Also change load line calibration setting to level 3, I run LLC level 1 but that’s the only way I get 24/7 stable(up to you) You also may want to go to bottom of hardware monitor and set all your fans to Full Speed(you can change this later but while tuning cpu and memory, best to keep everything cool. Your running a kinda cheap cooler, most of us are running either water or very good CPU air Coolers.
3. Save Changes and exit, let boot to Windows. Once Windows is loaded, reboot and enter bios again.
4. Change XMP Setting to XMP 2.0 profile and select DDR-3200, then enter DRAM Timing Configuration scroll all the way Down and change gear down mode to enabled.
5. Save changes and exit and boot to Windows.

Now your overclocked to 3.8ghz and your Ram is running at rated speed. You can now play, you really only need to play with the cpu speed to see if you can hit 4.0ghz and the voltage, watch temps and keep voltage under 1.45(though not many have good results at 1.45 volts but that’s as high as amd recommends(especially with your little cooler). Once you get all that stable you can try faster RAM speeds of 3333 or 3466, whatever you’d like. Then you can get into playing with sub timings, that can take along time! Trust me

As I did this, I had to enter the bios for your instructions, as I been sitting in bios for 20 min or so, my cpu is at 41.8C and my M/B temp is 33.0C. Just to give you an idea, I’m on Air, using a giant Noctua 15
Good Luck

I'm not trying to Overclock this 1800x actually. I just want to be able to run it Stable first out of the box. I appreciate the feedback. I will show you with screen shots of exactly what is happening inside my bios. Again, the temp inside the bios I think is reading +20c higher than what it actually is. Using Ryzen Master in windows shows -20c offset.

and to be fair i cant understand the point of a r7 1800 (its more meant for someone who dosnt overclock)

anyways dispite the cost of an 1800 its not bad

with your heatsink and fan id suggest at least 2 intake and 2 exhaust fans on case to help things go right

I have a full Tower: Corsair Graphite 760T so i doubt its related to heat honestly. The base of the heatsink is barely warm. Ryzen Master shows 32c in windows.

Tdie is the actual CPU temperature read from sensor on the CPU so that's the actual value. Tctl is the dumb offset AMD pushed down our throats and doesn't mean anything except Taichi BIOS will use it to set fan speed so you're just better of setting it yourself manually using Speedfan tbh.

CPU Core Voltage (SVI2 TFN) is the actual CPU voltage.

I'm so happy you confirmed this honestly. Can you tell me step by step how to manually set this in bios so I'm not seeing fake temps?

Are you sure that SV12 TFN is the actual CPU voltage. Mine is set to 1.418v LLC2 and vcore shows 1.424 to 1.440 in hwinfo when running prime but SV12 TFN shows 1.387. Maximum Tdie goes to 80. Is this normal for a Noctua D15 with 2000rpm fans?
post #2077 of 2746
You can't disable the offset in Taichi afaik, just watch Tdie value in HWinfo.

You can switch fan control to be based on Tctl in BIOS but again, it's just bad with default profile so I just set fan speeds manually using Speedfan.

I can just comment on the last section of your question - I've been running intel burntest today (that seems to be based on linpack) for a while and I got temps up to 80 running on 3900@1.37 with D15 on default fans (I guess you've replaced them with industrial PPCs?) so probably you're fine
I actually never seen similar temps before while running aida, for instance
And ofc never seen that in real world scenarios

Temperatures sounds about right, your voltage is pretty high (I'm using D15 too with stock fans)

I noticed that SVI2 shows a pretty low voltage on load but afaik that should be the actual voltage reading. Mine's @ 1.394V with offset and drops down to 1.375V on load with LLC3 on BIOS 3.10.

Feel free to correct me tho if I'm wrong.

I cleared the CMOS and also removed the battery and waited 5min just for the heck of it. Here's what my UEFI settings look like after posting to bios. I did F9 - loaded defaults and then F10 saved and entered the bios again.

These are my defaults settings right after clearing CMOS: Sierra I will begin the steps you gave me and then I'll report but if anyone can spot anything suspect in these pics please let me know or if there is anything I can configure to give me better results. I am fighting against a very horrible 00 error where my monitor goes to stand by mode if I play GTA V for about 5 min or when I'm running Cenebench 11.5. Sometimes when it does complete I'm getting a very low score.
