No. It never worked on this board.

I can't find them in the boost fix bios. I keep thinking they may be buried in some sub menu but I doubt it.

roco_smith Also no problem what so ever on my Crosshair Extreme VI , with the latest Bios update this board is making my 3900x a champion, using 4 stick of 8GB Bdie Memory at 3800mhz with very good performance in every aspect

I'll update if the new USB and Flashback solves my BIOS issues.
Very odd about the micro stutters. My 1700X always gave me stutters on this board(WIFI) but after upgrading to a 3700X all the little hiccups of Ryzen went away and this has been on buttery smooth PC. Running the latest BIOS so I can't comment on the older BIOS.

abso How well does this board handle 4x8GB E-Dies in combination with Zen2?. Right now I have 2x8GB running at 3800/CL16, if I add another 2x8GB can I say goodbye to 3800mhz?

Sonyswarm I have used this board since July 2017, some minor bugs at launch and cold memory bugs but overall I have been happy with the board. I lost the silicon lottery with my 1700x however and could only manage around 3.8 @ 1.4v and my b-die G-skill kits could only hit 3200 cl14.

Just upgraded to a 3900x (updated bios to 0075) and it worked like a charm. The same b-die kit now runs at 3600 cl14 with much tighter timings, thanks to the dram calculator. I am very happy with the board so far.

Ppl really started to get nasty and blamed the few insider ppl, that actually new what the heck the settings in the motherboard did, for Asus issues and from there it just kept going down hill. My only issue so far is sound started making a feedback noise but I switched to PCIE audio card and haven't looked back. May just be driver related but I don't feel like swapping back over to onboard yet.
In my case: because everything is working good, I see no reason to write about it here ) I'm using this board since launch, have changed 1st and 2nd Gen. of Ryzen with basically no problems at all. There was a few minor bugs, but nothing critical. Very happy with it and suppose to use it with 4th Gen, if it will be compatible.

Issues after 3900x upgrade

Hello. Never posted on a forum before, so hopefully I'm doing this correctly. I am struggling with with some odd issues and figured to ask some people with experience.

I've had my C6H since 2017 (around 2-3 months after it released I believe) and had it paired with a 1700 until just yesterday after upgrading to a 3900x.
I had always used the same formatted fat32 usb drive to flash BIOS updates, but oddly that function stopped working months ago and typically use EZ Flash now with some
minor difficulties.

Before the CPU swap, I updated the BIOS to 7501 (now on 0075) and installed the latest chipset drivers.
After installing the 3900x and using CMOS, the system did some power cycling on it's own (fairly normal). The CPU fan turned off and on during operation, but eventually made it into the BIOS.

The 1.5V seemed concerning at first, but apparently it is normal. I wanted to set a negative voltage offset in the meantime, but when attempting, the BIOS froze up.
After restarting the system I got back into the BIOS. Strangely the BIOS will always freeze up when accessing Ai Tweaker. But only Ai Tweaker it seems.

I decided to proceed on into Windows and everything seems fine. The fans rpms will gradually fluctuate up & down, but the 1700 did that anyway on default settings.
HWinfo required another install of the latest chipset drivers for it to work. Ryzen Master doesn't seem to work after some reinstalls of its own.
I ran Cinebench R15 with no issues and the multi-core scores were around 3220.

I noticed there is a new stutter when navigating the desktop. Ran some games and the system surprisingly performed very well with no hiccups
despite the desktop performance issues.

The last oddity I recall is when I perform a system restart. The computer will hang with no display following with a code 62-63? (can't remember right now)
I get the same result from all restart attempts.

I ordered a new usb flash drive to see if that helps with the BIOS flashing issue.
Never messed with the motherboard battery, but might try pulling it for a certain amount of time or otherwise replace it.
I have yet to try any re-seating of parts as of now.

Hopefully the details I provided are helpful. Any tips or advice is greatly appreciated.
