hmm, I've been running these memory settings for almost a year now without this light turning on - it does not turn on and stay on when I power on my PC, but only after idling in windows for too long
I dont have issues with program instability or corruption in games so my memory clocks should be rock solid
LEDs are already on stealth mode

I think this light started turning on after I updated to latest AMD chipset drivers - but cant be sure

according to C6E manual - white Q LED corresponds to VGA ("if an error is found, the corresponding LED remains lit until problem is solved")

DRAM is yellow light, CPU red, BOOT green

and I want to pair that with a Crosshair VI extreme board with a R5 3600 processor. Probably not going to overclock anything, but want the ram to run at 3600 speed. Anyone see any issues with this combination?
thanks
have same kit running 3800C16 no problems 1.42v

Also running two AIOs with a combination of 8 fans with splitters etc. I just don't get how people are having issues with fan headers. I've used official and Beta bioses. PC gets shut off every night, etc.

Just to be clear, I've been on this mobo since 5-5-17 and up till the other day never had any major issues either. None of my fans power leads are connected to the mobo headers, neither is my water pump which also stopped. Only thing connected to mobo fan headers are RPM leads. The fan controller does attach to the CPU fan header for PWM control but has it's own 12v for power. I thought I had the bases covered from these crazy Bios bugs.



In this case the issue is not the fan headers. Mine seemingly lost power to the Sata power cables which is controlled by the mobo.
I"m trying to figure out if it's Bios related which is my first best guess.

Exactly I would like to believe that if the fan controller is bad it would either work as expected or simply quit all together. Fans came right back after rebooting.
Also, even if the controller did have an issue it's hard to believe it would affect the water pump and make it stop as well.

I'll be stepping, no running away from 7201. Turned out to be another POS Offical Bios from Asus/AMD for me at least. Thanks Asus!

I am sooo glad I hesitated from buying a CH8F and 3900x. I won't spend any more cash till Asus/AMD pulls there head out of there arse.
Trust is something you earn and as I'm concerned they have both lost my trust completely.

Are these changes you talk about in your TXT file you posted earlier with your bios settings? I'm running the same memory except with a 3700x but since moving from 6401 to 7601 I've never been able to get the same bandwidth, on 6401 with 2700x I was getting same as you posted but struggling to hit 50000mbs on 7601 using 1Usmus calculator, 0075 was the same.

Cheers

I have these modules running (although 4 x 16 GB) and they work flawlessly. You can just enable the DOCP profile and they run 3600 C16 out of the box.
You do have some wiggle room with the subtimings (was able to get a few more fps out of it), but its a bit of a hassle (not much OC room left).

But great kit for the price imo, got me +15% fps compared to my previous 3000 CL15 kit.

WR-HW95 For some reason I noticed that boost isn´t working anymore on my 2700X with PE3 and PE4.
Tried both amd and windows power plan on min. 5% and max. 100%, but clocks stay static.
On PE2 boost works, but all core clocks drop to 4100 from PE3 4175.
PE4 have been nut´s anyway on these agesa 1003 bioses. On default its running 4325MHz @ 1.46V.

Fixed. It needs to set performance slider to middle. Is that new thing in power settings?

There is a solution in that post: Do NOT load the d.o.c.p. profile. Instead, enter your rams clock speed and voltage manually. Use Auto settings on timings. If it boots, you can adjust the primary timings of your ram manually (to that of the xmp profile), one by one (only change one timing at a time, to narrow down the one that causes problems) and see on which timing you get the error code. Newest bios has had some memory timings tweaked.
