The first gen eluktronics max 17 came with a 9750h + rtx 2070. Stock ram was 2666Mhz and the 9750h IMC can run maximum 2933Mhz. For the last year I have been upgraded to G skill 2x32gb 3200 ddr4 @ 1.2v.
Its Jedec profiles are from 2666mhz to 3200mhz. At first boot it was unstable and running full at 3200mhz. After a few restarts and possibly disconnecting the internal laptop battery, the Motherboard/CPU chipset selected a more stable Jedec profile and the ram stuck to 2666mhz, since 3200mhz was completely unstable. It's been running 64gb @ 2666mhz since June last year. Recently through the Ram started running again at 3200mhz.
My question is shouldnt the IMC default to the most stable Jedec profile for the cpu/IMC? and not the ram choosing its own jedec profile?
Ive been trying to recreate the instance where the ram downclocked to 2666mhz, but cant seem to make it get there again.
