Help with taming 14900k w/o taking off a lot of performance

I'm trying to get the heat under control on my 14900k but the best I can do without shooting up to 100C and staying there is a Cinebench r23 score of 34.5k. I've seen like 38-39k from most others. Any help or tips? I have an MSI z790 edge and have LLC set to mode 4 and lite load control set to mode 9 right now, but it still hits 99C. Do I just need a bigger cooling solution? I'm using a Lian Li Galahad 240mm AIO.

150% PPT is scary

https://preview.redd.it/zx1kh02sexcd1.png?width=128&format=png&auto=webp&s=f165d7443e98d98bdbf1f7312890eb1c49961a9f

I was messing with Ryzen Master, trying a simple profile and then i saw this.

My CPU cannot pass any test of the Ryzen Master, yet will work on cinebench and even prime without much problem but higher temps.

I have a 5700X and i was trying for a 4.5ghz @ 1.2v

But this software is truly massive and all these PBOs and autoOCs just confuse me and this number seemed scary.

Is this dangerous? why the Ryzen Master software ugly crashes?

Where do i even begin, i feel so lost, all i want is to undervolt my CPU and maybe reach somewhere near it's max boost speed. Every youtube tutorial is dauting to say the least.

ChatGPT DDR4 Overclocking Advice

So I asked chatgpt for some advice on my ddr4 overclock. Im unabled to get gdm disabled with 1t command rate so i figured id shoot my shot with chatgpt lol. Before I start trying their suggested settings, i figured id see what yall think of chatgpt's advice. Here's my post to chatgpt:

https://preview.redd.it/feyccokhcxcd1.png?width=549&format=png&auto=webp&s=f0130323b7767fc108d65ddf8f70b614c4602709

and here is the reply i got from chatgpt:

To achieve stability with Gear Down Mode (GDM) disabled and a command rate of 1T, you may need to adjust several memory timings and settings. Here are some suggestions to help you reach your goal:

Primary Timings

  1. tCL (CAS Latency): You might need to loosen this slightly, for example from 14 to 16.
  2. tRCDRD/tRCDWR: These timings can also be loosened. Try increasing them from 16 to 18.
  3. tRP: Similar to tRCD, increase this from 16 to 18.
  4. tRAS: This can be increased from 36 to 38 or 40.

Secondary Timings

  1. tRC: Increase from 52 to around 54-56.
  2. tRRDS/tRRDL: Increase these from 4 to 6 or 8.
  3. tFAW: Increase from 16 to 20 or 24.
  4. tCWL: Increase from 14 to 16.

Termination and Setup Times

  1. ProcODT: Try setting this to 48 ohms or 53.3 ohms if 40 ohms is unstable.
  2. RttNom: Keep this disabled as per your current setup.
  3. RttWr: You can try setting this to RZQ/2 if RZQ/3 is unstable.
  4. RttPark: Consider setting this to RZQ/5 if RZQ/1 is unstable.
  5. ClkDrvStr: If your current setting of 24 ohms is unstable, try increasing this to 30 ohms.
  6. AddrCmdDrvStr and CsOdtDrvStr: These are already set to 24 ohms, which is reasonable. You might need to adjust these to 30 ohms if instability persists.
  7. tMOD: Set to AUTO or a higher value if manually set too low.
  8. tWRRD/tWRRD_DR/tWRRD_SG: Increase these if you experience instability.

General Tips

  1. VDDG CCD/IO: If you experience instability, try increasing these voltages slightly, but stay within safe limits (up to 1.05V).
  2. SOC Voltage (VSOC): 1.125V is reasonable, but you can try increasing this to 1.15V if needed.
  3. VDIMM: Ensure that your RAM is properly cooled as 1.5V is quite high. You might need active cooling for stability.

After making these changes, test your system for stability using tools like MemTest86, HCI Memtest, or other memory stress-testing applications. Fine-tuning memory timings can be a trial-and-error process, so it may take several iterations to find the optimal settings.

***** HERE I ASKED CHATGPT ANOTHER QUESTION:

What about addrcmdsetup, csodtsetup, and ckesetup?ChatGPT

For the AddrCmdSetup, CsOdtSetup, and CkeSetup timings, making adjustments can help improve stability when GDM is disabled and the command rate is set to 1T. Here are some general guidelines:

AddrCmdSetup

  • Current Value: 0
  • Suggestion: Try setting this to 20 or 24. If instability persists, increase incrementally.

