Testing between two different motherboards (A B350 and the K7) with the same chip here's my results:B350:
CPU: 4.0Ghz @ 1.4v stable.
& 4.1Ghz @ 1.435v stable.
Memory: No problems booting 2933Mhz first try.K7:
CPU: 4.0Ghz @ 1.46v stable.
Memory: Bootloops from 3200Mhz XMP until it boots with 2133 no XMP
I'm not going over 1.46v right now.
Gonna try F3 and see how it goes.
Whoa. I´ve been considering selling my 1700X, since I need to give it 1.431v to get it absolutely stable on 3.9Ghz (IBT, X264, GTAV kind of stable). Granted the Temps are still really good since I'm still well below 70° in Gaming.
Now I see it could also be the board eh? (At least partly) And I'm not even talking about not beeing able to get my RAMs over 2933Mhz, when I was paying extra to have Ryzen compatible 3200 Mhz Ram on a MOBO that was advertized beeing able to run 3600Mhz with BCLK.
Way to go for a supposedly higher end board.

BTW, your F9 issue, was it an instant F9--board reboot Or q-code shuffle--F9--reboot loop?
I'm going to check that tomorrow. But from memory it wasnt instant.
I'm also going to test F3 tonight. Hope it helps.
edit: F3 seems to work just aswell (or as bad) as F3D. No probs on 2933CL14 (with or without setting XMP profile first). But 3200 still goes F9. And yes it goes there pretty much right away. There are two or three numbers first but then F9 -> reboot x3.
Ah well, since they seem to have taken this Ram kit off their support list, I´m stuck with overpriced RAMs I guess.
edit 2: Also overclocking the BCLK is totally impossible for me. I've tried 102,5 103, 104. Windows black screens right befor login. I guess because of my 290X.
My luck has totally run dry on this board.Edited by colorfuel - 4/11/17 at 2:39pm
