Rented is reading into overclocking

Hi guys,

First time post. Hi everyone

I initially had the following setup:
Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 air cooled @ 1.32v (seems like a decent overclocker)
Gigabyte B350 Gaming 3
Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 5.39

I got this memory up to 2933 on 15-17-17-36 timings. I was quite happy with that, but this is SK Hynix RAM it seemed that the internet was saying that you need Samsung RAM for Ryzen.

Also, not being 100% happy with the gigabyte board, I did a replacement buy to the following:

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 air cooled @ 1.32v
ASUS ROG Strix B350-F Gaming
G.Skill F4-3200C14D-16GFX

Using the XMP/D.O.C.P settings, or manually entering them with loosened timings, using 1.35v and 60Ohms, etc etc, I can still get the Corsair memory up to 2933, but the G.Skill will not boot execpt on SPD rate of 2400MHz.

I can't figure this out. Both are on the 3200MHz support list, but why would one kit pre-dating Ryzen be faster than a Ryzen specific kit?

I'd actually be happy if I could get it to 2933MHz on the XMP timings.

EDIT: to head off likely questions: using A2-B2 slots, VCore SOC is ~1.1v and have tried up past 1.2v with no change.


Oh and PS: I haven't enjoyed playing about with hardware for a long long time. Thanks AMD for making a comeback.

Hi guys,

I just noted something else. Several timings between channel A and B on the G.Skill set are different, as being set by the motherboard. I don't understand these settings so I have left them on auto.

Things like the Trdwr_SM setting.

This is not happening with the Corsair set. Do I have a potential problem with the memory here?

That is normal, some timings vary depending on position. AUTO should be fine
