I play WoT, BDO, GW2, STO, Rift, Starcraft, HotS, Conan Exiles plus a few more games with a 1700X and performance is perfectly fine. CPU multiplier is set to auto and memory is at 3200.
What is your memory speed?
Ill take my main system as example
Windows 10 Home 64 bit
AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Eight-core processor @ 3592.7 MHz running on all cores
16 GB DDR4 3200 MHz Corsair Vengeance LPX K2
M2 SSD 500GB 960 EVO PCIe (Windows and my main games i.e. FFXIV and Overwatch)
3 more SSD's all 550/550 speed (Samsung I beleve)
Gigabyte GA-AB350 Gaming 3 B350 motherboard
MSI GTX 980 TI Lightning GPU
When I check my memory speed it says that it is currently running at this:
NB Frequency 1064.5 MHz
DRAM Frequency 1064.5 MHz
CAS Latency 15.0 clocks
RAS to CAS Delay 15 c locks
RAS 15 clocks
Cycle time tRas 36 clocks
Bank cycle 51 c locks
The memory modules them self are 3200 MHz though
Hope this info is sufficient
Have you tried getting your memory to run faster? SOC voltage to 1.1v and DRAM voltage to 1.4v with timings 16-18-18-18-38. Goto 2400 first then 2666 then 2933 then try 3200.
Will give that a try tomorrow, thanks a lot for your answer! But you sure about the 1.4 volt?
Bull though that you buy new stuff, 3200 MHz compatible, but yet you still have to change stuff to make it work while it should automaticly work if you ask me.
BTW XMP is not working properly, my PC reboots multiple times after it, then im back to 1067MHz.... is there any other way without breaking my RAM if I do it wrong?
AMD Ryzen Master for example? and what should I change I mean... it shows so many things that you can change... no clue what is what haha.
Most are on 15 bus speed, one is on 36 bus speed (names are in Dutch and I dont know the English names lol).
1.4v on 3200 rated memory if quite safe, 1.1 SOC is quite safe, you may need to beef up your core voltage slightly also. You can loosen your timings even further to try and trigger the overclock 20-20-20-20-42. Remember XMP is Intel, D.O.C.P. is for Ryzen, thought they are basically the same thing.
Ryzen AGESA and BIOS are still maturing and currently have issues with memory, though it is getting better. There are releases coming down the pipe that should help with memory. Sometimes you have to wrestle with your system to get it to behave the way you want it to. When the overclock fails, be it memory overclock or cpu overclock the system will always go back to default 2133 for memory and auto for cpu. Don't forget anything over 2133 is a memory overclock. Pry it with some voltage, I am sure you can get more then 2133. When a new bios comes out revisit your voltages, speed and timings.
I have this board (gaming 3, ryzen 5 1500x), and can get 2933 from my Geil grb at timings of 16-18-18-18-36. As our board works on offsets, my VCORE SOC is offset by +0.1, and my cpu voltage is offset by -0.09 and I'm on BIOS F6. Which Bios revision are you currently on?
F6 as well I tried Ryzen Master but cant change voltage there... will try BIOS tomorrow and let you all know the outcome
Will post my settings this weekend. Stuff has improved a little bit but still not near expectations haha but oh well... maybe software / BIOS and other stuff still needs more updates or something for Ryzen to fully work. I will edit this post this weekend with some of my settings et cetera.
P.S. I canont bump up the voltage in my BIOS, the option is grayed-out
voltage on the gaming 3 works on offsets, and you change it by using the -/+ buttons on your keyboard while that row is highlighted. remember to hold shift to get the + working.
