Hi everyone,

I just wanted to share my initial experience with this Asus motherboard and the AMD x370 chipset platform. I recently decided to invested in AMD again for my CPU power needs: so I got me 1800x CPU, G.SKILL Flare X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3200 (PC4 25600) AMD X370 F4-3200C14D-16GFX, Zotac Nvidia 1080 Amp edition, NZXT water cooler, EVGA 1K PSU, Corsair Full case tower & bunch of SSD's

I previously owned an Intel platform Z87+4770k+AMD 290 GPU, 2x 8GB Crucial Ballistic ddr3, and it served me very well since October 2013<<

Anyway, I've had the single worst experience for the past week n half with my new build. I purhcased an ASSrock X370 Taichi and my chin hair literally turned gray due to the stress/frustration it caused me. The motherboard by far has the worst bios you can find and they are doing nothing about it. I know all X370's had their troubles in the begging but that mobo has been out since the birth of 1800x and you'd think they'll be on top of it by now. If I hadn't done Cinebench and CPU-Z benches i wouldn't have discovered that half of my cpu cores weren't working. My Cinebech/cpu-z scores were that of a 4790k as the motherboard's bios is still plagued by p-state/voltage issues. During full load all 8 cores would throttle down to 550Mhz and Cinebench would take 2x to complete. My games would also crash to black screen, monitor would go to stand by 5min after playing, especially GTA V and BF1 and debug code would show "00"<<

I went back to Microcenter and got me this Asus motherboard and i worked perfectly right out of the box. No crashes, perfect scores in cinebech/cpu-z, all my cores are utilizing as designed by AMD. Thank you ASUS for your superior work and attention to detail. I would NEVER invest in an ASSrock motherboard.

Try MSI X99 mate worse XP i had with any motherboards EVER biggrin.gif
Asrocks's X99 was better in every way

Or... you can add it yourselves via Typhoon Burner (you'd have to buy licence for a year first to be able to use that feature)
Look in the Typhoon database (SPD browser under the Tools-menu) if it has the XMP profile for your kit... if not... contact your vendor/reseller to mail it to you so you can integrate it yourselves

Is it supposed to make it perform better? It's an E die and I got it to 3200mhz at rated speeds.

I did read the op here, and the ryzen ddr4 24/7 stability thread. Doesn't make me an expert, I never overclocked ram before ryzen.

Dont want to buy and install Windows just for that ;(

I don't know what you want - single color or no freaking lights at all - if no lishts at all you can't disable them in BIOS

One small green light will be always on - elmor already confirmed that somewhere here on in ASUS forum.


Cold boot odysey part II.
Today I had worst day so far - 3 cycles of 5 attempts each failed. Even for 3200 "safe". Room temp was 23C so not so low.
I'm starting to believe Ryzen have burn-in time and changes its best settings over time (all my voltages are in safe, sane range) mad.gif

I was sort of hoping that @r4m0n would get to that after making a Linux version of Zen States. (https://github.com/r4m0n/ZenStates-Linux). At a minimum I'd like to get the board RGB lights and the GPU RGB lights in sync, and at a maximum get both light sets operating at the same color as the front strip on my case. One might dare to hope that an Asus GPU in an Asus board would have some deliberate capability to operate in sync.

Hmmm okay now im worried because even when my PC is powered off the colorful LED lights still remain lit. I'll post a pic when I get home.

I wouldn't mind writing some utilities to control the LEDs if someone could find some documentation on how they work.

LEDs near the ports and PCH could be switched off completely from BIOS (but always off, not just during power off).

Woah...I've been away since BIOS 1701 still didn't net me 3200mhz on my Corsair hynix 3200 ram. Just came back to the new timings calc tool and just want some clarification

1) I saw the install guide..I can follow that no issue
2) Has anyone with issues had that calc fix your problems and get you stable? Is it worth the trouble, as basically 100% of the things I've tried up to this point have been a waste of time.

Did you try The Stilt's Hynix MFR timings?
