  1. What is your fps without overclocking after hours of gaming? It doesnt make sense why the frame rate would drop to a 3rd of what is it. It seems like a program / driver issue to me with a memory leak.

    The only other thing I can think of is the GPU is overheating and downclock to keep from damaging itself. But hours into into gaming?? Your cpu might be the one overheating and downclocking.

    Just some thoughts.

  2. Hmm good point @sticknstone . I,guess I assumed these people already understood CPU overclocking and just trying to get memory stable. But yeah this a 2-part and should be done separately.

    CPU overclocking and checking for stability is necessary. I use programs like Aida64 and Prime95. Aida64 is less intense, thus is more like encoding temps. Prime95 blasts the cpu to the end of the earth. Thats when a 360mm aio might be nessary. I was getting 33 watts per core. That adds up quick.

    For memory, it is much easier to leave the cpu at stock unless you vetted the CPU overclock. Put memtest86 on a flash drive and boot to it instead of Windows. Every time you change frequencies or voltages, boot to the flash drive and vaildate your memory settings. If that passes in Windows use aida64 memory stress test. If it doesn't crash the computer you are all set.

    I do this for every memory review. It takes a few days on and off, but it is the best way to make sure you have soild memory.

  3. Before playing around with the CPU, try just the memory. Personally I leave LLC either at the lowest setting or on Auto. I've killed CPUs with high LLC. I hate the function. It should be locked with a warning screen.

    In any case to get 4400 stable. You will have to raise the memory controler voltage. Auto doesnt always do the job.

    Start at 4000. Run memtest86 and go up until either you get errors or fails post.

    Errors in test 1-5 is memory timings / voltage. Test 6-7 fail / system lockup or restart is usually low voltage cpu controller related. Either the voltage needs to go up slightly, or its already been high for a while and needs to cool off. I would avoid going above 1.25v. That should be enough for ddr4 4600.

    If, you dont want to type in the timings manually, a simple trick is to enable XMP but than change the dram frequency what you want before exiting the BIOS.

    Also that memory has a second XMP of 4133 I believe. If all else fails, give that a go.

    I have to tell you guys, from all these memory reviews I've done with lots of hours on benchmarking. 4000 CL15 is better than 4400 CL19. Plus its eaiser on the CPU memory controller.

    Starting point for 4000-4400

    CPU SA: 1.2

    CPU IO: 1.15v

    DRAM: 1.45v

  4. curious what motherboard do you have? I have two sets of that Patriot Viper 4400. On the Gigabyte Z490 Vision G I cannot get ANY memory to put above 4000. Even that Patriot kit is on the QVL.... However using the MSI Z490 Unify I've been able to post at DDR4 4400 without any problems. So the memory doesn't always work at the rated speed, it can depend on the motherboard, CPU and voltage settings.

    Personally DDR4 4000 CL15 is better I think. Lower voltage and less stress on the CPU memory controller. Much easier to sustain a CPU overclock. I would go for DDR4 4000 first before reaching for the stars.

    Everyone CPU is different, but you can get similar results. 5Ghz is not uncommon and that guide Braegnok link is a great resource.

    Here are my settings for 5.1Ghz / 4400. Bumping up the SA and IO voltage is required for higher speed memory. For example, I can reach up 4266 stable with default 1.1v. If its 4 DIMMS I cannot post above 4133 no matter the voltage.

    1. CPU VCORE 1.275v
    2. CPU SA: 1.2v
    3. CPU IO: 1.15v
    4. Ring Ratio 43x

  5. I've been looking for the specs saying which CUDA and OpenCL is supported in Divinci Reslolve Encoding. I cannot find it anymore.  But it looks like the Free version does not have the GPU acceleration enabled...or so the Blackmagic forums say so.

    I was using it for Divinci Reslolve 17. But that was the beta, so it might be why it was enabled.

  6. Wow these dual X99 are like $400 on ebay used. I beat you could find a Threadripper 1920X+MB for less. $40 for a pair of 2620 v3 is nice, but not good if all the real brands like ASUS and Supermciro the MBs are all overpriced for something used.

