C6H Test BIOS 0020 with AGESA 1007 (405200c4e299c1eed9a0044edec9aba51f37cee1d70caabe40b9485b0604521a)

In order to get back to an older version after flashing, you have to use USB BIOS Flashback.

Let me know how it works for you, especially regarding cold boot issues. Any confirmed bugs in the bug report form please




Beta BIOS 1501

* Workaround for some CPUs stuck at 22x ratio if using override voltage
* Fixes PCIEX4 bandwidth setting getting lost after power is removed
* Same DRAM boot behavior as 1403 (no cold boot fix)
* Same DRAM profiles as in 9920
* Still has the Vcore value issue when booting with Offset Mode and switching to Manual Mode

UEFI build 9920 for the C6H:

* Improved DRAM cold boot, results in slightly longer POST time
* Fix for CPU Ratio stuck at 22x on some CPUs when using Vcore override/offset
* SenseMi Skew is now Disabled by default. If you want to return to previous behavior set SenseMi Skew = Enabled and Offset = 272.
* Added DRAM profiles for Samsung B-based DIMMs with tuned subtimings, including The Stilt's settings



C6H beta UEFI 1403

* Fixed W_PUMP and AIO_PUMP speeds during POST
* Fixed Fan tuning sometimes failing
* Fixed a few issues with AMD USB3.1 ports
* Some tuning on DRAM settings, let us know how they work for you. tRDRD_Sc is still at 5 above 3500 MHz as it helps with stability. For performance you want to force this to 1. We'll consider changing this in future releases as the performance impact can be quite noticeable in certain applications.

An update on DRAM Boot Voltage, currently it should be 1.35V by default if the DRAM Voltage is changed. So if you're setting DRAM Voltage to above 1.35V, you might want to sync this setting. Additionally there might be scenarios where you will have better luck by syncing DRAM Boot Voltage to DRAM Voltage even at lower values.




AGESA 1006 RC4 official UEFI 1401

Just tested quickly 3600 memory and cold booting, seems good but you guys are going to have to help me test this before we have a judgement. Seems CPU temp reading from SIO now has -20*C offset for XFR enabled CPUs.





UEFI build 1107





Older test builds:


Test BIOS 0079

Test BIOS with new AGESA 1004a, with a couple of bugfixes. Up to 5% performance increases in specific applications. Also has P-state overclocking working with BCLK increase. If you want to keep C-states, make sure to set Advanced\AMD CBS\Zen Common Options\Global C-state Control = Enabled. There are two new settings under AMD CBS\UMC Common Options\DDR4 Common Options\ you might want to take a look at, Fail_CNT and ProcODT. Fail_CNT decides how many times to retry when DRAM training fails (F9 -> 0d), default is now 1. ProcODT can help improve your DRAM overclocking. There's a setting available also on previous BIOSes under AMD CBS\UMC Common Options\DRAM Memory Mapping named BankGroupSwap. If you have 2x Single-Rank modules you can try setting this to Disabled and you might see some performance boost in certain applications.

Test BIOS 0081

Same as 0079 but has ProcODT default = 53.3 ohm

Test BIOS 0082

Same as 0081 but with a DRAM compability patch for the below part numbers

1107 is the newest. I dont know of any other beta bios' that are newer. As far as i know, it was not released with an alt bios like many of the previous beta's were.



Thanks man, *I see lot of people get good speed out of their *3200 duel rank rams. I am still stuck with 2666 or 2799 max. Nothing working for me. If I select 3200mhz after setting clock to manual 18.. then it won't boot and I have to reset everything. :/*

Yes, unfortunately i'm experiencing the same issue with the new 1107 bios, only a slight improvement to 2400 (original was 2100).

findings:

System details:

Ryzen R7 1700 @ 3.88 Ghz
Asus Crosshair VI Hero (BIOS: 1107)
G.Skill F4-3200C16D-32GTZKY (2x 16GB) @ 1.35v D.O.C.P.5 Profile enabled (timings 16/18/18/38)

results:

only a slight improvement to 2400 (original was 2100).

Just got a new result/record with the 1107 bios, using the 106 bclk.
Getting 2544mhz out of the ram now. Any higher bclk or ram setting and it still craps out, so this bios is a definite improvement, so keep up the good work :). Patiently waiting for those last 300mhz , then i can finally run the native XMP profile that my ram has.

