Asus Strix X470-F Gaming owners thread

Hello guys, I am starting this thread for all Stix X470-F owners to discuss their overclock settings, issues etc. So that everyone get help quickly in a organised way. Installed my old 1600x in this mobo with 4011 bios and flareX 3200 with default docp and it works just fine without any issues so far. One thing to mention The board pushes 1.15v soc default docp profile. Is it normal seems a bit high for me as I have upgraded from B350-F gaming.
However a small issue I believe, the asus lighting control is not behaving normal. I mean just after login to windows it is taking a bit time to start (5min) before that if I try to on Lighting Control by clicking it, program crash window appears after few seconds. But when it starts on it's own then I can open asus lighting control. Anyone experiencing similar issue???
Also tried to use older version.

I didn't get much out of 1usmus's profile. We are missing the core scheduler v2 so that's probably why, as its on 1.0.0.4AB. It also messed up my low end P State to 3400 Mhz instead of 2200 which of course increased temps. Performance was a wash, from 7102 CB20 score to 7130, so well within a standard deviation. I'd wait until 1.0.0.4 before anyone tries it with our board.

Windows 10 should have the scheduler optimization already in it, but folks are saying this month's release/update should have more in it?


It worked pretty well for me on a 3800X. CB doesn't tell the whole story, the gaming performance improved with his profile and 1% loads are noticeably better.

you're welcome. enjoy your beast CPU 😄
kinda sad for a ROG board to have SSC hidden.. on a prime or TUF.. ok.. but ROG?

Lots of problems using rog strix x470 f gaming with ryzen 2600 , bios version 5220
I need to try maybe 4 or 5 times to change something in bios because the motherboard dont save the changes. CPU OC is possible only with manual v, offset mode dont work, D.O.C.P dont work., Memory you can do, but trying lots of time. The saved profiles dont work properly. Dont save and dont load the info and you can`t delete.

And a strange _ appears before American Megatrends screen.
I will replace the ryzen 2600 with a 3700x or 4000 line but until that day, I hope to have a motherboard that is at least functional and not bug-packed.

It sounds strange to me that the settings and limitations are not set by the processor but by a package of general modifications that try to encompass them all.

My only option is try bios 4206? its sad...

Is it really that unexpected? 4206 came out in March, which gives it a year of updates to optimize for the 2xxx platfrom. We're fortunate in that we don't have to change the motherboard, like on an intel platform with every new generation. Now, you can run your 2xxx chip with a year of optimizations, until you decide to get the next generation. Then you only need a chip, a newer bios revision, and a few driver updates. Its actually pretty nice compared to the alternative.

I did mean : Version 4602 2019/03/25 as the last strictly 2xxx bios, and I believe Version 4804 2019/06/05, is the first to start support of 3xxx.

Hi all,

I have an issue with a Strix X570-f Gaming motherboard whereby the lights integrated into the I/O shield that should be compatible with Aura Sync are behaving in an odd manner. This is a new system to which I ported my old harddrives over to because I wanted to keep their storage capacity (and I haven't yet gotten around to migrating the OS over to my M.2 SSD yet). When I first turned the system on to check if I could get into the BIOS, all the lights turned on as they should; I/O shield lights, case, fans, cooler, etc. all came on.

However, now when I turn my computer on, the I/O shield lights turn off, and all other lights (such as RAM modules, fans, case and cooler) turn on. When I turn the system off, the I/O lights turn on, but the other lights turn off. The motherboard is also not being found in the Aura Sync App but my RAM modules are - and they're all that shows up in the Aura Sync App.

I've been into the BIOS, gone to Advance > Onboard Devices > LED Lighting and have set the available options as follows:

Option 1) When the system is in a working state: "All On" and "Aura Only"
Option 2) When system is in sleep, hibernate or soft off states: I've tried this as "All On", "Aura Only", and "Stealth".

I've also tried switching the "AURA ON/OFF(F4)" setting in the top right of the BIOS window to "Aura Only" and "All On".

If I change the light settings to All Off/Stealth, then no lights come on, which is expected. But changing the settings to "All On" and "Aura Only" when the system is in a working state doesn't seem to do anything.
I've tried resetting the CMOS by removing the battery, and removing the battery and shorting the two pins as suggested by the manual that came with the board.

I've tried the following:
- uninstalling and reinstalling Aura Sync App.
- turning the lights off in the BIOS , restarting, then going back into the BIOS, turning the lights on, restarting.
- turning the lights off in the BIOS, restarting, uninstalling Aura Sync, restarting back into BIOS, turning lights on, restarting, installing Aura Sync.
- two different Aura versions.
- unplugging all fans and the cooler from the motherboard so they're only powered by the PSU.
- Flashing the BIOS to the most up to date.

Additionally, if I plug the case lighting into a DRGB header on the motherboard through the case lighting won't turn on.

System specs:

Case: Phanteks Evolv X
M/B: Asus ROG Strix X570-F Gaming
CPU: Ryzen R7 2700 @ 3.2GHz
GPU: Sapphire Radeon R9 290x Tri-X
RAM: Team Group T-Force Nighthawk DDR4 3000 MHz *GB x2 (16GB total)
Cooler: Corsair H100i SE Platinum RGB with 2 Corsair LL fans (white).
PSU: Seagate SnowSilent 750W Platinum Rated.
Case fans: Thermal Take Riing Trio Premium x3 with included hub.

Current BIOS Version: 1201
OS: Windows 10 Professional 64-bit
Aura Sync Version: 1.07.71 (have also tried version 1.07.66)

Please note that I have not installed any other lighting software. Only Asus Aura Sync is installed on my machine.

Sorry for the long post.

Kind regards.

Well...
1usmus about ComboAM4 0.0.7.2

It's not acceptable on any motherboard. They actually had to put effort into hiding the setting rather than just leaving it exposed. It's been available on almost every motherboard I've ever owned and I typically buy low and midrange boards.

I mean the purpose is for that niche .0001% of extreme overcockers on LN2 OR for industry work where 100 Mhz causes interference with other sensitive equipment. It's required by the FCC to be a toggle, and that's it. Not hidden and enabled all the time. I have old cheap motherboards from 2007-8 that even have the option still.

You mean 4207 (PinnaclePi 1.0.0.6) I guess - which is the go-to BIOS for Zen+.
Only flash a comboAM4 BIOS if you're upgrading to Zen2.

@kasenoh:
Did you load profiles from older BIOS versions?
If you don't need CSM, you can try to disable it in the BIOS - I think that's the reason for the _ on the boot screen.

@frissonfry:
I know. Even my former Asus H97-Plus had it visible. Not sure about my P7P55D though. 😄
