i on the beta now and it works as far is i know. but dont know what to look for.

I'm still on a (mostly)stable 2204 BIOS, but i'm ready to update if this beta version is offering some performance and stability.
It feels like we've had nothing but stability issues for the last year, it's about time ASUS gets this straightened out for a high end board like this.

Waiting on further feedback on 2402 Beta.

Been running beta since this morning with no issues. In fact I was able to overclock from 15% to 20% with the new BIOS. Still running stable with no crashes.
Not sure if the OC improvement may be due to new video card - 3090 FTW3 EVGA Ultra.

After installing 2311, coming from 1302, I had nothing but BSODs on startup, finally followed by Windows telling me my boot drive was corrupt. Had to wipe it clean and reinstall all my software which took almost a week to get everything dialed in again.

I'm afraid to touch a beta BIOS from the same source, thinking my motherboard could literally burst into flames.

Wow, such descriptive set of unlikely events combined with BIOS update. Awesome work, lets break out some marshmallows and roast them by the fire ?

In this beta bios, the PLL 1.8v voltage value is malfunctioning in AUTO mode. In AUTO mode it sets a voltage of 2.0v with an IF clock speed of 1600 MHz, a voltage of 2.1v with an IF clock speed of 1800 MHz, and a voltage of 2.2v with an IF speed of 2000 MHz. If I manually set the PLL 1.8v voltage from AUTO to 1.8v (or 1.9v), the system will not reach the post screen after a restart and only cmos clear help. In the 2311 bios version, regardless of the IF speed, the PLL 1.8 value was fixed at 1.8v with the AUTO setting and everything worked normally. Has anyone else experienced this? How safe is it to use the PLL voltage above 2v+?

My config:
ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO (WI-FI) BIOS 2402 beta
Ryzen 5800X + Corsair H115i Pro
Crucial Ballistix 2x16Gb 3600 CL16 (BL2K16G36C16U4R)
ROG-STRIX-RTX2080TI-O11G-GAMING
EVGA 1000W SuperNova T2

Sorry for my incorrect English, I am still learning the language. 🙂

same on x570 impact with 2402 patch C.
1,8V PLL too high and once manually fixed the system won't boot or slow down like a 486.

FCLK above 1600Mhz result in tons of WHEAs, CPU BUS/Interconnect Errors.

2311 works up to FCLK 1900Mhz IF CPU multiplier is fixed (on Auto setting again tons of WHEAs)