CsOdtSetup

  • Current Value: 0
  • Suggestion: Similar to AddrCmdSetup, start with 20 or 24. Incrementally increase if needed.

CkeSetup

  • Current Value: 0
  • Suggestion: Set to 2 or 4 initially. If the system remains unstable, increase this incrementally.

General Process

  1. Incrementally Increase: Start with moderate values (20-24 for AddrCmdSetup and CsOdtSetup, 2-4 for CkeSetup) and test for stability.
  2. Test Stability: Use stress testing tools like MemTest86 or HCI Memtest after each adjustment.
  3. Monitor Thermals: Ensure your RAM modules remain within safe temperature ranges, especially at higher voltages and timings.

Here's a table summarizing the suggestions:

TimingCurrent ValueSuggested StartIncremental Adjustments
AddrCmdSetup020-24+2 or +4
CsOdtSetup020-24+2 or +4
CkeSetup02-4+1 or +2

After making these adjustments, remember to retest for stability each time. Adjusting these timings can sometimes be the key to achieving stability with tighter primary timings and more aggressive settings like a 1T command rate to achieve stability with Gear Down Mode (GDM) disabled and a command rate of 1T, you may need to adjust several memory timings and settings. Here are some suggestions to help you reach your goal:

Primary Timings

  1. tCL (CAS Latency): You might need to loosen this slightly, for example from 14 to 16.
  2. tRCDRD/tRCDWR: These timings can also be loosened. Try increasing them from 16 to 18.

TM5 Extreme1 - one error after 40 hours

Got a single error after 40 hours, on test 7. Retesting every single modified timing for potentially 2+ days is not quite feasible. Tried slightly heating up the RAM with a hairdryer from far away, hoping it's some tRFC temperature thing, but no success replicating it yet. Any ideas, thoughts, anything really?

5950X, 3600MHz 16-20-20-40 H16A RAM with tRFC = 650 cycles

Is there a Overclocking app that will change between pre sets dependent on time of day/Electricity cost ?

I currently use MSI afterburner and have 5 pre sets made that are all stable, ranging from a big underclock to a big overclock.

We are currently with Octopus energy (Agile) (Uk) which allows us to have energy cost that track the wholesale costs every 30 minutes. Energy is most expensive during 4-8pm, I want the app to use the undervolt/underclock during this period and during the night time use the Overclock ect...

The program would be even better if it could track the wholesale cost of electricity and you could set thresholds (but probably not needed, just need a time tracking one for now)

5800X3D WHEA Logger error

Hello,

I am not really much of an overclocker, but I am having an issue with my 5800X3D crashing to a solid screen and then rebooting the PC. I was hoping the experts on voltages might be able to point me in the right direction. The only error in event viewer are WHEA Logger event 18. The core ID is usually 12, but the last time it was 6.

Specs:

AsRock x570 taichi

5800X3D

G.skill Trident Z Neo CL14 3600

XFX Merc 310 7900XTX

Seasonic Focus 850W

A fatal hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core

Error Source: Machine Check Exception

Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error

Processor APIC ID: 12

From my researchit seems this might be caused by voltage drop on the CPU and I was looking to adjust the LLC to see if I could get it back to stable however I don't see options LLC under OC Tweaker. The only settings I have are below:

VTT_DRR Offset

VPPM

CPU VDD

VDDP

PREM VDD_CLDO

PREM VDDRC_SOC

Do you all have any suggestions as to what I might be able to adjust to improve stability or should I just go ahead and RMA the 5800X3D? Thank you!!

B760 RS PRO ignores vdd and vddq manual values, (xmp profile works fine)

I'm helping my friend with ram oc, and i noticed strange problem. If i try to change dram vdd and dram vddq voltages like 1.35 both system ignores it and works on 1.06~1.08. If I set values to 1.25 then pc do not starts at all, after a few reboots bios sets default setting. Values higher then 1.6 also gives a black screen. BUT now is something even more ridiculous. After setting vdd and vddq on 1.58 it changed in the system to values 1.185 instead of 1.06 that we had before. My question is: wtf? I checked like everything in bios, but nothing seems like that one setting that limits me. I disabled fast boot, timing optimization , realtime timing configurator and etc. Maybe someone here know what setting i missed or had same problem and its works not only for me. Version of bios is latest 9.07

i9 13980HX Undervolting

Olá galera, gostaria de compartilhar a minha experiência com o i9 13980HX, após muitos testes de undervolt, para a criação de 2 curvas otimizadas para diferentes potências e usos. Inicialmente vou pontuar algumas questões:

  • Notebook testado é um ROG Strix G18 - i9 13980HX + RTX 4080 Mobile.

