Overclocking G.Skill Trident Z RGB 3000MHz CL16 with Asus Rog Strix B350-F

Hello,

in my default setup my RAM runs at 2133 MHz. I would like to get it to 2933MHz. Since I have no experience in overclocking/volting I would appreciate a step by step guide :)

Thanks,
-Luca

  1. Look for DOCP in the bios enable this and look for the 2933mhz option/profile. It should set the voltage and timings for you

    If I select DOCP everything is fine, but as soon as I change the MHz to anything higher than 2133 my system does not boot anymore...

    I read through it but did not really come to a conclusion, I also update BIOS again (0902), still not working...

  5. try stock cpu=no OC.....Only use TWO Dimm slots(very important, using 4x8gb or higher will not be as fast, and many times not work at rated OC speed. bcs ryzen 4 dimm restrictions, only 4x4GB rams will have simular speeds)...Set Ram 2966hz, - 19-18-18-18-50-60, set DRAM voltage to 1.4V, setDram VBOOT to 1.4V....no good..try 2633...etc. still no good..dont worry find the lowest timing at 2166hz or higher ..(try low timing like 12-12-12-12-25-50)....test like prime95, Cinebench15......and wait for bios update if you really want the 2966hz... I cant get my 3200tridentZ to go past 2966hz

    Some Memory based on SK Hynix Dual Rank memory will not overclock pass DDR4-2666Mhz even with very loose timings and lots of voltage at the time of this writing. There seems to be a compatibility issue at this moment in time with Dual Rank memory and motherboard Bios , mainly subtiming adjustments , secondary , tertiary timings and other loose ends and kinks that AMD needs to figure out. As per my own hands on testing and findings this is what i found out: Your maximum overclock on SK Hynix Dual Rank memory 2x8GB kit will end up at 2666Mhz Cas 18. Hynix memory do not like a lot of latency , timing , voltages and tweaking changes.

    I have tried many combinations on my Hynix ram for testing purposes. The best i can do is 2666 at 18-18-18-36 2T. I have left Cas alone at 18 as anything lower does not work at all. I cannot get any subtimings changed , as soon as i start to do baby steps starting to tight latencies it's a no go for my ram. Tried 18-17-18-36 did not boot , it hangs. tried 18-18-17-36 same , 18-17-17-36 same and so on ... Tested for 3 days and many hours and it is what it is.

    AMD Officially Supports This Memory Configurations:
    Dual Channel/Dual-Rank/4 DIMM: 1866MHz
    Dual Channel/Single-Rank/4 DIMM: 2133MHz
    Dual Channel/Dual-Rank/2 DIMM: 2400MHz
    Dual Channel/Single-Rank/2 DIMM: 2667 MHz

    1. Try even numbers first when you overclock your memory , example 14-14-14 or 15-15-15 or 18-18-18 and so on ... , also give it a try at 1T first for best performance or 2T Command Rate for compatibility , 1T is always faster but 2T helps with compatibility and stabilize high Mhz.

    2. Adjust your DRAM Boot voltage to be equal to your DRAM voltage , example DRMA voltage 1.35v and DRAM Boot voltage at 1.35v
    (I Recommend no higher than 1.40v )

    3. Test VDDSOC voltages from 1.0v to 1.20v ( Recommend no higher than 1.20v )

    4. If your motherboard have it's own clock generator for BCLK overclocking ( Only found on Asus Crosshair VI Hero , ASRock Taichi , ASRock Fatal1ty X370 Professional Gaming and GIGABYTE GA-AX370-Gaming K7 ) , do not go pass 104.85 BCLK for memory overclocking as it will drop the speed of pci-express 3.0 to pci-express 2.0 speeds , once you start going higher and higher you start losing usb ports and things get wonky and unstable for 24/7 usage.

    5. Higher Speed Mhz with tight timings ( example - DDR4-3466 ) at 14-14-14-28 ) is always better than Lower Speeds Mhz and tight timings ( example - DDR4-2666 at 12-12-12-26 ) as the data infinity fabric and north bridge benefits the most from higher Mhz. The higher the memory Clocks Speeds/Mhz the better it is for the system performance overall. So , shoot for the highest memory clocks you can get and the tight timings you can get.

    6. Disable xmp and try again.
