Good Idea on the LLC extreme!

edit: And after 3h AIDA64 stress test, the system is still up and running. Tctl max was 91.1C, Tdie max was 71.9C, VRM MOS was 58C max.

Very good. Maybe I can even try to go furthter than 3.9Ghz, which is something I never expected to be able.

Mus1mus gets another +1 rep for this. thumb.gif

I just tested this method again and check if VRM temps get worse. Nope. Same headroom if not better.
The only thing I would watch for is the VSOC Voltage if that is left on Auto as well. Mine settles to 1.25V. Had to apply an Offset to bring it back to 1.1ish.




Another thing regarding this method, it allows the Voltage to go down at Idle. Lower than CNQ actually.
Under a DMM, the voltage swings can also be captured. Not as low as 0.3ish as the software shows but around 0.5ish low on mine.
Now the funny part is that Clocks are still Static. Mainly because CNQ or downclocking actually stops working if you dial in a CPU clock the same as or over XFR value.
For the 1700X it's 39 Multi. So for CNQ to work, CPU clock needs to be at 3800 and below.
It doesn't matter if I am using BCLK and keeping the multi to 38.

I changed the memory position from 2-4 to 1-3 and i can boot it fine at 2666 MHz.

At 2993 it wont boot, but it will reach the windows screen at 3200 MHz, but it gives an error right away that makes me reboot.

Maybe more voltage? My mems are rated at 1.35V 3200 MHz. I shouldnt take more than that to make 3200 MHz. Should i try 1.4V?

The funny thing is, i can perfeclty boot it at 3200 MHz using only one dimm.

The problem is when you put the second mad.gif

1.4V is pretty safe. That or add a tiny bit more VSOC. thumb.gif

If it's not for RAM's effect on performance, I wouldn't really pump my system up to 3200. I can pass 4.1GHz within 1.5V but as soon as i add the 3200 Memory OC, I need moar Voltage on the Core to keep it alive,. rolleyes.gif

Ok, at 1.4V i can enter the Windows with 3200 MHz CL18.

I will probably rool it back to 2666 with lower CL.

Have you been able to make the power savings options to work while OCing?

Because the moment i increase the offset voltage, it will always stick to the max clock and voltage, it wont downclock no mather what.

Any ideias?

Hi!

i am just soooo blown away by this board!!

Coming from a Crosshair VI->MSI Carbon->ASRock Fatality Gaming Pro-> Gigabyte X370 K7.
Flashed latest bios and flipped a switch and BAM! my 2x16GB (Dual Rank)3200 MHz G.Skill were working at CAS14. Flawlessly. Mind blown.
The boot into windows in 10-15 seconds!!! compared to a minute or so on all the other boards.
Just happy to have my RAM running at specs.

Found a major bug though. Running Win10 and Redstone2 all fresh installed.
Installed all gigabyte utilities through the app and when restarted the PC it went straight into BIOS saying something like ...image not found, access denied.
Was able to continue to boot to windows manually by selecting the boot media. However RAM settings were lost and even setting them back to XMP profile would NOT work.
Seeing some F9 loop.
Recovery was only to flash back to F2 BIOS then back to F3. Just reflashing F3 did not help.

Going to start cpu overclocking tonight.thumb.gif

Make sure to place your mems into the 1-3 slot (the ones near your cpu).

Reflashing works for me.

I borked my BIOS a couple of times today due to tweaking biggrin.gif.

Ok, so if just use the offset voltages, the voltage will reduce in idle but the clock will keep at the max speed?

Is that what you were trying to say?

Because i was assuming that since the clock didnt went down, it was downclocking/reducing voltages.

But the manual says otherwise and so does every other board mfg'er.
Are you sure?
