Motherboards with AMD processors / Re: B450M DS3H change profile
« Last post by iamdickens on May 28, 2020, 06:55:38 pm »
Actually no. The mobo is detecting the older set of 2x8gb 2400mhz and the 2 sticks of 4gb 2400. It is not detecting the newer set of 2x8gb 3200mhz. The system info is only detecting the 2x8gb of 2400.  The 3200 is not showing anywhere. But, as you say, it should be corrected when I get my other sticks of 3200 and use all 4 of that speed.

I want to install windows 10 on a new 500gb SSD and improve the set up in a few ways only now I have hit a problem.

It sounds like it all started when you did this Right? If you have any thing on the mother board that has failed. It wouldn't boot to the Bios screen.

It sounds like it does like something that is connected to the MB. Dell's are really known for this on memory. Yes I know you are not running a Dell. As your MB boots the first thing it checks for a CPU, then memory and then GPU before you even get to the Logo screen.

Get first single short beep  after 9 seconds

If you are getting this single beep. It is tell you everything that the CPU, Memory, & GPU are OK.

What I would do is disconnect everything and just have the CPU, Memory & Video card. Then see if you can get into the bios. If you can then get into the bios then reconnect one thing at a time to see which is screwing with MB.   

I have had some drives stop at the logo screen because there is something wrong with the drive and the MB doesn't like it.

Pardon me for posting the wrong information.  You want to use ALT+F10 for AMI BIOS...

Senior moment on my part ALT+F12 won't do anything on your board. 

See this post from King Absic

8yrs old, but still helpful.

Appreciate the info. I'm not sure how this is going to work given that I'm on the main BIOS now but can only be so by having the BIOS selector switch set to 2 (which was originally backup). If I switch to switch 1 it switches to Backup. I'll see what happens tonight when I use the Alt-F10 thing.

Hi,
That's actually helpful info.  So you can see the MB is detecting but unable to use one of the DIMM sets (8GB).

If you are seeing this in the OS, it might have to do with memory management.

This could be a BIOS, chipset or software limitation and why using matched sets of QVL RAM is recommended.  Boards used to be a lot more forgiving, and you could use higher speed RAM with lower speed modules together successfully in many cases knowing that the over all clock speed would be the lower of the two. 

This is not true anymore.  The BIOS and boards are tuned now for efficiency.  Tolerances are tight to improve over clocking ability, power draw and heat.

The new RAM should take care of any settings.  Worst case, CLR_CMOS will take care of it.

Most of the Z97 boards don't support the NMVe drives. If you got it to work feel lucky it is working at all. The board was made in 2014 and there is no update bios for support for NMVe drives. Sorry

I have bought a A320M-S2H V2/
The AMD Ryzen 3 2300X Quad-Core Processor i have been told is not compatable with Windows 7.
Cant stand windowws 10.
Been told that i can use AMD Pinnacle Ridge, Summit Ridge or Bristol Ridge
Just want to confirm thatv these will fit mb,& is cpu fan the same or will i need another.

Greetings,
Have you tried ALT+F12 after power on?

Hi. I didn't even know that was a thing.

It's been okay and I've turned the computer on a few times since, but I just turned the computer on about 5 minutes ago and the M-BIOS and B-BIOS LEDs are flashing intermittently - almost looks as if the LED is going back and forth between the two. Weird thing is it booted up fine, all of my settings appear to be intact, HWInfo is monitoring the Infinity Fabric on my Ryzen 7 3700X as running at 1800MHz (which is what it is supposed to be), RAM at 3600Mhz with the same timings as before, no manual CPU overclock (on auto), etc, custom fan curves are all okay. Why are the BIOS lights flashing? Seriously this is so messed up. First the backup bios fails to reflash the first (I don't even think it tried tbh) so I had to do it manually, then the BIOS switch is in reverse and now the lights are flashing back and forth. I have a sneaky suspicion that bios F50a is dodgy and that the BIOS backup function was screwed up in that update only to reveal itself when the CMOS cleared.

Starting to get annoyed with this AX370 Gaming K7. The only good thing I can say about this board is the VRMs.

EDIT: rebooted and the flashing (blinking) LEDs, back and forth between M-BIOS and B-BIOS has stopped but I'd like to know what this issue is and if it's highlighting a potential issue on the horizon. The BIOS backup blatantly failed to do its job under F50a, now all this is going on.

EDIT #2: just a bit of info. I've had this PC set up for a while now and I've had my 3700X in for a few months, no issues. The CPU socketing was done very, very carefully and I'm confident the thermal paste application was stellar. Thermals and voltages are never an issue and never have been. I've never had any sort of system instability in the paste or even since this weird BIOS issue. I can still play games just fine and have no problems but I would like to find out what is happening here and why the BIOS backup function didn't work and if there is any way to reverse this BIOS being on the wrong switch issue.

Appreciate any help given.

That sucks. But ordered another 2x16 of the 3200. But how do I clear the 24gb out of profile 1? Or will it change with the new sticks? And why the profile shows 24gb and system info shows 15gb? Running linux mint 19.2 if that has anything to do withit.
