Does ram effect this or is this solely the IMC on board the cpu? I've got 64gb of ram on 4 sticks. This stuff would run 3200 all day on my 1600x. Rather sad if a 3950 can't beat a first gen chip.

Running soc voltage of 1.025 right now. cldo vddp on auto. Tried 1.075 but that didn't allow my uclk to get any higher than 1600. Any suggestions here?
I'd like to help solve your problem, but your problem seems infinitely challenging to solve when in each post you ask more questions.
If you want to gain a solution for something like this, you should put your full settings from bios on here.
have a little look through the bios and see if you can find where to do that.
send one of what you think will work but doesn't if you like.
someone here will let you know if that should or shouldn't work and then you'll know if you actually have a problem.

I see your posts like someone throwing sticks at the moon trying to figure out how far away it is.
Then asking a large group what they think might be wrong with your sticks. They won't hit what you throw them at(without sharing the fact the target is the moon)
and just coming up with reasons why there simply has to be something wrong with your sticks.

people like seeing useful information in this forum, I do.
people like seeing solutions to well explained problems.

please whats the link for these instructions stating 3 flashes for flashing and 5 for failure?

It has to keep blinking in blue while it's flashing the bios, if it does not blink and stays in blue, then try again, make sure the pendrive you are using is compatible, try not to use something larger than 4GB.

howkey[cz] Hi, I just bought a Ryzen 3700x, Crosshair VI Hero and Patriot Viper 4000Mhz kit with b-die. I am able to run it at FCLK 1900Mhz, ram 3800Mhz 15-15-15-36 at 1.46V. It is stable, no errors, 100% HCI memtest passed. Do you have any advice how to lower trfc? Any change from 666 means errors in HCI memtest. Is there some setting which can help? Yeah I know about dram calculator, but it is not helping me. I have played with ProcODT and RTT setting but no luck. I have tried loose timings like 16-20-20, increasing dram voltage, soc voltage, any other voltages according to dram calculator... anyway lowering trfc means errors in HCI memtest. Thanks 🙂

Excuse me but I had a quick look through your post history, and it's mostly "This computers playing up,or That computers playing up".
and now you want to ask a question if there needs to be a cpu installed to flashback???
is there a reason you want to take your entire system apart to update the bios? is there any logic in your problem solving technique?
Put a bios on your flash drive,
rename it C6h.CAP
put it in the usb slot with BIOS written on it and push the button with an arrow and the word BIOS on it.
WAIT!!!!
FOR THE LIGHT TO STOP FLASHING!!
you've never done that?

It'll hang all over the place. Code 41, 66.. then once in while it'll make it to the screen to press del for bios and I'll press it then it'll hang there on code 06. I've had it hang while inside the bios too.. just freezes.. have to reset.

Same **** on cold boot vs warm boot.

At this point I'd recommend just using bios flashback then load optimized defaults after it's done and fully power cycle the system before making any changes to the defaults.
