elguero Wow what an stressful afternoon, I just installed the 3950x, and nothing happened, just the error code 02, or as the manual says "AP initialization before microcode loading", what is that? who knows.

Anyway long story short, I took out one stick of memory and voila it worked.

Now I have the both sticks, memory on ocdp, everything else on auto, and my systems feels like upgrading to a Ferrari from a Toyota Camry.

About PBO, do I just set it to auto?

This might be counter intuitive but the 3950 has the best default boost settings of all the 3000 series. Except in all-core workloads you're likely to barely see a difference in actual performance after overclocking.

I would focus on getting your RAM overclocked so you can benefit from the faster infinity fabric speeds.

PBO is under the main overclocking page - and also under AMD OVERCLOCKING on the 2nd (third???) page

For 3700x is Ryzen Master better for overclock? I was used to overclocking in the bios
Also I havent really noticed any real difference between 3200cl14 and 3600cl16 on my [email protected] , it's a different story on 3700x?
Is all core 4.3 the ideal OC ?

So many questions
It's just really forgiving, when I first started testing I had some settings that even at 3466 I would get 20 errors in about one minute of testing in TM5 but the system wasn't crashing or buggy.
I think 1700 wouldn't have even booted with those settings for me.
I don't really have much experience with Ryzen master, I've dabbled but it always seems to get to a point where because it auto loads on boot that something with it would cause a system crash until I uninstalled it.
Tend to not give many chances when that's the solution to a problem with piece of software.
as for 4.3 all core, it's probably the go if all you do is multithread work, without all core OC the higher single core boost is certainly worth more to me for games and general use.

if it's better than stock you'll obviously have a better experience.

Your RAMs good, should be able to get stable at 3600 fast settings from the DRAM calculator, I do recommend getting
TestMem 5 v0.12 and the config file from https://www.overclock.net/forum/27577522-post2594.html
and following this guide https://www.techpowerup.com/review/a...locking-guide/

I'd be interested in some actual useful information too, I have 3900x and so far PBO limit adjustments have been most useful in bumping the performance up.
People have all sorts of theories on how best to do that. I've spent hours starting really high and then nudging them down, running bench marks and looking comparing results until reaching a point of diminishing returns, what might work for me might not be optimal for you but that method works accompanied by a good negative voltage offset, but just enough to keep temps down a little because too far and the VID voltages spike to compensate.
Those can also be controlled in BIOS but it's clear as duck **** to me with hex values and formulas and understanding when that value is used, I'd need the encouragement of knowing for sure it's an effective way to improve performance to actually sit there wrap my head around that.

I have 3200 cl14 4x8GB and I was able to get 3800mhz CL16,tRCD17,tRP16 tRas32 tRc48 1T on the RAM with 1900 on the fabric with no errors, It's the most stable ram overclock I've ever had.
I use liquid metal and corsair 360mm AIO

In DRAM calculator it says to enable it, so I'd say yes.

Not sure if the uploaded file is what you want?


Ah, so do not touch tRFC - I have not noticed that you do not have b-dies. My bad, sorry. And you need to keep GDM enabled for these modules as well.
