Running 3000mhz Hynix RAM on X370

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I helped my friend build a Ryzen PC- It has Asrock Fatal1ty X370 Gaming K4 (on latest bios 3.30), Ryzen 5 1600, and G.Skill Trident Z RGB (F4-3000C16D-16GTZR) which is 2x8gb Hynix 3000MHz CL16 @ 1.35v. We picked up parts at a Microcenter and they had no Samsung B Die in stock.

On the XMP Profile the system fails to POST. It looks like it is even failing memtest on stock 2133mhz BIOS defaults. Is it possible a stick is bad? Or are there any tips for running it at the high frequency? Ultimately should it just be returned for a kit of Samsung B Die?

Different board and ram, but I had luck by starting with no profiles and inputting the timings on the package to get it started, then slowly brought it up one step at a time to 2933. 3200 is unstable. Have you tried that method yet?

Sorry to say but the Gaming K4 is a bad Board to overclock with Ram. I think it is really not designed to go above 2933 MHZ memory clock, even with Samsung B-Die. I saw that in many posts and youtube videos. Even on the product site MSI tells max. 2933.
No wonder MSI rushed the Gamix X Board short after which can reach 3200 more easy.

Hi,

I'm affraid 3200 is not possible on this board, at least with Hynix and current AGESA :-( I'm running TridentZ 3200C16, Hynix MFR single rank 2x8gb

I managed to get 3066 working and stable, but only with relaxed timings and cold boot issues, so it's better to leave @2933 at semi tight timings. No performance difference in my tests.

My settings for 3066 were:

DDR voltage 1.40v
SoC voltage 1.1v
Main Timings 16-18-18-18-38-58, tRfc 560, Geardown disabled, 2T, ProcODT 60 Ohm

Procedure:

- Set UEFI defaults, save and reboot to UEFI
- Set Memory XMP, select @2666 strap, save and reboot to UEFI
- Set voltages, timings, etc, save and reboot to UEFI
- Set @2933 strap, save and reboot to UEFI
- Set @3066 strap, save and reboot

You will have several F9 codes, leave memory training on AUTO and may be increase the training process from default 3 to 5 or 7.

I run @2933 14-16-16-16-36-56, Geardown enabled, ProcODT 60 ohm, DDR voltage 1.375v, SoC 0.94v LLC4, full stable with R7 1700 @3.9Ghz

I run my two RAM sticks on A1/B1 slots btw. On the suggested A2/B2 slots I only managed to get @2800 C14, which for me it shows probably bad design for the memory channels on the board, hence the bad RAM OC potencial.

I don't know if anybody had more luck with Samsung B-Die on this board, but in my experience the X370 K4 is a very capable board for CPU overclocks, but it's not good enough for memory. It needs a lot of fiddling with memory settings to even boot @2933, never see it boot @3200. Lots of cold boot issues too.

Good luck!

Exact same experience. I don't know how far B-die would go on this board, but it seems like 2933 @ cl14 is pretty much as good as it gets.
Sorry AMD

Thanks. I'll try it and report back.
