2700X installed on X370 Gaming Pro Carbon
« on: 21-April-18, 00:24:52 »

Enter BIOS. Set CPU and RAM setting to stock. Save BIOS profile to preserve fan and water pump curves.
Restart and enter BIOS. Set BIOS on default and restart to ensure all was successful.
Shut down.
Removed 1600 CPU / Installed 2700X
Boot to BIOS. BIOS noted that CPU had been changed and offered start up options. I chose F1 for Set up and BIOS completed and opened fine. All looks normal. Install Fan and Water Pump curves from previously saved profile.

Run benchmarks in Superposition and Cinebench while capturing performance in Hardware Monitor
I am delighted with the numbers. On stock settings peaks of 4.4+GHz on all cores. Low temps and modest increase in power consumption over the 1600. I might have received a very good copy of the 2700X. 
This was done with the 3200MHz RAM running at 2133.

Now to spend some time on the RAM speed. Previously best was 2933 on all four sticks,
OC of the CPU can wait.

Well.. my opinion remains the same: AMD used all of us as testing monkeys for their first series of Ryzen chipset. Terrible microcode, very poor overclocking capabilites, very rare updates, memory controller.... and more.

In terms of CPU clock numbers, things look promising. Give them another series of CPUs and we are likely to see a very serious competition to Intel.
Enjoy :)

Nice going,

I'll be getting my 2700X when my retailer gets my X470 Gaming Pro mobo in stock.
Hopefully it will do as nice as yours, i'll post a thread when I get my hands on it.
Enjoy your nice setup

In other words, the Ryzen release followed the same pattern every other brand-new cpu architecture release has followed since the dawn of computer time...;)  New cpu architectures do not simply grow on trees, fully mature and debugged from day one.   Don't know if you were around when the K7 shipped, but the Ryzen launch was a cake walk comparatively--and the K7 was a brand new architecture then, too.  Yep, those K7/A64 days...when Intel was forced to cancel the original Pentium architecture (and start over, dragged kicking and screaming into x86-64, as I recall) simply because Intl's original Pentium architecture wasn't competitive with the emerging K7/A64 architecture ...;)

2933MHz is still the best this system can achieve.
Satisfactory when considering that
2 kits of 2 instead of 1 kit of 4
memory not on the Approved List on the MSI support page
Impressive Cinebench score...!  Very nice! I'm thinking I might pick up another Ryzen cpu myself and shunt this one to the wife.  I do wonder, though, what possessed you to buy ram that was not listed on the compatibility lists?  Price?  I was careful to buy ram that was on the compatibility lists--but even so, I couldn't hit 3200MHz until the 2.8 GPC AC bios was released!  (It was a cake walk after that--ran @3200 first attempt.)  I'm sure you have already tried it with 2x8GB, eh, and no luck?  It's a shame, because as you know, Ryzen will turn that extra bandwidth directly into faster processing.  Don't know what the limit actually is--at what point faster ram stops delivering processing speed increases for Ryzen and the curve flattens out--3400, 3600, or 3800?  It will be interesting to see, I think. I bumped up my ram speed slightly to 3266Mhz (with no change in 3200MHz timings)--but even that tiny increase in bandwidth translates to slightly higher scores in a range of AIDA 64 cpu benchmarks--that surprised me. The Ryzen architecture looks to have very long legs.

The 2700X is quite a bargain, I agree!  I also think that AMD is saving the "2800X" slot for something fairly special (and more expensive) later this year--no question about it...!  Exciting times ahead!

Thanks for the post WaltC,
Initially I bought the two sticks of RAM, um, well, because of the 3200 and more importantly, the BLUE LEDS!
On first try they ran at 3200, not problem. So I bought another set. They too, will run at 3200, all by themselves. But all four together does 2933, no more. I have swapped them around, ran high voltages, tried a gazillion setting tweaks. No go.

This newest BIOS is AGESA 1.0.0.1a. Not the newest. Version 1.0.0.6  has been covered on the internet as allowing up to 4000MHz on a competitors board.
I wonder what AGESA is in the new Gaming M7 BIOS? It is advertised as 3466 capable.

Maybe an Admin can teach us about revision level progression of the AGESA code.

Perhaps, like the BIOS revision level progression on MSI boards, it is not so intuitive. 

Pehaps 1a comes after 6. Oh boy.

