CH7 + 2700X Overclocking

Today i try (again) OC this board/Cpu...

My system:
2700X watercooled
Crossaihero VII + Seasonic 620
8+8 Flarex from Gskill

I had almost everything on Auto except memory to 3200 manually...
Try put this at 4300....errors
Read stick post, change about 50 parametrs,put it at 4100mhz....errors on Sandra, or at least, worst results than stock on Cinebench...

In resume:
I OC since 300A Celeron, and i was never disappointed like now, specially this board. Oc this thing even gives worse results than sotck...:confused:
I need a degree on rocket scientist just to make basic supposedly OC on this combination.....i already know this cpu doesn't OC like my previous Q6600 G0, or AMD 2700 M, but franquely this is a complete disappointment....

Such expensive board and memory's,,,,,for almost nothing. What happen to good old school OC?

Anyway, i have this to basically stock, and choose Level 3 i think to OC....what gives me almost 4000MHZ (worse than my Q6600 G0 10 years ago)...

Sorry the testament, but this combination is (now i recognise) a waste of money....or, at least for me, too much to absorve.....

Anyway.....after complaint so much, can someone give some clues to put this thing at 4200Mhz and better than stock?

I came here to say the same.....whatever i do i can`t create a text....and now i remember o did try before...

F12 give-me a corrupt file....but sometimes it happens....
Also, it seems i cant change drive letter or explore drivers.....

Thank you very much!

Thank you very much. Little by little, im starting getting the bases for this....i wish only have more time to build step-by-step profiles and stress them..

I also have the same doubts of the ser above: How to pass to text my profiles? It would beneficial everybody and help me better to improve one or other option!

Thank you all!:cool:

P.S. At this moment i think my configurations are stable, except i cant low Vcore with multiplier at 42.....
On my old PK5-E Board, there was a option to turn off/on thisllll

Strange, don't know what to say TBH.

I'm using a FAT32 formatted 16GB USB stick. Same stick as I use for UEFI flashback.

To dump settings txt or cmo file I can use any USB port, may that be rear IO or ones on case via headers. Only when I use Flashback must the USB stick be in USB port marked as BIOS on rear IO.

I can also browse/select which folder I would like to save the settings txt or cmo file to.

Hi.
Maybe because my FAT32 usb drive is always on USB port marked as BIOS on rear IO....

Today i can`t, but tomorow, i will try to use a normal port usb for this.

Thank you for the clues!

I remember something in the manual about some USB3 (larger) drives potentially having issues. They recommend using USB2 drives. In any case, maybe just try a different flash drive.

I use a 512MB USB2 flash drive for saving screenshots, documents, or flashing BIOS/UEFI, and I haven't had problems. I have also used both the motherboard USB ports as well as the ones on the case / USB header.

Awesome post, @gupsterg ! Where is that spreadsheet screenshot from, with the read/write/copy rates and memory latency at different RAM MHz?

I wish there were a way to compare results in Windows and linux with a standardized tool. In linux, Intel's MLC gives me 68-72 ms latency for my 2 X 16GB @ 3200 MHz DOCP. But MLC reports reads at ~44GB/s and GSAT reports copy at ~25GB/s. So it's not clear which measurements can be compared.

No problem, glad it was helpful 🙂 .

The excel spreadsheet is linked in post 32, "The image below is posted in this link" the link takes you to OCN post which has a ZIP with it.

From what jpmboy said to me year or so ago, the speed data in GSAT is not very accurate. There is a Ryzen Memory thread on OCN, IIRC within the first 10 pages there is that info.

I'd think that latency figure using Intel MLC is very similar to what AIDA64 would show. I'll run AIDA64 / Intel MLC in WinOS and then Intel MLC in Linux Mint on my rig and share data 🙂 .

So i have a FAT32 32G memory.

I create a folder on it, i could see it on UEFI, choose it, and save it.

On W10, there isnt nothing inside..f:(c

Gonna try other pen no so big....this is weird....

P.S. I also use it to flash UEFI and no problems...

Hey gupsterg-finally managed to save my bios settings to USB. The culprit was my 128GB USB 3.0 USB stick formatted to exFat. I don't think the BIOS likes that. I used an older Fat32 formated 8GB stick and it worked.

I've attached my latest settings, currently using The Stilt's 3200Mhz Fast setting but added a bit more DRAM Voltage to 1.355. Please have a look and let me know if you see anything that can be improved to boost performance. Also I haven't been able to get to a stable 3466Mhz but not sure if it's going to be much better than the 3200 Fast setting.

Here's my BIOS settings text file:

@gupsterg Thanks! It's great how well you document your tests.

Comparing your 3200MHz MLC runs with mine (Image), my latency is lower and yet so is the bandwidth. For the Loaded Latencies section, my results start with higher latency and lower bandwidth than yours, but end with lower latency and similar bandwidth. Any ideas on how to interpret these results?

@Mordorr
That is weird... Yeah, try another USB drive.

What file did you save on it in UEFI? Could Win10 be hiding it due to file extensions? Maybe check it in linux?

@arvinz Glad you got it working. Formatting and USB size/type seem to matter.
