Did i harass you in any way? Did i beg you to mod the bios? I did not.

What i did was saying how awesome would it be to disable hpet from bios and the one i actually asked to if it was possible to do this is thestilt.

If you want to do it is simply courtesy and community sharing, which is the whole point of everyone being in a forum (atleast in my point of view).

Asking to be paid in a forum sound kinda pathetic to me but to each it's own as i said.

There was one guy that said he would pay 50$ for it, ask him in case you need money.

Let's just chill
Dude your are the reason people stop doing things like this.

We have given the reasons why it does not work. if you feel we all are wrong...then f'ing learn to do it yourself. Enough said I will not spend anymore time explaining it to your or others. I am DONE.

I mean, now Assus is not going to "fix" their BIOS because the community does it for them for free..

I don't want to sound like an ass or anything, just saying that we need to step up towards Assus that they need to step up their software team.

Would you agree?
I agree..and this is not just an AMD thing I had to do this on my intel boards as well but was rather quiet about it.

@gupsterg yes I did as I did not do though stetting but I had it disabled the device manager and did not give it any thought until we had our discussions. Which is why my timers were showing correct. Just something people need to keep in mind that you may know what you need to set things and not even realize it is not normal thing to set up. As he said I made an assumption that it worked since my timer in wintimertest showed what I expected but I forgot that it was disabled in device manager.

HPET on or off vai the bios.

The definite conclusions from @mtrai , @gupsterg and @The Stilt are it DOES NOT WORK.

Tye key point is the setting when you disable it in the bios..then IT WOULD NOT APPEAR IN THE DEVICE MANAGER but yet it does and then using programs to test the timer being used showed us it was the timer being used. But then using the method I suggested show how to changed the timer used.

Ok, now running the ABBA-SMU bios by gupsterg. Memory seems a little better, but boost is "worse". No reaching 4600MHz anymore. Did a baseline in Geekbench between both SMU:s(46.34 vs 46.49) same settings, it's really within the margin of error. Both are Auto OC so no manual sauce involved:

32GB(2x16) G.SKill Trident Z RGB @3800(16-16-16-30-42-1T DR B-Die) 1:1:1 | Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1TB | Corsair RM850x | NZXT H700

I did a reset and had Ryzen Master activate PBO instead, results became a whole lot better. Never dips below 4100MHz in CB20 now.

What is interesting is CPU + SOC maxed out at 139W and Tdie never reached 80C so this is a very energy efficient bios.

Yes i saw the same ~20% more energy efficient, but i lost 2 points in SC CB15 even though same clock of 4.2GHz @ stock.

Do note that these are totally untested, rebuilt bioses. Despite I fully expect them to work, there is no guarantee what so ever that they actually do.

Also since the bioses have been rebuilt, their original signatures allowing them to be flashed using official software (e.g. EzFlash) tools are invalid. Because of that, they can be only flashed in using the Flashback feature.

In case they do not work or introduce some kind of an issue, you can revert to original bios by using Flashback function.

Also note that these bioses ARE NOT based AGESA 1.0.0.3ABBA code revision, as the whole code base has not been upgraded (only the SMU firmwares).
Therefore the behavior might not be identical to true 1.0.0.3ABBA bios builds.

Naming: Official bios build, M = Modification, FI = 4649 (ASCII)

Crosshair VII Hero 0002M-FI

Crosshair VII Hero Wi-Fi 0002M-FI

Please let me know if they work or not, so that I can take them down if they're not working.
UEFI flashed and working properly on my VII WIFI.

Ran a quick userbenchmark both before (2703) and after flashing (Stilt Modded) which I have attached.

I definitely see an uplift across the board with the modded UEFI.

If you look at my results you will see a significant drop in Vcore:
