Hello,

I am disappointed with my Ryzen 1700. I lost the silicon lottery and got a bad CPU. It does not overclock well. I am stuck with 3700MHz. With Nzxt Kraken x62, it is 45°C at idle and 75°C under load. My vcore is 1.25v. With anything less this vcore, the system is not stable. CPU Load line calibration is at level 2, VDDSCR_SoC voltage is 1.1v and its calibration is at level 5. I wanted to set  VDDSCR_SoC LLC to level 2 but some people reported on the other forums that their CPU died because of VDDSCR SoC's load line calibration was 2 or 3.

I tried reinstalling CPU cooling system (because I thought it did not sit well onto the CPU) and also tried with the stock cooler and a Noctua cooler. Still running so hot. At least for me. Also tried to reapply the  thermal paste a thousand times. Still so high temps.

Before I bought Ryzen 1700, I had read and watched some reviews and I thought that it would be fine with gaming. The difference with 7700k did not seem so high.  Also, I just bought a new 165hz monitor and now I am reading 8700k reviews and it is whetting my appetite. Apart from this, I don't do video editing etc. but I run several virtual machines from time to time. So, 8700k should still be enough as my main use will be gaming.

Would it be a greedy action to sell my current CPU and motherboard and get a 8700k CPU and motherboard? Financially, I am fine with it. But still ... I don't want to be greedy.

Love to help but I am Intel/EVGA all the way...

Hopefully someone will want a good deal and take her off your hands

Good Luck

I don't know about amd but with intel vcore 1.4 or lower is perfectly fine, and only above 80c do I have a heat problem.

If you want to switch go ahead its up to you, make sure you load up on ram for vr machines and cores do help.

Not too sure about the 8th gen just yet as I haven't spent much time reading the tech documents, but for the 7th gen it's 1.5v though most people like to stay at 1.45v or below.

8th gen is a little tricky give it's power deliverance, though it really isn't showing it's self consuming more power than a 7700k. But given that people are still speculative that it's just a 7700k with two extra cores (unconfirmed), as long as you keep it under 90C and 1.45v, no worries.

Especially if you delid it, which I'm still not sure why anyone who guys a 7th gen or 8th gen intel CPU wouldn't delid it.