    If you use Divinci Reslolve 16/17 Adobe Premiere CC21 you do offload the video encoding to the GPU. Much faster then any dual socket CPU system.

  7. I would agree. However I do not have any experience with stability testing in Ubuntu. I don't want to suggest possible issues that are unrelated. I have a bunch of stuff laying around so if I am being lazy i'll swap parts left and right. But not everyone has that option.

  8. You can go to up 1.35v for 24/7 use. Some big overclockers say 1.4v, but that is a bit high for my own liking for long term use.

    If you passed a hour long stress test, I think that is enough to consider it stable enough for gaming.

    I looked it up and the Ryzen 1600 has around a 3.9-4Ghz soft-limit before it takes a lot more voltage and tweaking.

  9. Okay,

    Since you say thr serial numbers are in order either its 2 kits bought at the same time or more likely actually a quad kit. I was just going by the SKU you listed which only pulls up 2 DIMM kit on google.

    4 DIMMs on a dual channel system can have this effect. Depends on the motherboard and CPU. But first I would remove 2 of them and see if you can achieve DDR3 1600. If so there is your answer. If not well it time to dig into the CPU FSB settings and such. Bump some voltages, etc.

  10. I think your problem might be that you have 4 DIMMs. While it usually isnt a issue at lower speeds, having a second set will inherently lower the highest frequency achievable. Not to mention those are sold as 2x4 kit so its possible the other two from the second set are actually completely different ICs which will also cause problems.

    That's all I can think of. Can't say if that usually is the issue but I would start by removing the second set and seeing you if you can achieve a higher frequency.

    You should invest in some quality 3600-4000 C16 speed memory. You spent the money for a 3080 and a 5600x so why go cheap on memory ? Ryzen cpus really need fast memory with the tightest timings possible to give their best performance. 3600 C16 would be a good buy since it will also allow the cpu infinity fabric to run at 1800mhz.

    The op shouldn't go above 3600 because that is the limit of the 2700X Infinity Fabric. 3800 for Zen2 and 4000~ for Zen3.

  12. USB and Fan is related to the motherboard first. But both can be controlled with software in windows. I don't see how cleaning changed how the software operates, so that points to a motherboard issue. 

    Now I've have come across this many times where USB devices only work in certain ports. It use to drive me crazy when use I work in IT and I never figured it out. So you might try and shuffled the USB devices around into different ports.

    As for a the case fan, I have no clue buddy. Since you took everything apart, just make sure it in on the right header it came from. Thats all I can think of.

    Question: Why did you take it all the way apart? I don't see a reason to ever do that unless something is wrong with the system.

  13. Interesting...

     have to assume this is not all-core OC or matching AVX offset or Prime95 would not be this low without some serious cooling / delid with liquid mental.

    I say this becuase I'm stuck at 5.1Ghz @1.275v and it draws 330 watts in Prime95. Needless to say, It hits 95c all-core in prime95 with a 480 radiator on a open-loop. Though I haven't delid mine yet for lower temps.

    1.4v is on the higher side, but fine if you keep the CPU cool enough and not hitting 100c. I haven't heard this 80c max temp before either. That 360mm kraken z73 is nice, but isn't able to cooler over 240 watts, like most AIOs.

    Either way, congrats on the temps for all-core OC, though I suspect its like 2-4 core overclock instead of all 10.

  14. I took a look at the manual and that motherboard supports 1066. your ram is 1066 and the motherboard is at 800. On page 29 of the PDF, it briefly explains setting the memory clock speed. This pre-dates XMP or DCOP support on AMD, but it should still read the SPD on the memory.

    Sorry can't be any more help. I don't see the ability to set the memory clock in those pictures. The manual has you going into the OC menu instead.




  15. You might have exceeded the limit of that cooler. I see it hit 100c which is when it will down-clock itself automatically. 1.35v @ 5Ghz with a 9900K is about the limit for most of those chips anyways. Golden samples hit 5.1Ghz @ 1.4v.

    I suggest you back off to 4.9Ghz / 1.3v and see if you can sustain below 100c. Of course if you are just playing games, it will never hit that 100c anyways...
