Hi. I have a R5 1600 on a Gigabyte AB350 - Gaming 3, with 16GB G.Skill Trident Z 3200 CAS16 RGB and a Gaming X 1070. Even with the latest BIOS updates, the RAM does not run on its OC speeds. XMP outright shows error in memory diagnostic tool and setting the timings, clocks and voltages (SoC + Memory) results in games crashing. I let it sit at its default 2133MHz SPD. So the problem is I've been getting worse and worse performance everyday. Far Cry 5's in game benchmark gave 95avg fps not 2 days ago, but now it isnt going beyond 89ish avg fps. Without CPU (everything to default) I get 82 fps, when the CPU is OCed to 3.7GHz (everything else to default) I get 84 fps. I know good that the GPU isn't the bottleneck as it doesnt sit at 99% load and the GTX 1070 can do 110+ fps on 1080p ultra on FC5. Other games such as Dying Light, R6 Siege are behaving the same way. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
