Very nice. Cool option to have. Thanks for the reply.

Player Unknown BGs runs fine for me with all cores and SMT on. Very smooth. (cant find your post to quote!)

Any tips on Single / 2 core boost and XFR. My ryzen never goes above the all core boost clock. It just sits there and doesn't drop to base clock or below.

Thanks.

I had a friend with the exact same problem.

Everything is fine, you turn off your computer and then, it wont boot no mather what. The board is dead. It doenst even show any power signs (all the lights off, etc).
If that board had design problems you would see 1000s of massive complaints in the forums with the same problem.

I did everthing i could. Switch BIOS, disconnect everything, remove and mount the cpu again, etc...its dead, there is no way it will boot.

Or do you know some trick?

Leaving the board without the CMOS battery and PSU completely isolated for hours.

The CPU has what I'll loosely call BIOS on-board itself, and clearing that out requires removing the CMOS battery.

At least that's my understanding. I'm no electrical engineer.

It can drain all the capacitors be it on the board or the CPU. That's the idea.

I won't go on pointing that the CPU can store AGESA Codes, I'm not that knowledgeable in that regards but yeah, there are reports of mobos brought back to life using that trick. Some users leave it for days.

I can't tell if it is the beta bios of the F3 before they released F3 oficially? or if it is a later revisioned F3.

F3 is newer. It's built around the latest AGESA.

Everything with a letter suffix will denote BETA BIOS revisions.

F3E has both codes from AGESA 1.0.0.3 and 1.0.0.4

On my P67-UD5 Gigabyte board it will just copy over the backup BIOS to the main BIOS if it detects an issue (kind of a pain when overclocking to be honest...).

Does it work similarly here? Any disadvantages to running single BIOS full-time if you're comfortable manually moving over the switch in the event of BIOS failure?

Yep, it works that way.

I always ENABLE Single BIOS Mode whenever I can with motherboards that has the DUAL BIOS feature. It can save you from borking both BIOS.

I flash on one side if I want to test things leaving the other with a clean slate. With it left to default (DUAL Mode), if a fault is experienced that prevents it from passing POST Tests, the board will revert to the othet BIOS position. Cool feature you think? NOPE. I cannot reproduce a scenario to force the board to do that. It's a crapshoot.

When in Single BIOS Mode, if you bork the BIOS, switching to the other position may not always help you. Always turn off the PSU, wait for the board LEDs to go OFF before switching. I find 0d and 0E codes cannot be fixed by a fast flip of the BIOS switch. You need to refresh the board using the tricks mentioned above.

For flashing though, you can boot from one (good) position, proceed to Q-Flash screen, flip the BIOS Position and FLASH. Just don't do that all the time and stick to the board refresh rule.

I have destroyed BIOS chips doing that on my RVE.

Got me a 1700, a Gaming K7 and 16GB of TridentZ 3600 in hopes I can do some BCLK OCing to get it that high. Now the wait >_<.
post #696 of 1642
Don't forget to Enable PCIe1.0 or 2.0 once you get to that point.

Update , got some F9 loop this morning, manage to boot after 2 loop if not mistaken. Not sure if the OC setting still there, im rushing to work, LOL . Anyone facing the same issues woth the F3e ?

What os? I. was running win10 anniversary without updates at the time.. running 7 now and haven't tried it with all cores again yet. There's been at least 3 patches since I had the problem so maybe they fixed it already.

I feel like these boards are leading the AM4 pack in 3D performance.

After all the possible tweaking. User and gaming experience is smooth af. Running on w10 pro creators. Especially on killing floor 2 with alot of flying innards and particles! Can't wait and see how it feels on BF1! Still patching hahaha!

The board itself is great! I was waiting for their UD series to get to am4 but maybe they will do it hopefully in the future.

Been playing with my K7 tonight...

Took the recommendation for F3d BIOS

I have 1700X and Flare X 3200 8GBx2.

I loaded Windows 10 at stock settings and RAM at 2400MHz to make sure everything was fine. Ran prime for 15 mins... all good.

I then loaded XMP profile 1, Ram went straight to 3200MHz (14-14-14-34-73-1T), haven't even touched any other settings or voltages.... been running prime for 15 mins now..... all good.

The fan control software works much better on this board than the B350M-D3H too.... not nearly as buggy.

I'm pretty pleased right now.



Assuming everything stilll looks good after stress testing, I'll bump my overclock up to 4GHz and see what happens.
