Logue Is this new chipset validated? Where is it from? Just asking because the AMD website still lists 2.07.14.327 version as latest. Any actual improvements?

WinterActual ASUS are kinda lazy/clueless about this for a long time, ain't they? This is my 4 or 5th BIOS update since I have the mb and this problem/bug is still present..

Use auto first and apply that, then you can set the fans to manual and set whatever you like! Use the graphical interface to do it though (yeah it sucks balls) since using the text field inputs doesn't seem to allow certain numbers which is ********..

Yeah, I use an external Noctua controller for my fans as they're all high speed so hitting 100% at 75*C is super annoying.

I played arouind with Proc ODT and in my case memory gets unstable below 34 most stable been 36 from start of zen on Teamgroup memory.
I might go back to 2801 which was best for me... 2606 is way too buggy.

I hope we get that one too because I would like to see the improved fan control function. If they finally removed the 60% lower limit for the DC fans.

I've not run any proper tests yet, but I can tell you what I've noticed straight away... using my 3733 profile with PE3 and EDC 'bug' (or not as the case may be) - as close to the profile that I had running on 3103.

Proc ODT had to be on auto (36.9) or no boot. 3101 boots with Proc ODT as low as 30, though doesn't do me any good having it any lower.

The bios is setting my CLDO_VDDP at 1.1v! This suggests to me that bios would be setting VDDG at 1.2v (based on my experiments bios puts .1v distance, not .05v), though I've not checked this properly yet.

Boot time is VERY quick! So quick that if trying to get safe mode by holding power button in, it often doesn't work and you have to go through the lengthy CMOS reset and boot.

I have to mention PCIE 4 - All these bioses had many versions before with PCIE 4 enabled - on purpose. AMD have disabled this feature for no reason at all. Everything is running well from the PCIE 4 root, which made windows reload some drivers to take account of. Shame I don't have a cards sitting around to test it....

RTT and CADBus are the same here - 7, 3, 1 and 0, 0, 0 respectively.

CPU idle voltages are lower, CB R15 Multi score is just under that of same profile on 3103 (apart from no PE3). SC seems worse so far but not properly tested.... which leads me to....

PBO - it's NOT working the same as on 3103! Had same manual settings as 3103 - 4096, 4096, 20. The EDC 'bug' doesn't seem to be present - EDC NEVER exceeds 100% in the few tests run so far, though multi score is nearly as high as ever.

Don't have a huge amount of time today, but I will be doing more tests over the weekend, especially with voltages. If you want me to test anything on this bios, let me know!
