Well that blows! How good is the retailer for RMAs? Hopefully it doesn't take too long!

I saw your other posts in the Ryzen owner's club thread now. Local store so that's good! thumb.gif It sucks RMAing when you have to ship and then wait for them to get it, test it, and ship another one back.

What's the best way to update the BIOS? Inside the UEFI? Just put my system together Ryzen 1700, Prime X370-PRO and 2x8GB G.Skill Trident Z 3200CL14. My board came with BIOS 0504 from factory.

I've found it easiest to unzip the BIOS onto an otherwise-empty thumb drive, then update it in the BIOS itself. Someone just bricked their board by trying to update BIOS from within Windows... never do that, Windows sucks. smile.gif

I used EZ BIOS Update from the BIOS (Tools section).
You've just got to put the BIOS XXX.cap in a FAT USB Drive and flash it.
It takes around 2 minutes

YES.. PLEASE!
don't go with AI Suite. I want no one have a bad experience like what i experienced today!

but in positive way, my board has some issue from the start.. this board has a good way to ask a RMA headscratch.gifbiggrin.gif

-add-

after some reading, apparently crash free bios were broken since 0504~0511. there's report that 0510 works fine.. i dont know which bios came off my support CD tho

One big change in the 0604 BIOS is a big whack to default VDD_SoC voltage from the default of previous BIOS' The previous Auto default was 0.881 V. It is now 1.10V in the 0604 BIOS. So anyone like me that was adding a offset needs to check that before automatically adding it back in. We also got the new ProcODT parameter to play with for better memory compatibility. Don't see much else that is new. Glad that the SMU bug is fixed though. That really bugged me. Also the FMA3 bug is fixed but I don't believe I ever ran into that problem.

Any takers on my previous problem post to help me investigate the LAN issue?
