how to achieve 3200 mhz with ryzen 5 1600x

hi everyone

i have a asrock x370 mobo with ryzen 5 1600x paired with Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz C15, in the bios i cant get more than 2667 mhz .
the timing are 15-17-17-17-35

even trying the widely 16-18-18-181-36 doesnt work .something else i can do . ?

the mobo has the latest bios

Re: how to achieve 3200 mhz with ryzen 5 1600x

While I do not have your exact hardware, I'm running a 1700X on a Asus Prime X370-PRO the principles should be the same.

You may not achieve a 3200 overclock with your memory with current bios due to the fact your memory is only rated at 3000. However you can try some things to trigger running the sticks at 2933 and it may also trigger 3200 but you may find stability issues. New AGESA code coming may also help you.

Try the following

Set your CPU clock to auto, is is best to overclock memory with CPU at auto until you achieve your desired memory overclock. Once you have a stable memory overclock then overclock your CPU.

1 - Start by clearing your CMOS

2 - Post into bios

3 - Set Vcore to manual 1.350v (you can also raise this to 1.375 to help trigger your memory overclock)

4 - Set DRAM to 1.400v

5 - Set SOC to manual 1.100v (you can up this to 1.200v if 1.100v does not give results)

6 - if your board only deals with offsets then calculate the appropriate offset

7 - for timings try using the rams stated timings but add 2 to each number and manually enter those timings

8 - set memory speed to 2400 and post into that speed a couple times

9- set memory speed to 2666 and post into it a few times

10 - set memory to 2933 and try posting into it, perhaps then 3200

There are other voltages like VTT and VPP that can help with memory. Once you have achieved the memory overclock you want, check stability. Once you feel your memory overclock is stable, overclock your cpu to desired level (this may require Vcore voltage increase and SOC for that matter). Once you feel everything is stable with your desired overclock, then try tightening your memory timings while checking for stability. Then work on reducing voltages in baby step if you can, checking stability along the way. I find Corona bench mark a quick stability test, if this bench mark finishes you are close to stable.

Typically a black screen means not enough Vcore, programs freezing but no system crash can point to memory stability issues or possibly a single core that wants more Vcore (not all cores are created equal). Ryzen is like that hot girl you had a crush on in high school, she had an incredible body and was good in bed but came across has a little bit weird in a lovable kind of way. Good luck.

Re: how to achieve 3200 mhz with ryzen 5 1600x

Hi. I have Asus CH6 (and will buy R7 1700 or R71700X.) If i refresh my Bios to a latest...

Can I use Gskill TridentZ 2X16Gb (Samsung B, dual rank kit) 3200Mhz CL14,14,14,34 at full speed ?  (F4-3200C14D-32GTZ)

Or is better 4X8Gb (2pack from 2X8Gb Samsung B single rank kit) Gskill TridentZ 3200Mhz? (2X F4-3200C14D-16GTZ)

Thanks.

Wait for the new memory code update coming to the new BIOS releases, AMD released the code to the manufacturers a few days ago so updates should be soon. Corsair memory is Hyinx based, and current memory code only allows them to operate at full speed with Samsung B memory.

Re: how to achieve 3200 mhz with ryzen 5 1600x

Which ASRock X370 board do you have?

I'm running

Ryzen R7 1700x

ASRock Fatality X370 Professional Gaming Bios v2.00 currently

G.Skill Flare X 16GB (2x8) DDR4 3200 c14

All I had to do with my system was set the XMP with auto settings and it booted right up at 3200mhz memory speed with no other tweaking.

Based on the timings you listed, for the time being, it's not likely that you'll get your memory over 2667.  In fact you're lucky it booted at that speed.  Since that memory is Hynix based.  The memory I was using before I got my Flare X kit was the G.Skill F4-3200C16D-GTZB kit. which is also hynix based, wouldn't boot above 2400mhz regardless of timing settings.

Like black_zion said, wait for the new agesa 1.0.0.5 code bios updates to come out, they may improve ram compatibility.

Re: how to achieve 3200 mhz with ryzen 5 1600x

Either kit should work, BUT, I don't think you'll be able to boot above 2667 using the 4x8 kit.  I'd have to look at the specs again, but I think thats what I've read about the memory controller with all 4 ram slots filled, check the ram info in your motherboards manual to be sure. 

The 2x8 kit should likely have a good chance to work at 3200mhz, it's hard to say though, since 16GB Dimms are generally dual rank.

I have read in a Swiss online shop. The first kit is Dual ranking (Samsung B die), the second is a Single ranking (Samsung B die). But someone has the first and sayed its working after the first AGESA UPDATE. But i will 100% know before buy.

hi

i have the x370 killer sli/ac

you know i didnt try that .

question , do you used th asrock utility software , there is a button that says hardware monitor , i click on , but nothing happens
