Probably, it was posted here in this thread, but that is only for wifi version ov CH7 it doesn't work with normal version.

I think they first need to sell B550, X570 and X670 chipset based boards, then in Q1 2020 Asus will release bios for their premium B450 and X470 motherboards and maybe after 6 months from Zen3 debut they'll do it for rest of 4XX.

Logue Hey everyone! Would it be possible to mod the 3004 BIOS in order to use the Q-Code LEDs to display the CPU temperature after POST? I know some MoBos have this option, but the C7H doesn't...

I was just talking to Asus whether my B450 E-Gaming will get support. Apparently Asus won't support ANY of their B450 or X470 boards for Zen 3. A representative answered to my email that they're going to support X570 and B550 boards only.

There's a BIOS that has a fix for BCLK, but that's all I know that's different about it. Also, there are some RAM timings that get set very high when left on Auto so you'll wanna keep an eye out for that. It was posted by Shamino a few months back.

I just wanted to ask if you guys are happy with the current version of BIOS and if everything is stable and working as intended? I don't mean advanced features like CCX OC, but the basics in terms of long term stability?

Two things I've seen elsewhere online.. one is after a cold boot or BSOD.. the first boot up takes a really long time while it is memory training? Is that a one off thing for certain users, or is that constant for everyone? And secondly, going in and out of sleep, does it do this reliably?
BIOS is definitely stable, I think most of us are definitely getting along fine in terms of Stability. To be honest its really almost an identical situation to the C6H. I own and use both for 3000 based Systems, my 3950x is in the C7H, my 3900x is in a C6H, and they really are almost an identical experience. My C6H doesn't handle Auto very well, so in order to boot I have to to set either a + Offset for Voltage, or Just set a manual Multiplier and Voltage, and my C7H doesn't have that issue, other than that they really are extremely similar experiences, even down to the BIOS.

As far as Sleep, I have noticed more than a few users talk about sleep issues with this board, but I don't personally use sleep or Hibernation, my PC is either On or Off, but I do know others have had problems, not sure if they have been resolved or not.

As far as boot up time, its not so bad, my C6H is definitely another 8 seconds longer or so, but its pretty identical to that experience. If you dial in your BIOS settings correctly you can get a 30 second boot time or so, but I'd say the average boot time is about 40 to 45 seconds or so. Definitely not the best, but also definitely not as bad as it was at Launch of both the C7H and C6H, both of these boards had HORRIBLE boot times for about 4 months after launch until they finally got addressed.

Anyways, I am definitely happy, no stability issues on either, if you are used to the C6H, your experience on this board will be pretty identical, better VRM, and a few upgraded feature sets, but for the most part you won't notice much of a change. Hopefully someone else will elaborate on their sleeping issues and whether or not if those have been fixed.

That hinders all-core speed by a smidge, but lets single-core do its thing. That's what I've been playing with. With the EDC bug. So EDC at 2 or whatever you choose to use.

That's letting a couple cores get to 4.7GHz on my best CCD (hoping the new XT CPUs are two good CCDs). So letting voltages run they way they want I've been able to control temps for all-core by gently reducing PPT while letting CPU Core Voltage run at Auto. *** I can't remember what I typed at this point. The power went out and this is what was saved.
I will definitely give that a try. Back when Build Zoid released his video on the PPT, TDC, and EDC settings, I played with those then to see if I could mimic's and unfortunately even though I got my Single Core to Boost to 4.75Ghz which was fricking awesome to see, Cinebench didn't seem to care, even when I forced CB to use my best core that was constantly boosting to between 4.6 and 4.7Ghz, and forced every other task to use every other core, it made no difference, thats the run where I got 505 instead of my previous best of 504. So thats when I just figured either I or my board was cursed. And I don't believe I was using a Voltage offset at the time, but I could be wrong about that, so I will try again and make sure I have no offset this time, and see if it helps.

Appreciate the knowledge!
