Only difference between 5220 and 5406 is AGESA code 1003abba to 1004b. It just so happened that I switched from 5220 to 5406 same day I bought 3700x to install instead of my 2700x, When I run tests with2700x and 5406 only difference i could see is minimally lowered initial and maximum CPU voltage. everything else was same. I was even able to use all same saved settings when I switched to 3700x.
So yes, you can safely update to 5406, won't change much and you will have latest BIOS and AGESA.

umeng2002 Mmm... just noticed that turning on CPU virtualization makes the bus speed vary. Bus spread spectrum?

xeizo My X470 Prime is very stable, I have been folding Covid-19 for eight weeks 24/7 now. Using a 3700X and a GTX1070. It just works.

(I wasn't tagged by the script until 19th of April, but I started in March)

My play-PC is another one with 3900X

Something else to consider when picking a new 500 series board. The Prime X570 Pro for sure is just as good.
Yes, I would definitively buy this with x570, all were at top of middle class MBs. Except most probably I'll just get 3900/3950x when they get cheaper.

There is serious problem with ASUS's sensors implementation on the X470:
https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/threads...21/#post-22483
The last time i saw a voltage reading of the chipset was last August 2019. It was always under 50c, so i figured it is no big deal if the sensor is gone.

Anyway, i know others are having issue with fans, which happen to be one of the features this motherboard excels at. My fans are all set in auto except the one for the AIO, which is set to pwm. The cpu fan is set to smoothing with a time of 15sec. At idle or just browsing they are perfectly silent. Gaming, the ac is louder, so still can't hear them. One chasis fan is not showing up, though. Using 6 of the 7 headers.

Check your temps again randomly, esp the gpu hotspot temp. Normally it would just throttle not cause shutdown, though.

Alternatively, you can use HW Monitor just for random checks.

EDIT: Just checked. HW Monitor does not sense GPU temp. GPUZ does. It could be GPU driver related, too.

If your PSU has OTP, then it might be being triggered.

Apologies for the multi edit. But if it is the PSU overheating, then it might help to strap an additional fan on the outlet side to help cool it down.

MishelLngelo Last instability I had was when when I tried to correct voltages with too much of negative voltage offset, had to settle for -0.0325 and since than it's rock stable.