I have my 32gb of 3200 LPX (Hynix?) running at 2933mhz, which, in the last month has only resulted in one single boot fail (so I can't really say if that was due to a memory issue). It won't go any higher than that though, not matter what settings. Still on bios 082, not having tried 1107 yet.

i have tried this and been successful in getting the hidden option to appear but have noticed for some reason cpu temps idle around 28'C use the guide u have given compared to around 16'C using the settings im runnings and i can confirm my settings are fully stable.

also didnt need to give any manul offset voltage was happy at defualt 1.352v as in the bios and in windows never pulls over that.

can u please confirm u was on about cpu phase control yes ?

minus offset voltage i was using purely for testing now gone back to using plus offset now.

i have this memory
http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/dominator-platinum-series-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-dram-3200mhz-c16-memory-kit...

so if u know of any ways to get this memory working @3200mhz then im happy to try but tried many settings and not had much joy. but currently running it @ 2666 with timmings 14-13-13-13-30 @1.35v


Currently in my set up, the temps displayed in HWInfo64 drop to around '15C' when idling. Of course, that isn't accurate because ambient room temperature (around 22C at the moment) is higher than that. Seems to be common when CPU temps get low enough to be close to ambient that the temperature measurements displayed behave like this. (I'm using a Swiftech H220X AIO)

What I have noticed is that with my P state 0 set etc, my 'under load' CPU temps for doing the same thing when I was using a straight manual vcore overclock, with no P state are much lower.

For example, a gaming session with manual VCore at 4.015Ghz (and a 1.4v vcore) had the CPU temp rise to around 62C during the session.
Same game but now with P state, the CPU temp during the session levels out at around a maximum 48C.

Again, a Cinebench run with manual Vcore, the CPU temp hit 75C. But with P State, it rose to only around 52C. Same Cinebench score, more or less in both cases. So that's interesting.

As for memory, not really much idea there. Again, it seems to depend on the die. AIDA64 claims my memory is Hynix, so not so good. But other websites claim my particular set of RAM should be Samsung if it's above a certain rev number. Which it is. Either way, my 32GB (4x8) of Vengeance LPX 3200CL16 will not run higher than 2933mhz at the moment. And getting it there required a BCLK of 110. Other people have successfully got the same memory as me to 3200mhz but they were only using 16GB (2x8)

the P-state software control tool that Elmor shared on ocn does not work for me at all. using the OC settings i have listed in my previous post. surely these features / settings should of been sorted out by Asus before the CH6 got released ive gotta say for £250 MB im very disappointed in the amount of broken beta bioses getting released and how many of bioses have been released.



The way P-states and temps are controlled is down to AMD (as is everything in the CBS). If you have a legitimate bug to report, use the form Elmor linked in the sticky thread of this forum. Though, in your case, it's likely the settings you're using. You need to set things up correctly - as it works fine for other users (follow Theagg's advice, and ask him questions if you are unsure).


The platform is raw, and likely will be for some time to come. If you'd like to avoid this, then I'd advise not being an early adopter in the future.

Not too shabby on 1002 -- I'm pretty happy with what I'm getting out of my 1700 non-X.

Bclk is 145.4 if I recall, multiplier set to 26.75 for a clock speed of 3889 and that's the highest I can get it to go, period. Anything higher is not stable with the stock cooler. Voltage is about 1.62 which is quite high, but again usable though I had to go to load line level 3 to nail it in place under load. I'm not sticking with the stock cooler and have the AM4 version of the Noctua NH-U12S on the way. Some small bumps in SOC, SB etc.

I've let it run stress tests until it gets in the mid 80's and then I shut it down. Any reasonable temperature it appears stable and with the Noctua I should be fine I think and that's fast enough for me. Gaming and productivity in this configuration has been smooth and problem free.

My ram is the Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200 16gb kit. The part number is CMD16GX4M2B3200C16 with rated 16-18-18-36 timings at 3200 mhz. It's marked as version 4.24. Depending on who you talk to, you are told it's either Samsung E-die, or some Hynix chip. I have no idea and it's difficult to know without disassembly. If anyone knows for sure for sure -- sing out.

That said, using the 2133 profile and the Bclk I mentioned, I get a rated memory speed of 3101 mhz. I've dropped the timings to 14-16-16-16-32 and it runs fine still. It may not be 3200 but it's close enough and the performance is very good. Voltage is set to 1.4.

Cinebench gives me a 1722 score which is exciting after running my OC'd Ivy Bridge i7-3770K under water to get an 804 score.

I understand the C6H product is new, but it's a very flexible, apparently very durable, and very nice piece of kit overall. I'm having a blast discovering what i can do with Ryzen.

Thanks for the product and this forum and thanks to all you members for the valuable information.

P.S.: Forgot to mention I tried bios 0083 and couldn't get near the above settings stably for some reason. When I have time I might try 0082 and see if it is better. Hence the flash back to 1002.
Tired of trolls and mods that act like this platform has no problems and it's the users fault. Later.

Thanks a lot, I didn´t know about the P-Core States on Ryzen. I put my 1800X with 1.350V overclock to 3950 MHz with + Offset. At this momento my only problema is with cold boot. This morning I try to start my PC but the system loop 3 times, then show BIOS screen and my RAM was at "default" 2133 MHz. I manually overclock my F4-3200C14D-16GTZ RAM modules to 3200 MHz.

I use the PC 24/7 Without problems but if I try turn on the PC from cold boot every time fail and the RAM is set again to default.

Thanks by your time.
