Don't get me wrong, my 3700x worked just fine using the CH6; no BSOD or anything serious that would prevent me from using my PC. Very possible 100% functioning. I solely jumped ship because I'm 100% certain these 3000 series CPU's work best on an X570 platform. I'm not seeing sporadic CPU voltage spikes or boost issues on this board like i did on CH6. During certain game-play, i see cpu frequency hitting 3466Mhz...and did i mention how many more FPS i'm getting over my retired 1800x? It's almost as if I got a new gen GPU. It was def. worth the wait for me.

I got it solely because it comes with 2x M.2 SSD ports & 8 x SATA ports. I love them extra SATA ports because I'm a drive fanatic. I currently have 6x SATA SSD's for Steam/Origin games and 1xM.2's for Win-10 boot. This thing boots like in 5 seconds, I couldn't believe it. This leaves room for additional expansion like Raid 0 using M.2's and more SATA drivers

You really can't go wrong with this board for the price.

deehoC I'm having a very strange issue ever since I updated to BIOS 7403 today from 7201.

If I set my Memory Clock/Fabric Clock above 3733/1867 my CPU performance suddenly drops a lot lower than I've ever seen for a 3700x.

Previously on 7201 I was running stock CPU settings in terms of Voltage/Core Ratios so it would boost on it's own and just tweaked my Memory/Fabric Clocks to 3800/1900 and tightened up my timings and I was getting good performance and I thought it was stable.

I reset my CMOS and set my BIOS to optimized defaults, saved those settings and booted then slowly changed all my settings and timings appropriately while rebooting in between and everything goes fine up til 3733/1867 then setting 3800/1900 it just goes to crap. Does anyone have a clue as to whats happening here?

I've attached a bunch of screenshots, the first 2 should be of an overnight Karhu Ram Test and my Ryzen Master window for all my timings, then a normal CB15 run and then the really butchered CB15/CPU-Z runs. After those screenshots I'm adding all of my previously stable BIOS Settings which I manually input one by one after updating to 7403.

Apologies in advance I can't seem to find the way to spoiler tag my attached images in the Advanced Post section now, will try to edit it after the fact to clean this post up a bit so it isn't so long.

baro55 Hello


I use 3700x and asus c6h 7403. Now i have an overclocked cpu. it is 4.2ghz 1.2375v 3200mhz cl16. It works stable. I can test in cbr20 and cbr15 repeadely and i dont get any error. It is golden chip ?


4.25 ghz works with 1.28v .

Was hoping kind folks in this thread could share their wisdom and experience on the matter.

I have a CH6 mobo + 2700(non X) CPU and ever since i got it(about 6 month ago), i couldn't get my system to work stable at 3200Mhz memory settings and above.
First, I`ve been using Corsair 3200 kit (Hynix AFR chips). And system just crushed after a minute or so after boot with 3200 setting. I tried XMP, manual, timing tweaking, memory voltage boost. Nothing works. As soon as I set 3200 MHz - system starts crushing. 3133 and below - and everything is super stable.
At first, I thought I just got unlucky with memory kit.
Few days ago, i decided to switch to HyperX Predator HX436C17PB3/8 (2 sticks). It`s a samsung B-die chips(K4A8G085WB-BCRC), high speed, mediocre timings and good price for a b-die.
The thing is, with these sticks problem remains the same. Anything above 3133 - unstable within minutes. Difference is, on Corsair kit - system hang completely. With these new - only application crushes.
No matter what timings I use, what voltage, CPU overclocked or not - it will not work above 3133.
For now, using memory calculator, I set everything 14, 14, 14, 30, 44 with 3133Mhz (1,36 volt) and everything works fine. but still. It should work above 3200? Right?

What could cause this? Really unlucky memory controller? Maybe faulty motherboard? Have any one experienced something like that?
I do want to switch to 3700x eventualy. But desided to wait a litle for more feedback and stable bios.



And on top of that, got a really weird one too.
These new stick I use, have issue i have never heard before and could not even google something similar.

Whenever I set CAS to 15 or 17(manual or XMP, does not matter), after reboot it always sets to +1. 16 and 18 accordingly.

It only behaves like that with 15 and 17. With 14, for example, or any other number, everything is set correctly.
Is it a bios bug? Right now I`m using 6903. Still waiting for something stable above that.



Thank you in advance for your comments and replys.
back when I had c6h and 1700x, the very first 1700x I had was unable to do 3200Mhz w/ Flare-X kit either., stuck @ 2933 regardless how hard I tried.
After I replace it with a different 1700x, I had no trouble overclock the memory at all.
So my 2 cents is that it could be the memory controller on the CPU.
But you will need a CPU to test with.

Thank you in advance for your comments and replys.
The odd numbers issue is because you are using geardown mode which rounds the odd numbers up.

Your ram instability sounds like your CPU has a bad IMC. When I had a 2700X nothing would be stable over 3200Mhz with Samsung b-die. With the same mobo and ram with a Zen 2 processor I am currently running at 3600Mhz.

The only way to really know is to try another CPU in your board and see if it can get to 3200MHz stable. My money would be on the CPU rather than the mobo.

Then i noticed that in Bios and in Windows with HWiNFO64 the voltage readings are off from the voltages i manually inputted. Is this normal? I searched the forum and the net but i found mixed answers.

CPU SOC Voltage Manual: 1.1 Reading: 1.11
DRAM Voltage Manual: 1.2 Reading: 1.22
1.8 PLL Voltage Manual: 1.8 Reading: 1.853
1.05V SB Voltage Manual: 1.05 Reading: 1.035
Perfectly normal, superio chip's ADC accuracy is just not that high. It has around 22-44mv stepping depending on the sensor
