have you tried it with just one stick yet?
I have tried several combinations of slots A2 - B2, A1 - B1 etc etc but not one stick, i cant imagine that being an issue getting 3200 rated quality RAM to run at its stock speed but il give it a try anyway. Im starting to think its the Bios as im pretty sure on the boards original Bios it had both sticks running at 3300 before i flashed it to the latest.
With all the issue getting to run beyond 2133, would guess it is the ram sticks themselves. Had a pair that yes would run 3200 no problem but absolutely nothing above that no matter what and they were Samsung B-die 3200 CL14 Trident-Z sticks. They are still 3200 only sticks to this day.
But these are 3200 sticks that run at 2133.
Was just giving an example of the sticks themselves being the issue. Still think it is the sticks which would mean that no bios or settings will solve the issue. That being said, has it been tried,
Load optimized defaults from within the bios, save and exit
boot back into bios and only set ram frequency to 3200 and RAM voltage to 1.35 or up to 1.38v, save and exit
see if it boots and then proceeds to desktop in Windows
If this has been tried and failed along with all the other options that were tried, return the sticks for another pair. If you still have the intel rig and it supports DDR4, see if they will run at 3200 in that rig. If they do not...it is the sticks for sure.
EDIT: according to the ASRock memory QVL listing they are Samsung B-die
As stated below, revert back to the previous bios 1003ABBA and see if issue still exists
how about try to downgrade to 1003abba bios or early and try the ram there at least you can remove the agesa problem from discussion
I think that may be my next step, ive tried 1 stick and its the same outcome
Is there any other speed you can set?
2933 for example or start with 2400?
And please note vSOC changes automatically when higher than 2666/2933 (I think yours too) from 0.9 to 1.1v. So after changing from 2133mhz to 3200mhz I had to manually fix the voltage (SOC) to 1.1 and reboot, then go to BIOS and set my values, otherwise it wouldn't boot when leaving it on AUTO.
Probably this is it.
Il give that a try now, thanks
Did it work?
Its Hynix IC's. On an X370, and you're wondering why youre having issues?
X370= Samsung B-Die or go home.
There is your solution.
how about im using hynix cjr on my x370 gaming pro carbon with r5 3600 with my ram at 3800 mhz and cl16-21-16-21-36
stop speaking nonsense.
Well CJR is way better than AFR or MFR and C16 3200 likely AFR
But ... you know its about an X570, not about X370? OP hasn't named the CPU yet, but when speaking of a "new build" and stating X570 in the title, I really don't know how you understood X370.
it might sound stupid to try, but i would try reseating your cpu, i remember having a similar problem with my 2700x and a b350, i reseated the cpu and could clock my ram properly
Ok guys, the rig is 100% stable, the CPU runs stable at 4.5ghz on all 8 cores no issue (3800x), i set the voltages manually as 368SX mentioned above, that allowed me to bump up the mem speed within windows but not the Bios, im now convinced this is a Bios issue so over the weekend il flash back to the last Bios and see how that is. I game at 4k with a 1080Ti at 2150mhz so im not losing any noticeable performance by running my RAM slower until i either sus out the issue or identify its deffo the bios.
Did you run Testmem5 0.12 or Memtest? Even if it seems stable it may not be. I manually set 20 runs / cycles on Testmem5, this gives a good feeling of stability and the test will take about 2 hours. Errors never showed later than on the 15th run, most under 5. But these 3 or 4 times with errors at run 10+ lead to sudden game quits every few days.
Memtest gives me similar results, so I found this Testmem 5 a good app and a good sweetspot between time to invest and outcome.
Just my view, others may disagree.
But good to hear it helped. Have fun.
True but he should still be able to run at it's rated 3200 Ram speed even if it is unstable, a couple of weeks ago i had to RMA my ASUS Strix-F X570 motherboard because there was a faulty DIMM channel which i would have not known if it was not that i bought another pair of Samsung B-die 8GB Sticks. The system was unstable and ran Memtest and within 5 mins errors started to appear this only occurred on DIMM slots A2 and B2 at first i thought it was the memory but then had to piss about changing slots and use my known good DIMM's which was also generating errors and the new sticks worked fine in A1 and B1. Also the RGB on the motherboard I/O shield didn't work either i guess a lapse in QA?
Ironically my ASUS Strix motherboard some of the memory timings don't appear to take effect either like setting CMD to 2T, it refuses to do it. Have to use Ryzen Master to do it. It might also be why Ryzen memory calculator doesn't work for me as i suspect there are other timings not being applied which causes the system to fail to post. Which i know the memory is capable of doing as it worked at 3600MTs CL14 on my ASUS Crosshair 6 Hero and Ryzen 1700.
