[Editor’s Note: After publishing this story, an AMD representative contacted us via email, pointing out that the 5000 WX-series is actually unlocked for overclocking, contrary to the statements below. The company also provided a link to public documents about Threadripper 5000 WX that states, in part, ” Select WRX80 motherboards from our ODM partners will support both memory and CPU overclocking for users looking to push the limits of their workstation even further.” The original story follows below.]

Last month, master overclocker and YouTuber SkatterBencher put up a video showcasing an eye-watering 4.6 to 4.8GHz all-core overclock on a Zen 3 64-core engineering sample featuring an unlocked multiplier for overclocking. With overclocking officially disabled on AMD’s production Ryzen Threadripper 5000WX Pro CPUs, this will be one of the only times we’ll ever see what AMD’s Zen 3 silicon can accomplish on the HEDT platform.

SkatterBench’s video is quite detailed, with a runtime of almost an hour to showcase five different ways to overclock this 64-core CPU, including a mix of PBO tuning, the use of AMD’s Curve Optimizer, and manual overclocking. Cooling was achieved with a custom loop, so no exotic cooling was used like liquid nitrogen.
