Asrock X370 Taichi Overclocking Thread - Page 228

post #2271 of 2742
C6H also had the sleep issue where fans/pumps stopped after sleep. They released fixed test BIOS like a couple of days ago.
I know a couple dudes who got their CLCs destroyed because the pumps stopped working after sleep.
But sure, C6H is great.

the point is ,we dont even know if he actually had more of a problem with his cpu than the board

appearently he changed that as well

1800x + 1080ti ASUS Strix, 64gb FORTIS Series DDR4 Memory for game dev, my machine runs like a beast! The only thing thats annoying the **** out of me right now is after I turned on virtualization in the bios for vmware, this clicking noise started. The above post say its under load or something and to run a stress test but it comes back after 3 hours of working.

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

I think you meant 1201 as there's no 1401. I was aware of all of the issues that recently plagued the C6H motherboard and spent a great deal of time online reading that other thread and it was concluded the new bios got rid of all of the kinks, which is why I choose it. The mobo just feels more refined as well, oddly enough it feels somewhat heavier than the ASSrock too. Overall it just feels like a more solid motherboard and you can just feel the quality on it all around. Despite ASSrocks 8_4 phase the mobo kind a felt sort of cheap by touch and feel. The PCB felt like cheap recycled plastic. The PCI-e hook lever actually came off when I took out my 1080 for the first time and i had to clip it back on. I also noticed the backplate on this Asus is that of high quality(soft padding) vs the one from aSSrock which had that generic cheap tin foil cover lol.

I watched your last vid, chew. I appreciate you proving that the mobo is displaying different odd behavior between diff CPU stepping. I respect your position and the work you do. I hope I didn't come across like i was undermining the work you do. As a matter of fact, after watching your 2nd vid, gave me confidence for my decision to return both my CPU and mobo for that matter.

I think I may have been this year - the most unlucky guy to receive a bricked cpu and mobo at the same time. But I still believe that ASSrock was the main culprit here with their lemon batch circulating around the web/retails because I'm finding more and more complaints online about the same issue i was having. Imagine how frustrating it must be to go online right now to go find a specific 1800x that won't give you gray hair on that ASSrock mobo becasue it is acting like one whiny little biatch. smile.gif

I ran Cinebech like 100x and not once did I get a low score.. It works perfectly as it should at default and I didn't have to beg to god for a special setting to make it stable. The cpu runs and behaves as designed.

The return agent at Microcenter told me if i wanted the instant $50 discount to apply I will need to return the CPU as well and purchase a new mobo+cpu combo so i was like NP. smile.gif
I doubt it was the CPU. I've built many rigs for myself and family/friends and not once did i have to RMA a cpu. That's just unheard of. Sorry. It was the ASSrock mobo and their bios department who probably never heard of Ryzen before and most likely think its the Bulldozercrapper with a new re brand name. lol

Since you own this board now I suggest reading up on it
http://www.overclock.net/t/1624603/rog-crosshair-vi-overclocking-thread

If you look under bios flashing instructions and then under bios you will see 1401 between 1201 and 1403. So yes there is a 1401 bios.

Have fun in the Asus thread.

oh boy, then should avoid Asus CH6?

I been waiting long enough for bugs to be fix...


so guys, Taichi x370 vs Gigabyte AORUS GA-AX370 Gaming K7???

I been wanting to say same thing, wonder how long till he’ll be giving out advice over there. I don’t even think they’ll put up with him as much as we did. He’ll be at micro center going after an Intel deal within return time is my guess. I’ll be honest, if I were building my computer today, I’d be going With an 8700k as far as right now. Though if AMD is correct and we can use this same board for next 4 chips. I’m not sorry at all. If you could run a Ryzen 7 at 5ghz, it would be a beast. The 8700k is 70 bucks cheaper then the Ryzen 1800x anyway, he prob should have gone that route.

I believe I've found an issue within A-Tuner that allows changes to your system's voltages, and doesn't reflect said change within BIOS or HWINFO. I assume this is working as intended outside of the ability to apply successive voltages from merely clicking "Apply". Said voltage increase will persist through a system restart and won't always reflect in your bios. (vcore didn't change if memory serves correctly, or at least that's what I wrote down.)

I believe this may explain some "new" boards that appear to be performing outside of agreeable deviant. Sadly, in my case, I didn't notice my stock configuration allowed me to boot at nearly 1.5v to the core.

She's stable though.. Just needs a new exorcism and some holy water to remedy the humming sounds.

Sadly no good screenshots due to initial panic. I did let the volts drop, reboot and immediately push through a Cinebench though.
In for a penny, in for a pound eh?

You can reproduce it using default settings (on auto) and adjusting voltages in A-Tuner. If that doesn't work try the fatality's link.

Might break out a pixie measuring device but probably not.

Be safe, kids! Don't be like me!

What are your guys' setting to achieve 3466 LL? I know it's different each set up but what are the common settings and which to undervolt?
