First of all I apologize for probably being one of the many to bother you with this, in my defense I've read your articles thoroughly and applied that knowledge and tools in my DRAM tweaking attempts, so I didn't come straight here to annoy you with this. But still, I am honestly sorry. The only reason I'm doing this because I am desperate. I've sent the very same message directly to the thread starter but I guess he's a busy man and it'll be more effective to ask here as well.
My PC Specs:
Ryzen 7 1700 (Stock cooler)
Asus B350-F Strix (The whole case has only 1 exhaust fan. I'll buy a new case but I think for the same money I can sell this Motherboard add the same amount of money and get a better motherboard, but I'm trying to avoid buying a new Motherboard. Can those case fans really have a major impact on memory overclock?)
GTX 1060 6GB Palit Jetstream (Not that it's relevant but still leaving it here in case it is)
G.Skill Trident Z RGB F4-3200C16D-16GTZRX when I got the ram I just plugged it in, went to bios and enabled D.O.C.P. profile for 3200MHz and it worked but the problem is that games crash after a while and when I run TestMem5 it reports many errors. At first I ran MemTest86(4 cycles) and it didn't register any error which was odd.
The stock DOCP timings are 16-18-18-18-38-56 and so on. Thaiphoon Burner says it's a Samsung B-Die but it's probably the worst of the worst Samsung B-Dies and that's why it's rated at CL16 instead of CL14. I saw that towards the end of this article that 1usmus wrote that every Samsung B-Die chip should be able to run @ 3200MHz, he even said cl14. I don't care about CL14. As long as it's 3200, cl16 and stable..
As I said, your instructions/guides were applied step by step and nothing gave satisfying results. I even went as high as 19-19-19-40 and it didn't work.
Each time I mess with CLDO VDDP voltage, SOC voltage, ProcODT, CMD2T my PC just screams. Sometimes it accepts the values but doesn't boot. I reboot the system after adjusting timings, voltages etc but instead of booting normally it's just stuck on black screen after restart and nothing happens so I have to clear CMOS. Also, I did cold boot as it was recommended, tried warm boot as well, nothing helped.
DRAM Calculator gave me some absurd timings that my RAM just wouldn't play with, not even near them. I tried timings for Samsung B-Die, which is mine, but also Samsung OEM, Hynix AFR, Hynix MFR. The reason I tried Hynix is because I saw some people recommending it to some other guy who also had a crappy binned Samsung B-Die kit.
It would mean a whole world to me if you could help me out here. I have OCD, not that severe but it's still here and it is messing with my mind not working at 3200MHz. I can't sleep well. I've been trying this for more than 2 months. It works stable only with the DOCP timings but I have to lower it to 3000MHz. Wont work with 3066, 3133 or 3200.
My motherboard doesn't have bclk settings so I couldn't edit that one.
It runs the latest bios: 5220

Thank you for your time and help, I really appreciate it a lot.
With all due respect,
I cant answer Your questions but according to holy bible of bdie finder Your sticks sku is not on list. Wonder which one is wrong...
If thaiphoon (which i use as well) is wrong for some reason, then no wonder Your settings are not working.
hope You'll get to the bottom of this.
EDIT: This ram stick set is not on Your motherboards qualified vendors list (you can check that on asus page).
So its not been tested to work with that config on Your board. Might or might not work.
In this case it doesn't.