  • Vou deixar muito claro que meu objetivo não é quebrar recordes e sim reduzir consumos e temperaturas aumentando o conforto para uso e até mesmo a vida útil do equipamento.

  • Undervolting não é igual para todos, mesmo que você tenha o mesmo modelo de processador não significa que conseguirá estabilidade com os mesmos parâmetros, podendo ser melhores ou piores. Para isso pesquise sobre a loteria do silício.

  • Testes baseados no consumo e pontuação do Cinebench R23 com testes de estabilidade em diversos outros softwares, jogos e uso diário.

  • Processador com Hyper Threading desabilitado. Para o meu uso não há pontos positivos em deixar ativo, somente negativos como consumo e aquecimento maiores. E em testes no Cinebench R23 essa tecnologia só começa a ter efeito significativo a partir de 60W. Ainda assim os resultados obtidos com o undervolt se aplicam da mesma forma com ele ativo e são estáveis.

  • Notebook teve o metal liquido reaplicado já no inicio de uso pq o método de aplicação da Asus é exagerado e pouco preciso deixando o metal liquido vazar e influenciando muito em temperaturas. Para essa verificação notei que em stress haviam 4 núcleos de eficiência que chegavam aos 100 graus rapidamente enquanto os demais estabilizavam em 80 e o hotspot da GPU obtinha 15-20 graus a mais que o chip. Problemas solucionados. Aplicado UTP 8 nas memórias de video, fases, Vrms e Mosfets.

  • Software utilizado para alterar os parâmetros de tensão do processador foi o Throttlestop. Parâmetros como E Cache e System Agent não têm influência significativa, nos testes que fiz ficaram dentro da margem de erro, portanto para não adicionar mais variáveis que poderiam causar instabilidades foram deixados na configuração padrão. Um comentário a respeito do ICCmax, o Throttlestop altera sempre para o máximo de corrente possível, porém utilizei o recomendado pela Intel para esse processador, 215A.

Para obter as duas curvas dentro da estabilidade do processador inicialmente cheguei ao limite do topo da potência, lembro que na maior parte dos casos de undervolt haverá crashs, não por conta das frequências altas e sim quando o processador volta as frequências baixas que são mais sensíveis a operação em menor tensão. Para isso o Throttlestop possui uma função chamada 800Mhz mV Boost que é um parâmetro para aumentar a tensão da curva na frequência de 800Mhz. Com isso cheguei na primeira curva de undervolting estável em toda a faixa de potência (Turbo Boost) em carga do i9 (6W - 175W). Os parâmetros obtidos foram:

  • CPU P Core : -180mV

  • CPU P Cache: -180mV

  • mV Boost: 180mV

Curva -180/-180

O ganho em toda a curva é bem considerável com menor ênfase em potências menores (10W-20W), efetuei diversos testes com o Core maior que o Cache porém sem ganhos e as vezes até mesmo algumas perdas em performance portanto, na minha experiência, deixar ambos os parâmetros na mesma tensão é mais efetivo.

Comecei a mexer dentro desta mesma curva baixando a tensão adicional que havia colocado para a frequência mínima de 800mhz e aos poucos a curva entre 10 e 30W sofreu um aumento de performance significativo mostrando a influência desse parâmetro em baixas potências. Diante da descoberta dessa informação e testes práticos segui para a criação de uma segunda curva com foco em baixa potência e após mais alguns dias cheguei a conclusão de que para estabilizar a curva o melhor possível era não utilizar o incremento de tensão em 800mhz e para isso os parâmetros ficaram em:

  • CPU P Core : -150mV

  • CPU P Cache: -150mV

  • mV Boost 0mV (desativado)

Curva 30W

Observem que a curva em azul apresentou um ganho expressivo de performance em baixas potências mas ao chegar em 40W a curva em verde começa a superá-la, já que a influência de tensão no inicio da curva vai somente até os 30W, por isso apelidei a curva de 30W. Utilizo ela para jogos leves e não competitivos e principalmente na bateria já que agora limitar o processador em 7W garante a performance de 20W originais com uma maior autonomia.

