Ppl really started to get nasty and blamed the few insider ppl, that actually new what the heck the settings in the motherboard did, for Asus issues and from there it just kept going down hill. My only issue so far is sound started making a feedback noise but I switched to PCIE audio card and haven't looked back. May just be driver related but I don't feel like swapping back over to onboard yet.
Uhhh, no friggin way. That started happening to me in the past 2 days. I've just been using my Bluetooth Headphones, however this is interesting.
Also, possibly extremely annoying as I have two high end gaming systems right now and have to sell one. I decided to keep the i9-9900K/Asus Maximus XI Extreme combo over the AMD combo.
However..... Anyone buying the AMD Combo with my CH6 will likely have issues with the audio too. Obviously, this is completely unacceptable to sell in this condition.
I'm going to have to test to see if something has gone wrong with the board, as well as physically look it over too. Damn. I was really hoping it wasn't a hardware issue, I actually get pops and clicks only.
Not sure if this is the feedback you mentioned. I suppose I should have asked this immediately. Lol. Let me know?
Also, to what you said about bringing new life into the board.... Absolutely, I love doing this. I've done it since I was a teenager with upgrades. Back then it was more of a financial need than a test like I have done here.
Honestly though, I am BAFFLED as to why this isn't common knowledge already. There's no write ups about it anywhere and even when I made this post, with proof here and other places.... The response was pretty lackluster. I expected, because of the lack of literally ANY proof online apart from mine here would make some people quite happy. Ahh well, good intentions. 🙂
It does work though. I have not had a single issue man. Nothing. I'm no Engineer, however I really do believe that the First x16 PCI-E slots will work in PCI-E 4.0 mode with a Radeon 5700/XT. I'd be very surprised if it didn't because the m.2 slot is much further away and there are no issues with the length of the traces. Which is what was told to all of us by AMD themselves, if there was going to be issues, the trace length or other issues with the traces themselves would be at fault. So because the m.2 linked to the CPU works even that far away, it stands to reason the first PCI-E x16 will likely work at 4.0 as well. Possibly even the 2nd slot as well.
The options for 4.0 being enabled are (from top to bottom) First x16 Slot, Second x16 Slot, m.2 Slot. All the other options for PCI-E Generation are limited to 3.0. I wouldn't be completely surprised if the CH6's potential PCI-E 4.0 Slots were all populated, in 4.0 mode with no issues.
I also wouldn't be surprised if only 1 or 2 device/s worked in PCI-E 4.0 mode and adding another Gen4 device/s is exactly what made AMD say what they did. There has been NO publicly done testing aside from my leap of faith with this SSD. Hehe.

I am following the forum and it seems to me that problems with Ryzen 3000 have been resolved with bios updates.
This weekend I was finally able to buy a Crosshair VI. I had been looking for a motherboard since July.
About the motherboard, are you satisfied with it?
The processor will probably be a Ryzen 3600.
For low cost, one memory Corsair 3200 cl 16 (2x8) costing under $ 99, could it be a good deal? Any tips?
It's the best board I have ever owned. There also hasn't wver been any problems with Ryzen 3000 that any other board hasn't had. I assume you are referring to the widespread boosting issue.
This is fixed for the majority of people in BIOS 7501. You do lose PCI-E 4.0 support with any BIOS past 7201 though, for me (for obvious reasons) that's a deal breaker.
BIOS 7201 is not as good as BIOS 7501 for RAM overclocking though. Personally can verify this. 3733mhz max with 7201, 3800mhz max with 7501. Karu Memtest.
