    Overclocking Ryzen and Asrock Killer SLi

    hargreve.inc@inbox.ru

      Good day. There is Asrock X370 Killer Sli, AMD Ryzen 1600x, 16 gb Corsair Vengeancr LPX Dual Rank, DeepCool Gammax S40. CPU and memory can not be overclocked. BIOS version 4.50. Expose the memory of 2800 with XMP 2.0, CPU 3800. Save, reboot. Overclock saved. Start Windows, open task explorer, no overclocking :/ Bad BIOS? Can I roll it back through Instant flash on 3.10 version?

          Have you tried contacting ASRock to get a older BIOS?

            Hello,

             

            Usually to validate the OC clocks you would use, instead the task manager, tools as CPU-Z, HWiFO, your motherboard software and also the AMD software called AMD Ryzen Master.
            The task manager is not always accurate when it come to give precise clocks.
            Please can you try one of these tools and check if the OC is really not applied.

                Hello,

                Of course I use all the programs listed. If you overclock through the ryzen master then you have to reinstall Windows. The computer just restarts indefinitely. clrcmos does not help. The last 3 bios such cases. I heard from the asrock this is quite normal.

                    Hello,

                     

                    Understood, so there is different issues here, one related with Ryzen master that do not work, the other one is related to the bios oc that do not apply.
                    Be also aware that the some Microsoft/Intel patch brought issues on ryzen setups, to fix the security flaws our cpu's, in general have at the moment.

                    These issues were fixed with the latest Microsoft patch, so be sure also to have installed the latest updates, the bug caused the rig to fail to boot completely.

                     

                    To be honest i do not know much about Ryzen master not working properly, but it is the 1st time i hear that an oc is not applied through bios.
                    I mean by this, if the bios oc settings are saved, reboot and come back to the bios, if the oc is still saved, there is no reason it would not apply under windows.

                     

                    You need to check if the oc is saved after a reboot, if not usually it's because the motherboard can't boot with the setting you saved and revert to stock.

                    Because these settings were not stable enough, this is true especially for ram settings more than basic cpu settings, since the ram clocks are more sensible to validate.

                     

                    If the motherboard find that the settings are stable enough to boot into the bios, usually the rig will boot with these settings.
                    Then if still they are not stable, windows loading will crash and not reach the desktop or crash as soon you reach the desktop or ran some stability test.
