Ok followed the guide by Lermite to work on B350-F 5008, after using UBU to inject new microcode.
Noticed in hex editing that CPU, DF and UMC were apparently in one section after the hide value. I guess all three might unlock with the single edit?
After generating the new rom file, I realized I hadn't really looked into disabling or making visible Spread Spectrum options.
When I went back to AMIBCP, Sb Clock Spread Spectrum seems to appear in two places: Setup>Main>"Blank Folder", and also under Ai Tweaker.
What happens if it is set to "USER" in say Ai Tweaker, but not in the other location? If I want to set it to default Disabled, I assume I need to change it in both locations as well? Or is this option broken on new bioses anyway?
Also I assume it is safe to use AMIBCP on a rom to change settings after the HxD step, right?
Last bit is about FD44Editor and MAC / UUID stuff. I have tried searching but can't seem to find info for the settings in Data Format. I thought it should be "System UUID only" since checking the UUID via cmd in Windows gives an ID that has the MAC at the end of it. The only guide for this program I found was from 2010 and it just said that if GbE listed "not present" you use ASCII String option instead of GbE Region option. Didn't mention the top option at all. Anybody used this on an Asus B350 board? Read Reous's pdf with his bios where it shows using default System UUID only.
edit: I didn't use the two combo bioses in between, but in 5008 official there is a stupid screen with a blinking cursor in between splash at post. Yesterday when restarting the system, it seemed to freeze on this screen. Ended up hitting reset button. Also had a couple programs hang on close last night (Teamspeak and Origin).
I reflashed 5008 official and pulled the cmos battery. Will see if this happens again. If it does I am less motivated to try my modded 5008, although maybe I can make something better than Asus official.
