This is all done with manual OC settings only. No XFR2 used.
Nnot blaming MSI for this, after all it's only on 1.10 bios for this board. But it's proving exceedingly challenging getting this chip p95 or IBT stable above 4.3GHz atm.
Not that I get errors, the system just locks up & complete reboot is only way out of it. Even running the ram at default settings after checking ram with memtest86, then using TPU's memtest64. No errors at defult settings & even when using OC on ram to 2933Mhz 16-17-17 @ 1.35v for dailiy benching & gaming. That's about the max this Kingston Hyper X fury kit - 2400MHz, will run on this board so far.
I know I need better ram & it will be incoming soon.

Another thing weird about this board is dialing in CL17, its tricky as it will be indicated in bios screen when viewed but in windows, all apps report CL18!

However in RMU v1.4, can boot at 4.4GHz no problem & run its inbuilt stability test for the maximum 300 seconds allowed within that software package. But haven't tried yet with 2933MHz OC on ram. The temps don't get anywhere near what IBT or p95 small ffts can produce. So I'm a little understandably skeptical as to how reliable the stability test @ 4.4GHz is with this version of RMU. Although going by how AMD;s Overdrive package worked with stability testing on my old FX-8350, whilst using the rig for daily gaming, I had no issues with stability ever.
So its kinda hard to fault AMD's own software stress testing packages if history is anything to go by imo.

2933MHz OC on ram OK for 10 standard runs but cpu thermals are an issue imo.

Dropping Vcore down to 1.35v @ same CPU clocks, however RAM downclocked to 2733MHz for 10 runs on high setting.

RMU v1.4 @ 4.4GHz, 2733MHz ram.

Another thing that's fun to play with on this board is mouse control in bios for fan settings.

Using the mouse to set graph points produces this on screen, although the actual mouse pointer doesn't show in screenshots.

This is the highest I can run IBT with 10 runs on standard. Ram @ defult to avoid issues with this using this particular software... Any higher CPU clocks such as 4.4GHz results in lockups around 4th-6th run.

More OC testing continues! :toast:

Attempted boot @ 4.45GHz, system fails to boot. Jumper reset in order.

Have 16GB Kit Team Group Dark TDGED416G3000MC15ADC01 > Link , currently installed now & carrying out intense Memtest86 (v7.5) ram OC test, then onto Memtest64 (current v1.0)
System had issues booting into windows at default XMP profiles with CL15 @ rated 1.35v (3000MHz).
Even 16-16-16-38 @ 1.36 fails half way through test 1 in Memtest86 @ 3066MHz

CPU@default except XFR2 enabled. Apart from the bios settings listed back in this thread for CPU, Ram settings for voltages & subtimings are at default except Vdimm & main timings.
Really have no interest in running anything beyond 1.36 Vdimm.


Loosening timings to test @ 3066MHz in Memtest86 (17-17-17-38) @ 1.36v, 4 passes complete in Memtest86.

Now the lengthy process of booting into windows & Memtest64 begins....

Trying to get Ryzen DRAM Calculator working but it has issues accepting data for me... author indicates update incoming.
In the mean time, can't get system to boot with anything past 3066MHz atm, either with CL16,17 or 18....
But good results so far with Memtest64 running for 4 hrs today. I'm not one to let the system just run all night or all day if I'm not within close proximity of it. I just don't think it's practical if an error is thrown up & no one's around to reset the system for hours...

Can't get more than 10240MB ram to test with memtest64 as Windows reports it can't allocate it

Thaipoon Burner v1.4 reports this set of RAM has Samsung B die! from all accounts I've read up on with these chips, they should be great OCers if I can get correct data from RDR. Enter into bios, reboot & test.
