    Hahhaah, well that's very nice. Now I'm actually really thinking of 4650G purchase, since your system is pretty 1:1 to mine! Except the CPU and Harddisks. You're reporting no problems in usage of the 4650G... It will be probably my next upgrade. Even your RAM clock is same as mine! @alles_alles...

    Hey :) Yea, but still pretty strange the whole thing around your Renoir. I have a thought: Maybe the SOC VID was too high for renoir and it's intergrated memory controller. To exclude a defective CPU I would suggest you to try it out in a different mainboard - if you have the ability of course...

    Motherboard Group Buy/Crowdfunded Modded BIOS for the Asrock A300m (Deskmini A300)

    Hello :) It's hard for me to advice to something I did not test, but from what I read others are reporting - 4650G or Renoir for A300 is not trivial. There is no official support for renoir on the A300. And since X300 is almost the same hardware (from what we know) - I see hard times to get it...

    @limsandy hey mate, how are you coming along? Wanted to ask... Are you still stuck on the 2400MHz boundary? Maybe do you have a spare AM4 mainboard?

    Motherboard Group Buy/Crowdfunded Modded BIOS for the Asrock A300m (Deskmini A300)

    Hello, I have experienced similar behavior on tight timings. It was reporting in cpu-z 1500MHz which is ×2 = 3000MHz, had in the BIOS 3200MHz instead thou. I described a bit of it here: https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/sffn-asrocks-deskmini-a300-finally.10553/post-234321

    Yes, you would have to desolder it (very highly), read and then solder back on :) Oh, yes very good point! But I did not want to go that "low-level", since it requires soldering. (again, very probably) But check the Voltage levels before unsoldering with a Voltmeter. I'm kinda paranoic whether...

    @alles_alles ok, I managed to read out my flash, and compare my ROM against ASROCK 3.60R ROM - ID and GUID are the same. Reading using AFUWINGUI v5.13.00.05 - I suggest you start there. Compare both files (if you can) It's "Failed!" when I try to flash the ROM I've read from the flash. It's...

    Maybe there is read-protected area on the flash, so you couldn't capture any keys? I dunno tho Maybe some header in the .bin missing, maybe some kind of checksum / fingerprint missing. we don't know how the tool reads the flash. I guess you have to search the internet.

    Oh boy this is so wrong. I have no idea whether X300 that good is. I understand your thinking. I have just no clue.

    I suggest do not provide more power to the SOC, at this point it's safe to say (I guess) that there is basically no overclock, unfortunately.

    @limsandy interesting findings @1.2V SOC. You had 17GB/s memory Bandwidth at 3200mhz if I can recall correctly. This is an anomaly I've also came across. Please check your memory frequency in cpu-z using 3600mhz. The stability could be "faked" - mainboard does something to the ram, you'll be...

    @limsandy oh, that's very unfortunate. Yea, memtest is only half the truth. As I mentioned earlier, even with stable memtest86+ (or whatever memtest you wish, but low-lewel) it stresses the DRAM channels not that much. I recommend UNIGINE Valley benchmark at low resolution, so the APU tries...

    @limsandy Unfortunately, it can not be guaranteed that you will be able to reach a stable state of the system. Looking forward into your findings. @Valantar Yea, I can relate :) (F5 and browser-cache) I had to Google up your case "Lazer3D HT5" I find it appealing. What I find interesting, can...

    Hahaha you're right. I was missing somewhere the use case and leaned to much out of the window :D I guess some time in the listing I applied my use case. 300W should be enough. But forget the dedicated GPU upgrade (PSU will be limiting) Edit: right, there are PSUs in smaller format than ATX...
