What is the newest BIOS available here at the mo?
As well I was wondering if anyone elses RGB has stopped working? When I first started the PC up the RGBs and the strips plugged into the headers worked but now I have nothing. They are enabled in the BIOS.
And last thing, what speed should I be able to run my F4-3600C17D-16GTZR at?
If you have not installed Aura yet, that may be the issue.
You do not necessarily want the latest test bios. You want the one that makes the most sense for you, and in particular your memory. I have a slightly different kit than yours, but I think yours is Samsung B-Die as well, which would be a good thing. That means 0083 is not needed since you should be able to run at 1T and that version is for 2T.
You don't need 0082 either since your DRAM is not on the list of those this patch included.
That leaves you with running:
1) 1002 - (last official UEFI)
2) 0079 - AGESA 1004a test version, with bugfixes
3) 0081 - 0079 + ProcODT = 53.3 ohm
Of these, it really is just a matter of what you want.
Oh yes, I should add that clearing CMOS with the button on the backplate BEFORE changing your UEFI / Bios version is suggested.
As to speed, try entering a memory speed of 2400 MHz to start, and timings of something in the neighborhood of 17-18-18-38 (your rated timing on that memory). Reboot and see if it works. You can then start stepping up from there. I would suggest doing this in gradual steps.
If you want to hit 3200MHz you may well need to bump up your DRAM voltage. If you do, it may be wise to at the same time increase Vboot voltage to the same value. You could try 1.375 or 1.4 volts if you need to.
Best of luck and have fun.Edited by CeltPC - 4/22/17 at 3:25pm
