Try 1st using f2 and see if your set up would work fine. If not use F3 because it has the latest AGESA 1.0.0.4a and the offset temp fixes for the r7 "x" chips.

Well, may also consider to swap them for a pair of F4-3600C16D-16GVK instead! What do you think? It's exactly the same now aswell (they were hella lot more expensive before!)

C16 vs C18 isnt bad either, so it's got to be Samsung B-Die?

Yes and there's the FMA3 bugfix too. I think I'll give it a shot, I forgot this board has dual bios. Is it possible to revert back to an older bios in this motherboard?

Yes there is.
On your motherboard on the lower left hand corner near the front panel audio, there are 2 switches there.
the top most switch = BIOS 1 and 2, if the switch is on the right side it's using BIOS 1, and if you flip it to the left it would use the back up.

The 2nd switch is the one to turn dual bios on and off. Another advice here is, if your tweaking set the second switch to single bios mode.

It's also on your boards manual if you are having a hard time to find it smile.gif

Appreciated, many thanks for the info. But is it possible to flash an older bios? I think GIgabyte boards wouldn't let it in the past, don't know if this is the case too.

Haven't tried for myself but if you have the bios from the official site the original one the "F2" and use a bootable dos usb and flash it from there.

Guess we'll have to find the answer from others here biggrin.gif

Will try the Ryzen power plan and see if it does anything to help me with green energy saving features biggrin.gif


Thanks! looking forward to hearing about your findings.

 

I've found additional information about said Ryzen-compatible Balanced Power-Plan over here:

https://community.amd.com/community/gaming/blog/2017/04/06/amd-ryzen-community-update-3

 

Seems like they've now integrated it into their aforementioned Chipset Driver Pack.

Sure will. Hopefully this will address my event log entries about power plan configuration errors that's pointing to firmware issues.

I'm going to find out in an hour or 2 biggrin.gif

Updated to F3 and everything went smooth. My 1700 still downclocks and downvolts on idle (windows balanced power plan with 5% minimum processor state), it's not a bios related thing, I have no clue why it's not working for you :S

To share some info:

Fixed the ROM Image not loaded issue by flashing to F2 and back to F3, thanks for the tip whoever said that!

So decided to revisit overclocking (1600X)

RAM is 3200 16-18-18-36 using XMP and has been stable from day one. Corsair LPX kit.

Rock solid stable 3.9GHz @ 1.35v
Pushed up to 3.95GHz at 1.35 and failed 5th run of Cinebench.
Ended up @ 4.0GHz with 1.3925v in BIOS 1.38 under load in CPU-Z with a BLCK 100.1 as the 3999 annoys me!

Interestingly after a few crashes when finding the lower voltage limit I got the ROM Image not loaded issue again and although am able to boot into windows using a boot override, the CPU frequency settings cannot be altered, same for RYZEN Master Utility which says HPET is not enabled and asks to enable it, thought this was an issue with older AMD micro code? So another flash to F2 and back to F3 to solve. Been on 4.0GHz for a day and no problems. Next up want to hit 4.1GHz so then I wont be salty about XFR at stock not doing anything. Honestly thought I was buying a 4.0GHz part as was the stated boost freq, guess I didn't read the small print enough, it literally NEVER boosts to 4.0 or 4.1 when set to stock. Just sits at 3.7GHz.

So 4.1GHZ and offset voltage play is up next..

good luck with all your OCs!
