  1. Is this with a fresh OS? If so check memtest and make sure its even stable pretty sure that memory is bad.
  2. If you ever need help with this you can always PM me directly, you have to change every setting most importantly the CAD and PROCODT settings and voltage remember you are fine to set higher voltage most DDR4 kits can run at 1.45V without even having good airflow in the case. I currently use 1.5V but i have really nice airflow and during a 9 hour memtest run it hit 50C on the max temp with everything passing.
  3. Yes it lowers your overall performance XMP is rarely ever set at tight timings and typically very loose. It will still work fine but if you want to tweak things that's the first place to start on ryzen.
  4. If you enjoy playing at higher frame rates 120+ then i would recommend 3600-3800 memory with nothing higher then 16 cas latency for Zen 2. Ram is really the ONLY area where you can tweak your setup with a Ryzen 3000 CPU as there is 0 overclocking headroom and PBO and Auto OC basically do nothing useful and can even hurt ST performance. I currently have a very high binned samsung bdie kit but it can be expensive, mainly bought it for fun to OC and tweak things((Currently at 3800mhz at 14 cas timings). What matter what you get remember this simple trick Memory divided by TCL and the higher the number the better, example down below. 3600mhz 18 cas timings = 200 3200mhz 14 cas timings = 228 In the example above the 3200mhz kit would be better and most likely either allow for an OC or even tighter timings. Regardless on what you pick remember to tweak further then XMP by using Dram Ryzen calculator.
  5. I do apologize for the delay(had to go to the hospital) i plan on making a nice write-up and a good amount of it will be old posts from Amd themselves i love the feedback so far. Again this isn't about hating on this or that if anything i'm hard on Amd cause i expect better even then, Zen for example proves that Amd is a amazing company and of course their older CPU's from 99-05
  6. If anyone is interested in having a nice long conversation about Amd's failed Bulldozer architecture and history on the subject just ask and it would be a very fun subject indeed. This is in no way to bash Amd we all make mistakes and companies are notorious for these mistakes lets not forget "New Coke", or "Microsoft Zune" or even recently with Nintendo with the "Wii U". It happens but i feel with Bulldozer something else needs to be added as it makes no sense at all from a engineering perspective to why they even thought that would work out well, from a marketing perspective yes 8 cores and high frequency sounds great on paper but engineers would never sign on to that. Not to mention if there's any tech savvy people here with a lot of knowledge when it comes to the history of bulldozer that would be great to as i would love to compare our thoughts.
  7. To be fair even a Intel Haswell I3 was a better pick then the FX the CPU was extremely terrible with IPC below the K10 even the only thing that saved it was the newer instruction sets such as AVX 2 and SSE4. I could go on for pages explaining why as i argued this back when Amd was showing off the design and i debated a person called JF-Amd(Employee from Amd) quite often about how IPC would go down and how applications wouldn't scale to 8 cores for years to come(2011 at the time back when it was a miracle for a game to use 2-3 cores well). Shared FP unit with latency issues across the board and a dumb L2 shared cache sure in the hell didn't help either. Amd engineers where quoted as saying "Hold the line on IPC" and they wanted to clock the CPU to 5Ghz, but of course Global Foundries couldn't do this. It was often said that they didn't expect Intel to make such massive gains in IPC either past Nehalem. Plus Bulldozer was originally thought of back in 05 but the engineers where split as many didn't think it was going to be worth it long term. Back before bulldozer came out engineering samples came out and board manufactures where surprised by how terrible they where so they probably assumed the FX wouldn't be worth it and didn't invest the $$$ into making better boards. If anyone is interested in a LONG very LONG back story of bulldozer i would be very happy to talk about it but i somewhat want to forget it ever happened i want to remember the FX(FX-60,FX-53) as it should be remembered the beast that made Intel cry in the corner and cheat to stay relevant.
  8. If you are just gaming grab the 1600AF its a 2600 that is slightly downclocked a little
  9. I threw up a little its a 4+1 phase board jesus christ please don't OC it. If you MUST put a fan over the VRM i mean directly above it. You will want to stay at 1.35-1.4V or less you can probably get to 4.4ghz or so at that voltage again put a fan over the board's VRM(next to the CPU socket). When these boards came out many people where upset since they could barely handle a stock 65 watt FX CPU. These FX CPU's use a TON of watts i remember when i had my 8350 just clicking on chrome made my PC use 220 watts now its at 84 using ryzen.
  10. Issue is getting a board that has bios flashback that actually allows you to update the bios without needing a older chip. Any board even one with no heatsinks on the VRM will work fine with a 65 watt 3600.
  11. I just looked and you have one heck of a nice board, no reason to not squeeze that CPU to the safest limits XTU is a great program from Intel actually to stress test components i recommend doing it while you are sleeping and at work a good 8 hours is probably enough https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24075/Intel-Extreme-Tuning-Utility-Intel-XTU I do not recommend pushing the speed without setting a manual voltage first like i said 1.2V is a nice starting point.
  12. I owned the 4790K, you want to stay below 1.3V with that CPU and really i had a golden chip at 1.225V 4.7Ghz stable using XTU for 24 hours. With that said try 4.4 1.2V then 4.5-4.6-4.7 slowly increasing voltage as needed, with a H100i you probably want to actually stay below 1.25V Edit also make sure to keep in eye out for your VRM temps
  13. Again its just a list you will get more performance by using something like Ryzen dram calculator
  14. It doesn't matter if its on the list or not the worst thing that should happen that you should do anyways is set the timings manually
  15. A couple of things first is it plugged into the 4 pin fan connector and is it a PWM fan? Also make sure you have the most up to date bios. Chipset has nothing to do with the fan speeds it's either not a PWM fan or its on a 3pin fan connector or its a bios issue that is specific to that bios
