The AMD Ryzen 3 3100 is capable of going much higher than its official 3.9 GHz boost clock, overclockers have confirmed. Specifically, the 65 W and Zen 2 processor has been shown to top out at almost 6.0 GHz, an overclock of over 50%.

The Ryzen 3 3100 has been overclocked to almost 6.0 GHz. Based on the Zen 2 architecture and a 7 nm manufacturing process, the Ryzen 3 3100 has a 3.9 GHz base clock by default, along with a 3.6 GHz base clock.

Overclocked by the Extreme Overclockers of Taiwan (TSAIK), the retail chip was benchmarked in an MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI (MS-7C84) motherboard running BIOS 1.0AT1 and 8 GB of single-channel DDR4-SDRAM. Using a multiplier of 59.25x and a core voltage of 1.45 V TSAIK was able to push the Ryzen 3 3100 to 5.923 GHz, but only with Liquid nitrogen (LN2).

Hence, most systems will be incapable of keeping the Ryzen 3 3100 at almost 6.0 GHz. However, Tom's Hardware reports that the quad-core chip maintained a stable 4.5 GHz with water cooling, which is a considerable improvement over its stock boost clock. 6.0 GHz is not much in the world of extreme overclocking though, where numerous processors have been pushed beyond 8.0 GHz.
