I think I finally got it. I found a comment on youtube (!) describing exactly my problem. :-D They said that the VCCIO and VCCSA were set too high using the XMP profile. The voltage settings reported there were still too high for me, but I checked what my stock voltage settings were without xmp and just applied those when xmp was activated. So far, I didn't run into any issues. 3D Mark finally successfully ran through. Gotta verify the settings tonight using memcheck86, but all in all, I am pretty optimistic about this issue now. :-)

Yes but buy only a few fps, not enough to warrant the amount of time and effort.


AMD CPUs are really more RAM-sensitive than Intel ones.

And if you use the integrated GPU of Raven Ridge series the weight of RAM speed is here to see:

I hope you'll sort out your mobo problems STiFU, but that kind of reinforces my point of staying away from Assrock. Even if this is resolvable, the time wasted on it is what would be precious to me.


Btw. that Linus guy is more of a comedian / average joe tech expert. Once I was looking on advice on better PC audio / basic home recording stuf and stumbled upon him. I had to turn him off after several seconds he was talking such bollocks about audio. He seems to know a bit of everything on something, but nothing beyond what you can google yourself.
