So far i'm having nothing but BSODs with my first AMD build in 15 years.

What am i looking here, is the memory or the cpu?



Ryzen 7 5800X
Asus ROG Strix B550-E Gaming
HyperX Fury Black HX436C17FB3K4/32

Currently on BIOS 1401 and i also tried the new Beta 1602, which crashes as hard.

If the issue turns out to be the memory i will return it with a screenshot and log of Memtest, and get a G.Skill kit which is on the QVL list of my motherboard.

All systems do. To run odd CAS you have to disable GDM/PD which is a pita on AMD.

Second the memory being the most likely problem... as always.

If the issue turns out to be the memory i will return it with a screenshot and log of Memtest, and get a G.Skill kit which is on the QVL list of my motherboard.
Doesn't have to be on the QVL list just get a set with matched timings, like 14-14-14-14-XXXXX.

Tried that with 16-18-18-38 @ 3200 MHz, it still spits out the same errors.
Only getting memtest errors for rowhammer?


A good idea, HyperX didn't do great for my last zen+ system either. Generally speaking G.SKILL probably have the best kits for AMD's lineup.
After 4.5 hours i get the same errors as in the screenshot i posted.
Doesn't have to be on the QVL list just get a set with matched timings, like 14-14-14-14-XXXXX.
32GB 14-14-14-XX costs over 300 euros here in the Netherlands.


That's good enough for me for 200 euros, and it's also on the QVL list.

Yeah, but it's not on the QVL list.

And at this point i don't trust anything else anymore, without any major hassle.

I've had that kit working on 3 separate Ryzen builds no issue, QVL isn't the be all end all ;) You got one bad memory kit, not all are.

Probably just faulty RAM then, what happens with stock BIOS non XMP settings ?

I followed the memory finder on the G-Skill site and bought, they were not on the motherboard QVC but G-Skill stated they tested and yup, they work fine.
Good price , great memory. I haven't been able to run 1 T in ages and not even timing either.
16-19-19-39-85 1T, 3600 speed memory running 3600. One click !

New RAM arriving a day later.

I did manage to find 1 good ram stick out of the 4 from my HyperX kit.

But i still get BSODs with Optimized Defaults, i'm starting to wonder if my CPU is bad, broken memory controller? Or would MemTest86 atleast still throw errors then?

I did downgrade to AGESA 1.1.0.0 Patch B now though, a quick google said people have better results with that.

Managed to actually play a game for an hour so far without crashing on AGESA 1.1.0.0 Patch B.

EDIT:

Well nevermind.

I hope the G.Skill memory i get tomorrow is the solution, otherwise i will go back to Intel, i'm reading too many Ryzen horror stories on the internet.

Horror stories? I am one of the early adopters with Ryzen :laugh: The first generation was the only generation which had major memory issues. Those were solved with newer AGESA versions

But I think Asus is the culprit of your issues. Can you try to downgrade to bios version 1004?

I may actually have a bad infinity fabric i been told, and that wouldn't be the first time, duds happen.

Since NOTHING works so far.

Tried 3 BIOS revisions now and on all of them the systems BSODs with the same WHEA error at even stock BIOS settings.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Bus/Interconnect Error
Processor APIC ID: 0 (this one changes)


Well new memory is the same deal, a whole lof of 0x00000124.

I'm going to wrap this chapter up after a week and a half, and build back my 4770K.

And never think about getting AMD ever again.

Did you even try bios version 1004?

Please post a screenshot of ZenTimings since it is very important to have the correct memory configuration. Too high auto voltages can also cause an instable system :laugh:

I found out my DDR4 sticks don’t like 1.4V but 1.35/1.368V(Auto) doesn’t cause instability.

Can you share a screenshot of ZenTimings? I am currious about the SOC voltage as well.
