New BIOS available! X47AG304.BST
Testing the new BIOS but I see no difference in general, there are a few more options available that others have noted for AGESA 0.0.7.2 are here as well but the options I wanted for memory are still gone and I see no discernible difference with MEM OC compared to earlier BIOS.
Maybe it resets the BIOS 10% less or something but it is hardly noticeable.

The boot process was a little faster but hardly by much. It's slow nonetheless.

Noticed there is a new Trusted Computing platform inbuilt into the CPU that can now be used for some security stuff vendor "AMD", this wasn't available before.
CPU OC I see no difference thus far, needed the same voltage as before for similar clocks.

Will tinker and see what is different but maybe a 1% or so faster in cpu-z benchmark in AUTO mode and other similar settings I tested before.

Nothing negative in as such yet.

EDIT:
After more testing MEM OC seems to work much easier than before. Can actually combine manual voltage with a manual procODT settings now which improved testing considerably. Seems I need to use some higher procODT values on this board.
53.3Ohm seems to be the sweet spot as of now and I don't seem to need that much voltage as I thought.
