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

I’m not at home to pull the model info off the sticks but they’re not on the QVL as there are hardly any 64GB kits listed. 2400 speed so nothing crazy. Similar ram is listed but lower density. Works fine on my 1800x

Edit: Home now.

Board is C6H Rev 1.03
Memory is G.Skill F4-2400C15-16GFXR x 4 (64GB Total)

Same revision, same issue. I remember AMD words:

""Pre-X570 boards will not support PCIe Gen 4. There's no guarantee that older motherboards can reliably run the more stringent signaling requirements of Gen4, and we simply cannot have a mix of "yes, no, maybe" in the market for all the older motherboards. When final BIOSes are released for 3rd Gen Ryzen (AGESA 1000+), Gen4 will not be an option anymore. We wish we could've enabled this backwards, but the risk is too great."

Maybe they knowed that some mobo(same series) works other not. So agesa 1003AB is ready for x3/470 chipset, flash it and try if works with new cpu. https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?112279-X370-X470-AGESA-1003AB-Bioses

flashed the new 7302 bios with no change. I’ll let it sit for a while and see if it clears but doesn’t look like this round of BIOS updates will help us

If I understood your reply correctly, you have a Zen 2 CPU which hasn't worked on C6H with previous BIOS versions (AGESA < 1.0.0.2), and still doesn't work with Zen 2 with the latest with AGESA 1.0.0.3AB?

If so, I'm glad i RMA'ed my C6HWIFI.

Same problem here.
Think a refund will be coming my way too if it's not sorted soon.

managed to replicate the 07 and have somewhat a resolution, need a bit of time to test and will update a test version for you when finished testing.


They are working on these issue..

correct. System boots fine with my 1800x installed but fails to post with 3900x installed regardless of bios versions available. CH6 rev 1.03 *Post code hangs on 07

Have you tried the new beta bios that seems to fix this issue. 7304. I am running this version and it solved my 07 post codes. Its still a beta bios and some things dont seem to work, but my boost goes to 4.5 and my memory oc'd to 3600cl14

Hello Community,

just wanna ask, if there is a reason, to upgrade from my 6903 Bios to 7201(C6H).
On the support/download site, there is "ZERO" information about changes.
I heared the 7106 has some problems with over-voltages. So I didn't concider to update jet.

But if there are features, that are worth to do so, I would give it a try. And only, if I could finaly run my DIMM's at 3466, as they're named.

Thanks and have a great week
Greetings

Hey there 😃

The thing they say about UEFI/BIOS updates is one of the hardest lessons I could learn in this industry - and I'm not trying to be a smart ass here: "Never change a running system!". And that's true. If you do not have any issues and your components work according to your expectation - leave it be. Especially if you do not use a Zen 2 chip. I went from a 1600X to the 3600X and I was on 6903 for the majority of it's life - after it became available. The fan smoothing does not work at all but I just abandoned it and worked around it with a T-Probe. So - in all seriousness - leave it be. Wait until the truly mature Zen 2 UEFIs are out and then you can consider it.

Hey!
Thanks for your comment!
Yes, my system is running cool, fast enough and stable.
So there is no real reason for me to update the Bios. Its only, I would like to run my Dimms at the specs say.
There is also no real reason to hunt the last mhz. 3200 or 3466? Who cares.
So yep, I leave it. I'm still happy with my 1800x

Maybe later this year, I'll do a full upgrade. Or next year, when prices are going down.
So I have more time to consider about, what CPU I shall buy.
Just to mention it.

Thanks again and have a great week!
