ROG CROSSHAIR VI EXTREME BIOS 7803
"01. Improve system performance.
02. Update AMD AM4 AGESA Combo PI V1 1.0.0.6

There is a fault with this BIOS causing 3b error on Boot = failure to initialise PCH
You Must enable CSM and boot into legacy mode = enabled in bios


Therefore I do not recommend anyone update till this is fixed, its a huge backward step and should be avoided



recommended BIOS is 7704

Why does our Crosshair VI Extreme motherboard not have an up to date chipset driver and AI Suite 3 on the support page? Does anyone actually work at Asus?

Also, it looks like Aura Sync is no longer supported. What is the last version so I can download it?

Who is the Wi-Fi manufacturer for this board? Can a more up to date driver be downloaded from their website?

7808 Released.

AGESA Combo PI v1 1.0.0.6

Not on the CPU support list, but this BIOS update should add support for the Ryzen 3600XT / 3800XT / 3900XT range.

I hope they fixed the cold boot issues, and the RAID Menu that disappeared from both bios, and boot up sequence

CSM has to be enabled on this BIOS in order to boot otherwise error code 3b , so we are now back to legacy boot no more UEFI.

Error code 3b = Post-Memory PCH initialization failed.
(fix this by enabling CSM boot (enabled))
so no more fast boot and the outdated legacy boot screen, also posssibly not even secure boot as i think that needs to have UEFI boot, I could be wrong on this last one though

NO UEFI NO SECURE BOOT.

therefore I will not be posting this BIOS release in the 1st page until this bug is looked at

please fix.

For now I'm just going to use the older bios. Hope its fixed soon.

replying to my self here. I managed to find a combination of setting to get the RAIDexpert2 to show up in the bios options, still not being able to get the RAID bios screen to show up before the post screen. it can be either a setting hidden so good or a bug
