All normal, don't worry. The higher voltages only apply when one core is boosted. If you see 1.4V+ for a longer time on more cores then you have an issue.

I updated the bios, added 2x16GB 3200CL16 Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM and changed DRAM voltage to 1.35V 3200MHz. First Cinebench run shows 4945 MC and 505 SC, very high scores when compared to what I've seen online.

I attached a screenshot with more info.

I also tested disabling fast boot, NVME support and ensured everything related to CPU was set on Auto. Nope.

But the thing is system does not even try properly POST with 3700X, I mean with ryzen 1700 in, leds are flashing between white/amber (near post code display), and it takes long time to POST.

With 3700X in, power goes on, cpu fans spin, no led switchcing and then just 07.

Btw, all mem settings which I tried I also booted 1st with ryzen 1700 to ensure those work, then turned off system and swapped CPU.

<sarcastic>Hint for Asus: Start hosting annual competition who is the fastest tearing down system and putting back. I will participate as with your QA my skills are improving every day! </sarcastic>


Pfffffft the point why I decided to go for 3rd gen was to get easy performance boost without all the hassle assembling new system, reinstalling windows and software... looks like it is unavoidable and need to continue with RMA, which means I am without system week+... why can't Asus comment on anything?
I am still in the exact same boat. No LEDs, nothing - straight to 07. I even tried a different type of RAM, A cheap 1.2v stick, no dice.

I still have a week to return my 3900X, I will give Asus until this weekend to get a new bios before I have to return the chip. I don’t think a board RMA will fly for me as the 3900X is not a supported chip (officially).

If I do have to return it, I may wait a month or so and try again with a 3800X after BIOS matures.

This is painful, since I bought first gen Ryzen years ago to get an AM4 board, specifically waiting for this day. I could have bought intel and been gaming at higher FPS for the last 2 years, but I bought into AM4 for the forward compatibility and to support AMD (competition is good). Frustrated!

Thanks for your screenshot, great numbers!

What voltage did you set them to get these speeds? And which board revision do you have?

I still can't get mine above 3200...

DevionNL C5 error only occurs when going over 3600MHz DDR4 speeds (from my own experience) with GSkill 4133's, if I go higher or require more voltage it will C5 at cold boot.

Brko I have C6H + R5 3600 with BIOS 7106 for 5 days now.
Not a single issue and never saw C5 error, even when l power off PC and pull out the power cord.

Set Boot RAM Voltage on 1.40V, digi power settings as they were with R5 2600.

Everything is working OK except mouse in BIOS.

In Windows not a single BSOD or CTD during gaming (1903 latest updates + latest AMD driver 1.07.07).

Currently l set my CPU @ 4.1 GHz w 1.265V and is all OK. It has been on 4.2GHz w 1.33V but temperatures were not quite OK so l lower 100MHz and CPU voltage.

Did not try PBO/AutoOC with this BIOS. RAM is @ 3466MHz 14-14-14-30 and it will be tinkered more when we will have updated Calc and more polished BIOS.

So far so good. Satisfied with it so far (l had R5 1600 and R5 2600 on the same board from April 2017).

My 3900x never ever has seen anything above 4350MHz on one core, With or without PBO. Allcore under is load is about 4100MHz.
There are people on other forums seeing proper boost speeds. Albeit on different motherboards. One suspects its all down to poorly implemented and old bioses.

I was sure i made it clear that i know the person i spoke to didn't know anything when i said i'd escalated my case with Asus support lol..

anyway, i got a new message this morning, either this guy doesn't know anything either, or there's something up with the 7201 bios you guys are trying out right now, here's what was said:

"Dear ****** ****,

Thank you for contacting ASUS and raising your complaint with our complaint team.
We are terribly sorry to be advised that you are experiencing issues with your ASUS product.

Kindly be advised that as soon there is a new BIOS update available, our team in HQ Taiwan will make an announcement at the Asus website.
Till that time, we have no new BIOS update for the motherboard available.

Our apologies for the inconveniences caused to you."

This lack of any kind of proper product support is very serious, i know the x370 based boards are old now, but that doesn't mean they should be as bad as they have been in communicating, i mean AFAIK the x570 boards customers are in pretty much so the same boat. If i end up having to upgrade to an x570 board, it won't be an Asus one.
