Aorus X399 Gaming 7 Motherboard Review + Linux Test | Level One Techs


That makes sense now. It was winging that my Fedora boot was a gpt partition. Sorted now.

I plan to forward this SSD via IOMMU in the 'next ’ phase from Fedora itself.


Hi all,

Thought I’d post my progress in overclocking the Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 RAM (CMD16GX4M2B3200C16) - I’ve included a link to Amazon.

It took a lot more work getting these to run stable at 3200 MT/s given that the RAM I received are v4.24 E-die. Here’s the config that worked for me -

  • Threadripper 1950X
  • Gigabyte X399 Aorus Gaming 7 (UEFI f3g)
  • Corsair Dominator Plat v4.24 CMD16GX4M2B3200C16 x2 = 32GB

CPU VCore 1.4vdc
VCore SOC 1.125vdc
DRAM Channel 1.48vdc
XMP - disabled
Memory manually set to 3200 MT/s
Timings manually set to 16-18-18-18-36

I noticed in the UEFI the DRAM Channel voltage does fluctuate and touch 1.5vdc. It’s good that I didn’t set it to 1.5vdc directly, as that may have pushed a bit too much through the RAM.

XMP had to be turned off; with XMP I just cannot get it to POST - it may be lowering the voltage, although I’m not sure.