Outro teste foi de consumo em núcleo único, utilizando os P Cores e o resultado foi surpreendente conforme segue:

Potência X Clock P Core

É interessante notar que em 5.6Ghz (Frequência máxima) e 5.4Ghz a potência média necessária para atingir os clocks foi bastante reduzida, 27,8W para 17,5W e 25W para 14W respectivamente. Além disso notei que ao chegar em uma certa frequência há um salto no consumo em ambos os cenários sendo que isso acontece antes quando há um undervolting aplicado. Mesmo após diversos testes até agora não achei uma explicação.

Seguindo para a conclusão a tabela a seguir mostra o quão eficiente, com as tensões de operação modificadas, conseguimos tornar o processador:

https://preview.redd.it/ajq5en4yxvcd1.png?width=1389&format=png&auto=webp&s=754ae9d669b731a2d55dca3e51299379b5cd6455

Espero que essa breve explanação e gráficos ajude a todos os bem aventurados a ficarem semanas testando para obter os melhores resultados possíveis com seus processadores. Reafirmo aqui que o meu objetivo sempre foi reduzir os niveis de ruído e temperatura para a melhor experiência possível além de garantir uma maior longevidade para o produto. Mas superar os 30K no Cinebench R23 sem utilizar HyperThreading com "apenas 150W" em um notebook foi bem legal.

OBS: Essa metodologia pode também ser aplicada a desktops e outras gerações de processadores Intel.

Am i damaging my gpu?

So i recently undervolted and overclocked my laptop nvidia gtx 1650. Using msi afterburner i changed the curve so my gpu is now using 0,843 Volts and it maxes out at 1785 Mhz with memory +450 Mhz. Default is 1385 and 1515 boost, but i think these are false because it could go 150 above that without any changes. I tried playing elden ring for an hour on max settings and the temperature didnt go above 73°C. Is it going to damage my gpu in the long run or should i keep it this way if the temperatures dont go higher. Before making these changes my gpu could even go up to 87°C, so it runs a lot cooler now. Other components are i-5 12500H, two 8gig DDR4s, 512gb ssd with a 256gb sd card and a 2k 165 Hz aoc monitor.

14900KF, unable to reach power limit with SVID behaviour Typical

Hi everyone,

I did a new config for my PC following my friend advice and using a i9 14900KF CPU.

After messing with different problem at launch (like BSOD when trying OCCT stress test), i followed this reddit post to improve stability : https://www.reddit.com/r/overclocking/comments/1axepvu/optimizing_stability_for_intel_13900k_and_14900k/

So i did the following adjustement in BIOS :

Reset your BIOS to default settings. Ai Tweaker tab:

Disable MultiCore Enhancement.

Enable XMP(if your RAM supports it).

Set SVID behavior to Typical Scenario.

Set short duration turbo power = 253

Set long duration turbo power = 253

Set max core/cache current = 307Amps

So everything, except changing SVID behavior. Everything fine until i noticed some high voltage peak (around 1.515V) when i was gaming without heavy temp (70°C max).

So i decided to try the following change : Going from "Intel safe" to "Typical scenario".

I noticed a nice voltage diminution (like 1.4V max peak) but now i'm unable to reach Power limit (i'm capped at 185W and 5.4 GHZ during XTU benchmark for exemple).

Is this normal ? Should i go back to intel safe ?

Other question, should i use balanced power plan from Windows ? When i did that, voltage goes down to 0.80 when idle, is this OK ?

I'm already hating this CPU, everywhere i look, i don't know if i should let him go all out or restrain him..

Thanks for your help !

Did I get scammed?

Hello everybody, 2 months ago I got my pc back from a repair shop I knew for some time and trusted after i overclocked my ram limit (3200mhz). Before it was soo fast in 2133 mhz but now at the same clock speed it's taking way longer to start up (fast startup is on) and games are way slower and crash more often. My specs are:

  • Windows 11 Pro (fully updated)
  • Gigabyte H610M SH2 V3 DDR4
  • Ram: 32GB DDR4 Corsair Venegance (16x2)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-13400F, 2500mhz 10 cores
  • GPU: MSI GeForce RTX™ 3060 VENTUS 2X 12G OC
  • WIndows and all my games are installed on 1tb ssd

It would be nice to get some help from you guys! I will also post in different reddit communities to find some help.

got my LG 38" ultrawide from 75 to 86 hz. might not sound like much, but man the difference is pretty drastic. below 100-ish, every hz counts. even just the mouse cursor feels way smoother. honestly didn't expect any OC headroom on this display (LG 38uc99). hasn't broken freesync either it seems.

