My Machine: 13900K, 790 Hero, 32GB 7200 GSKILL kit
Just a FYI. This latest bios is not stable with XMP enabled for me. I had to roll back to 0816 where I run XMP tweaked with no issues. I updated Intel ME as well so I know that isn't the issue.
Z790 APEX 1203
G.SKILL F5-7000J3445G16Gx2 @ 8000MT CAS36
ME Firmware 18.104.22.1686
What have you tried to stabilise the memory kit if anything at all so far?
I haven't tried tweaking any timings or voltages as I'm more interested in playing Diablo IV atm. I'm not actively trying to get 1202 to be stable. I've had multiple ASUS boards and I always update the BIOS when a new one is available. I've never had issues before with XMP settings and I'm just assuming it's going to take some time to iron things out with the new chipset and DDR5. I haven't done any serious tweaking or overclocking since I upgraded from Coffee Lake last November. I couldn't even get XMP to work until 0816 was released for my board. My memory kit is GSKILL F5-7200J3445G16GX2-TZ5RK DDR5-7200 16GBx2. I'm using the built in mem test in the BIOS and letting it run overnight. I will say that 1202 was stable at default settings. I also tried every XMP setting on 1202 and they failed mem test barely 10 minutes in every time.
XMP has worked for me on every BIOS I've tried on this board till 1202. Stable for intensive workloads, stress tests (including two runs of memtest86), and long term use, with my longest uptime before restart on this rig being almost a month.
Definitely not bothering get it working with 1202 either. Not even remotely worth my time.
Is it this normal, after updating to the latest bios (including me) the bootlogo changed to a pure red rog logo?
