moved up from 2x8gb gskill (F4-3600C16D-16GVK) by adding a further pair, which are considerably newer, but same specs

apart from needing more volts (up from a meagre 1.34 to 1.38 in the bios), they run endless stress testing using tm5, and once booted are stable as a rock. but...

every so often on a cold boot, they fail initial boot and the auto second cycle kicks in fine and into windows; rarely they default to "overclock fail", and a simple reboot from the bios screen and they are good to go at declared speed and timings

very rarely, they refuse to boot multiple times, and after a little rest, or compete power down, they are back and raging

i would add that they invariably hate being instructed to restart using windows power option, and i don't think they have ever rebooted without a shutdown from that state

other gear is all well tested and fine :
ryzen 5 3600 @ 4.625 / noctua nh-d15 / msi b450m mortar max / samsung 970 evo plus 500gb nvme / wd 2tb / 4x8gb G.Skill ripjawsV @ 3600 c16 (b-die) /
galax 2060 super / dell u2515h / Lian Li PC-A17B & corsair hx750i & noctua fans

i am not after tweaking the subtimings at this stage, except to invoke the gods of stability at 16-16-16-36 1t at least vdimm it will happily accept

the ram idles at ~ 40c; the sticks are a bit cuddly on the mortar max but 4 slots lined up doesn't make for spacious insertion, and although i may well add another fan over them eventually, i am disinterested in rejigging the case, which is pretty tidy

happy for some simple adjustments to make it less pernickety for cold boot (and reboot if that is an additional possibility)
