  1. i took it off XMP and just set the timings manually and it worked fine. The XMP settings must of changed something else.
  2. I beleive the above poster was correct. All I did was manually set 18-22-22-42 instead of using XMP and my score results went back to where they were. Though oddly, I didnt improve any. latency did a few points. Good enough for me for now. Ill do a consierable amount of tuning later. Im still not hitting 4.5ghz as often as I like. Solidworks is mostly single threaded so I would like to get that performance up a little.
  3. ill do some more testing after work. my bet is that at 3200 the score will drop further since the fclock will drop to match. but just a hunch.
  4. it doesn't matter how "reliable" it is. it consistently shows a lower score with the ram timings tightened. I did run cinebench and it was 2165 average across 3 test with xmp memory on. with xmp off, it scored 2204.
  5. added to post, its a asus ws x570 ace Im running latest bios . Ram is vengeance lpx 3600 cas 18 8gb x 4
  6. its 1:1. both test were coupled. checked in Ryzen master to make 100% sure when i saw the odd result.

  8. I ran my new 3800x build through UserBench today. I LIke the benchmark for its comparison purposes across a generic workload. it scored verywell, The CPU was in the 93rd percentile. but when I got to looking at the memory, the latency was a little high on the ram. So I opened HWinfo and sure enough, even though the ram was set to 3600 mhz manually, It didnt pick up the advertised timings (obviously since i didnt enable xmp) So for reference the timings that are active are 3600mhz, 26-25-25-58 (horrible) So I enabled XMP and my motherboard reports that the ONLY changes that are being made is the memory timings to 18-22-22-42. I boot the system with no problem and run the benchmark again and it scored CONSIDERABLY less. the cpu performance dropped all they way to the 7th percentile. (FROM (93!) the gpu also dropped, as well as the ram score. I cut the XMP profile off and re-ran the test, and got the performance back. Both modes had the infinity fabric coupled at 1:1 (1800mhz) I have no explanation for this unless its some kind of very misconfigured sub timing. Anyone? (EDIT _ appologies, the Ram score actually did go up a couple of points. from 97% to 101% with XMP. its just the CPU that dropped. The gpu did as well but negligible) BUILD: 3800x Vengeance 3600mhz cas 18 Ram (8gbx4) ws pro Ace x570
  9. Your right. for some reason I was thinking USB 2 and not pcie 2. derp.
  10. that puts the usb card at gen 2 speeds. I use usb 3 drives for speed purposes. plus all my devices will have to run off a single port. I dont see anywhere on the board that anything shares slot pcie16_4. something does share 5 but Im not using it. the only "greater than 2" card setup thats actually listed in the manual is a 3 gpu setup with x16 x16 and x8 on slots 1 3 and 5. Im thinking slots 1 3 4 & 5 and just leave the chipset to its own devices.
  11. Im trying to get my old PC setup for unraid. I have 2 quadro 2000s, one in slot 1 and one in slot 3. I also had a m.2 drive in the motherboard, but that was shared with slot 3. forcing x8 on the card. I would like the cards to both be x16. I have 4 cards i need to get installed. 2 quadro 2000s, a usb controller card with 2 seperate controllers on board. (x4 card) and the NVME drive on the asus add in board, (also x4) Thats a total of 40 lanes. Im trying to determine the best place to put the NVME drive and controller card. (either slot 4 or slot 5) I "thought" that some of these lanes were shared with the chipset, or came from the chipset. I cant find any mention of that in the users manual and I am wondering if maybe I have my boards confused.
  12. Guess we shall see how well the 3800x handles solidworks and mastercam. 200mhz higher boost with more cores than my overclocked 6850k. The delicious box.....(that p2000 is going in another pc. My p4000 is going in this)
  13. I considered using separate USB cards, However I have a thunderbolt card in the 4th slot that I intend to use for high speed storage outside of the machine. That's another topic though as I dont know if the induvidual VMs would be able to access it since it would need to be shared across both workstations.
  14. I would do that, but I have one chance to buy hardware and I need to get it all in on this PO. you know how owners are. dont want to guy back later. even if it is only a couple hundred bucks
