I've recently got an HTC Vive Cosmos to ease the shut-down boredom - which is running really well on my machine... Also been doing lots of video editing in Davinci Resolve 16 which works like a dream!
Aww, that's a bummer on the 1900 FCLK. Mine won't POST at anything higher than 1900 FCLK unless it's just a slight BCLK overclock. And Shamino didn't come back to answer if there is anything else new in the BIOS and I didn't notice anything other than its peculiar behavior that I mentioned before.

Oooh a Vive. I don't have binocular vision so I don't think I'd ever buy one, but I do wish I knew someone that had one so I could see if the experience is diminished for someone that only uses one eye.

I've been looking for an excuse to play with Davinci. What videos do you edit? Work or pleasure?

First bug or odd behavior I've found is with RAM timings left on Auto. It's only two in particular as they are the only ones I leave set to Auto. I leave them on Auto because each channel is usually set separate of the other and are usually something like 8/2 on one channel and 9/1 on the other channel.

I will try your 3800/1900 MHz settings (your Pic ZenTimmings 1.04 - pages back). Need some some inspirations in you complete Asus UEFI settings.

I know the Settings RTT Settings etc. for 4 DIMMs are different to your 2 DIMMs, but the rest should work for me too (Main Settings for CPU and Board etc.).

Not many people use the GSkill 3600C15 today and there are some "special" Settings for the F4-3600C15-8GTZ etc.

Maybe you see some false settings in my pic and give advise to get this faster/stable.

Thanks


My current settings - yours bellow :
Well I leave the resistances on Auto so I can't shed any light there, but one thing I always do is leave tRDWR and tWRRD on Auto as the board sets those differently per channel. You won't see that while in Windows, but if you look at them in BIOS you'll see them set to something like 10/1 on one channel and 9/1 on the other channel when set to Auto.

Edit:

Something else I've been doing lately is setting all primaries higher so that I can go lower on tRFC. At 14-15-14-14-30-44 I couldn't go lower than 310 on tFRC, however, with 16-16-16-16-34-50 I have been able to run 250 on tRFC and that seems to do better. I haven't tested overnight yet but it seems promising.

My machine runs 3800/1900MHz, but with coldstart problems and it is sometime instable.

Thank you

I finally got an overnight stable result last night with these timings. The one thing I changed last night that I hadn't before was tWTRS from 3 to 4.

The voltages aren't quite tuned.

DRAM at 1.5V
SOC 1.106V (LLC at 4)
VDDG 1.05V

I also have Karhu set to test CPU cache under the Advanced tab.

I think it's in AMD CBS -- a setting to force the FCLK UCLK to stay at max. Perhaps what you're seeing is when they downclock briefly and that de-sync being the source of your stutters. Do you set FCLK in BIOS or leave it to Auto?
