Guess that's gonna happen, cuz it tells me it's not a proper BIOS.
Even with flashback? where you flash it without the pc being turned on, the file just needs to be named correctly and then put on usb thumb drive formatted in fat and then put in usb flashback port.
I'm not sure what your exact ram modules are, looking at the memory support list for your mobo lists these as supported when combined with a ryzen 5000 series cpu.
Found here > https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-b550-e-gaming-model/helpdesk_qvl_memory/
The kit i have is HX436C17FB3K4/32.
I may just return the memory, ditch one CPU Fan and get a G.Skill B-die kit instead, which was the original plan to begin with.
And go with 2x 16GB instead of 4x8GB in favour of stability.
Well, that's certainly one choice.. I went with G.Skill memory for my new build too, I'm not sure if it's B-die though but the modules are made by Samsung which I was not expecting.
B-die finder is kinda handy. https://benzhaomin.github.io/bdiefinder/
So you went with 3200 then.
Yes, didn't want to overclock, I usually just look at the spec sheets and pick what is suggests as the default speed, I'm boring haha.
Well, i don't blame you, i just need something that works as well.
Just look through the memory support list for your motherboard and pick based on that, that way at least you know it's been tested and functions at the specified speed and timing, also make sure ryzen 5000 series cpu is selected when going through the list.
F4-3200C16Q-32GTZN-G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd.
This may be something then, and not costing 350 bucks, but 220 and it's on the QVL list for my B550-E Gaming on Ryzen 5000.
Looks good to me, and yep I'm seeing it on the qvl list too.
Because you said you wanted two 16gb sticks I was going to suggest the "G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz CL16 DDR4" F4-3200C16D-32GTZR.... but turns out it's not on the qvl list... doh.. xD
Ye, and i also have to go by what's available in my country.
All the G.Skill 3200 2x16 kits on QVL list are 14-14-14 which costs over 300 bucks, that's just too much for the little performance gain. The three 3600 2x16 kits are odd timing numbers, which Ryzen rounds off above.
Btw, this what MemTest86 shows so far, i have obviously no idea what i'm looking at. Is it the Memory or the CPU causing the issue? Either way, i will let it fully finish for proof when i return whatever is needed to the shop i ordered from.
@TheDeeGee I don't know anything about MemTest86 sorry, someone else will have to answer this.
Currently testing 1 module in each slot, to rule out the dimm slots.
Even with 4 modules at BIOS Optimized Defaults (2400 MHz) showed errors.
Well 1 sick errors out atleast, and another in the same slot doesn't, so the kit is going back to the store.
I will go with this, my motherboard shows up in the QVL list for this as well:
F4-3200C16D-32GTZN-G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd.
I have the 3600 kit .. 2x 8gb
The ones on the qvl list are the CL14 sticks for the 5000 series cpu, the ones you have linked too are the CL16 sticks which are not on the list when 5000 series cpu is selected on the qvl list.
When selecting 3000 series cpu then the set you selected shows on the qvl list, just felt I'd better point it out.
It's on the QVL list on G.Skill though for the B550-E Gaming.
They already shipped within 15 minutes of ordering, i have faith it works.
Anyways, how do i go about testing the curve optimizer? Do i just add a minus value and run cinebench r20 to see if it crashes?
Cuz i'm at Negative 10 now and it still works fine. I also disabled PBO Limits.
Looks like ASUS is coming out with AGESA 18.104.22.168 over the next fortnight.
with Ryzen updating your BIOS will become a hobby......
Yeah, and replacing memory
Anyways, my new kit will arrive tomorrow.
I keep getting this on my crappy HyperX kit:
Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Bus/Interconnect Error
Processor APIC ID: 0 (this one changes)
Even when doing NOTHING.
