Re: Wait for Ryzen 4000?

If I overclock, the power draw goes up quite sharply.  An increase from stock to 5 GHz uses almost 50% more power and the temperature increases by about 20C (air cooling).  Performance gain is about 15%, and I have slow RAM.

One thing that will cook the processor is heavy AVX2 instruction stress tests.
