Sorry man, didnt mean to imply you went full tard biggrin.gif With the memory issues [or perceived issues] of late, your timing was impeccable LOL.

You both have some valid points IMOP. The launch UEFI really was not ready for prime time, which I understand was really a result of AMD not giving the motherboard manufacturers adequate time between getting final samples and Launch Day. OC3D was pretty frank about the issue in the video review of the CH6, even though he liked the board a lot.

On the other hand, I had my eyes open when going for Ryzen, and fully expected teething issues would have to be dealt with. One reason I went with an Asus board is that I had more faith that they would be addressing issues competently than some other brands might. This is not like bringing out Kaby Lake and Z-270 boards, which were rather minor refreshes of the existing Skylake / Z-170.

Ryzen architecture and the motherboards are a bold and truly new approach, a big gamble for AMD and it's partners. So although AMD was a tad early on the launch, I understand the pressure it was under to stick to their timeline.

Bottom line is, yes, early adopters are sort of Beta testers, but I knew that, and think both AMD and the partners have been responding rapidly to to make things workable. I got my board just after 1002 was out, though it came with 0902, and I installed 0082. My biggest surprise was that everything including Windows installation went very smoothly. Sure I needed to work on tinkering for performance, but the rig was functional from day 1.

I guess it just depends on personality and expectations. I enjoy diving in and getting my digital digits dirty, experimenting and refining my rig. That means I love this new PC. On the other hand, if you are a consumer who wants plug and play, Ryzen was the wrong choice for you in it's infancy. Maybe a month or two from now that will not be true.

This is all well and nice for the alpha testers and tinkerers to be playing with these 79, 80, 81, 82 ALPHA bioses, but come on, I need a STABLE 24/7 computer. That is why I bought all premium parts. Crosshair should be getting MORE official bios updates than any other board period. Ram is not stable on these boards without voodoo magic and spending days in the bios. I am not willing to spend days stress testing ddr4 at every speed and latency for 4 different alpha bioses. Just put out an official bios with 1T/2T in it and get rid of the 127 settings we DON'T need or shouldn't touch.

You might be confused. The 0081-0083 BIOS's on the front page are perfectly valid. I recommend 0081.

When I uploaded 0081 I set DOCP Standard and bam, perfectly stable at 3200MHz 1T. The RAM is advertised as 2T, so I'm actually running faster, stable settings than advertised. It also includes the new AGESA code from AMD that was released ealy this month, and improves overall performance by 5%.

What are you complaining about? We're getting excellent BIOS releases that address performance and stability.

With all the memory stuff going on, I can get higher with some adjustments but I lose timings. Am I better off to have higher MHZ or better timings?

Higher MHz.

If that's the case I'm up to 3400mhz on air, and 1700x at 3850. I could prob push the cpu further, just dont know that i have any reason to. I'm going to start the stress testing to make sure its stable.

It's a double edged sword; the data fabric picks up performance you may see in games (we're talking a few fps here) but the timings also make a difference. If the timings arent terribly loose, the increased MT/s are probably more valuable for the time being.

Seems I got a bad stick of ram :-(

System boots fine with one stick, but not the other. Going to return this set, any suggestions on what I should get?>

Stick to the QVL for best results; the rest are just a crap shoot. The G.skill trident 3200c14 is the most promising right now but you pay for it too.
