Happy to hear it!
Haha - well, me again. New issue.
For some reason, my overclock is never going past 3.65ghz. In my BIOS settings, I set my overclock to something like 3.85 or 3.8, and restart, it boots straight back up, however it has auto switched to 3.65... Has anyone ever had this issue? I have reset the bios defaults, reset cmos - but everytime I change the cpu core clock to anything above 3.65, it just auto defaults back down to it... I can change everything else fine (cpu voltage offset, ram overclock and ram voltage).
I had a similar issue with Crosshair VI extreme. It was a BIOS issue. Asus eventually released a BIOS that fixed it. Are you running the latest BIOS?
Yeah running the latest bios. Was tinkering til the late last night, and I think I fixed it. Seems that when you select the “Asus Optimal” setting it auto switches to 3.65ghz. Changing it back to normal, it enables a higher overclock. Interesting.
is using Prime 95 still a good way to test an oc?
Prime will always be a good test of part of the cpu but not all of it.
IBT was another good one, as is looping of 3dmark etc
You could run MemTest too
But, doesnt Ryzen Master have a torture test built-in?
Realbench will be my go to for quite some time, there's a bit of everything in there
Prime95 blend test is still my go to. If it passes that for an hour it’s going to be stable for anything else you might throw at it work wise.
2700 non x OC guide on a b450 board ? My google skills suck.
there is no need to overclock. they overclock themselves if your cooling and power delivery is decent.
