3600MHz Ram possible on Asus STRIX X370?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Can't seem to get my G.Skill 3600MHz CL16 (b-die) ram working on the STRIX X370. I have tried setting the D.O.C.P profiles and even manually setting DRAM speed, timings and voltages but it just doesn't boot.

Is it the motherboard or the processor restricting my RAM from running at this speed?

So what speed is running? Try ryzen timing calculator programm for settings that might work.

I have the same board but different RAM.

So I tried again with D.O.C.P standard and it booted after cycling through a couple times.
It's clearly not stable as I got a bluescreen on the login page.
Got into Windows now somehow so will stress test it now.
No overclock on the CPU btw all stock.

3600MHz crashing immediately on prime95 blend test.
So does 3466MHz
3333MHz at loose timings has been running now for a few minutes without crashing.

Is it the motherboard messing me up or the processor?

It's Ryzen. Unless you have a good motherboard like the ASUS Crosshair VI, a very good IMC in your SOC, a profound understanding of what you are doing and a ton of time for testing, the 3600 MT/s with decent timings are out of reach for you.
You should settle for 3333 MT/s and when you have learned enough about Ryzen and it's quirks with RAM, go for 3466.

As a starting point:

DRAM Frequency. DDR4-3333
DRAM Voltage: 1.4v (you can lower that later)
VDDSOC: 1.075v
ProcODT: 53 Ohm
RttNom: RZQ/7
RttWr: Off
RttPark: RZQ/5

For Timings try The Stilts recommended settings for B-die:

or just use 1usmus' Ryzen DRAM Calculator

If it runs stable at 3200 MHz then I tend to agree that you might be topped out on it. 3200 does seem to be the sweet spot for Ryzen chips. If it won't even work at 3200 then you could have some faulty sticks or another problem with the motherboard. The Strix X370 can handle 3200 MHz all day long and so should your Ryzen chip.
