Gigabyte GA-AX370-Gaming K7 Discussion - Page 57

post #561 of 1625
I think I made it???!! Booting up with 3200mhz and not getting fatal errors on prime95 now!!

Things I did:

Disabled CNQ , C-State and CPB
Multi to 38
Blck 100.10
Set XMP
tweaked timing from 16 18 18 18 38 to 16 15 15 15 36
VCore Normal + 0.0750v (Getting 1.45v in cpu z-)
VSoc 1.1v
Ram Volts 1.40v
LLC to High

Can I tweak the voltages or I'm running too high for 3.8? Highest temp seen so far 74c

@Sev501 Did you need that much vCore just for the RAM or for the 3.8Ghz on the CPU aswell?

Games and most encoding jobs were all stable.
But I really wanted 100% stability @4ghz under any circumstances, and want to shoot for 4.1 if possible.

I decided that I liked the gigabyte platform, but needed something with better VRMs and VRM cooling, so I grabbed this board (K7).

I've now been reading almost every page of this thread and frankly I'm worried I made the wrong choice.

  • Is there anybody running Flare X at 3200MHz successfully? Seems gimped to 2933 (semi-unstable at that)
  • What are your guys VRM temps?
  • I've seen whisperings of possible p-state overclocking being added to this board.. anybody heard anything concrete?

I can only comment on VRM temps. Mine never got near 70c. I'm running 3.9ghz @ 1.35 vcore. LLC on High.
my ram is Gskill Trident Samsung B-dies. Running 3200. No issues with that.

Awesome! Thanks for the data point.

I have at least 3 variants of same Micron ICs on different PCB revisions. They all have different headrooms and timings need to be tailored for each of them.

We only have access to a handful of memory timings at the moment. The exact timings were shown as they are on CPU-Z.

My dual rank Corsair 2x8GB 2666Mhz memory are Micron IC:s, Micron D9RGQ A-die

Been trying to get some extra out of them and haven't managed to get above 2666Mhz to post. I can tighten the timings from stock 16.18.18.18.35 to 14.15.14.14.28 @ 1.200 Volts

14.14.14.14. hasn't been error free with voltage all the way to 1.450V... I see you have the same issue with tRCD. Mine don't like 14 at any voltage. Maybe I should let that one be and try other stuff instead.

Any timings you recommend for me to try and get past 2666?

If I go down with my VCore w/ 3200mhz XMP on ram, my prim95 test will throw a fit.
Haven't experimented much yet but the readings from cpu-z vs hwinfo and hwmonitor for cpu vcore are very far from one another.

HWInfo says I'm running on 1.375 - 1.419v current to max
HWMonitor says 1.452-1.488v current to max
CPU Z - 1.452 - 1.476 and fluctuates from there

Right now I'm running 3.825Ghz

Try high timings like 20-20-20-20-40 and VDIMM to 1.35.
Set 3200. 2933 seems finicky on mine.

Is it worth loosening the timings that much?

been using this thread as a guide so thanks all.

I was very worried about the ryzen memory compatibility, the new Flare-X kits being a little too pricey for me.
But I am glad to say I powered on, flashed the official F3 BIOS and proceeded with windows.

Then simply set the XMP profile which auto adjusted my corsair memory to 3200MHz 1.35v 16-18-18-36. Booted no problem and been running fine ever since.
I had a quick go at OC and got to 4GHz @ 1.45v
However, 3.9GHz was stable at 1.35v
Put it back to stock for now as i would rather have the XFR boost on 2 cores to 4.1 and let RYZEN do its thing.
Will revisit the OC later down the line when platform matures.

Gaming is super smooth and not maxing out my CPU to 100% as my old 2500k would do. (1600X btw)

Motherboard looks fantastic and no problems to report yet.
BIOS is super easy to use, a friends ASUS crosshair on intel platform felt like a mine field in comparison

Good luck to all with your new ryzen builds!
