Hey guys, I have noticed a lot of you have been sharing your experiences with
BIOS updates and changes, improvements and bugs you have found. For that reason
I have decided to make a sticky thread that we can use to keep all this useful
info in one place.

Rules:

1. Only share info about BIOS versions you have tested.
2. Do not post questions asking for info on when new BIOS versions will be
released etc, keep it on topic.
3. Do not ask what BIOS version is best for your particular board/combo, make
your own thread for that or read the thread for the info you need.
4. Keep the thread clean and on point so it remains informative.

If this thread proves useful and stays on topic it could become an invaluable
resource for ASRock's tech support department.

Thank you all for sharing and keeping this community thriving

Board model: X470 Taichi
BIOS version: P3.90
CPU: R5 3600
RAM: Ballistix Sport LT CL-15 32GB (2x 16GB) 288-Pin dual rank BLS2K16G4D30AESC

Notes: Computer will not boot when I Push the power button. Lights, fans come on, then fans stop, lights stay on, no boot. I need to turn off then on the power supply switch, and eventually 2-6 tries the computer boots. Once, I had to reset bios. I built this yesterday.

This board came back from an RMA.

The non-boot sequence: When I push power button, lights come on, some fans turn then stop turning. Oddly, the rear exhaust fan is the only one that keeps spinning. Sometimes no fans, always the colored mb lights and power light come on.

In my experience, this seriously points to motherboard failure, especially with that one fan spinning and the rest stopping. I will replace the ram and try this again (this is known good working ram). Someone mentioned this same problem and suggested to boost the ram voltage. So, maybe this is a ram compatibility problem.

Notes: Enabled eco mode and NEW Dram low latency function. Seems 4.XX onwards the random bios restart bug have been solved.

The only problem i'm having which isn't a problem for me but may cause problems for new builders. On default Auto my SoC voltage is set to 1.2v which causes stuttering in videos be it mp4, avi and youtube and sound cracking.

Solution manual set SoC to 1.1v

BIOS version: 2.80
CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X
RAM: 16GB Gskill Trident Z Neo 3600 (F4-3600C16D-16GTZNC)

Notes:

Upon installing 2.80 bios, XMP profile no longer works and selecting it would cause the system to end up in an endless loop rebooting over and over with the CPU fan (Prism) to be run at max speed. Manually selecting 3600 Speed in BIOS cause the same issue. Reverting back to 2.6 resolves issue.

BIOS version: 3.10
CPU: 3600
RAM: G.Skill TridentZ Neo DDR4-3600 C16 DC (AMD) - 16GB (2x8)

Notes:
Updated BIOS in an attempt to solve cpu not boosting to advertised speeds. Still does not boost to 4,2 - but now previously working XMP 3600 profile results in machine not booting a few times until it reverts to lower speeds.

3600 memory still -kind of-works when set from Ryzen Master, but can no longer hit timings from before.

- The BIOS has really improved since P1.90
- BIOS/UEFI version P3.70 allowed this ram to work flawlessly and OC to DDR4-3200. (64GB)
- The BIOS option doesn't seem to allow memtest86 ecc error injection function to work
- It would be nice if the BIOS could use the onboard rgb as trouble shooting LEDs
- The online bios update was a nice feature, if they bring it back it would be nice to use it for the rgb firmware too
- Many ram options don't have any description for their function

Board model: X370 Taichi
BIOS version: P5.60 (latest Summit Ridge support)
CPU: Ryzen 7 1800X (3.6-4.0Ghz)
RAM: G.Skill Flare X 3200Mhz 32Gb (2x F4-3200C14D-16GFX)

Notes:
User Interface

CPU Fan 1 Setting - CPU Fan 1 Temp Source shows "Monitor M/B" and "Monitor CPU, however this should be "Monitor Tctrl" and "Monitor CPU"

Personally I do not trust the fan control at all and not sure what the fans react to

Bios upgrade performed nominal + flushed all previous settings.
Re-flash did not solve the issue.

Workaround:
- Set "Monitor CPU" manually to be safe
- Use Asrock Tuning Utility to set fan profiles

The rest of the build seems to run stable with CPU 3.6-4.0Ghz (AMD CBS + Manual both stable) and 32Gb of RAM running at a stable 3200Ghz which is as promised capabilities, however it does require some minor sanitized settings.
It would be nice to finally see a fully bugless BIOS for the X370 Taichi flagship after those years. Someone at Asrock Support promised once LOL

Apart from that CPU cooling control UI bug this build did not give me a single BSOD and performed as intended in my case, however the bug around cooling control murders all the other success.

