AMD's Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 Desktop CPUs have officially been launched and overclockers have put them through the test in some insane tests using LN2 cooling. Each Ryzen 5000 CPU, the Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X, & Ryzen 5 5600X has achieved some major feats which we are going to talk about in this article.

AMD Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 Desktop CPUs Achieve Various World Records & Crush All Competition - Ryzen 9 5950X Overclocked To 6.35 GHz Across All 16 Cores

The first result we have to talk about is without a doubt the world frequency record achieved by Taiwanese renowned overclocker, TSAIK, who pushed the Ryzen 9 5950X to an insane 6.35 GHz across all of its 16 cores. The CPU was pushed to this insane frequency on LN2 cooling and had voltage set to 0.15V. The motherboard used for testing was the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE which is one of the most powerful X570 motherboards you can get hands on.
