It wasn't 62 but b2 (e.g. there is none top horizontal line)
The BIOS freezes are coupled with the very small text "4b" in the right lower corner. I also got some weird reboot loops (like every few seconds) that could be interrupted only by powering off the system
It seems to be memory-related so that CPU voltage changes I made were once again a placebo-effect
So I decided to start from a scratch and resetted the bios (not by the button but by removing the battery this time)
I manually restored most of the settings (e.g not from saved profiles - set the cpu to 3900 and 1.37 voltages for both the VID and VCORE, SoC voltage to 1.05, slightly reduced the VDDP, picked the 3200 XMP profile, 1T command ratio, enabled Geardown)
I guess I need more clarification in memory settings that I barely touched previously.
Again, my ram kit is dual-rank F4-3200C14D-32GTZR
2x16gb with default timings 14-14-14-341.
Should I really go with 1T+GD ON or 2T ratio is preffered in case of dualrank modules? From what I know 2T provides less performance but its not fully clear for me how this works and how big is the impact2.
What procODT can be used in my case? It was on auto till this point. I haven't touched that yet because the system performed mostly fine last couple of days but it seems that I will need more tweaking and test everything more thoroughly (I generally avoided very long testing sessions, e.g. after waiting an hour or so I assumed that I'm mostly fine)3.
What about the "bank group swap"? I've read the recommendation (not sure about the source) to set it to "bankGroupSwap enabled" and "bankGroupSwapAlt disabled". Currently I decided to left this on auto and it is basically the opposite (e.g. Alt enabled, "normal" bankGroupSwap is disabled)4.
Maybe any other suggestions to get it stable at 3200?
I really wish to get the most of my system but this tweaking process takes a plenty of time and becoming more annoying. Will I lose much if everything will fail and I'll just stay within 2933-3066 range? (speaking of games and adobe software that I mostly work with - I'm using this PC both as my workstation and gaming pc)
