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 was having a ton of blue screens when windows tried to do automatic repairs and shut itself down. After shutting down i was unable to POST. after alot of trouble shooting i tested out all 4 of my memory sticks and noticed that these 2 RAM slots, B1 and B2 prevent the computer from posting if a memory card is inserted in them. So if any memory stick is present in any one of these slots, then my PC is useless. This is frustrating because i am downgraded to 16GB single channel from 32GB dual channel. What the hell is going on? the pins look fine. this must be some sort of BIOS corruption or glitch? I am on BIOS 5806 or 5809? The attached image shows the configuration that works. the exposed slots are the ones that cause issues. 87774

Indeed an unusual issue.
Perhaps you should try another CPU to exclude memory controller.

I do not have access to another CPU. I would have to purchase one which is a little prohibitive these days.

Try resetting the bios by jumpers.
Place only 2 modules as indicated in the manual,
Start the system and configure the parameters of your ram in the bios,
Once everything is correctly configured, turn off the system, add the remaining modules and see if the problem is corrected.

Sometimes it is necessary to reset the bios by pins to completely erase the previous settings.

You did not mention brand and speed of your memories, and CPU? you should check with the thaiphoon burner program, if the chips of your memories are from the same manufacturer or not because that could also be generating the incompatibility.

I have a 3600 and 4 sticks of corsair ddr4 3000mhz cl15 from 2 sets. I looked in cpu z and they are identical. I reset the jumper. I did the 2 slot method ss indicated in the image and it would not POST. I then did the 1 slot method and it did 3 beeps. The same 3 beeps as when no RAM is installed. Thats the thing. If any RAM is present in the top 2 slots at all then i cannot post. This prevents me from doing the recommended method. I am at an end. There is no physicsl damage present. I checked all the pins with a light and they are intact with no dust. This whole fiasco has happened long after the ram was installed so it cant be improper seating. I am befuddled.

I have the same issue with another M/B from Asus (PRIME B450M-A and a Ryzen 3 2200G).
Like your scenario, only the same DIMM slots are working @2166 and Single Channel (of course).
I have tried using another DIMMs and the issue remains. So, it is down on either burnt DIMM slot(s) or failed memory controller on the CPU. I do not want to risk testing a 2700X on the PRIME B450M-A, to find out the root of the problem. So, I have left it working @2166 SC, as it is not a critical issue for the system (small test server) and I'll replace the MB and/or CPU in the far future, as the system manifested the issue just after of 4 months of building it.

Cpu-z does not say much, you need to check each module with thipoon burner, I have 32GB, with adata xpg 2x 8gb (d40 samsung b-die), 2x 8gb (d60g hynix CJR C-die) at the same time, they are 3000mhz, and alone per chip family it lets me put them up to 3600mhz, and together the 4, up to 3466Mhz, but the truth is I have them at 3200Mhz because I don't see any difference in terms of having them at 3600mhz, maybe that's where the problem is, try clean the tracks of the memories with isopropyl alcohol, as well as those of the motherboard with compressed air.

Check the ram voltage are at least at 1.35v and v-soc voltage at least on 1.1v.

Last resort put the last bios, if it does not work think about making an effective guarantee if you still have, asus gives 3 years.

I am sorry. but regardless of each ram stick. If i put any single one of my 4 sticks into the top 2 slots it will NOT post. I do not believe differing chip companies has any effect on that. I have used a can of compressed air to get any dust out to no avail. I also updated the BIOS from 5806 to 5809 with no changes. I am running out of options. i am uncertain if it is the CPU or the mobo causing this issue. I don't want to deal with dropping hundreds of dollars simply to trouble shoot. is there ANY way to rule out my CPU or MOBO causing this issue of me getting tons of blue screens and failure to POST if RAM present in the top 2 slots of B1 and B2? thank you for your help. it has eased a little stress off of this fiasco.

Have you tried to check if the MB has developed any significant bending, see how it rests over the mb tray (still flat?) and try temporarily with a light stock cooler just in case it's due to damage caused by a heavy cooler over time. It's not a LGA, but could be worth to check.
