Does anyone know if there is a beta BIOS newer than L.146 for the X300M-STX motherboard yet? There is a known issue with booting linux, for any AMD chipset, which gives a series of lines analogous to "common_interrupt: 1.55 No irq handler for vector" in the log, though systems do continue to boot. It has been analysed and is a BIOS bug. I was told a new BIOS is being prepared but I have not seen any made available in recent weeks, and none yet on on the Asrock support page.

Mobo: X570 Aqua
CPU: 3950x
RAM: 4 x 8GB G,Skill Trident Z Royal F4-3600C14Q-32GTRSB
BIOS: 3.40


Unable to run basic 14-16-16-32-48-1T @3800 1:1:1 ratio as previously on 1.71 and 3.30 BIOS versions that are able run 14-15-12-26-38-1T @3800 1:1:1 with even extreme sub-timings. After signing into the Windows account, even during idle, would get random black screens with reboots.

Had to low speed down to 3600mhz 1:1:1

Board model: X570M Pro4
BIOS version: 3.40
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600X
RAM: 32Gb (4x8Gb) Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 3000 CL15 @ XMP

Notes:

AMD CBS > NBIO Common Options > SMU Common Option > Max Voltage Offset

This setting still does not function on BIOS v3.40. Changing from "Auto" to "100" does not limit max boost voltage at all. The voltage, temperature and benchmark scores stay the same no matter the option chosen.

I tried restoring BIOS defaults before testing it.

2.60 - Setting works with expected voltage, temperature and performance drop.
2.80 - Didn't test this BIOS version
2.90 - Setting is missing
3.00 - Setting does not work
3.40 - Setting does not work

Thanks

Board model: X570 Steel Legend Wifi
BIOS version: 3.60
CPU: 5800X
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (4 x 8GB) CMW32GX4M4D3600C18 (Per Thaiphoon they are Samsung B die)

Notes:

Just built the machine a few days ago and all seems well in general. Memory tests passed and gaming seems fine.

But, just like Zett who posted on here 04 Feb 2021 at 2:02am, entering to "Super IO Configuration" in UEFI causes freezing. Every single time. I did it 3 times just to make sure it wasn't a fluke. The board came with ver 3.30 and I know I was able to access in that version.

All other options seem fine so far, but I've really only messed with CPU and RAM settings.

Board: B550 Steel Legend
BIOS version: 1.90
CPU: 5900x
RAM: 2x16GB G.Skill B-Die@3733

All benchmarks dropped and no way i can get any core to boost above 4975MHz while 5025-5050 was easy on several cores with UEFI 1.80.
Using the same PBO settings and Curve that just run as expected in 1.80 but not 1.90.
It behaves as if the Curve Optimizer using negative values does nothing for the maximum boost clocks while it obviously does with 1.80.
Ryzen Master still shows the wrong value for VDDCR if set in UEFI -> OC Tweaker\External Voltage Settings

Board model: B550 Phantom Gaming 4
BIOS version: 1.8
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Gaming 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 BL2K8G32C16U4B

Notes: Board delivered w/ 1.4 BIOS, stable w/ Ryzen 5 3600 at default BIOS settings. Updated to 1.7, enabled XMP, system was flaky (flickering screen, black screen). Disabled XMP and manually set memory speed to 3200. Updated BIOS to 1.8, at the recommendation of Crucial tech support. Enabled XMP and system is stable, with voltage set by XMP to 1.35. I don't know if XMP under 1.7 BIOS set memory voltage up from default 1.2v (still feeling my way around UEFI and Ryzen/RAM specifics).

Conclusion: for this Crucial Ballistix RAM, BIOS version 1.8 and XMP appears stable.

Have the same problems with the same motherboard (X570 Steel Legend), also with BIOS version 3.60.

The most irritating is the freeze when entering the Super IO settings in BIOS. Have to reboot after that.

Also, the XMP setting at 1.4V and 4000 MHz does not work.

Board model: X570M Pro4
BIOS version: 3.40
CPU: 3900X
RAM: HyperX Fury 2x16GB DDR4 PC4-25600 HX432C16FB3K2/32

Notes: XMP profiles (3200/3000) doesn't work properly. Spontaneous restarts. Overclock it manually so hard and I can't get a stable system (Spontaneous reboots).
But it works on default frequency (2400).
And it worked correctly at a frequency of 3200 on old firmwares (2.x series).

Hello all. Hope you are all weel

For almost a year now the hardware combination of
Asrock X570 Aqua,
Ryzen 3950x (BIOS 3.40) and
Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4 x 8GB), DDR4-4600 Samsung (CL19-26-26-46)
(Powercolor 6900 xt liquid devil)
gives me severe headaches and i am having a really hard time to figure out whats the problem is.

Whatever BIOS settings i use i neither get the CPU clock beyond 4700Mhz nor the 32 GB memory anywhere near to 4600Mhz.
And certainly not both at the same time. And what is really annoying is that once the XMP2 Profile (1) selected leads to permanent reboots. For any reason the memory is locked at 2133Mhz.

Memory QVL (Vermeer) Compatibility list from Asrock.
DDR4 Corsair 5000 5000 8GB CMK16GX4M2Z5000C18 Ver:3.31 SPECTEK     
DDR4 Corsair 4866 8GB CMK16GX4M2Z4866C18 Ver:3.31 SPECTEK      
DDR4 Corsair 4400 4400 8GB CMK16GX4M2F4400C19 SS 2
DDR4 Corsair 4200 4000 8GB CMK64GX4M8X4200C19 ver4.31     
DDR4 Corsair 4133 4000 8GB CMK32GX4M4E4133C19R     
DDR4 Corsair 4133 8GB CMK64GX4M8X4133C19
DDR4 Corsair 4000 4000 8GB CMK16GX4M2Z4000C18 ver 3.31 Micron     
DDR4 Corsair 4000 8GB CMR16GX4M2F4000C19 ver4.31     
DDR4 Corsair 4000 3866 8GB CMK64GX4M8X4000C19
DDR4 Corsair 4000 4000 8GB CMK16GX4M2K4000C19 Samsung B-die      
DDR4 Corsair 4000 4000 8GB CMK32GX4M4K4000C19 SPETEC      
DDR4 Corsair 3800 3800 8GB CMK64GX4M8X3800C19 ver4.31      

The Corsair Support tested the functionality with only two bars and a very early BIOS version. The request to test again with 4 bars and a current BIOS version could not be granted because 2 more bars were not available. By the way: The 4 memory bars of 8GB (32GB) cost me 1000$.

Can someone here please thankfully tell me what the hell I am doing wrong. I have a wickedly expensive system here and I'm driving with the handbrake on.

And before I forget: Dear Asrock Team, I've been gaming for 40 years, and have built 20 rigs myself so far, and the Dsign of the Asrock X570 Aqua is absolutely fantastic. No question about it. But please don't ask me what I think of your BIOS. I can't remember ever seeing anything worse for $1000. And to use Doubler Chip to gernerate 14 power phases out of 7 is.......

Please don't ask me, because I could answer pretty badly for $1000.

The memory controller is on/in your 3950x .. Ryzen 3000 series generally don't go to far beyond 3600.. 3733 is what AMD considers optimal .. but, baby steps .. does your memory run at 3200 with fclk @ 1600£ ..if yeah .. try faster until you max out what the memory controller on your chip can do .. ideally you'd want to run your fclk (infinity fabric) at a 1:1 ratio .. with the RAM you are running, you can go for real tight timings at slower than XMP rated speeds for about the same performance.