Can't wait to see the Glory BIOS for the X370 Taichi

Board model: B450 Steel Legend
BIOS version: 3.40
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
RAM: 2x8GB Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3600 BL2K8G36C16U4W

Notes:

XMP does not work, period. The PC will fail to boot and the fans will run at full speed. I have to force it to shut down by holding the power button.

Turning the PC on again, the computer will try to train the memory 3 times before failing and setting the RAM speeds back to 2666MHz.


Downgrading back to 3.20 allows the XMP to work, but I get WHEA correctable errors in Windows.

A corrected hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Unknown Error Source
Error Type: Bus/Interconnect Error
Processor APIC ID: 0

The details view of this entry contains further information.

Lowering speeds to 3200 seems to remove all WHEA errors.

BIOS version:3.10
CPU:Ryzen 3600
RAM:Corsair CMK32GX4M2B3200C16 (2x16GB in A2/B2)

Notes: Would not stay at 3200, kept defaulting back to 2130. Used XMP settings, still defaulted back to 2130 after a long boot cycle

Solution: Ran Ryzen RAM Calculator and manually entered settings recommended: 16-18-18-18-36 at 1.36v. XMP recommended the same timings but a lower voltage at 1.35v. That added 0.01v made all the difference. It's been stable now for the last month and it boots to the Win10 screen in 21 seconds (with default settings).

I had the same Problem with my Steel Legend B550m. After Bios update to 1.20 the old ram timings for 3800 didn´t work.
Have you tried to set the procodt to 43.6, CAD to 60/20/20/24?
With this settings my pc is running at 3800 now.

Board model: x570 Phantom Gaming X
BIOS version: 3.40
CPU: Ryzen 7 3800X
RAM: 4x M378A1K43CB2-CTD

Problem 1:
I obtained the board 5 days ago with BIOS 1.70. I was unable to install windows. Would restart at "configuring devices 86%" and restart. After that, Windows would continue to just loop restart and never install.

I noticed SB_Temp in BIOS was 71C so I turned the board of and let it sit for a while. Started up after 2-3 hours to find SB_temp 70C in BIOS once again... The SB_Fan running at 4k RPM. Concluding this must be a BIOS error I update to 3.40.

I go into BIOS and try to find my SB_temp. Gone, vanished? (Does Asrock not want to people to know their product is poorly designed at runs way too hot at SB? It appears so) Now, I am stubborn. I try to install Windows, same problem as before.

install linux and check the sensors temp. Guess what I find in an idle Linux... 71C SB_Temp... SB_fan running at 4k RPM.

I read on the net that the Wi-Fi chip is buggy and windows won't work with it enabled.

Honestly, im baffled that such an expensive board has so many issues..

How do I get my purchased wifi to work with Windows and how do I get the SB_temp down from 71C? All other x570 boards run significantly lower... I am unwilling to invest in watercooling for a chipset that should have had adequate cooling solution on!

If I didnt run Linux and virtualized Windows with GPU passthrough I would never have gotten this board to work!

Notes: Previous BIOS 2.80 had errors, missing settings and I could only do XMP (3200mhz) or defaults of 2400mhz. BIOS 2.60 I could run my RAM at 3800mhz CAS 18 1.41v. Now, with BIOS 3.00, I can run the same settings I was running with BIOS 2.60.
Solution: With 3.00, whatever was buggered in 2.80 is now fixed

Earlier I had Partiot Viper Elite DDR4 2x8GB 3200MHz (PVE416G320C6KGY) on some strange Patriot chips, they didn't worked on XMP, only on 3000 MHz 14-16-16-16. G.Skill TridentZ 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3600MHz CL15 (F43600C15D16GTZ) bought a week ago didn't want to boot up at any configuration except 2133 MHz.

Notes:

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

This setting does not function on BIOS v3.00. 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

Thanks

couple things to try

up the voltage a bit .. I have read a lot of users saying Corsair RAM sometimes needs a bit more voltage to run them .. so try 1.375v or similar.

try setting memory manually to 3200 instead of XMP

make sure you have memory installed in slots A2/B2 if only 2 sticks

Under BIOS 3.50:
From time to time the PC won't boot properly with the fans at max speed way longer than usual and all my BIOS setting will be resetted.
XMP profile or setting the RAM to 3600Mhz works though.

