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

Same as 0081 but with a DRAM compability patch for the below part numbers

Hi, CROSSHAIR VI HERO BIOS 6808 is available I see. But "ASUS strongly recommends installing AMD chipset driver 18.50.16 or later before updating BIOS", yet "Version 18.40.02" is the latest on the Asus d/l site, and AMD's site shows "Version 18.10.1810" https://www.amd.com/en/support/chipsets/amd-socket-am4/x370 Can someone clear this mess up for me please? What chipset driver should I be installing? A link would be nice, thx!

Nice! Noticed any improvements? And, how did you do it?

Atleast some process reaching 3466c14 strict timing.

Had to change soc voltage dot lower it reached from 7000 % to 24k %, my current setting on 3400 is 1.03xx(old bios setting). I know it is high but I can atleast getting some understanding.

Maybe it's just a precaution regarding next gen CPU support? I for one don't understand ASUS's nomenclature when it comes to version numbering. Can't find anything related to their versionnumbers after installing drivers.

I'll try the new BIOS later, running on AMD's official chipset driver (18.10.1810).

I just flashed the latest bios update. Has anyone ever had working fan smoothing with this motherboard? I can't recall it ever working properly, once. It seems to totally ignore my settings.

I am using Noctua fans (CPU PWM and 2 x CF PWM, 1 x DC CF at the rear ). I manually set my cpu fan temps/speeds as a result of the fan spikes that happen immediately with any temperature changes (higher minimum rpm for the cpu that doesn't ramp until 35c).

It didn't work with the original case fans that came with the case either.

boost clock rarely even hits 3.8 under minor load with this bios, using the same settings as the previous version where I would hit 4.3 under small load and 4.1 under full load. Gonna mess with a couple things and see if I can fix it otherwise going back to older bios

Yes, since the beginning...

Does it matter whether or not the fan control is set to manual or auto? And are you using CPU as a source?

Are your fans PWM, DC, or a mix? Is your setup using a mix of internal headers and external ones ie. an external fan controller?

I can't recall it ever working for me properly. Temp goes up and the fans (CPU controlled) go right with it.

What is your delay time?

Thanks.

I use manual. CPU and case fan use CPU as source.
CPU fan is PWM, case fan DC. All headers from mobo.

Thank you. I appreciate it.

EDIT: I still get what seem to be instantaneous jumps when temps change (HWiNFO64) so I tweaked my settings closer to yours which results in a more stable fan curve, and less ramping up/down.
