    Same here you need time to figure Ryzen out i checked for another Bios but none atm

    Well, I did finally get my RAM to run at 3200MHz......running stability tests on it right now.

    If everything is good I will be back in a short time to post up a couple images of the changes to the BIOS and the test result.....

    My ram tops off at 3000 but in Bios it's 2996 or something like that and no matter how you adjust it's almost asking for instant black screen

    Now i haven't been pumping voltage into this chip at all but have been tuning the bios when i have time

    I think if you want that RAM any faster you will have to do some voltage increases along with other changes........I have ran wPrime, Performance test, and AIDA64 benches with mine at 3200Mhz and so far it is really stable......However, I want to make darn sure about this before I put up my findings and the settings I am using to get there........

    AMD voltages for ram are actually lower than standard i am not sure if this is th e deal in the bios but when i get off my lazy ass to do so i'll look into it =)

    Had a hell of a week at work 1st day of my week not even 20 minutes into my shift was doing CPR non stop for like 20 minutes i was spent but had the rest of the day to go lol

    Fortunately for me i'm on a 4 days on 2 days off schedule ,I also have to see my private today thank goodness only for a hour or less so i'll have a happy Saturday with the family

    OK, got this new set of G.Skill memory to run at 3200Mhz……..

    After a lot of reading and playing with the BIOS I am happy to say that it is possible……

    The changes I need to make in the BIOS are and they had to be done in this order:

    1. set AI overclock tuner to DOCP

    2. go into dram timing control and change procodt to 48 ohms, leave the other timings as they are>

    3. change vddcr soc voltage to offset + 0.05 - this will give you a total of 1.15 (docp ups this from default 0.90 to 1.1)

    4. up dram voltage to 1.395. up vttddr voltage to 0.675

    The key is to activate DOCP - without doing this, you will not have access to higher vddcr soc voltages above 1.1

    After making these changes, hitting F10 to save them and boot into Windows…

    Once in Windows you can verify your RAM is setup correctly with CPU-Z (I might add that there is a new update to CPU-Z to cover the latest Ryzen 5 release).

    Having ran Performance test 9 prior to changing the memory settings as well as afterwards you can see the jump in the score with the memory performing at its rated speed.

    I see where MSI is going to soon be releasing new BIOS updates for their AM4 boards that will provide users to use their new A-XMP profiles……. Don’t run out and buy one yet, its coming soon but not yet available as far as I know….
    As I mentioned above in the BIOS changes I needed to make to get my memory up to speed the first thing I needed to change was to enable DOCP:

    DOCP is an ASUS BIOS feature on AMD platforms that translate the XMP (which is Intel) settings to a compatible AMD (AMP) form. So that you can use the faster XMP profiles on AMD motherboards.

    OK, there you have it, my experience with this setup. It has been fun and it has been a challenge.

    If you are considering a new system build and are not in a major hurry if you are leaning towards the AM4 arena I would suggest you hold off a month or two, three at the most hopefully and give the boards a chance to mature some…

    I hope this might help others get a little more performance out of their system.......

    Hi,
    I hate passmark it makes no sense at all
    Low 2D graphic's really = I call BS
