Gigabyte GA-AX370-Gaming K7 Discussion - Page 61

post #601 of 1635
I imported two kits of gskill F4-3200C14D-16GTZSK from the US via newegg (one for me, one for a mate) and so far they've just worked at 3200C14 using xmp or manual settings.. both of us have the K7 and R7 1700, but I did also build a 1700 and msi tomahawk system and this ram just worked in that too.

It also looks really nice with these silver and black motherboards:

However, at this voltage the memory usually passes training after 2-3 reboots and windows will open fine with the proper 3200MHz, this is a little iffy for me, so I don't recommend running it like this.

On my 1700X it doesnt work that way. Even at 1.5v, it loops F9 and boots into windows with 1200Mhz.

On my 1700X this never works. At any voltage between 1.35v and 1.5v it just reboots 3 times on F9 and reverts back to 1200Mhz for Windows.

Luckily, this setting works for me, but only at 1.39v. 1.35 gives me quasi instant blue-screen in Windows with WHEA errors.

Yes, this RAM actually meets spec if you use the Bclk generator... I'm running windows on my 960 Pro, and haven't seen any major issues when running the Bclk at this level.

This setting just gives me an E6 error and doesnt boot. I've been having strictly no luck in booting anything beyong 101.5x . Either my GPU goes black on Windows right away or I get the aforementioned E6 error.

Hope this adds to the discussion! thumb.gif

Looking at my case, your conclusion is wrong. There are really bad samples of 1700X out there aswell and it seems like I got one. I cant reach more than 3.9Ghz on this chip either.

I'm ready to sell the chip and get a new one, but considering my luck, it wont be any better.

Sounds like quite the headache.

Have you tried fresh installing F3d by loading F2 first? I know I tend to corrupt my BIOS after toying with it so many times...
Try 2933 at 14-14-14-14-34 @1.35V. This should be low hanging fruit for Flare X, and if you can't hit this then one of your components is probably a lemon.

Your Bclk problem seems to stand out to me. I'd guess your MOBO might be the culprit (but that really is just a guess).

I wish you the best of luck, brother!
post #604 of 1635
Thanks!

Well, 2933/CL14 @ 1.35v works for me on F3. Even 2933/CL12 @ 1.4v works. So thats a plus.

The bclk issue is weird to say the least.


And well, I'm prepared to sell it but is it worth the hassle for 2,5% more Ghz and a few % more Ram performance? Its all in my head I suppose.

I would like to think it is a CPU limitation on your case. It a sad thing but I guess that's how it goes.
post #606 of 1635
I sorta gave up on 3200mhz for the moment cos I wanted to use the pc for the weekemd. I ended up with
3.85ghz @ 1.38v
Vsoc 1.1
Xmp on but set it to 2933
Dram v 1.35
Timings havent toyed with but used xmp setting 16 18 18 18 38

Realbench stressing is running for almost at it's 6th hour.
Temps at 75-81c..

Ordered a K7 to compare to my Asrock Fatal1ty Pro. Asrock has WiFi/BT and overkill VRM components but Gigabyte looks a lot nicer with more RGB + RGBW support and front and back Dual ALC 1220 audio. Hoping my G.Skill RGB 3200 CL14 RAM runs at advertised speed without issue.

Managed to get G.Skill FlareX 3200 to 12-12-12-28 timings on 3000mhz
Had to bump DRAM voltage to 1.37 minimum to get boot to windows, but Prime95 crashed after 10 minutes now i'm running Prime again with 1.38

On DRAM 1.35v UEFI is not responding.

P.S. Prime 95 crashed on 1.38

You will eventually need no pull it back to 14-14-14-14. No voltage can cure that. wink.gif
post #610 of 1635
I turned off Prime95 after 25 minutes on 1.39v it seems stable enough.

I will go back to 14-14-14-34 1.35v for now and wait for new BIOS update to get 3200mhz
