    I expect i will be the only member..so pretty exclusive :)

    Setup:

    Amd Thread ripper 1950x
    Asrock X399 Taichi
    4x8 Gskill Flare X 3200 C14
    Amd Radeon Vega 64 (xfx)
    Samsung 850 evo 500 gig
    Corsair H115i with 2 varder 2k fans running at 1200(usually)


    and now a few 3900 benches
    that is 3900
    1.3 volts
    llc3 (for 1.3 volts)

    Not the only member, now there's 2 of us!

    I've got:
    Amd Thread ripper 1950x
    MSI X399 Gaming
    4x8 Gskill Flare X 3200 C14
    Nvidia GTX 970
    Samsung 850 evo 500 gig
    Corsair H115i with 2 Noctua 1500rpm fans, running at 400rpm at idle and goes up to about 800rpm under full load.

    Have you upped any voltages at stock speeds to get your ram running at 3200? I have the same ram as yours, but have had the pc freeze once and then not boot (until cleared CMOS) when I was running XMP 3200.

    Edit: Don't know if XMP does it, but I manually upped the DRAM voltage to 1.35v. Seems to be stable so far at 3200.

    nope with the taichi its
    go into the bios
    manual
    punch in 3900
    punch in 1.25
    change offset to llc 3 (i think that is different on other boards...it seems to be backwards llc 5 on this is 1 or off)
    punch in xmp profile(only one there :) )
    ups the volts to 1.35 and done

    soooooo much easier than the ryzen was.

    what kind of temps are you getting

    Here are some screenshots of temps after running Prime95 stress test (Small FFT's) for a few hours. That is stock CPU speed with RAM at 3200 at 1.37v.

    http://imgur.com/a/kIAKK

    Die temp maxes out at about 62deg, with 1500rpm fans on the H115i only getting to 660rpm (CPU1 fan is the radiator fans).

    There is a bug with this MSI X399 board too. On reboot, the system doesn't boot until you turn it off again or hit restart button 1 or 2 times, then it boots again. It's a bit of a pain. Others have the same issue. https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=291025.0

    It's annoying enough for me, I just ordered a Asus ROG Zenith board, may have it by the end of next week (ebay special again, over $100 cheaper after discount than other stores). I'll try and RMA the MSI if they haven't fixed it with a bios update by then.

    You can put me down for being a Threadripper owner, I'm just waiting for SL to be back in stock to get mine in and finish off my build

    TR 1950x
    Asus RoG Zenith Extreme
    3600C16
    Dedicated open loop all EK.

    This is my 2nd ever cinebench run, 4Ghz @ 1.35v. LLC doesn't work on the RoG board so I couldn't get a higher clock as I was getting vdroop to 1.32v. First run was 100% stock, 3040 CB15.

    Another owner here, hopefully complete the build this weekend.

    1950X
    ASUS Zenith Extreme
    64GB GSkill TridentZ 3466 4 x 16GB - took a risk getting this over the flare but saw someone had done a review with the Trident
    Samsung 960 EVO x 3

    I'm holding out for a cheap Enermax full IHS AIO or the Noctua TR4 coolers but they are rarer than hens teeth - might have to go with an asetek. Will go custom loop in about a month after I knock out some work.

    Good luck on your results, I'll be watching eagerly!


    Initially I was going to do the same, but figured if they are already binned at 2%, re-binning isn't going to give us much. Seems to be a cap at 4.2GHz...


    Tarot - does your Corsair H115i work OK?

    This unfortunately isn't quite the case, of the two I know of there seems to be a solid 100-150mhz difference in achievable clock on identical hardware. If you're after guaranteed 4Ghz+ daily stable clocks I would recommend SL.

    Interesting - unfortunately I had to purchase already. Hopefully I have some good silicon...

    Im on a 1950x and Zenith Extreme with a pair of 1080ti's. Cooling is an EK TR4 block, two 1080ti FCWB's, d5 vario and two 480x60mm rads with 8xEK 2200rpm ER fans.

    so far cinebench stable at 4050mhz @ 1.375v (vdroop 1.337v yeah boiiiiii) TR is definitly better binned than Ryzen - my 1700 tops out at 3.8ghz at the same voltage - I havnt spent much time overclocking as;

    Its been fun so far to experiement with disabling:
    - cores
    - SMT
    - dies
    - local/distributed memory
    - memory clocks (fabric clocks)

    and any combination of the above.

    with 32 threads and 16 cores to play with there is plenty to test and work out what is the optimal configuration.

