I set RAM frequency to advertised spec instead of using XMP(question)

    I think 6 hours is good enough.

    Looks like I'm set. :D

    Actually, I meant to ask.

    Does this look right?

    Well for sure. Your rig is stable obvs at those speeds and thats great. :)
    But to be honest I think you should try: 16,18,18,18,36. T1 @ 1.35v that's a pretty standard rate for 3200.
    BUT only try those timings if you can find the RAM speed selector drop-down thing in your bios. This would help make things easier if you can find it. Should the PC not decide to boot and you want to get back to stable again.

    So the motherboard is really doing it's own adjustments on everything else with just a DRAM frequency change.

    This is with DRAM frequency set to auto/default:

    I tell you what you could do, to sort of find out what is performing best is download AIDA64 Download Version 7.20.6802 (guru3d.com)
    Its a limited free version but it will bench you with a score you can work with.
    I messed around with the speed settings on my rig and the score dropped by about 1K.
    Needless to say I soon put it back. :)

    From HWinfo:

    From CPU-Z:

    pre memtest86+ results:

    It should be stable anyway though.

    Bah, went ahead an enabled XMP since I took the other two RAM sticks out and I saw this video:



    Since I like MMORPG's and like New World also.

    BTW there are only a few games at the mo that insist on using more than 16Gb eg Hogwarts legacy.
    But there are also plenty right up there on 16Gb like NFS underground.
    Anyway looking forward to when you get the 7800XT
    Unless you changed your mind. :)

    Yeah, the two 8GB sticks. I was running two 16GB and two 8GB sticks.

    It allows me to run games at a higher resolution while maintaining playable frame rates.

    The real reason I think I'm keeping the 1080p screens for a while because with VSR the only downside is ppi since I'm using a 27 inch monitor and 32 inch TV. I can set it to 6k VSR and set the games internal render/scaling resolution down to even 45% and it's still better then native.

    Again, not only that, I saw 1440p monitors in the store, wasn't impressed.

    Yeah boy, that's a good speed. I am at 3600 18,20,20
    So you may be able to go a little deeper. but watch the voltage you may need 1.4 volts instead of 1.35.
    My ram will not go to 16,19,19. too many faults generated.. :)
    EDIT: if you are lucky your bios will move the voltage range on its own. ;)

    It's XMP. I manually set the voltage and tRC though. Voltage being on auto looked off and the tRC was at 83 instead of 64.

    Jeez only a couple years ago people were "It killz CPU'z cuz IMc!"

    Yeah, its clear mobo bios have come on leaps and bounds with AM4, especially for the 5800X3D
    I have had my B450 for a good 4 years now and when I first got it, I got the worst O/C ram by reputation. I still have that RAM but because of much evolved bios its now a very good overclocking RAM.
    Which I stumbled on in your thread so TY for raising my curiosity.
    So if you look at my bios settings.
    The: Memory try it. will reveal a whole list of XMP speeds. So you may want to try a little faster. Like I said my ram will not go to 16,19,19.
