Note: these sticks are the ones that won't boot to 3200. Other sticks use the same IC on different PCBs and are fine with 3200.

It was this thread I found that made me try to get some extra out of this kit:

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.

Good luck to all with your new ryzen builds!

 

Hello,

 

Can you please provide a product link to your Corsair RAM?

Superpi is good. But I would use HCI memtest for RAM stability until LinuxMint gets the kernel update for Ryzen.

Yeah I've tested with Memtest86 and HCI memtest for stability for myself with the stuff that boots but looking at that old thread I see these chips should be able to do so much more than I have gotten from them myself. CL10 @ 2666Mhz for example.. or CL14 or even 12 for 3000Mhz.
There seems to be a issue with voltage. All settings that work with 1.200 volts are fine but anything that requires more won't post.
So I'm thinking the BIOS hasn't gotten all the tweaks needed the G5 and K7 have gotten.

I got a quick answer from G.SKILL.
G.SKILL Eurotech
14 avr. (Il y a 1 jour)

À moi
Dear Customer,

Under our testing results, F4-3200C14D-16GFX running at 3200MHz is not compatible with your system (GA-AX370-Gaming K7 + Ryzen 7 1700X).

If the model is capable of running at 2933MHz, this indicates the modules are in good working condition, and your CPU might the factor that prevents your system from booting higher than 2933MHz.

Here is what you may try manually to see if it will boot at 3200MHz:

DRAM Frequency: 3200MHz
DRAM Voltage: 1.35V
CL-Timing: 16-18-18-38 (tCL-tRCD-tRP-tRAS)
Command Rate: 2T

Please make sure the latest BIOS has been updated and clearing CMOS is done prior to booting.

Thank you.


Best Regards

So it looks like they have no problem selling kits that are NOT compatible at advertised speeds. I still don't know what to do with these, does the extra speed compensate for loosened timings at 3200Mhz ??

BTW, does anyone know any compatible 2*8GB kit that will accept 14-14-14-14-34 ????

@Sicklysweet

So thats their answer? Sounds like BS to me, because the funny part is where they dont even run at those loose timings.
Hope (for AMD)

Sure, it was these:

https://www.scan.co.uk/products/16gb-(2x8gb)-corsair-ddr4-vengeance-lpx-black-pc4-25600-(3200)-non-ecc-unbuffered-cas-16-18-18-36-xm

Part number: CMK16GX4M2B3200C16

I made sure they were on the QVL. Its just the QVL lists them as 8x8GB kit so the PN differs in that regard.

Cheers.

Hey Community,

I was trying to get my Corsair Vengeance CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 working on more then 1066 MHz. This led me directly into a BIOS problem and to this forum :]

--> the B_BIOS is loading on now.

When I try do change the jumpers for the M_BIOS, the Mainboard is switching to B_BIOS when i have set the "Dual BIOS" mode,
when i have set up for the "Single BIOS" mode and try to boot from the M_BIOS directly the PC don't come up. I do not see the POST, just a black monitor.

My question:

I tired a CMOS reset by pressing the button (beside sw_reset) when the power is unplugged. is this the right method? I mean that you have to unplug the power-cable first? On my last GB - Mainboard it has to be on power...
I tired a CMOS reset by unplug the battery for about 10 mins.

No way still a 0d error when i try to boot from main M_BIOS


Is there a way to recover the main BIOS from the backup BIOS? Atm i have a running system but I mean if i want to OC or try out other memory settings it would be nice to have a backup...

Any ideas would be welcome, thank you

According to a reply here a few pages back. Boot bios with working one then inside bios flip switch to broken bios then flash with a working bios image.

Well, this is my story...

I got K7 board, paired it with r5 1600(non x version) and got to silver bullet hype train that is G.Skill Flare X 3200.

And when i connected everything i immediately jumped to XMP profile set 3200 and voila its not working....

This is quite annoying since RAM almost cost me as CPU and on their pages Gaming K7 is on QVL!!!

Maybe this RAM is working with R7 1800x + K7 but sure as hell its not working with R5 1600 + K7.

Windows where installed on 2400 mhz, default RAM speed.

Than i started playing around and i managed to get to 2666mhz and finally i managed to get to 3000, didnt try to push to 3200 yet.

Quick guide:

Advice for new guys trying to do manually overclock Flare X(or whatever RAM):

Make 100% sure that one of your BIOSs is working on default settings!
I learned that hard way, played with both BIOSs, borked both of them and was unable to enter either BBIOS, got in panic mode but then i remember that K7 has clear cmos button.

F3 Bios was used and guide goes like this:
  • Switch to backup bios flash it to F3
  • Go to XMP profile, select profile and change Memory Multiplier to get 2400 or 2666(this worked for me) Mhz, save and restart, boot to windows just to make sure that its working.
  • Go to BIOS again and set Memory Timing Mode to Advanced Manual, and set timings 14-14-14-34 restart and pray biggrin.gif
  • Hopefully it will boot to windows and all will be fine...

I didn't manage to get to 12-12-12-28 timings that wingman99 got, it booted but got some error message that pc hardware/drive is corrupted or something like that, sorry didn't took picture since i was in panic mode.

I managed to get 13-13-13-32 and booted to windows, CPU-Z reported timings 14-13-13-32 for some reason.

Currently i'm running memtest86 on 14-14-14-34 after 40 minutes with no errors.

I have two questions for community:

How can we change Command rate?
Is there a point to push tighter memory timings on 3000mhz like ones that i achieved 14-13-13-32?

P.S. Memtest86 passed with no issues
