Found a very nice cinebench gain with my X470 Taichi Ultimate and 4 sticks of B-die..

My best previous score was 9669 with the 3950x clocked to 4250 and 16gb (2x8) of Corsair 3600 B-die with timings at 14-16-16-16-36. Lately I've read a lot of post about people experiencing a nice bump if you have 2 sticks of single bank ram, and then bump up to 4 sticks . So I wondered if a gain could be had by going to 4 sticks and I just happen to have an identical set of Corsair B-die that I had been saving for another project. I populated all 4 slots and ran it again, scoring 9805. Next I tightened the timings to 14-15-15-15-35 and let her rip, scoring 9853. Had to stop after this as things were getting toasty (Noctua D-14 Chromax on the way!). Btw.....this Taichi is the best board I've ever owned, love everything about it and praying they release an updated bios so I can drop in a 5950x. Cheers :)

What kind of voltage did you have to run on SOC and the RAM itself to keep that stable?

It's not about the number of sticks but the ranks. Ideal setup will be with four ranks. You went from two ranks to four.

Also, I thought Cinebench was pretty RAM agnostic. I've run with RAM set to 2400 and 3600 with similar results.

If USPS ever decides to deliver my 5800X - I've got a 4x8GB set of 3200 CL16 CJR SR & a 2x16GB set of 3200 CL16 D-die DR that does 3600 CL16. I know the consensus is 4 ranks is the winner but I like to tinker - will post results.
