Asrock X370 Taichi Overclocking Thread - Page 21

post #201 of 503
As far as I can understand, p-states overclocking won't give any better results in terms of frequency.

I don't have Taichi, but have X370 Gaming K4. I overclocked with p-states like this: found stable frequency and voltage (3,9 and 1.3), changed p-state 0 frequency to 3.9 (9c, as far a i remember) and didn't touch the voltage. If I changed p-state voltage, p-state 0 was never used, only p-state 1 (2,6GHz). Instead I noted down the default voltage (1.1875), switched to OC page in UEFI, set Vcore from auto to offset +0.1125, and now everything seems to be working, though I had to meddle with Ryzen Power Plan: it has 90% min cpu state, and cores still weren't downclocking in idle, changed it to 10%, now CPU frequency stays within 1.6-3.9 depending on the load.

Was able to get my TridentZ B-die to 3200mhz today (on the Taichi w/ r5 1600)

DRAM V - 1.35v
SOC V - 1.2v

Turned on OC Mode and CPU Manual Mode

CPU - 3.9ghz
Voltage - 1.375v (may try lower in a bit)

Temps range significantly on certain software (HWMontir/Corsair Link4/AsRock Utility 28-44c) though in Ryzen Mater it is 31idle - 56 in games (average of 45)

Using an H115i Cooler in performance mode with a decent custom curve.

First of all I ask you to forgive me for being somewhat off-topic, but I need some feedback from you fellow Taichi owners. My problem with the Taichi + Ryzen 1700x (at stock freq.) is that the cpu single-core boost doesn't seem to work as it should. From what I read on other forums, running single-threaded benchmarks should always have one core boosted, even if that core changes dynamically as it seems the cpu (or windows?) assigns the thread not to one single core, but it often jumps from one core to another.
I tried Cinebench (single core), WinRar bench (single thread), Prime95 with only one worker, cpu-z, old single-threaded apps from the early 2000s (Super Pi, PiFast) - none of these are boosting one of the cores to 3.8 or 3.9GHz.
I know that individual cores do jump occasionally to 3.9, hwinfo64 shows that if i leave it running for a longer time (in the "maximum" column), but I think it just hits that freq for a very short time as I have't been able to see the current speed of a core at 3.9. Tried all the windows power plans (Ryzen Balanced included), all that changes is the idle behaviour (Ryzen Balanced and High Perf keeps all cores at 3.5, Balanced allows cores to downclock to 2.0 when idle). I don't remember ever seeing the nominal frequency of 3.4 - under load it always prefers 3.5. Also I don't remember ever seeing 3.8 in the "maximum" column in hwinfo. So it seems XFR is always active, which I'm not complaining about.
So, is the above behaviour normal on Taichi? If not, what should I look for? BIOS or windows settings? Maybe some special windows update for ryzen? Maybe a clean install, because this windows install is actually from a Gigabyte AB350 Gaming-3 that killed me for 3 weeks before getting the Taichi?

Great to see I still have an active account here.

I was one of the VERY VERY lucky few who snagged a Taichi back in March. There was a 10 min Window one day in march where Newegg had them in stock around March 12th, even though I was on the notification list I never got the notification, just sitting at work, checked it : Sold out, check again, in stock, bought it, then checked again and sold out. That said I've had extremely good luck with this board and my chips

http://valid.x86.fr/h8dlq8 Is my best "stable" validation so far.
Cooler is an h115i using the am3 clips.

I'm currently sitting at 4.0/ 1.375vcore 2933 18/38 1t 2x16gb sticks for my 24/7
I can't get that validation link to post anymore on the 2.0 bios and they took down the 1.94 bios sooooo yea. That said, this has been an absolute blast!

Any of you guys using HWinfo to check temps? What is the temperature I should be looking at? Tctl or CPU reported under the motherboard tab? The one under the motherboard tab matches the temp reported in the A-Tuning utility but the Tctl temp is ~6C higher.

Found the answer in earlyer posts. Thx

I do got the 1.94 bios update if you want it, got it from asrock by mail.

Is this newer then 2.00 from offsite?

I can't see how it would be unfortunately.

I'm anxious for a new BIOS. 2.0 is t cutting it for me.

It is an older bios but it has better RAM support

I'd like to try 1.94 and see if it will help me reach 3200 with xmp biggrin.gif
