Might be the motherboard, I have seen a review using 2400 and Bristol Ridge is rated to 2400.yup that is a possibility. that could also be why there are no OC results as those boards(a series chipset, ai tweak only shows ram) aren't supposed to have cpu ocing support.
edit: and its 2133 ram. hmmm...
Water. Then air when we get time.Kyle,
when it comes to reviewing Ryzen will you use the supplied coolers or high performance ones instead (such as the Noctua AM4 D15 model) or both?
This could be an interesting situation that may show subtle data performance differences between various review sites depending upon their approach.
Hell yeah! It's Kyle's fault.Excellent. I need some way to justify the research and money I am putting into my first water build. I will just tell my wife the forums told me to do it. I'm sure that will work!
Possible, but unlikely. Usually when this many leaks corroborate the same thing, it ends up pretty accurate. Bulldozer, for example, had numerous leaks this close to launch about its poor performance, which turned out to be accurate.All these benchmarks are faked.... My god you are all so gullible!
You'd be surprised. She (used to?) run a forum for Huskies. She kept getting/sending out all these packages of dog toys and at one point she had spent like $100 in a month on toys for random people on the forum. Her excuse? I HAD TO, IT WAS FOR THE FORUM!!?!Then you need to add something like "the sorry bastage" at the end to fake that you share her distain.
Everyone read this right? AMD employee's blog it seems.
Design and Analysis of an APU for Exascale Computing
One side of the coin that needs investigating well. Anyways I do believe some motherboard makers will list rating for all four slots filled and then OC rating will depend upon configuration what you can pull. Normally 2 sticks you can go higher then 4 sticks. I can see Biostar being quiet on higher speeds because they would be inundated by everyone that has problem reaching it. Who needs the headache.I only think Asus listed 3200Mhz. Everyone else have listed 2667Mhz as max. MSI, Biostar, Asrock etc. AMD also only demoed at 2400Mhz.
3600 has been validatedHaving 8 cores and 16 threads, I would want as fast as memory as possible and hope at least 3000mhz 2 sticks works well enough faster would be better. Also it depends how the memory manufacturer tune their memory to the memory controller of RyZen, which for now is not the case. So I can see several months out faster memory starting to work.
The 8350 only supports up to 1866. AM3+ MoBo usually only support up to 2133. I am running 2400. Listed support isn't always a hard limit.3600 has been validated
And I doubt all the motherboard manufacturers would allow 4000+ on their motherboards if the CPU was not able to support it through overclocking. Gskill 3200 CL14 should be plenty fast.
The Asus ROG Crosshair V Formula Z allowed 2400 MHZ DDR3. I used G.Skill 2400 MHZ DDR3 and sometimes overclocked as high as 2800 MHZ with loosened timings. It neither caused system crashes nor damaged my memory. That was with a FX 9590.The 8350 only supports up to 1866. AM3+ MoBo usually only support up to 2133. I am running 2400. Listed support isn't always a hard limit.
Not at all. Asus has a phone with a trade marked name Zen. That is the one and only reason AMD did not use Zen as product name. Make sense as Asus is AMD's largest motherboard partner. Nough said.The whole point in using Ryzen over Zen is to bypass all the zen related crap a search would have to compete with.
Instead of digging through pages of unrelated zen crap we type in Ryzen and get nothing but great search results.
Just take a look at the zen disambiguation to see what a colossal search s**tstorm we avoided with the name change to Ryzen. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zen_(disambiguation)
