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

anyone else playing with the new 7306? I admittedly don't really dig into the setting much, and am holding off the OC until I get the H115i Pro I've got coming. I'm enjoying the PBO setting after going from 1700X to 2700X but outside that.. not much to playing with it.


I have, I also tried the latest 7401 both reduced my boost clocks. Where before with 7201 I got 4 cores boosting up to 4,401Mhz when I moved to 7306 max boost on 3 cores was 4,301Mhz, on 7401 it was reduced to just 1 core hitting 4.3. With Auto OC on and with memory (Hynix chips) set to 3200mhz 1.35v, memory timings 16, 18, 18, 18, 38 everything else left at auto. CH6 I don't have any of the other problems that people have complained about with their bioses. I have moved back to 7201 with the exact same settings and now get 4 cores boosting to 4.4 and higher average clocks staying in the 4.3 area most of the time including gaming. I use HWINFO64 to record my stats. So there is my experience. Try my settings I have found them to be very stable. https://rog.asus.com/forum/images/icons/icon6.png

i updated to 7401 a couple of days ago still running a 1700x but am looking to get a 3900x when the price comes down and stock levels go up
have been running some Corsair 3200 and its run fine for the last couple of years on updating to 7401 and setting the DOCP to 3200 i was getting blue screen of death randomly

on running mem test 64 the memory was coming back with faults after 30 mins

have now rolled back to 7201 and ran the test again with DOCP 3200 after 6 hours no errors and no BSOD

i did not try resetting the CMOS when i had 7401 installed could this have made a difference?

Asus has posted an official 7403 for the Crosshair VI series boards on their support page.

sorry my fault i typed in the wrong number it was 7403 that i tried not 7401

My 3600X with the latest 7403 BIOS and set to Max PBO+200Mhz barely goes over 4275Mhz.

It's working very cool with an H110i with 4x140mm fans on push-pull so it's not a thermal issue. CPU barely goes 55°C under peak loads.

Will this boost problem be addressed please?

People. What are your Ryzen 3x00 processor voltages displayed in the BIOS on Crosshair VI with default settings? Mine is 1.46-1.5V.

It's normal, UEFI is a mini-OS and actually draws a lot more power than Windows in idle. You can test it with a power meter. Just get used to it 🙂
R9 7950X - ASUS X670E Crosshair Extreme (bios 0803) - 32GB HyperX Fury Beast @6200c32 - Corsair H150i Pro - ASUS RTX3080 TUF OC V2 - Phanteks P400A - Corsair RM850 - WD SN850

Can I get an answer to the question in numbers?

I wholeheartedly recommend checking out Gamers Nexus, Science Studio or any other tech channel on youtube - they will provide you with the entire thing in video form. No sarcasm here, check them out - it will make things much, much clearer.

Yes, same here. 3.8GHz with whoping 1.46V in BIOS with CH6 bios 7403 and Ryzen 3900X (BIOS clock reported 3.8GHz).
Not sure why so high voltage by default in BIOS, since 1.3V would be more then enough even for worst cpu sample for 3.8GHz.

Otherwise, I don't have much issues - 3900x is boosting reasonably OK, 1-core boost observed (rarely though) up to 4.5GHz, typically 4.3-4.4GHz (voltages 1.4-1.5v, IMO a bit high but I guess this is how AMD designed).
All core PBO boost around 4-4.15GHz depending on stress load (4.0GHz on smallFFT in prime95 temp up to 80C, 4.1-4.15 typical in real apps, temps up to 75C). Cooling with Noctua NH-D14.
