thanks for the 6004 UEFI.
This peace of Crap burns my CPU.
All Fans Stop sometimes and this complete ****ty UEFI raises the Vcore up to 1,8Volt ...
Now my 1800x doesnt Work anymore.
Just F**** YOU!
God damnit, this was the longest time the best Company for Boards of the World. -.-
Thank you. 🙂
Ive send the C6H back three Times to get one that works fine for me.
The CPU is nearly 10 Weeks old and i send it 6 Times back, to get one that can go above 4.2 Ghz. -.-
Every Shop will see in Seconds what happened and will decline an RMA.
Ive updatet the UEFI in the hope, that my DRAM Voltages will be stable... And now my CPU is gone...
After seeing all these posts about board issues even with the new BIOS/s, and i have many of the same issues, and seeing this post, link below, on Guru3d, i am worried that support for these x370 boards will just stop.
I have both the wifi and none wifi versions of this baord , with a 1600x and 1800x. both baords have issues with stability but the 1600x seems to be a bit more stable thou.
I think that Asus should do a baord swop or offer current VI Hero owners the new x470 board on a trade in deal. My boards are less than 6 months old i think and it would be the right thing to do as these boards should really never have been released. As i said in a post above 2nd gen Ryzen and the 470x chipset seem to be what should have been the Ryzen release. Ryzen , 1st gen, is a good chip but i dont think it was mainstream ready. Maybe i was just unlucky sticking with ASUS :p:rolleyes:
fyi: i have used asus boards for more years than i can remember, both for AMD and INTEL system. this VI Hero is the worst board i have ever used from them.
Here is another worrying one, link below. If AMD are abandoning the 1st gen products and x370 they could have a lawsuit on thier hands again, and to be honest i would supoort that unless my 370x gets support or i get the option to get an x470 as a swop out or trade in deal.
Do not get me wrong here i love what AMD is doing, the new chips and the 470x look like they are great products, but i am sick an tired of paying lots of money to be a BETA tester for tech companies, this crap needs to stop. If your product needs to have more R&D don't release it, simple as that.
I hope Asus step up here or make some kind of deal with AMD to allow any unhappy 370x owners to get a deal on the latest products. Intel has been doing this change motherboard & CPU on 'new CPU release’, for a very, very long time. Let’s face it Intel has not released anything new, in term of architecture or innovation for decades. It beat AMD almost to death with constant legal actions and anti-competitive behaviour for years making you and I pay more and more money for tweaking things a little and jacking up the price of hardware. The motherboard manufactures are complicit in this as proved by BIOS hacks to make new Intel chips work on older boards.
So it looks like the BIOS update, 6004, killed my RAID array, again. 3rd or 4th windows rebuild because of the raid failure.
When i got my 2700x i did the BIOS update on the x1800. got back into windows and make sure everything was working. powered off and removed it and installed the 2700x. all seemed fine for +-24hours. I tried my memory at rated speed 3200Mhz that did not work and went back to 2933Mhz or whatever it is. No issues, suddenly windows did a blue screen rebooted and that was windows gone, winload.efi error. nothing i tired got windows booting again.
I run acronis, so tried a restore from the latest backup, which was 5 hours old. I could not get the system to boot from that backup restoring to the original 2 x 500GB ssds in raid or a single sdd, same error. I then reinstalled windows on a single NVMe drive. I have given up on raid on this board it does not work. Now i have run raid 0 on basically every motherboard since it was release on IDE motherboards years ago.
I have never ever had so many issues with raid on a motherboard every, and this is not an exaggeration.
I have managed to recover and get windows working again because Acronis is simply a brilliant bit of software. I did a restore to a singe 500gb sdd, one of the ones i was using in the Raid array, on one of my old x79 boards. i did a restore on an Asus Ramage IV gene running an Intel Xeon E5 1650 v2.
This system is bootable and works 100% fine and is stable.
In short THIS MOTHERBOARD IS CRAP...
But two good things have come of this. Acronis is worth the money and windows 10 kicks butt. this was a restore to different hardware and not one blue screen. It updated the drivers and bang good to go. 😄

You're rma'ing working hardware to get the best silicone lottery winner? This sounds more like karma (even though karma works after you die) than incompetence from asus.
Though, the bios does a poor job at ensuring non-safe voltages are only applied when explicitly requested. This is true of all the revisions though, and one of the primary reasons we have to reset to defaults before updating. It sounds like you did not and got bit. Which sucks, but it's well known.
Its not cool to send back working prozessors only they don't reach 4,2Ghz.
So hell, thats karma 😉 Go with it and stop crying!
