Heatkiller IV is the best block! Solid Cu version is like a brick bolted on to the board.

same for me, 60/61/62° all the time, i think that this is the temp that the little fan is trying to maintain the PCH. the pc is on a benchtable right now, so no airflow from case fans, the only thin moving air in the chipset area is the gpu cooler (dual fan).

i have 2 M2 SSD under the cover, 1 Sabrent gen4 and 1 Sabrent gen3, 1 EVGA 1080FTW and 1 audio card (no DIMM2).

and i have also tried to disable the Aquantia 10G, Intel AX200 and two AsMedia storage, i don't use any of them, but the PCH temp stood still @ 60°

Here is a 0063 based bios for Zenith II Extreme (non-Alpha), which has been brought up to AGESA 1.0.0.4 RC (from 1.0.0.3C) level firmware wise.
There are no changes whatsoever to the ASUS side of the code, only the blocks provided by AMD (AGESA FW stack) has been updated. Software which can display AGESA build version will indicate no change, since the readout
is based on a static ASCII string instead of true module versioning detection and obviously I didn't bother to change the build version.

Changes:

- SMU 4.36.22 >> 4.36.23
- SMU PMP 4.24.16 >> 4.24.17
- AGESA Main Bootloader WABLCP9C062020 >> WABLCP04162021
- TRX40 (Bixby) Chipset FW 0.2F.12 >> 0.2F.13
- Starship Rev. B0 (SSP-B0) CPU µCode 0x8301025 (7/11/2019) >> 0x8301039 (2/7/2020)

PMU (memory controller) firmwares and their pre-configs are unchanged, so there won't be any changes in memory behavior either.

Update using Flashrom, following these instructions.
In case something goes wrong, you can use Flashback to recover, as usual.

Note that this build is totally unofficial and besides of providing the original bios, ASUS has nothing to do with it.

Are you guys using the Armoury Crate app? If not, is there any other program to control lights on the motherboard?
I believe this app is causing HWInfo crashes when the ASUS EC sensor is enabled.

You can just get the Aura app from Asus' website and skip installing ArmourCrate completely.

Depending on which NVME slot you are using, in the bios you can select if it is disabled, 2 lanes, or 4 lanes of PCIe to that specific slot.
Notably the one on the back of the board defaults to 2 lanes, and I have to manually set it to 4 lanes, which disables 4 of the SATA ports.
