The performance reviews of AMD’s cheapest Zen 2 based Ryzen CPU, the Ryzen 3 3100, went live yesterday. The reviews showed that the chip is a decent performer and comes fairly close to the once flagship Core i7-7700K from Intel back when they were still releasing quad cores as flagship parts. Renowned overclocker, TSAIK, has pushed the Ryzen 3 3100 to its limit, clocking the chip just under 6 GHz on LN2 647903 b21 cooling.

The overclocking session from TSAIK yielded the highest frequency for AMD’s Ryzen 3 3100 CPU which was reported at 5.923 GHz. The ranking currently holds the top spot in the ‘CPU Frequency Score’ category for the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 CPU.

TSAIK performed the overclock on an MSI X570 Tomahawk motherboard. The MSI Tomahawk AM4 series are fan favorites, offering a good mix of features at a reasonable price point. The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 was supplied with 1.45 Volts which is not a standard operating voltage and requires lots of cooling such as LN2 to keep the processor under control. You can find the validation of the Ryzen 3 3100 5.9 GHz overclock at HWbot in the screenshot below (submission link):

The 5.92 GHz overclock is also just a few MHz shy of the fastest Zen 2 based Ryzen CPU overclock which the Ryzen 9 3950X holds the record for. The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X was overclocked to 6.041 GHz, also By TSAIK, on an MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard.
