The other Bias settings arent worth a crap either...Aggressive is unbootable and Gentle is well...too gentle.



To everyone that worked on those bios mods, awesome job. Although AMDs most recent SMU update is too weak on the boosting for me. It does boost a higher single core clock by 25mhz but overall is a performance loss for my setup. The previous one is great for memory and cpu though, its the best bios to date with the 0002+ SMU Mod. The newer firmware seems to drop cpu performance if my memory settings arent a specific setup and the cpu doesnt have a specific voltage. I will keep testing newer mods but for now the 0002+ that Mtrai had uploaded worked best for my specific case. The newer SMU is amazing on the efficiency though.
I see, it was like this on gen 2 ryzen too but you could force it by enalbing "core performance boost" in the bios. I can confirm a small BCLK oc helps these cpu, i went from to 64.9 to 63.5 latency in AIDA like nothing with just 101 bclk... gave it an additional +20mhz just for the sake of seeing more of 4.44 ghz peaks and called it a deal. Now just need to retest the whole setup again i guess XD

mtrai Here we go. New 0002 bios mod based just on The_Stilts 0002 SMU FW replacement this is for both the WIFI and Non-wifi, they are both in the download.

Some highlights and instructions as usual. I am not responsible for any damage to your system so use at your own risk which is pretty much nil due to flashback. But I still need to say it.

Pasting the read me contained within the zip as well. Note I have not yet actually tested the non-wifi version as I do not have that board.

This mod is solely based on the Stilts 002 SMU FW update with bios options un-hidden for both previous Ryzen Gen (1000/2000) and Matisse (3000) CPUs.

Personal changes to defaults:

Mem Over Clock Fail Count is set 2 to help with mem overclock training.

PCIEx 16/8_1 mode is set to Gen 3 in both failsafe and optimal for stability with RX 5700 GPU this will have no effect on earlier gpus. Default is AUTO and would cause a number of issues.

ASUS GRID Install Service is now set to disable in both failsafe and optimal...who needs bloatware.

Install Instrutions:

Must use USB stick for Flash back.

Rename the correct bios you need WIFI or non WIFI to the correct flashback name.

Correct naming for non WIFI is C7H

Correct naming for WIFI is C7HWIFI

Tip for flashback: Flashback can be finicky on USB sticks that work, try more then one.

If you press the button and it only blinks 3 times and then goes solid it is not flashing either due to name not correct, or usb stick issue with flashback.

Thanks MTRAI
Note fan mode is not unhidden as it unhides other useless message but it is still in the read me notes.

I am working a new one based just on the stilt so we can compare the wifi one is done...gonna start on the non wifi shortly after some more coffee. Incidentally I thought of a shorter way to get these out faster since the set up menus rarely change I can re-use the previous hex edited modules. Yesterday redoing the the C7HWIFI using this it only took me about an hour or so vs the about 6 hours with all the hex editing.

I would of had it ready but the damn MS store would not work yesterday morning and eventually me trying to fix finally bonked my windows install and I had to reinstall it and pretty much everything else.

As for performance bias I with you now..these new ones are well just not worth it. And PE4 **** I am not sure what the hell it does now but makes the system unstable, and yess while I can boot with aggressive it will quickly crash in almost anything that stresses anything.

Lastly these new one to play with to see which performs better would of have been out earlier but I rake a sandbur across both my eyelids and for the last week have barely been able to keep my eyes open and look at my pc screen.

both abb and abba do require you to examine all your settings especially your ram settings...especially the end termination ones ie pro odt behaves differently just between the two. While you can use a previous bios settings CMO file from another 002 bios just keep in mind some of the ram timing settings will have to be looked at again. This is a common procedure that NEEDS to be done with any major changes in the bios such a SMU FW swap or bios version change.

Because in idling I also see up to 1.1V, but when it comes to stock those vids in aida are getting 1.325-1.35V. Are there any other settings I need to set unlock higher VID? Second question is in what app I should test 1900MHz Inifnity Fabric Stability, Karhu Ramtest is enough or this really doesn't stress inifnity, but only I/O die where memory controller is and sticks itself?
If you set Vcore Manually in UEFI, IGNORE the VID reading COMPLETELY. VID is only an Identifier, NOT a Voltage. It is only used when Voltage is set to Auto or Offset in the UEFI. As soon as your VCore is set manually in UEFI VID has absolutely NO EFFECT and should be completely ignored. The Voltage you should be looking at is "SVI2 TFN" in HWinfo. Even when Using or Offset Voltage you should ALWAYS be looking at SVI12 TFN regardless, as it is the ACTUAL voltage your CPU is receiving, and therefore is the relevant Voltage you should be concerned with. VID IS ONLY a Value in Voltage that the CPU is Requesting from the VRM, so thats all the number is, a Request from the CPU to the VRM asking for an amount of Voltage. The actual Voltage the CPU receives is based on a number of variables like Vdroop, LLC, ETC, which is why you want to pay attention to an Actual Voltage Readout, and in this case SVI2 TFN is the most accurate. Hope that helps clarify that for you.

Both Karhu and Your Normal Stability Tests like Y-Cruncher, AIDA64, and Blender, (Or whatever Stability test you are comfortable with using) will let you know if you are stable. Karhu will let you know if your Memory is stable at this IF Clock, Your other normal Stability Tests will let you know if Your CPU is stable at your new IF Clock.

The IF Clock effects more then just the RAM, but the entire System, which is why you need to test stability of both RAM and the CPU. Hope this helps.

Did your timings try using tRDWR and tRWRD on <auto>? This may help you.

2501 is NOT an easy bios to set up memory, either try the modded 0002 bios or 2703.

I see quite a few newbies here - could I request that you go to the Tools>Quick Links>Edit Signature (top of this screen) and put in the basic details of your systems - it makes it much easier for us to help you

Well if it is working with the 1700x without an issue then I doubt that it is the board giving you issues. When I had my second C7H fail on me, mostly due to my own doing I decided to go with a X570 board, but due to pricing here in South Africa I ended up getting the MSI Meg X570 Ace which I am pretty happy about, the one thing which made this board good for me is the Qpost LCD on the board. I just cannot see myself using a board without it anymore.

Funny thing is my Msi Meg X570 Ace also gave me issues and had to be RMA, shop told me water marks on board with pictures, I told them it is not water marks but Acetone which will not conduct electricity, you could see the marks was somewhat oily, but I got my refund and all good.
