The ROG STRIX X370-F GAMING motherboard is "Ryzen 3000 Desktop ready" the problem is the current posted BIOS revisions of it have not been updated by ASUS to reflect counterparts nor all of the X470 and X570 motherboards.
The ROG STRIX 370-F GAMING is still under it's stock Warranty for those whom purchased it at final availability from retailers/etailers. Meaning it has not reached "End of Life".
Update the BIOS for it already! The Ryzen 3000 series is problematic and that's putting it nicely. The last listed BIOS revision is not even stable nor does 3000 work stable with RAM that is on the QVL.
The last BIOS also breaks shutdown completely. For pete's sake post an AGESA 22.214.171.124 version for ROG STRIX X370-F GAMING. I refuse to have to upgrade over laziness and apathy on behalf of ASUS.
Agreed. This is the main reason I haven't bought a 3000 series CPU yet. I mean even "Other" Motherboard Makers at least have a Beta BIOS/uEFI that have AGESA 126.96.36.199, and even though it is "BETA" it's stable. Are us X370 users just basically getting the shaft? Doesn't seem right for a product that is far from being EOL.
STILL no 188.8.131.52 BIOS for the STRIX X370-F GAMING mobo. This is ridiculous how long it's taking. The last BIOS was released SIX months ago. I'm definitely done buying Asus. Every other manufacturer at least has a beta available for their boards.

More reason to not give them money. There is all sorts of wonky stuff in the most recent BIOS for my board. For instance the Auto setting for ECC DRAM is equal to ENABLED. Why would that ever be enabled by default for a consumer board? Also, there are 4 different places to set AMD PBO. One menu has all 4 options and the others just 2 options. It doesn't appear all of them work nor am I sure which one overrides the others. Either way there should only be 1 menu for those settings.
