Ok, all of those bioses are equipped with the newer PMU firmware (01.50 a.k.a "46").
It's a long shot, but you could try if the older firmware (01.46 a.k.a "42") works any better.

9920-SP42M

No other changes besides the PMU FWs.

Use Flashback to update.

Leave all of the DRAM related parameters to default settings for starters, except the ProcODT.
I would start testing from 80Ohms.

Stilt - so your gut feeling is it is more future proof / easier to OC with current AGESA / BIOS on 2x16 dual ranks or 4x8 singles?

Thanks, I'll give it a go when I get back home, I was under the impression that the older firmware was better for SR B-Die though (similar to 9943 vs 9945)?

I currently use 0.9V SoC with the 3066MHz timings I previously posted but I bump this up to 1.1V for testing 3200MHz, do you suggest I leave this at Auto for testing ProcODT first or go for 1.1-1.2V?

1.05V should be pretty good for any chip. Some CPUs don't like >= 1.100V VDDCR_SOC at all.

It is significantly easier to make 4x SR to work at high speed / tight timings than 2x DR, at least in case of B-die.
DR modules themselves are of course more future proof / retain their value better, for obvious reasons.

OK - this is what I saw in post from past week.
Maybe stupid question - do manufacturer "paired" 4x8 are really better than 2 sets of 2x8 (talking about g.skill [email protected])?

I would assume the ability to add 2 more sticks in future. vs a 2DPC setup.

Hi everyone,

up until now I was only observing this thread closely. However the last few days I tried to get my system cold boot stable and this has been bothersome. So I wanted to confirm what the cold boot "bug" really is or what it isn't.

On cold boot (as in PSU was unplugged before) I'am currently experiencing one power off before normal boot, presumably the system needs to set the oc voltages on first boot. I'am not losing settings or P-State OC. Is this already considered the cold boot bug or is this normal behavior?

Otherwise the system is stable and as I said i'am not loosing settings on cold boot.
So i'am wondering what the bug really is...
When this is considered normal behavior I can finally stop putting hours of trial and error into it. :-D

Thanks for your help,

TheHawk

No, as long as the sticks are actually identical (same ICs).
