X370 Three way shoot out motherboard review - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
I ran Cinebench at 4.0GHz and scored 1736. I reran it at 4.2GHz and scored 1809. So it did improve slightly. Honestly though I was able to break 1850 by bumping my memory up to the 2400MHz (dual rank dims unfortunately) and dropping the timings to CL12.

They updated the graphs.

Not stable but further affirms that the Ryzen 1700 received was a great sample.

I guess...1.56V is going to kill your chip eventually.

It isn't going to run at that. That was for all of 3 minutes. Maybe under phase change or LN2.biggrin.gif

MSI has issued an updated BIOS for the X370 Gaming Pro Carbon that improves its ability run higher speed memory. They did not correct the sagging system bus issue. They may not be able to without hardware revision.

I don't have a Carbon so being the curious type... what is the sagging system bus issue?

It is where the system bus does not run at 100MHz. For example it runs at 99.8MHz. When multiplied out to get your CPU frequency it becomes more exaggerated. The CPU normally might run at 3.0GHz however with this problem would be running 2.994Ghz. This gets worse when you raise the multiplier to say 40.

This is not only possible on MSI's X370 Gaming Pro Carbon, I have seen this happen to other boards for years now. It is more of an annoyance than anything. Stock benchmarks will show that the board with sagging system bus is a smidge slower. It shouldn't effect the ability to overclock however it will magnify the higher your multiplier is set.

"sagging" system bus? Since when was this a thing?
Lots of motherboards of differing brands and chipset types have been like this for years.
It's not a "problem" it's just the speed of the bus on some boards/chipsets isn't locked to a whole number.
You sound like those people who sued harddrive manufacturers about hard drive space and won. LOL
