GIGABYTE AORUS X399 Gaming 7 - Threadripper Overclocking Guide

Today we bring you news of another great overclocking guide, this time penned by the OC tem at GIGABYTE. The topic of the guide is overclocking the latest AMD Ryzen Threadripper platform that burst on to the scene just a week or so ago. The guide focuses on how to get a solid overclocking experience using the latest AORUS X399 Gaming 7 motherboard. Other hardware used in the guide includes a flagship AMD Ryzen Treadripper 1950X processor (he of the 16-cores and 32-threads) a 16GB GEIL DDR4-3200 kit and a Thermaltake 3.0 Extreme S AiO cooler. Here’s a sample of the guide intro:

We all fondly remember the glory days of AMD Athlon CPUs and their amazing 3000+ Venice CPUs. They were cool, efficient and were good overclockers. I got my first bug for binning CPUs in those days and really enjoyed trying to cool these and Opteron CPUs subzero in months and years to come. However, a dark period ensued and AMD fans had no choice but to lay dormant and wait for the return of the king and the king is back and his name is Ryzen Threadripper, all hail king Ryzen Threadripper!

AMD Ryzen Threadripper is built on the TR4 socket, it brings large IPC improvements, multi-threading and DDR4 support as well as increased energy efficiency — all at a competitive price. Did we mention this processor is the first ever consumer processor to offer 16 cores and 32 threads?! We’ve decided to create an OC guide so read on to learn how to get even more value out of your AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor.

The guide doesn’t offer too much in terms of extreme overclocking with LN2, but it does offer a great overview for anyone looking to push a TR 1950X chip with custom water cooling or an AiO cooler. GIGABYTE have also included plenty of notes for advanced users including several hints and tips specific to the AORUS X399 Gaming 7 motherboard. Enjoy!
