wuchzael is reading into overclocking


Short response... I tried a MSI X370 Carbon now and it was able to get 2933MHz CL16 and (after several POST loops) 3200MHz CL18 on my Ram (F4-3200C14D-GTZR). Fun fact: The Biostar board got a higher cinebench score with 2133MHz ram then the Carbon with 2933MHz Ram

After all I did not keep the MSI Board since it was not that good for CPU overclocking (needs much more voltage for same frequencies) and it is not as good equipped as the GT7. Did not expect that to be honest!

But... I just found out my particular 1600X was one of the first ever produced Ryzen 5 CPUs and that it has the so called SegFault Error (it crashes randomly while compiling code under Linux). AMD told me to send it back and that I'll get a replacement. I wonder if the newer CPU will work better with higher clocked Ram (as some other users mentioned in different forums).

I will let you know as soon as the new CPU arrives.
