    I bought the Low End system from the Hardware Leaderboard...memory running slow..

    Hey Guys;

    I grabbed all the parts off the Hardware Leaderboard for the low end system and everything is running fine it's just that the Patriot memory was detected at 2133MHZ and when I entered the BIOS it was running at 1.20v. I made some changes..1.35v..changed timings to 16 16 16 36 and changed it to 3200Mhz and of course it wouldn't post. I also tried 16 18 18 36 as per a reviewer on the New Egg site claiming the RAM won't run 16 16 16 36. There are lot of settings related to RAM on that Asus board. Do you guys have any guides that I can follow to properly overclock my RAM to the 3200MHZ settings? I contacted Patriot and they think my mobo won't run at the 3200Mhz speed.

    I don't think the Patriot people are correct since the Asus site says it will run at the 3200Mhz speed with a Ryzen:

    AMD Ryzen™ Processors
    2 x DIMM, Max. 32GB, DDR4 3200(O.C.)/2933(O.C.)/2666/2400/2133 MHz ECC and non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
    AMD 7th Generation A-series/Athlon™ Processors
    2 x DIMM, Max. 32GB, DDR4 2400/2133 MHz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
    Dual Channel Memory Architecture

    My Parts list:

    Asus Prime A320M-CR2.0 ..now updated to Bios 806
    AMD Ryzen 1300X with factory Wraith cooler
    Seasonic 430w PSU
    Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD Sata6
    Asus DvD/CD burner
    Patriot PV48G320C6K 8GB RAM kit 3200MHZ 16 16 16 36 timings...? Currently running at 2133Mhz 1.20v

    The memory came from here:

    Welcome to the forums.

    Have you tried OC-ing the ram with just one stick ?

    Does the rig run otherwise without the OC of the Ram ?

    I have not tried 1 stick yet...that's a good idea to give that a go if my attempt at overclocking is correct.

    The rig is running perfectly so far. Installed Win x64. Ran a couple passes of PCMark with success.

    One other odd thing: The Patriot rep got back to me and he pointed out that the owners manual for the main board says it only supports memory to a max speed of 2666Mhz (so that means the Asus website contradicts the owners manual). I wonder if I am barking up the wrong tree here? I just may not achieve the 3200mhz speed this ram supposedly can go if the board does not support that speed? I wonder if the Ryan team had success at 3200mhz?

    Update: The problem seemed to be coming from the A320 chipset. On my 2nd build using a B350 chipset board (Asus Prime B350-Plus) I could set the Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000MHz RAM to 2933MHz with no tweeks at all and everything started running really snappy compared to the default 2133MHz speed. This time I used a Sasmung 960 Pro M.2 NVMe drive for OS install. Once Windows was installed on first power up I see the black UEFI/bios screen briefly and then Windows booted so fast there was no time to see a splash screen or even a login screen..boink the desktop appeared. I ran drive speed test using Crystal Disc Mark 5 on the NVMe drive and it showed a read speed of 3500MB/s and 2200MB/s write speed (Yoink!). It's not a budget build anymore, but it inspires me to play around with B350 and the Ryzen 2200G (the one with the built-in video card) to see what can be done.
