Thanks. Cpuz checks out for what i wanted to see besides frequency obviously. One stick should have worked on it's own if there was a pairing issue. Has bios update been suggested yet?

Have you tried manually inputting memory values, freq, dram volt, soc vol and primary timings under the manual option instead of editing docp profile?

Yes the bios is on the latest version,
and i have indeed tried manually inputting the values, i tried 3000mhz with 1.38v and here are my timings
16-18-18-18-36
trfc-480
trc-58
rtt_nom-rzq/7
rtt_wr- disabled
rtt_park- rzq/5
power down mode- disabled
procODT- 53.3 ohm

what do i do now :'(
 
Did you try and reset the BIOS to default?
I'm not asking you to do this on a whim - your overclocked GPU which is part of the CPU could be causing issues. It looks like you've also messed with memory timings. Reset everything to auto/default and only touch the memory frequency. Try raising it in small steps, maybe hitting 2666MHz first and testing for stability.

Yes, i tried adjusting just the memory alone, and it still doesnt work.. it never gets to anything above 2400mhz :'(
i'll try it once again rn

Im thinking the processor gen is letting you down mostly.

Last ditch effort, try (if you haven't yet) all settings the combination of these two programs gives you

Now I wonder whether its the cpu or the motherboard or the ram itself , i cant go out of my way to buy another cpu or motherboard, i was saving for a gpu and i have around 210$ and now i just broke my side panel and i have to deal with it and now the memory is getting annoying , ugh this is realllyy annoying, i hope these applications will help :'( , damn i thought my build was perfect , now i guess i have to pay a lot of money to correct all of this :/

Naw try the programs first then see. Even if you have a target speed of 2933.

Wouldn't be the ram because you tried them singly. It's either cpu, motherboard (or bios revision, perhaps a step back is better) or memory settings. You've tried manual settings to quite the level of detail without success. Hopefully dram calculator with it's secondary timings and other settings it offers helps.

Do i revert to a previous bios ? Because now, when i change the timings for trfc and procodt and other stuff, without even changing the frequency , it doesnt post and it says the system is unstable.

i took a screenshot of the thaiphoon program, thought it might help

Dram calculator isn't a sure thing but it can help, inputting all values it suggests. Even for one stick. I don't want to suggest replacing the motherboard but it might well be preferred later on. Perhaps a previous bios revision could help.

You have tried docp profile haven't you? Double checking.

Dual rank is memory specific. You don't have dual rank RAM so don't worry about it.
(dual rank is completely different from dual channel)

Please post the exact full model numbers from each of the memory packages.
Alright i'll try to take a pic rn
Try d or e die if it's there
I tried the dram calculator's settings with my present bios and it didnt work , i'll change the bios version and hope to see a change

Im not sure what that's about sorry. Hmm nothing is helping. Im wondering if you should return the ram for Bdie kit CL 14. CL 14 will be Bdie, the most successful ram for 1st gen.
I just tried downgrading the bios using a usb drive and now my screen is black when i turn on the pc...
