Wait, i missed what cpu cooler you are using. Temp is outstanding even without an undervolt. Must be a combo of spreading the paste, cooler, bios version/settings, chip driver, and silicon.Same here. Initially preset was The Stilt 3466MHz timings, then other timings dropped lower.
Will be trying 3600MHz C14 on Zen 2 and moar once I finish other testing.
Arctic Silver 5, spread by strip of plastic card. I once tried Hydronaut, was so awful to spread, after that experienced I couldn't be bothered to try any other.
Same HW except CPU, room is ~24C R5 3600 screenie, ~22C R7 2700X, PBO+100MHz vs PE: Default PBO: Enabled, pretty much same RAM timings.
Best I had 3666MHz on 2700X was ~4000% in RT, got several ~3000% passes.
Dam, 1600 to 1800. My Flares should do as well. I have not crossed upon proof that 3200 to 3600 will make a significant lift in performance on the Ryzen 3000.
If there is no significant effect of going 3600MHz on the ram, then there is no reason to oc or there is no reason to buy expensive ram kits. Most reviewers are using 3200 CL16.
