Gigabyte GA-AX370-Gaming K7 Discussion - Page 62

post #611 of 1661
Well, had my first major hiccup with this board + 1800x today.

Shut the system down overnight, and in the morning it wouldn't cold boot. The motherboard on-board power switch LED would rapidly blink, rather than being lit as per normal. As soon as I'd press it (or the case power switch) the LED would go out. No display on the error LED, no fans spinning up, nothing.

Tried to boot to both BIOS, tried to just unplug the PSU and hold the mobo power switch for 30 seconds, tried holding both the power and reset switches for 30 seconds, and I tried holding down the clear CMOS switch for 60 seconds multiple times with both BIOS.

Closest any of this got me was, again, the blinking power switch LED and, just once, some hissing from, I think, a capacitor (presumably not getting the current it needs to actually function).

Thankfully, after pulling the CMOS battery and using a screwdriver to short the battery terminals for about 15 seconds it booted up. I've tested both BIOS and they seem to be working... For now...

Hopefully not a sign of things to come. tongue.gif

P.S. This was all with absolutely no overclock whatsoever. Only things I had changed in BIOS were setting a custom fan curve, disabling the onboard audio, and manually setting my memory at 3200mhz CL14.

My memory was stable through 20 (yes, twenty) passes of MemTest, so I doubt it was a memory issue. These Ryzen boards sure are finicky...

Besides ram and oc'ing, have you guys played with the other features of the board.


It has 2 onboard sound ? How does that work? And for you guys which nic do you favor ? The killer or the intel nic?


Thanks smile.gif

Well i didn't test the front onboard audio since i don't have front port on my case.

But i'm very happy with the ALC1220 and the input capacitor.
My setup is a bit complicated since i'm using my computer to mixe my consoles sound and my PC sound (One headset and i can use discord/teamspeak while playing at my consoles). It does sound easy but to have a electronics noise free sound, keeping a good volume and correctly driving a headset is a nightmare..

The USB dac ports are great, my Dac FiiO E10k is perfectly silent when nothing is played.

Overall i'm very happy with the sound of the MB.


Regarding the NIC, i'm using the killer because it does give a lot of information and i've never had before a nic who allow to set apps priority and can actualy manage website bandwith and allow me to block anything.

Another great thing is the USB-C port. It does fast charge my smartphone and i can leave vysor On all the time biggrin.gif

Darn, even the debug lights? Nothing? Have you tried unplugging from wall, removing cmos, and clearing via shorting out the jumpers?

So the creative one is more for the front panel audio maybe?
Yeah I've tested the rear audio connectors, but only hooked up a 2.1 audio solution and it's nice and clear no hiss/hum.. I guess the chipset for the sound works wonders plus the way they have padded the IO shield maybe? To prevent shorts and interference of sorts.

Right now am also hooked up with the killer nic, altho I don't notice any improvements with gaming as I'm already getting low latency , but yeah I love the killer app that it includes. You can set which one eats the net or assign priorities and limit connectivity.

Btw, have you played with the RGB Fusion thing? Are we able to control regions of the mobo to have light or to turn off some regions? Does the "Aorus" word on the board itself light up?



Thanks

Regarding RGB fusion, i'm using it but the intelligent feature doesn't properly work. I would like it to follow my CPU temp, it's a settings but it stay green (under 30C) when the cpu is over 45C..

Nah the aorus isn't lighten UP.

I've played with it a bit and yes I noticed that too it does not accurately follow the temps for the lighting , and I was not able to control a specific region haha, even if I select the one I wanted to change a color it would change for all. Anyway I just turn off the lights on mine biggrin.gif

I think I got the creative audio thing wrong, it's just an audio suite but I don't know how to trigger it to make it work. When I launch the app it just says unsupported. Maybe because I'm using a speaker? Haven't tried hooking up just headphones to check tho.

Am now stable at 3.9@1.387v with 3200mhz ram. Just need to figure out how to apply that offset.
post #620 of 1661
how is it going with the overclocking? also what timing did you dial in for ram oc?
