Ryzen 2200G Video overclocking?

I recently built (first new build since 2012) a very modest ryzen 2200G system with an Asrock 450M pro motherboard. After reading reviews (especially the one here) and all I figured I could OC the video fairly easily up to 1,600 mhz and get it comparable to a 2400G. I installed win10, installed new drivers, flashed the mobo bios and I cannot get anything decent out of it. 1,600 or 1,400 freeze instantly when I load up anything 3d.

I'm using the AMD ryzen software to try to overclock if that matters, it has presets that go all the way to 1,600 by default for gaming or creation, so I figured that was very possible. A bit disappointed to get nothing extra out of this modest build.

Not a huge deal, but I would like to know if there is anything simple easy I may be overlooking, cause I am way out of date on these things.

Have you added a little extra voltage? CPU/GPU temps ok? Lowerd the ram speed down to test? Make sure its the CPU/GPU that is locking up, not something else as well.

That and over clocking is never guaranteed.

Just read another review saying they could only get 1.3Ghz out of the GPU at default 1.1 voltage.

"Without any voltage adjustments you should be able to push this up to around 1.3GHz. To go higher, you'll need to increase the APU GFX voltage and the SOC voltage. By default, both are set at 1.1v. For the best results, I bumped the APU GFX voltage to 1.3v and the SOC voltage to 1.2v."

the king of APU's got 1.5Ghz out of his 2400G and even showed off 1440p gaming with it.

might hit him up for overclocking advice. reddit name BadReIigion

think I read going over 1.5Ghz is not efficient for gaming

1500 is really the sweet spot for the 2200/2400. Any faster than that and the iGPU starts eating power quickly for not much gain. Same with heat production. It just gets so heavily memory bandwidth limited.

for the APUs, you should first concentrate on maximizing your DRAM speeds. Aim for the best timings you can get at 3200 speed, and test if you can nudge it up to around 3400 without sacrificing timings too much. DRAM speed increases reap the biggest rewards on those APUs.

Once you have the DRAM going as fast as possible, then try and nudge the APU to 1500Mhz. There is a hole between 1300mhz and 1500mhz where very few 2200/2400gs are stable. Bump the SOC voltage to 1.2 Volts and try and get the iGPU stable at 1500mhz. If you managed to get superior performance from your DRAM, say tight timings at 3466 or even 3600, you may gain a bit by pushing to 1550mhz or more, but you will pay the price in heat and power draw. Also, keep the SOC VRMs cooled! The APU, when heavily overclocked, can really draw a lot through the SOC VRMs and put them under stress. Put thermal pads and heat sinks on them to keep their temperatures reasonable.
