Asrock X370 Taichi Overclocking Thread - Page 227

post #2261 of 2553
ASUS has more resources to work with compared with Asrock. They're a bigger company.There is no doubt ASUS has invested more human resources into their BIOs.

Seeing how you returned your CPU as well, I am not sure if it is even the motherboard that was 100% at fault. Chew* noted CPUs with low VID tend to have more issues with p-states and the multi bug.

That sucks you're having so much trouble. I too have the Tiachi and the 1800X. Mine is smooth as silk, right outa the box. 3 months now, and not a glitch. 4 hard drives and 2 M2 module running. running at 3.7 OC and ram at 3066. You must have gotten the Lemon pile. Hope it gets better for you.

I bought mine almost 2 months ago and It's been running fine. Only thing I don't like about this board is the long boot times when using AM4 boot training.

I agree and I originally wanted to go with Asus one but when I learned that ASSrock has a better power phase built it in (8_4) and few other extra things I figured I give them a try...

Nah I doubt it man, the p-states issue is an issue with assrock only and noone else. I compared this stepping vs the other one and its same so its not the CPU it was the assrock mobo with flaky bios/pcb, who knows. For this reason I will never touch them again. I understand every mobo has their issues but this issue is unwarranted & inexcusable by them. You do NOT release a mobo with power/voltage issues, period. They were under the impression all AMD cpu's use same power/voltages lol

you understand ?

if it became stable then we would have known it was the ram running unstable at a faster speed, but it hasnt

the problem can be anything still

what wattage is the power supply?
what brand is the psu?
have you connected all the power cables to the card ?

thats just three things that could be the problem

theres many more things

Yeah, I understand. The Psu is an EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply. I made sure the connection between the psu and gpu clicked when I was setting it up after getting the gpu Rma'd.

I believe that there working ones out there but why should it be a luck of the draw? I've read about this in other forums and it is a same nightmarish experience for others, where people r getting black screen during GTA V, BF1 on a 1800x due to unstable voltages the cpu is getting under load. I'm guessing the new batch of them was a total phuck up. Like i said, the dude at Microcenter told me they've been waiting for a new pile of Taichi for over a month now...wonder why?

Set it to sleep instead of shutting it down. Waking from sleep is faster than booting anyway.

Everyone gets a lemon now and then, doesn't mean the issue is chronic.

I did a lot of research last night and BOY I'm a such happy camper now. Not sure if you read my recent ASSrock issues I was having in the past few days but If i hadn't done benches via CPU-Z and Cinebech I wouldn't have discovered that my 1800x was running at 4 core performance. This was by far the single worst god damn experience I've ever had with a motherboard. That Taichi + 1800x was a nightmare to get it to work stable in default settings. Why should ANYONE need to play around with the bios to get a stable working environment without the OC attempts? ASSrock is aware of this issue and it seems as if they are not sure what they are doing or if it's fixable.

It is almost as if I somehow booted up using x1800 on an Intel Assrock Taichi mobo, no joke man. I too was getting exactly what you are getting when playing games. My monitor would just turn off and would get a "00" debug code, this means CPU isn't working right due to a flaky motherboard's bios. This would also happen if/when I would run Cinebench, my screen would freeze and black screen and 00 debug code. The funny part is I had everything running at default. My memory was at stock 2400mhz and tested stable in memtest86 for 6 hours so memory was fine and most likely the CPU was fine too. Don't waste your time and return that pathetic buggy motherboard. I kind a feel sorry for people who invested in this mobo and i bet half of owners probably are not even aware their 1800x is running half speed. lol I agree the mobo looks good and looks good on paper and you get a lot for the money but if the soul of the mobo (bios) isn't ripe then it has no stable personality. I felt like i was working with a mobo with down syndrome. Return that POS dude. It's not your 1080 bcuz i have a 1080 too and runs perfectly. I can guarantee you if you swap it out tomorrow all of your troubles will go away. I mean, even chew dude on here proved the mobo needs a lot of fixing, and most likely it'll probably need a new PCB revision as Microcenter had 6 of them for sale as open box and none in stock as new. I asked the agent there and he even said that they are not sure why they haven't gotten any new stock for a over a month now. You know why? ASSrock probably knows they were selling bricks/lemons. They wasted so many hours of my time I feel like suing them for it. God damn Pathetic.

Look at me now:



Notice how I'm not anymore getting the multi bug at 550Mhz like i was before during 100% load. And also my max turbo is also working perfectly at 4.1Ghz as well. This wasn't present on the ASSfhuckachi at all.

Before:





Microcenter has a very nice deal going now - even better than when I got the Taichi. You receive a $50 instant discount if u purchase mobo+cpu. I ended up returning the x1800 as well and got me a full microcenter store credit. I ended up paying only $24 more to get this fully operational motherboard + 1800x. Total was $539.98 + Tax brand new and sealed. You will not need to mess around with the bios to be able to run 100% stable. Remove it from your case, dump it back in the box and divorce it. smile.gif

Go flash 1401 bios on your c6h tell me what you think about asrock then wink.gif btw heads up there is no workaround on ch6 with 1401 bios.
Just saying if your gonna compare do apples to apples...either with the bios fix or with bugged multi on both.

Asus had same bug till 1501 bios and um there other boards afaik still have it.

So basically the motherboard is still not the issue.

Its the bios as I have said all along wink.gif
