Crosshair VI Hero: UEFI build update thread

Directly from Elmor:

Beta BIOS 3008 for C6H/C6HWIFI/C6E:

AGESA 1.0.7.1, temperature offset fixed after S3 resume, GPU Post function fixed, 0d with some GPUs fixed

http://www.mediafire.com/file/yj22ld2rmmedp01/ROG-CROSSHAIR-VI-EXTREME-ASUS-3008.zip





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

BIOS version F3 for PC4-3600 and BIOS version F5 for low latency PC4-3333C14 and PC4-3466C14 has been excellent for me on my Gigabyte Aorus X470 Gaming 7 WiFi. The only BIOS that worked this well for me on the Crosshair VI was the 9945 and one of the 1xxx BIOS's, either 14xx or 15xx. It's been too long to remember. Gigabyte's BIOS's might not have as many options but I have had a much better experience with the X470 Gaming 7 in 4 months than I did in the 11 months I had my Crosshair VI before it died.

Have not moved beyond bios 6201.

Do not understand all this unstable overclocks. Maybe my setup is just more compatible. Have not had issue ever since found my settings. Some have said that if needing to increase LLC, then voltages are not set correctly. Call bs on that. For my rig to be over 24hr stable on Prime95, anything outside of LLC on cpu set to 3 and soc set to 2 fails. There is not a safe voltage setting for my 1700X @ 3.9GHz and ram set to 3466 (14-14-14-14-28-42) without LLC set the way it is…period. Obtaining the settings required using Prime95 version 28.10. After running Prime95 with the cpu set at 3.9GHz and loose timings on the ram @ 3466 (GSkill F4-3600C16D-16GTZ) to get the cpu voltages set, ran Ram Test to get the ram settings and timings down. That process netted a fully stable system for my use. After that has been smooth sailing ever since 6201’s release. Whether or not it makes a difference, my psu is plugged into a line conditioner.

Bios settings attached as pdf.

Personally I want the new AGESA as I'm hopeful I will get back my 3600MTs ram which I had previously. I'm an enthusiast with a LOT of time on my hands so for me new bios = new possibilities which I have the time to play around with. I'm also hopeful that some of us may get slightly better than 3600 with the new AGESA. For me this is the thing I do most of the time due to being off work sick long term.

I would recommend that users not hugely interested in the hardware and pushing it should leave their bios as-is if their machine works well for them.

For myself (and a few others!) it is this voyage of trying to find every ounce of power, every improvement... every improvement a new bios/AGESA ver may or may not provide, we are here trying to get that optimal performance, or try to utilize or prove unusual settings are possible.

Pretty sure you love it too @gupsterg 🙂

On another note, I have heard from Raja at last, he didn't say I couldn't share so this is what he said. I had asked if they would replace Elmor in this un-official support role - here's his reply.....

"From January, Silent Scone will go full time, so will be present on both sides of the forum. He’ll be the main ASUS contact from here on. My role here is constantly changing, I have two teams to look after and multiple tasks, so I’ve sampled a few more forum helpers and bought SS onboard to help out. Sorry for the issues.

I have asked what might happen re: bios release/beta releases until then, but still waiting for reply.

Ah i see. Thnx for clearing that up.

Still weird we haven't heard from the ROG team yet.. I send Raja an pm but no answer.. If we want answers we need to contact Asus themselves instead of this forum, this is also not "official" They can release "official" BIOS but when you need support they say were not "officially" here so we have to contact Asus..

I don't get that man..


I don't know the "in & outs". If I understand it correctly this forum is supported by ASUS, "resources" for it to be here are paid by them but I'm not sure if it has official staff paid to take care of it in the sense we may like. I reckon ASUS employees read/chime in as and when they wish to and probably on their own unpaid time. I could be all wrong, about it, dunno.

I understand what your stating and agree, but I find your one of the people that are more composed about need for new UEFI and I also think you understand there is probably a "due process". Others at times seem as if their going from forum to forum with pitchforks 😛 .

Nice to read Silent Scone will be our man :cool: .

This is true gupsterg

I think my age helps me to be more patient lol. I have a fair understanding of how these things work - people really don't know what we had from Elmor, and if ASUS really have realized the value of having him here, then all the better! 🙂

Putting aside AGESA, I'd like to see ASUS looking at their side of the UEFI more.

There are plenty of examples on the C6H that release to release were not getting fixed, but after a fare while they did. This seems to also be happening on C7H IMO :eek: . Below left is screenie from UEFI 0804, right is UEFI 1101.

Hi gupsterg what´s the difference between that BIOS of CH7 besides award for consistency 🙂 I can see you found some improvements...?

So, when can we expect a new BIOS from ASUS for CH6?
