Awesome... It'd be interesting to see what cases those of us who have 'buzz' are using, and those who aren't. For instance, my inWin 303 has front audio buzz. I can verify that this isn't Aorus K7 isolated, but has happened with 2 other motherboards, which has lead me to believe that my front i/o cable is unshielded and/or picking up interference in my case. It would seem your mastercase has better front audio cables.

Wondering if it possibly has something to do with my dual GPU setup? as the port is right behind the second GPU.

This is not a CH6 or a Taichi that has issues running 3200 RAM at 100 BCLK. That's the reason you see those boards using high BCLK to reach higher Memory clocks.

In this board, you only need 115-120 to reach past 3600 MHz RAM.

Regarding PCIe modes, any board will automatically or need to be manually set to PCIe 2.0 past 107 MHz.

And as mentioned in another thread, 3600 or even 3466 MHz RAM will not yet pass for daily clocks.

I think that is not case related. Reading user expiriances on this forum and reddit on am4 socket only on gigabyte I read about front panel buzzing sound.

Well, the K7 is my 3rd X370 board and front panel buzz has been evident on all 3... So from my experience it's not just a Gigabyte thing, and why I am more inclined to believe it's an issue of unshielded cables coming from the front I/O

It's not the motherboard. I often use a lot of Asus Aura stuff and set it up to react to audio. It only really works well with onboard audio in my experience. While there is some effect with my Creative ZxR its very muted. The front Audio had a lot of buzz and I forget what case I was using at the time. I moved my Hero IX into my Corsair 740 and had zero buzz...

I've had three X370 boards in this case (MSI Titanium, Crosshair VI and now a Gigabyte K7). None of them have had front audio buzz in my Corsair Air 740.

I also have a Mastercase 5 Pro and a Fractal Define S. I don't remember which.. but one of those has horrible front audio buzz and the other one doesn't. It's either that the cable isn't shielded or isn't shielded properly... or the way the cable is routed placing it in a bad spot.

Wonder if anyone can help with identifying Boost and XFR speeds using gaming k7 and ryzen 1600x

CPU-Z, Ryzen Master Utility etc.. all report 3.7GHz all the time. Which is the boost clock on all cores. Never seems to drop to 3.6 base clock. I also NEVER see 4.0GHz or 4.1GHz (XFR) on any cores. Even when running single thread benches and confirming 100% utilisation on one core.

Any tips appreciated, all MOBO settings for CPU are set to Auto. Not convinced 4.0GHz and XFR does anything.

Thanks.

That's exactly what I was figuring... Doing a bit of digging, it seems it could also be caused by a bad ground (or no ground), or could be caused by a bad connection at the I/O port, in addition to poorly shielded cables. While I'm not really effected by the front panel buzz as all my audio is routed through an Amp/Audio receiver, it's good to know that someone else can corroborate my experience.

Has anyone had the issue of the frequency seemly stuck? I just got my bracket for my AIO and was following Mus1mus' guide and every time I save/restart - the frequency still says 3.4 (1700x). I have tried to set the CPU Clock Ratio to 36, 37, 38 etc and changed the voltages etc but it never seems to change in the window that slides out from the right in the bios. I am wondering if I am missing something as I am very tired at the moment. I unplugged the system and used a screw driver to clear the the bottom cmos pins but its still doing it.
