Updated to latest 4603 bios for the x370-f strix. Loving how the PBO options back.

What's the sweet spot for PBO scalar?

On 4602 for the STRIX B350-F Gaming and loving it. Probably the best BIOS revision out to date in terms of compatibility and OC performance. Excited to swap out my 1600 for a 2600X for only $30 (CAD) tomorrow to see what this RAM can do. I will be picking up the STRIX x470, but waiting for the good sale either when the 5 series are officially announced or when they need to cleat stock. Been eyeing that board for a while now. I read that not much has changed between the x370 and x470 of those boards except the x370 seems to have more USB which I like although it is lacking 3.1 so I guess there are pros and cons. How do you like the board for its VRMs and overall power management? I read it is the best board in class; it just kind of sucks that it only has voltage offset and not straight manual voltage but I can deal with it for such a sweet board.

I wonder what magic 4801 will bring us STRIX users as they seem to have enabled pretty much everything on the B350 from the 4 series chipset and even a bunch of stuff other companies reserve for their x470 boards which is nice. Just wish that I knew as much as I know now about Ryzen, memory, and the importance of VRM/power management as I do now when I first got the setup as I would have happily paid the extra cash for the x370 although Intel got me accustomed to never needing anything past the point of what the mobo I have now is tier wise. Ah well, at least I know now.

So, for the Zen+ chips is it really not worth it to overclock and just let CPB/XFR or whatever do it's magic as my buddy got the 2600X and the same motherboard as me and seems to be in the 4.2ghz range while gaming so what is the need for a manual OC at point?

Well you actually have manual voltage just digit in the number, but more important you need the offset not the manual, cause on the X cpu you need to undervolt a vit like -.05 volt and thats all

Unlocked BIOS for ASUS ROG Strix GL702 ZC

Hi guys,
I have the ASUS GL702 ZC and it would be great if I could run my 32 GB of RAM at 3000 MHz (you know, because Infinity Fabric). Unfortunately ASUS decided to not give this option with the latest BIOS, so I'm wondering if is actually possible to flash an unlocked BIOS for this laptop.It has a B350 chipset (according to AIDA64 Extreme, it has: North Bridge: AMD K17 IMC, South Bridge: AMD Promontory B350 (ASM2016C), South Bridge: AMD K17 SCH).
Thanks

Undervolt the X???? To get 4.3ghz stable across all cores with XFR and CPB disabled I needed to add juice. It was really low voltage, like 1.27v stock, and now it is 100% stable with 1.337v. Just passed my final test for rock solid CPU certification: 4.3ghz @ 1.337v with a max temp of 58c which is pretty awesome. I will probably go for 4.5ghz when my x470 board comes in.

BIOS 4801 is out.

No changes to AMD CBS since last version.
Spread spectrum disabled with mod still not working.

I don't really like the BIOS seems the same as 4602. Flashing back to 4011.

hello boys, i have a x470 Prime PRO with a 2700x and 32(4x8Gb) of Gskills F4-3200C14-8GFX

wanna make a the most out of this config, which bios would you recommend from 4204 / 4602 / 4801 or 4011

Im afraid of the 4011 cuz never modded before.. so im not well aware of the benefics.. and all this is with the goal of trying to undervolt to get a higher XFR with a good Timings on my rams

@Rayleighzero

Most of the need for modded BIOS is from 300 series owners because PBO and Scalar are missing on those boards. As you already have a well featured x470 I doupt you would need a mod BIOS.

If I had your board it would probably be official 4207 because it has good performance with 2700x or 4801 if I could gain enough extra RAM frequency to compensate for the slight loss in performance at same frequencies.

The Strix X370-F got officially PBO including Scalar and manual limits with last 4603 update. 🙂
