AMD Ryzen 1800X w/ ASUS X370 Pro w/ CentOS 7

Post by desertcat » 2018/02/19 04:24:20

Just for FUN I put together a spec sheet for a friend who is contemplating a future CentOS 7.x Workstation based around a AMD Ryzen 1800x CPU and a ASUS X370-Pro motherboard. There is very little out there of people who have built systems built around the AMD Ryzen and/or the ASUS X370-Pro who are also running CentOS 7.

Anybody out there using either of these components and who are running CentOS 7?

We (try to) run CentOS 7.4.1708 kernel 4.15.4-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64 now, previous 3.10.0-693.17.1.el7.x86_64 on
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600X 3.6GHz
Motherboard: Asrock X370 Taichi
Bios: P4.40
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX16GB (2x8 GB), DDR4 3200 (16-18-18-36) CMK16GX4M2B3200C15
RAM is installed in second and fourth slots (A2, B2) as recommended by the motherboard manual.
"(try to) run" means an oops at 1-7 hours. I upgraded from kernel 3.10.0-693.17.1.el7.x86_64, but still
no luck. Tried Slackware Live with kernel 4.18.* and sadly/gladly it worked more than 24 hours!

Good news!
After a bios reset to default values (check motherboard manual) and nothing else (bios 4.40, kernel 4.15.4-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64, ...), I've
4 days uptime and running. By the way check http://forum.asrock.com/forum_posts.asp ... y-and-tips
"AM4/Ryzen Specific Memory and Tips" and similar. IMHO Ryzen configurations/combinations (MoBo, RAM, OS) are not for anyone.

Best regards,
