Gigabyte GA-AX370-Gaming K7 Discussion - Page 114

post #1131 of 1632
Board has been running like a dream other than the BIOS issue I had in regards to loading a BIOS image. Flashed the BIOS again and been fine since. I also just installed a Gigabyte PCI-e WiFi/BT 4.2 adapter. Works great with my bluetooth headphones and Xbox One controller. thumb.gif

Has anyone been able to get 2 seperate 16gig lpx kits running at 3200 if i only use 1 kit it runs fine but with 2 (4 sticks) i cannot get past 2666ghz. I have a 1700x if that matters

AFAIK, he wasn't able to do that. Borked his BIOS trying.

I would stop at 2666 knowing I am going out of the recommended config if I were you.

Hi,

im new in this Forum but read all 114 Pages because i wanted to see if there are Problems with this board.

This is my first post and it is a Problem i have. Yesterday i powered it on and used it like always and shut it off when i was done. Today everything is dead. No LED glowing no, reaction when i hit the power button. I dont know what to test first. Power Suply or Board. Power Sypply is a Corsair AX 860 and my Board is the Gaming K7 with a Ryzen 7 1700X @3.8GHz/1.3Volt and 32GB Gskill 3200 C14 RAM at 3200MHz.

I dont know if that OC killed it but i dont think so, there were no Problems prior to that except that it sometimes when i shut it down it automaticly Turn itself on again which i ended with an long press of the power button if i saw it.

Any idea what i should test first or is there a way to get it back to life?

Try different PSU

Test it on stock settings , flip bios switch (Dual BIOS)

Try one stick of RAM

Try boot via USB stick, power cycling shut down might possibly damage SSD. Did you turn off the auto-restart craziness in Windows 8/10? If it blue-screened it auto-reboots otherwise.

Try this :

Power off your PSU, remove the CMOS battery (more than 1 minute) and hold the motherboard power button down for a minute.

If you were to RMA the board, they would power it up, find nothing wrong with it (at 2100MHz RAM), and re-sell it at a slight discount as an "open box" item. Then when they send you a new one, you will have the exact same problem. It's just the same old RAM / bios issues that all of us have been experiencing, with some variability of results depending on RAM and motherboard and bios version.

I'm not sure that I've ever been able to get XMP to work with F3 bios. I've had to manually set multiplier, RAM voltage, and timings.

Here's what I would do if I were you. Go into bios (you can keep f2 for now), disable XMP, set RAM multiplier to 32, set timings to manual, set DRAM voltage to whatever your RAM is rated for (probably 1.35V), set timings to whatever it says on the side of your RAM sticks. See if that boots at 3200MHz. If not, try 2933MHz (lower the multiplier). You can also try F3 bios with manual RAM settings. It's possible that your RAM just will not work at 3200MHz right now (which I think a number of people were reporting only being able to get 2933MHz to work with the Flare X memory). It's irritating, but you might have to wait for a bios update to get 3200MHz RAM.

Alternatively, you could maybe return the RAM and get this kit: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0143UM4TC/ref=od_aui_detailpages02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I'm using that kit with the K7 motherboard, F3 bios, and I've had no issues getting 3200MHz when manually setting RAM multi, timings, and voltage =1.35V. I'm running a 1600X and I honestly have no idea if different processors matter (your 1800X vs my 1600X). I wouldn't expect that, but I can't say definitively because there is a massive knowledge hole regarding the inner workings of Ryzen. redface.gif

Oh wow, thank you so much for your detailed reply. After I posted this I checked the mobo QVL list and it seems that 2 x flare x combo has been removed from there. The mobo only supports one flare x ram stick now and that is really stupid imo. I paid 100$ premium for this ram just to make sure it works since it's "designed" for Ryzen. It seems after all that they are not so compatible on the new bios, maybe next update will bring back the support for them, or maybe I should return the sticks since they are ugly, expensive, and not working as advertised. Anyway, I was thinking to change the mobo with an Asus Crosshair 6 Hero since I see a lot of people use it and I heard Asus is more reliable. Did I make a good choice? Is the asus one just a personal choice or it's actually a bit better than k7? So far it didn't create problems except for the fact that it scared me so bad when the f3 bios didnt boot anymore with flare x dual channel xmp mode.

Thanks again sir!

Thank you.

I tried it and for now it worked. Does anyone know why this happens? Is that issue resolved in F3? I think i will try and Flash the final F3 Bios, right now im using the F3E beta bios.

EDIT: Little follow up. After rebooting i got an F9 boot loop so i reseted the bios. After that i ve got an 0d F9 boot loop. Now i flashed Bios F3 and will test if it runs better.

Sadly, it happens on all bios, even with beta bios and only on Ryzen Gigabyte motherboards. Why this problem happens ? Bad bios ? Bad hardware ? Bad battery ? Even Gigabyte doesn't know.

There is also an issue with the "ROM Image is not loaded ROM Image update denied" message, which can brick the bios. Thanks to dual bios, we can resolve this problem, but well biggrin.gif....
