In the BIOS, I’m using XMP 2.0 profile 1 which is DDR4-3600 16-19-19-39 1.35V. If I leave the infinity fabric freq setting at auto, CPU-Z reports my NB freq at 899.8 MHz and DRAM freq at 1799.6 MHz. The BIOS description for the FCLK is that when set to auto FCLK will equal MCLK. So shouldn’t the reported NB freq also be 1799.6 MHz? At 899.9 MHz, that’s a 1:2 ratio and not 1:1. I temporarily manually changing the FCLK to 1800 MHz and there were no apparent issues after doing so. Thoughts? Thanks for the support as always!
