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

C6H WiFi BIOS 3101 link from elmor, will be testing on my board some time tomorrow after work.

Yeap. Experiencing some weird issues myself (also check my other post here).

Currently experienced this in Overwatch and Dishonored 2 since these are the most recent I've played since updating to 3008. Started noticing this weird behaviour when resuming from sleep.

Like you said. It's easily fixable by restarting the system.

EDIT: In Overwatch the effect is similar to rubber banding - runs normally then stops my character in place then resumes.
Dishonored 2 - the lip sync is fast forwarding skipping audio dialog sections.


I am seeing this in Battlefront 2 as well.

Ok, I'm getting this also in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
since installing 3008, but I've also installed Radeon Adrenaline drivers & AMD chipset drivers recently as well, so it's not clear where the culprit is hiding

I was seeing something similar and for me I think it had to do with the Power Setting for Ryzen in Windows 10. It was doing the constant fluctuations of the CPU from 3600 down to like 2000 MHZ. So what I did was set this setting, see if it helps you.

Go to Power and Sleep and if you have AMD Ryzen Balanced select it and click Change plan settings then on next screen pick Change advanced power settings. Go to Processor power management and click on the Minimum processor state and set to 100% so this way it never idles or changes from 3600, so more or less your Min and Max should be set to 100% instead of it constantly fluctuating trying to conserve power. This setting needed set even when all Power management is disabled in bios.

(Deus Ex: Mankind Divided audio lag & benchmark slowdown possible fix)


I've identified the issue I believe. I'd installed 17.40 Chipset drivers over Adrenaline 17.12.2 over 17.12.1, in that order as I recall. Then I found 17.12.2 Settings screen was not responding at all, and I reinstalled 17.12.1. This is when audio lag & lower benchmark scores reappeared.

The fix was to install 17.40 AMD chipset drivers again, audio desync disappeared and DX:MD benchmark score went back up 20fps. Install the chipset drivers last, whichever GPU driver you use!

Did you try sleep/resume and re-testing? I don't even have an AMD GPU and I have the same issue like I said in a few posts back. Reinstalled the chipset drivers.

Unfortunately this is a temporary fix. Might as well restart/shut down the system each time instead of disabling power saving.

I too only use Nvidia video but always install on all my systems since they are AMD processors and chipsets the chipset drivers.

Actually I never shutdown any of my computers. They all run 24/7 365. I also never use sleep or use any power management in any way. I always run this command on all my systems upon every Windows 10 Preview update. powercfg /hibernate off - this will give you several gig back on your drive.

It's a matter of preference. I prefer to not keep my system ON all the time (especially once I overclock it) and put it to SLEEP when I go to work or away from home. If I ever need it, I use Wake On Lan to resume and connect remotely.

So it's not applicable to this case. In short it seems that the latest BIOS update messes with the stability of the system once you use sleep and have to do a complete restart.

Is this normal on 3101? Overclocked to 3.9G, and Windows reporting over 4Ghz (averaging between 4.1-4.4)

Yeah. I've been noticing the same issue since I updated to 3008. I think it's a problem with the latest chipset drivers. CPU-Z and other software seems to be reporting it correctly. Can you confirm that on your system?

Also it seems that after resuming from sleep Window reports the clocks correctly again (even with the stability issues).

Take a look through the posts over on OCN.

You could start here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1624603/rog-crosshair-vi-overclocking-thread/27280#post_26355674

This series of posts sheds light on the problem of inaccurate and erratic sensor readings. There is much more information here should you take the time to read through the thread.

They are all Chinese manufactured - Gigabyte, MSI, ASUS so don't expect extraordinary software/BIOS support. They need to sell high volumes to make a profit. The fact that AMD is still tweaking the BIOS doesn't help. Had a similar issue once I switched to Gigabyte for my AMD FX 8350 with a standard Cooler Master 212 EVO. Had to continue using a BETA bios. Let's keep this civil and on point.

any notes on what Agesa 1.1.0.0 changes/does ?

on different forums i read that ram now works @ 3600 with no additional overclocking with 3110 can anyone confirm this please ?
