antr1x Hi all! Tell me please how to properly overclock the memory to 2933 frequency? What timings to set and so on? I am using two G.Skill F4-3600C17D-32GTZR kits.

specs (if needed)
cpu: threadripper 2990wx
mb: ze ofc (bios ver 2001)
psu: rog thor 1200

im using LLC L1 .. i feel this version has a different programmable core, i managed to hit 3.6Ghz stable with 3000Mhz vs 2666 with previous version, temps are slightly higher than usual tho by 5c, using corsair H100i ... however rendering with Maya /Arnold renderer was very stable with max temp 65c .. prime95 also stable

AIDA stability test freezing after 5 seconds, i figured it might be aida64 ver 6 architecture might not be compatible with the board and TR updates however i need to do my research on that one, its unusual that one stress test from one software fails .. while real world ( Maya 3D 4K rendering ) eats all RAM and CPU cores like a monster yet still stable

Anyone else experienced the same thing? Also the READ speed dropped by 15 GB/sec or something .. from 92 to 78 GB/sec. The write speed stayed the same.

P.S. I'm using 2 x32 GB kits form G.Skill Ripjaws 3200 Mhz , CL14 which are Samsung B-Die dual sided. The timing is set manually to 14 - 14 - 14 -14 - 34 - 44 and 1T command rate (no gear down or power down). Basically I copied all the settings from the previous BIOS and applied to the new one increasing only the frequency to 3200 Mhz from 3066 Mhz.

Thanks

i upgraded my bios to 2001, the new bios dosnt seem to like my settings from pervious profile after i re entered everything manually

frequency and vcore dropping in windows, instability issues, thermal issues, anyone experiencing something smiliar ?

Lots of variables and we're probably running different ram but it might be worth double checking to see if that's the problem.
emmjawsX thanks, I have being playing a little (no much free time these days) and after a failed attempt to increase my negative offset on the vcore I have to do a clear cmos and I havent have any issue for more than 2 weeks this include idle, low load and "full load" aka gaming or heavy multitasking. My ram voltages as reported by HWinfo under the Asus WMI section DRAM AB Voltage 1.352 with some shorts spikes to 1.373 as you report sames goes for the DRAM CD Voltages, the DRAM AB and CD (VRM) voltages are 1.350 and with some spikes to 1.360

I havent manage to make the oled screen work again (stuck on "small text")...

EDIT: Im on Bios Version 2001

Overall is less stable than the previous version.

I think i will roll back to the previous one because this one is ****.
that is going to be even worse if it turns out x399 is going to be abandon entirely by AMD

No one knows for sure yet, but there is a high probability that it will work, because TR is based on EPYC ROME core, and that one has the exact socket. You will not have PCI-E 4.0 though...
