how good are these ... incredible value when they were under $119 a while back
New bios coming out for X570 boards in Jan/Feb;
Win10 s0i3 support
Stability tuning for 1800-2000MHz FCLK (OC)
Support for passive X570 motherboards
General stability improvements
wtf is 'passive X570 motherboards'... and why would they need bios support? Automated thermal management of the pcie io die with pcie speeds slowing if too hot to avoid losing data?
I'd guess this ^
Yeah they're great, I got this 32GB kit for $229 in mid 2019 which was less than half the price of b-die at the time, has done me well through Zen2 and now with Zen3.
Get a b-die kit mate (eg 3600c14d-32gtzn) mine are 8gb*4 single rank set, might have difficulties to achieve 4000 c14 with 4 sticks lol, will try to lower that "scl" timings haha, 188.8.131.52 is awesome
So, asked Scorptec for an update on my 5950x ... They just link you to a page they claim to keep updated but haven't updated since November 18th ...
Where is the transparency?
Yeah but your CAS is currently 18, why not 16?
in the asus website under my account theres "application status" which i think is where you have to watch for any movement at the station. waiting on mine as well, trying to be restrained with only one page refresh a day
watching the ram tuning with interest, i only have a set of 2x8 c14 3200 flarex so some 32gb kit is in my future down the track i think....
Will be interesting to see if the new AGESA helps pushing ram speeds or not on my setup. 1900s my limit currently on 184.108.40.206.
Asus pulled the AGESA 220.127.116.11 bios from their website, no idea why, but glad I didn't rush into that one.
After all the bullshit trying to find a solid bios when I first got this chip, I'm reluctant to change unless there's a damn good reason. hah
Well I don't know exactly why, but I do know that after putting it on my mobo my 5ghz OC was suddenly no longer stable.
I normally manual overclock but I'm trying out the DOS with a -0.05 offset Vcore in a Asus Dark Hero at the moment.
I think it's pretty cool to set an all core clock and then at low amps get quite an increase in single core.
All core 4.7/4.65Ghz single core 5.05Ghz
I haven't used The ClockTuner from 1usmus and not sure if that with pbo is similar.

clocktuner won't support zen3 until later this month
After an issue with reverting BIOS with Gigabyte's Sandy Bridge E platform I rarely use Beta BIOSs unless plenty of others have tested it for days at least. Gigabyte also released a beta BIOS last year that was taken down quickly after a few users had their CPUs destroyed through it.
I also never buy Gigabyte any more, for anything!
I think the page is being updated, just not the date stamp on the page itself - if you look at the fulfillment dates for each product line, the 5800x is dated after the page date stamp. The same thing is happening with the RTX 30 series page - I've got a close eye on that one, and the page is absolutely updating even though the date stamp on the page is not.
New one on the website now for both AU and USA:
Version 3102 Beta Version
2021/01/06 20.38 MBytes
ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO(WI-FI) BIOS 3102
Update AMD AM4 AGESA V2 PI 18.104.22.168.
Improve ReSize Bar function
Improve RAID function
Improve system performance and compatibility
Heh, I jumped through enough hoops finding a stable bios for this board.
If it's a beta, it's a beta for a reason. Asus are garbage when it comes to software, if even they don't think its stable, it's really not stable. hah
I thought once you overclock a Zen CPU, it locks the frequency to all cores?
How are yours different, what am i missing?
BIOS UPDATE: 1602
ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING BIOS 1602
"Update AMD AM4 AGESA V2 PI 22.214.171.124."
Least all the other companies are doing beta BIOS's in stages. MSI are just updating the same download link, still no stable BIOS since 126.96.36.199 Patch C .
Evening fellow members.
What type of cooling would be sufficient to cool a 5900x?
Would a 240 aio water kit be OK or 360... or custom?
