Cant enable XMP on my ryzen 2600 Kingston 16gb 3200mhz ram.

 Share

I recently bought myself Kingston 16GB (2 x 8GB) HyperX Fury, DDR4 3200MHz, CL16, 1.35V from a finnish retailer in hopes for faster speeds since my old ram was around 2133mhz, My computer has a MSI B450 Tomahawk motherboard updated to the latest bios. Just can't get any type of overclock working, used the Ryzen Dram calculator, or A-XMP nothing seems to work for me.

what slots are the sticks in?  they should be in the second and fourth slots from the CPU socket

They are on the second and fourth slots using dual channel.

Someone in another thread said he had to downgrade the BIOS then upgrade it again before it started working for him. Perhaps you might need to do the same thing?

 

If you scroll down you'll see he has a B450 mobo and his Ryzen was acting crazy.

Yep that's me. Except I'm using an x570 Aorus Elite.

 

The troubleshooter I used

  • Flashed BIOS to the oldest version I could and then flash it back to the newest.
  • Reset BIOS
  • Enable XMP
  • Set DRAM Volt to 1,35 
  • Set Ram to 1600mhz (DDR = double data rate)
  • Disable CMS / Enable fast boot

I did get a BSOD but it was fixed by disabling CMS.

Bios doesn't let me downgrade bios version using M-FLASH...

When oc ram, must disable power down and gear down modes in bios.

The power down mode throttles the memory voltage and gear down disabled allows use of odd memory timings.

Already tried manually overclocking with power down and gear down.

OK to properly help, I'm going to need information please.

 

I need a picture of the sticker on the Ram.

Need a screen shot of CPU-Z SPD and memory tab.

A screen shot of Bios SPD information as well.

 

See if we can get something going.

Ho man. That ram is essentially bottom of the barrel. (no offence, I understand budgets).

 

Generally SK Hynix and 2000 series chips (IMC) don't get along too well.

 

But, lets try a few things. 

First, what are you running right now. Auto, XMP, manually selected, list main timings and voltage used.

Right now I have everything at auto XMP off which is working fine, but changing any of those doesn't work and I have to reset CMOS if I didnt have the protection from my BIOS on.

Memory fail restarts x3 plus one more for the post in safe mode. You shouldn't have to clear cmos unless the lock up is that bad. The process takes up to a few minutes to complete.

 

That out of the way, how about a screen shot of Cpu-z memory tab, I'm curious how the board is posting the memory and what Jedec it had selected, we will try overclocking from there.

OK cool, Jedec #8. (that's a terribly high number) 

 

So here, it's running the memory at 1.20v - 

 

Change tRas to 36 and tRc to 74 manually in the timing page.

Also set 17-17-17-17 manually on the timing bios page.

Set Ram voltage to 1.35v

 

Don't overclock it yet. Just set those three things and F10 and restart, pop into windows confirm post here.

I also see that 1:12 divider in your screen shot. The timings are being automatically changed when you increase memory speed to that 1:12 divider. That I think is where the ugly happens with the odd memory timings. Be sure to set Gear down mode and power down mode disabled for sure. ( I know you know, just a reminder)

 

I want you at 16-16-16 at the current speed. This is our primary goal. Ryzen doesn't like odd memory timings typically, so that's against us here.

Sometimes motherboards add a little extra voltage for stability. Just a reminder

OK we are on the right track!

 

So, next....

 

set the 17s to 16s no other changes.

Go into windows and lets see if we picked up some luck and even some performance.

Yep, that's the LLC on auto. We are going to shut off power down mode and run a manual memory voltage of 1.35v.

Ho man we are on a roll.

 

Next.... click the memory speed up one.

Look at the divider. It only liked 17-17-17 at 1:12.

 

I set you free from here.

Up speed one click and test.

Wash rinse and repeat until no post or unstable back the oc down a click or two retest and save the profile.
