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

Well, with the latest microcode update that got released, i'm seeing IBPB support for spectre mitigation. I'm using bios 6101 so the updated microcode is not in that bios at least. Not sure how windows handles these microcode updates but i think it supports them as well.

Ok i have successfully over clocked my ram (F4-3000C14D-16GTZ) on bios (6101).
Now my concern is shall I upgrade to Trident X RGB 3200 or stick at 3000 non RGB.
How much will be the performance boost if I upgrade to 3200 from 3000?

From 3000 to 3200.. thats not a upgrade worth the money (personal opinion).

So what's the lowest idle frequency and voltage people are getting stable for their 1800's?

So far I'm stable with an idle frequency of 990mhz @ .9v. I left P0 at stock ... so frequency with all cores active on my 1800x sit at around 3600mhz. If i'm using 1 to 4 cores, i can see some hit 3800. Temperature is not an issue. I can set P0 to hit 4Ghz if i want but when all cores are active at 4Ghz, i do see processor induced memory errors when compiling every now and then. So i'd prefer to try and get the most out of the turbo boost functionality of our gen1 ryzens but it seems that it taps out at 200Mhz over stock. Not sure if there's any way to make it more aggressive with overclocking those 1-4 cores.

My P-states :

P0 - Enabled - FID = 90 - DID = 8 - VID = 20 - Ratio = 36.00 - vCore = 1.35000
P1 - Enabled - FID = 80 - DID = 8 - VID = 2C - Ratio = 32.00 - vCore = 1.27500
P2 - Enabled - FID = 28 - DID = 8 - VID = 68 - Ratio = 10.00 - vCore = 0.90000


Also, am i the only one who is thrown off by how fast the temperature fluctuates on ryzen? I'm water cooled, but the temperature moves as if i dont even have a heatsink on the thing. Both up and down. The speed at which the heat drops back down to idle temps (30c) after being throttled at max where it's in the 60's to 70c is making me think something isn't right. The waterblock should have absorbed lots of heat if the temps are to be believed when throttled, and there's lots of metal and thus hot water in that system and it should take a while before that heat is totally removed back to ambient and since they're touching the cpu, that should keep the cpu temp from fluctuating. Like a heat capacitor, it should smooth the temp transitions of the cpu. But it's like instant as far the cpu temps are concerned. Odd compared to past experience with water cooling amd chips.

For those who not follow C6H OCN thread

Beta BIOS 6201

- AGESA 1.0.0.2c
- Fixes fan calibration wrongly detecting 90+% min duty
- Fixes APM settings (restore power on AC loss)
- Adds an ACPI-WMI interface for sensor readings. It's the first release and may still have bugs. For example there's an issue where some temperatures and VRM current will read 0 at the moment. Latest HWInfo64 Beta will pick this up, not sure about others. This is the SIO sensor fix you've been waiting for. It will only be working fully when all software are using it.

Wow! Gigabyte owners have had AGESA 1.0.0.2c for more than 2 weeks now in the F4g official BIOS.
Syaoran

I don't know if this is complain or what?
Several people tested it and it looks ok - sensors seem to be more accurate, more stable readings and few new items reported by hwinfo64.

Better late than never I say.;) It looks like this new bios might be a winner. I'm reading a lot of positive comments so far in the Overclock forum. I might just have to give this one a go myself.

The F4g on my Aorus X470 Gaming 7 WiFi has been superb so far. Hopefully the AGESA update for the Crosshair produces the same results for Crosshair owners.

Let's home so.;) I'm still running a rather old bios myself because I haven't really felt the need to update and all the newer ones seem to have issues. I will give it a few days and will update if no issues are reported.
