X470 strix

R5 1600

2 x 8GB 3200mhz corsair

1) So first to install windows (change SSD to GPT?), than amd chipset driver (should I use windows power plan or ryzen?) and than LAN, audio and GPU drivers. What about Asmedia USB 3.1 Driver from Asus site?

2) After that I will OC CPU. Any advice, what option to change in BIOS? What about option Procodt to 60?


3) After that setting memory to 3200 (3000mhz is also good, this is hynix I don`t know will it run on max frequency). Ryzen DRAM calculator? XMP? is there any goal should my latency be lower than 75ns (AIDA64 test)? Current on 2133mhz is 105ns:


4) What program shall I use for stress test and benchmark?
