ASUS B550 F-Gaming WIFI // BIOS Questions

Punterz
Level 7
Hallo,

1. Why was the BIOS 1002 removed for B550 F-Gaming? Have there been problems here? I have installed this version and would like to have some information here 😉 https://www.asus.com/de/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-B550-F-GAMING-WI-FI/HelpDesk_BIOS/

2.Why are the settings deleted after every BIOS update?
If I transfer settings from an old version to the new BIOS version, my computer does not start up anymore. So I have to adjust the settings manually after each update

3. Why is the mouse in BIOS so slow? 😉

4. I have PBO and ASUS Performance active from the beginning, is that normal? Find it uncool if OC settings are active directly from the factory.

Thanks

i1) was very supprised as well. they are back to 0805 since today. i have no problems with 1002 at all. my ram ist running perfect for the first time ever .

2) well my saved personal profile files are lost each time i update the bios. now with 1002 i found that my profiles are still there even after a cmos reset via jumper. bat taken out. after restarting, the profiles were still there. we see how it goes with the upcoming update. but even on my b350-f each time after a bios update the profiles are gone.

3) do you use gsync or freesync ? sometimes it does this. i got gsync and same issue.

4) asus performance boost (cpu holding high speed longer) was always disabled here. did 3-4 bios updates. only the option for prog. boost ala sinebench aso. is on auto.

i opend a threat here --> https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?119384-ROG-STRIX-B550-F-GAMING-issues/page2

just in case.
Orwell was an optimist

Thanks @celab

The mods can then please move the posts here into the thread?

- yes, I have FreeSync active.

- The BIOS settings are a real pain in the ass. Meanwhile I write everything down on a piece of paper to make sure I don't forget anything after the update. But sorry, even my old AsRock Pro 3 from 2012 has taken over the settings very easily.
In my opinion this should not happen.

- PBO: all right, weird, at least active for me.
greetings

Let me preface this by saying that the following is completely anecdotal... but:

I have a 3950x CPU and have been monitoring the temperatures (with coretemp) for about one month, a few hours each day, during normal use.

I noticed for the first time, yesterday, that the max temperature hit 105 deg C. Usually, the maximum is around 80 deg C.

I had updated the bios a couple of days prior (0805 to 1002). After noticing the 105 max temp, I went and looked for a bios update on the support page, and noticed that version 1002 had disappeared... Suffice to say, I immediately downgraded back to 0805.

As I said, this could be completely coincidental, or just a freak measurement, bug, whatever; but I'm not taking any chances.

ASUS TUF GAMING B550-PLUS and no problems with BIOS 805 or the missing 1002.
But I do not enable DOCP, prefer to use the settings from 1usmus DRAM Calculator for Ryzen

My Crucial Ballistix 2x16 3200MHz BL16G32C16U4R.M16FE1 is working perfect at 3733MHz.
The 1usmus Calculator is a wonderful tool!
