Have you tried with only 1 stick of ram? Also are you sure the PSU is good? Just a couple quick thoughts.

So flashed back to F2 bios and the cpu still refuses to downclock running at 3.7ghz at all times with XFR boosting whenever. This kind of **** really makes me hate being early adopter. I will let you guys be the sacrifice next time around.

UPDATE: Turns out the increased power consumption was my gpu (150w->90w). SAVE ME VEGA. Still refuses to downclock though.

Yes forgot to mention, tried different psu (working from another machine), and tried one stick (4 of them, one at a time) in all the slots. Still get the same error code still no video. My monitor shows if I unplug the hdmi or dvi cable and says cable not connected, when it is connected is says no signal.

I'll be honest, my K7 is giving me absolutely abysmal OC results, and I know it's not my chip.

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.

That's what vdroop will do, and it's going to be different on every board, and also potentially every bios update.

Without a DMM soldered to the back of the motherboard we won't know how much these boards are providing under load. Another member, Chew, mentioned that theres approximately a 75mV vdroop on one of the gigabyte boards (pretty sure he mentioned the G5, which is identical to the K7). This would perfectly explain the difference between your 4ghz overclocks from board to board.

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. rolleyes.gif

Performance, favors F3D as well.

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. rolleyes.gif

My luck has totally run dry on this board.

Isn't this what LLC is specifically designed to combat? You set a voltage and LLC tries to combat the vdroop to your CPU across the board and adjust up for that 75mV?

Yes, but if you're using the same LLC settings on each board (and if they do in fact provide the same amount of load voltage correction), there could still be a different vdroop on each board.

Like I said before, and no ill-will intended, without accurate voltage readout points or having a DMM soldered to the proper spot on he board, we have no idea what voltages are being provided. Now this doesn't mean the K7 is a bad board, but it would be a shame if there was a higher delta in entered voltage vs load/reported, especially on a "high end board".

It also helps when users try and report these through support tickets; the Gigabyte forums, and tickets I have open seem to have been fairly successful as of recent. They've been pushing out a lot of changes and helpful feedback.

Mine is set to auto, so I had hoped it would go between LLC settings to compensate for the droop I'm getting.

Thanks for the info at least, I'll try adding 75mV to the settings I'm using and figure out where to send a ticket to Gigabyte