Under BIOS 3.70 or 4.10:
If I use the XMP profile or set the frequency of my RAM to 3600Mhz (or any other frequency different that the default one), the PC won't boot and the fans will run at full speed (until I shut it down).

Updated from 2.80 to 3.00 and a lot of problems with the memory speed, suddenly the memory revert to JEDEC speed of 2400Mhz when power up the system. If I enter to BIOS and enable the XMP profile@3200Mhz it works normally and can keep the profile during some time, but after some days it reverts to the 2400Mhz.

I've downgraded the BIOS to the 2.80 version more than 2 weeks ago and no speed issues until today.

Something happens with the 3.80 BIOS version.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT
RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO CMW64GX4M2D3600C18

Notes: Issue no. 1: The RAM will not clock above 2166MHz. My ram is Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO CMW64GX4M2D3600C18 . Other users report XMP profiles working right. In my case if i use XMP profile 7/10 times it will not even post with 8d error code. When it posts and W10 Boots something really weird happens. It will run stable even benchmarks - stress tests at full on Prime95 and Aida64 (even with AMD Ryzen Master Auto OC) up to 2.5 hours tested on all scenarios with no errors. Then at random, it might be task manager or opening a project on Da Vinci Resolve 16 or even Windows Explorer that instantly shuts down the PC. No BSOD, just instant power off. Also tried changing RAM pairs, also lanes, also the other pair that i have available. I even used DRAM Calculator for Ryzen exported my RAM Timings from Thaiphoon Burner to see timings and import them manually on BIOS (for 3600C18). No luck at all.

I have the X570 Taichi on bios 3.60 with a Ryzen 3800X but it will not flash to 3.61 at any price -I have no issues but it keeps saying invalid file when i try to flash to 3.61 - I have a Ryzen 9 5900x on order - Should I be worried ?

because the processor is loaded, the board starts, the cpu and ram diodes are on and then after a few seconds it restarts, I tested on both bones. the previous CPU on this plate, the 3200G, works with these frame bones without fear, while on the b450 pro 4, the 5800x starts with these bones without fear. Faulty bios probably came out for this album

No longer have to force FLCK 1800 @ 3600 for Ram native spec.

P-STATE has drastically been improved, and no need to enter a manual core voltage offset to compensate when OCing. Auto vcore offset has improved.

PBO Enabled performance on 3950x Auto settings has improved with better voltage regulation.

Had some random reboots when under full load. Went back to XMP 3200 RAM timings with PBO on and seemed stable.

I replaced the 3700x with a 3800XT and 3600 on RAM, Infinity Fabric 1800 was a complete no-go .. reverted back to the 3.40 BIOS and 3600 RAM,IF 1800 booted and has been stable so far encoding videos and playing Hunt:Showdown.

Follow up from previous post. Ran into game crashes in COD MWF which was not an issue on the previous beta 1.71 settings. Apparently I had to up the CLDO VDDG CCD/IOD voltage by entering 1.0v from 0.950v to eliminate the in game crashes. If CCD and IOD is on auto it works perfectly fine also just at the cost of more voltage running at 1.1v with a negative offset.

just to report that version 1.80 (AGESA 1.1.0.0 patch C) has been rock solid for me so far. it even allows to run SOC manually @ 1,1 volts with XMP @ 3600 enabled just like version 1.20 did.

RAM: 2x16GB (BLS16G4D32AESB.M16FE)

UEFI update from 2.80 to 3.50 resulted in system continual random power downs within minutes of each other. Troubleshooting: I cut power to the mainboard and placed a jumper on the clear cmos jumper then loaded bios defaults. Set my XMP profile to what it was on 2.80 (which ran fine for many months without issue) however system continued to randomly power off / restart. Next, I downgraded to 3.31, performed all the same steps, however system was still not stable and same results. I reverted back to 2.80, set all settings consistent with 3.50 and 3.31 and no longer experience issues with random power downs and reboots. I would like to upgrade this board to utilize Ryzen 5000 processors while I have a 3600 installed (as believe this is the only way you can do it). Why are the UEFI updates causing such instability with my board when the settings / hardware are not changing between UEFI updates?

