Re: Updating my definitive guide to configuring the Ryzen 3900X/3950X and all other 3000 Series CPUs

You have to remember that I was looking at articles about the 7nm node from TSMC before the 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs were released and I remember that piece of info being in a number of articles.

The thing is that so much time has now gone by that when I try to find those articles again they are buried and I just cannot find them again with the search terms.

They are still there, but I really cannot be bothered going through hundreds of pages of search results..

No worries, we already cleared this up in PMs 'member? Post's just been locked in moderation for that long.

Re: Updating my definitive guide to configuring the Ryzen 3900X/3950X and all other 3000 Series CPUs

I've actually just been using the CCX settings built into the 3103 UEFI for my ASUS Crosshair VII WIFI.  No need to set anything in Ryzen master.  Memory timings, and per CCX clock speeds are set in UEFI along with a 1.3 voltage.  Results for my R9 3900X are below.

Re: Updating my definitive guide to configuring the Ryzen 3900X/3950X and all other 3000 Series CPUs

Thanks for the guide nec_v20.
I have one question about 3900x series.

Should i turn off Simultaneous Multithreading or should i only do that for 3950x? 
Im mostly using my rig for gaming.

Re: Updating my definitive guide to configuring the Ryzen 3900X/3950X and all other 3000 Series CPUs

While i like when ppl take the time to type a guide, it should be labeled correctly, as well as state a few things more detailed.

its NOT the definite guide (not with one board/cpu/ram tested), uses settings specific to your board/cpu, nor does it tell ppl to test (ram) for stability, before doing cpu tweaks.

LLC (and other power related settings) arent the same for every cpu/board. what was proper for my one (high) was not enough for another (which needed turbo to stay below 2% droop).

with so many variables on ram (2 vs 4 sticks, SR or DR, mhz/timings etc) that ppl can have, it most likely wont be stable if ppl just "flip the switch" to do 3600@xmp voltage.

especially claiming that "quality" ram can do 1T (above 2133) is not true.

on 5 different boards from 3 brands with multiple kits from gskill/corsair/patriot incl decent micron e and samsung b die,

NOT one kit was stable with 3600@1.35 and using 1T, on the samsung even using +1.4v did not help.

the asus board wasnt even able to do more than 2933 (no matter if 2 or 4 sticks) testing all kits i had.

so "blindly" recommending specific settings, WITHOUT telling ppl to run something like TM5 (memory test),

is one of the worst things to do (in a guide).

example: you say "..it should run at 1T.. if not change back to 2t.."

so how do ppl know? no info what they should do, not even mentioning that being able to run 1T, does NOT mean its stable,

especially if popl use something like memtest86, which doesnt catch 1T or oc errors.

3 rigs that were set to 3600@1.35/1T finished 4 passes, while TM5 would run errors within 5-10 min.

Re: Updating my definitive guide to configuring the Ryzen 3900X/3950X and all other 3000 Series CPUs

Hi - I recently reinstalled Ryzen Master now that they have gotten past the Win10 Hypervisor/Sandboxing limitation.

I noticed that there is an Advanced setting in Ryzen Master for Persistent PCD Values that I don't remember seeing in the past.

Does this setting allow @nec_v20's recommended modifications survive a PC reboot without needing to re-run Ryzen Master?
