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

tried to update the bios for 6301 beta Bios for my mobo, it said reading failure. tried USB, it froze twice after resetting. So I tried to have mobo read it from the SSD, read failure. I am stumped....

long time reader of the forum and this thread. I saw your post and thought I would be able to help as I ran into the same problem. Not sure why but I was also unable to update to 6301. The way I got round this was to install 6201 first using the ez utility. I then was able to flash 6301.*

A word of warning, I have returned back to 6201 because I had the worst boot up issues since owning the board. With 6201 i’ve had stable boots. I went back a version by renaming the bios to C6H.cap*

I have a video about this on my YouTube channel Hlspwns world .**

Thanks! I got it figured and forgot to post an reply but bad news is.... during star trek online, pc freezes... every 5 dang minutes... so I'm really furious. So tomorrow I will roll back to 6201.... sadly with 6301 bios, ram still show 2133 speed, not 3333 as specified. 😞

web browsing etc, it runs fine. during gaming, forget it.

Would be great if the CH7 could also get a thread like this for bios updates, Beta updates etc...

When are going to see a new bios for the C6H? Seeing as other Asus AM4 platforms are getting new releases.

TIA

6302 is up

https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-CROSSHAIR-VI-HERO/HelpDesk_Download/

It's under Driver & Tools... Windows 10 64-bit.

If you go BIOS & Firmware, it still shows 6201

Notes are simply "Improve system stability"

I'm at work, so I can't test at the moment.

Waste of ****ing time.

Time to sell this POS system and go back to EVGA and Intel...

How does this have anything to do with it being an AMD system? This is Asus that is dropping the ball, and could very well do the same on their Intel boards.

The only take away I have from this thread... is that I am not buying Asus again. I bought my C6E as my first Asus board in a long, long time after having bad dealings with their customer support years ago. I was quite impressed with the board itself, but It will be my last one, ever.
