Ryzen 7 2700 and GA-AB350 question7

Dxer

Okay, so my wonderful wife buys me this CPU for Xmas as well as a new 34" IPS.  Totally unexpected.  :)

 

I updated the BIOS F22 prior to installation.  It appears to have gone off without a hitch.  Install the CPU.   Boots up and runs fine.

Now the issue is that I lost the silicon lottery with this one.  I was currently running my 1600 @ 3.9ghz 24/7.  I can only hit 3.8ghz

with this CPU and it should be able to hit 4.1ghz?  

 

So did I lose the lottery or perhaps this motherboard just can't run it properly?  I am running the Gigabyte AB-350 Gaming 3 - CF board

that I bought last year shortly after Ryzen came out.

Yeah, that motherboard's pretty bad.

Upgrade it to a B450-F or B450 Tomahawk

Main PC:  MacBook Air (M1, 2020), 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage; running macOS, but waiting for Linux to be ported to the M1

3.8 GHz on that CPU is probably better than 3.9 on the other. Of course, voltage matters too. What have you tried?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Tried 1.4v @3.9ghz an no luck.  It will boot but eventually will lock up shortly after loading into windows.  

Also CPU temps are good.  Currently at 3.8ghz @ 1.221V and stress testing shows CPU temps in low 60s.

Just an update.  I figured out that the BIOS wasn't saving my vCore voltages.  No idea why.  I could before I flashed my BIOS from F10 to the current F22.  So that would be my

only guess.

I could increase the voltage with Ryzen Master though.  I was able to find a stable 4ghz @ 1.4v   

I couldn't get stable at 4.1 @ 1.4v though.  After stress testing at 4ghz, temps rose up to 80c.  A bit high for my liking so I won't bother trying 1.5V.  

So for now, until I try a new motherboard, I will stay at 3.8ghz where my temps hang around 63c under full load.  I only do some light gaming, astro image processing and an occasional video anyway. I don't need a super computer.  Having the extra 4 threads will be helpful.  

 

On a side note, the wife gave me the thumbs up to get a GTX1070.  So that will be ordered in the next few days.  :)
