Well I'm only running at 3.8Ghz on my 1700x. Should I just increase the voltage (currently at 1.312V)?

Yes, by identificating IC' you can find out the chip manufacturer, not the ram manufacturer, there is a diference...

Those are quite low latencies, if you want more speed you should set them higher (something like 18-18-18-39) and when you achieve higher clocks try to lower the latencies again. Anyway, with those Hynix IC's i woulden't expect very high oc... My guess is you won't be able to boot with 2993 strap, only with 2666. But that's fine, because you can use bclk to oc the ram. Just keep an eye on your targeted cpu speed by increasing the bclk...

Concerning the cpu, yes - you should increase the voltage (try 1.4v with LLC3 for 4Ghz) if you want more mhz, than test for stability by playing your favorite games, running prime95 or IBT, after that if your system is stable lower the voltage as much as you can without causing instability.

If you wanna push higher. wink.gif

Should RAM voltage and SOC voltage be played with? Do they affect RAM OC stability? My RAM is currently at the rated 1.35V and SOC is on Auto. I'm trying to avoid BCLK overclocking as I'm using P-States to OC and changing BCLK will break this.

I thought that I read using LLC 3 or above is not advised due to high VRM (?) voltage spikes being bad for the CPU or motherboard. Am I misinformed?

LLC 3 should be fine, if you're worried try just upping vcroe and LLC 1-2. As for ram I can bump mine up to 1.37 and run 2666mhz with the same timings as 2400 (14-15-15-15-32). But idk how stable it is, currently testing that now. thumb.gif

As alucardis666 said, LLC3 is nothing you should be worried about because CH6 has high quality VRM's, especially if you have any active cooling for them or simply a good air-flow in your case...

Ram and/or SoC voltage can be changed without problem in case you need more stability, but IMO - anything above 1.4v for ram and 1.15v for SoC is a bit high for 24/7 usage... If you can't oc via bclk than try to select 2666 strap with loose latencies and increased ram voltage (try 1.35-1.4v and 1.4-1.45v for boot).

Where are the CPU overclocking and voltage results posted? Why is the OP just ram overclocks?

How far have you guys been able to push the 1700x on this board?

Wow, nice. wink.gif
Can you run Cinebench?

Installing 003 was a bit bumpy. I did a Clear CMOS and I checked if 90 MHz works with my system and a whole bunch of PCIe cards (including GPU), but I do not remember in which order I did that.

After 003 installed the new EC (what does that stand for) I got a black screen, POST code 0D and the white boot LED was lit. Soft-off worked at once (no need for 5 s push). Turned back on and got a code A9 (or maybe A2?) and black screen again, but I noticed that the HDD LED blinked before. I speculated that maybe Windows was loading and only the graphic-card didn't work, but a push on soft-off clarified that to be an wrong assumption, because it turned off the PC right away.

Turned back on, pushed Clear CMOS, turned back on again and now it's working.

I had some hopes that the 90 MHz early boot thing might help with those PCIe cards that are not detected properly in the chipset connected PCIe slots, but unfortunately it did not.

On stock IT shows 1.55v.
But when I load OC profile (pstates), I get the right readings again!