Guys I have the following config (also opened a topic for it, sorry):

Ryzen 5 1400(yeah the one that no one bought)
ASRock B450 Pro4

So, i'm using bios version P3.40 (as 3.50 was really broken,OC didn't even work with summit, so I managed to rollback to the P3.40) and I got an opportinity to get a 1600AF for only 58 bucks new. The problem is that the CPU support list says that this CPU is only supported with 3.90 BIOS and the P3.90 BIOS description says it's NOT RECOMENDED for summit, pinnacle or raven CPUS, afaik the 1600AF is a pinnacle CPU without its boosting features.

So, should I try using the 1600AF with the P3.40 BIOS or should I update it straight to the 3.90? Why this BIOS isn't recommended for pinnacle anyways?

Dear Sirs,

I have a very odd problem: with a 4 port PCI-E LAN card - Dell Intel I350-T4 QP Adapter the system takes an eternity to boot - more than 3 minutes for the initial BIOS startup. After boot everything works fine.
I flashed an older BIOS and found that with version 4.10 or older (3.90, 3.60) the problem does not appear.
Older BIOSes boot within a reasonable time and work perfectly.

Since newer BIOSes come with newer microcode I think I should use always the latest one.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Hello all. Hope you are all weel

For almost a year now the hardware combination of
Asrock X570 Aqua,

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.

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.

That's pretty much the whole problem, AMD needs to be more transparent with all
this. Board partners have to skate a fine line between upsetting their vendors (AMD/intel)
and upsetting their consumers. There is no perfect balance, someone will always
be angry. Many times when an obvious solution is not mentioned or explained by
a manufacturer's support staff it is simply because they are not allowed to.
AMD and Intel have stipulations and conditions for licensing their products.
If a piece of advice or explanation is in violation of those conditions, the
poor tech support person is not allowed to say it. This applies to all board partners.


To be fair to ASRock, they often get in trouble for putting their consumers first.

I can understand that. Nevertheless:
It must be clearly stated that a manufacturer who creates complex high-tech products for the consumer can not assume that one is an offspring of Einstein and can answer questions about the product himself. If the producer or support takes the liberty or is ordered not to answer specific questions normal mortals, then I don't need the product. Then they can keep the high-tech product among themselves.
What I'm saying is: as long as not dealing with quantum physics, I have to assume that the producer should then be smart and capable enough to strictly follow the principle of Keep it Simple, so as not to have to evade unpleasant questions from the consumer about compatibility when the product is released.
To keep a long story short: The design of the X570Aqua is simply awesome. So far so good. The BIOS is IMHO a disaster. And since I don't stare at the mobo all the time and struggle more with the BIOS, the overall concept is inadequate.
What I want to say: In my opinion, a producer of a 1000$ high-tech product should be able to create a BIOS interface that can satisfy the 1mV enthusiast up to 7000 Mhz on the one hand and also the butcher with 4 clicks up to the operating limits. Everything else simply has no future.


Please, correct me if I am wrong.

So what you are saying is:
You would like to see a simpler, more intuitive BIOS interface.

While I agree, there is a broad spectrum of users from completely ignorant all the
way to extreme enthusiasts that actually want more options opened up, you need
to bare in mind that the vast majority of the confusing elements are RAM related.
In many cases users simply can't get their rated performance out of the system
without these advanced options. The KISS solution would be to enable XMP and go.
If it doesn't work, return the RAM and buy a different kit/model. Repeat till it
works. The simple truth is that the system is only required to operate at the
frequency supported by the CPU's IMC. Anything beyond that is technically an
overclock.

RAM manufacturers have confused the issue with XMP. Most people today assume that
XMP = default speed for that RAM. It does not, it is an extreme profile the RAM
manufacturer expects will work on most systems but they do not
guarantee it.

All that said, I fully agree that the BIOS can be a daunting thing to work with,
particularly when settings are poorly explained and duplicated all over the place.
ASRock used to have a simple UEFI screen that you would see by default
but many users hated it and it got scrapped. Personally, I like ASRock's BIOS
implementation, I appreciate how much they leave exposed for the curious and
the experienced to play with. If it wasn't for RAM issues on AMD, I doubt many
people would complain. Being forced to search for a dozen or more settings just
to get your RAM to work at or near it's XMP rating is a pain, no one will deny
this.

