Asrock X370 Taichi Overclocking Thread - Page 12

post #111 of 587
I have this board with a r7 1700, along with the g.skill flare x kit, F4-3200C14D-16GFX
I believe the memory is single rank with samsung b-die chips. (its on the QVLs, too)
I bought that kit and this board specifically because of the memory issues.

With the xmp profile I can reach 2933 mhz easily with timings on 14,
but I can't get 3200mhz to post even with 1.15v vddr_soc, 1.4v dram, and loose timings (20).
I use the A2-B2 slots as the manual suggests, and my bios is at the latest version 2.0

Do I just have bad luck with these parts? How would I find out if my cpu's memory controller, the board, or the memory is the culprit?
Anything more I can try? I haven't tried using a single stick. Should I just hope a future bios update helps? I read the command rate should be 2 rather than 1, not sure.

Hi Everyone smile.gif,
I was recently able to purchase an X370 Taichi (still waiting for this and a few other parts to arrive) for a long overdue upgrade/build. However, I could use any and all help from you experts. Being I'm no longer in my "prime", a bit older, and having never overclocked a CPU before, let alone the Ryzen 1700 which I'm hearing can be a bit finicky in conjunction with the BIOS updates and memory etc. the task is becoming a bit overwhelming. But first a bit about the build/components:

CPU: AMD RYZEN 7 1700 (was between the 1700 and 1700x but everyone suggested I just overclock the 1700, it will be "easy" they said hehe)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H115i (really hoping this thing is quiet)
Motherboard: ASRock X370 Taichi (came with a wifi card + heard people were getting their 3200 RAM to work on it)
Memory: G.Skill TridentZ Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory (same as above)
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 1TB (not going to lie paid a bit much but have heard great things about the EVO series)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM (is just a HDD)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Superclocked Gaming ACX 3.0 (was between 1070 and 1080 but I have an Acer Predator x34 widescreen so I wasn't sure if the 1070 would be enough)
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA P2 850W (even 750 is overkill but at least the fan won't be turning on 90% of the time)


I'm not looking to heavily over-clock the CPU as is EXTREMELY important I don't hear the cooler fan but it would be awesome to get it to 3.9ghz. However, I have NO CLUE which settings to input into the x370 Taichi once I get it, how to get the memory to read properly as 3200 (should I have gotten 3400+?). As you can see I'm a bit confused (I promise you I'm old but not "that" old hehe).

If anyone could help me out, guide me or provide me with a step by step/settings, I would truly appreciate it and will forever be in your debt.

Note: Here is a link to the exact memory I bought:

Normally, users could only modify CPU internal voltage.
But on this model, we mounted with extra PWM IC to let users control CPU external voltage.
In BIOS \ OC Tweaker \ CPU Configuration \ CPU Voltage, this option is to adjust CPU internal voltage.
In BIOS \ OC Tweaker \ Voltage Configuration \ Fixed (Offset) Voltage, this option is to adjust CPU external voltage.

Note: If users set CPU internal voltage and CPU external voltage at the same time, CPU voltage would only change based on CPU external voltage setting.

good question what to do now with this information, but i set both cores to the same voltage i think

Can somone tell me what they mean by CPU External Voltage? I never heard of such a thing :-?

Set CPU voltage to fixed mode, put 1.35 and manually change your cpu speed to 3900. Change CPU load line calibration to Level 2, VDDR_SOC load line calibration to Level 2. Hit save and exit bios. It should post at 3.9ghz. Then go into bios again and Load XMP Profile (XMP 2.0 Profile 1), change dram frequency to 2933, and put your timings of 16-18-18-18-38, go to DRAM voltage and change to 1.35. Save and it should post (if it doesn't, it will reboot 5-6 times) and then re-enter bios with more loose frequency (2666). If it posts fine at 2933, try to change it to 3200. This is a simple version without going into P-states and should work fine.

Do stability testing (prime95, aida64) and if it's stable, you can then mess around with lowering your voltage and check stability or even making a higher overclock.

Similar to Intel is what I'm asking.

I see people having to run performance mode awhile back. Didn't know if some of this has been ironed out ☺

I thought i was able to post at 3200Mhz, after giving the SOC 1.2v, it booted but just gave me a black screen and i had to shut down and reset cmos. Guess i'm still stuck at 2933, but at least the timings are 14-14-14-34. Wonder if we'll get another BIOS update before the months end or if they're waiting for the AGESA updates in May.

Just spent 6 hours trying to get my computer to boot. Start off with the B6 (ram, restesded it) then it just whem boot loop. Got tired of pissng around with it, will test it done tomorrow stock to see if andthings sit.


...this is after a benber of marathon games of BF1 and a number I'd other games, including taking

Was willing to do the while early adopttiion thing,.but when. My computer cant even get pos then maybe its time to Start looking s tthr blie tesmm.
jng.

Got a good week or so out of it, between the horrible launch and BIOS upadates.

Are you using the p state method? If not how are you overclocking.
