Running completely stable at 3.98GHZ, 1.475V, and ram at 3324Mhz. Didn't want to push the Blck any further because of my 2x 1080 GPUs I don't want to loose Pcie 3.0.

 

What is your RAM frequency originally rated for?

 

Because I can't seem to get above 2666MHz on my similarly rated Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM.

I have G.Skill CL14 3200Mhz.

Very nice score. But I am close. tongue.gif

Whenever I try to increase the memory speed, my PC goes into a boot loop and displays F9. Also, after I tried and failed to set the RAM to its XMP profile (had to press the "reset" button on the board), I now can't get my CPU (Ryzen 1700) to overclock at all. Before, it was completely stable at 4 GHz and 1.4 V. Any help is greatly appreciated!
I have the same RAM with the K7 mobo. I've never had any issue getting 3200MHz. I just set the speed and timings manually (don't use XMP), using F3 bios. Just set the multiplier to 32, change timings to manual, set timings to 16-18-18-18-36, set RAM voltage to 1.35V. If that doesn't work for you, then I would think something funny is going on. confused.gif

EDIT: if you can't even OC any more, sounds like something in your bios got messed up. Maybe reset to factory defaults, reboot, try again. If That doesn't work, you might need to clear CMOS via removing the battery for ~10 minutes. If that doesn't work, you could always flash to a different bios version, then flash back to what you want (e.g. flash F2 then flash back to F3).

Don't use XMP!? Hmmmm...

XMP works out of the bat for me. No need to touch timings as well as Voltages so long as I stay 100 BCLK.

Dam I think this question may be unanswerable but I'll give it a shot.

I got Trident Z ram 3200mhz CL 14, 8gb x 2. Samsung b die and all that.

Will either the Gaming 5 or K7 be able to run this at 3200? Does the K7's external clock generator mean better chance at running 3200 ram or is it equally a crap shoot between the Gaming 5 and K7 in terms of ram support? Googling tells me there is no guarantee or even a strong chance, it's all random, but most of those threads are old, surely bios updates have improved matters?

There is no support guarantee. I have been trying to push 3600 on my Kit for the past 2 weeks where other people seem to have no issues with the same exact kit.
post #1029 of 1632
Yeah I'm running F3. Anything else I should be doing? Like manually entering in the timings?

As long as the CPU is capable, they both should allow 3200. Have used both.

BCLK gen is for higher clocks or tighter subtimings we don't have access to yet.

3600 is different from 3200. wink.gif

Same as above. 3200 seem to be CPU-bound with known capable kits.

Try not to mix Core and RAM tweaks on a single BIOS save.
