Is there any new good version or should i expect the same ****ty instability that i experience many months ago when i tried newer bios versions ?
I would try 2501/2606. Versions 2703/2801 have reduced CPU performance when using a fixed multiplier.

ClintLeo Can someone please share a link to bios version 2703 that has the modded Agesa code?

I'm having problems with 2801 and I know the stock 2703 worked great for me.

Thanks for this, after these options were enabled single core boost now touches 4550 quite often. I played around with negative offset and landed on somewhere around 0.06* (can't remember exact value) for now, doesn't appear to have any negative impact on single/multi-core benchmarks, any lower however and the system will not successfully resume from sleep.

I really wish ASUS would document what the default value is when "Auto" is set in the options.

Also finally managed to get 4x8 @ 3600 14-15-14-14-28 working/stable with Gear Down disabled @ 1.42V, so I think I'm going to leave it there.

I really haven't kept up to date that well with the 3000 series, is negative voltage offset on vcore still recommended against? Honestly the temperatures are surprising on this chip, it seems to run very close to what the 2700X was doing before.

The only unexpected behavior now is the system will always power off temporarily when it is restarted.

Shadowized I think I've hit a wall and would appreciate some advice.

I put this system together recently and so far things have been fine with the kit of memory I bought (F4-3200C14D-32GVK, dual rank b-die) and have been poking at it trying to make it push past my current stable 24/7 settings of 3600MHz 16-16-16-32-48-288-1t @ 1.40v (I could probably reduce the voltage more and it would still be stable), Ideally I aim for 3733-3800MHz but the second I raise it from 3600 MEM/FCLK to even 3666 it just pukes on itself and enters ram training mode, the strangeness I'm having though is that it will occasionally post and get into windows or memtest86+ and go for a little bit without trouble, but when I reboot to change something it will begin failing and going back to ram training again, occasionally getting stuck with a 15 q-code.

I've tried raising the voltages one by one to narrow it down and even went as far as trying with awful timings of 20-20-20-40-80 @ 1.46v, but the end results were relatively the same failure rates on getting past the ram training, maybe 1 in 6 times it works and that won't hold past a reboot or two when wanting to adjust settings. I noticed that I can't set some of the voltages that the dram calculator suggests like vref CHA/B (DRAM CTRL REF Voltage on CHA / CHB) which I noticed don't go anywhere near the 0.72~ range that I should be setting them to, nor VDDIO / VTT which don't get read on the sensors in any program Ive tried.

the only thing I haven't really touched was the CadBus / Setups, but I'm still really new to the platform and at a bit of a loss on what else to try next, I'm in no means unhappy with my ram OC so far but I can't help but feel it can go higher if I can just figure out why it fails with just a mundane bump in frequency, otherwise I can go the other direction and just work on tightening timings further, has anyone experienced similar or know of a setting/timing which would help with what I'm describing?

Pretty sure it error came when board was still on 2606. I updated vie flashback to 2801 as soon as the error 55 appears. I never used any performance bias option. Also in the current setup with the 3600x (running bios 2801) i do not use the performance bias feature. Should i use it?

So what i have been trough: I tested my 2700x on an Crosshair VI from a friend and it gives the same error. Tested his 3600x on my board, running fine. So the CPU is defect. Creating an RMA ticket at AMD support, they accepted it and i needed to send my 2700x to the netherlands. I bought a 3600x in that time because i wasn't sure if it wasn't my fault with to much soc voltage to burn the CPU. But AMD send me a brand new 2700x. I will keep the 3600x tough because RAM is running at 3800 Mhz without problems and performance increased heavily with it.

So thanks again for any advise!
