Changed in Windows the power option to balanced and minimum power state to 5% (or any number offcourse , also might by doable with Ryzen powerplan but didnt test that so far)
Then do a OC but also use a ,25 setting so 40,25 multiplier did it for me

Great catch. Too bad it does not adjust vcore.

So how are you guys doing it?

Load stock bios settings > boot to windows > set power plan to windows balanced, set minimum processor state to 5% > reboot and do oc? did you guys set everything manually to oc? (eg. vcore, vcore soc, vdram, llc , etc.). Will give a shot once I get home.

Hi guys,

I need your help again. frown.gif
I booted my PC as usual today and everything works fine. However I just noticed that windows is running with 8 GB of RAM instead of my 16. (Checked in task manager)
But CPU Z shows 16 GB as well as the BIOS. Any idea what the problem might be and how I can solve it?

I had the same issue two weeks ago and after some testing found out that the PC won't boot with one of the modules. II send back my two ram modules and got two new ones.
I will have to do some testing and see if it behaves the same way again this time. But can it really be a hardware issue with the ram again?

I am currently not using any XMP.

Thanks a lot guys!

BTW do you experience a crackling sound when the system starts? It's as if the audio device was turning on a few seconds after you press the power button and then makes this sound, I don't know if it's bios related and can be configured, because the sound is quite loud (only happens when booting or rebooting the system)

First time I heared (because I had my speakers on) it startled me.

When turning it on or rebooting with my speakers powered on , I hear a pop sound that's initializing the soundcard perhaps, but other than that , everything works superbly once in windows.

Full blast volume no crackles or hiss for both front and back panels. Altho I only have 2.1 speakers set up. Mostly a headpone person.

Just OC multiplier with a decimal like 40.25 not a round number
post #865 of 1642
Oh Ryzen Balanced works, I just had to up the Minimum Processor State to 25% to actually see it downclock. Weird.

So just set my multi up, and it's ok if I just set the voltages manually?
How about CnQ, C6 states do you have them turned on or off?

Thanks!

You may adjust those to yuor own liking it doesnt apply to the downclocking only the adding of a decimal and number

I'm not saying yours is the same issue, but hopefully what I went through will help you in some way.

I went through a long 2-3 day trial getting my mobo first to show that it had power to getting Windows 7 loaded and to keep it from hanging.

The first roadblock I had was the mobo wouldn't show any lights. I ran upon this step-by-step troubleshooting thread that mentioned making sure no extra standoffs were touching the mobo and BINGO! That was it! Not only that, the wide screw rings appear to touch the solder on the mobo so I actually had to put the paper washers on them for the first time. This is a consideration.

The other thing is I wasn't getting a picture and nothing from the CPU where I thought it was faulty. I re-seated that thing about 4 times and then caught a random post on the umpteenth website I stumbled upon by googling that said to try to loosen the screws on the heatsink of the CPU. For me it was from my Corsair h100i water cooler. I never realized I could be tightening it too tight, because sure enough... it posted after that!

Well, it posted after I put my GPU in the 2nd PCIe slot. That was a suggestion that worked for me, because initially it wasn't working in the 1st slot. I have no idea why. And when everything was loaded in Windows 7 Pro, I was able to move the GPU back to PCIe slot 1.

So hopefully you can glean something out of this to help you in your time of need.

I've tried everything that I can think of. Everything turns on, but the system doesn't boot to OS. I just get a continuous loop and then eventually a QCode that isn't even listed in the damn manual. I think I'm going to RMA the board. The ROG Crosshair VI doesn't give me any issues, or not as many as the K7 has. Sucks because I really like the pretty lights on the K7. I may RMA for a replacement and if the next board gives me issues, I'm sticking with the Crosshair.

Adaptive Vcore can be set using VCore Offset in BIOS:

Yea that's what happens in my case also, but it's a quite loud "pop" sound biggrin.gif (my speakers have no volume control)

I've never heard this on any other motherboard, perhaps they could do some refinement to avoid hearing that sound when speakers are power on.

Thanks for confirming! +rep
