ram issue

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, I just finished my first build and I ran into a few problem.

First, I would like my case fans to monitor the GPU temperature and adjust accordingly, as the GPU produces most of the heat in the case. I tried Speed fan and I could not understand the logic behind it. So I went into BIOS to set the fan curve manually, but there are only 3 options: monitor CPU Temp, Monitor motherboard temp, and monitor TcTr1. Does that Tctr1 mean GPU? 

Second, every time I go into bios and set XMP profile to profile 1, which is 3000mhz, the system would not boot when I exit bios. The pc would make a sound that insinuates electronic failures and shut down completely, and it would boot up again, and shut down again until I hit the reset button. then when I go into the ram voltage, the value is highlighted in red and I can't change it to anything over 1.35v. what should do?


any help is good, thanks everyone!

For issue number one, controlling the graphics card's fans is best done through Afterburner (though other options do exist, AB is generally the best choice).


In the way of RAM, I'm not all that good with Ryzen but I do know that it does seem to be halfway picky about higher-clocked ram (especially first-gen). Best suggestion there is to try it at 2666MHz and see where it goes from there.
