ASUS ROG Stric SCAR 17 G733 (2023) BIOS Downgrade troubles and massive throttle problems

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to downgrade the BIOS from 329 back to 316. 

 

Any time I try, EZ Flash 3 tells me that it's not a valid BIOS file. I also tried Winflash. I tried modifying the driver in device manager via the firmware. I redownloaded the BIOS file numerous times, but only the latest 329 file works for updating 😞

 

The reason I want to revert to Bios 316, is that back then I had no throttle issues. Currently, my CPU will often throttle down to 1.5Ghz or even less.

It seems to be impossible to roll back to an older BIOS version...

I can confirm It's not a bios issue , 

I was having the same issue with my cpu temp always throttle .

I manage to fixed it by repaste the cpu and this is a must to do , I got 20 degrees less temps and more wattage to my cpu now .

EZ Flash 3 always tells me "Selected file is not a proper bios".

Only with the latest 329 Bios it completes the update. There seems to really be no way to rollback...

I hawe same setup like u i dont think it is bios related.

I updated to 329 and it works like charm,oposite to your problems mine temps and fan speed are lower.Cherrs

Thanks for letting me know.

Yeah, i'm not sure what it is.

I have extreme throttle issues. 

If I only stress the GPU (Furmark), all is ok. GPU downclocks slightly to 1.7-1.8Ghz from 2Ghz Boost clock.

But if I then put stress on the CPU at the same time (Prime95), the CPU downclocks to 0.5Ghz/500mhz.

Same happens in demanding video games. (Video games stress both CPU and GPU).

This is really unsustainable.
