ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme X399 ThreadRipper Overclocking / Support

Notice: OP under reconstruction as forum change has borked it for editing/links/attachments. Any images to see at full size open in new tab.

Notice: Some boards have older firmware for the onboard OLED/AURA, which can cause some strange issues. Update to the latest version, V1.00.13 link. Run the .exe from within Windows
Super IO chip monitoring data being stuck and/or affecting fan header PWM is now fixed. This fix is "two fold" fix, it requires UEFI with ASUS WMI implementation and applications accessing Super IO chip must also use this, otherwise adverse effects will occur to fan header PWM.

UEFI 0001 (Superseded see UEFI spoiler in OP) found in this post is first publicly available beta with this implementation. Within HWINFO the heading named by motherboard model will change to ASUS WMI, readings with (VRM) will more accurately reflect actual voltages.

Updated software versions supporting ASUS WMI:

- HWInfo v5.88 or later
- HWMonitor Beta: http://download.cpuid.com/betas/hwm_b17.zip
- SIV 5.32 or later
- CPU-Z Beta v1.86.1 or later
- AIDA64 v5.98.4800 or later

Note: CPUID SW links, as of date of update to OP, are 404 :( .



Last update date:- 23/02/19
Last update:- Added info on UEFI 1701, link for electrified's ASUS WMI support for Linux HWMON (lmsensors).

Just built my Threadripper rig with this board and first boot up won't post, I get post code B2, Load VGA bios... any thoughts here?

I had this issue on early UEFI versions. You need to wait longer, it should progress past B2 eventually - or use flashback to upgrade to 0401 or 0503 UEFI.

UEFI 0401 and later don't have Memory Access Mode in UEFI (UMA/NUMA switch) - impossible to switch modes if you don't have Ryzen Master, especially on Linux frown.gif

Got it last week and had flashbacks of the earlier C6H days. As of BIOS 0502, I'm unable to run my Sammy B OEM modules higher than 2933MHz, no matter the timings or voltages. I was using the known stable settings from C6H to no avail. Maybe BIOS 9964 helps.

Edit:

I just flashed 9964 and still couldn't post with my 3066MHz C6H settings (ProcODT 53.3), however I just got a post when using 96ohm. I wonder if the quad channel interface needs different resistances than the dual channel AM4 setup?

Dual rank Samsung B die was 80/96Ω or 43.6Ω on C6H.
Quote:
Suggested ProcODT values from Elmor/The Stilt for C6H:-

Samsung B (SR) 2x8GB 53.3Ω / 60.0Ω
Samsung B (DR) 2x16GB 80Ω / 96Ω
Samsung B (DR) 4x16GB 43.6Ω
Hynix A (DR) 2x8GB 53.3Ω
Hynix A (DR) 4x8GB 40Ω

You may also need to tweak RttNom,RttWr and RttPark, some users of C6H had good sucess with DR by changing those values, also CAD bus config.

Will try flashback now. Thanks!

Gup,

Neither of these settings worked for me on C6H, 53.3 yielded the best results when doing 3000MHz+. 53.3 on ZE didn't post at all, neither did 43.6. 80 allowed me to post but wouldn't boot Windows. I went with 68.6 now and after a brief Memtest, it seems stable with 3066MHz.
