Sorry for the noob question, but what is the difference between the CPU Vcore and VCORE SOC? I've just been changing the CPU Vcore for my overclock, should I be using the SOC setting? Looked through mus1mus guide and the manual but couldn't determine how the SOC setting functions.

Are you sure?

I had my mems into 2-4, couldnt past 2133 MHz. Changed them to 1-3 and i am now at 3200 MHz...tongue.gif

Some crazy stuff is happening with AM4.

Is that what you were trying to say?

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

Just happens on FULL AUTO.



Which happens to give me just the right amount of Voltage to keep Prime Blend running without Black screen. redface.gif

There's a reason for this IMO: TRFC.

The manual recommended slots are for Performance.
What I recommended is for Compatibility.

No matter what kit I use the TRFC on Slots 1-2 defaults to 312T and 3-4 defaults to 500ish.
Some kits just won't accept that kind of tight TRFC. Especially Dual Rank DIMMs.

That is just taking one value that we can see. Other hidden timings will also play a huge role with that. thumb.gif

Its probably wise to keep them at 1-3 for now thumb.gif

About the SOC Voltage...should it be left in AUTO or Normal?

You can have it Manual.

Indeed.

GA Gaming 5/7 are the best looking AM4 mobos IMHO.

Closely followed by Taichi and Professional.

The Taichi is an artistic sin. For the love of PC's, WHY did they put a giant ugly gear on the board!
