Based on what I've read, those voltage readings aren't necessarily correct even regarding the magnitude of changes in the voltage. In other words, the actual voltage may be something like 1.525V on average and change between 1.523 and 1.526. Or then it might be 1.472 on average and change between 1.460 and 1.490. If you suspect there is an issue, you might want to actually measure the voltages yourself.

So we need a fixed UEFI with up to date ROMs. ASRock can you do that for an really expensive board?!

ASRock can deliver... but the good days for AMD are gone (for now).

So, we have to mod them for our-self (for now).

For now I am still in warranty and dont want to mess around with it ;)

It would be nice if they would release it as beta on her website.

Anyway is an real ASR guy here active in the forum or shall we spam the support with the request?

Cheers.

Flashing the BIOS does not void the warranty.

Replacing the EEPROM is easy and ASRock will provide You a new one
if ever needed (even after the warranty period).

But You can flash the modded UEFI, it's safe to use.

Anyway I would like to get it from ASRock anyway. Did you modified anything else or only the ROMs?

It works like this:
1. Mailing ASRock TSD
2. Waiting for 7-14 days for the EEPROM.

I just modified the ROM, the board is "vanilla" from the hardware perspective.

The only physical mod the board needs is removing the decorative covers to the mosfet/NB heatsinks.  They have mesh but the "glue" holding them in place is actually a solid layer in many places that prevents airflow from getting through the mesh.

Personally, I would do that, but I like the look of the decorative covers.

Still, I wish that the PCI-e slots are hard-coated with a metal shell, to prevent breaking
when using a top-gear GPU on a workbench and/or in a case.
