Looks like Ryzen 5 3600 has still left something in it’s arsenal after Intel Core i5-12600K stole the gaming benchmark show. This time around AMD’s cheapest 6 core Zen2 CPU brings huge salvation for budget Raptoreum miners through exceptionally big Level3 cache compared to Intel counterparts. Let’s find out Ryzen 5 3600’s hidden mining potential after best Raptoreum settings revealed by mysterious Middle Eastern enthusiast.
New YT channel by name Minimize Mining Build Rig has finally unlocked the true CPU mining potential of Ryzen 5 3600 after settings the right overclocking settings with careful method and enormously good cooling. So the specific motherboard that author has chosen is an amazing MSI B550-A PRO coupled with 3200MHz 16GB dual channel memory kit.
Large graving part for miners is a precise core clock speed for Ryzen 5 3600 which is set at 4.2GHz firmly on all cores. DRAM overclocking setting is adjusted with XMP 2.0 profile 1 at solid CL16 timings and 3200MHz speed. Usually, most miners leave DRAM settings on default but XMP 2.0 also help Zen2 CPU to increase Infinity Fabric connectivity between I/O, chiplets and CCX (Core Complex).
Interestingly, miner from middle east also tweaks voltage settings to save power and keep temperatures in check. Within MSI B550-A PRO motherboard’s BIOS settings the miner can play with undervolted presets where decisive miner’s CPU core voltage is set at 1.2500V and unbelievably shocking 1.1375V was given to CPU NB/SoC Voltage variable. Incredibly, HiveOS mining operating system also provides big advantage for utilizing all cores during mining process.
Remarkable achievement is sealed by Ryzen 5 3600 by getting 1800 h/s on average right after submitting more than two thousand shares using flockpool stats. On the other hand, Ryzen 5 3600X gets a whopping 1840 h/s Raptoreum hashrate after similar 4.2GHz overclock settings. Somehow, budget CPU mining folks couldn’t get a monster king of the hill Ryzen 9 5950X but still Ryzen 5 3600 may give nearly $1 in USD per day.
