Well, I found the weak spot of my system finally. 4400 just needs a hideous amount of IO/SA (think 1.4v+). It failed every single HCI test even on 4400 19-22-22-49-500-2T or something stupid loose like that until I set 1.38v SA 1.34v IO. Then it started to stabilize finally.
4800 can boot but is totally unusable and sometimes just throws a random kernel error when booting and hard resets the system lol.
So, I found out 1.38v SA 1.34v IO works, so I'll leave them there and lower them later. CPU backed off to 4.8 @ 1.28v and 4.5 cache.
I now have a HCI test running on 4133 15-17-17-32-280-2T with 1.6v RAM (1.584v actual) and it is about to go to 200% so the first legs there.
Yes, I know 1.6v is a lot but it needs that for CL15. It won't POST CL15 at 1.50v and barely gets to windows on 1.55v so yeah..
If this is stable I'm going to drop tWR and tCWL as low as they go without erroring and that's about it for 4133Mhz. Then it's off to see if I can get CL15 to run 4200. But seeing as how much problems I had getting CL16 to run on 4200 I doubt it..
Then it's more hours and hours of testing to see how low IO/SA can go before erroring out. My guess is around 1.30v ish on this IMC for C15 4133.
By the ways I have to give MSI props for the "Optimized RTL" setting.
It came really close to the lowest it can boot actually. All I could do after was set the RTL Initial to 65 (lower won't POST) and offset 22. 23 boots but totally missed training at like 60-66-5-9.
EDIT: Yes, I know tRAS is probably too low but didn't wanna stop HCI as it was pretty far. I'll correct it next reboot.
