After I updated to 4004 I started "Aura Creator" and it said something like updating my RGB Ports or something like that and restarted my pc. This might help of you are having trouble with your ports
(If you have Armoury Crate installed open it and try running a update)
I'm on the non-wifi version of the board and have been using 4004 for a whole day now ( 🙂 ). No problems that I can see. Nothing Windows' Event Viewer, performance seems about the same. The only minor issue I had was in the BIOS, itself. I reset to factory defaults (or whatever it's called) then came back and applied my normal settings. On the chassis fans, the fan speeds for the lowest temperature range did not show up in what was changed when I saved and exited. But, I came back and checked and they were changed correctly. Looking in HWINFO64, they appear to be set correctly. Which brings up a possible difference. In the past, when I did my Cinebench testing, HWINFO64's Power Reporting Deviation would be someplace in the 70% range (I think -- anyway, it indicates that the BIOS is lying to the motherboard about how much power it's delivering so as to boost speeds). Now, it was just about 100%. So, that's a good thing.
I thought Asus released an update for Amroury Crate that fixes the ARGB header problem caused by Bios 4004. I am running 4004 on my Dark Hero but I have not checked to see if the ARGB headers work. I don't use them, or Aura or Armoury Crate, and am not willing to install either of these programs to test the ARGB ports. Armoury Crate is buggy, and a borderline virus and Aura has just sucked for years. I control my mobo and RAM LEDs with OpenRGB and use Aquasuite for everything else. I would be fine if Asus removed all of their LED headers (and fan headers) and lowered the price of the boards. I have not used the Bios for fan or RGB control for years.

I finally got OpenRGB v0.7 to detect and control the LEDs on my Dark Hero mobo, TUF 3080 OC, and G.Skill Trident-Z RGB RAM. v0.6 could control the mobo and RAM but not the GPU. v0.7 could control the mobo and the GPU but not the RAM. I finally figured out how to get it to control all 3 and now I am happy.
Thank you very much for alerting me to the existence of OpenRGB!
