Same here.
After update to 2004.
Downclock RAM from 3800 to 3733 fix this error.

In any case, it should not be a problem for x470 g7, as we have two ROM chips which can have two different sets of BIOSes.
Good point, was thinking exactly the same way. I would be curious to see if GB would provide upgraded ROM chip for the slot 1 which can be replaced (from 16 to 32).

Cool...but not cool.

I mean, glad it isn't just me...lol

I shut down....removed the 24-pin to the board....reset it, haven't had it since.

I guess I do need to also say that my PSU's 3.3v rail is running way under spec(3.116v). I'm not sure what affect this would have at all...on anything. I've searched the web, but can't seem to find much info on what draws off that rail on modern systems. I do have a replacement(RMA-Cross Ship) coming, it should be here Tuesday.

I know we had a lot of these type errors, not this specific, on Zen2 early bios. I think it was something in the AGESA code, but those were taken care of. Some maybe this is the same type issue.

Like I said, no crashes, odd behavior, BSODS...and since resetting the 24-pin, not one error....baffling for sure.

Thanks for the reply....makes me a bit more comfortable knowing it's not just me.

I do have this pop up in HWiNFO64

WHEA Error: CPU Bus/Interconnect

Anyone have a clue?

EDIT: Event logger just shows error code 19

---Can I ask you where do you have yours?
Using the other slot is not recommended, as it's limited by PCIE 2.0 bandwidth (chipset is linked to the CPU via 4x pcie 2nd gen lane). I also have 970 Evo, and it's fine (my case is of bottom-up variety, so the NVME rarely gets up to 70 even in games). Also, it's short and long NVME sticks will not fit into it.

I've another question about NVME SSDs. I've a NVME 970 Evo Plus (like the one you have I think?) on the first slot, the one closest to the cpu. Can I ask you where do you have yours? My concern is that the first slot, being under the gpu, makes the ssd very hot (70° C during heavy gaming).

The second one is further away from the gpu so it will probably make the ssd run much cooler but if I remember correctly it would run at half the speed. The question is: is that difference noticeable in gaming or everyday use or even at half the speed the Evo Plus will make the whole system run basically the same?
650 W is sufficient. The absolute maximum power draw I've ever seen my UPS report was 550 W, while stressing both my CPU and GPU to their limits. Oh, and that's also with two monitors connected to it, which obviously aren't driven by the computer's power supply.


I have my 970 Evo Plus on the first slot under the GPU and the 970 Evo on the second slot. I haven't noticed any issues and there's no discernible difference in speed between them.

It likely won't be. Since these BIOS updates will drop support for earlier Zen through Zen 2 processors, AMD says they want motherboard manufacturers to require proof of purchase of a Zen 3 processor before allowing users to download them.

I've seen that X570 mobos have an active cooling fan for the chipset itself... so my question is: is our motherboard 100% ok to use with "high" end cpus like 3900X or 3900XT or it may catch fire considering the X470 has no fan on the chipset?

What's your experience? Is it ok or it's better upgrading to a X570 board?

It's perfectly fine to use this motherboard with a 3900X or even a 3950X. It's PCIe 4.0 that makes the X570 chipset use so much power apparently, which isn't a concern on this board since PCI-E 4.0 is disabled by AGESA.
