First time posting to the forum, indeed it is my first time viewing the forum. Ive been using the Engineer version of Aida64 (registered) for about 3 months now, and overall Im impressed with the software. Its nice to just throw together a few different benchmarks and have them run how and when I want in the order I want. I was doing all this with macros before
Ive recently gotten back into building PCs, took a long hiatus back in the late 90s my last system having been assembled was a 440BX based chipset on an Abit motherboard, both of which no longer exist at least in a meaningful way lol. I was an OC neophyte back then, as I am now, although I do enjoy the hobby/sport(?)
I decided to wade into the dark and murky waters of RAM OCing, and went down that rabbit hole for a few weeks. Long story short, I bought 2 x 16GB sticks of G.Skill 3600mhz XMP mem. Stock timings sucked at 19-20-20-40-500 but I didnt know or care much about timings at the point I bought and assembled the system and so didnt realize their huge impact (relatively speaking) on ram performance.
I was able to get them to post at 4000mhz 17-22-22-36-485 and ran that for a few months, then last night got the idea to try and tweak them some more, thinking maybe all these on off cycles might have trained them to do better (i dont know if that logic is incorrect or not in regards to training, but its how I justified another sweaty night of swearing out loud and smashing keys to my wife)
Im now resting at 4000mhz 16-22-22-40-500 but I can feel they have more to give in the timings department. Frankly, im already amazed at how well these Hynix CJR chips are doing on the OC. My question is basically, Aida shows me as being first place in Latency, and near top tier in every memory bench, with only quad channel or server boards (mostly) beating me. Are these results typical for these chips and my rig? What can I do to push it further if anybody has any recommendations? And am I correct in feeling a sense of accomplishment at being in the top spot for latency, or is my joy tragically misplaced?
Thanks a lot guys, and to the Devs, great product and I will continue to use and support you!

Ryzen infinity fabric for ZEN and ZEN+ (Ryzen 1X00 series and 2X00 series) make memory overclock more useful but complicated.
Sometimes, overclock fails even if both memory modules and memory controller works well but infinity fabric fails.
There are claims that AIDA64 Cache & Memory Benchmark is useful to see if that happens.
If L3 performance significantly lower before overclock, it is fail even if every other test(Testmem5, HCI Memtest, Linpack, etc...) succeed. Because Ryzen (exclude APU) 1X00 and 2X00 series have distributed L3 cache across 2 CCX which connected by infinity fabric, infinity fabric fails affect L3 cache performance.
So......how about allow us repeat L3 bench only (N times or time basic) ?
Or, maybe adding options to see L3 performance results in already exist cache stress test ?

This issue I just noticed today when I was going to start to overclock my new 1700x. Previously, I had a Ryzen 1700 installed and overclocked, using AIDA64 Extreme as a stability test, and had no problems. I thought that it would be just a simple as overclocking my 1700x, but currently the program is almost useless to me. Before going further, as of today, I am on the latest- windows, nvidia, asus bios, and aida64 update. This system is completely fine outside of using AIDA64 Extreme stability test and the built in CPUID tool. When I open the stability test or the built in CPUID tool, the system load jumps up to +20% from around under 3% load. The load on the CPU stays high (20% range) and fluctuates frequently. The system almost locks up within a second and continues to struggle by becoming extremely choppy and laggy; some much so that the computer is not usable while attempting to use any of these tools; practically cannot move my mouse and very unresponsive to CTRL+ALT+DEL. Starting the stress test does not seem the effect the PC any worse than what it was prior to starting the test. AIDA64 stability test also is not showing any of the CPU temperatures. I used the Ryzen Master software and no problems. I used CPUID CPU-Z, no problems. Ran multiple runs of CINEBENCH R15, scores were in line and no problems. I ran the Unigine Heaven benchmark, no problems. ran crystal disk, no problems. Temperature are all great as well. I also have uninstalled and reinstalled AIDA64 Extreme multiple times, while restarting the PC after deletion. Really am at a loss for what could be the issue and I no longer have the Ryzen 1700, so i cannot go back to see if i can replicate the issue that I recently ran into. I might just run a Windows repair or reinstall to see if there is a problem with the OS. Any help would be great!
