I am running a 1700 @ stock and ram @ 2933 on a X370 Gaming Pro Carbon (non-AC)

But on the latest BOIS on MSI's site (7A31v17), no matter what clockspeed or voltage I change too the OC just won't apply and as soon as I go into windows it is running at stock speeds.

Is this solved in the BETA BIOS or will I have to deal with it?

Thanks ;)

EDIT: Is there any chance I can change my display name to MattBoxer?

Thanks Again!

I would start by trying a beta bios.

Changed your account name. login/password remain the same.

Funnily enough, the board behaves the same even with the latest BETA BIOS. CPU in BIOS set to 3.85 and voltage @ 1.325 and as soon as I get into windows it has set itself back to 3GHz.

Welp it was worth a try.

EDIT: the BETA I tried was V1.82.

Hi..I have a problem . I have ryzen 3 1300x with last bios update 1.5 on b350-bazooka . Every time when I try to use game boost or I manually OC CPU with any value it shows 1.55 mhz to me in bios and windows . I have win 10 64 bit ..And another problem is that when I manually set ram latency in bios they won't apply . For my ram -> ADATA XPG Z1 Gold 8GB DDR4 3000MHz CL16 Dual Channel Kit  works only xmp profile 1 wich is 2633 but xmp profile 2 won't work , bios automatically set 17-17-17-17-39 latency and I can't change them with or without XMP profile active .
Sry for my bad language , I hope you can understand what I mean . W8ing for reply ,thx !

This is not a support thread. Make your own thread in the motherboard section like everyone else does.

So I had to redo my memory OC as it was not stable at HCI Memtest.
Its now at:
2933 Mhz
17-18-18-38 2T
V 1.35
Cpu SOC V 1.10

For my Ryzen 1500x, this the sweetspot im comfortable 24/7
3.9 ghz with V 1.3125
It's a no go at 4.0 ghz with V1.375 as it crashes in OCCT. Not comfortable going above this voltage.

Now on to gaming :biggthumbsup:






CPU: Ryzen 5 1500x
Motherboard: MSI B350M Bazooka 1.5v bios
RAM: Avexir Core Series Red DDR4

Thanks,

Using this guide I was able to set my OC to 3.9 and ram to 2933.
I stress test and bench mark the settings and temp remained under 68 degrees.
But when I shut down the PC, the pc cycle a couple of times and when I log in, the clock speeds revert back to default via CPU-Z and Ryzen master. 
But in the BIOS it shows the OC speed at the top of 3.9 but the ram goes back to 2133. I check the OC settings and the OC voltage,etc is set correctly, but in Windows it shows 3.6 instead of 3.9?
Is there another setting that needs to be set in the BIOS?
I've updated the BIOS to the latest one.

I'm using a MSI gaming plus b350
Ryzen 5 1600x

Sounds like the RAM isn't quite able to do that frequency properly during a reboot. Have you changed your NB/SoC voltage at all? What about DRAM voltage? CLDO_VDDP?

Here is a screen shot of what it is doing:

Here is what the BIOS is showing:
[attachthumb=1]

And here what WIndows is showing:
[attachthumb=2]


And everytime I shut down the computer, it goes thru a power cycle about 5 times and the OC revert back when I login to WIndows.

I've just reinstalled Windows and I will use the chipset driver from MSI site and not the one from the AMD site and see if that will change anything.

Any other suggestions?

You are right again, it is something with the RAM:
I think I have figured it out. It occurred when I OC my Ram. When I only OC the CPU and leave all the RAM on Auto the OC of the CPU appears correctly. Only when I OC the RAM this occurred. The Ram I have is Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) , even when I input the timings or set it to the Profile of 2800 , it reboots about 5 times and revert not only the CPU but the Ram instead, it goes to 2133, any idea of what this could be and what setting may be causing this?

Thanks.

Please re-read what I said above. I mean, I can't really make it any clearer. Look at the guide too. You've still got your NB/SoC voltage as Auto, and your DRAM voltage is still the standard 1.35V. NB/SoC could go up to 1.15V safely, maybe 1.2V, while DRAM could go as high as 1.45V safely. Both of those could help increase the stability and fix the issues you're having.
Which, if you had actually read the guide, you'd find that information. Which is the entire point of the guide.

Try to overclock in bios instead of Ryzen Master. Its is just better in the bios IMO.

Please post your memory brand and spec.

A Cpu nb/soc starting from 1.05v up will really help in stabilizing the memory overclock.

memory timings is a factor too.

Just got to the Ryzen ship recently coming from the legendary i5-2500k gaming horse. The experience of getting things to run properly (and I have built more than 20 computer for fam and friends) took me a grueling 3 days until I finally was able to resolve the random system freezing in windows. I thought it was a Ram issue or CPU issue so I played with all the voltages that I could play with as well as using 1 ram stick instead of 2 on all DIMM slots to no avail. I almost regret upgrading if I wasn't able to resolve the issue which was fixed by a clean install of windows 10 creators update instead of the clean regular windows 10. Weird issue and I even tried downgrading bios 2 times. Anyway here are my results so far.

CPU: Ryzen 5 1600
  • 3.8GHZ (Auto core voltage since older bios prior to AGESA update is bugged and makes multiplier stuck at 15.5 when voltage is manually set)
  • Currently at 1.25V and stable on prime95 and PUBG + Stream. Wow, isn't the voltage at this speed lower than average? :) I'll push it further on the next weekend when I revert back to the latest bios.

Mobo: B350 Gaming Plus
  • One of the best if not the best budget B350 boards out there. Also, blends well with red color scheme :) 

RAM: G.SKill Ripjaws V F4-3200C16D-16GVKB (8GBx2)
  • (Non-QVL I just took a gamble and it paid out considering how expensive Flare-X 3200 costs)
  • Won't post on XMP or manual 3200mhz.. Didn't try 1.4+ voltage yet and I don't think I have the balls to do.
  • Currently Running at 2933 stable with 16-18-18-38-63-1T 1.344 voltage
  • Will try some tweaking after reverting to latest bios. I was able to run 3066MHZ when I first installed the sticks up until I thought my ram was causing the windows freeze issue.

In summary, My 3 days weekend and holiday I spent almost trying to fix the random freeze issue and just spent 4 hours setting the stable RAM/CPU overclocks above. Honestly almost regret it.. just almost :) My next weekend will be exciting as I try to push the CPU and Ram to the limit. RYZEEEEEEN POOWWAAAHH!!!

Confirmed 3066 is rock stable under 1.344v on these SK Hynix chips of mine. Will try tighter timings next. On the CPU side it's a bit weird. I tried as much as 1.35v but 3,900mhz or 3,850mhz and my pc would restart under prime 95 after a few moments. Not a heat issue as I was able to use good old H100 instead of stock cooler. Do yuo guys think this is more of the CPU chip limit or the mobo limit?

Most likely a combination of CPU and memory overclocking limit.....both play a part in this.

Hmm.. Well I can't complain. 3.8GHZ on 6/12 core/threads is mighty fast already xD Was able to tighten my mem timings to 14-15-15-15-35 so I'm quite happy now :D

Honestly, on good days I might get 4.0 GHz with my 1500X. Most days I sit at stock.
And when I'm doing testing and want it stable, I stick to 3.9 GHz. 

I really don't have problems with it being stock at all either, I generally use my machine for mining anyway.

Hey, could you help me? I downloaded latest bios and it won't allow me to overclock, it is disabled. Ihave ryzen 7 1700, b350 tomahawk and a gtx 1080 sc.