I for one would love to see manufacturers implement a one click option that enables
the IMC's rated frequency on any RAM installed, as an alternative to XMP using
minimalistic timings and voltages that are likely to work on just about any kit.

With DDR5 on the horizon now, this will all hopefully become moot soon. One would
hope everyone learned their lesson from the DDR4 fiasco.

Intuitive....that's the word I was looking for. And that says it all.
This mobo in particular truly would deserve it.   
Ok, .....we are strictly talking about BIOS UI's.
Imo ...how good a BIOS UI is can not depend on how familiar you, me or all others are to that manufacturer's design. Thousends of different BIOSes call the same thing with different names, for example the uncore (L3 cache of the CPU) frequency can also be called mesh frequency and ring frequency. So how do i know and Asrock uses douzens of abbreviations and the up-popping hint box does not tell me a lot.
Was it such a big problem to built a DUAL BIOS UI (Pro/Non-Pro) for an 1000$ Mobo that satisfies both the 24/7 enthusiast and also the user who works from 9 to 5£ Was it really such a big problem to implement within the BIOS UI a unique Built In Test Equipment or Feature or Benchmark that is capable of delivering base, best or initial OC settings£
To be fair: In terms of flexibility this UI is a milestone but far from being transparent , far from easy to use, far from being easy to understand, far from easy navigation and far from being easy on the eyes for someone like me who has seen and worked with more than 20 different BIOS UI´s. It is asking too much for me.

i'm on x470TU + 3950x my cpu is capped at 3733 and yes i can run my kits 3733 cl 14 on current 470 bios it didn't fare well on 460 (3600 cl 14) and 462 3200 (cl 14)

i'm guessing your main problem is surely using 4 sticks of ram its really hard on the imc

Board model: X570 Taichi Razer Edition
BIOS version: BETA 1.42
CPU: Ryzen 5950x
RAM: 32Gb (4x8Gb)G.Skillz Trident Z Neo 3600mhz CL14 (Samsung)

Notes: The above post is right regarding the 4 DIMMS and OCing. I can't get the 4 of these above 3800 when fully installed. Running 2x8 at a time though gives me significantly more overclocking room, but I have yet to find a combination that gives more consistent performance than its XMP of 3600 @ CL14 with slightly tightened subtimings. I just want it stable so I can play with my 16 cores lol ;)

This board and I had a rocky start to our relationship for the first few days. She would not, under any circumstance, acknowledge the existence my NVME drives regardless of slot placement or correct BIOS settings (end result: I bought a new 970 Evo Plus, turned off CSM completely, booted in under Win10 USB drive and installed Windows, which then correctly identified all my drives without me having to wipe my system; even after swapping CSM settings back to their factory setting. I spent extra $, so its a good thing this board has a 3rd M.2 slot and my GPU covers up the PCIE slot that gets shut off by the use of M.2_3)

Aside from that, it's really been great in terms of its power delivery and thermal mitigation. I shelled out $400 for this mostly for its VRM capabilities, tolerating the RGB aspect only inasmuch as it doesn't threaten my temperatures.

That said, ASRock: I really appreciate the BETA release with the AGESA update. I am doing really perverse and unspeakable things to this processor's curves via the UEFI alone as well as with the currently in-development Clocktuner utility by 1usmus. Most of the other board manufacturers have recently released a full update for their boards...any idea when we can expect one for the Taichi Razer£ I'm reluctant to do anything too extreme with a BETA release; as per your company's multiple warnings, but I wanna go play with the other kids. =(

ThreeDee referred to the on-chip controller, which limits the clock. I have now come to terms with this. I ran my memory through several test series with different BIOS versions and reached the 4000Mhz mark. For stability reasons, I chosed 3833Mhz with the current BIOS 3.4.
If Asrock is anything to go by, it delivers a masterpiece BIOS for the X570aqua. But I don't expect that much enthusiasm.

After prolonged testing, I have to say that it's still not right. The sound crackles in the games. When watching youtube, the sound is fine. During gaming, the computer sometimes restarts. VDDCR_SOC Voltage is always set to fixed. So we have another scum in line.

I think it might be RAM related, I still didn't try it without XMP.

Yet it would be sthg to be solved if it's the case since with the older BIOS up to the 1.10 version, I have no problem at all enabling XMP with my PC functioning without hassle.