I also have the 2700x in the x370 gaming pro carbon.

Highest clock I've seen is 4.35ghz for a split second on one core. In gaming it's usually around 3.925ghz.
Got my memory at 3333mhz with the stilt "fast" subtimings. It's a slight improvement over my r7 1700 which only managed 3200mhz with slightly looser subtimings also.
My cooling is not as good as yours, though. I am seeing temps of 75C during gaming - I have a Notctua NH-D14. Can I ask what cooling you're using? I think the temps are limiting my XFR2 boost clocks.
Also, I believe the latest AGESA is known as 1.0.0.2a. Their version numbers seem pretty random I must say.

Do you know anything about any upcoming Agesa 1.0.0.2a bios updates perhaps?

we know just as much as you know!

MSI like to test in house recently alot more as alot of the Updates from both AMD and intel have been buggy so they are dragging out implementing BIOS updates as the new updates 8/10 times from both have issues!

if that Agesa 1.0.0.2a is released to OEM's then its probably in testing in house rather then just throwing it out as a beta or rushed BIOS!

I actually just found an Agesa 1.0.0.2a beta bios for this board version G1 at overclock.net. Seems to add precision boost overdrive and some more BIOS options for pinnacle ridge.

That's really odd, the NH-D14 should cool much better. I've seen people running an 1800X oc-ed@ 3.9 - 4Ghz, with temps running ~78°C with the same cooler.
So you should get lower temps, since the 2700X runs at lower voltage then the 1800X and it's at stock speed.

What's your case? Do you have bad airflow in the case or high ambient temps?
Did you consider re-applying your thermal compound and maybe replace it with another, better, one?

:hat tip:

Edit:

What's your Vcore with your new cpu installed? Maybe the board  sets it too high and thus you get higher temps.

In other words, the Ryzen release followed the same pattern every other brand-new cpu architecture release has followed since the dawn of computer time...;) New cpu architectures do not simply grow on trees, fully mature and debugged from day one. Don't know if you were around when the K7 shipped, but the Ryzen launch was a cake walk comparatively--and the K7 was a brand new architecture then, too.

Lol, he was only 3 when those cpu's came out, so he probably didn't notice it back then. But good point, people are always bashing AMD for no good reason imo.

My cooling configuration

The case sits on a clear sheet of Lexan so that the bottom fans can draw air in efficiently.
The PSU is mounted in the bottom and draws outside air in and vents out the back.
A 120mm fan draws air in from the bottom.
Two 120mm fans draw air in from the front.
The CPU has a small radiator and has one 120mm fan mounted to blow air into the fins and one 120mm fan on the other side of the radiator to pull air through. This unit is mounted on the back of the case and draws outside air in.
Two 120mm fans exhaust air out the top of the case.
The water pump is set as DC (not PWM) voltage set to constant 12v and speed fixed at 1300rpm
All other fans set as PWM with very low quiet speeds. Lot's of low velocity (quiet) air movement.

Lastly a 1080 GPU is emitting heat into the case. I chose a quiet card internal dual fans, not a blower style.

Note: after setting BIOS to default to install the 2700X I loaded previously saved fan/pump settings from a saved profile. The results was fluctuations in RPM, and very weird responses to my preset curves based on temperature. I wiped the setting clear and started over. The fans curves now are quite different than before. I believe the cooling is better with the new settings. No more fluctuations, fluid rise and fall of rpm. HAHA, I think I am better at fan control than I am at overclocking!

Final Observations
BIOS shows the lowest temps
HWiNFO64 shows consistently 3-5 degrees higher than BIOS
HWMonitor shows the temps in the attachment (higher than BIOS or HWiNFO64
EVGA Flow Control software for the CPU cooler used to show temps in the low 30's on the 1600, now shows coolants temps normal in the low 30's but the CPU always reads in the upper 90's. EVGA is an INTEL slave and never takes care of AMD feature needs. I am not concerned about this software.

30 minutes in Assassins Creed Origins on settings 2K Ultra 3840x2160
Satisfactory results for this processor in my setup.
Relieved that the overclocked 1080 is preforming the same as it did on the Ryzen 5 1600. Close to 1080ti performance and it is quiet.
CPU overclocking test come next.
This stock condition seems pretty solid at 1.3v on the CPU and 1.1ish on the NB. Perhaps this chip could run forever like this on stock setting. 
Interested in seeing what voltages and the heat they produce, that it will take to overclock all cores.

