Yes you can flash to an older BIOS.

AFAIK the SOC (aka Northbridge) handles the iGPU, This is because everything is integrated on the chip.

I can see why it would affect CPU. I just got home so I will see if i can do some testing tonight.

The Northbridge is also linked to the RAM and Fabric. I'd have to read up on my Zen Architecture because I'm not really sure beyond this.

Okay, So what is the consensus on the best memory kit for this board at the moment?

Any kits that XMP actually works?

Is it the flare-x g.skill ?

Edit:

Alright, bit the bullet and picked up a set of these Flare X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) F4-3200C14D-16GFX. Hopefully going from Samsung D-Die to B-Die will get me faster ram speeds.

No dice on that 4GHz OC @ 1.4v w/ Medium LLC.

Can someone whith a 4GHz X chip (preferably 1600x, 1700x or 1700) tell me their following:


Vcore set in Bios

Vcore from HWiNFO while Idle
CPU Core Voltage from HWiNFO while Idle

Vcore from HWiNFO while running Prime95 on Small FFTs
CPU Core Voltage from HWiNFO while running Prime95 on Small FFTs

I am trying to figure something out about.

VAXG LLC Affects my OC as well. I set it to match the VCore LLC.

LLC doesn't seem to matter to VRM Temps on this board.

High LLC has some VBoost of up to around 0.025 MAX under load. But these are just spikes. VCore normalizes to the value on the BIOS.

Medium LLC has VDroop of up to around 0.025 under load. VCore normalizes to a lower Value than in the BIOs.

One thing to note here, I have better OC stability with Extreme LLC at a Lower VCore in the BIOS as well as in Windows. But to keep it safe, I use High LLC for 4.0GHz with a 0.0250 Offset.

Extreme LLC doesn't need an Offset for 4.0 on my chip.

I guess I must be insane because I can't seem to get any of the posted configurations working but I seem to be one of the few using 3200mhz ram. Maybe that's causing it in some way?
post #967 of 1653
Alright what the hell am I doing wrong (with images this time).




Yeilds THIS:


When I open up Prime95 and start a run my CPU Core Voltage drops immediately down to 1.325v, my monitor shut off and my LEDs alternate between CPU / DRAM. I've assumed this was due to an unstable overclock thus far. What am I doing wrong with copying this configuration and why is my Vcore so low compared to what it should be? (1.425 vs 1.381)? And under load why does it go all the way down to 1.325? Why am I losing 0.100v with High LLC?

So I fell in love with this board the second I saw it, and then cried when I saw the price. HOPING some insane sale comes along and I can snag a 1600+K7 for a good price.

For a 1080/60 gamer is this board overkill? Or do you guys think it's well worth the price? (I REALLY love the RGB lighting and included RGBW header as well as the dual BIOS/UEFI) This upgrade is making my brain and wallet hurt equally. lol

I think it's good for 1080/60 as I am essentially doing the same thing, but I have a 1080p 144Hz BenQ monitor and I'm running games at 1440p in the control panel as it shows sharper graphics on the 1080p screen. And this makes the Anti-Aliasing unnecessary so you can disable it.

Soooo I re-did everything and followed @mus1mus guide to a T, I must be drunk or high with too much information to handle before I was tuning the system.. I managed to tune it now further and got 3.823ghz @ 1.344-1.356v wit my RAM at XMP 3200mhz speeds, as for the timings I just copied what it said on the box or on the sticks themselves. Mine are single ranked SK Hynix rams.

But still my proc won't down clock but I wouldn't bother with it as I managed to make it work with a lower vcore than before (1.380-1.44v)
