Can you please confirm where in the BIOS are those options? I mean, I see VCCIO near the CPU Voltage. But if I set there 1.25v as you suggest, it gets purple colour, as if the value was too high. In fact, I have it now at 0.97v. By VSA you mean System Agent Voltaje? I cant find VSA anywhere. And if I set it to 1.25v, it goes purple too.

Anyway, in my very short knowledge compared to yours about Asus motherboards, but with the experience Ive had with computers and Asus boards for years, this MB needs a BIOS update ASAP with fixes for this and other problems. I appreciate your help a lot, but I dont think we should be fiddling with BIOS values, as XMP should work just by enabling it. Just like in the Maximus VIII Hero I had until last week

Edit: couple questions:

- Are you an Asus employee by any chance, or just someone trying to help? Thanks anyway smile.gif
- Could I try drivers and BIOS from other Z370 MB like the Z370-E and F in the Hero? Or they are different between boards and I could have trouble if I do?

I would suggest both you guys should enter the ram timings manually. In the memory menu, select the Preset that is closest to the voltage you are willing to run at (like 1.4V) then after loading the preset, back out and set the primary timings, frequency and voltage manually. If you had loaded XMPO prior, be sure to clear cmos to flush ALL of the XMP settings - some of which you may not, or cannot return to default via hte keyboard. thumb.gif

Just tried that and no go. Getting code 55 all the time. frown.gif

i'm not an Asus employee. Just trying to help.
But I have to say.. you are on Overclock.net... changing bios settings is what this is all about. 1.2-1.25V VCCIO and VSA (yes, system agent) on Z370 is fine. My 8700K is running as shown below.
Honestly, I would not rely upon XMP to work AND be thoroughly stable on any platform. Besides, leaving th4ese voltage on Auto with XMP and your ram kit wil llikely run much higher voltage, I was trying to tame that for you.
Anywho... your wait for a bios fix to address your specific problem begins.
Probably best to fill out the bug report as shown in th eOP of this thread.

Lastly, you say you are concerned about running a "purple" voltage on an overclock (and ram that high is also a CPU overclock) .. but ask about cross flashing bioses from different boards? Really?

Okay - code 55 is dram (basically usually solved by increasing VSa further). My 4400c19 kit requires 1.275V VSA just to run 4266c17 stable. You can check this thread for ram help:

Thanks again for your help. I have changed lots of BIOS settings trying to fix voltage issues for example. Is not that I dont want to. Its just that with an older Asus MB I didnt need to, for this particular RAM kit. Besides that, it seems tiefox is having the same problem as me, has tried your suggestion and hasnt worked for him. Not saying it in a negative way, its just that with other Asus Z2370 mobos, other people couldnt fix this until BIOS were updated smile.gif

And my concerns might sound weird to you, but thats why I ask. Whether it migh be a small thing, or something that could brick my board. If m not sure about what Im going to do, or I dont have the knowledge, I prefer to ask smile.gif.

Is there any BIOS available for the Maximus X Hero other than the 0505 release BIOS? Cant boot the system if I set the RAM to its XMP Profile. RAM kit is this one:

https://www.gskill.com/en/product/f4-3600c17d-32gtzr

At Auto speeds (2133Mhz) works just fine. So I guess its a problem that may need to be solved. Also, board is behaving kind of funny when it comes to voltages applied to the CPU (8700k). Thing is, Ive read these problems on the Strix Z370-e and F boards happening as well, but being fixed with new BIOS updates. Which there are several available to those boards, as well as new chipset drivers for example.

But the Hero is kind of forgotten. Any ideas on when new BIOS / drivers will be available for this board?

Thanks a lot for your help smile.gif

After turning on XMP, go into the Dram Timings Menu and change your primary timings to 17-18-18-38, save and reboot and it should then boot up fine.

I have found that sometimes not all XMP primary timings combinations are supported automatically in the bios, especially in a newly released board like the Hero and changing them to a more commonly used combination, then works in the board training up and booting successfully.

Give that a try and see if it works.

My X Hero Wifi does not set high VCCIO and VCCSA voltages on auto like my Z270 did, for 3600cl16 32GB kit, I set XMP and manual VCCIO, VCCSA (System Agent) to 1.2 and 1.22 volts in bios, AIDA shows 1.216 and 1.232 and I have a few timings tightened a little 15-16-16-32-1T, if I just set XMP it also will not boot, bios 0505

Thanks for the suggestion but just tried it and wont boot, code error 49

49 is dram training fail. this can be due to weak sticks, weak cpu IMC... poor RTLs, or insufficient voltage on the core, cache, dram vccio or vsa rails. I've gotten many 49 (and 55) on a number of boards, one of these always fixes it.
And again - XMP may not work depending on the cpu.
Good chance a different board's bios would not cross flash.

yeah, good to know it's not running a high voltgae - but you still set a manual VCCIO and VSA. I have some ram kits here that fail XMP, but this new 4400c19 kit boots it's XMP right up. go figure. redface.gif

Tried setting VCCIO and VCCSA to 1.25v and same 49 error. But setting manually the speed to 3200Mhz and DRAM Voltage to 1.35v, with the rest in auto (timmings are 17-18-18-36), boots and seems to work fine so far.

Edit: have been fiddling some more; seems that memories are fine at 3466 as well. They just dont boot at 3600. But thats more like it. Can live without those 144Mhz until BIOS get refined.

You can verify this by stress testing with any AVX program and watching the multipliers drop. The only way to actually go back to 0 AVX offset is "Load Optimized Defaults" -> "Save and Exit" then go back into the bios and load your settings again.
This is still broken in 0430. In fact, it's so broken you have to reflash the BIOS to undo the setting. Nice.
