Please note that in order to have this BIOS update fix the sensor issues, you need to only use software which relies on our new interface. I'll try to compile a list of what's safe at a later time.

I'm looking into the issues with graphics cards only running at x8, got nothing concrete yet.

I just renamed by right clicking rename in windows and flashed fine.

Just recently upgraded bios to 2304. I was able to achieve the same CPU and memory OC, 4.2 GHz and 3400 MHz, I had before the update.

Hi guys, i read an article that was saying another mobo manifacturer enabled PCI gen 4 on some x470 mobos, i was asking myself, Is Asus going to enable PCI gen 4 on some mobos as well? I would flash the BIOS but i'm using iCue and last time i updated my PC went crazy.

@Greg - Asus gives you plenty of hours of fun! Why worry about getting a stable OC when the factory settings won't even work? Asus makes things screwed to help us all improve our trouble shooting skills, while understanding that we will never truly be happy in life with material goods...

Since launch the BIOS have been wonky...and always a comprimise. One thing gets fixed while breaking another. This forces you to prioritize and make hard choices about what you can sacrifice. All valuable life skills courtesy of Asus.
None of my onboarding headers worker after one of the bios updates last year - Corsair AIO, Corsair PSU, EVGA case, or NZXT internal USB 2.0 hub controller. After sending my motherboard in to be repaired and getting it back two months later, i still had the same issue and began seeing comments from others about the BIOS being the issue - not hardware.

Since then, my case now seems to work *most* of the time - though USB devices seem to disconnect and reconnect even when none are plugged in.

Corsair still doesn't work in terms of USB onboard. Instead I grabbed a couple USB cables with Type A end and plugged them right into the normal USB ports (my case has a vertical GPU cutout I run cables through to go outside of the case).

Asus' AISuite3 breaks too many program, doesn't keep settings, wants me to retest my fans setup every other day, and cant detect my AIO connected to the AIO header. And when I try to use Fan Xpert, it doesn't detect Corsair ML140 fans connected to the Asus fan extender card...so I bought Noctuas. They detect but cant be adjusted.. And then it crashes my computer while retesting the fans which haven't changed since the past 6 times Fan Xpert lost the plot. So I tried other brands - same result seems strange I got literally 26 bad fans in a row and not a single one this motherboard will play nicely with via Fan Xpert.

I tried to live with AISuite3, but it is just terrible for stability and overall mental health. Without AISuite, I can run Corsair iCUE software which will detect Corsair devices (admittedly via ghetto'd USB cables running out onto the back of the I/O), as EVGA also likes to have buggy software for fans, my cases controller is uncontrolled..

So I got a couple Noctua triple fan controllers, ran a few splitters as well, and can deal up/down all push on one knob amd all pull on the other.

Is it as convenient?
No.

Elegant? Nope.

Cost effective?
\cry

But it works perfectly - which AISuite most certainly does not. Asus shouldn't be able to even claim this as a feature as it is most certainly a bug.

Now if they decide to get the USB headers working, my motherboard would be fully operational just in time for the next generation of AMD CPU's to be released....oh that means Asus has new MB too? Frick...this thing will never get fixed.....

When you had fans plugged into motherboard, did you detect & calibrate them in the bios? Fans on splitters often wont work with PWM and need to be set to DC in the bios instead, then they will work well together. All digital (PWM) fans are a bit different, running them on splitters means the MB can't properly sense the RPM as there is more than 1 signal.

I've never had any of the other problems you mention. AISuite has run really well for me for the last 4 years. It's not AISuite that's incompatible, it tends to be other software which does not conform to ASUS WMI properly, though that is pretty much fixed now as well.

My ML120 and later ML240 worked very well connected to the MB, as well as my Corsair RM850.

If you have the latest bios and all your software (including AISuite) is the most up to date version, you should have little problem. Even still, use monitoring s/w applications 1 at a time - 2 programs trying to measure everything in real-time, is asking for trouble!

Last, you don't want AISuite, or any other s/w for that matter, to set your bios settings from Windows, it would be a security nightmare, that is why settings are not preserved. The settings, like in TPU, are use for testing, so you don't have to reboot every time you change one setting. It's brilliant for getting voltages right.

I can also report all USB headers working as they should. If none of the above helps, you need to exchange your board, but I can't believe it's that bad.

Which bios did you update to ? Which bios were you running?

I forget which version it was but prior to the current version my memory was stable at its rated speed of 3200, Now it refuses to go higher than 2933, I tested it in my girlfriends Intel build and it runs perfectly at 3200MHz, So whatever Asus did they broke something as per usual because even going back to a prior version doesn't fix the issue.

It's about time for a new bios for Crosshair VII, current bios is only AGESA 0.0.7.2.A meaning Beta-status. The Prime and the F is already on AGESA 1.0.0.2 which is release status bioses, also the AGESA 1.0.0.2-based 5007 bios for those boards works very well. Stable and producing great benchmarks on the 2700X. MSI is already on AGESA 1.0.0.3.

Crosshair VII has much better hardware, it's silly it's behind on bios releases.

Completely agree. It's only 1 week until the Ryzen 3000 releases begin.

Also, those other boards have gotten the new extra PBO boost feature, 0-200MHZ+. Still missing in the CH7 bios. The absurd outcome if Asus doesn't release a new CH7 bios is, my Prime Pro may produce higher performance than my CH7 with Ryzen 3000(and get cooked in the process)...

The new boost feature works on your current cpu?
