Is the ROG STRIX B650E-F motherboard massively inconsistent or is it just me?

Level 7

Moved from AM4 to AM5 early last year and I've had non-stop issues with this ****** board, memory issues and BSOD's that shouldn't be happening, including very long boot times. I recently tried going from 32 gigs to 64 of DDR5 and it's been another hellish, inconsistent experience. 4 sticks of ram at 6000mhz clock speed seemed to confuse the board so bad that it'd often simply not boot and get stuck indefinitely.

Is this a universal experience with this board? I can't see anyone saying nice things about this ****** board online. Is it worth moving to a new MOBO? Thanks.

I would consider curbing the swears and doing a little research. 4 DIMMs at 6000MT is not going to happen on this platform. Moreover, there aren't any kits validated in this density for this reason.



Given you've mentioned "adding" additional memory; combining and mixing memory kits isn't supported by memory or motherboard vendors. If you combine memory kits, the overclocked settings in which the kit is validated for XMP/EXPO are no longer valid. Purchase a single kit validated for the density and frequency you are trying to run. This is because memory vendors bin and validate the memory kit in the density in which it is sold. Whether we combine a kit with the same part number, frequency, timings or voltage the advice remains the same.

Using it for about 2 months with 64 GB of 6000 MT/s memory (2 sticks, GSkill F5-6000J3040G32GX2-TZ5NR using EXPO profile) and had no problems with it.  My CPU is Ryzen 5 7600. But I use GNU/Linux (openSUSE Tumbleweed) on the system.
