The guy who sold me the board had F10 BIOS on both chips (1st Raven Ridge BIOS). I tried out a few of the newest BIOSes and none of them allowed any better overclocking headroom, actually worse. When I pushed a bit too hard is when I noticed the backup BIOS switch over as it put me back on F10. That got me wondering if I could somehow manually switch back and forth between the BIOS chips, but with no manual switch and no selection within the BIOS itself, it looked like it wasn't possible. I did a lot of googling and finally I found an obscure forum post that said if you hold in the reset switch and power switch for 10 seconds while powering up, that it would switch the BIOS chips. I was skeptical, but I tried it, and it works like a charm. So now I can easily switch back and forth between different BIOS revisions, which will make it possible to enable PCIE 4.0 on the fly if I upgrade to Ryzen 2 since this board has that capability despite being X370.

My current 24/7 overclock: is now 3.875GHz and RAM at 3466MT/s CL14. Rock solid with the F10 BIOS.

In other news, we actually had a cold snap for 1 day last week, where we actually had some winter-like temperatures in the morning, about 33 degrees F, opposed to the 65-70 that has become the new normal for the gulf coast this time of year. I took advantage of this and ran benchmarks like crazy. I was even able to validate a 4.1GHz overclock.

Oh I would but it's tied up in my other computer which runs more demanding games at 4k.

Of note, my RX570 can play the new HALO game at 4K maximum detail at a constant 60FPS. We were testing it yesterday. That game is incredibly optimized and looks great.

Nice! Another game I would think would run well is Forza Horizon 4. I don't even normally play racing games, as you probably know, I mostly play WRPGs and JRPGs, action/adventure, and not many fps to be honest.

Its really well optimized, but unfortunately in my case tends to crash in the menus while tuning cars (driving/races are fine). Its usually while saving; fortunately the changes I make to a cars parts stick but I have to reopen the game.

I've heard it runs better on AMD and seen that a Vega64 outperforms the 1080ti by a solid margin in it (+15%)

Gameplay wise its impeccable; really really well done. The only racing game I ever got addicted to (Aside from SEGA Outrun and Super Hang-On arcades) is Tokyo Extreme Racer 2 on Dreamcast. This is a very similar style game with every aspect of the car tunable, and racing for money to upgrade or buy new cars. It also has like 400 cars or something, all licensed from real manufacturers, and isnt just limited to Japan Domestic Manufacturers cars like in the old TXR2.

Anyway, if you can get it on sale and you have any interest or ever played any older games in this style (Burnout Paradise on X360 and NFS Underground are similar) it'll keep you busy for weeks

Also gonna be doing a keyboard build in my build log so keep your eyes on that too. https://www.pcgamingrace.com/product...l-brown-switch

Got that and will be changing switches and keycaps

Ok so another update.

Last year I replaced my beloved Rosewill Capstone 550W (Super Flower Golden Green) in anticipation that I would be doing all of these upgrades, and the for the fact that it's been running hard almost 7 years. After owning that PSU, I have really been wanting to try the LEADEX or LEADEX II platform, so I ordered the EVGA 650W SUPERNOVA G3 which is based on the LEADEX II.

Some things I like about it. It's smaller, so it's easier to run cables than my bulky Capstone. It has a 10 year warranty so this unit will likely last through a few rebuilds. The ripple suppression is very tight. Now I wasn't sure if it was the better ripple filtering or the extra 100W capacity, but my RX570 maximum stable overclock with my Capstone 550W is only 1415/2125, and with the SUPERNOVA 650W I could do 1437/2130. I would figure out more later.

In a fortunate turn of events, I was able to score a good used condition Radeon VEGA 64 from the Techpowerup forums. The thing is, I really needed to put that card in my downstairs HTPC because we play way more intensive games at 4K on that computer, and none of my mid-range cards were cutting it. Of course to power that pig I had to pull my new SUPERNOVA back out of my main rig and match it with the VEGA. All is well on that HTPC. Meanwhile CAPSTONE went right back in my main rig.

But my main rig also pushing a 4K monitor, I still plan on a more powerful graphics solution. I've had a couple good offers for a dirt cheap RX 570 that I could pair in crossfire, or I might save up and get something like a 5700XT. Either way, PSU needed first, so as soon as they went on sale again this month, I ordered another SUPERNOVA, but this time a G3 750W, and I'm glad I did. I installed it yesterday. We had some cool weather this morning so I fired up some benchmarks to test out what it could do. Now my RX 570 can push 1450/2130, so I assume it's just a power sucking beast when overvolted and overclocked to the silicon limits.

In summary very happy with these SUPERNOVA PSUs.
