Gave a try to the "newest" Z490 bios, 2403, which has been released as beta since october 2021, and uploaded as official on Asus's website months later. Typical Asus.
2x16 DDR4 @4000MHz+ is a miss using 10th, but this was in a way expected, as the highly incompetent Asus "tehcnicians" broke the stuff focusing on the crappy Rocket Lake.
The most annoying thing is that the TPM option stays always ON, even if is set off, after restart saving the choice of this feature is purely ignored, the TPM is on again.
Why it was decided that this option should be on all the time?
I don't think this bios "improves system performance and compatibility, system stability, and DRAM compatibility" as advertised, at least not for 10th I guess...
It's just FUBAR for 10th.
EC and Firmware updated.
I think I'll go back to 1003, since the incompetent Asus "technicians" seem to NOT care at ALL about CML anymore, as Z490 was intended to work with.
1003 vs 2403
