Intel but I don't know which one is better, it seems Killer is better for games but I don't know if that's true or if the difference is significant

@ kushorange

Ive got the same X-flare and tried it with one 1800x and several 1700x (and 1700) but got stuck with 2933 @ 14,14,14,14,34 (even lower but that doesnt sustain deep burnin tests)
And got just 1 1700 (kept that 1 hahaha ) that gives me a full 3200 @ 14----,34 on the same (mine) K7 , so either u should satisfy with 2933 and hope the new bios will be more configurable
That is mem-settings to be tuned ,coz i realy think Giga tells me "We think this is the best for u and order me to put on sunglasses at night"

Thanks for the info,

Im gonna play around with settings tonight and see if I can get 3200 to post. Otherwise ill stick with 2933 and maybe try to up it via BLCK.

Either way Ill be happy if 2933 is max I can get at 14cas, and will wait for BIOS updates that may bring it up to full 3200mhz.

thanks again

I am using Intel.

Only because I had bad experiences with my previous E2200 though. I know E2500 is probably much better and has no driver issues, but...

Killer has one hell of a traffic management though.

1. Enter BIOS, set Voltages, timings (16-16-16-36) and PCI-E mode to 2.0
2. Save & Exit
3. Enter BIOS and Cold Boot
4. Set BCLK to 112.5
5. Save & Exit
6. Enter BIOS and Cold Boot
7. Set CPU Multi to 35
8 Save & Exit
9. QCode E6

What am I doing wrong?

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?

my corsair lpx 3200 16-18-18-36 runs @ rated speeds using XMP no problem on the K7
Had some stability issues when OCing - ROM Image Not loaded erros whenever an OC crashes.
But when stock stable as you like. Currently @ 4.0GHz on 1600X @ 1.4v and stable.

I would send you pictures that I took of my BIOS settings after I got it to work, but I'm not at home right now.

Finally got it to boot. Even RMA'ed my old board, but the board wasn't the issue. It was the connection to the case that was causing it to short. I was on call with Gigabyte support for an hour and I was finally able to boot to BIOS when I powered the board on outside of the case.

wow this is interesting, testing a 1700X and I need to run the ram at 1.4V to post, never needed more than the default 1.35V with my 1700... interesting. What are your ram voltage settings mus1mus?

Before people tell me that I don't know how to overclock, let me just say that using Ryzen Master for initial overclock tests is quite helpful because then, if the overclock doesn't work, the system doesn't go into a boot loop because the OC is only applied when Ryzen Master is opened and a particular profile applied. With that said, which settings do I need to alter in the BIOS to get the RAM (potentially) working?
