i had some audio dropouts from sound blaster z..after weeks i finally managed to resolve it
it was causing pci-e x1 slots
moving it to pci-e x16 (which is connected to cpu) resolved it
buuuut now when i starting up pc...during post i hear some beeps with d7 debug code, post is working (d7 is missing keyboard/mouse) tho key/mouse is working fine
help? :)

edit: its 5 short beeps which should be: "The system CPU has failed"
pc is running fine btw

I wish all the different BIOS versions had proper release notes. It's hard to judge whether an upgrade is worth the risk, when different versions of the BIOS can even have the same description. Also, "enhance the system compatibility" is too vague for my taste. I'd like to know how it has been enhanced. Also a list on known issues - there are bound to be some - would be nice.

Honestly, I am not sure even the manufacturers know all the details with AGESA. A lot of the time it seems to be exactly that "enhanced system compatibility" for seemingly random RAM models and components. Listing exactly which ones would be nice but I am not sure AMD provides these details. As I said in my last post, AMD is clearly playing catch-up and as a result, cutting corners to get there faster. Fortunately Ryzen is a brilliant addition to their product stack and worth the teething problems. It sucks to have to RMA your board for a bad flash but at least there are no issues in doing so. I browse most of the manufacturer forums and ASRock is not alone in the bricked board department by any means, in fact, some manufacturers (not getting into names) are being hit a lot harder.

Is it possible to downgrade back to the original 3.4 BIOS?

If so, can you go direct, or do you need to go via the bridging BIOS?

I did directly in my KIller SLI and worked without a problem.

Tried new BIOS 4.50 and returned to 3.10. With 4.50 RAM OC to XPM 3200 works fine and I even managed to post 3333, but there is absolutely no stability (BSODs, random reboots, crahes) with same timings and frequency which worked fine with 3.10 BIOS

ASRock Gaming k4 x370 here.. going to try revert to 3.4 too. 

No XMP profiles work on 4.5, so my Patriot 32GB DDR3200 is stuck at 2132 (stock speed).
Manually setting AMD CBS timings dont save or apply (and I did set "OC Switch" to AMD CBS from ASRock). 


Completely crap bios, very annoyed, will likely ditch this board as its been terrible with both sets of DDR4 I tried (both on compatible lists).
