    Ryzen 2700x and Asus X470-F micro freezing issue


      Hi Everyone,



      i have a question about stability or maybe i am expecting too much.

      My system is as follows:



      Ryzen 2700x

      Asus X470-F latest bios updated

      16GB DDR4 Ram **** this is a 4x4 setup 3000mhz gskill Samsung E-Die**** (not QVL but i used ryzen DRAM calc and have it set to a speed of 2933mhz)

      MSI ARMOR RX580 8GB

      750W Thermaltake Gold Plus Grand PSU



      I am having issues where when i am gaming and some times randomly when loading a few things at once i would get a micro system freeze or hang for a couple seconds or so and sometimes i need to hard restart. I am wondering what is everyones bios settings to have this running more stable. My goal is to have the ram run at 3000mhz which i can get it to past a cinebench r15 with no freezing with everything auto except voltage -.0500. Should i be running Level 5 LLC? i am told it helps stabilize the system. I notice when it does freeze the fan slows down and speeds up which sound like a voltage drop or a downclock then when it unfreezes fan speeds up and everything is fine. Any help would be great. If you have some bios settings please post exactly what you have done so hopefully that can help me. Temps are fine no heat issues.

          Try the RAM at default fail safe timings and speed to rule out that issue.

              I still get the micro sutter/freeze. I know when its happening when the fan speed drops and when it unfreezes the speed goes back. Almost feels like the speed drops and maybe because of the voltage drop and it having to go back to speed from the drop there is a delay? i did try manual oc to 41.50x and Ram 3000 14/16/16/16/34/50 at 1.35v and vcore 1.425 and it has been stable so far i do get the odd hang say palying a game and alt tab to search something then jump back in game it there would be sort of a delay or pause for a bit then game would fast forward. I am running a 4x4 Single rank 16gb set up so not sure if i should just drop the speed to lower like 2666 or just loosen up the timing. I most benchmarks without issues and temps are well below 80 like 70c avg on all core.

                  The only way to follow to find the causes of micro freezes is from default values in BIOS, if the problems disappear try to activate D.O.C.P. or XMP and observe what happens.

                  Keep in mind that ASUS has not yet implemented the AGESA version PinnaclePI-AM4 code in its BIOS, maybe that will solve your problems … or maybe not, ASUS-Ryzen2 users should have patience.

                  You can share your AMD hardware and software experiences here, but one of the best web places to share your OC experiences is here: www.overclock.net


                  This is not the right place to find answers about stability at the same time you leave the values predetermined by manufacturers and developers.

                  Good luck with your OC


                  Edit: Nothing is perfect, the AMD Community does not either, as long as there is no space here, such as OCers or GNU/Linux users, we will look for answers in other places
