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

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

Any good news about Ram Clocks with 6401?? 😃

Thanks for your reply and link.
Maybe I give it a try 😉
-------------------------------------
Tried the 6401

CPU still works fine @ 4,0Ghz on 1,365v
But my Ram (Dominator Platinum 3466) still wont run above 3200mHz
It boots with 3333 into Windows but its not stable. (safe + fast settings)
Maybe its, why they are dual ranked. But Samsung B-Die

Well, 3200 is ok and fast enough.
Oh, I use Ryzen Dram Calculator 1.4.0 to generate the settings.

Merry Christmas to all and a great time to all not who don't celeb. it 😉

Hello. I have Kraken x62 and hue+ for some reason none of them it's been detected by the motherboard. Both of them are connected to the internal NZXT USB hub. I connect it to the USB of my windows tablet and the hue was recognized but the kraken not. Did anyone face similar issues? Did I mess up with the drivers?

There might be something about that USB hub that it doesn't like. I have mine plugged directly into open USB port on the motherboard.

A user over on the Overclock.Net forums posted a modded 6401 that restores the missing PBO Options.

And here are the instructions on how to flash the modded BIOS.


UPDATE: The modder is advising against people updating to 6401 at all right now (not just the modded version) as it is apparently bricking some boards. I personally haven't run into any issues, but isn't that always the story of the CH6? 🙂 He had the following to say about it with instructions on how to recover if you get bit...

"Guys, I advise you to refrain from using 6401. I already have 2 cases of a lack of system start on this board. Technical support is aware of a critical issue. How soon will the new bios - the question.

If anyone has a problem. Here is the solution:

1) You must remove the memory modules and update / roll back the BIOS via flashback

2) Install only one module in slot B2 and start the system

3) Turn off the system

4) Install the second module and turn on the system"

Last BIOS still doesn't fix cold boot issue from a complete power-off. This is becoming a disgusting behavior for a big company like ASUS.

I also suggest to ASUS engineers to completely review how pointers works.

6401 now on the download page for the C6H Wi-Fi

Went back to 6302 since it allows Precision Boost Overclock. 6401 does not have an option to enable Precision Boost Overclock. It does appear to allow more memory overclocking.

On the C7H the menu was renamed, XFR Enhancement.

Advanced > AMD CBS > NBIO Common Options > XFR Enhancement

It only allows [Auto/Disabled/Enabled]. This is down to AMD AGESA changes and not motherboard vendors, link.
