I just got this board on Neweggs Labor Day sale and after reading a bit of this thread I am curious which BIOS I should flash for the best stability.
R7 1800x First Gen Ryzen
32GB (2x16) G.skill TridentZ B-die
The best piece of advice I can give is, return it and buy something else.
I looked at several other boards but none of them had the amount of USB ports this one does or I would. I plan on letting XFR handle the CPU and would just like to get the RAM to 3200 with decent timings. So just trying to make the best of the situation using the best BIOS out of those available.
USB hubs are a thing. The best BIOS will differ depending on the person answering. Some of us have very different hardware from others. 1602 I would say is the best from what I remember. Others will have their personal favorites based on the type of RAM they are using, if their fan headers quit or not, etc. I hope your experience is much better than what most of us have experienced with this disaster.