XMP profile causing BSOD

recently upgraded my motherboard to a MSI Tomahawk Max WiFi and used the same 32gb kit. After using the default XMP profile MSI had in BIOS i’ve been getting a lot of BSOD “Memory Management”, “Tried writing to read-only memory” issues. I don’t a full wipe of my NVME and put Win11 and have had less BSOD but i still maybe get 1 a day whilst gaming. What’s the deal?

Possible that GPU temp sensor is not reading temps right?

I decided to overclock my GTX 1050 ti core and mem clock. Got +150Mhz on the core and +1000Mhz on the mem clock, power limit 200% and stock voltage curve. This is the Furmark score and as you can see, my temps are going up to 46°C, which seems pretty low compared to what I read pretty much anywhere on the internet. I haven't seen anything below 60°C with 100% load, even scrolling through Furmark scores, people who OC seem to have temps as high as 70°C, so naturally my low readings are pretty surprising, at least to me.

Anyone has any idea if this is a sensor malfunction or if my GPU just has an insanely good cooler or something? I bought it used, the dude didnt tell me about any sort of repasting or anything, he said it was barely used, but he mentioned he routinely sold cards to crypto miners during the pandemic.

Edit: Posted someone else's Furmark score, edited the hyperlink

14900k problem

Hey everyone i attempted to run my cpu at 58p and 45e but in the end gave up as the wattage needed was almost 400 and all i had was a 360 rad so I reverted back to my pre of settings but now im getting worse cine23 scores and worse voltages and more power consumption

Before I running stock but with a slight indervolt of -0.035

I had my pl1 and pl2 both set to 300 and amps to 400 and that allowed me to maintain 5.7ghz in all stress tests but now with those settings my cores drop to 5.6ghz and even when I set my pl1 and pl2 to auto I still had problems of cores downclocking only when in set amps from 400 to auto do I maintain 5.7ghz in cinebench23 but before I had no problems and before my cinebench score was as 40500 but now its around the 39ish mark

Idk why? But I feel like it’s using more power than before

Dewar size for LN2

So, I’m looking to step up to doing LN2 sometime soon-ish with a 9950x when those come out. How big of a dewar should I be considering, or should I just rent and fill a 160L dewar and see where that takes me in terms of consumption? (If I were to add a 4090 into the mix, how would that change things?) Ideally I’d be good for about a half day to a full day of benching, but not get something completely overkill.

Want to lower the temps in r5 5500

I have r5 5500×MSI b550×RTX 4060×16GB setup

I only use a stock cooler now, i want to keep the temps lower until I buy a cooler The temps are always at minimum 75°C when gaming and sometimes even reach upto 89°C I'm not very comfortable with this and I'm not gonna be changing processors in 3-4 years I didn't buy a cooler listening to a friend saying this processor doesn't need one But now I think that was a bad idea

I tried disabling the PBO in both overclocking and settings But there is barely any difference except I got more score in Cinebench 24

What should I be doing? I tried searching for solution in youtube but only get overclocking videos Sometimes i feel like i'm the only one in this world that uses this processor lol

Should I try messing with DDR5 subtimings?

I have never changed anything on my ram sticks other than enabling XMP on the BIOS, but recently watched a video by a Brazilian youtuber showing significant performance boost after lowering his DDR5 latencies.

But I'm unsure if I'll se anywhere near the improvement that can be seen in his video or if it's worth doing this. Also his ram was a 6800mhz Juhor with a hynix die while mine is a XPG Caster 6000mhz CL40 with a Samsung die, so I'm also unsure on this end.

To sum it up: I just wanted to know if it's worth doing it, and if it is, what subtimings should I try changing?

I'm 100% new to ram overclocking so excuse me if I said anything wrong or if I should provide anymore info.

Heres a screenshot from ZenTimings with XMP enabled.

AMD Ryzen Master bricked my pc

Hi everyone. Specs first:

CPU 7700x

GPU 4070

Corsair Vengeance DDR5 16x2 (branded up to 6000)

Bios set up to DOCP II and memory clock to 5600.

Mobo TUF B650M Plus widi

Installed Ryzen Master and had curiosity to click "auto OC, save and test". Worst mistake. Now PC won't boot at all. Fans, aio, USB, GPU lights everything works but no picture. Monitor goes on for second and sleep due to no signal right away.

