The problem with building a system with mostly new parts, is that you cannot easily be sure what is causing issues. All of my parts are new except for DVD drives, traditional hard disks (unused). and the case. Using W10 Pro Creators. Other components are in the signature

Two issues:
1: Aura I did not install any Aura related software for the motherboard, video card or memory until yesterday when I install Version 1.04.29. What I got were messages saying driver install failed, but the program completed, Upon opening Aura, I get the same error message. & it doesn't recognize the RGB memory from G. Skill. Clearly this Aura is broken and for Intel as well as AMD. Uninstalled it

2: Sporadic Code 8 errors. The motherboard is using the 0038 Bios so I could get the 2T command rate specified for the memory. Timings of 14 14 14 34 Voltage 1.35 Frequency 3200Mhz were entered manually cased on the memory rated settings for the [Trident Z RGB] F4-3200C14D-16GTZR. The symptoms are that during a sorta demanding graphics sequence in my game, the screen goes blank and I get Code 8/ In HWINFO64 I see no issues with temperatures or fan speeds.

Can a video card memory paging cause a motherboard code 8? The video card is new and also Asus.

I'm not trying to overclock past rated speeds until the AGESA 1.0.0.5 May update is implemented in the Bios

Any insights here?

From what we've seen a code 8 is pretty much a hard crash issue. I get a code 8 when my msi afterburner launches and freezes my pc then i get a code 8. From what we gather its related to, but not only to, instability, OS issues, etc etc. Its like your PC blackscreening without giving you a code on older platforms.

I'm using BLCK OC to use my rams at 3500Mhz with 131,4 BLCK and CPU to 4000Mhz with x30.5

I changed the BLCK from bios to 131,4 manually (Other CPU options at default and Ram frequency setting to 3500mhz) and used 30.5 for P0 state in Zenstates with 1.4 volt setting. The CPU frequency overclocked to 4000 Mhz but downclocking options didnt work anymore. (İ used X28 for P1 and X20 for P2 to downclocking)

Is there a way to use zenstates in different BLCk than 100 and i missed something? Any suggestions?

It should already do it. You just have to account for whatever BCLK you are running at when you select your multiplier.

A good thing to add to the Zenstates program would be to show what your BCLK is and the target frequency for the multiplier you have selected based on that. One already added a suggestion to allow BCLK changing in the Zenstates program.

The likely reason is that in these situation the Windows timer resolution is switched from 15 ms to 1 / 0.5 ms.

Well, you can go up using ZenState as soon as you set any offset for Vcore, so this is at least something.

So these spikes are in fact not real temperature, just momentary offset induced.

Could be but only does it with chrome/flash player since its built in unlike edge/firefox/etc. So i'm not worried about it at all not an issue.

You could try doing the same thing while the "Power Saver" profile is active. Causes my Chrome not to spike during Youtube playback, just as it doesn't cause +10 spikes + drops during Desktop idling.

Im in balanced now and does it for hp and balanced, but for me i don't get it at idle at all on desktop its pretty much chrome only. Your idle desktop might be due to windows aero though.

I use manual. SOC voltage doesn't change except for Vdroop anyway so I don't see the value in using an offset.
I tried the offset, because it looked as if fixed SOC would keep my Vcore from dropping at idle. Turns out I was wrong.

Unfortunately downclocking is not working for me, i have no issues with bclk 100 setting. I already changed the cpu ratios in zenstates for 131.4 blck and oc works, got 4000mhz but no downclocking at idle, just 4000 mhz.

A traditional crash would give me a blue screen and I could analyze it using Whocrashed.
This is a black screen. This results in a Code 8 memory LED on motherboard.

I thought I was kinda stupid to think it could be my video card, but I asked the question anyways.
If it is the ROG STRIX-RX480-O8G-GAMING graphics card, then what do I change. It is using its delivered speeds.

As for the memory... The difference between the Trident Z and the Trident Z RGB is the LEDs. They take power to run. While I'm using the rated settings, is there a Voltage tweak I should be using to compensate for the LEDs? I may ask this on the G. Skill forum. According to that forum G. Skill says only three RGB memory kits are currently compatible with the Ryzen X370 chipset at the moment
F4-2400C15D-16GTZR
F4-2400C15Q-32GTZR
F4-3200C14D-16GTZR

Please note that 3200MHz CL14 is only compatible with the 8GBx2 capacity configuration, and 8GBx4 is not recommended.