RAM: 2 x 8GB Crucial/Micron BLE8G4D36BEEAK.M8FE1 Ballistix Elite 3600MHz CL16

Notes:

When you select any memory speed outside the specifications of your processor, the CPU VDDCR_SOC Voltage is set to 1.1V and any change to this value will not take effect. Therefore, "memory overclocking" cannot be used. Audio cracking in games has been resolved by clearing CMOS.

It's tragic, the only usable versions were 2.60 from May 7, 2020 and 3.0 from September 2, 2020, two versions out of sixteen released.

I will be thinking a lot if the next motherboard will be from ASRock.

BIOS version: 3.50
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600X
RAM: 32Gb (4x8Gb) Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 3000 CL15 @ XMP

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

Setting Description: "Limit maximum CPU voltage for compact coolers, small form factor, or performance tuning."

This setting still does not function on BIOS v3.50. 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
2.90 - Setting is missing
3.00 - Setting does not work
3.40 - Setting does not work
3.50 - Setting does not work

I hope this can eventually be fixed as I find it quite useful. The very top of the boost range is quite inefficient and uses a lot of volts for little performance. This setting constrains the boost slightly, which lowers temperature and fan noise in a small case quite a bit, but doesn't hurt performance that much.

Thanks

I have the same MB but my RAM kit is CMK64GX4M2E3200C16 2x32GB which is not the on QVL.

With the latest BIOS, my PC resets (like power off then on) in the first 5 minutes when I start it up from off or when I restart it from windows. It happens like in 4 out of 5 startups. If it does not reset in the first 5 minutes, it will continue to run stable for a few days until I shut it down or restart it from Windows.

Yeap is more or less the same. The thing is that I've tested my RAM and they have no issues and right now I'm in BIOS P.1.10 and everything works fine, not a single re start out of nothing, nor any problem with cold boots.

I'm starting to think that might be more CPU related, like if some new features doesn't play well with my 3900x.

This forum is incredibly dead, not a single Official rep that might help. Did you tried any other way to contact Asrock about it?

BTW like you, my restarts or problems with booting do not leave any BSOD data, bar the windows Event Viewer one, but Bluescreenview, or similar software do not grab any detail.

My CPU is 3950X. But I believe it is more likely related to RAM (more specifically the XMP setting). The PC has no problem when running at default 2166MHz @1.2V but unstable when running at XMP 3200MHz @1.35V.

I did email ASRock to ask for help, thinking they may give me some custom settings to try like someone mentioned in other forums. But no, they just gave me some cut and paste reply asking me to try a list of things that I have already tried before emailing them.

Actually I just bought this ASRock to replace my dead Asus ROG Strix. At the time of writing, I have already switched back to Asus ROG Strix I just received from RMA. I think I will just give up the ASRock after 2 weeks of hassle.

I dunno beecause even without XMP I had some issues. Bizarre stuff, so far I really liked the board but these issues with new BIOSes are annoying. Maybe at some point I'll try a new kit of RAM, but I think I'll stick to the old BIOS, not precisly my best time in terms of finances so I do not have many choices. Good luck with the new Asus mobo man! and thanks for the help.

2) missung "CPU Core Ratio" (for all cores, without voltage change)
3) no separate "SATA Hot Plug" configuration for each device, only common for all devices (very inconvenient when one internal SATA HDD drive is always installed and an external SATA HDD drive is often connected)

Board model: B450M-HDV R4.0
BIOS version: 4.6
CPU: Picasso APU
RAM: 16

Notes:

4.6 has much improved over vendor-delivered 3.7 version, e.g. 1 mouse failed on me.

Users should be aware that a power cycle can take 40 seconds during which they might think that the mainboard has "frozen". Just be patient and wait until power-cycle does finish eventually!

UEFI explicitly states that - while in superfast boot mode - the user has to "clear CMOS" to force entry into UEFI menu in case of operating system not allowing to go to UEFI menu. Or in case of OS crash / BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death in MS OS).

Under Linux, I found this to be wrong. The DELete key even now will summon the UEFI menu, contrary to what UEFI itself states.

B450 boards have HDMI sound device and AC97 sound device.

in UEFI those 2 sound devices are found in separate submenus.

Ideally, both sound devices should be in the same submenu to ease control of the sound setup.
