and Videographers of @pixabay & @pexels. I made this video yesterday when feeling reflective of life. This is my youtube channel and my video:
The Asus Tuf Gaming X570-Plus Wifi, which I currently run, still doesn't have PPC Adjustment/Pstate0 settings. It has all the other settings to use with AMD's recommended high performance plan and 1usmus's plan. Without this, their OC scheme is invalidated or rather the Infinity Fabric will be operating at whatever Asus set it to. Pstate = 0 sets it to its highest. The Asus Crosshair has this feature, but not the cheap TUF series, but I don't know about the new TUF board.
IMHO, The Gigabyte Aorus X570 Master is the absolute best board/value available, though not cheap but I've owned it and it has the OC features. The new X570 Tomahawk looks good but I don't know if it supports the above OC features above. It is not listed in it's manual.
In part 1 we built a beautiful, clean streaming machine with an AMD Ryzen 3700X CPU, Asus TUF X570 Gaming-Plus (WiFi) motherboard & Asus TUF 1660 Super OC 6GB GPU using its new Turing die and newer NVENC encoder. In this video we’ll also discuss which nVidia GPU’s have the Turing nVENC Encoder. After the updates to the Machine, we are going to cover Streamlabs OBS (Open Broadcasting Software) and a bunch of overlays are linked directly below. At the very end will be a brief discussion why you should consider a B550 Motherboard instead and my B550 picks and also on July 7, 2020, AMD will release a couple of slightly upgraded processors with little speed increases.

Barrow HDM2280-PA Waterblock for NVMe 2280/22110 Size M2, Double Sided Auxiliary Cooling. It wasn't easy to put in between the CPU & GPU Waterblocks. It was difficult to drain and not get anything wet when removing the tubes. Was it worth it? YES! Will I do it again? NO! :) It depends on load as to how much the temperature difference is, but it is at least 21C degrees cooler on average.
UPDATE: I added a RADEON VII with EK Waterblock to the Comparison. A Discord User and myself tested our Radeon RX 5700 XT's today. We both ran a 15 minute Furmark test. PowerColor Liquid Devil 5700 XT vs AMD 5700 XT Anniv. Ed. with Bykski Water Block. Both had 2 X 360 Radiators and both ended up with inline water at 36C. He used Liquid Devil's UNLEASHED BIOS stock and I used AMD Anniv. Factory OC BIOS stock. He saved time not having to put on WB and I saved $50 and lost an hour. We called it a draw. Above are the results. ALL TESTS WERE RAN ON DEC. 21, 2019.
DETAILED BUILD GUIDE: We build a beautiful, clean streaming machine with an AMD Ryzen 3700X CPU, Asus TUF X570 Gaming-Plus (WiFi) motherboard & Asus TUF 1660 Super OC 6GB GPU using it's new Turing die and newer NVENC encoder. OBS (Open Broadcasting Software),
STAY TUNED for PART 2 where we get OBS and all the Streaming software running!
Please just fast forward through any parts you don't like. No need to be a Debbie Downer and leave negative comments. I already know there are issues with the audio in places. It was also late at the end of the build
This is a high air flow, budget case that can hold up to E-ATX size motherboards. I really like it. Watch the Video Review. I built the 3700X SUPER STREAMER in it. See the second video below. Solid Thumbs Up!
NZXT Nemesis Elite. I just couldn't put this New AMD 3700X CPU into this old case. It was running perfectly with valid licenses, was too dirty and was very nostalgic. I've had the case since 2004 or 2005. In the video I look at three budge cases so I don't have to tear apart this working computer. Look further below. I list out the parts I'm going to use in this streaming PC after thinking about it some.
