Yeah I have never had a good result with CTR.
try again with the latest version 2.1? made with zen 3 in mind
btw. your 5900x boosts up to 4900Mhz? solid
My 5950X and my previous 5900X both boosted to 5150Mhz.
lol, it boosts to 5050 on some cores (no PBO, just stock)
That was the latest version at the time (it was updated to work with Zen3), I had the correct BIOS rev installed etc, was a pretty common problem.
EDIT: I decided to give CTR another go, got most of the way through the diagnostic then ran into a BSOD cycle everytime CTR was launched, my experience with the program hasn't changed much
+1 for using the latest version (2.1 from memory). The first few iterations were Beta and didn't work well.
I did use v2.1 though.....
Not sure why but CTR just does not like me and I'm not going to force it, getting plenty of performance out of my chip atm
Try easing back the LLC a bit or just resetting defaults in BIOS, that may help with the BSOD issue
I tried defaults and Yuris recommended settings, also tried a few other things as well.
Spent the better part of 5 hours working it out and no dice, so it's now deleted and will likely stay that way
I’ve tried 3 different versions, same result. Let’s leave AMD technology to AMD shall we?
It's fine if you have had bad results using it, but others like myself and many other enthusiasts have found it to be useful. Are you suggesting that only AMD are able to make software to enhance AMD hardware? If no one else can innovate then the entire industry stagnates, CTR will give you a good ball park figure that you can then use to tinker further or use the "safe" recommended settings. Its just a suggestion, you don't need to use it if you don't want to, just don't piss on the devs that spent countless hours developing for a community free of charge.
gotta hand it to der8auer for coming up with interesting content
Hate having to watch videos to get the content, anyone got the Cliff's Notes?
TLDR: Running high volts 1.45 with a high CPU load 24/7 caused 2 out of 3 processors to require another 40mv to perform as well as initial OC testing (at lower than the 1.45 volts)
However both those 2 CPUs were 5600Xs.
... and it was after 4-5 years of equivalent usage (subjective - some would say less, some would say more)
Only one was 40mv, the other was 20mv.
It's interesting to see, 1.45v is a pretty extreme case though, also with some pretty intense thermal cycling.
It would have been great to see a similar test with raised VSOC and VDIMM as well.
Interesting set of tweets here - https://twitter.com/KOMACHI_ENSAKA/status/1460911382379982850
Seems ASUS has bios that supports 5000 series cpus which will be released to 'the lowest A320 due to the lack of semiconductors.' (Google translation). As Komachi asks, if A320 can do it, why not X370?
Pretty good deal here for some quality ram:
G.SKILL Trident Z Neo Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C14D-32GTZN - Newegg.com
Ohh that is nice, I'm still waiting on stock for the 2x32GB 3600 Crucial kit to come in.
Have a feeling I might be waiting a little while
I was waiting on that too, but then the 3200 kit became $417 and convinced me that it would probably OC to the same speed anyway. It should hopefully arrive by the weekend.
