So this problem only happens on Gigabyte Ryzen motherboards and it's all right ? I don't want to have to do the manipulation every weeks.

I didn't have to reflash, clear CMOS etc unless I spend the day tweaking stuff. wink.gif

Sorry if this already been answered, 74 pages in already!

I have 32GB of dual rank Trident Z (Samsung B's) that run at 3200Mhz (2 sticks). The problem is one of a cold boot. If I manually tweak the memory speeds and ramp up slowly (from 2400, 2666, 2933, 3200) I can run at 3200Mhz all day. I did a mixed prime95 test for 8 hours and it passed with the CPU at 3.825Ghz.

So when my system cold boots and won't fire up, I simply hit the reset button and then all is well, it fires up fine. The problem is I have do this every time I shut down and start up the PC frown.gif

Is there any setting in the BIOS that will boost the memory voltage on POST to avoid this issue? I'm using the latest beta BIOS and tried older ones as well but don't see anything that would allow for a DRAM Boost voltage.

Thanks in advance!

Never read about this method before, usually people advise to clear CMOS by removing battery and unplugging power then holding power button for a minute or so.

Noticed the K7 boots up a lot faster than the Asrock Pro Fatal1ty board I had. Asrock board would take about 10 seconds before the BIOS would post. Not sure if a setting was off or what.

Yeah I think this reboot trick started working with the latest F3E beta BIOS. Prior to this, I was limited to 2933Mhz (or a little higher with bclock adjustments). With further reading, it appears the K7 lacks DRAM boost voltage functionality which is a shame so I don't think there's any way to currently fix this (unless Gigabyte patches this via a new BIOS release?).

I found a workaround but it's not ideal. You can simply set the memory to XMP but manually change memory speed to a lower value like 2133Mhz. The board appears to not have cold boot issues with the RAM set to 2133. Once in Windows, I can get then apply a profile with AMD Ryzen Master that boosts the memory back to 3200Mhz and the sets the CPU speed. I would prefer to do this via the BIOS so I can run other OS's etc but this will do for now.

Next step is to add another 32GB to see how fast I can get with 64GB smile.gif Hopefully the memory controller on my CPU is able to handle higher speeds with 4 sticks biggrin.gif

I noticed this as well compared to the MSI Carbon X370.

Been thinking of selling my actual board (Killer SLI) for some days, I think I'll finally get this one, I like what I see in this thread smile.gif

You will find the one I am using. It's like $20 bucks. Unfortunately, the US store has been out of stock for 3 months. I REALLY wanted one badly so I ordered from the EU store and paid the extra 20 bucks for shipping. It got to me in about 7 or 8 days and its worth it to me as it looks better in person than I imagined. Plus the vertical mount insures my 960 evo stays cool and away from the GPU.
Did you have to mod the case any I didn't think to look for a spot for that lol oh and here is my build as it sits now.
