- 1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4/x2 SSD support) (M2A_SOCKET)
- 1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280 PCIe 2.0 x4/x2 SSD support) (M2B_SOCKET)

The ssd is a 2280 design so it fits in both slots. What's the difference? Is it that socket A supports PCI-E 3.0 while socket B only 2.0? Can I expect any tangible difference or should totally install it on slot A for fastest performance?
m2a = gen3 x4 / direct cpu lane ~up to 3500MB/s++
m2b = gen2 x4 / shared lane with pcie x4 (3rd gpu slot) ~up to 1700MB/s++

Yes, the old one from F40 and F41 beta. I'll try stilt mod later to see if there's any improvements (i'm using ccx overclock anyway, it's the same in ST and much higher in MT tests)

srg3037 Below is the link of the modded 42a BIOS that has the new AGESA and SMU added to it. Stilt was nice enough to put it together. You will need to locate a modded Efiflash program. Which is located here - https://www.mediafire.com/file/rr3a0...74_mod.7z/file

https://www.overclock.net/forum/11-a...l#post28127370

I tested it for a few hours. No issues but the WHEA correctable error issue still exists like with the regular 42a BIOS.

Unfortunately, I can't do the ABBA version as its SMU parts are bigger than those in the bios (and it's impossible to use "free space" because I have no idea how it'd influence the PSP and there's not enough in any case). Still, 1002 SMU gives a decent boost to stock (all cores in CCD1 now reach 4600 for me, while on 1003ABB/1003AB it was none). For flashing, you just need a thumb stick with DOS - boot it and use efiflash in the archive to flash it. All profiles will be erased, so beware!

I have set the speed and that's all fine, and it's tied into the IF clock so all is good there and working, however, my timings are not working.

I have set them in the first page : Memory timings page, all to C16/34/1T
Then on the Peripherals page, under AMD OC > Memory and timings and the same there, C16/34/1T

However, in windows, I'm getting C22/52/1T
WHY?

If I use Ryzen Master, then I can set it up perfectly but then I have to OC the CPU to enable that, and using stock cooling for now, this is not ideal.

Any ideas exactly where to set my RAM timings?

Please dont set ram timing inside "AMD OC". it will replace all setting value at 1st TAB menu memory setting. They also used HEX value instead of DECIMAL value..that why your setting value "16" will become c22. sorry bad english. im from wakanda.

What set of ram do you have?

Holler back if you want them....and I can zip them and uploaded them somewhere....I have bios screen shots for each set of timings.

ATM I'm running 3666cl16 with 1.380v.

Wow thats unreal. At that voltage too. My kit is F4-3200C14D-16GTZ. Its a solid kit. Ill take a look at your settings and compare them to my 3600 settings.

I read that TRFC2 is TRFC divided by 1.34, and TRFC4 is TRFC2 divided by 1.625. Is that right?
