Dood, just like You, it's not about 200 - 300 USD with me, I just want to it work :(. It's my third memory kit, I'm already 400e in a loss :/

I will have Your memory sticks tomorrow [well, today, but I need to sleep at least a bit :D] and than I will run it with default D.O.C.P. and I'll set the Fabric Clock to half the speed, just as You assumed.

Can I keep the RAM at D.O.C.P? You and I we literally have the same CPU, MB and RAM, so I will copy Your settings if You allow me and will let You know.

Or should I run the RAM on some custom timing/settings?
If your going to get the new memory tomorrow. I would not mess with the timings of the meomoryas it could mess up your OS. Didnt see your reply as I was editing my post lol. I Would give you my timings if I could but my Memory is just XMP 3600mhz cl16-18-18-36 so it would not help you.

My deep apologies, I thought You were the cucumber guy @QueueCumber.

Okay, okay. Now I',m game. Okay, I'll try the new memory and will do what You told me to do. Set the Fabric Clock to half the RAM speed [that's gonna be 1900 MHz, since the memory will be 3800 MHz] will leave the D.O.C.P. active, and will see, what'll it do.

Btw. fun fact, my actual memory is 4266 MHz and it's 19-19-19-36-50 or 38-50 and when I use D.O.C.P., CPU-z shows 20-19-19-whatever :/.

Anyway, You have this board too, right? And what CPU?

I have the 5600x and I am waiting for the Asus dark hero 8 from asus to come out( It has that new bio setting to run pbo on low amp draw and oc on high amp draw.it is suppose to be released december 10-20th. If i cannt wait i will get a Msi x570 Mag tomahawk.

Hmm, that sounds interesting. Will this feature be implemented to other Asus mobos too? Or is it a special feature of Dark Hero? I mean, do You think that Crosshair VIII Formula will be able to run the 5950X normally, or is that mobo fubar for Ryzen 5000?

As of now It is only in the Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero Motherboard. The Crosshair VIII Formula is a very good motherboard so it should be Good to Go.

So far she's a mess for me :(. I'm thinking of getting the Xtreme from Gigabyte, but I don't know where. There's no motherboards available due to Covid-19 situation :/

@jtk2515 , @QueueCumber so I have the Ryzen Neo Ram, the cl14 3800 MHz model and I'm left with the same results :(

I tried D.O.C.P. + 1900 MHz for Fabric Clock, than I tried manual timings on 14 - 15 - 15 - 15 - 36 - 48 [and rest on Auto], I also tried JEDEC #0 - #3 and XMP manual settings. I have some discrepancies there, but it's just minor thing. I'm nowhere near the reviewers scores :(

You are useing 4x8gbs of the 3800mhz cl14 and your score did not improve?

2 x 8 GB of the 3800 MHz CL14 and it did, but very weakly. I'm waiting for the second kit, it should arrive on Thursday. So four are better than two, right? [I mean for Ryzen 5000].
Yes you should see between 3-9% increase performance going from 2 rank to 4 rank depending on the benchmark. What site's benchmark numbers are you comparing to?

Hi!
I have the same problems ,..
Specs:
Ryzen 9 5950X
Asus rog strix x570-F gaming
32Gb 4x8 DDR4 corsair vengence cl19 3600mhz
Asus Ryujin 360
Asus rog strix RTX3090 OC
2x intel m.2 ssd
Psu Evga g2 supernova 1300W

In my case the gpu fluctuate in usage like crazy and in timespy it's around 30% usage and 50% powerdraw...
The cpu score is all over the place and much worse then it should, it's like a severe cpu bottleneck.
I can't barely play games at all..

I've tried like everything but without any success.
Tried the gpu in my second rig and it ran as it supposed to, tried my old 1080Ti in my new ryzen build and the same issue, the card could not run at full speed...
Tried to swap the PSU but did not help.
Fresh windows install,
Different bioses tested, drivers, but nothing.
Im now trying to get the retailer to take a refund so I can wait for rocket lake insted...
Or is there a fix?

Are you following the Crosshair VII and VIII discussions on the ASUS ROG forums???

Lots of threads on X570 boards and 5000 series BIOS issues and tweaks with both 3000 and 5000 series CPUs.
