    Re: AMD AM4 Overclocking and Tuning Thread

    I'm giving the links straight to Hwbot seen that I cannot upload pictures. I finally got some proper ram which works for Ryzen... Absolutely love this motherboard. Nobody seem to be able to tell me why everybody is clocking these chips using P-state. I seriously just punch in the numbers a clock it where it will stay the entire time during benching. For everyday use I run it at 3.8ghz, can probably do 3.9 maybe even 4ghz but I'm not convinced the temp reading are all that accurate.

    If only the mounting for the Dragon F1 Gemini fitted AM4 I would have done some DICE clocking today, but it appears I may need to modify or make my own bracket to fit it.

    Correction, I just did some measurements and saw that the Dragon F1 Gemini pot will fit the Asus Crosshair VI Hero motherboard. Well done Asus, I love the fact that they actually designed the board so that coolers with AM3 brackets will fit.

    It is a tad high peak VCore, indeed.

    I can get the rig to run and do a quick bench at 4.115GHz on 1.488V, but I always run prime95 for at least 30min to determine it the OC is really stable and if I'm okay with the heat and noise...

    And I'm not getting that stability on my little ITX Ryzen rig (see below pic), with those clocks and volts.

    It could be because I got the cheapest AIO cooler I could find that fitted AM4, sitting in a crazy-small chassis with poor airflow, using the cheapest RAM 'decent' I could find... But more than likely, it could be the ASRock AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac MoBo's 3 phase VRM design....
    I'll find a sweet-spot OC until I can get a new PSU & Chassis (Thinking, Seasonic Platinum 650W PSU with a Sugo SG13 chassis)

    Re: AMD AM4 Overclocking and Tuning Thread

    Okay, I went DICE (a.k.a. Dry Ice) but before I post my Hwbot submissions I'd like to share some thoughts.

    First of all I'd like to say thank you Asus, as the Crosshair VI Hero was made to work with any AM3 cooler. This meant that my trusty old H100i cooler fitted without any issues, but more so it meat that my Kingpin Dragon F1 Gemini pot for extreme cooling fitted without an issue. Let me put it as I saw it. When I measured the AMD grouping for the bolts to fasten the cooler I measured on the motherboard and saw that it also had the holes for exactly in the same area for an AM3 cooler, sweet the Dragon F1 Gemini will fit. And it did.

    Unfortunately the memory controller at -60 to -67C struggles with high speed memory so I had to settle for DDR4 2400 instead of the usual DDR4 3200. Had to play around with timings to get some okay results.

    Having checked the extreme oc thread for AM4 I also noticed that changing the BCLK from 100 to 141 made very little difference, but I'll admit that I am still learning so my views and thoughts may be skewed.

    Now for the results.

    Geekbench3 Multicore

    Unfortunately I did not run any 3d benchmarks and those I did was pretty bad as the PCI-e under extreme cold did not want to play at full speed. Some minor issues but with my next run I should have these things sorted.
