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

WTF ASUS 30/11/2018 C7H AGESA 1.0.0.6, 30/11/2018 C6H 6301 Elmor bios mod for 6302 AGESA 1.0.0.2c
I don’t understand what is going on. Both motherboards are the same, except for the chipset, these are not so drastic changes so as not to release a bios for it, or after leaving elmora you decided to score on your top mat a fee for which people gave $ 250+, 4 months what did you do ?? even the last bios was doing elmore

EVGA is the only MB company that i have had really good TS. However, they dont do AMD.

Ah, Gotcha. Fair enough.

Though you may be able to get a decent price for your Asus board to an Asus fan, and move to another manufacturer instead of dropping the platform altogether. I have never had an issue with Gigabyte's Customer Service and MSI seems to be on the ball with dropping software/firmware updates for their boards.

I just don't understand the naming and version-numbering scheme here. BIOS 3008 states AGESA 1071, while latest BIOS 6302 have AGESA 1002c? In my head that is going backwards? Or is it something I'm missing?

The AGESA numbering was re-set when we swapped to the ryzen 2xxx series, so 1.0.0.2c is newer than 1071.

It's confusing and annoying. Also completely outside of ASUS' control as AMD are the people releasing the AGESA revisions.

Ah, great... Thanks for clearing that up!

Hello! Is there any word yet on what motherboard chipset next year's Zen2 cpus will require? Any chance X370 will be supported?

From what I've understood current AM4 chipsets will be supported by newer CPUs until 4. gen. PCIe is out, or ~2020.

That is *if* Asus decides to do us the honour of giving C VI boards an update. AMD will support the socket, but board manufacturers can choose to stop updating at any point.

True, but the question I answered wasn't directly aimed at Asus compatability. I feel it was a general question 😃

And, if they don't, this will probably be my last board from Asus. (Unless next-gen. really doesn't work on former chipsets)
