GIGABYTE GA-AX370-Gaming K5 *&*&^^^^^ - Page 2

1.80 on Dynamic VCOR gives me 1.41 volts. It holds 3.9 stable in AIda64 with a max temp during the stress test of 68C. This temp doesn't seem bad with my old corsair H55 AIO. I might be able to go higher if I can figure out what the hell all the other Dynamic crap is.

Well seem AMD RYZEN Master Utility seems to be able to set specific voltages. You just need to set Bios to defaults so it reads volts right.

The problem might be that if you do not use the BIOS offset you might not boot into some higher overclocks. Though I've rarely seen that be a problem. You can combine bios offset and Ryzen Master for some higher voltages than BIOS allows alone.

For example max offset is +0.300V in bios. So if your base VCore is 1.18750 as mine 1700 has you can not get more than 1.488V through bios but adding Ryzen Master I can change the base Vcore higher and get more.

Right now I use +0.300V offset and have Ryzen Master set for 1.21250V and get a stable 1.500V thumb.gif
Mine 1700 needs that 1.500V to be somewhat stable @4.0Ghz. (everyday usage) passes 1hour Realbench stress test.

Mine will do 3.95Ghz with +0.300 offset only and pass IBT AVX but I needed 1 more click on the volts to be Prime95 custom blend stable. Bios could not do it alone. mad.gif

Max voltage recommended is not more than 1.450V, or 1.425V for short periods or 1.350V 24/7 according to AMD (various posts and articles)

So I'm taking a risk to reach 4.0Ghz on my chip.

I have just gotten my 1700 / Gaming K5 build running, and i'm quite happy with the motherboard. My current setup is :-

  • 1700 @ stock (under volt using the offset voltag)
  • 16GB DDR4-3200 CL16 (Hynix) modules running at 2666mhz (XMP + 26.66 RAM multi)
  • R9 290 4GB


The install and setup went very smooth, put the build together and it all booted 1st time (with ram at 2100mhz default) to both windows and Linux fine. CPU auto voltage was also very good and kept the CPU running cool on the stock wraith cooler. I also haven't had any of these soft brick issues other have had with gigabyte boards.


Some other notes on this motherboard :-

  • At the moment its limited to setting VCORE voltage by offset (i'm guessing that will change in the next load of bios updates)
  • 2666mhz is the maximum it will do with hynix modules on the F2 BIOS (iv tried 2933 SoC @ 1.1-1.2v , DRAM @ 1.4v and 16/18/18/38 with no luck just reboots at POST)
  • Looks amazing, the neutral colours really do go well with anything (RGB is a plus but i'm not a huge fan)
  • Works 100% with current Arch Linux live USB
  • Audio jacks seem to be pretty interference free
