Ryzen MSI GCP Ram don't know what to trust...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so pretty new to the "Overclocking scene" but I have a Ryzen 1700x on a MSI GCP and was trying to at least get my Ram running at a decent speed. So I figured I would give it a shot (F4-3000C15D-16GTZR) Windows show's 1067, CPU-Z shows 1599.6 and I'm not even sure I adjusted the settings correctly. Can someone let me know if I've done something wrong or missed a step, I used the Ryzen Master software because MSI Bio's would not let me change anything or appeared to not change anything at all.

You have three sources that display memory clock speed. Two agree and one disagrees. Believe CPU-Z and Ryzen Master. Why Windows disagrees is anyone's guess. Did you reboot after modifying the memory clock speed in Ryzen Master? If not, try it. Windows may only query the clock speed once when it boots up.

Also, if MSI's BIOS is anything like Gigabytes, you change CPU and memory voltage and timing values using the + and - keys.

Hello Proximo, Yes I have rebooted and Windows still show's 1067, I guess I'm more questioning as to is this really OC'ed or not and are my settings ok or to high or low. I used the ryzen master and clicked the up arrow twice on the Mem vddio, mem vtt and vddcr soc. and the memory I have is a CL15-16-16-35 1.35v so I made them all 17's and RAS to 39 as shown in the image.

I would believe Ryzen Master and CPU-Z. If you google "Windows 10 ram speed incorrect", there are tons of reports just like yours. It's a quirk, or a bug, in the Windows 10 task manager.

If you want to be absolutely sure, reset the memory to 15-15-15-36 2133 w RAM voltage of 1.2v (i.e. the JDEC standard for DDR4 RAM) then download and run Passmark Performance Test's memory test:

Then overclock the RAM and re-run the memory test. If the second run is faster, your overclock was successful and Windows is lying to you. If it's the same, CPU-Z and Ryzen Master are lying to you. I doubt they are.

Also, you should set your memory timing and voltage to that listed on it's packaging first. Those should give you the RAM's rated speed. If this is unstable then you can play with slightly different timings or a bit higher voltage but try the manufacturer's recommendation first.
