Help with my g skill f4-3600c18q

Level 7
I posted in the hardware support forum by mistake. Sorry

Hello everyone,

Hope everyone is doing well and safe.

I need some help with these RAM.

This build was my first ever so when it booted up the first time and ran butter smooth, I was quite happy.

I use this machine to do 3D work and GPU rendering in Cinema 4D and Houdini, I play bannerlord II sometimes but that's about it. So, 90% of the time, this machine is for work, not games.

One day I was checking task manager and saw that my memory was running 2133, I started googling and found out that I have to use DOCP thing on my motherboard.

So I go into bios and turn on DOCP and change to 3600 and FLK to 1800 and everything else in AUTO, it booted into Windows but in like 5 minutes, it had to restart because windows detected something. I google a little more and use DRAM checker thing and manually typed in timing according to that checker.

Then it won't even post, I had to clear CMOS to take the BIOS to where it was before, and being the first time builder, that experience was quite horrible lol

Honestly, I don't care if it runs at 2133 because it's pretty damn fast already but I'd still like to get what I paid for or...would I even benefit from my RAM running at 3600 if I'm not a gamer?

The error code I was getting was first F9 and when I did restart, it was 22. I left the machine on for quite some time with error code 22 but nothing happened other than black sceen.

I don't know if it matters but this is what I have in my machine.

2 x Samsung m.2 drives(1TB each)
1 SSD(2TB)
750 Evga PSU
ASUS Rog strix x-570e gaming BIOS 1407 at the time overclocking the RAM.

If anyone has identical set up, would you please let me know how to set my RAM up?

I realize how lengthy this post is lol Sorry!

You may want to tune the SOC voltage manually. Even if not gaming, Ryzen benefits from higher memory speeds in certain workloads.

Try setting a manual SOC voltage of between 1v and 1.05v. You can leave FCLK in auto.
