+1. I have been at this for nearly two months now on and off. I have learned a lot! So I am grateful in that regard. However, I have also learned a lot of grief.
It is worth it, however, I believe for the next machine I purchase in 3-5 years. Hopefully, this pain and knowledge can carry over and the next experience won't be so challenging.
, please consider going forward more attention to 4-stick configurations, as this appears to be the source of all my issues:
4 of 4 double ranks for Ryzen 2700x appear to be very limited by top speed. I ended up using 3000mhz for my 3333mhz set using your Fast settings (14-16-14-17-28). Forgoing PBO for a manual @ 4.25. Scoring 1935-1940 in Cinebench @ 1.375 vCore / 1.05 vSoC / 1.36 vDRAM.
250% pass on MemTest Deluxe (only $14 and very worth it IMO).
FWIW, "Extreme" doesn't work, but would be interested in using it at some point.
But for now I finally have a super fast machine that I can use, and am someone familiar (comfortable, even?) with how its internals work.
, please consider setting up a BTC/ETH address so those of us who want to show some appreciation can throw some your way from afar. Thanks again (and again!) for all your efforts and knowledge!
EDIT: CPU is 4.25 not 4.5, doh. Also, I did use .9 SoC but ended up with 1.05 SoC as this seems to handle the heat better.
