Nitethorn So I've decided to just leave the CPU at default and OC the ram as it's the only thing I can OC and stay stable. I'm about at the point that I honestly do think this motherboard may be my hindering factor. I do appreciate everyone's help though. I'll get a tiachi or crosshair towards the end of the year and I might swing by and let you guys know how it goes. See ya.

Nitethorn So I decided to play around with it as I had some free time today. I bumped vcore to max offset +0.3, I didn't mess with the p-states just yet cause it appears to me the voltage is already pretty high. I bumped SoC voltage by +0.15 and VDDP voltage by +0.1. Then I set it to 4.2ghz. Left memory at xmp profile. Restarted. Ran Prime95 for 10 minutes, which is a record. Got excited so I stopped prime, watched temps fall back to normal and then opened the browser to come here and say I might be on to something... then the PC just froze. Solid. No bluescreen, nothing. Just frozen. Had to turn it off with the power button. So I set bios back to default, loaded windows and opened bluescreenview. Only problem is it didn't create a dump file. And it's set to auto memory minidump. So I dunno…. we'll see if the PSU makes any difference. In the mean-time I'll keep looking online for someone with this exact motherboard who might have had better luck. I refuse to give up! lol I still think it's possibly a setting somewhere that I'm not getting right.

Nitethorn Thanks guys, I truly appreciate all of the info. My new PSU will be here Friday, I'll put that in and install bluescreenviewer and I'll try again over the weekend and update here with my results. I'll also look into those pstate settings. So more to come in a few days. Again, thanks everyone for all the input!

I just want to see specifically what the issue is, help find the real limit with him.

I am definitely more frustrated with what broadpwns posted about losing the silicon lottery, because we don't have enough info from just a hwmon screenshot. Theres so much more tweaking to explore than the current settings depict.

And you are right, there's always more potential somewhere. I like that outlook.

Now like on this little ITX board, I have no vdroop correction, no memory voltages over 1.5 no vcore over 1.55. Its got its limits, but I can still manage a bench stable 4.35GHz on this ryzen 2700.

Set to 1.55v I get 1.42v under load so I can get through those cpu tests in firestrike. Call me crazy, I like it.

I get that, but like in my case... I got 3333mhz ram, when I got to the 4.1 4.2GHz area I started having my first IMC stability issues. This is after thinking I needed more vcore after trying different vcore settings for half a day.

Once I saw that my memory dump stop codes were mostly 0x9c, 0xD1 mixed in with a couple rando bsod codes I found that pumping a little into SOC was the cure. I would just rather put some method into helping out the OP then to just throw in a towel on a $300+ purchase.

This way you can max 1.550V and offset +0.300V if you want on your Gigabyte board. Have fun frying it though.

You can pick any voltage you like there for the p-state and use offset on top that set voltage. Try something like 1.350 and use offset for rest untill stable provided you have adequate cooling on your CPU and VRM.
We still need those memory dumps to even know for sure the source of his issues. How can you just look at an unstable OC and automagically assume its the CPU itself?

Y'all confuse me, remind me why I stopped posting here for so long.
