Is there such a thing as "bad ram overclocking slot"? x470 c7hero,zen2 cpu and 32gb ram
Long story short. I've upgraded to 32gb, bought the same exact kit.
Warranty seal says this B-die kit is from 2018, while the 3000% HCI stable one is from 2019.
Resetted cmos, tried the same exact settings, F9 code. Ok, maybe this kit is a bit slower. Couldn't even POST 3733 with 1867 FCLK. Something is clearly wrong.
Upped vddsoc from 1.05 to 1.10. No result. 1.13, no result.
Then tried removing all dimm slot, and plugging only the newest bought 3200c14 kit and it posted 3800c16 settings.
Now, could it be that some slots on my motherboard just overclock badly? If it was the memory controller upping vddsoc would suffice... no?
EDIT: i tried running the same settings i could use with 16gb on the other 2 couple of slots and it doesnt even post. Tried 3800 with auto timings and doesn't post either.
