My experience with the Asus PRIME X370-Pro - Page 36

post #351 of 770
So I got my AIO sucking cool air IN instead of blowing out. Am now running fairly stable 3.97GHz with temps from 30 to about 65 on full load! Huge improvement. Even my GPU is cooler - the warm air from the rad is getting blown out the top so the GPU is sitting in the draft of the front fans blowing in.

I did have huge difficulties getting fanXpert to configure the fans properly, but eventually it did it. I don't know why it's failing to detect fans so often frown.gif

Hurry up new bios!

edit: meant to say with CPU at default temp was around 24 idle.

Hey guys,

Decided to finally upgrade from my old faithful i7-2600K and since I'm an oldschool PC enthusiast I like to pick up some new and perhaps even a little bit untested hardware and I don't mind a little bit of tinkering......so long story short I picked up some brand new hardware last week:
-AMD Ryzen 7 1700X
-16gb RAM (Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16, recommended in the AMD blog here)
-Asys PRIME X370-Pro

Built the system and fired it up...had a long(ish) black screen until the system finally booted up and I got to installing Windows. Fiddled around a little bit and found out my RAM was running at 2133mhz. So I went back to the BIOS and fooled around with the RAM settings. In the end I set the AI Tuner to DOCP mode and DRAM Frequency to 2666mhz and thats the highest it would go for me.

My board was supplied with the BIOS version 0502, also tried flashing to 0504 but theres seems to be some temperature display bug in the version 0504 and it shows 20 degrees too much (?) as the offset value appears to be set incorrectly in that particular BIOS version...I couldnt go any higher than 2666mhz on the RAM anyway. Anything higher and it just kept beeping at POST and wouldnt boot up...so I flashed BIOS back to 0502 and I'm running that now.

There is one other issue I've had randomly on this motherboard, and its that it for whatever reason sometimes doesn't recognize all my SATA drives at bootup, I was wondering at times why seemingly nothing happens when I fire up the PC but then yesterday I noticed that sometimes it seems to just randomly not recognize my O/S drive and sometimes one of the other SATA drives I have. I dont know if this is an issue from my RAM tinkering or is it another bug in the platform...

Performancewise I'm quite happy with it. I do some video encoding and it seems quite a bit faster than on my old Sandy Bridge CPU. In gaming I have not really noticed that much of a difference, but I wasn't really expecting much.

So whats the point of this post? Maybe just to give some user experience from this motherboard and hopefully give some tips to some people.

Bottomline: The AM4 platform seems to be somewhat buggy/unfinished right now, and especially the ASUS boards seem to have quite a bit of issues. Also there hasnt been an official ASUS BIOS update for this board for nearly a month which is really weird...I read somewhere that there's gonna be one "soon", but whenever that is...I dont know.

Anyway, feel free to ask anything about this motherboard/setup and I'll try to answer as much as I can smile.gif.
Thanks for offering help. I just became proud owner of same MB together with R5 1600x and Kingston HYPERX 8GB DDR4 Savage Black 3000MHz CL15 - HX430C15SB2/8. Didn't put it together yet due to waiting for Cooler Master to deliver adapter for my Nepton 140XL but should be in by next week.
Upon careful inspection of the MB i found some connectors not mentioned in manuals and in schematic view or it. One is between RGB light connector and BIOS chip. Another one is at the bottom of MB between TPM connector and front USB3 connector. What the heck are they for ? No literature mentions them at all.

So this is available for B350 - ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS BIOS 0609 - maybe we'll get an update too!

0604 is last one I can see, are you using it ?
Also, do you have those connectors I mentioned in my previous post ?

Yep - using 0604.

....and yes, I do have those extra connectors! What the hell are they? The one at the bottom is labelled PHD600 or PHD000 I think. I'd love to know what they are - could be something interesting - maybe we should compare to the CHVI board - I don't know if they're similar - we might be able to see what it is....i'll have a look.

heard that one near the BIOS chip is for reprogramming BIOS if it gets bricked. Apparently some other MBs have it but with pins removed. Bottom one, still not a clue.

Interesting - and how do we use it to program our bios? maybe it's the interface used when they make the boards to send the bios file.

I've posted on the ASUS forum to see if anyone know anything.... https://vip.asus.com/forum/topic.aspx?board_id=1&model=PRIME%20X370-PRO&SLanguage=en-us

"We" don't, it takes special chip writer like ones used for removable BIOS chips.

Someone just confirmed that over @ ASUS - it's an SPI interface for the bios - I have an SPI interface for my drone for doing similar stuff......now we just need to know what the other one does.... rolleyes.gif

Oh goody, SPI, that's good to know. Bottom one makes no sense, due to paint and multilayered MB, I cant even trace the traces so to speak.
Otherwise, how satisfied are you with it, I will not be able to put system together unit weekend ?
