ROG STRIX b350 & Ripjaws V 3200 16gb. Stuck at 3066

Good day everyone ! So I got stuck at 3066Mhz at 1.37v. Even at 1.39v I couldn't achieve 3200Mhz. Is it a good idea to go further ? Or should I change timings from 16-18-18-38 somehow ?

  1. if you can, check if there is a bios update for the board.

    but i wouldn't really worry, as 2966-3000Mhz is the sweet spot for ryzen anyway, not losing too much there.

    The board is on the latest version of bios ) Forgot to mention that )
    Thank you

  3. did you try the ram ocing profile the board has?
    usually the safest way.


    what ram is it? in the list of approved ram from asus?
    is it 4x4gb or 2x8?
    use something like cpuz and read-out what chips are on it...

    I'v tried the d.o.c.p profile settings. 3200Mhz at 1.35v and 16-18-18-38, but I couldn't boot. I'm now running at 3066Mhz and 1.37v).
    It's 2x8gb. There is a 2x4gb version on my ram in the ASUS qvl (F4-3200C16D-8GVKB) here

    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/SocketAM4/STRIX_B350-F_GAMING/ROG_STRIX_B350-F_GAMING_Memory_QVL_20170519.pdf?_ga=2.181192423.1182970086.1510325031-1626251182.1510122625

    I thought that there will be not much of a difference between them two , so I took the 2x8gb version , because it was the only "ok" 2666 to 3200 kit of ram in my county :)

    I cant find what chips are on it :( Could you please explain ? Googleing couldn't help me neither :(

    Btw. I'm on the d.o.c.p profile atm , but I have lowered the speed and the voltage to 3066 and 1.37 respectively

  5. At work right now, so just go to guru3d.com or google cpu-z.
    It can read out the brand, since some chips don't work perfectly with ryzen...
    But it might just be that the sticks you have are DualSided (vs the 4gb stick being single sided), that causes trouble.

    So here is all the information about the memory from the CPU-Z )


    slot 3 is the same as slot 1 in the SPD tab

  7. cas 16 is hynix a or samsung e so Id say you've done ok at 3066,A lot of people are still stuck at 2666 with those sticks.

    Oh. It is nice then :O What ram test software would you suggest to test the stability of the memory ? I had some failed boots on 1.365v (but I could boot some times), but I swiched back to 1.37v. Played Forza motorsport 2 and had no porblems with the game and the system in general.

  9. Its single rank, so that shouldn't be an issue.
    Go to bios and change CR to 2T (from 1).
    See if that helps.
    Try the next lower clock to see if you can lower voktage a bit.

    Use memtest86+ (not just memtest, thats different), burn to cd and boot from it.
    Run 2 full test and see if it finishes without errors.
    Then run test 5/6/7 a few times each, those are more sensitive to oc..

    I have changed my cmd2t from Auto to 2T , but CPU-Z still shows me that it's 1T

  11. Unplug power cord.
    Press powet button on casr for 10s to discharge residue current.
    Remove cmos battery for 20s, put back in. Plug cord in and boot into bios.

    Load defaults, reboot and then change bios settings again.

    Good day ) Sorry , I had no access to the Internet a couple of days ) I'll try it and edit the comment later )

    Edit* Nope. I couldn't make it work, but I could lower the timings to 14-16-16-36 with 2933 :(
    Reply to cllaid
  13. run the lower timings @2933. plenty enough for ryzen.
    Reply to fry178
  14. 2933 at 1t with those timings is incredibly good mate.

    I wouldn't be in the slightest bit disappointed with that.
    Reply to madmatt30
  15. The difference between 2933Mhz and 3200Mhz is not that high to be dissapointed ) Thanks everyone who was helping me. At least I got my ram stable with lower timings :)