I believe beta BIOS and released BIOS will occur for the X470 boards. Seems a budget challenge for board makers to have enough engineers to fix Spectre on old and new BIOS for AMD and INTEL CPUs, while keeping up with AMD AGESA and the recent, dramatic, increase in the number of new chipset/board combinations. There is a massive amount of choice today.

Sorry to ramble there. The hope is MSI and Admins keep us informed and share what is possible. Because this is FUN.

WaltC how old are you?? Just asking because I remember the K7 days. The word overclocking was not used anywhere. Change a diode in the K7 and pray it works to get more out of it.:bonk:

first PC I built was a AMD Athlon. Overclocking was done in two blocks of DIP switches. Windows XP was the best OS.
I am 62 and enjoy performance computers and PC gaming

Overclocking the 2700X
Core set to 1.4375
NB/Soc 1.2875
VDDP 1.115v
Loadline Mode 4
NB Loadline Mode4
Could get 4.25 stable on all cores
Package temps hit 80C, I believe the VRM section of the motherboard got hottest at 53C, the CPU stayed cool at 43C. My deduction is this, the voltage required is driving the heat. The CPU has no more to give, even with better cooling or even more voltage. Needs faster RAM with lower latency to allow the CPU infinity fabric to perform better. (maybe)
Cinebench score was 1831 with this overclock. The score was 1738 on stock settings at a 56C package temp and the liquid cooling was rock solid at 33C.

Overclock idea from forum at overclock.net
Train the CPU by incrementing .25 and only tweak voltage to make it to the next step. Alternate between Vcore increases and then NB. Don't use Loadline settings unless you can tolerate the fan noise.
Up to 4.225 on all core with Vcore=1.4v and NB/SoC at 1.21v
The voltages fluctuate a small amount under stress.
Interestingly, the CPU speed also fluctuates even with the overclock.
I wonder if HWMonitor is up to the challenge of reporting on this new CPU.
Almost hit 5GHz peaks

Awesome scores in benchmarks

That's the best result I have seen so far for a 2700x well done

I can recommend b-die after struggling with the useless corsair set. Yes its a little more expensive but Its probably the best way to get faster performance for ryzen, especially for the new ryzen 200 series.

Do es anybody know if there is an option for Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) in the BIOSes yet for the x370 boards - this is starting to appear on the x370 Asus and Asrock Motherboards when equipped with a Ryzen 2000 chip.

Maybe an Admin can teach us about revision level progression of the AGESA code.

Perhaps, like the BIOS revision level progression on MSI boards, it is not so intuitive.

Pehaps 1a comes after 6. Oh boy.


I found this on Anandtech forums, posted by The Stilt:

Don't get confused by the AGESA version numbers, because they're different for each branch.
 
 - SummitPI 1.0.0.6x (Bristol and Summit Ridge)
 - RavenPI 1.1.0.1 (Bristol, Summit and Raven Ridge)
 - PinnaclePI 1.0.0.0x (Bristol, Summit, Raven and Pinnacle Ridge)
 - ThreadRipperPI 1.0.0.5 (Zeppelin SP3r2 MCM)
 
 PinnaclePI is the most current development branch for AM4 platform.
 Should be used for all AM4 parts, as soon as it reaches full maturity.

----

So yes, AMD started over with Raven Ridge.  1.0.0.1a and 1.0.0.2a are newer than 1.0.0.6

Is my 2700x weird? It's locked at 4ghz, it doesn't go below that or above that.
I've tried turning cool'n'quiet on and / off, Iused the beta bios .1G1, and I've tried messing with the precision boost overdrive setting on it, but the clock rate doesn't budge
Here it is idle: 

Here it is with all core test on cinebench:


And here it is with single core test on cinebench:


Any ideas?

Can you compare those speeds and maybe temperatures to a second Hardware Analyzer? 
I get huge variances between BIOS, Ryzen Master, HWinfo64, EVGA FlowControl and HWMonitor.
I read posts that state Ryzen adds temperature to a certain sample to ensure the CPU "throttles", or slows down, before damage occurs. Safe, but not helpful really.

Thank you for your time and posts. The information is useful.

Best Regards
Mike
