XMP Overclocking

I got 16 GB of T-Force DDR4- "3000" RAM for my Ryzen PC. I planned to leave it at stock speeds but then I learned that Ryzens LOVE memory, so I was able to set XMP and overclock it to DDR4-2866 (OS not yet installed so I don't know if stable). However, trying to set it to DDR4-2933 makes it reboot several times before posting, and it does NOT run at DDR4-3000 speeds. What is it doing when rebooting like 5 times? Setting the timing or just unstable? What frequency should I set it at?

I have no idea what I'm doing and no one can stop me.

What Ryzen chip do you have? I am not big on AMD right now, just haven't been doing much research recently so haven't kept up with it all... but pushing RAM speeds is "hard" on the CPU. I know for intel it can be hard to get RAM fast with a CPU OC, obviously more volts usually helps and then just silicon lottery. But I am sure whoever comes along who knows Ryzen better will want to know the exact chip and mobo you have to help out better. I assume Ryzen 2 handles memory overclocks better, and different mobo's likely have an effect.

Look up and use the Ryzen Memory Calculator.  I'm running 3600 speed RAM on my 2700x.  It will help you get the most out of the rig you have.

Your board is trying to boot/train the memory to boot, via trying different timings and such... fails, retries...
When too high, aka 4000Mhz, it will try to boot with loose timings (so it CAN boot) and likely still fail if its not rated for it. Bootloops can occur.

I can hit 2600Mhz from my 2400Mhz DDR3, any higher and it wont boot, no matter how loose timings are or how high voltage goes.
When I use 2600Mhz, the board loosens my timings from Cas10 to Cas12

 

Also - Install Windows on slower speeds,.. you don't want a BSOD during install...starting you all over again.

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz

pump more voltage, say memory voltage to 1.4V and SOC voltage about 1.15 to 1.2V

maybe you should loosen the timing, you should loosen all values e.g. tfaw trfc  and etc.

You need to check what frequencies you can run on your board. Testing is necessary also, i finally settles on 2800Mhz on a 2400Mhz set for my Ram. It takes some time so slowly increase and see where you fall over.

Oh yeah I don't know how to increase RAM voltage. The BIOS only allows memory timings and XMP profile on/off.
