Thanks for testing F3 guys. Seems like staying on F3d is the better choice atm.
Hope (for AMD)

I'd say the same. smile.gif

Performance, favors F3D as well.

BTW, your F9 issue, was it an instant F9--board reboot Or q-code shuffle--F9--reboot loop?

Looks like I was wrong. Scored pretty good with Cinebench with F3.

Not yet that great as Asus Cinebench BIAS but still, improvement.

Also for those who are wondering which VCore Value to look for in HWInfo, - VCore value just under the VRM MOS on my previous set-up. Verified with a multimeter but only true under Load.

A closer VCore Value to that of multimeter reading can be verified inside the BIOS under PC Health Status.

F3 is doing great for me so far.

No problems with overclocking on F3?

Flashed to F3. Applied known OC settings from F2. Board now showing me Dd error and I cannot get back into the BIOS. On backup BIOS now, but does anyone know how I can reflash my main BIOS from the backup BIOS? The instructions online makes it seem like it should be automatic... but it isn't.

I have since flicked the switches back to Single Bios and Main Bios, but the Backup Bios LED is on and not the main, which makes me think I am still on my Backup even though the switch is flicked to Main.

Any help will be appreciated!
Yup...

AFAIK: Put it into single BIOS mode. Boot to backup. Go into QFlash. While in QFlash, flip switch to main BIOS. Flash.

I got my board yesterday. I can't get to post. The led display says Ab and the cpu led light besides the display is red, the other 3 are off. I get no display on any of the port on my video card. Also there's no power on any of the usb slots. Sometimes the Ab code and led stay there forever and sometimes it throws 3E and does what looks like a reboot and the code scroll then comeback to the same point.

I tried reseating the cpu. Clearing Bios with the jumper and the button and the battery, switching bios, dual and single bios mode. Tired the trick to start monitor only once the Ab code stays there for a couple seconds without reboot, I swapped for another working video card. All to no avail. Took the MB out of the case and on test bench didn't change a thing.

CPU: 1700
GPU: RX470
PSU: CX650M
RAM: Corsair Vengeance lpx CMK32GX4M4A2400OC16R
SSD: 960 EVO (had it in at first but took it out the have one less variable)

Any ideas?