To boot in recovery, BIOS etc - impossible, it does not boot to that point. DRAM light is yellow on mobo.

Tried switch ram to different slots, leave only one, CMOS reset, short pins, EZ fash install - nothing. Absolutely nothing. PC was just endlessly running lights and fans. Once in countless tries it will just shut itself off after running for 5-10 minutes.

Any possible solution? :(

Did i just hit the best nvidia driver latencymon zero dpc/isr run possible?

Yo,

(edit/disclaimer: is an audio machine, with somes games on, i know this bench isn't usefull for full 3D games, but even if i have some fps lower than average also my system is more stable, i think my system can eat an other non optimised system that have the double of my fps for example but i don't care because the system is so reactive and i have so much fluidity dat i can run a game better smooth even i i lock it at 30fps vs an other at 800fps unstable ;) (thet an example obviously) )

i'm on amd 3900x, 4x8g b-die 3600 c14-14-14-28 Neo trident z, PSU corsair rm850, MB Gigabyte aero G x570s, rtx 4070 FE, Hard tweaked Windows 10 22h2.

no process lasso or things like this, only set gpu driver affinity on one core (no pci or others are affinity tweaked)

i never seen bench aas low on 1minute latencymon run with nvidia drivers... v537.58 (obviously?)

did u have similars results on the web or i get something really low? is a 24/24 7/7 stability tweaked config

i think the best options to get this latency stability is power settings explorer and some other reg tweaks and another thing that very important, the root of the stability: the bios voltages and is to set a maximum values on manual to get the best static oc possible + obviously a good windows tweak (my installation is an upgrade from xp to seven to 10, NO CLEAN INSTALL SINCE 2008.

only cleaning as much as possible and remove useless drivers. autoruns entries etc....

if u want i can share more tweaks i did to reach dat, i'm not professional, just a guys dat read forums since i'm a child. if u have some advices to have better results plz come on :D cheers

Need help with a asus laptop with defective GPU about underclocking

Hi guys. I have a asus 2021 ASUS TUF Gaming A15 FA506QM i bought it about 2 years ago. The laptop had a warranty for a year but 5 months out of the warranty it started artficating time to time nowadays it happens at least once a day and its very annoying when gaming coding it just artifacts then crashes. I recently downloaded MSi afterburner it couldn't underclock the GPU I tried every setting kernel mode, extended MSI etc then I tried tweak 3 it didnt work either. I believe that the UEFI is locked therefore I can't underclock. I need to find a way to underclock this laptop I really can't afford a new one and I need it for computer sci uni. I will be thankful if you can help me find a way to underclock this laptop please or to find a way to unlock UEFI to underclock. here is a video about how the artifact looks https://youtube.com/shorts/76cAgAI70f8?feature=share

MSI Overclock Scan freezing at 58%

So as the title says, when I run the MSI afterburner overclock scan, it freezes everytime it reaches 58%. I am forced to turn the PC off and on. Anyone know a fix?

7800X3D X670E STEEL LEGEND, 8000MHZ stable.

Well after a lot of tune, research info, i got it, i can pass 1 hour occt no issue, can pass absolut anta 777 (just dont let it end because i was boring with all of this, Ryzen X3D anta 777, i didnt take a screenshot of that because i switched to the absolut xD, anyways, im so happy i can finally achieve this.

i used tm5 0.13 Ryzen X3D Anta 777 por 1.40 min, then i test occt 1 hour (max ram test), then i test again with absolut, 40 min. i think i got it, right?, 3 hours of full benchmark, no errors, im boring, no errors in anywhere.

intresting, occt ram test can draw more power and heat the ram a little more, but nothing alarming.

is it ok to pair klevv ram with hyper x fury ?

hi everybody i already have a pc with a 4650g cpu and an 8 gb of hyper x fury 3600mhz cl 17 17 17 22 39 ram and a b550 aorus elite v2 mobo and i want to upgrade my system to 16gb of ram so i searched on the market of my country and i didn't find another hyper x stick with the same specs of my stick so i searched for an alternative and i found an 8gb of klevv 3600mhz cl18 18 18 24 42 ram so i know that the timing wouldn't be the same so after some editing on my hyper x ram i was able to get it to the same exact timings of the klevv one without any erorrs or smthing like that so will i be able to pair them flawlessly ? also to know that the hyper x uses a hynix die chip but idk about the klevv one
