    There's a 108 page thread on the ZE over on the US OC forums, complete with tails of woe with memory. It's extremely hard to get above 3333MHz without going very loose or having 1.4V to memory and/or a SOC voltage above 1.1V (but no hard and fast rule on SOC voltage, just that it may need to be higher if you OC your CPU even if the memory was stable at stock). However you're 4 x 8GB so probably single rank - so you've got the best chance to hit your rated speeds. Those of us with 64GB - 128GB top out at 3200MHz on the 801 BIOS, haven't played with the new 804 BIOS yet, there is also an old modified 801 BIOS by the Stilt which is even better for memory. Asus has just about abandoned this platform, we got this new beta BIOS after 2 months of no communication from them at all.

    As suggested by lowdog run memtest (just buy the pro version for $5 so it automates testing the whole lot...) to find the random errors (over 600%) - you might feel stable but those random errors cause programs to crash. Like you I stopped at 3.95GHz (1.30V), above that required more V then I wanted, I actually run stock mostly (with 3200MHz memory) and then run the all core OC profile when rendering.

    Anyone in here running ECC RAM w/Threadripper?

    I am building a ZFS system soon and was looking at the following parts:
    • AMD Theadripper 1900X
    • ASUS PRIME X399-A
    • Crucial 64GB DDR4 2400 MHz UDIMM Memory Kit (4 x 16GB) (CT4K16G4WFD824A)
    If anyone has any ECC experience with Threadripper, please share :thumbup: I am not so concerned about memory speed - just stability.

    not from me but if someone wants to send me some I,ll be happy to test it :) there are people around using it but it is a little hard to track them down, and it also seems to depend on the board as well(from memory asrock has pretty good ecc ram support but don't quote me)

    Interesting video and, well, we can only hope :)

    FWIW I'm running 1900x with 32GB Kingston ECC - works great, no issues at all. Mind you, just running it in quad channel at stock speed and voltage (I'm not an overclocker these days)

    Well, I've arrived, late as usual, it seems.

    Only at the stage of booting to bios right now, after spending several hours tonight stuck on an error '0d' - or so I thought, since nothing was coming up on the screen. At the time I got a 0d code, but it would fade after awhile, which I thought was strange and a bit annoying for debugging. Spent time checking everything since a '0d' suggested just about everything wrong, but nothing got me past the problem. Finally googled the issue and saw some comments about vga/monitors/cables... And this finally led to a solution - switched the monitor and cable (had to switch both because of connection type) - screen appears at last!

    Anyway, sitting in the bios, idling, the CPU temperature was 54C, with the ambient here about 28C. Before I go further, is this a reasonable temperature to see?

    That temperature is perfectly acceptable, the thermal offset for Threadripper is 27c so you are idling around ambient temp :)

    Thanks mate, good to know - I forgot about the thermal offset figure.

    Only just getting back to the machine - of all things to slow me down - we got 2 new kittens demanding attention. :)

    I got mine, All I did was upload a screencap of the invoice to them.

    I'll keep an eye out and see if there is another TR block coming, would love the monoblock for my board but we'll see what happens.
