tridentz gskill pc3600 for (AMD) ddr400 issue
ok, ill try and be simple. i just built a new pc im not new to the game ive built plenty in the past. i purchased some gskill newegg item G.SKILL Trident Z RGB (For AMD) 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 Model F4-3600C18D-16GTZRX.
When i first set things up i was able to see xmp profile 2.0 and 1.0 in my bios. after further researching i updated to newer bios because it added amd support for my ryzen 2700x and corrected the issue with faster ram speeds. After updating to bios f8 for gigabyte gaming 7 rev 1.0 wifi am4+x470
i was able to achieve 3600mhz with both sticks in slot 1,3 seeing how the manual for dual channel recommended those slots. After an update to bios f8 or installing my new video card i noticed that it said when i restarted the computer it just randomly stated that the bios was reset and xmp profile 2.0 disappeared. i have tried troubleshooting using only one stick of ram and it runs fine 3600mhz no issue with xmp in bios. and ive switched out the other and the same. so the ram isnt the issue. ive tried manually setting the timings and moving the voltage to 1.35 but everytime it restarts the computer and resets. Now it says 3600mhz in bios but in windows task manager and cpuz it isnt running at full speed. ive even tried setting it at just 2300 mhz just to see what happens and nothing. im not sure what happened but i cant get it to run at 3600mhz again or any thing over 2133. i bought this ram and i want to get something out of it i just need to see what happened or what setting im missing. any help is appreciated but my pc runs great on games max settings and all that blah but i want to utilize what i paid for.
