Perhaps you need the rest?

Correct me if I'm wrong, neither of those apps show BGSA?

ProcODT was also in the pipeline, TBH I think The Stilt should let you crack on with AMD and gain us info and release updated tool whistle.gif .

For me RTC has been essential on Ryzen/ThreadRipper, compact with all info needed.

Just do it as a simple Dialog Box application in Visual Studio. That was a template in the older versions that I used. You just have to place all of those static text controls in the frame with the GUI editor, then pump the info into them from C/C++ and show.

Both do, while i don't always agree with the stilt, he is a immeasurable help. And deserves thanks, not drama. So from me @The Stilt thanks for what you do.

Windows Defender complained this morning about RTC and removed it. Just tried to add an exclusion for it but Defender ignores the rtc executable. Looks like I need to wait for the new version.

Reputable AV providers such as F-Secure, Kaspersky or Symantec don't do that.

I totally agree about lesser AV being often the problem.
Before I used Kaspersky (there is even a free version now!), I was on Avira AntiVir. And AntiVir also stated that AISuite3 is a virus/trojan,....
Since I use Kaspersky there is no problem with your software. And if the leading antivirus company would not be able to find this "dangerous" piece of software, why would lesser be able?

Thanks for your work!

Nothing malicious to report in terms of AV related issues, but after using RTC my system reverted back to safe settings following a system restart. I'm not sure why this happened but it took several resets before I was able to successfully re-apply DOCP settings and boot at 3200MHz again.

All of the memory related registers on Ryzen are write protected by the PSP (platform security processor), meaning they can be only changed by the PSP. For the same reason the application doesn't support changing any of the timings. This behavior is typical when the warm reset fails due to unstable settings. Increasing the "Fail CNT" option under DRAM timings in bios should cure that, but obviously it doesn't fix the original reason why the training failed in the first place.

Ryzen Timing Checker 1.02

Here's the new version of RTC.
It's been written in C#, meaning AutoIT is no longer present in any shape or form. This should prevent all of the false positive detections, regardless if they were previously made by stand-alone AV applications or by the Windows Defender.

Version 1.02 also fixes the issue where the timings are read incorrectly with certain single channel memory configurations (A1 or B1 slot populated).

As of 17/12/2017 the VirusTotal detection rate is 0/67 and the Windows Defender definitions with the same date clear it as well.
https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/c472dd359bed46d129641cc3541c6229cc785eb3d35cfb9d9a712e73bdfb25ad/detection

.NET Framework 4.5 or newer is now a hard requirement, however that basically only applies to Windows 7 since Windows 10 comes equipped with it out of the box.

The ring0 driver (WinRing0) used by RTC to access the necessary hardware registers is open source, meaning you don't have to use the included precompiled WinRing0 libraries in case you are paranoid. The source code for compatible WinRing0 driver can be found from GitHub: https://github.com/QCute/WinRing0/releases/download/1.3.0/WinRing0_1_3_0.zip

Note: Like with the older versions, you must run RTC with admin rights. This can be either done manually (right click -> run as Admin) or setting the permanent admin rights from the exe properties.
