Idk. Only so much reliability and validity to a forum poll. I mean there are definitely some of us who are actually 4000/2000 stable but it took a lot of work. I’m wondering if we did a poll and asked everyone over 3800 to provide stability testing and screenshoots, if that number would be the same. Self reporting with no evidence is highly unreliable. It would be more interesting to have everyone post screenshots, tally the results and report percentages and speeds afterwards. To draw conclusions about anything would become much more valid. I could give a crap about dick swinging. I’d like to learn more about the science through evidence based reporting. So, how about any of us with 4000/2000 do a screenie of an hour of OCCT memory test with cpu z, zen timing and Thaiphoon?
Problem with that is that memory tests (HCI, TM5, Karhu, P95 Large) only test memory. On Ryzen there are three domains that need to be stable - the memory, the UMC, and the IF. You can kind of use P95 to test the UMC, but there is basically no proper test for 100% IF stability, aside from doing as diverse a workload as possible day after day. So while you can quite easily verify if your B-die itself is stable at any profile, all it takes is one unexpected reboot/failure to POST/Bus Interconnect WHEA to unravel days/weeks/months of supposed "stability" at 2000MHz IF. Knowing how IF works, it'll be a long time before I can take any owners' word for it that they can "stably" do 4000 1:1. Helps to be playing games that are simultaneously memory, CPU and GPU intensive, but gaming is far from consistent enough to be considered a "test".
