updating to 5007 never helped me get stable at 3200 with a 2700x.
Biggest factor was the memory controller on the 3700x.

Update:

I have all the timings in my last screen shot, stressed it overnight with lower tRP and tRC.

Not really for me. It is actually worse for boosting than the previous BIOS but not enough for me to flash back. I think it's not worth updating to these newer BIOSes unless you have Zen 2 until they iron out these issues.


@galadar Those timing at 3600 look great hope it works out stable.

I went back to 5007 BIOS because it has a better boost algorithm. Both BIOSes are stable at the same RAM settings but 5007 is a lot faster for gaming where most games will hold at 4.3GHZ on 5007 and only 4225Mhz on 5204 BIOS. On 5007 all cores hit 4.4Ghz at some point on 5204 only 2 cores hit 4.375Ghz and the others never go above 4.3ghz.

well... drat... my idea of testing out the 3900x got delayed or even cancelled... finances related... oh well... guess this lowly little 2700x will have to do... lol

Intel who?

@Minotaurtoo NVM the 2700x still rocks!

Even with PBO disabled it still allows the PBO scalar to work. I now use PBO scalar 3x which allows the CPU to boost slightly higher in 4 core and 8 core workloads my clocks are about 25-50Mhz higher in games. The PBO disabled limits still keeps the CPU cooler and restrained when all cores are being used.

For anyone interested I tested 2x16GB Dual Rank Micron E-Die (3000 15-16-16) in this motherboard and got good results.

SOC Voltage 1.056v. VDIMM 1.405v.
