Hi and many thanks to 1usmus for this great software!
I was able to achieve a decent and superstable overclock with my kinda cheapish rig and i want to share it here. It wasn't easy task and took me many hours of tweaking so i hope it will be useful for other people too
System specs (stock): (was purchased on October 2018)
MSI B450M PRO-M2 with latest bios v2.86
Ryzen 5 1600x 3.6 Ghz
Gigabyte GTX 1060 WINDFORCE OC 3GB
DeepCool Gammax 200T 120mm CPU Fan
Corsair VS550 (HEC) 80 PLUS (white) PSU
Thermaltake Versa H15
AOC G2460VQ6 24" FHD 75 hz
The DDR4 modules are:
2x 8GB HyperX Predator 3000 H5AN8G8NCJR-UHC ( KHX3000C15D4/8GX ) so they are made by Kingston and have Hynix CJR memory.
1) The first step was the CPU oc with the Ryzen pushed to 3.9 Ghz and 1.32v. Probably i could get more from it, but since im on air cooling and summers can be blazing hot here i will not go any further with it.
2) Then i pushed "a little" the 1060 with a 120 and 520 Mhz oc to Core and Memory respectively with MSI Afterburner.
3) After this i decided to venture on ddr4 overclock. This step was kinda frustrating, fun and tricky at the same time
The dimms are rated for this XMP certified profile (from Thaiphoon Burner):
1502 Mhz 15-17-17-36 @1.35v
I tried to use xmp button at first from dram calculator to get latencies but they are different from the taiphoon ones, so i decided to go straight up with debug mode and get XMP latencies from there.
After a LOT of BSODs and failed posts i finally got a stable @3466 Mhz 16-19-19-38
Key timings and values for this result were:
DRAM set to 1.43v
tRFC 523 (454 didnt work so used alt)
SOC set to 1.1
CLDO_VDDP 0.820 (apparently the "magic" 0.866 didnt work here)
tFAW set to 23 (from 32 suggested by calculator)
ProcODT 53.3, RttNOM 34, RttWr Dynamic ODT off, RttPark 48 ohms
CAD_BUS values -> all 20 ohms
I Got 400% error free results with Memtest HCI and several good runs with RealBench and AIDA64 stress tests. I got a random BSOD with RealBench once though and probably i will need to investigate FAN speed curves of CPU and case (CPU diode reached 80C° with RealBench and AIDA, guess im gonna remove OC settings on hottest days of this summer...).
Will update soon with some screenshots of bios and dram calculator. Can anyone explain me where are the VTT DDR settings on my motherboard? Also couldnt find VDDP, VPP and PLL ones
