Ive got the 7a saved away if interested?

F25 has been released.... so far (all 30 mins) just the high vcore (UPDATE - only on auto/stock, normal with offset seems to be working again)... and one successful wake from sleep.

All the files ever posted to Gigabyte BIOS support pages (so, including F7a, but not F7b) are still directly accessible here, just scroll down to find the "mb_bios_ga-ax370-gaming-k7_" section:

http://download.gigabyte.cn/FileList/BIOS/

I'm using Ket's modified F7a with my 1800X and it works wonderfully!

I've also been compulsively saving copies of everything that's been released, along with dates and whatever meager "change log" info was posted along with each.

I tried all F23 -> F24 -> F25 on my Gaming 3 and I gotta say I like Agesa 1.0.0.6

Does wonders for memory settings and stability. You can basically now test all settings and boot to see what they do now. Before many settings refused to boot outright now they do and even if the are unstable you can see what they affect and I've improved stability with the new working combinations that didn't work on older Agesa at all!

I can use a another RTT value setup from the only one really working earlier [RZQ/7, RZQ/3, RZQ/1] ---> a better one [RZQ/7, disabled, RZQ/5]
I can even boot with 3866Mhz memory! (though not enough SoC voltage or CPU sample to not freeze if I test anything in windows)

I've also slightly improved my 3733Mhz mem config on the sub timings as stability improved. Now trying to stabilize 3800Mhz.

Seems a keeper, sleep works again (short and over-night) and the high voltage on the vcore is only at stock with vcore on AUTO, normal and offset seems to works.

So far loaded previous OC and ran memtest for a few hours, was ok, next a fiddle, been on F20 or F21 since Feb (although both were pretty good to me) maybe some improvement possible.

Hello guys. Been out for a while and I'd like to know where things are in terms of the memory overclocking on the K7.

BIOS?
MEM OC?
CPU OC?

Still on 1800X btw.

I am not keen on staying on hiatus!

Hello

For me on a 1700, not much has changed, i switched to the K7 from a Prime kinda early on (around when the F6 was released) and 3200 worked straight out of the box, general impression then was Gigabyte were ahead on the RAM side compared to the others, but lacked options.

Now the other boards have improved/matched or surpassed now on the RAM, and we still lack the extra options (whether they are needed is up for debate) but generally it feel its been left behind.

F20 gave some extra dividers, was able to creep up 3308 (ie 101 x 32.66) but the main bit, its at least stable! (depending on BIOS, and touch wood)

F6, F7a, F10 was fine, F20, F21 and F25 have been good.
F22, F23 and F24 have been terrible (again for me)

Ohh..

The last time I was on the K7, there were already options available on the RAM Multis as well as the Timings. Not that they were complete, but those minor stuff that you can get off Asus are not really something that makes a lot of difference anyways..

And btw, I was already able to reach 3466 the last time.

I recently got my 1700 running on my (temporarily) retired GA-AX370-K7.

It's running whatever BIOS it had on it when I retired it on fully stock settings.

Which BIOS is recommended for use with 2x16GB sticks of Hynix Memory + the 1700?

I know the 1700 is capable of running at 3.9GHz from my testing before I changed motherboards/CPUs, so I'm specifically interested in setting up P-States so I can still downclock my CPU and enjoy the massive power savings available on the 1700.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

pstates was the reason I was looking for F7b, that was the last one that worked on before it was removed because it was buggy in newer agesa iirc.

Interestingly if I go back to the launch F2 bios my 1700 downclocks and downvolts at idle when overclocked and setting the timings gets me 3200 14 14 14 34 stable with no hassles.

There never was any issues on any BIOS regarding P-state on the cheaper Gaming 3 board for myself. (just remember to check that lower states/power are enabled in windows power saving features, though you do lose some performance not running full speed at all times.)
