I understand it's not much, but 4.35 would bring it up to what it's actually programmed to boost to. There was/is a mistake in the latest BIOS pertaining to the 3900X and it's been fixed, but may not be released yet. Reviewers were updated with this BIOS recently, so it will be a little bit before the reviews start coming in. I lived in Germany for 12 years and quite liked the unlimited speed limits outside of towns.

Read the first paragraph of this post by The Stilt
. It explains a lot about the current states of the BIOS for this board.

Thank you very much! Didn't you order one or are ordering one soon? Thank you for clarifying that.

You may need to look at the settings after turning on Precision Boost Overdrive and adjusting them slightly to lower your core voltage a bit. I think 1.45V is the max for the 3900X. A new BIOS should be out soon to fix a few problems seen in this initial release version. In the meantime, you'll have to manually dial in some settings.

Here's a post from The Stilt about BCLK overclocking
. I'm not saying don't try it, but the outcome may not be optimal. I'm sure we'll eventually see something posted here about it.
