I just got the chip a few days ago, and I used AMD ryzen master to overclock it manually. 4.425 gigahertz on all cores. voltage 1.2375 .

I ran Cinebench 4025 points and single core 516. The temperatures never really got above 70 c during cinebench.

My question is if I'm not going above 70 c and my voltage is low is there still a chance my CPU will have degradation from the overclocking. 1.2375 doesn't seem like it's too high of a voltage but I'm no expert any advice would be gratefully appreciated thank you.

Depends on LLC.

You need to keep in mind that manual voltage on Matisse disables on die LDOs and power gating which means that the maximum voltage you can sustain is lower.

Im runing a ryzen 3600 with Tomahawk mag b550 MB and 16 GB 3600 speed memory. Not sure what My LLC is set to. I need to do more reading about this stuff, i dont even know what LLC is realy.

I was wrong about my temps it never gos past 63C when doing cinebench not 70c.

decided to lower my frequencie from 4.425 down to 4.4 and my volts from 1.2375 to 1.225 . I really don't want to damage the processor so I'm hoping the low voltage will improve my chances.
I get the feeling from reading there's two schools of thought on static over clocks for the ryzen 3, some say it's okay other say don't do it.
My ryzen chip is new and I imagine the silicone is it better quality, so maybe it can withstand overclocking more so than the newer chips.
Plus low thermals and low voltage I've gotten pretty decent scores on cinebench so I know it's functioning well.

At 1.2375v you are fine. The chip still downclocks and lowers voltage when not under load, so you should have no negative impact. Have fun with your chip and don't worry about it.

Max v-core is 1.35v, so your fine with that voltage.

cool so I can push the clocks more as long as i dont go over 1.35v? i had up to 4.5
