I tried setting SOC between 1 and 1.125 with no difference at all so it seemed like that didn't affect the stability issue. Only way for me to "fix" it was to either increase DRAM Voltage to 1.42 or increase timings/lower the multiplier (3533mhz for example).

I also tried LLC at high/turbo/extreme with no difference in behaviour because at first I thought it was maybe caused by droop.

Here's my current settings that runs the kit completly stable, only thing I've touched is setting dram voltage to 1.42. It runs a pretty high tRFC but I havent bothered with manual timings yet.

Edit: Decided to set the timings manually with help from the DRAM calculator, 3600 Safe settings + the Neo kit xmp timings. Stable so far. Still +.2 mV.

So both AMD CBS and Overclocking settings set to 1867mhz Infinity Fabric clocks and the divider Mem ULCK==FLCK 1, Rysen master shows "coupled" in these setting I was actually using the x570 chipset Safe recommendations for memory( Trust me I've tried them all) RttPArk shows RZQ/1 when I had set it to 5 in the bios.

Look at the memory read/write/copy and latency and the snippet of HWINFO showing, yep thats right the memory clock was actually ramping up and down now to how true that is im not sure but I watched it for several minutes.

Anyhow thought I'd share this because it seem crazy, but I shall keep trying to push over the 1800 IF, maybe ill drop out 16GB ram and see if that helps, either that or I have a bogus chip.
Try disabling the power saving feature for RAM.

I returned one kit and bought another - same with both kits. At 1.4v that the xmp sets - it is not stable. The kit runs stable at 1.42v however so it's not a dealbreaker.

tsamolotoff Here's modded f42b:

- Enabled chipset spread spectrum control (not sure if it does anything, as bclk OC worked without disabling this)
- Enabled bgs alt/interleaving/other settings AMD decided to keep away from us

Yeah i agree too to that.

While doing that, i might have accidentally pressed "Del" key or typed in 0 in CLDO_VDDP field. As a result, all monitoring tools (RM, aida64, hwinfo) showed that it was running at 1.79V. I was told it should have fried the IO die, but it still runs (hopefully so). I understand it's mostly my fault, but can Gigabyte implement some kind of safeguard (for example, if it's set to 0, make it equal to auto or some low default voltage?) so that it won't happen by accident. Also, I'm sure all of us would appreciate if the profiles were cross-version compatible - it's a pain to re-do everything each time I update the bios (and I have three different kits of ram that I periodically test)

Yup this is definitely some of the things that will improve the user experience if added.
