CPU/RAM Overclocking Help

Specs:
Corsair CX600
ASRock AB350 Pro4 (3.0 bios version)
Ryzen r7 1700 Stock Cooler
Corsair Vengeance 16gb 3200mhz

So I'm fairly new to overclocking CPU and RAM and I'm having a rough time getting some decent speeds both RAM and CPU.

With some guidance from the BuildaPC subreddit discord I was able to get my 1700 to 3.75GHz at 1.35v with some stability issues namely the temps hanging around the low 70s then all of the sudden ramping up again and shutting off at about 85C. (Tested with P95 for about 7-10 mins)

My ram on the other hand I tried bumping to 2800Mhz so far and it booted without any issues but after a little while gave me a bsod. I'm currently running a Memtest86 and so far I've only gotten 7 errors in test 9 (test finished).

The way I overclocked my ram was by turning on the XMP 2.0 Profile 1 and setting the memory speed to 2800 without tinkering with any of the other options.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm having a very rough time trying to figure all of these things out.

  1. Take a grab from CPU-z CPU tab while running a stress test mate , using xmp for 2800 is probably auto overclocking the fsb too (2800 is impossible native on the stock 200mhz bus speed)

    Its also probably running 2666 timings when looser 2933 timings would be more stable.

    Sorry, I'm really not very familiar with the terminology but I'll run a P95 test and send a screenshot of CPU-Z.

    Thanks for the help.

    This is a screenshot early in the test, for some reason setting the ram speed to 2666 overwrites my Ryzen Master settings and making me reset my computer if I want to apply the 3.75GHz profile which in turn makes the ram speeds what is shown by task manager in the screenshot.

    Any idea how I could fix the issue?

  5. Really mate you need to be doing this all in bios not with ryzen master.


    How confident are you using the BIOS itself ??

    I'll do whatever I have to at this point, the desperation is increasing by the minute.
