Under the assumption that the Riemann hypothesis is true, von Koch deduced the improved asymptotic formula $\theta(x) = x + O(\sqrt{x} \times \log^{2} x)$. We prove when $\theta(x) = x + \Omega(\sqrt{x} \times \log^{2} x)$, then the Riemann hypothesis is false. Keyphrases: Chebyshev function, Nicolas inequality, Riemann hypothesis, prime numbers
