memory controller error on ryzen 1800x

Ryzen 1800x processor

noctua NH-U12S SE-AM4

Gigabyte x370 Gaming 5

32 Gig Corsair Vengeance 3200

Radeon RX480

intel u.2 ssd

Coolermaster HAF X case

System has ever been overclocked and was working fine for a couple of months. Started getting errors on boot that the TPM was not working but didnt think much of it. About a week later I received a new windows 10 build.. On one of the reboots a received a message that the system could not boot because the drives were not available. went in to the bios and everything appeared to be correct and detected and restarted but my intallation was corrupted so i reformated and reinstalled windows 10. Had it up and working and the next day redownloaded the update (thinking the update download was bad the first time) unfortunately when the computer restarted I now get, no video, no lights on keyboard or mouse to signifiy they are on and constant errors that say memory controller initialization error. Ive since bought a second motherboard and another set of ram from another manufacturer, both sets are samsung chips, and I get the same issue.

The only thing this leaves in common is the cpu. Is this something that CAN happen, or am i barking up the wrong tree?

On the gigabyte website it shows there is a post code reader on the board. Can you report the post code to gigabyte? It is at the bottom of this picture

Re: memory controller error on ryzen 1800x

curiously i find 32gb @ 3200mhz. i see you have corsairs now, they can be a pain sometimes 32gb especially. what did you have prior. either way .. it would be very very important to set  SOC voltage for controller rather upwards to top to handle the ram voltage. so if you didnt set SOC voltage to 1.1875 as 1.2 is max and then add atleast .05v on ram .. so if ram is 1.35 i honestly would start at 1.45 and work down. maybe loosen timing a bit til problem figured out. thats alot of ram and 3200mhz also. keep in mind most mobo's have a settind also for ram for boot time that will need set same as other 1.45 so it can pass initializing ..
