I just upgraded my memory yesterday from G.Skill FlareX DDR4 3200 Cl 14 to G.Skill TridentZ DDR4 4266 CL19-19-19-39 1.40 volts. I wanted to see how far I could get with memory speeds with Ryzen 7 2700X and the new MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC motherboard. After installing the memoryI manually set the speed to 3866mhz and it posted and booted into windows but would crash under cinebench 15. I progressively lowered emeory speedhoping to be stable at perhaps 3600. No dice. I could not pass Y Crunch no matter how I tweaked SOC voltage and dram voltage Proc ODT, etc. Finally at 3466mhz I passed Ycrunch memory torture tests and did Cinebench 15 runs. With bios 1.1 now being officially released and installed the system is not only super stable but my cinebench Open GL score is back up to where it sused to be before the Raven Ridge and Pinnacle bios updates were issued. Now cinebench and windows 10 correctly read cpu speed again.
Remember first generation Ryzen would NOT accept an odd number for CL on memory. No longer an issue. My memory is set at DDR4 3466 CL15-15-15-32-67.
Technology is NOT a liberator . Whom technology serves is a class question.
Technology wielded by the capitalist class benefits only the exploiters.
Technology wielded by the working class will serve ALL Humanity.
