On topic question for the Ryzen folk: Has your motherboard vendor released an AGESA 1.0.0.7 BIOS update for your board yet? MSI haven't yet...
I was wondering that too and checked last week...since we have the same board, I guess we'll have to wait :)
Last time I used my desktop was like, 3 months ago, are you using the most recent UEFI? v54 or v55? Is it stable/good?

God, i still love this game. :) 250+fps in game with these settings:


Cinebench R15 next & that's it, or atleast until i'll have stable everything @ 4.0GHz/1.4v. :toast:

I updated the bios on my C6H the other day, "Update to AGESA 1071 for new upcoming processors." It hasn't made any difference to OC limits and voltage requirements if that's what you're hoping for.

I used to love AvP. The game was better than the reviews at the time said. I guess it was a bit nostalgic for me too, I loved the old AvP2.

I hadn't seen that about AGESA reverting back to 1.0.0.1 anywhere...

I haven't seen that, I thought the AGESA 1071 sounded weird so just quoted from the Asus website. FAIK it could be a typo? idk.

@PHaS3: I DL'd F10 EFI update from GB (AGESA 1.0.7.2a) only to see that it boot loops like a complete c*nt & "downgrade" to F4 & forget bout any - any - issues whatsoever. Means i will also postpone the purchase & the testing of Zen top-tier APU, what can i say. :):toast:

Last one will be C:MD's CarMODgeddon mode, with custom & stock/default cars. For the time being, after that same stuff @ 4.0GHz. :) Cheers all. Wish me luck, i'm also recording it & edit all the vids with Lightworks, it has an option to edit & upload all this stuff to YT, despite the quite steep learning curve (atleast for me) this app looks & works like a charm. :toast:

Sorry for double-post.

At 3.9GHz, 1.41250v vCore, LLC @ Extreme, everything else - Auto. Prime95 (+ HWInfo64 & CPU-Z took monitoring duties) ran for about 55-56mins, just got back, none of the aforementioned, probably PC restarted, (hard reset?), add some SoC voltage a bit to the mix? Highest suggested in M.I.T is 1.1v while it's @ Auto. I wanna have stable 4.0GHz for photography & videos, plus modding in Blender, plus games, etc...... Or atleast 3.9GHz/1.41v.

P.S. Cinebench R15 gave me a score of 1713cb @ this OC. (3.9GHz/1.41v) I can post the pic if y'all want. :)

From what I've seen, 1,45v is the max vCore without heavy degradation, and for the SoC, AMD says never go over 1,25v, 1,15v should be enough for anything. For DRAM voltage, the IMC can do 1,4v 24/7.

If it just up and crashed in P95 it's likely V_core related. Typically if it's ram/IMC then it drops threads

Thanx guys, will go for it in an hour from now. MB sets SoC @ 1.1v when Auto, FYI.

*EDIT*

Did it, at the cost of bumping up SoC & vCore to 1.1v & 1.42v respectively, LLC still @ Extreme.

Ryzen 7 3.9GHz Prime95 2h+ run.jpg

2:21h at 3.9GHz/1.42v on all 8 cores, 16 threads - this CPU is a beast. :) Cinebench R15 @ same frequency (there are 2, but i give y'all the current one i did few mins ago):
Ryzen 7 1700X 3.9GHz Cinebench R15 score #2.jpg

If everything goes right with 4.0GHz, i'm gonna make it my 24/7 OC. Cheers all. :toast:

*EDIT #2*

Carmageddon: Max Damage, CarMODgeddon, custom car (AlexTSK's SDT Suppressor):

One of the games that occupy my time, an antidote to all racing games, where racing is for wimps, according to original 1997 classic manual. Yeah i have the original + Splat Pack as well, in a form of Carmageddon Max Pack, in my Steam's Games library. :)

Asrock have released new BIO's with updated Agesa support for Raven Ridge, I updated from the previous latest revision 3.10 to 3.20 which was a bridge bios for 4.40 which is the offical raven ridge supported bios, some new options have appeared in the bios and XMP seems to be working off the bat in my system setting my 2 different sticks of 2800 8GB dual rank to 2800 14.15.15 1T without me having to manually change any timings or change any voltages which I needed to do previous to this bios version for them to be stable. Hopefully I can hit 2933 which has eluded me somewhat before now, not OC the CPU as of yet to see if there is any difference but I will be testing that later tonight.

@NdMk2o1o: I have Flare X 3200MHz CL14 2x8GB, set this frequency with XMP function of my Aorus X370 Gaming K7 & forgot, works so far like a charm & stable @ that. CPU (Ryzen 7 1700X) is @ 3.9GHz/1.r2v vCore, idles @ 29 degrees C, but that's because it's cooled by EKWB's EK-Kit X360. Just my 2 cents/pennies/insert your fav currency format/etc.... :)

Funny thing happened tho: for about 3 days whenever i launch any 3DMark test with my GTX 1070 G1 MSI Afterburner OC profile, it (3DMark) abrupts prematurely. All tests work from start to finish without any hickups @ graphics card's default/factory clocks, but whenever i launch this OC profile (+125MHz core/GPU, 8208MHz VRAM, 65% fan speed, etc....), can't finish even any of the demos, Fire Strike demo is the only exception.

You might want to revisit your GPU OC then. Sounds like it's not stable enough for the harder tests.

