I bought this board about a week ago before I found this forum post.

I'm having fairly good luck so far with the latest 1405 BIOS with a 3900X and Noctua NH-U12s cooler.

I'm absolutely convinced that some negative voltage offset is desirable at least with the amount of cooling I have on this board, with this BIOS, with this chip. Currently running -0.06875. My maximum smallest fft temps with Prime95 are around 87c, with stock auto voltage they'd bump 95c. My Cinebench score also rose, and as far as I can tell I'm still boosting to 4500 to 4600mhz with single thread loads. My package power consumption reported by HWMonitor dropped to around 171 watts from 183 watts under the worst all-core loads I can come up with (small fft prime95 with AVX2 on).

Anyway, currently my best Cinebench R20 score is around 7258, AIDA64 reported memory read speed 55163MB/s.

I've hard terrible luck with the Ryzen memory calculator so I'm not using that. I have 4 16GB DIMMS of Trident Z Neo, 18-22-22-42 Micron CRJ RAM. I'm able to run them at 16-18-18-39 timings with a tRC of 58 with no issues whatsoever with a slight voltage bump to 1.370. I've run memtest86 for 8 hours and Prime95 blend for 12 hours.

Under realistic all-core loads like Handbrake my temps are in the mid to high 70's Celsius. I get near 90c under absurd synthetic loads. I've decided to upgrade to a Noctua NH-U14s which I should have tomorrow sometime in hopes of keeping worst case temps below 85c and maybe getting slightly better boost speeds.

Needless to say the 3900X is massively faster than my old 6700k 4.3GHz all-core overclock system even for most single thread workloads so thus far I'm quite happy with it. If I had to buy the board over again I'd probably spend a bit more on a better Gigabyte model.
This board and the 3900x replaced my i7-6700k with all cores at 4.5ghz OC. Glad to see single thread results better for you thus far. I am going to be messing with my memory OC and cpu oc settings in the next few days to see what I can do. I have a old H110i AIO cooler that I am using, and out of the box stock I am not seeing temps much over 75*C.

Did you put the RAM in Slots 2 & 4 (counting away from CPU)? For dual sticks you are supposed to use those. I have the same exact RAM and had problems until I found out about that. Good RAM btw, Hynix DJR and mine overclock pretty well considering how cheap they are.
Yes they're in the proper slots. Haven't had any issues with the system and it passed memtest so I'm calling it good. Monoblock arrives tomorrow but won't have time to tear down the water loop and run full Mayhems blitz cleaning until next weekend. Putting a block on the ram too because.... screw it the block was pretty cheap haha. I even have an ancient EK chipset block that was originally for either AM2 or AM3 boards that fits the Southbridge on this board.

So ya btw, the EK Strix-E monoblock fits this board people...

I would argue, yes, its a great board and should be future ready for the zen 3 coming later this year. Zen 3 will be the last AM4 socket, which will also have 40% (or is that 60%) less heat and power usage than the zen 2; so in the long run you can't go wrong, VRM should be overkill for an overclocked Zen 3 4950x 16 core cpu.

Its only competition is the Aorus Elite, and that has a slightly inferior VRM, PCB, and cooling; the only board that might outdo it will be the Tomahawk x570, coming out between now and March.

As for ram, I recommend G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) INTEL Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16D-32GVKC; that is what I'm using.

Its really the Trident Z Neo RGB F4-3600C16D-32GTZNC for Ryzen but without RGB & $35-$45 dollars less.



First available in October 2019. Market value is $144.99. Hynix D-die (Davinci). Says for "intel" but works perfect with Ryzen motherboards. I'm running stock/auto XMP timings 16-19-19-39 at 3800 mhz O/C, 1:1 1900 infinity fabric, 67.9 latency @ 1.37500 volts (I can reduce the voltage further), with my Ryzen 3600. 3733-3800 is the sweet spot on Ryzen, any further is pointless. Almost as good as the $500+ B die 32 GB kits. B-die gets you 16-16-16, rather than 16-19-19. Marginal at best. 16 gigs of B die goes for $250. Is it worth the three extra nano seconds and 16 gigs less ram, for $100 more dollars? Here we have 32 gigs of very high quality Hynix ram. With two spare slots, I can later upgrade to 64 in 5-10 years if I like. Hynix protects against Rowhammer vulnerability better than any other brand as far as studies have shown. Best gigabyte and performance per dollar value on the market. They are rising the price sometimes up to $250 on these (or more) for obvious reasons. I bought it at $144.99, it was more than worth every penny, and at the time of this post you can find it hovering around $159.

tyezh OC VRM sweet spots I have found with Ryzen 3600 and this board: Dropping SOC voltage from 1.0 to 0.95 drops CPU temps by 10-15 degrees, possibly up to 17 degrees. (default soc voltage is 1.1) Anything under 0.96875 @ 4.125 ghz was unstable for me; but there was a 3-4 degree difference between 0.95 and 0.96875

I've got my 3600 running perfectly stable at 4,125, stock cooler, 1.31875v / 0.96875 Socket, with a CPU Load line calibration set to 5;

Under normal/idle casual conditions voltage hovers between 1.344-1.352, for more snappy performance. Under heavy load it drops to 1.32-1.328

If you want to seriously undervolt, using a high LLC is extremely useful; if you are going to overvolt, you want a lower llc.

Some numbers to consider playing with:

1.3500v @ 0.95 soc, Auto LLC (load line calibration) VDDR SOC LLC auto. Stable temps and voltage in OCCT.
1.3125v @ 0.95 soc, 5 CPU LLC (important), VDDR SOC LLC auto. most stable temps and voltage over all.
1.31875v @ 0.96875 5 CPU LLC (this is what I use, its highly undervolted and running perfectly stable in windows/gaming/encoding for a month. A little touchy after 20 minutes OCCT but thats perfectly fine; passed 1 hour in linpack.

I have the same ram & 3600 non x, not really, its not super fast, feels maybe 13-18 fps and lags but its tolerable.

Figured everything would just work with no adjusting considering the RAM is on the QVL and Ryzen 3000 is supposed to like 3600MHz RAM.

Running a 3600x on this board with G.Skill Ripjaws 32GB (2 x 16GB) F4-3600C16D-32GVKC on an open air test bench. Everything is bonestock except loading DOCP profile. BIOS is still on 1201 which it shipped with.

Edit: it passed Passmark's free Memtest86 no errors, hmmm.

timezone12 Hi All
Love this board I think it's great but I have a problem with the bios. I have 2 external hard drives 1 8tb wd store and 1 4tb seagate now here is the strange problem, without the usb drives plugged in the computer cold boot takes up to 5 to 15 seconds to get into windows. With the drives in it takes up to 55 to 65 seconds. Has anyone ever seen this before? Drives are formatted in gpt. Also same thing happens on my asus b450 as well. Thanks

Gunderman456 I just watched a builzoid video :

and he suggests PBO 300-230-230-x4 (on a Gigabyte board but he relayed that they all work the same).

Anyone has had good success with the Asus Tuff board and what PBO numbers are you using??

Gunderman456 This mobo or the Gygabite one in the same price range.

For RAM I got the G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3600 16-19-19-39 CAS Latency 16 1.35V and they are solid with the Asus board.
