Ah, sorry.. That looks like the RW-Tool doesn't yet support the 300-series chipset SMBus host frown.gif
Another option would then be to put the DIMMs into another machine, which is supported by RW-Everything.

I wish I would have the time to write such tool... :-(

Score at 4.1 + 3300-CL14 is 1800 - 1817, so my former run used slower RAM settings. Which goes to show that RAM frequency impacts CB scores.

Interestingly CB lists the CPU as 4.0 is Elmor's Zenstate program is used to up the frequency.

95c or real temp or 95c or reported temp?

More NVMe testing.

Alright...I messed around with my NVMe drive last night (MydigitalSSD BPX 240gb).

This is all on a clean install of W10 Creators update, and immediately clean install of the newest AMD chipset drivers.

Just a brief bit of history, I was getting pretty bad write speeds on W10 anniversary edition, default MS NVMe driver. I could improve the speed by ticking the "buffer flushing" option in windows. I could also improve speeds by installing OCZ drivers or Samsung drivers.

With the Creators update I already say some improved write speeds off the bat. Not 100% at what my drive can perform, but already nearing "adequate."

Installing the OCZ NVMe driver saw some improvement in write speeds, but for some reason my computer would stop shutting down with this driver installed. Windows would "shut down", but my computer would remain on drawing 150watts from the wall indefinitely. I would have to manually shut down.

Installing the Samsung NVMe driver got me back up to proper speeds immediately, shut down issues resolved, etc. I managed to find a guide on Reddit about how to install/extract the Samsung NVMe drivers without a Samsung drive. See below for link to these drivers (64bit only).



So I'm sticking with the Samsung NVMe driver for now.

I haven't had any corruption issues/etc. when messing with installing these different NVMe drivers, so don't be too afraid to play around if you are brave.

Thank you anyway thumb.gif

If it wasn't for you we wouldn't know where to look for the problem. At least now we can start somewhere, and maybe end up fixing the sticks!

Hey guys!

I've noticed there's been issues with G.Skill RAM. I havent been following the thread for the past week, but is there anything I should avoid or be cautious of going forward?

To start, if you are using the RGB kits avoid Asus Aura or the G.Skill equivalent software.

It would appear that aura and, presumably, the gskill led control software has the ability to corrupt spd on rgb ram sticks as it alters the spd to change the led effects.

I'd recommend not using any led controlling software for now if you have rgb ram.

There is nothing big wrong with Gskill Ram. Actually they are performing best on Ryzen. But be aware of the RGB version of Gskill. It could mess up your SPD when conflicting between rgb softwares. For now don't use any rgb software till further details/fixes.

Yeah, the modules themselves are great. It's the software that's the issue.

Looking at the evidence so far, and with the right software, the spd corruptions might be recoverable.

There's probably even a way to match the serial again. It's on the box.

Man, from a RAM overclock point of view, I'm freaked out at trying anything more than 2666
