Nighthog As I've reached the limits of the available settings I went and looked at my Biostar BIOS too see if there was anything there.
So I loaded up the BIOS using AMIBCP.
Nothing that sticks out outright or hidden settings unless they are in the AMD section (where do I even begin to find what I need there?)

I wanted to find some more settings for Memory but the things I wanted I did not find in there.

I tested to change a failsafe value that was a little sketchy Gear down mode "disabled" --> "enabled", saved without issue and then tried to flash with regular Biostar BIOS update utility. Seemed to work but in BIOS I didn't see the name I had for the file but the "stock" and either way the change didn't seem to matter, no improvement. Either it didn't flash properly or the setting has no difference for what I wanted to try. (higher MEM OC)

No complaints about signatures and whatnot oddly enough.

Any suggestions?

EDIT: made another change and tried to show something hidden but it didn't show. probably my changes weren't actually implemented the way I tried. Will have to do it the way mentioned here it seems if I want to try.

GB is not so good with high clock RAMS... Maybe Gaming 7 can be.
Sorry for my bad English.
I really hope that with the new microcode your board will be endowed with all the missing features, do not worry. The probability is very high

1usmus All boards are limited to 105W (PPT), 95A (TDC) and 140A (EDC). Perhaps low-end and mid boards will get less limited boost. But the problem lies not in this, in the low operating voltage, because of which the converter efficiency is low . That is why a 16-phase MEG motherboard was created.

Grin One chiplet only will be supported on AB320/350/450 mobos. It’s not my personal opinion just a rumor.

Knodl @1usmus,


Please add a hint to backup your mobos SN & UUID before flashing with Afuefix64 in your guide.



Cheers

Strange when they did support 95w TDP 1800x at launch and 105w TDP 2700x with official BIOS update.
