Description

  • The highest I can reach with p-state overclocking is 4.0Ghz with 1.36v on this motherboard.
  • Because of the +20°C offset on the 1800x and the ****** software provided with the Kraken x62, stress testing causes the fans to run at 100% very early. And it won't let me change any fan speeds above 75°C.
  • Memory stable at 2800Mhz 16-17-17-35
  • C:\ is the NVMe SSD, D:\ is two HDD in RAID 0.
  • Swapped the Zotac GTX 1080 Ti AMP Extreme with Gigabyte GTX 1080 Ti Aorus Xtreme cause the Zotac one was dead on arrival.

Edit 6/15/2017:

  • I got to 4.0Ghz, on the ASRock X370 Taichi you're not suppose to change the voltages on the individual p-states or else it won't recognize p0 and downclock to p1.
  • The Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB is impossible to set to 2933Mhz

Edit 7/12/2017:

  • Changed to an aggressive fan curve, CPU under load: 55°C to 48°C, GPU under load: 86°C to 76°C.

Looks Hella clean, you should probably get a bigger mouse pad haha, unless you use a really high sensitivity. But sweet build.

Honestly the hardware is pretty good, I can't hear the pump or the fans when I'm not stressing the CPU. Plus the mirror and the LEDs are amazing. It's just the CAM software is horrible with the crashing and the +20°C to control fans, but that's not entirely their fault. If you're planning to get this, just don't use the pre-applied thermal paste.

I have the same Mobo, I have Corsair Dominators 3000mhz and i set the Frequency to auto in the bios. Would it be troublesome to clock them to 2800?

Sorry for the late reply but if you have the latest bios on your motherboard, you can use XMP and set it to 2800.

Hey congratulations on your build! I updated the BIOS as soon as I got the board. Unfortunately, it didn't fix my ram problems because of the different memory kits we're using. Ryzen is most compatible with 16GB kits based on Samsung b-die memory chips which my memory kit isn't using. Apparently there's also timing issues on BIOS 2.40 AGESA 1006 where the timings were either too loose or too tight on default settings causing stability issues. I'll probably play around with it when I feel like crashing my computer with aida64. Anyway, good luck picking an ultra-wide! They're pretty amazing.

Wondering if I goofed getting the ddr-3200 kit 16GB (2x 8GB) kit. I did get the GSKILL Flare which I believe was made exclusively for the RYzen CPUs. One thing that makes me weary also, I got the Tachi MB because the salesman at Microcenter said he got so many of the Cross Hero x370 boards back and they even ended up bricking 2 when setting up a demo desktop system. They recommended the Tachi MB. I checked the QVL after, and noticed 32GB kits don't seem to be on the list which I wanted to do on this build. Any thoughts?
