Non personally though there's a reddit with the same kit and more info than I can provide. My kit is micron I might see what dies they are compared to these later.


Why do reddit links create a big wall of text when I link them here? That's why the spoiler tags.

Thanks.

I have mine on 2666 with no changes except voltage to 1.25

I have a link for thaiphoon burner for info on your ram if you want it.

I think I have it in my downloads from when I was messing with Ryzen DRAM calc. Have you tried 3000 with maybe 16.16.16 timings? going off the few lines I read from the reddit link I posted they should be good for 3000-3466 so I'd start there and apply 1.35v. May want to change the TRFC values as it is also mentioned they require a higher than usual value, mine are the same and require 425trfc for my overclock. Not sure it has much of a bearing on general performance though at least none that would outweigh the increase in clock speed.

Edit: I have Hynix dies not Micron as I first thought :p

Here you go tigger, this is one of the best resources for ryzen memory timings :)
https://www.techpowerup.com/download/ryzen-dram-calculator/

This is useful for verifying changes too:
https://www.techpowerup.com/download/ryzen-timing-checker/

Pretty cool that those 2400mhz flare x sticks are B-die, they should clock pretty decently. Set 1.35-1.4v and see if you can get to 3000mhz or more with CL14 timings, if not then drop to CL16.

btw the OC profile I left on that board had the CL14 timings and all the sub timings dialed in from the dram calculator, you could use that as a base and drop the frequencies :)

Edit - someone pointed out to me that your memory is micron bdie, not samsung, should still overclocking reasonably well but probably not that far with cl14, good luck.
