Hello. I recently bought more up to date rig and since its Ryzen 5 1600x I wanted to squeeze some more juice out of it, so I managed to increase GHz to 3,9, but in this Gigabyte's mobo bios there's no option to set cpu voltage, there's only option for Dynamic Vcore (DVID) | Dynamic Vcore SOC (DVID). When I looked into HWiNFO64 voltages were i think out of the scale sitting at 1.412V and not dropping below 1.4V and Idle temp was around 55-60C, so I changed both of those above options to +0,000 which reduced voltage to 1.375V. Since it's my very first journey with Overclocking, I did not wanted to raise anything since I was afraid of frying parts. Only thing I changed was Dram mem. to 1,395 since it wasn't stable at stock settings @3200MHz

Summary: How to play with Dynamic Vcore (DVID) and Dynamic Vcore SOC (DVID) - what does it change?
What temps are completly safe for longer run, take in count I'm usually sitting at pc for 10ish hours daily.
Also I'm not sure if temps are fine since they go all the way up to 70-75C in stress and max recorded was 87C, I think it's because of high voltage and not the best air cooling?
Can you explain me on how to find sweet spot for voltage and what to increase what not?

Rig.

Ryzen 5 1600x 3.90GHz
GTX 1050 (ignore this, replacing soon)

Even at 87°C your CPU is ok it will start to throttle around 100° and the Ryzen 1600X can use up to 1.45V. When checking temps you'll notice that the tctl is higher than the tdie, tdie is the core temp tctl has an offset added to it so your real temp is actually the tdie temp reading. I'm not that familiar with GIGABYTE BIOS, if there's no manual setting for voltage then you can use dynamic and you should be able to set a positive or negative offset, whichever gets you to your desired overclock and maintains stability.

Should I touch Vcore SOC or leave it on auto and change other one? I'm completly new to OCing and not so familiar with terms yet

SOC should be fine on auto, it's the V_Core you need to change for your OC
