Is there a spread spectrum setting in any version of the BIOS for this board? I read that disabling it can fix the BCLK to 100 MHz instead of the 99.8 MHz I see typically. Just a minor, inconsequential quibble, but still a little eyesore. I also wonder if it helps with stability, not that I have any issues.

Using the search function in BIOS 2203 I see only VRM spread spectrum on Auto, and disabling it had no noticeable effect on BCLK. I've read others mention SB spread spectrum (on C8H) and CPU spread spectrum.

Do you have DOCP enabled? I know i have read about others getting 100 BCLK when they use auto or manual BCLK but when they used DOCP for their memory they get 99.8. It's almost as if ASUS is turning spread spectrum on when DOCP is used.

Don't run DOCP if you want BCLK to stay at 100. Set it to Manual and set your timings manually.

Ah, yes I am using DOCP. Thanks for revealing the secret.

For Ryzen 3xxx overclocking (3700x specifically) do you guys leave voltage on auto? I heard that the way it works with the 3xxx series is that putting it on static voltage just hurts performance.

Ill rather hurt performance than hurt the cpu itself, because the auto shoots way higher voltages sometimes. (regardless of the mb brand)

I've never tried leaving it on Auto as I don't know what the board is gonna try to set.

Ok I gave it a quick try. I'm not sure if the board would have used more voltage for a higher multiplier.

SVI2 1.3V
VID 1.1V

Hey! That took a while!
I've been meaning to ask you about CPU voltage - I've always left mine on auto with Ryzen 3xxx. Also, does offset work with CPU/SoC? Whats best way do you think?

Current experience is that it stays within the limits AMD states -i.e. up to 1.5v VID on light loads.

I don't think I've tried any SOC and related voltages with an offset. I know with SOC less than 1.1V I get USB dropouts at 1900 FCLK.

And you've never had the CPU on Auto? You're doing CCX OC right? High LLC if I remember right....

I'm running EDC bug with Auto CPU voltage and LLC currently.

So the CPU isn't needing LLC? I've been using CPU LLC = 2 as thought (like previous chips) it might need that while OCing RAM - i might try without....

Sorry I left out the 3. I'm running LLC 3 with it.

Doesn't seem to matter what I do on bios 3004+ - just won't do XMP or 3800 at all. Keep getting code 07 which I haven't had in quite some time!

something different but some could be interested nicked of chinese to put on my yt for ez watch

Im grabbing 3080 day 1 as im a 4k monitor user was waiting for gpu thats not on old node. AMD have **** all in high end so NV is still only option especially i want Ray tracing for Cyberpunk and WoW Shadowlands

Pascal titan with block can retire after 4 years. It mined me over 2000 pounds profit so paid for this 3080 :)
