What is the best BIOS to run at the moment. I am currently on 1002 which i downloaded from the main drivers page.
The numbers are slightly confusing but am I correct that 0083 is actually the newest beta bios? Should I try this one?
I have an R7 1700 and currently I can only reach 3.7 Ghz at 1.3 volts on the stock wraith spire cooler. (I can perhaps do lower volts but didn't try) I could not get 3.8 Ghz without bumping voltage over 1.32 which was getting too hot. So I have placed an order for a coolermaster hyper 212x as an intermediate step until i put in a custom WC loop sometime in the next month or so.
I have also been having some cold boot issues with my memory which is G.SKILL F4-3600C16D-16GTZR 16 GB
I got it to run at 3402 Mhz with the following settings but it has issues with cold boot and I need to reset CMOS on cold boot.
CPU Ratio: 32
SOC Voltage 1.1
DRAM Voltage 1.35
1.8V PLL: 1.9v
Timings 16 17 17 17 48
DRAM Vboot 1.35v
I got it to cold boot last night at 2666 Mhz with the settings below but it failed a few times when starting it up this morning before it finally posted.
DRAM Voltage: 1.35
Timings 14 14 14 34
I have been reading up that BCLK overclock will cause issues with M.2 SSDs (I have one on order) so I may have to decide between BCLK overclock or NVME SSD