I just replaced my OLD Q9650 Intel setup of 10 years with a new Ryzen 3 1300X put it on a GA-AB350M-Gaming 3 MB and straight out of the box stock cooling 3.72GHz! Amazingly fast CPU. Still have an old video card so I am limited on that front getting a better card this week ( nothing over 150 bucks ). Once I get better cooling and more RAM I will start to clock it up see if I can get 4Ghz that would be cool!

You should be able to get the 1300X to 4ghz without much trouble at all. It might need a minor voltage bump, but nothing drastic.

Nah, it's the missing (or corrupted) SystemInfo file i learnt about, Googled for it, gave me that info; Futuremark support says it happens with any test, when Win 10 Fall Creators update installed, this thing messes with SystemInfo file or some such shit. Will do a more thorough research bout it. :) Thanx regardless.

Valley might not be that demanding, even though it should be with it's lush terrain, rain & other effects, but Heaven 4.0 is still a resource hog to this day, i would prefer it over any Fire Strike, Time Spy or any other 3DMark test any day: the entire "continent" filled to the brim with DX11 tessellated goodness. Time Spy Extreme - now that would be more appropriate, (4k & DX12) but i haven't "upgraded" ($$) to Advanced edition yet, so..... :)

P.S. Checked C:MD again, CarMODgeddon mode, with this GPU OC profile, runs great. Even funnier than that, it actually runs like charm after i uninstalled 3DMark in it's entirety. :laugh: Also, Time Spy Extreme reserved for multi-GPU/multicore rigs, with CPU & GPU(s) OC'd, plus one needs a 4k monitor, one i'm eyeing for now is this one - a 4k, 27" LED IPS goodness & with prices for PC components "not declining" (for a lack of a better word) i don't see myself using that particular test or 3DMark in it's entirety this week, or even next few months. Again, thanx regardless, cheers. :toast:

You don't need a monitor of the test's resolution, 3DMark automatically does the scaling.

But i'd still want to play AvP 3/2010, C:MD, DOOM (4/2016) & rest in 4K + use Blender @ same res, UHD is yummy. :laugh: (jk bout the yummy part but you get the picture :))

This monitor caught my eye for so many reasons - 4K crammed into 27" matrix, LED IPS, 178/178 degrees viewing angles, little if no ghosting, 5ms response, price is if still a little tough to stomach, but still fair, you name it, for me it just screams - have me in your life or such shit. 3DMark will have to wait til i get this baby. Hold it! How could i forget! Adjustable height, tilt, vertical views, for games & graphical editing (3DS Max, Photoshop, Blender, etc.....) - this thing just screams awesomeness for a guy like me. Hell, video editing will probably look & work like charm on this one, as well. Man, it sucks to work for a salary, but whatever it takes - by March i gotta have it in my possession.

On topic: 4.0GHz did NOT work for me, applied few more volts to vCore & SoC voltage - Cinebench R15 restarted the rig a bit more than halfway through. Will my EK-Kit X360 handle 1.46 or even 1.5v vCore/1.2v SoC? Oh, and RAM voltage is @ the RAM sticks 1.35v.

I finally belong in this group. With my upcoming Ryzen PC Gaming setup. Ordered it and just waiting for the shipment. :D:)
I do have a question though, I really wanted to get the 1920X Threadripper 12-Core / 24-Threads but didn't like the 180W beside it. I rather have lower 95W in the regular Ryzens. Did I do well to avoid the Threadrippers this round? Ty

Oo, you, like me are upgrading from fx8350. BTW, nice choice for a mobo and cpu, me personally went to the same mobo, only the professional version and a step further with 1800x for a cpu. Well, the graphic card has to be upgraded too, as my gtx 780 grows more older for todays games, so went to 1080ti. When you assemble it, you can post results!

'ssup you two, make me 3rd (for about ~2 months actually), only with GA-AX370 Gaming K7, rest you can see in my sys specs.

Super XP, 1700X overclocked to 3.9GHz is on par with 1800X & beating it when @ 4.0GHz, wait for 2nd gen Ryzens (Pinnacle Ridge), will be better investment. I know i will buy one along with Zen-based APU. I have really hard time not recommending the regular Ryzens over Threadrippers. Runs circles around any FXs & i7s in multithreaded applications, more than decent in any games i have, soon will test DOOM 4/2016 & Quake Champions once will purchase these 2 games. Only rant i have, if you will, is my 1700X have so far hard time hitting 4.0GHz, but i also have 1700 non-X, that one can hit that frequency easy according to multitude of YT & regular reviews, so i'm ok. :) You did good, only reason to be sorry that you didn't purchased Threadrippers is either if you have unlimited amount of money or if you Linus/JayzTwoCents/Elric Phalres/etc... :laugh: jk You got multithreaded beast & more than decent gaming CPU if you have really fast RAM, TridentZ in particular. Make sure to update EFI ASAP tho, if you OC RAM, it will only get better especially in gaming, AGESA 1.0.0.6 unlocks RAM frequencies all the way to DDR4 4000MHz. Good to see you 2 here, good luck. Cheers. :toast:

That Corsair M.2 SSD should make a huge speed difference. I wanted Thtradripper just don't like power draw. I'll stick to Ryzen for now. And see if a Thtradripper 2 does better with power.

Eventually I want 64-128 GB DDR4, and up to 32 CPU threads. Lol
