JonnyVeeI’ve found that EVGA calls Vcore LLC …VDroop. But where (or what is it called with EVGA’s bios) is the SOC LLC?
Fuct6313Not sure how the EVGA FTW board handles it, but a quick note re: RAM and running 4x8 (in case it helps anyone). I've seen a lot of people talk about how XMP/DOCP on their Ryzen board didn't work, RAM was incompatible, etc. And a lot of times that's not the case at all...for the most part ddr4 is ddr4 (with a few exceptions that don't matter for this conversation). Often times the users having issues running 4x8gb turn out to run two identical 2x8gb kits rather than a true 4x8gb kit. There's nothing wrong with that at all...but it can take some adjustment to work/be stable. The following has been a common factor and valid approach across all of the 1st through 3rd gen CPUs and x370 to x570 boards that I've tested. If a 2x8gb kit is rated a certain speed and timing set at 1.35v--that's applicable to that 2x8gb kit. If you decide you need more ram and buy another identical kit to jump from 2x8 to 4x8--you've now exceeded the 2x8 1.35 rating that was indicated in the XMP setting for that specific kit. Populating all four slots puts additional load on the Ryzen IMC, and as a result you have to compensate for the additional load. Some will recommend decreasing speed, increasing timings etc...but the easiest first check is to simply add an additional bit of DRAM voltage.With Hynix based memory--often bumping dram voltage from 1.35 to 1.375 was enough to get anywhere from a boot to full stability. I've rarely had to add any with Micron RevB or RevE unless I was attempting to overclock...if I do it's very small increments, as the Micron ram responds to voltage somewhat differently. B-die based ram I'll typically set up to 1.4 and then adjust up/down as needed. Ryzen has more tie back to RAM and its stability than other platforms I've used. Knowing that I've had the most luck ensuring a bullet proof Ryzen system by thoroughly testing and ensuring memory is rock solid stable. A good quick test is IntelBurnTest v2 or another Linpack-based test. These have sniffed out instability right away any time I've started tweaking. If I pass this--I'll usually run a longer test using HCl MemTest or Karhu. I let the test run overnight/for an extended period. This allows the test(s) to run out to several thousand percent coverage and detect any errors along the way. Since testing this way I've had systems that take anything I can throw at them without crash, hiccup, error, etc.
