I'm planning one overclocking my Ryzen 5 3600X to 4.4 Ghz and want to know how many volts to give it

AMD still hasn't changed voltage limits from the last generation.

1.35v everyday safe.

1.4v max down from 1.45v because chips were dying.

The stock voltage profile will ignore those but they also use different voltage for each core and can control the voltage ramp up/down in the MS not sustained voltage like overclocking does.

You should also note you will be limited to whatever the worst core per CCX is capable of reaching, buying an "X" model no longer guarantees better overclocking since all Ryzen are binned based on what the best core can reach and what all cores can reach under stock voltage.

Are you sure you will get to work that high?

Well that's the boost clock

Yes and the boost clock of the 3800X is 4.5GHz.

But that doesn't mean you can get it to work at 4.5GHz on all cores. lol

It will barely go over 4.3GHz at best with an manual OC.

And if the 3600X can sustain an all core TB of 4.3-4.2GHz according to the below, i don't know how much faster would it be pushing it to 4.4GHz.
