Hello,

What are you seeing in your BIOS that makes you believe its not bootable? Have you installed Windows on the drive?

My Windows 10 is installed on a 500GB Samsung 970 Evo+ drive and this is what I see in my BIOS. Under Boot configuration I don't see the 970 Evo listed as bootable. Boot option #1 shows my 960 Evo drive and Boot option #2 shows my 850 Evo. No 970 Evo+ shown. As long as you see under Advanced NVME configuration your 960 Pro listed you should be good to install your Windows on it.

Also when you install your Windows I recommend you disconnect all other drives accept your 960 Pro.

All core clock boost

After reading some interesting posts about all core clock boost I thought I would check out my system behavior in more detail. Previously when running CBR20 multi-thread benchmark my 3900X would all core clock boost at most to 4050MHz but on average around 4000 - 4025MHz. I had not monitor it's behavior using RM for some time. This time, using RM, I noticed that when CBR20 was running that it was maxing out PPT, which by default is set to 142 watts. So, I went into the bios and changed PBO to use manual settings for PPT, TDC and EDC. It turns out for PPT it has to be set into 2 locations in the bios for it to take affect. I first set PPT to 160 watts, under this setting CBR20 would still max out PPT but the core clock had increased. Next I increased PPT to 180 watts, under this setting CBR20 would have PPT running at about 97% and the CPU core clock increased to around 4100MHz. I ultimately set the PPT to 200 watts. Depending on what my ambient temperature is, my all core clock now seems to be being limited by temperature. Under CBR20 my max temperature, as reported by RM, is around 80 C. The core voltage is running around 1.4 -1.41. The best all core clock I have seen since setting the PPT 200 watts is around 4125MHz with an ambient temp of around 67 F. I also have my multiplier at x10 and frequency at +200MHz, not sure if these 2 settings have any influence on the all core clock boost. At least I was finally able to figure out to get an increase in my all core clock boost.


My best CBR20 multi core benchmark score went from 7162 to 7439 under auto cpu setting plus the changes to PBO. If I manually do an OC on a per CCX basis I can achieve an even higher score but I do not prefer to run that way exclusively.

Thanks for answering, understood

I'm still working on memory OC (and lowering latency) and it might be helpful. Thank you. I will flash it, test and report my results if you have it.


Also, if you don't mind, a question. I changed some setting while OCing my memory, and observed a large increase in DRAM copy bandwidth at 3800MHz/1900 Fclk- something like 64GB/sec copy, with Read and write being 60GB/sec and 58GB/sec respectively (Copy is usually around 62GB/sec now). I cannot reproduce this, and I'm on BIOS 1001, but it was an option in AMD CBS. I'm wondering if you (or anyone else) knows of what setting this might have been, I think I might have had BankGroupSwap disabled, or possibly BankGroupSwap instead of BankGroupSwap_alt


Thanks.

Thank you kindly sir. I'll give this a shot.

Again, its not complete build since the new control is not available in the existing CBS.
The CBS itself can be updated, but that would result in issues with recovery and Hii database in general, and because of that it is not done.

I've used it couple weeks now without any issues, but then again at least in my case there is no difference in behavior compared to 1.0.0.3ABBA builds either.

Note that this is an unofficial, modified bios.
It can be updated with either Flashback or Flashrom (with header stripped).
