Alot of the issues people are currently experiencing are entirely down to the BIOS. If by chance your PC can boot at 4.0Ghz and at 1.3-1.45v and crashes it can more likely be the iteration of your bios as opposed to the chip itself.
Some people get lucky find a good pair memory that works great in unity of the processor and board, others don't and have to wait out what they can get their hands on. I'm hoping eventually I get a BIOS that plays much better for me.
The stability and overclockability of this processor is heavily tied to the RAM. I intend to try and find the most stable timing configuration eventually and then overclock. However the FMA3 based crashes are too problematic at the moment for me to pursue testing. I wouldn't be able to decipher what the BCCODE error was occurring on.
Most identical systems overclock exactly the same on R7 processors.Edited by SpeedyVT - 3/24/17 at 1:20am