    Im using SLI, each 16x slot is connected to one die on the CPU meaning that any PCIe traffic between the cards must traverse the infinity fabric. Fast communication between GPU's is critical to achieving good SLI scaling - i'd hope the SLI bridge does most of this but at least in the case of xDMA the PCIe bus being fat as fuck is important in multi-gpu setups. Having cache/memory accessed across the same interconnect as the GPU's should have some impact on performance but I havnt yet measured it.

    ---

    overclocking:

    Ive experimented with very high voltages, up to 1.67v and the highest clocks ive managed to pass 3dmark at are 4125mhz - I have a 'theroy' that there is a 'curve' of stability where adding voltage adds stability, up to a point where thermal/current limits start to rock the boat in a very uncool way... but I am yet to properly test various voltages to find their max stable clocks. Im also not convinced LLC/current limit settings are working correclty on this board (yet...)

    Intel XTU was great for showing throttling and I am yet to find something similar for AMD so working out why its not stable is like running around in the dark.

    ---

    memory:

    I have 4x8gb d-die 3333cl16 - using 1.4v dram and 1.35v SOC I can post into windows on 3200mhz but memtest shows errors after a few mins. 2933mhz takes longer to show errros. 2800mhz is error free and ive been able to lower SOC to 1.25v (i havnt tried lower)

    I have some 3600cl16 b-die on the way to test out.

    ps: ill be selling the d-die once the b-die arrives

    the h115i is doing just fine
    3.9 @ 1.25 and 3200 ram and after a few loops of real bench 71 was the highest it peaks most times it is around 65 topped out and runs 50/55 normal use games etc.
    handbrake takes it to 65 at the upper limit.

    from the *other forum* he is stalking me from ... :p

    in regards to yur setup which is quite a bit more hardcore than mine with those cards....gamers mode*may* have more of a difference especially with sli.
    but i still think no.

    as for the ram....next i,m going to try 3466....crazy right i know but hey why not i,m pretty sure apart from that one instance of fail which could have been something else triggering it and still only running 1.35 volts i believe i can get there.

    seems the 1900x has dropped
    one store has it for $799 but i can see it being a little cheaper elsewhere that puts it squarely dollar for dollar against the 7820x(but saying that the boards are still around $100 dearer than intels)

    http://www.staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=threadripper

    seems it has shown up at least 2 stores in stock.

    no reviews yet...which is a bit weird.
    i was asked to disable cores to emulate this but i really do not think that will give accurate results.

    asrock fatality also seems to have dropped for around $749 not great not hideous still think the taichi is the best buy at the moment :)

    XTU is just running Prime95 after its 2 second "benchmark". So maybe use Prime95 (I think version 28.10 was the one...) for tests such as this. Also Maybe Timur Born's threads in the massive C6H thread on OCN about sense mi/sense skew/thermal shutdown/throttling on Ryzen maybe relevant.

    Super interested to see some reviews.

    The x399 motherboard prices are still pushing the overall cost of a 1900x system above the cost of a 7820x system. But you know... 28 pcie lanes... *spits*

    i know...right :) there is that dude with the 2 1080ti's and the 980ti...crammed into that case :p try that on a 299 :)

    i, m still tossing up how to cool this thing without going bankrupt :)
    at the moment keeping it under 70 for normal heavy use isn't an issue but after looking at the other thread with the noctuas i decided to run prime 95...that's scary(small ffts) normal mode was a doddle.

    i, m also tossing up on getting a nvme drive...the ssd runs just fine but ...i want the faster stuff now :p

    I just really want to see the 1900x be a single die dual memory controller enabled chip over a 4/4 chip but I know its going to be the latter :(

    Seems weird, must be an NDA on reviews that haven't yet passed.

    AMD would be keen to get these out and about. The inital rush of x399 seems to have faded, now. Stock levels of mobos seem ok. There are coolers available now.

    I would imagine they will have a regular addition to the thread ripper line up every 1-2 months. A non x 12 and 16 cores are I think highly likely, that is still highly profitable price points for AMD and market share and platforms they want to hit.

    Gotta say, I think Asrock have done well with the AM4 and threadripper lineup. Asrock has some compelling products in both AM4 and TR4. The Tachi seems to have the important features at a reasonable price.

    NDA on the 1900x is meant to lift in about 7h 40mins form this post so will be very interesting to see, i think its just going to be exactly like if you took a 1950x or a 1920x and disabled cores to make them be 4/4

    much like how people disabling cores on the 1800x matched real world performance of the lower skews

    Really, where? I've been tracking newegg and Amazon for over a week but the Noctua and Enermax coolers are always sold out.

    Be very interesting how much market share AMD have won with TR and EPYC already - the quarterly reports will be good reading

    I'll likely hop on when Threadripper / Ryzen 2 happens. Ive got a hardon for the rumoured 48c/96t Threadripper 2/ EPYC2 that was teased in the roadmaps.
