Bought the 3600. Pairing it with my old motherboard ( B350 tomahawk ) and so far it runs. Having some issues with video playback though. If I put the computer to sleep, then turn back on, can't play any videos on any browser. Youtube/twitch etc will load the picture but the video won't play. Restarting the computer will fix it. No clue why.

Also waiting for the ballistix ram to test. Hope it works out well.

X570 has at least 2

Only problem?

motherboards based on AMD 300-series and 400-series chipsets... the capacity of the SPI flash EEPROM chip that stores the motherboard UEFI firmware is woefully limited to cram in the AGESA ComboAM4 1.0.0.3a microcode on many of its motherboards.

Thanks. It's possible to do better I think if you want to try up to 1.40V, but I felt scared to try.

Also I believe these RAMs are not expensive.

Edit: Actually I just found old record showing I did push these to 1.43V (forgot I tried) and achieved 3400 CL14.

Take note this is a beta BIOS and there are still some bugs give msi some more time to roll out the official version lah

Very nice, do you have the detailed settings/timings for these 2 Micron B overclocks?

Pepperisk 19-07-2019 07:55 AM

No updates to the beta bios yet. Still at version 7A34v1OM(Beta version). Now also got issue when navigating the bios menu, very slow. Gonna reset the cmos after work and see if it helps

How much of an improvement can I expect for gaming if I upgrade from 1700 to 3700X?

Simple question but not so simple answers cos it depends - which game, which GPU, which game resolution etc...



Yet another discussion of Ryzen 3K and undervolting
Why undervolting the new Ryzen processors is not very effective


Quote:

AMD seems to be getting the most out of the processors for standard operation due to a sophisticated system of voltage, clock and temperature monitoring. This applies both to the boost, as well as the most effective operation with the appropriate voltages. The scope for overclocking and undervolving is therefore low.

Short answer, definitely will have better performance in both average frame rates and definitely better 0.1 percent lows.

Long answer, how much depends on the GFX you are using, at what resolution you game on, what games you play etc.

I think Ryzen will have a "fine wine" effect. Game engines will become more and more thread aware, Windows OS and game engine compilers will start to optimize for the Ryzen CCX structure... All of the advantages Intel has now with compilers.

any benefits...hardly:s13:

Looks like this 10AB BIOS also does not auto-adjust the NB frequency for you, screenshot still shows low speed IMC. Anyway, you can try to manually adjust it.


Here's what The Stilt says.

The "Northbridge Frequency" displayed by CPU-Z is NOT the FCLK (fabric) frequency. Instead it is the frequency of the memory controller itself (UCLK). Normally both FCLK and UCLK operate at the same speed (MEMCLK). When FCLK and MEMCLK are desynchronised, UCLK will be set to 1/2 mode. Regardless if you lower or raise it below / above the MEMCLK. For example, if MEMCLK = 3200MHz and FCLK is anything else than 1600MHz, the UCLK frequency will be MEMCLK / 2 (i.e. 800MHz).

No third party software (for the time being) can monitor FCLK frequency.
