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

Every now and again I check for the latest Bios releases, today I really have to wonder about ASUS...
check CH6 Hero WIFI AC.. nothing
check Tuf B450M-Plus Gaming .. 1003 released 4/30
update via internet .. 1201 released 4/25 but isn't on website
check CH6 Hero WIFI AC via internet.. nothing

Ok what the hell? My tuf board gets updated to a bios not listed on the website... not only that but it released before the 1003 on the site.. add to that.. I find it funny my CH6 has never been able to update that way whereas the Tuf board has always done it... Both are ASUS..

not to mention the last 2 bios versions since 6401 are broken

New 7002 BIOS is out, anyone tested it?

CROSSHAIR VI HERO BIOS 7002

I'm curently on 6903 bios and I menaged to get stable 3900Mhz CPU (zen7 1800x) with 3400Mhz memory (Gskill F4-4000C18-8GTZR), which I was unable to do so far with any prevoius bios.
Going to try this new 7002 bios, wish me luck! 😉

If your setup can handle 6903, then 7002 should be about the same. Most people are sticking with 6401.

It is absolutely F****d!. After downloading and installing it my system q codes were going crazy and it wouldn't start up. I had to work out how to format my usb to fat32(only way to get asus flashback to work) and laded an earlier bios. This was supposed be a premium expensive motherboard and the support has been terrible!!!! I don't think any future motherboard will be asus.

installed and no problems at all
AMD Ryzen 7 1800X 3.6 GHZ (NOCTUA NH-U12S SE) ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VI HERO (Sapphire Nitron+Radeon RX 580 4G) G.SKILL Flare X DDR4-3200Mhz C14 32 GB (4x8GB) Samsung 970 PRO 512 M.2 SSD \Samsung 850 PRO 512GB 550MB-520MB/s Sata3 SSD

Also tried flashing 7002, suddenly random bit patterns blinking on my 2 screens. Power cycled after a while, system did not boot.

Bios flashback to 7002 works.

My recommendation: prepare the USB stick before attempting to flash 7002...

Help.
I flashed 7002 using EZ flash, I was told the update was successful however after that my qcodes went crazy and I am unable to use the flashback method: the flashback button does not work at all, it does not light up and it does not seem to respond. I have used the flashback method before, now it's not working.
I don't know what to do any more

Have you done this before?

Before running the USB BIOS Flashback tool, please rename the BIOS file (C6H.CAP) using BIOSRenamer.

yes I have. The button does not light up ever

UPDATE: problem solved, here is more information
I noticed on a youtube video that when the system is off the "clear cmos" button on the back, the one next to the BIOS button, is supposed to be lit up. Mine wasn't lit up. There was no way to get it lit up while the system was off.
After some testing I noticed that with the PSU switched off, if I were to press the power button, the on-board leds would lit up for a few seconds.
1. prepare usb stick and plug it in
2. Switch the psu off
3. Press power button
4. Quickly press the BIOS button on the back to start the flashback tool
5. Once the flashback tool starts, switch the PSU back on
Now the bios flashback tool will keep working for the entire duration of the process.
Clearly this is a dangerous operation. Only do this if you're desperate like me and do not blame me if things go south. Blame ASUS for ****ing up.
