thank you for your work.
Just now tested the new bios 3101 on my system.
Or better: DOUBLE WOW
3600 Mhz ram and 1800 Inifinity at first shot, without touching nothing (not so good the timings).
So, I immediately decided to start a meddle overclock of MY CPU with my standard settings, +0200Vcore offset and 1.40 ram voltage, The Stilt preset of 3466 Mhz and 3600 Mhz ram profile. Added my Pstate base overclock to A0 and this is the first shot.
THREE TIME CHECKED AIDA, same results.
Only one thing, SIV is reporting my base clock of 75 mhz instead of 100, like windows.
AIDA and HWINfo report my speed correctly, or how I've set in bios.
TO LUCKY also.
As a side note for Anty (if interested) I'm not so sure if I will change my CPU, perhaps later in February... I love it too much now
I don't mean to be a nay-sayer, but I feel you (and lots of others here) are doing people a disservice by not posting extended memtest or cpu burn-in results. I really do hope your settings are stable and want you to be happy about your setup! Please don't misunderstand me!
I have been able to clock my 1800x to 4150-4175 at times, and everything seems fine until stress testing (I was able to complete a Cinebench run occasionally too). It appears that MOST chips hit a wall between 3900-4000MHz and are not truly stable
past that point without pumping lots of extra voltage into the chip, and then heat is the issue because above 80c either the CPU or IMC at load becomes unstable.
Lots of people are coming here, including myself before the realization, thinking that they should be able to hit 4GHz or even 4.1GHz easy with proper cooling. I've tried it with two different 1800X chips (early Samsung fab, later Global Foundries fab) and got the same 3900-4000MHz true stability results. I think there are golden chips out there, but I also think this forum is full of people who dial in an overlock, get in to Windows, and then post here about their results without doing a thorough test.
I'm sorry to rant about this to you, but this new BIOS has been out for less than a day so you couldn't possibly have thoroughly determined if your settings are stable and others are going to come here and think they are and then expect the same.
