I'd stick to P3.70 with "Update AMD AGESA Combo-AM4 1.0.0.4 Patch B" if you need those memory OC options with the Zen2 CPU. With P4.20 you can flashback to P3.70 if needed. The UEFI/BIOS is much better in P3.70. If you do up your BIOS version install the updated chipset drivers from AMD first before you flash and make sure your running at least Windows 10 ver1909.

I had a lengthy newegg review with instructions how I updated hassle free but it is not listed anymore. I copied my instructions below and updated them from when I was running a 3800x. The 3800x did just fine with air cooling so 3700x should be no problem but for 3950x you really should get the EK monoblock or heat can be a problem with the VRM's.

Upgrading to AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 8-Core (16 thread) 3.9 GHz (4.5 GHz Max Boost)
- Before swapping CPU:
- Reset to BIOS defaults, save, reboot
- If you have a BIOS/UEFI older than P1.90 update to P1.90 first!
- Be sure to update to BIOS/UEFI version P3.70 (minimum).
- Install new AMD chipset drivers and update Ryzen Master
- Swap CPU
- After swapping CPU:
- It is normal to have to wait some time for the motherboard to detect the new processor and readjust before posting. (potentially multiple reboots)
- Reset to BIOS to defaults again, save, reboot
- Do not use any pre-saved BIOS/UEFI profiles with your older processor. Save over top any existing profiles you had to avoid loading any incompatible settings you had with your prior processor.
- Do not panic when you see the voltages after your new 3000 series CPU is installed. Google "the_final_word_on_idle_voltages_for_3rd_gen_ryzen" and read the article there to understand what is happening. It is normal and related to core boosting behavior.

Hope this helps. I think the master is EOL now, I'd start grabbing a copy of the BIOS from the site in case the page is taken down. The Master SLI/ac page is no longer available.


Thanks bro

Found it here https://asrock.com/MB/AMD/X470%20Master%20SLIac/index.asp#BIOS and it looks like the BIOS is the same as the x470 Master SLI.
