When I use the EDC bug my CB15 runs are at around a 42 multiplier and runs a little hotter than if I set a higher fixed multiplier. The voltages are similar, but I never checked amperage. I wanna say it's the startup voltages -- those quick, higher bursts at the beginning of a load. What is the ambient temp in the room?Got my system up and running with water cooling finally. Updated BIOS from 1201 to 1407, loaded my profile 1 (just stock and XMP timings) and it just black screened multiple times. Thankfully I added a little power switch to the CMOS jumper that hangs out the back of the desk so no opening the desk just to reset CMOS. Loaded DOCP and Ignored all fan sensors, working fine now.
No idea if temps are in line with other custom water systems, I'm really new to Ryzen and it seems to be a whole other beast from FX or Haswell. 69-70C in Cinebench R20 and 70-74C in CPU-z stress on stock settings. Added some thermal probes to the backside of the VRM and a RAM module which hover in the 28-30C range.

And I'm digging that jumper hack.
Those temps seem decent with an 80*F ambient room temp.Ambient was probably around 80F. We had a cold front come through so now it's more like 75F. Water temp was around 30-31C in those tests. Chipset is on water too and hangs around 40C. I left the stock thermal pad on it which kind of got torn up during install but I was too lazy to remount the block and use thermal paste. I can live with 40C on chipset.
Power switch on CMOS jumper is nice indeed. It's a major PITA to open the desk to do maintenance, any maintenance.
You'll want to start your research with Typhoon Burner and Dram calculator if you are trying to optimize your memory. Typically this is 3600 @ 1800 Fclk & 3800 @ 1900 Fclk.Hi all,
For the gurus out here with a 3700X I have a question. I just pulled the trigger on the TUF, a 3700X and a 16GB DDR4 4133Mhz CL18(Team T-Force Xtreem). Now I am new to AMD and want to get the best bang for buck performance of these components for my new build, and I have no idea if I should just set XMP and forget it or try to lower the frequency and tighten the timmings on the ram to get the lowest latency. I don't know too much about FCLK I keep hearing about and now I'm worried that I ordered too fast a kit for the 3700X.
Your input is much appreciated. Cheers
Which bios is running best for most people right now? So when I get my TUF I don't update to the latest one. I'll be putting in a 3700XCan any one give some feedback on the latest 1407 bios? How is it running for you? Any issues? Have your disabled spread spectrum without any problems?
I switched to 1407 after a few days. No issues that are causing problems, so far. I do love the fact that we can now kill spread spectrum (disabled without issue) and have an adjustable BCLK. Now if I can just take some time to work on memory timings to get just a bit lower latency!Can any one give some feedback on the latest 1407 bios? How is it running for you? Any issues? Have your disabled spread spectrum without any problems?
I have same setup 2 x m2 and 3 ssd, 2 hd with G.skill 3600 32gb and no problem except one annoying rgb problem. When my windows sleep the ram led is still on.I already changed bios to C4 and kept aura off but this led is still on.I updated to BIOS 1407 and the instability is back. I get no video signal after 3 hours or so.
Maybe it is my 3600Mhz memory or maxxed out 6x SATA and 2x M.2 Drives?
I have dropped back to 2133Mhz/memory and the system is stable. Looks like my 3600Mhz memory is not liking 1407 BIOS. Time to mem test
