Thanks I was really worried about all the errors but none have shown there face, I was on the latest chipset, its was just a weird error. Somehow all of my drives were reporting there correct letters but when I went to cmd prompt in recovery tools my drives were all assigned different letter even tho in the mbr it was the correct one. I actually just used the 3600 safe settings from calculator and have them up and running successfully with memtest reporting no errors in 2 hrs so far!! Im finally happy to be getting what I paid for with the tridentZ memory. Now off to try some games.

I installed my 3700x last night (replacing 1700 @3.7 1.35v) and so far bios has been OK, I had extreme lag on first clear of the cmos but after just restarting (after loading into bios) its quick and fine. I managed to get to 3200mhz on my ram as per my previous setup (****ty hynix 3200 cas 16 ram) without any fuss, the only issue I am seeing is very high temps and bus struggling to stay to 100Mhz it keeps fluctuating between 99.98 and 100.01, if I set straight up XMP it drops to 99.80MHZ, only at stock with no ram changes can I achieve solid 100mhz bus anyone else experienced it?

For the temperature side my 1700 would full load max at 55C on my watercooled setup (EK block 2x240 radiators), with the 3700x im hitting 70c! Currently assuming I have done a poor mount this time round so hoping to see if anyone else had similar issues, rather not drain system again just to reapply paste if its known to be this hot now!

The base clock is supposed to fluctuate, it's intentional to reduce switching noise (it's called spread spectrum).

AMD is more aggressive with it than Intel, that's for sure, but Intel does the same thing.

70C is quite good with the 3700X. It's easy to make it hit 80C+ no matter the cooling solution (short of subambient).

PolRoger ***Having trouble with C5 errors??***

Try setting a 3000C16 memory speed setting... It might help(?) with the issue until a new BIOS fixes the bug.

I'm running on a CH6E with a 3900X and a GSkill FlareX 3200C14 kit and I didn't experience the bug until yesterday when I tried to boot at DDR4-3800 memory speed which caused a C5 error.

My combo will run 4.2GHz all core at 3200C14/3600C16/3733C16 1:1 with BIOS presets saved but a cold boots will trip the C5 error while hot boots don't. I normally run my rig 24/7 with performance power plan so I hadn't done any cold boots over the last several days/week.

I also have two auto overclock BIOS presets... PBO3200C14 and PBO3000C14 both of which will trip a C5 error on a cold boot while hot boots work.

For my combo I saved two additional overclock presets... A 4.2GHz all core 3000C16 and a PBO3000C16 which do not seem to trip a C5 error upon cold booting!

Any time I get a C5 error I push the clear CMOS button with the power on and boot to BIOS defaults and then load one of the 3000C16 presets after which I can then hot boot to my other faster memory speed presets.

If I'm going to shut down my pc... I hot boot back to one of the 3000C16 presets so that I don't get another C5 error when I re-start my computer.

Hopefully this might work/help with some of the other Crosshair VI versions and Ryzen 3000 combos out there?

So far with my combo when attempting to run at DDR4-3800 even with 2:1 ratio it will still trip a C5 error.

I'm looking forward to new BIOS updates!!

dlbsyst Oops, I made an error in one of my settings. I have my SOC voltage set to 1.025 which is causing my CLDO_VDDG to run on too low of a voltage. It is set to auto. AMD recommends the SOC be set to 1.100 volts. I'm definitely correcting that when I get home.

Ryoz i compared the checksum of 7201 bios downloaded from asus and the file post at here few days ago, they are the same file.

so there are no other change except it fix the mouse issue.

I don't know much about BIOS but what is what with this? lol

YMMV, but from my experience the memory controller on gen3 is very forgiving - I mean, just try DOCP / XMP first and tune from there.

There is a further setting to worry about though, CLDO_VDDG (I think that's what it is called, its the setting just under vSoC?), which shares a relationship with vSoC, and helps establish high fclk speeds.

You also need to have VDDG under vSoC (this is specified in the help string in bios as well) - I've seen recommendations of between 100mv-40mv gap between the two.

The "auto" default I think is ~950mv (0.950) You probably wont need to worry about it running memory/fclk @ 3600/1800 or less.

Have fun!
Do you mind if I ask what you have your CLDO_VDDG set to voxson?

Pc booted just fine. BUTTTTTT I had a huge issue with windows booting, was green screening getting inaccessible boot device error every time. Spent all day fighting it and finally decided to pull all of my non windows drives out and my usb drive. Was able to boot into safe mode, run dism and sfc /scannow and it found errors and fixed them now all of my drives are back installed and working perfectly.

Now onto memory I was using dram calculator with my 1800x with great results. My understanding is its not yet updated for my 3600? So what should I do for my 3600cl16 trident z, I see there is no longer stilt settings in bios and frankly there is a ton more bios settings I am not familiar with. Can someone help a novice get started on getting my memory up to speed.
