If your looking for extra performance out of your 5000G APU. Here’s our guide to overclocking the 5700G. Start with the CPU & iGPU by setting fixed voltages and frequencies or using PBO +200MHz offset for iGPU. Our recommendation would be fixed 200~400MHz increase with 1.2V or 1250mV for iGPU, depending whether it’s stable at lower voltage. Lower is always better. For whatever reason, the 5000G series has poor all core boosting in stock configuration compared to there 5000 series counterparts. Though the same principle applies regarding CPU clock speeds. Set fixed voltage or use PBO with offset. The harder and higher you push things, the better CPU cooler you’ll need.
5000G series CPUs have very robust VSOC and are capable of running at 1.25V safely. Note: the GFX voltage cannot exceed the VSOC. They favour high memory speeds, but tight primary & secondary timings can also improve CPU and iGPU performance.
5000G series APUs favour high memory speeds, but tight primary & secondary timings can also improve CPU and iGPU performance. We used Crucial Ballistix 16GB (2x8GB) C16-18-18-38 @1.35V RAM for our stock CPU testing. Then overclocked to 4400MHz C18-22-22-22-42 @1.45V with fine tuned secondary timings for our OC results.
