Can't get 3200mhz RAM running on R5 2600

Specs: 

Ryzen 5 2600 (stock)

Asrock B450m Steel Legend

Corsair Vengeance LPX 16gb 3200 (2x8) CL16

MSI Gaming X RTX 2060 Super

500gb WD Blue SATA SSD

 

It's been about 6 months since I've built my computer and when I first built it, I tried running my RAM at it's rated 3200mhz speed but I was getting BSOD's and game crashes. So I lowered the frequency down to 2933mhz and use it as is cause I didn't have much time to fiddle with it. Now that quarantine is here, I have time to figure out what's keeping my RAM from running at it's rated speed. In my attemps of running 3200mhz, I used the default XMP profile and haven't touched anything else. I tried running a Cinebench R20 and it ran perfectly. I then tried tried running a game (Fortnite) and after about 5 minutes of the game being launched, I get an error message saying that the application has crashed (which never happens on 2933mhz)...

 

Thanks in advance!

Anthony

update the bios, and try the xmp again.

I was about to do that, but on the Asrock page, the latest bios download has a warning saying: "ASRock do NOT recommend updating this BIOS if Pinnacle, Raven or Summit Ridge CPU is being used on your system"... I have a R5 2600 (which I am pretty sure is Pinnacle Ridge). Should I still update? Here's a link to that page: https://www.asrock.com/MB/AMD/B450M Steel Legend/#BIOS

You can at least update to V 2.50. Your R5 2600 is in face a Pinnacle Ridge chip. Updated AGESA will certainly help.

Ok so I updated my BIOS to 2.50 and tried the XMP profile again. I launched my game and played a couple of games without any issues. I then left my game open for about 3 hours to see if it'll crash but it didn't so I closed the game out. I tried running Cinebench and everything was fine. Unfortunately, when I came back in the evening to play some games, my game crashed after about 45 minutes and when I launched it back up it would consistently crash. So I am back to square 1... I tried running it again this morning and got a different type of error which I never encountered before. It says I ran out of video memory which is completely dumb because I have an RTX 2060 SUPER with 8gb of GDDR6 memory and Fortnite is such a low GPU intensive game (especially at low settings and 1080p)…

I thought that 1,350v was already high for DDR4 memory... What voltage would you recommend?

I've tried running 1.4v and the game crashed in the first minute... I went back to 1.35v and managed to play about 5 minutes before it crashed... Not sure what I am supposed to do anymore...

I don't think the AsRock B450M Steel Legend can support higher memory speed than DDR4-2933 with a Ryzen 2000-series CPU (Pinnacle Ridge).

This is straight off the AsRock's site.

Try the following:

  1. Enabled XMP / DOCP, so the timings + voltages are set automatically for you, according to XMP specs
  2. Maually set the DRAM frequency / ratio down 1 or 2 from DDR4-3200 (e.g. DDR4-3000 or DDR4-2933)
  3. See if THAT is stable.

 

We need to find a stable starting point first, then we can move up from there...

Ok so I tried running 3000mhz and didn’t get any crashes. I then tried 3200mhz and after about 20 minutes I got a BSOD (KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED) and it says that nvlddmkm.sys has failed...

Okay, so stick with DDR4-3000 for a full 1 or 2 days, and see if you get ANY similar crashes at all.

It could be either a limitation of the motherboard (seems like it), or the CPU not being able to handle DDR4-3200.

Try adding a surge protector..my 2 pc can't overclock plugged into the wall...but adding a surge protector both overclocks well(maybe just my wall plugs faulty)...

Just curious have you found a fix yet? I'm having the same issue with running 3200mhz on ram. Game crashes every few minutes and sometimes even BSOD.

Don't know if y'all are still having the same problem still but I also had a similar experience with the same processor (R5 2600) and Memory Speed (3200mhz) but I think I've solved my issues (so far at least, haven't had a big crash after fine tuning timings and voltages.) So right now I'm just sharing.

 

Try setting your SOC voltage (Google what it is for your specific board because it's kind of different depending on the motherboard manufacturer) to 1.1v and see if things are stable then. From what I've read from different forums, it helps out with memory stability cuz it gives the memory controller a bit more juice and power. Keep in mind though, it does add heat to the CPU tho. If it's stable, you could try reducing the voltage little by little, I have mine in set to 1.025v but your mileage may vary.

Pretty hard Necro!!!

 

The Ryzen 2600 memory controller is good for 2933mhz with the least amount of intervention. Beyond that frequency, would expect some tweaking to be done to run a faster speed as you've described.

 

When running XMP, the motherboard should default CPU SOC voltage to 1.08v all on its own. 

 

Good luck to you overclockers out there!
